My First Rig

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): 900-950

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Light video editing but mostly games like Skyrim and Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I am fine running at 1080p. I just came form console so as long as it is above console frame rates it is fine. 

I made this parts list:

Why do you trust that psu with high end cards

A little cheaper, faster ram, and the 2060 super is almost identical to 2070 in term of performance

you can even play with RTX on

This is the first time I've heard someone say 'RTX On' unironically. The greatest benefit of an Nvidia card right now is NVENC encoder. Ray Tracing is terribly optimized on everything and DLSS 2.0 is only supported on a small handful of games.

I'd go with this but absolutely DON'T get the Q300L, it's an awful case with veeeeery little airflow. I'd go ATX and get a mid range ATX case like a phanteks P300 mesh

 if you keep your expections in check, RTX is pretty good, keep in mind it's first gen tech so, you have to really tone down the performance expection. Overall i am really impressed with how transformative RTX is in games like minecraft, quake and Metro Exodus( especelly).

When it is supported, it brings a lot of improvements without taking too much of a hit in picture quality.

And has the added benefit of performing terribly and not being worth the tradeoff in most titles. With next-gen NVidia GPUs right around the corner that pretty much promise to make RTX viable - it's one of their primary goals - and the 5700xt being faster and cheaper currently, I just can't understand the recommendation of a 2070 non-super right now.

When it is supported. It's only well-supported and implemented on five games currently. Control, Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Death Stranding, and Metro Exodus. Sure it'll be in Cyberpunk, but that game comes out around thanksgiving, a bunch of RTX 3000 cards will be out by then. And much as I love CDPR, after that Hairworks disaster in The Witcher 3, I just don't trust them with proprietary NVidia tech performing well.
 

I don't know about games that added it after the fact. Minecraft RTX is still in Beta, and Wolfenstein Youngblood and Anthem are shitty games anyway.

 

So yeah, idgaf about DLSS 2.0 until a whole bunch of games support it, and idgaf about Ray Tracing till it doesn't quarter your performance for some pretty lights.
