    Whelp, good thing that Kyle has survived The Verge Purge.

    Enough for upgrade to 2060?

    Having an additional 8GB will improve the quality of gameplay in most modern games as most games + the basic OS functions now consume in the neighborhood of 7.0 to 7.5GB of RAM, which means that any interruption from another app or other OS processes could lead to a very noticeable drop in frame rate, otherwise few games currently consume more than the 8GB (plus basic OS operations) by themselves, but that will soon change, so I highly recommend an upgrade to 16GB of RAM, after you upgrade your GPU.

    Enough for upgrade to 2060?

    It's plenty good, though I would recommend replacing that PSU when it reaches 5 to 7 years of age, but it is still an 80 plus PSU, what you are losing out with on that cheaper unit is the life expectancy of 10+ years, and the power efficiency. At this time I would recommend getting more 8GB more of RAM.

    Questions about a new sli setup.

    You will have plenty of headroom with your 4690k, people pair that with much faster GPUs like the 2080, and 2070.

    What GPU should I pair with a i7 8700?

    Any GPU you feel like, the 8700 can take them all.

    FX 4300 Rig upgrade ideas and help

    As you mentioned, your first priority is to replace that aging CPU, Probably the only thing in your upgrade plan that I would recommend adjusting is that you are probably going to want 16GB of RAM as in many game 8GB is starting to become the bare minimum, and will soon become a bottleneck in titles.

    CS GO Low FPS despite good hardware

    Welcome to the LTT forums! CSGO is an older CPU bound game, (from back when devs thought way faster more powerful CPUs, were the future for the late 2010s, whoops) so at that resolution with a 7600 it is to be expected.
  9. Your welcome! P.S. if you upgrade your CPU and MOBO you need DDR4 not DDR3 which was used with the 2600k.
  10. 16GB would be preferable, as 8GB is now like the bare minimum, if you have anything running in the background you are going to feel it. Any major upgrades to the MOBO or CPU should include an upgrade to at least 16GB. Otherwise you should be fine for a while.
  11. Unless you have a fairly good reason for upgrading your CPU, I imagine that unless you like to play City Skylines, or Crysis, you could probably wait another GPU generation or 2 until you have to upgrade that CPU, MOBO, and RAM.
  12. A 2600k is capable of powering the RTX2060, and if it can't fully power the RTX 2070 it sure comes close. At the moment Ryzen is a better budget/productivity offering in comparison to Intel's chips, while Intel still has the overall lead in performance, the performance comes at a notable cost.

    White substance on back of GPU

    Yes, few if any manufacturers warranty damage due to the operating environment.
