I bought a 580 Matrix Platinum here just before the 680 came out, whoops. I used that until 2016 I think, that is when I got a 970 FTW. It was pretty good. Someone must have tampered with it, it would drop clocks like mad with a decent load. I found a 980 Classified shortly after that, so early 2017 I think. I rolled with that until I could get a 3070Ti and PSU bundle, got that in 2022 I think.. Son used my 980 until I saw it was having a struggle at times. So I bought 4070Ti last year. It has been a good card. Does things people that don't own it say it cant lol. Just like the 3070Ti.. and since I have two sons, I might need to get me a 5080 this time around :)
It looks like I'm more often downgrading than upgrading. If I remember it correctly then on my gaming PC it looks like this:
GTX970 -> GTX1080Ti-> GTX2060 -> Vega56 ->RTX3070 -> RX6800XT -> RTX3060 -> RTX4070 -> RTX3060 ...
