What's a worthy upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Last Christmas I built a new computer but decided to reuse my old graphics card and upgrade down the line.  So the current specs are

Ryzen 7 3800X

32G DDR4 memory

AMD RX 480 Graphics card 4gb

TUF Motherboard

750 Watt PSW 

 

 

I did some research and found if I bought a second rx 480 and crossfired them in most games and editing software I would get almost the performance of a 1080 ti. Since this would cost only $100 used I thought it might be a better option that dishing out 380-500 bucks on a 5700 XT or 2070 super. 

 

I know the disadvantages of heat and power consumption could be a problem but is there anything else I should take into consideration? 

 

I'm trying to save money and the best options look like

 

Second rx 480 for $80-100

 

5700 XT for $380 plus tax

 

2070 super for around $500

 

I currently play at 1080p 144hz the following games

 

Overwatch    high settings 

League of legends.    max settings 

Call of duty Warzone.   Medium settings 

Rocket League.     Max settings 

 

Side VR games with the OG Vive 

Superhot vr

Beat saber

VR poker

 

I also video edit with Premiere Pro at 4k 60fps

 

 

Let me know your suggestions!! Thank you

Most games don't have good dual-GPU support anymore, that technology is a thing of the past. 

Wait for the new GPUs, the RX 480 is fine till then. 


ALIENWARE 13R3

i7-7700HQ | GTX 1060 | 16GB DDR4 | 512GB NVMe SSD | 1440p OLED display | Logitech MX Master KZ ZSA

I'd personally wait to see what Nvidia does with the RTX 3xxx series before doing any upgrades. If you reeeeeeaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllyyyyyy can't wait though, the 2070 super is going to carry you for quite a while at 1080p 144hz.


Be patient.

Just because a new product has come out, it doesn't mean that your thing is suddenly performing worse than it was when you bought it.
