Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hello people. I'm new here and this is my first post on ltt, please forgive me if I don't know what I'm doing. 

 

so basically I want to upgrade my rig.

idk why but my pc struggles when I play the new cod mw on it. I have an rx 5700 xt and  i9 9900k cpu, it shouldn't be struggling right? so I thought maybe it's my motherboard that is holding my computer down? 

I have the ASRock B365 Phantom Gaming 4 LGA 1151 (300 Series) motherboard ( it support till DDR4 2666 ram ). I have two sticks of 8gb DDR4 3600. idk if ram speed will make any deference but I will do anything to have a good gaming experience. 

I'm planning on upgrading my motherboard and my case by next month. 

I will appreciate any tip that's gets my way. please give any advice about my build. 

 

my rig...

cpu = i9 9900k 

gpu = GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5700 XT
memory = G.SKILL Sniper X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600
storage = Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB 7200 RPM / and Seagate BarraCuda 2.5" 500GB SATA III 
motherboard = ASRock B365 Phantom Gaming 4 LGA 1151 (300 Series)
case = Cooler Master MasterBox K500 ARGB ATX Mid Tower
cpu cooler = be quiet! 250W TDP Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU Cooler
psu = i forgot... properly a coolermastert 750 psu
monitor = 1920 x 1080, 60Hz Samsung monitor / and Huion Kamvas Pro 16 Drawing Monitor
keyboard = Cooler Master CK530 Tenkeyless 
mouse = cooler master mm710


* I never used my computer more than 8 hours. I reach the 4 hour mark a lot though. 
* I play cod mw, overwatch and a couple of other games. I also watch anime on this pc. 
* my build is mostly for gaming and sometimes I watch anime on it. 
* I have 6 fans in my case + 2 on the cpu cooler. 
* the psu is like 5 years old. it's the first thing i upgraded since my old psu died. 
* I'm planning to upgrade the motherboard to GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS ELITE LGA 1151 (300 Series) / and the case to a Cooler Master MasterCase H500

 

thank you for reading. English is not my first language so I'm very sorry for any mistakes. :)

a high Hz monitor is nice to have

you can stay at 1080, or move to 1440p 144Hz

more than enough if it's just case fans, 3 is already enough in most cases hah

Hi there,

 

When you say your system is struggling, what do you mean? At 1080p, the 5700 xt should not be struggling in any sense of the word. Sure, a 2080Ti will perform better, but at that resolution you should be getting more than 60 fps (in fact, more than 120 fps).

 

Does your performance deviate significantly from this chart? (Obviously, your fps won't be constant but it should stay close to the average reported here.)

I should be writing papers...

run DDU and reinstall the latest GPU drivers from AMD's website
