  1. words can't describe how incredibly helpful you were, you num
  2. thanks guys, seems to be the ryzen 2600 is a capable chip and it won't bottleneck a 2080Ti except in some cpu intensive games (obviously)
  3. Seriously, how noticeable of a bottleneck would it be if I upgrade my GPU to a 2080Ti in my Ryzen 5 2600 PC? Its currently a GTX1080 and with 16gb 3000Mhz CL15, enough power and pcie to back up the upgrade. Just wondering about the CPU Edit: for 1440p 144Hz gaming in AAA and early access games Thanks
  4. actually I can only buy in a month or so because of access to a cheaper market etc. So If its good to go, great. but if another few weeks would make a difference, should I wait out those weeks?
  5. for how long would you say? Edit: by this I mean to ask if Nvidia is planning anything this last quarter or has leaked something
  6. Been out of the loop for a while, I dug my head into work and away from the PC. Think I have enough saved up for an upgrade though. Current GPU is a gtx1080 Armor with a corsair H80i v2 cooler fitted on. I think I wanna move to a 2080Ti for 1440p 144hz gaming, need high frames on my usual AAA games and other heavy hitters like ARK, minecraft, DXball, roadrash etc. the usual. BUT, usually i do a lot of research before I make decisions with a lot of money involved and my hands are halfway tied these days so I beg the question to you folks; Is there some kind of "super" or other upgrade coming for the 2080Ti? Is there a consensus on it that I'm not aware of like "don't get it"? Did I completely miss an alternate option that might have come out recently perhaps an AMD or a leak etc? What are your recommendations for high frames in 1440p on things like witcher 3 and other new titles and upcoming ones? I thank you all for any reply you might leave behind. Sincerely, thank you guys. rest of the specs: 16gb 3000Mhz 15CL ram Ryzen 2600 @ 4.2Ghz on MSI B450M motherboard
  7. 2K is technically 1080p, 3k would be 1440p which I think you mean but the other commentors are nums or just playing with you to not realize this obvious mistake. (Vertical number of resolution times 2 is usually how you get the "k" number. 4k has 2000-something pixels vertically). For a 1440p 144Hz to be utilized I would use a 2080 for the little bit of edge in fps (you wont get it on most AAA games) and it has the stronger feature of Ray Tracing. Easy choice Edit: I would just stick to using the full resolution instead of the "k" branding, its only mostly used in marketing and for 4k
  8. Hey guys, so a couple months ago I got myself a Kraken G12 with an H80i v2 for my GTX 1080 Armor OC. This, I feel, is an OP cooler for the task as my temps are literally never above 45c on load while my CPU goes upto 65/75. (picture below). I had some heating issues with the stock cooler where it would throttle after 82c on load. Now I have the opportunity to swap out the cooler, maybe use the H80iv2 on my Ryzen 2600 while I use something a little less overpowered and preferably with a bit more flexible tubing. These cables are so Tight I feel like I will tear them off or snap them off the block. Too much stress on the gpu for my comfort. Any users out there with a recommendation for a good 120mm AIO for a kraken+gtx1080? (my current cooler for the 2600 is a Wraith Prism which looks amazing but I might as well have the space H80iv2 on it if I replace the gpus cooler with a new one. I can only put this AIO around and mount it successfully in 1 place in two orientations) Thoughts?
  9. Hey So I was thinking about upgrading my cpu and mobo. Currently - MSI B450-M Gaming Plus + Ryzen 5 2600 Thing is, I don't think I need the upgrade to Zen 2 as of now, and all of Intels products carry a huge premium (mobo, cooler). Rest of the Specs - 16Gb 2933Mhz C15 Ram and GTX 1080 2100Mhz Ryzen 3000 is better than my current chip but were talking about cpu performance increases which only give ~20% frames increase max on avg. For that, its not worth the price right? My idea now is to wait to see what Intel comes up with in response next year and get that. I can hope that they will be cheaper because of the competition and faster than AMD as we already see right? What are your thoughts on this? Will Intel's next lineup be the right choice? Will their "intel premium" be reduced because of the competition? Can we hope for AMD to beat them in gaming performance or will Intel never be dethroned? Could use your opinions and thoughts on this to further my understanding. Thank you!
  10. have you checked hard disk activity? and CPU utilization? I know its a bit limited in Win7 so try HWMonitor and see which one is hitting 100%
  11. Design choice, I quite like it. More character than a full black look (I understand people prefer this sometime too ). Its called a two-tone, very common, basic and popular way to give something a bit of added aethetic appeal. - eg:
  12. A few things I have tried when my rig underperforms - -Setting power saving mode to ultra performance (even in a desktop) -Going into Control Panel of Nvidia to make sure its using the GPU and not the cpu's grpahics. -Checking overclocks and drivers -Using RivaTuner (or any other monitoring software) to see utilization and clocks to further see what is throttling/under performing Hope this helps. You might also check the minecraft forums to see if there is something preventing your PC from performing higher. As far as I can say, don't blame the card, it shouldn't be "underwhelming" Edit: one more thing, the minecraft video settings have a setting for fps limit which I reduced without reading it back when I first started playing. Maybe check that too
  13. you can expect those card hitting the market soon. What I can recommend is that the orignal 2060 and 2070s will experience a clearance price drop because nvidia has stopped production on those. If you see a really good deal on that I would get one. Otherwise its only a matter of time for the supers to follow suit
