They also hired Raja Koduri, who was the Chief Architect at AMD's Radeon Group (and also worked on Apples mobile chipsets) for their upcoming GPU's and Chris Hook who has handled AMD's marketing since the old ATI days.

AMD is doing well to compete with Nvida in the low-mid ranged GPUs. But high end, we might need Intel to compete with Nvida for that, unless Navi turns out amazing

r9 380 randomly died on me

waiting on my tax return to snag an RTX 2070

i'm hopping my Xeon 1231 ( i7 4770) won't bottleneck it too badly as I can't afford to upgrade my mobo, RAM, and CPU all at once.

Considering upping my rig to 32gb of DDR3

I mostly use the PC for video editing, but game as well.

Also snagging a 500gb SSD to throw in there while I'm at it.

I'm excited.

It'd depend on what settings you're using and results you're expecting. Far as I've seen, if you're seeing a decent gap in performance between 3770k/4770k type CPUs and modern stuff, chances are the results are highly playable either way (some of the examples here for instance, though granted that's using OC'ed older models not stock). Or tests like this one that do include stock clocks - there's a definite gap, but 60hz panel owners (so, most of them), aren't even equipped to see a difference anyway. If you're looking at sub-60fps performance, chances are you're GPU limited.

Perhaps the most comparable benchmark of how it will perform, video has haswell's (and other generations) benchmarked with a GTX 1080Ti (which is more comparible to the 2080 than that 2070, but it paints a picture).

As said above if you are playing at 60hz, no issue. Yes you will be bottlenecked, but not in a way you will notice, I don't see a Haswell i7 holding you back in any titles to the point you wont hit 60fps, thus even notice it.
