Want to upgrade my GPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I finally got around to upgrading my PC from a  AMD 8320 to a Ryzen 7 2600x and want to upgrade my GPU to better accommodate the new hardware. Right now I have a   AMD RX 480X 8gb

 Whats a good upgrade from that to my new ryzen build that's not ridiculous expensive, (I plan to sell the 480x to help)

What do you have to spend? What are you trying to run?

Get the best card you can afford if gaming performance is the priority. given what we know what you're spending, that would be the titan RTX

 

assuming your PSU can run it


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 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Like 150-200. As for specific games, no real specific but just want to upgrade my old card so my cpu is better complimented

150-200 on top of the price of your current gpu?

 

If so, you would be looking at a used card to get something worthwhile. Something like a 980Ti or 1070- but that won't be a huge upgrade or anything

Cards around that price would be about 10-15% faster than your current GPU. I don't think that's worth it, your GPU is fine for your CPU if you're just worried about it not being complimentary enough.


Intel Core i5-8400 / ASRock Z370 Pro 4 / Hyper 212 Evo / 16GB DDR4 @3000 / MSI RTX 2070 Armor / Corsair RM550x / SanDisk 250GB / 1TB WD HDD / Fractal Design Define R4
