Gtx 1060 3gb with i5 2400?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is it worth it to upgrade from gtx 1050ti 4gb to an 1060 3gb ? My cpu is i5 2400... would i experience bottleneck? Also i got an cooler master masterwatt 450w psu is it good enough? And my mobo is Intel Corporation DP67BG and i have 16gb of ram what do tou guys think? Also im playing on 1080p

 

also one day i might upgrade to i7 2600

No, I wouldn't recommend doing that. The GPU will bottleneck really badly due to the CPU. https://pc-builds.com/calculator/Core_i5-2400/GeForce_GTX_1060/0cN0Velu/16/

Also, depending on which model of the GPU u would like to buy, they use up to 80-90W when playing in 1080p.

Your power PSU would probably be enough, but you would be near the limits

Better off saving for a complete system redo, in a year or so.  

 

What's your income or savings ramping up to be in a year?

Is worthy upgrade but look for GTX 1060 6GB specially if plan to get i7 2600, GTX 1060 give almost twice of performance of GTX 1050TI, will not be big bottleneck https://www.gpucheck.com/gpu/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1060/intel-core-i5-2400-3-10ghz/

and when get i7 2600 will be even better .

Depend on what price plan get this GTX 1060 otherwise good variant is GTX 1650 Super also. I think that is best choice because newer cards are more optimized for today gaming

If your supply manage those watts is ok NVIDIA recommend 400W and GTX 1650 Super recommend 350W no bother but more GB ram is better at least can push texture more 3Gb is not very good choice unless is much more cheap, I was have GTX 1060 3Gb is good videocard but cant push textures always

Vram isn't going to increase power consumption much. What will is the gpu itself. The more powerfull a card in the linesup (in this case the 1000 series) the more power it draws. Regardless a i5 2400 and 1050ti is as far as I would go. It's best to just start saving for a new system instead of trying to upgrade this one. The 1060 is about 35% more powerfull and that's true but the i5 will hold it back and this will mean that most of the time you won't see any better performance than you had with the 1050ti

Thats true but soon ill get i7 2600... i just dont know what to do man... just got a new 1080p monitor and i could use some more fps now... thats why i was thinking 1060 3gb instead of 1050ti

Not gonna see more performance......., do you think GTX 1060 is some kind of monster and are you aware of GTX 1050Ti how bad performs, I guarantee at least 20 fps more in most games, simple example:

I hope you can get the 2600 for a good price (under 50$). It's already 9 years old and not that great anymore. Still good enough for a lot of games tho. The 3gb version of the 1060 is one you just should not get as that 3gb vram fills up quick. Look into some older cards maybe or something like an rx480/rx580. Also I would get the 550w version of the masterwatt series as that opens up a lot of possibilities in the future.

I could get 2600 for 50-70$

I'm not sure what you mean but what I meant is that the i5 is going to hold back the 1060. I know that the 1060 is a good bit better than a 1050ti/ Like I said around the 35% mark.

That's something that happens if you don't uninstall your drivers or if they aren't cleanly uninstalled. Which is why I always recommend DDU when you do it.

Will hold it back but not much is 15% bottleneck and he said will buy i7 2600 which much better. Even with all bottleneck he will get much better fps I am sure like I said at least 20fps more overall in most demanding games

That's a decent price. Just letting you know that a ryzen 2600+motherboard+16gb of ram comes around the 250$ mark and would be the better investment. Used you can get an even better deal. But if you want you can get the i7 2600

Will get the i7 2600 first then and after that i will see what can i do with my psu and what would be the best upgrade for gtx 1050ti with my motherboard... so the same thing doesnt happen as it did with rx 570

Just better GTX 1060 6GB, because 3GB is not enough in 2020 and 6GB version is better value, either way with 3GB will get much more fps then GTX 1050TI just cant push much textures which is important. There some games like Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 Remake, Mortal Kombat 11, Tomb Raiders which require plenty of ram even 6Gb not enough if push to max texture?

I play dmc5 on all hogh settings with my pc 1050ti i5 2400 1080p and i have around 70fps ^^ but yeah i read that a 1060 6gb needs a 450w platinum atleast :/
