Potential Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, ive currently got a 1060 3gb and an 8500 that always runs at around 4ghz (the turbo speed) for some reason but i aint moaning. I'm looking at upgrading my GPU and started looking at a 2070S. this causes a big bottleneck on the end of my CPU but would this be that much of an issue?

I don't think so. Your cpu should be able to keep up just fine

Ryzen 9 3900X overclocked to 4.3-4.4 GHz

It should be fine in most games.

If you plan on spending that much on a GPU upgrade though I'd rather suggest waiting until later this year for Ampere and RDNA2 GPUs.
