    i7 9700k Bottleneck/Problems

    If you aren't running the same CPU and motherboard from the FPS charts or reviews you're basing your expectations on (from someone else's testing), you should compare apples to apples. Your machine games at 1080p fine, and if you skimped on the motherboard/RAM it may be costing you frames, is it that big a deal? It's not fair to compare an 8700k to a 9700k, one is a 6core/12 thread and yours is a flat 8 core 8 thread. The base frequency on the 8700k is 3.7Ghz (100Mhz faster than your base). That's not the same and neither is the motherboard being used. If you were gaming at 1440p or 4K you'd see far less CPU issue and would be able to actually get more use out of that expensive video card. It's overkill to use it at 1080p unless you're doing 144Hz G-Sync.

    i7 9700k Bottleneck/Problems

    What speed and timings are you running your RAM at, did you let it stay stock and what speed is the RAM rated for? Have you checked for an outdated BIOS? Did you try removing your overclock and making sure the power setting was on maximum performance? What CPU cooler are you using.

    what should i buy

    As far as searching the PCPartPicker list you won't find anything near that cheap. The best searching that can do is this Acer for $220: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/sWdxFT/acer-kg271-cbmidpx-270-1920x1080-144hz-monitor-kg271-cbmidpx If price is tight you can drop to a 23.6" for $178 : https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vdvbt6/acer-ed242qr-abidpx-236-1920x1080-144hz-monitor-ed242qr-abidpx But if you know of a cheaper way to look at HongKong prices it's not something the majority of us will know how to shop. Perhaps seek the used/local market?

    Finding the OEM of products

    Perhaps if you had an example of a product that was more expensive than $7 it would be worth the effort to discover a cheaper version. Do you have any examples where you've found something actually much cheaper in an OEM version? Typically OEM stuff would only end up on eBay or the like, as a middleman will always have to handle it for it to end up on NewEgg or Amazon, OEM's don't typically sell direct as they deal in bulk. Consider how Intel's tray price (as explained by Anandtech in their recent article about the i5-9600KF and other video-less CPU line) is the price for buying a tray of 1,000 units, Intel won't just OEM those onto eBay, they wanna sell them 1,000 at a time to Dell and let Dell handle the warranty and end-user cost/demands.

    Gtx 1070 to rtx 2060

    Are there any games that you cannot achieve max graphics while still getting 1080p @ 75+ FPS ? Because that sounds like childsplay difficulty for a GTX 1070, that card can pull good frames at even 1440p resolution for most games. Of Course: putting aside any debating the merits of paying more to get the RTX feature.

    Gtx 1070 to rtx 2060

    Too similar in perfomance, unless the net-cost to you (after selling the 1070 and the effort you have to spend doing that) is less than 75 euro sounds like a terrible idea. If you actually wanted ray tracing and more Graphics power, your upgrade path is an RTX 2070, not a 2060. If that's outside your budget, save your money and be happy with the card you have (unless someone offers you a free GTX 1080 or 1080 Ti, haha, that'd be about it).

    Half Of My RAM Is Hardware Reserved

    It's also at least worth updating your bios to the newest one from Asus, seeing as that can affect RAM compatibility.

    Mining 1070 Equivalent Link

    That's right, and you're going to have a hard time selling your apples when you charge more than everyone else's used apples (and even some Pears and Peaches that game better than apples).

    Mining 1070 Equivalent Link

    I like how you nit-picked that out of what I said and completely ignored your unrealistic idea that your card is somehow magically better than a 1070 Ti that I can go get on eBay. Try again?

    Mining 1070 Equivalent Link

    Hahaha, oh hahaha hoohohohoho, that is RICH! You think that your 1070 is so special it's worth more than what I could get a 1070 Ti for on eBay that had less mining done on it (and w/ a warranty). I'm sorry but if you want to be defensive and proclaim "I don't need they money" that's one thing, you frame it how you want. But to claim to an educated buyer that they're wrong? Ok bud.

    Mining 1070 Equivalent Link

    Well considering I can get one on eBay for a lot less (see link for <$255 w/ shipping from MI), perhaps you should be aware your price is too high. https://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-GeForce-GTX-1070-FTW-8GB-Gaming-GPU-Graphics-Card-08G-P4-6274-RX/392197110148?hash=item5b50c4f984:g:3DAAAOSwxDJcGu95:rk:2:pf:1&amp;LH_BIN=1&amp;frcectupt=true Thanks to the ongoing miners all cashing out after the bubble burst, just under 2 months ago I scored an EVGA GTX 1070 Ti ACX 3.0 Black Gaming SC on a bid for $297 (shipped).

    Mining 1070 Equivalent Link

    If it's true that the P104 is more expensive, than perhaps forestman11 you should be aware of just how cheap the GTX 1070's on eBay get (thanks to miners buying way too many and having to offload them quickly): https://www.ebay.com/itm/GIGABYTE-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-1070-8GB-WINDFORCE-OC-GV-N1070WF2OC-8GD/153339857430?epid=2254344812&amp;hash=item23b3c48a16:g:AbcAAOSwL-1cPNCq:rk:15:pf:0&amp;LH_BIN=1 here's the full list: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&amp;_nkw=GTX 1070&amp;_sacat=0&amp;LH_BIN=1&amp;_sop=15&amp;_udlo=112&amp;rt=nc

    Steam : How to move a game to another drive

    What game? Some Steam games that didn't start out on steam don't have the easy move built into them (the properties button). With those games you may have to manually do it, or just redownload it and install to the new location.

    Intel and AMD have same life?

    Yeah I realized that could come off as a bash on the stock cooler when I meant to bash the use of cheap thermal paste and a $8 Ali Express cooler (sub-stock); so I ninja edited my post a couple minutes ago to state that I also agree the AMD Stock coolers for Ryzen are just fine.

    Intel and AMD have same life?

    The idea that it's "Twice as hot" is all hype and misinformation. Someone gets all excited because the previous gen (like AMD Bulldozer) would get hot from 8-core CPUs. At most my impression is that some of the AMD CPUs can run up to 15% hotter but in some cases you get 2 more cores than equivalent priced-Intel (or multi-threading vs Intel removing that from some products). The Key Takeaway: As long as you install a CPU Cooler that isn't garbage, you will be completely fine. (The stock AMD cooler that comes with most Ryzen CPUs is much better than their previous stock coolers, and I don't consider it garbage).
