AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 / Core i7-7700K @ 4.20GHz

It is worth noting that the RX Vega 64 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX Vega 64 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. It is important to know that RX Vega 64 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2017 .

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 / Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz

It is clear that the GTX 1070 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. In terms of memory, the GTX 1070 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2016 .

Should I buy RX VEGA 64 or GTX 1070 if I have a chance to buy RX VEGA 64 for 350 euro (used, 3 months, only for gaming) and I can buy the GTX 1070 for 400 euro (used, 2 years, gaming).

Which one should I buy? I know that gtx 1070 is better at power usage, but it's used for already 2 years...

So please help me decide!!!

Providing you have a sufficient power supply to care for the RX Vega AND it hasn’t been used for mining, then I wouldn’t personally say go for the 64. It is a much more powerful card and currently by your prices cheaper than a 1070.

Especially with the Vega card been much newer and only been used for 3 months it is a much better option in my opinion.
