  1. My current build is as follows: i7-4790K @ 4.7GHz CPU Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB DDR3 RAM ASRock Z97 Extreme6 Mobo NZXT Kraken X61 AIO Cooler RX 5700 XT Nitro+ Special Edition GPU EVGA SuperNova G2 1000W PSU 850 EVO 500GB SSD 2TB HDD BenQ XL2420T 1080P 24 Inch Monitor I recently upgraded the GPU from a GTX 980 Ti, and I've managed to get a stable driver for the 5700 XT (touch wood) and it's running great. I can max out Monster Hunter World with the high res texture pack at a solid 60FPS, I assume most other games will be the same at 1080P. My decision now is whether I want a better monitor, a 27 inch 1440P IPS, or do I want a new 'base build' of Ryzen 7 3700X, X570 Motherboard, 16GB DDR4 Ram and a new case. I'd be carrying over my current GPU and storage. The monitors I'm looking at are the LG 27GL850-B and the Aorus FI27Q, which are both around the same price in the UK (about £470). But for an extra £200 I can just build a new base system and upgrade my monitor down the line. My main worries are not being able to max out games at a solid 60 FPS when I move up to 27 inch 1440P, so I do I just game on my current, old, reliable 1080P with a new system knowing I can just swap out the monitors in six months and be good to go? Or do I upgrade the monitor and maybe not see the performance I was hoping for on the new monitor then want to upgrade the PC? Bare in mind, I can only afford one of these upgrades at the moment, the other would come five to six months later. Just looking for some advice and help on the issue really, let me know! Thank you.
  2. I'm looking to upgrade my monitor, as I've been using my BenQ XL2420T for the past eight years now, though I'm still going to keep this around as a second display (as I can't afford to buy two new monitors). I'm trying to decide between the Gigabyte Aorus FI27Q or the LG UltraGear 27GL850-B. They both have excellent reviews from what I have read and seem to be neck and neck really. My main use for the monitor is going to be gaming, of course, but I'll also be using it to watch a lot of TV shows and films (when my partner takes over the TV in the living room) and some office work (just coding/programming). My current PC specs are an i7-4790K (4.7GHz OC), GTX 980 Ti (though I'm going to upgrade this soon, most likely to a 2070 Super or 5700 XT) and 16GB DDR3 Ram. Can I get some advice on which monitor I should go for please?
  3. Hi there, I've got a budget of around £350 (give or take) for a new GPU. I'm looking at the Radeon 5700 XT Anniversary Edition which I can pick up for £320, but am open to recommendations. I'd love a 2070 Super but I don't really think I can stretch the extra £100 or so to pick one up, plus the 5700 XT AE seems to score rather high on lists of the current-best GPU's, not far from the top of those lists. I've heard about the situation with AMD drivers being a nightmare at the moment though, how likely am I to run into issues? Also, will any part of my current setup cause a bottleneck for the new GPU, as I realise it's getting on a bit now (even if it was top of the range when I first built it back in 2015). My current spec is as follows: Intel i7-4790K CPU (Though I’ve never overclocked this) ASRock Z97 Extreme6 Mobo NZXT Kraken X61 CPU Cooler Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB DDR3 Memory EVGA GTX 980 Ti GPU Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD EVGA SuperNova G2 1000W PSU NZXT H440 Case BenQ XL2420T Monitor (I'm looking to upgrade this to a 1440 IPS display soon as well, preferably 27 inch) Thank you for your help.
  4. I'm not too fussed about 4K, though I do want a new monitor as my current one is getting a bit long in the tooth these days and has some glitching of pixels and such. I'm looking at a 27" 1440p IPS panel if that helps?
  5. Hello all, I built my PC back in June 2015 when everything was brand new and pretty much top of the range. I fell out of the loop with PC gaming for a few years and so I've not made any changes in that time, but I'm looking to get back into the fray with PC gaming this year. So I'm just wanting to know if it's worth keeping my current build and upgrading anything to give it a boost and get it to last me another year or two before needing a new build from the ground up (as I can't really afford that at the moment). My spec is as follows: Intel i7-4790K CPU (Though I’ve never overclocked this) ASRock Z97 Extreme6 Mobo NZXT Kraken X61 CPU Cooler Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB DDR3 Memory EVGA GTX 980 Ti GPU Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD EVGA SuperNova G2 1000W PSU NZXT H440 Case BenQ XL2420T Monitor What are your thoughts? Any advice, help and recommendations are welcome. Thank you for your help.
