Should I build a new system or buy a new GPU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

So I currently have a 4770k, Noctua CPU cooler, 16gb DDR3 Corsair ram, GTX 770, 128gbSSD for boot and 500W corsair PSU.

 

It is now 6 years old and i just play games and have upgraded to a 1440p 165hz monitor and want to harness all that goodness.

Is my CPU/Ram combo good atm and will it bottlneck a 2070 or 3070? Or should I build a new PC altogether. Most likely go Ryzen CPU.

Cheers

Id say you will be fine just getting a new GPU, expecially if you OC your i7. JUST CARE for your PSU, a CPU OC + 3070 might be close to the PSUs limit...

You wont get 100% out of the GPU, but you wont waste a ton of performance. It will still make a huge difference

Yeah was thinking along those lines too. But wasnt sure if the 6 year old CPU would be too limiting.

 

Thanks for the reply though!
