  1. Are cpu settings relatively similar between the two systems, such as hyperthreading? Does the system with i9-9700k have gsync and or gsync turned on? What's the cpu usage while gaming?
  2. So I tested Anthem on full screen at high setting 1440p and the fps hovers at between 31 fps to 40 fps.
  3. I'm not really into the current ray tracing craze atm but thought I could wait since it's rumored that big Navi will also do ray tracing, and current RTX cards are just really first gen tech demo so maybe I should wait till it's more matured in the new architecture. And yeah nvidia is just high way robbing right now.
  4. My custom built PC specs below: Asus ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming Motherboard Intel Core i9-9900K Corsair Hydro H100i RGB Platinum AIO CPU Cooler Corsair Vengeance Pro 64 GB (16GB x 4) DDR4 3200 MHz CL16 Corsair RM1000x 1000 Watt PSU Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Razer - Basilisk Wired Optical Gaming Mouse with Chroma Lighting Samsung EVO 860 256GB SSD (boot drive) Crucial P1 500 GB M.2 SSD (game drive) EVGA Geforce Titax X 12GB Maxwell Graphics Card Acer Curved 34-inch UltraWide QHD (3440 x 1440) Freesync 75Hz Display ------------------------------------------------------------ Overall I think I built a very well decked out gaming system excepted for the repurposed old Maxwell Titan X and 75Hz Display. I'm contemplating upgrading to new, not used, GPU and was kinda leaning towards AMD RX 5700 XT to put my Freesync display to good use, but I've always been on the green team before because I've watched videos and read on forums that AMD has serious issues when it comes to the stability of their drivers. I want to game on high to ultra settings on 1440p minimum 60 fps, but higher fps is always welcome. Not gonna get a 144 Hz display since I don't play competitively, and I'm used to my ultra-wide IPS display. I can still play on 1080p on AAA games at high settings, but I can feel the age of this Titan X is passing by. So long story short I want to upgrade but I don't know if right now is a good time to buy a new GPU. I mean I heard new Ampere and Big Navi RDNA2 will be announced soon, roughly March? I don't wanna buy now and come summer in 4 months new graphics card will be out on the shelf and I'll regret buying older gen since I was gonna upgrade anyway. And I doubt even more that this current gen of GPUs will get any significant price drop for me to not having buyer remorse. I'm even contemplating buying and returning a new GPU every month until the gen comes out, but it's kinda a dick move. So what's you guys' opinion? Should I buy now or chug along for a few more months?
