Should I upgrade my computer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Honestly I been debating this with myself for quite a while. I have  AI ntel(R) Core(TM) i5-6600K CPU @ 3.50GHz running at 4.3 I have Installed RAM) 32.0 GB running at xmp 2400. I have a GTX 1080 original not any upgrades.  My monitor is a 2k monitor from dell that only goes up to 60khz. There isn't a game it really can't touch. Unless I upgrade my monitor to a 120 or 240 hz display I just been struggling with the fact it feels like my system is struggling at cpu stuff lately. My Gigabyte motherboard is bluescreening on startup sometimes. Hit reset it works fine. I used to be able to afford any upgrade I wanted had a good job. But now I can't I am living paycheck to paycheck really. Should I upgrade to a new AMD?

60 Hz is not so great for gaming. While 1440p is decent, you should look to improve the refresh rate with a GPU and overclockable CPU like that. From your description of the system it sounds like performance isn't a problem.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions
