Wait until Dec 13 and see what the 7900XTX can do and at what price. Also see what that does to market prices.

Echo what @moocow says.

Some other questions:
- What resolution do you play your games at?
- Do you care about ray tracing?
- Are you using a G-Sync/Freesync monitor and do you care about supporting that tech?

Yeah.. if you don't care much about RTX, 6900 xt will stomp a 3070 Ti all day.

But as mentioned above, you should wait for AMD launch as it will change prices

Right now, AMD GPUs get you more FPS/$ without a doubt. Nvidia cards lose some FPS/$, and in place of that you get better ray tracing and DLSS (for games that support it, if it suits you).

While there are lots of people that always buy nvidia, I would personally (and recommend to you) to buy AMD based on current pricing if you are focused on gaming.

However, I will backup everyone else that commented and recommend you wait to see what what the imminent AMD launch does to pricing.

There's a 6900XT that's half price at Canada Computers ($799CAD), so perhaps that's what's driving this question.

If you are getting a good deal on the 6900XT, I think it's a fine choice. Even with the new Radeon cards coming, they'll still be priced higher. I'm not certain AMD has as much excess inventory as NVIDIA, so uncertain of any "clear out" sales.

I don't think ray tracing is a big deal, it's pretty when you are standing still looking around in game, but once the action gets moving, I'm not sure how beneficial it is.

That has been my position on it from the beginning. And if you don't have it you won't miss it! ;)

I must admit though, I do really like HDR when it's done well, different tech I know, but I really thought it was a gimmick until I experienced it.

I still think that ray tracing is a big deal from a developer point of view, if the tools support it. The ability to drop in lighting that just works and not have to program in the voodoo they developed over the years is what I am thinking. From a user standpoint gamers don't concentrate so much on the "pretty" aspect once the gaming gets hot, as Lysrin points out, but we still like our games to look good.

It would be interesting to get a view from a programming and development perspective on the usefulness though.

I believe JD pointed that out. I just agreed :)
