Gotta give em the benefit of the doubt, not everyone gets it. There was a user incredulous that a $50 budget for a CPU to go with a 2080 ti was unreasonable.

 

Bad upgrade, i3 + 2080 = awful


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, group reg is bad

I think you should upgrade the cpu first. I know i'm a hypocrite since I have a i5 4690k and rtx 2070, but at least when I upgraded the gpu, my old gpu wasn't bottlenecking(gtx 970) and saw good peformance gains.

 

The i3 in your pc however is already bottlenecking the 780 ti, so you won't see any gains. I would go to a i5 8th gen series or ryzen 5 at the least if you are planning on getting a 2080


Damn....

Maybe get yourself a Ryzen CPU like the 2600. Make a pcpartpicker list real quick.
