Idea to upgrade my graphics

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello Guys,


Currently I'm working in Bangalore. Sort of playing games usually after my working hours. So I'm going to upgrade my graphics card from GT 740 4gb to RTX Super 2060 or Super 2070.

My PC Config:

Intel i5-8400 

Motherboard - Asus Prime H310m-e R2.0


Antec 650 W 80+Gold smps

Monitor - 27" VA Panel 144 Hz and 1 ms

SSD - 500 GB 


My doubt is that when i upgrade to RTX Super 2070 whether I can utilise full performance from graphics card or it will be moderate based on the processor i have? or Else getting RTX super 2060 will be efficiently to utilize full performance for gaming. For upgrading do I need consider any other major constrains for RTX Super 2070 graphics card.  Actually i was manipulated by some retailers that i will only getting moderate performance for RTX super 2070 along side with my intel i5-8400. So guys please help me with this. Need your support.

Depends on pricing. 2060 super matches if not beats the 2070, while 2070 Super is only somewhere between 2070 and 2080.
