Upgrading Current Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, 

 

I have a decent build at the moment but recently I feel like I need to upgrade the GPU. I will post a picture of my current build and also list it. I have a set up with 970 SLI and I know the whole issue with SLI but I got the second card dirt cheap. Here is what I plan on upgrading soon (within 1 month or 2) with no order in what I am getting first. 

 

1. Storage = Will be getting an M.2 1TB (on-top of the current 256GB ssd I also have a 1TB hdd for pics, music, etc)

2. RAM = Another set of 16GB (even though its overkill but I saw that borderlands 3 max req is 16gb) 

3. GPU = Want to upgrade to a 2070 Super instead of going for the 2080 ti. (feel like anything above the 1000 series would be a major upgrade)

 

Would you recommend anything else for my build? Maybe I'm picking the wrong parts for what I currently have? Should I wait to upgrade my GPU? I do not know if there are any new GPU's coming out soon? 

 

PC BUILD LIST:

 

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700k 4 GHz Quad-Core Processor

Motherboard: Asus Z170-DELUXE ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

Memory: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (2x8) DDR4-3200 Memory

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4 GB SSC ACX 2.0+ Video Card SLI

Monitor: Dell AW3118DW 34.1" 3440x1440 120 Hz Monitor (Ultrawide)

 

Thanks for your help!

Everything looks great to me, I'm not aware of any significant gpu launches for a while in the performance range you'd be looking for. The 5700 XT or 2070 Super would be a worthwhile jump. I would highly recommend overclocking the 6700k as it's easily capable of getting up into the 7700k range and faster.

 

I'd also recommend either of these drives right now for the NVMe, they're both pretty much the same aside from aesthetics and firmware.

@Slayer3032 Thanks! I just recently got the ultrawide monitor and the 970 handles it ok. Ahh i have never delved into the realm of overclocking but I know my motherboard has 5-way optimization and it "overclock its" to 15%. Would you happen to know of a guide that can show me? Or would a quick search on google lead me to a reliable guide? 

 

Thanks for the recommended drives! I really like the Gammix, the aesthetic of looks awesome.
