  1. The IRacing simulator does support multi GPU. So in that case will the 2 cards be able to handle it and a respectable frame rate? Would a single 2080TI be better? ...or a single Titan?
  2. IRacing sofware and yes, supports multi GPU. Might also try Asetto Corsa
  3. Hello all! My buddy is building what will hopefully be an awesome racing simulator. Neither of us have any experience with dual GPU setups and tipple monitors so we are looking for some tips and advice how to connect and optimize everything. The system is an Alienware Aurora that we slapped a second GPU inside, connected with NVlink and upgraded the RAM: Intel i9 9700k, Corsair Vengeance 64GB DDR4 2666MHZ, 2 x NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER 8GB GDDR6, 850W PSU The Monitors: 3x ASUS ROG Strix XG438Q 43" 3840 x 2160 4K Resolution 4ms 120Hz 3xHDMI DisplayPort FreeSync Flicker Free HDR 600 Remote Control Built-in Speakers Backlit LED Gaming Monitor https://www.newegg.ca/black-asus-rog-strix-xg438q-90lm04u0-b011b0-43/p/N82E16824236989?Description=asus gaming monitor&cm_re=asus_gaming_monitor-_-24-236-989-_-Product&fbclid=IwAR1NGpVNXauLiUjPI2FrERcy3Rd-6uYpw-iIJo3Bri3OaFD8wI6VE6k91Xs What is the best way to connect these to the monitors? HDMI or Display port? Do the GPU now act as one? What slots should be used; top GPU, bottom GPU or both? Anything we should know that we haven't thought about? Monitors arrived today ( god bless UPS). The build begins now. (We will check thermals once its up and running)
  4. I had the same issues when I first got my 5700xt. I upgraded from Nvidia GTX970 and had the same problems you did. I did 2 things at the same time and of them worked: In setting / power settings, I changed to high performance mode and I did a DDU wipe and clean install of the latest drivers. Since then I've had no black screen crashes. I was also wishing I just got 2070 super but now I'm happy. Hope you figure it out. PS. Radeon Image Sharpening caused me some grainy texture issues. Had to lower or turn off entirely to get a good image.
  5. I don't know if you can get the RGB Wraith prism cooler separately... if so that would look pretty sick. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition CPU Cooler, looks pretty good for the money IMO.
  6. I also vote 2060. I just upgraded to a 5700 XT and yes, it was buggy. Took a lot of setting adjustments to fix and I've just got it smoothed out now, so I'm happy with it. For a while there however I was wishing I stuck with Nvidia.
  7. I have a Ryzen 5 2600 as well. It's not a hot chip so all I use is the Wraith cooler that came with it. So... why do you need a new one? And whatever the reason is, just know you don't need a super beefy one.
  8. Prebuilds can be just fine but you'll get more satisfaction and understanding of computers by building it yourself. Start by watching some Youtube vids. That should get the fire burning then start asking more specific questions. Once you understand what everything does, then you can look at what are the best components for your needs and your budget. Choose a budget, make a list of parts you think you want, then post them here for some feedback, then bulid the MF'er. It's easier than you think. This will be fun
  9. True. Just ditch that cooler cause you don't need it (and it looks bad in the case IMO). I have a R5 and the included Wraith cooler is just fine. Its not a hot chip. With that saved $ and maybe going from R5 3600x to 3600... you might find the budget for a RTX2060? If not that then the 1660 TI or Super? That series might even be the same price as the 1070. Oh... and where is the RGB???
  10. I like it. Good choices, except do you know there is a cooler included with the Rysen 5. You shouldn't need more than unless you are planning to overclock. So you could cut out the Noctua NH-D15 and go for a more current graphics card. Any reason to choose the 1070 GTX over and RTX? Just budget reasons I imagine? Still a great card for the price. I just got a Meshify C case and I love it. Small minimalist design, plenty of space with none wasted, tempered glass window, good ventilation on all sides. Looks similar to the P400A.
  11. I had crashes with black screens. I had to change windows to high power mode to fix that. The textures looked bad at first. I was upgrading from Nvidia GTX 970 (I cleared with DDU) and it was noticeably worse. I was disappointed. Took a while to find the problem and on the advice of someone on this forum, I turned off Radeon image sharpening and that fixed it. Apparently I'm not the only one who had that problem. You are right, it's not that cards fault, its the software. Makes me wonder what else I should tweek that I dont know about. I'm happy with it now but my experience was not optimal plug and play.
  12. I have the same CPU and I just got a 5700 XT. After some tweaking... I finally got it working to a point I'm comfortable with. I was using an older Nvidia card before and during the problems I was having with the AMD I thought... I wish I just went for the 2070 Super. So looks like you've made a good choice. Much easier to plug and play I think. As for the CPU, its fine... for a little boost I think later on you can just get a 3rd gen Rysen 5 3600 on sale and not break the bank because you wont have to change motherboard or RAM. That's my plan anyway. As for the difference you will see. Although the system may be performing better... I think a monitor upgrade will make the most difference. Depending on the game, just switching the card is not much different if using the same 1080 monitor. If you boost the resolution to 1440 or 4k, I hear that makes the CPU load a little lighter and GPU load higher which is what you would want in your rig. The thing you actually look at (the monitor) makes a big difference.
  13. I had a problem with my 5700 XT but it was a RAM issue. You said you re-seated the RAM but I had to do it several times until it posted. If you've tried all configurations then its probably not that. I did get black screens with the new card but I changed the windows setting to High Power mode and its not happened since. I don't know if that's your problem tho. Good luck
  14. I agree with the above. I can't see why you would need both. You for sure will need a new power supply and I can't see the benefit. Two different cards will not link together well if at all because the have 2 different systems for linking (no NVlink on the 1060) you will be limited by the RAM of the smaller card... probably some other things I can't think of and it just sounds like it would make your system unstable. If you are not going to link them, then why would you use the 1060 for something that the 2070 Super can do just fine? Unless its for a separate system. Do your engineering things on one system and while your work is rendering... go game on the other?
  15. On your advice I just tried that one... I think you nailed it. I had it enabled which you would think would make look better. Off fixes the grain but the image is not great. About 30 - 40 % seems to be the sweet spot. Off looks much better in rocket league, but not great in Dota2. I'm gonna keep playing with this and see. Thanks man!
