From a Gtx 760 to a Rtx 2070...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Just upgraded my gpu yesterday I went from a Zotac Gtx 760 2gb blower card to an Asus ROG Strix Rtx 2070 OC.

 

Now I'm sure this has been asked before but are the white LED lights near the PCI power connectors on the gpu supposed to remain on all the time even when the system is turned off?  

 

I would also like to know if there are any specific warning signs of a bad card to look for aside from crashes or artifacts, as I'm a slight bit nervous with all the people online boycotting RTX cards for being "defective". 

 

Lastly I've been stuck on a 760 for quite some time, so now that I have a bit more power any game recommendations you can provide that would be a good showcase for the upgrade I've made would be great. I've been on low settings for so long I stopped really following anything that had high end graphics as my specs were to low for most things. So my current library has more older less demanding titles, I game 1080p and have a 144hz monitor and will try pretty much anything.

Yes, that white light is normal on Asus cards. Even when the system is off, the PSU is still live and supplying voltage to the motherboard and GPU.


Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, Fractal, GSkill (RAM only)

Yes. Tells you there's a voltage on the detecting pin, even with PSUs that cut off the 12V rail when the system shuts down

Nope, none. That's why it's so upsetting, they just go from good to kaput in a second without visual damage

I've only ever run Asus GPUs, the lights are normal. They will stay on as long as the system has power, even when it is shutdown; the only way to turn them off is to unplug from power or flip the PSU switch. (For reference, I have these Asus GPUs: 960 Turbo, 970 Turbo, 1070 Strix, 2080 Strix)

 

Also, as an FYI, those lights will turn red if the card does not have PCIe power cables plugged in while the system is plugged in and has power. Handy feature for people who tend to forget to plug in some cables.

Thank you for the detailed responce I appreciate it greatly.  I'll have to download a couple of those games totally forgot how demanding the new AC games were I'll have to see how they run. Also have to see how farcry 5 runs now that I can turn it up past low.

FC5 is quite well optimized, should have no problems at all

I assume not but I had everything turned down as my 760 was a blower card and hit 80° instantly so I was running lower specs then most 760s would run

Does between 70 and 100 fps sound a bit low for FC5 1080p on ultra +hd textures?  I'm only hitting between 60%-80% cpu useage so I don't think I'm bottlenecking the card there. I was honestly expecting 100+ fps not sure if I was just expecting to much or if I'm not getting the full potential due to some user error.... 

 

I mean I didn't DDU my old drivers, and I'm running the last windows 10 before the most recent build, I also have a few more background applications then I'd like but I don't think that would impact performance to drastically I think I'm using maybe 3gb ram in idle which seems normal for windows 10.
