Default Upgrading from graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti

I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card, and I'm somewhat inexperienced in such things. I have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti and I don't know which graphics cards I should use as the upgrade. For reference, I am using a gaming computer made by someone I used to know, and it is a win 10 pc, with an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz (8 cores) CPU.

Depends on your budget.

It's not set in stone, but no more than $1000 ideally.

No brainer then, as long as the rest of your PC is up to the task I think you'd do well with an RTX 2080.

What are the rest of your specs and what monitor do you have?

Alright, I have dual acer monitors (not sure about the model) and as I mentioned, I'm somewhat new to this, what specs exactly are you asking about?

Your entire PC specs (CPU/RAM/motherboard/PSU/etc.) and brand/model of monitor(s).
