  1. Then make him give you a slice for being such a great friend and giving him such amazing advice.
  2. Doesn't really matter. They perform more or less the same these days, which is to say neither run triple A games from the last 2 years outside of turning everything down to the lowest and seeing what you get. That said 7770 does consume a good amount less power, so if it's an OEM machine he's upgrading that may be worth looking into. If it's a new PC don't get either and just run integrated graphics. Integrated graphics on the 2nd and 3rd gen Ryzen cpus probably perform around that level anyways in modern games just because of the outdated or optimized drivers from both the 7770 and 560. Spend the $30 on a pizza or something.
  3. If it were me I'd just go 2060. No sense getting a 3.5 year old card that'll lose proper driver support in the next couple years when you can get a one year old card that performs just as well for only 8% more money. I don't know seems like a no brainer to me.
  4. Depends on whether or not you're running 4k. If you're running 4k you should probably be fine (at least for a while). If you're running 1440p 144/120hz or 1080p 144/120hz (if you're not running one of those idk why you got a 2080 super) then yeah you're really gonna wanna upgrade that CPU. It's not going to be putting out 100+fps these days. $500 including shipping and taxes wouldn't be that much of an upgrade over your 4790k tbh. You're probably looking at something like a 3600x and a low end X series motherboard and 16gb of ~3000mhz ram. Yeah it wouldn't bottleneck a 2080 where your 4790k might a bit, but really I think when you replace your CPU RAM MOBO core, you should expect to at least get one GPU upgrade out of it. I'd save a bit more to get a 3700x and a bit faster ram if it were me, and make sure you have enough slots to upgrade the RAM later.
  5. 750ti in VR will run like a dog who just has 3 of hit legs removed and not replaced with wheels. Don't do it. My 780ti, which is like 3x as fast as a 750ti, really struggled in vr. 750ti would be a nightmare You also can't use SLI with VR. Games don't support it.
  6. Do whatever you want but dude, they won't run well. Again, do whatever you want, but even my old 780ti struggled to run some games and 780ti is over twice as fast as 750ti. I'm sure some games will launch, but it will feel extroardinarily bad. edit: Oh yeah and VR doesn't do SLI.... IIRC 750ti doesn't do SLI anyways though.
  7. No way of knowing requirements. That said, if I had to guess, if you try to play with RTX on with your 1080ti then yeah you're gonna be getting 1080p 30fps. But you should probably be okay for 1440p 60hz, although probably not 144hz at reasonable detail settings.
  8. Pretty sure there aren't any 6 cores with HT on Z270 boards, but I may be wrong. But your average AAA title in 2019 absolutely uses more than 4 cores. I mean you can see that the 8700k is faster than the 7700k at the same clockspeeds because the additional cores help.
  9. For 4k 60hz I'd grab a used 7700k and a 2080 or 2080ti. For 1080p 144hz max settings, you'd need to scrap most of your build because no CPU on that socket can handle 144fps these days. You would need something like a 3700x or 9700k for 144fps and a motherboard to match. Then go get a 2080ti. If you go intel, also get a Noctua NH D15 while you're at it.
  10. Yeah, but in this case it's true. 1070ti to 2060 super makes no sense. It's like MAYBE 10% faster.
  11. Borderlands 3 definitely, and it should play Cyberpunk as well, just at low or medium if you're amazing for 60fps.
  12. I have a 1080 and honestly nothing on the market from a price:performance standpoint has me even remotely interested in upgrading. Sure, 2080 is a lot faster, like 30-40% faster. It also costs a lot of money. I'll personally be interested in upgrading when I can get double the performance for the same $700 CAD I payed for my 1080.
  13. Dude if you're having problems just RMA it. Also the card just came out, how is it possible that it runs out of the 17th?
  14. 2080 is about 5% faster, has a bit less VRAM, has support for RTX and is a bit newer so it'll probably age better. That said I'd probably take a 5700xt over either at this point. 2080 is like 60% more expensive and is like... maybe 10% faster. Not worth it imo unless you really like to play games with RTX.
  15. SLI is old and sucks balls. That said no single card can do 4k 144hz comfortably. I'd still take a 2080ti over 2 2080's though. I mean truthfully needless to say 4k 144hz will take all the graphics power you can throw at it, so the sky's the limit. If you want 2 2080ti's, they'll be utilized about as well as they possibly can be.
