  1. I would suggest getting at least a 650-700W PSU, but yeah it can be the same brand.
  2. The new cards aren't game changing faster.. but it will probably make the 2060S cheaper.. and if a rtx 3000 fits the budget.. win win!
  3. Here is something you can try, if you haven't already, quoted from a reddit thread in reply to someone having a similar issue: "I had to go into radeon drivers>Gaming tab>global settings>global wattman and set a custom fan profile there to alleviate temp throttling on mine." An aggressive one apparently.. again, if you haven't already tried it, sounds like you know what you're doing.
  4. Either disable the iGPU in your bios if you have the option, or set PCI/PEG graphics to the primary.
  5. I haven't played with an AMD card in years.. is there a setting in the control panel for power optimization like for Nvidia cards ? Ie; prefer maximum performance maybe.. You shouldn't have a bottleneck I wouldn't think..
  6. What PSU do you have ? Seems the 5700 XT is more power hungry than the 1070 ti.
  7. Have you compared the performance with anything else other than Destiny 2 ? I played it for a quite a while and it didn't seem particularly optimized to me.
  8. Did you uninstall the Nvidia drivers and run a driver cleaner like DDU before installing the AMD drivers ?
  9. I would stick to process of elimination and do the PSU first myself.
  10. I like where this is going, awesome job so far!
  11. I would go with a little cheaper motherboard, non rgb ram at least 3200mhz, a Ryzen 5 3600 and an RTX 2070 super myself..
  12. Ok, the delay ticks is the usually the headstack assembly of the platters in the drive or the actuator motor going out.. both aren't good.. if there's anything important on that drive, I'd suggest trying to back it up..
  13. A monitor that can produce 100% of the full srgb spectrum is going to give you the most "true to life" image quality as far as colors go. Monitors with considerably less coverage of the srgb spectrum will show fewer colors, but ones that are tuned properly can produce an image that the average person more often than not can't distinguish from the monitor that covers 100% of srgb spectrum. Contrast also plays a big role.. So, it's really what looks the best to you. With the refresh and resolution that you want.
