Upgrading graphics cards :O

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so I recently updated my computer, basically refreshed everything but the graphics card on it, but I'm wondering if it might be worth going ahead and upgrading it in the near future as well.
Current build includes an I5-9600k OC'd to 5 GHz, Asus, Z390-A Mobo, and a couple of other things, not sure if they really matter towards picking a graphics card out. I have the 780ti right now, and not sure what would be best price to performance wise for my PC, when I bought the 780ti the first time through I was an idiot and put it with an AMD A10 of all things, so it was heavily bottle necked. Now im wondering what graphics card could work with this system for the best price.

Edit: Pc is mainly for gaming/streaming, purely enjoyment purposes. Currently running 2 monitors at 1080p, will probably jump to three, one 4k and the other two stay 1080. Only ever game on one, other two are just for extra stuff.

well not a R(ipoff)TX of course, it's hard to tell without knowing what res you want but a 1070Ti or a 1080 should be more than enough

Yes its mainly for gaming, 1080p is what I play on right now but if I can find a deal on a decent 4k monitor then Ill end up getting one of those.. also, is it the overclock thats pointless? cpu still hits 100% a good portion of the time, I mean I game but stream some and having a bunch of stuff like discord and all that always running in the background if it matters.

RTX 2080 if possible, otherwise RTX 2060 or 1070ti or 1080 or Vega 56 or 64


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Just more extensive than it oughta be. I think they're fine though and that guy is pretty much exaggerating. 


I had a dream where Linus picked me up. It was wonderful.

After looking into the options Jurrunio gave I figured the 2060 looked good mainly for the fact that I can get it in white which fits the look of the pc and its not too high priced. unless the 2080 was a massive improvement then I wouldnt mind throwing the extra cash into it.

% wise the 2080 is around 30-35% faster than the 2060.

would you by chance know the improvement % wise the 2060 has over the 780ti?

Hard to quantify going that far back but it would be substantial. 

 

These are rough estimates. There’s some variation depending on the game or benchmark.

780ti ~ 970/980 ~ 1060 6gb < 1660 < 2060

The 2060 should be around 50% faster than the 780ti.

pretty sure at least 80% faster (want to say 100%)

The 780ti is still a really good GPU its not for nothing a TI card if you want to have double the "Power" of the 780ti a 2080 would be around there.

If you want to game on 4K you'd need at least an RTX 2080 or a GTX 1080Ti, maybe a Radeon 7.

 

But I'd recommend going a different route, getting a 1440p 144Hz monitor instead of 4K 60Hz, and then the GPU could be something like an RTX 2060, 2070, Radeon Vega 64 etc.

I think the sweet spot would be an RTX 2070.

Price/performance

 

You can get a 1080 or 1080Ti for way less than that crap and it performs like 3% worse on games which IRL is a nonexistant difference unless you worry about having 119 FPS on Heaven instead of 120.

That "ray tracing" thing is a joke. some devs managed to raytrace stuff even with AMD cards.

 

The 2060 is just a 1070 with "RT cores" so....

1440p 144Hz sounds like a good idea. I've been living on an old 60 fps monitor for awhile so I think the 144 would make for a much better experience since I mostly play first person shooter games anyways.

I feel like I'm stuck with only the rtx series because I much prefer a white open cooler graphics card and I can only find rtx series with those coolers (I know I'm picky on looks but I want this pc to look good) and I can't seem to find any 10 series outside of black or stock coolers.

Galax EXOC white and Gigabyte [something] white also exists on 10 series

May have to look on websites other than Amazon later today when I get home. 

Radeon 7 is kind-a white.
