  1. I got an offer for the 2080ti for 650$... That's insanely cheap, so I think I'll go for it. The 3800x is too pricy for me atm, and the GPU deal is a "take it or leave it" one. How bad do you think my current CPU will bottleneck the gpu? Also, is upgrading to the 3600x worth it?
  2. What would you recommend upgrading to CPU wise?
  3. hey I currently have a Ryzen 5 1600, 16 gigs of ram, and the EVGA 1070 FTW edition. I recently got a monitor as a gift, and it goes all the way up to 240 Hz. I play all sorts of games, both graphics heavy games like AC: Odyssey, Borderlands 3, LOTR: Shadow of War etc. and games that aren't as graphics heavy like cities skylines, League of legends and Dota 2. with my current setup i can't get solid 240 fps, even in games like league of legends - so i was considering a GPU upgrade. thing is, i wasn't sure whether my current CPU will cause a bottleneck and prevent me from reaching the fps i want. any advice? P.S. I never overclocked my CPU or GPU. BUT I did opened up afterburner for the first time yesterday and tried the OC scanner. I left the fan speed at auto, but I did increase the Power and temp limit to the max. didn't play at all since, so I don't know how it affects my games.
  4. Important note: my budget can move anywhere from 1000-1500 USD, that's why I went for the 1070
  5. 1. Budget & Location Live in Israel, my budget is around 4000-5000 Israeli shekels. Which amounts to about 1000 - 1500 USD. 2. Aim Gaming, mostly AAA games. I've played almost every major game from RPG type games to shooters to RTS. 3. Monitors 1 monitor 4. Peripherals No, I've a Corsair k70 keyboard and a steelseries mouse. No need for peripherals. 5. Why are you upgrading? I've been compromising on quality with most games lately, and can't seem to get steady frames even when I game at 1080. 6. what I'm looking for No offense to AMD, but I really don't like the company's reputation... So unless it affects performance in a major way, I'd like to stick to intel and nvidia. Also, I've never overclocked a computer before. I am open minded, and wouldn't mind trying to overclock, but it's not a requirement for me. I'd been happy to hear some recommendations, specifically on the CPU and motherboard. Motherboard: I'm looking for a motherboard that has 2 expansion slots, 4 slots for ram, could allow for potential overclocking. CPU: literally looking for a CPU that wouldn't be the limiting factor in my system. I don't want the CPU to be the bottleneck when I game. CPU cooling: if I'm not overclocking, the stock cooler should work... But if I'll overclock I'd like to stick to air cooling. Ram: 8-16 gigs of ram. In Israel I can get 2 stick (4gb each) for about a 100 USD. GPU: literally the cheapest 1070 I can fine. The cheapest I found here was the Asus duel gtx1070 for around 530 USD. Power supply: I'd prefer a modular one. I'm looking for a cheap reliable PSU, enough wattage to support the build with just a tad to spare. Case: I don't really mind how the inside of the system looks like, nor do I care about the case. It'll be beneath my desk at home. Looking for a pretty large case, that'll fit the GPU and PSU, doesn't need rgb or tempered glass or anything fancy. As many USB slots as possible, with dust filters and decent airflow. My previous PC has an sad and a hard drive that I'll take with me to this new build, and an extension card that has two Ethernet ports ( I have a cable running straight from the home router to my PC, and an access point that's also connected to my PC, while the connections are bridged within windows). These are pretty much the only salvageable components I can take with me. I'd be happy if u guys could recommend a build and tell me what you think, I am pretty new to PC building so I'd love to hear your opinion and criticism. Thanks in advance, Jonathan
  6. skyrim ulta modded, fallout 4, dota 2, cities skyline. these are the games i go to when i just finished a new game / when i'm bored of whatever big release I downloaded.
  7. a build very similar to one that was already here. this is the one i'd go with, even though the psu is overkill: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/JonH1534/saved/cFnxFT
  8. because i really need to swap my 220 gig, 4 year old hard drive. fast boots time? amazing load time? yes please. this is why everyone should buy an ssd. don't have the extra cash to upgrade my machine, so this will be awesome
