Looking to upgrade video card

hi all,
i'm looking to upgrade my gpu for the following setup:

i7 4970k
asus maximus hero vii
32 GB ram
RX570 8GB
Seasonic plus bronze 520W PS
Samsung WUXGA 1920x1200 60hz monitor

i'll use my existing card for another build for my brother.
What would be the next best card for my monitor? i do not plan on upgrading to a 120hz high resolution monitor anytime soon.
Looking forward to your suggestions/offers.

Thank you,

If you're overclocking the CPU then you could likely get into a 1080ti without bottleneck. If you're not OCing the cpu then lesser card.

At 1080 60hz you don't really need much anyways. Perhaps a GTX 1070.

I have a Vega 64 floating around for sale but I think that's going to be overkill for what you need.

Would you be interested in a 1080ti? It is in mint condition as I put it in my Alienware Graphics Amplifier and did not use it often.

It has compatibility issue for few games with the AGP...so considering to sell it. I can provide its Amazon receipt but it has passed warranty.

Pls let me know if you are interested...

PS: It's the "EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC Black Edition, 11GB GDDR5X" which has great reviews:

i'm also interested in the rx590 or gtx 1660 as price is a factor ($250 max). The 1070 looks to be out of my price range now.

1070 should be doable for $250-ish if you're lucky. $275, definitely.

On FB Marketplace I see some 1070 Ti for $300!

There was a 1660ti for $200 on FB marketplace earlier this evening - you should definitely be able to find something decent in your price range. Especially now that the 3000 series cards will be coming soon...
