i7-7700k w/ 2060 Super?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I posted a topic earlier this morning asking which 2060 was the best value and narrowed my decision down to the Founders Edition, but came across the 2060 Super. I see on their site store that there is a $100 difference between the two, although it seems to be a decent upgrade from the FE to the S. I have an i7-7700k base clocked as of right now(weak cooler) and 16 GB of DDR4 3000mhz ram. I plan to primarily play on 1080p. Main questions; is the 7700k going to bottleneck the 2060 Super or the 2060 FE? Is the $100 price difference justified? What do you recommend going with? Thanks!

the best value right now is the 2060 KO

Yes, probably. But it isn't necessarily a bad thing considering the 2060S can push most games at 100FPS. If you want, you can squeeze out a dozen or two more frames by going easy on anti-aliasing. AA is one of the biggest GPU resource hog; and you can easily minimize the GPU bottleneck by disabling it altogether.

 

Less load on GPU per frame = more frames per second = more strain on CPU = less bottleneck. 

 

AA @ 1080p is pretty much worthless in most cases and I, for one, tend to disable it completely. But then again, my eyesight isn't as good as it used to be!

Escape from tarkov, Insurgency Sandstorm, DiRT Rally, and other various tripple a games with getting the upgrade. Main game being tarkov though.

These games aren't that CPU heavy, 2060S should be fine. Invest in a good cooler that also works with AM4 if it does bottleneck.

Note that the KO is a really cheaply made 2060 so don't expect anything good from cooling or overclocking.
