Which GPU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey,

 

My friend has the Gigabyte B450M DS3H AMD Ryzen Micro-ATX DDR4 Motherboard, paired with the 2600 and GT 710, but they'd like to start gaming and are considering a 5600 XT, would the mobo be a bottleneck?

 

Kind regards,

Eong

PCie gen 4 has shown to be relevant in only one circumstance for gaming:

When an RX 5500 XT with only 4GB of vram runs out of memory, and needs to use the x8 bus to communicate with the system memory

 

aside from that, any old GPU on any old motherboard is quite alrighht.


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 - Hyper 212 Black (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)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Would the 520W Seasonic M1211-520 before enough to power the card?

Technically yes 

The wattage is more than enough 

The PSU is subpart 

So if you already don't have it 

Get a cx450 or a 550 

If you already do , it'll do the job but I would advise to upgrade later.

Also quote people so they can see your reply 


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

They've already been using the PC for like 2 years, just deciding to upgrade the GPU.

As I said 

It is enough. But do plan a PSU upgrade down the line.
