  1. You will have some bottlenecking at 1080p in most CPU intensive games. My i5 9600K is OC'd to 4.9Ghz and it bottlenecks my RX 5700 in AC Odyssey and BFV Multiplayer. However you will still get a noticeably performance boost by upgrading your GPU.
  2. Check your temperatures and RAM usage. If your FPS drops after playing for a while, it could be caused by thermal throttling or not having enough RAM. However 16GB should be enough but it would still check it. You could also try upgrading GPU drivers. Forza Horizon 4 is a pretty CPU intensive game if you play races with lots of opponents. Sometimes I get 70-90% CPU usage on my 6-core i5 9600K which is OC'd to 4.9Ghz. Your i3 8300 only has 4 cores with pretty low 3.7Ghz clock speed so high CPU usage is normal. However you should still be able to get decent framerates.
  3. No it wasn't It had relatively low turbo speed of 3.7Ghz when using all cores. I was also stuck with 2133Mhz RAM speed since I was using a B150-motherboard. I had CPU bottlenecking in Watch Dogs 2 and BF1 and I didn't even bother to buy AC Odyssey or BFV before upgrading my CPU and motherboard. I was using GTX 1070 then.
  4. I had a i7 6700 and it was bottlenecking my GTX 1070 even with 60Hz monitor. Upgraded to a i5 9600K, OC'd it to 4.9Ghz and paired it with some 3600Mhz CL16 RAM and got a very big performance boost (Cinebench R15 score 825 -> 1212). However my i5 9600K is still bottlenecking my RX 5700 in AC Odyssey, BFV Multiplayer and Far Cry 5. So if you are using a 1080p 144Hz monitor, you will definitely have some CPU bottlenecking in demanding games. However upgrading to 2060S/2070S will still give you much more FPS than you are currently getting on your GTX 970.
  5. I've done some changes to my 1080p 144Hz gaming setup. Pretty happy with. However I might change my CPU later this year. CPU: Intel Core i5 9600K 4.9Ghz 1.316V Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390M Gaming CPU Cooler: Thermalright Macho Rev.B RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) HyperX Predator DDR4 3600Mhz CL16 GPU: Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 8GB GDDR6 1850Mhz/1840Mhz 0,993V SSD1 (OS): Kingston A2000 500GB NVME SSD2 (Games): Kingston A400 480GB SSD3 (Games): Kingston A400 480GB PSU: Corsair RM550x Case: Fractal Design Define Mini C Case fans: 2 x Arctic P14, Arctic P12 Monitors: Samsung C24FG73 + S24F350H Keyboard: Logitech G810 Mouse: Logitech G502 Mousepad: Logitech G204 Headset: HyperX Cloud 2
  6. R7 3700X is 350€ and my R5 3600 was 160€ so it's over twice as expensive ?
  7. I was actually going to wait but everything was -25% at my local store so I couldn't resist. I could sell my i5 9600K for the same price as I bought the R5 3600. Stuttering in AC Odyssey and BFV is so annoying and my i5 is clearly holding back the GPU.
  8. Right now I have Intel i5 9600K and I have overclocked it to 4,9Ghz. However I get 100% CPU usage and stuttering in AC Odyssey, BFV MP and COD MW and I'm also worried about future games. New consoles have 8C16T CPUs which will probably make PC games more demanding at some point too. I'm playing on a 1080p 144Hz monitor and my overclocked RX 5700 can push pretty high framerates. I got brand new Ryzen R5 3600 and ASRock B450M Pro4 with 30 days return policy for very cheap and I could sell my old parts and switch to AMD and it would only cost me like 10-20€. So should I switch to Ryzen? More and more games should be able to take advantage of Ryzen's 12 threads. I believe R5 3600 will last much longer and AMD also doesn't require new motherboard for CPU upgrading.
  9. Upgrading to 19.12.2 gave me around 4-5% performance increase on my RX 5700. The new AMD Control panel is so much easier to use and Watch Dogs 2 is finally playable since it stuttered very bad before. Now I'm running 19.12.3 and no issues so far.
  10. You probably have the Rev 1.0 version of the Windforce RTX 2060 which has a crappy cooling solution. You can find many cases with Google so you are not the only one suffering from this issue. Those cards run hot. Here's an example: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/rtx-2060-gigabyte-oc-reaches-80-84-degrees.251769/ If I remember right Gigabyte improved the cooling solution with Rev. 2 model which allowed lower temperature and noise. However I'm not sure about the Gigabyte's return policy.
  11. I suspect that you will get a very nice performance boost if you get +3000Mhz dual channel RAM with low latency. Maybe 15-30% boost in CPU bounded scenarios. Also you could try overclocking your R5 1600 to something like 4,0Ghz. I don't know very much about overclocking Ryzens or picking up correct RAM since I've been always using intel but doing these should definitely help you getting higher framerates.
  12. Is your R5 1600 running at stock speed? Also only one RAM stick with pretty low speed isn't a good idea since Ryzen likes fast dual channel RAM. Faster dual channel RAM and overclocking could help. Your CPU might be bottlenecking now. EDIT: Did you run DDU and remove old drivers before installing new drivers for the RTX 2060?
  13. I'm also having some driver issues with my RX 5700. It was much worse before but driver updates have fixed most of the problems. However there's still two issues that I find rather annoying. - Watch Dogs 2 runs out of VRAM immediatilly and I get massive stutter. Far Cry 5 also had 8GB VRAM usage at 1080p but removing high resolution texture pack fixed it. Possible memory leak? - AMD Overlay doesn't always show FPS. It's a pretty clever solution for monitoring temps, framerate etc. since I had issues with MSI Afterburner. However it's frustraring when the most important information disappears during gaming. I contacted AMD three times and finally they promised that they will investigate these problems and try to fix them in the future driver update.
  14. I have 144Hz Freesync monitor and I tried both Vsync on and off. I could try 60Hz and Vsync. I got this GPU yesterday so I think I got the latest drivers installed. CPU temperature fluctuates between 60-70C while playing Far Cry 5. I could try it. However it's not easy since day is much more demanding than night when I usually get stable 144FPS so framerate fluctuates a lot. I thought my Windows 10 was up to date but there was actually a big update and I installed it. I could wipe the drivers using DDU and download again to see if it helps.
  15. I know but my minimum framerates are much lower now. On my GTX 1070 I didn't really drop under 60FPS but now I have FPS drops which result to minimum 30FPS. 4,9Ghz 6-core i5 should be able to push faster than that.
