what to pair with 2070 for 3440x1440

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Just upgraded from a 21.5" 1080p 60hz panel to a 34" 1440p 120hz, and now I gotta drive it.  Im upgrading my gpu, cpu, and possibly ram.  With a 2070, what do you guys think should be paired with it.  I'm sure I could probably get away with a 2600 or 2600x, but should I go with the 2700 instead?  (2700x is 80$ more and theres a decent chance they will overclock similarly)  Also right now I have 16gb of 3200mhz ram, should I buy another 16g kit or just wing it.

you can find some really nice deals on a 1600, get a high end board and upgrade to zen 2 down the line?

2600X will probably be fine, although it may be a good idea to wait for the new ryzen CPUs, assuming your old CPU still works.

Might go with the 2600x and another 16gb of ram...

1400 from a prebuilt I mutilated

I would continue using that until the new ryzen cpus come out. It may bottleneck a bit but I don't think it will be too bad. Unless you really don't want to wait, in which case either try to find a deal on a 1600 to last until ryzen 3000 or go for a 2600x/2700x.

Its 40fps on low in 1440, or 90 in 720 ultrawide. With a rx 580** dont have the 2070 yet.  The cpu is at about 60%.

Ah ok, that's surprising. In that case you could try to find a cheap 1600x if you are planning to get ryzen 3000.

Do you want a ryzen 3000 chip in the future? Or are you fine sticking with ryzen 2000?

If you don't want to have to upgrade your motherboard then ryzen 2000 is your only option. A 2600x will be fine.It may need a bios update.

 

If you want to switch to intel isn't now a good time?

It would be a few hundred more to do that so this will do for now.

thats cool if you want to buy ryzen buy a high end b450 or x470 board and a $80 1600  and sit back and wait for 3*** series to come its going to end up like the AM3+ motherboards with wattage ratings for the top cpus is my prediction for early motherboards.
