Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys. 

I know that in the past the 970 , 980, and 980 ti were count as the best combo for this GPU.

Now with the new Line of GPU, what you think is the best combination for the i7 4790k?

 

 

 


CPU - i7 4790k, Motherboard - Asus Hero VII, Memory  - HyperX Beast 1600mhz 16GB ,

GPU GTX 1070 MSI Gaming-X 8GB,  Case - Corsair 760T black,

Storage - Samsung 850 EVO 250 + 500 GB  + WD blue 1TB,

PSU - Corsair HX750i, Display - Samsung 24 inch 1080p,  Cooling - Noctua HN15D, 

Keyboard - Razer Stalker, Mouse - Logitech G502, Operating System - Win 7 Pro

A 1080 ti I guess? According to userbenchmark, it's not that much weaker than a 7700k.

As always though, that would depend on which games you play. You might get CPU bottlenecked if you play CPU-intensive games such as the Total War series at high refresh rates and low resolutions.

GTX 1070/1080/1080ti.

Overclocked i7 4770k/4790k has no problem to keep up with even 1080ti at high refresh rates.

any GPU-heavy games are still a stroll in the park for my 4790k, and CPU-heavy games are gonna neck cpu side anyways no matter what you buy.

 

just get whatever suits your budget and/or needs best. 1070 is plenty for 1080p honestly, if you're going for 1440p or higher, there's the higher card options for you.

I would say a 1070 TI or a 1080.  

 

I always say build your PC around what monitor you are gonna use.

 

It really depends on what monitor you have?  What monitor are you gonna be using?

 

You need a GPU that can push the monitor resolution and refresh rate you have.

 

I have a 3440x1440p @ 100hz and a 4790k at 5ghz with a gtx 1080 pushed most games in that resolution at max settings close to 100hz.  But in a lot of multiplayer games like bf1 wow and stuff like that the 4790k was holding me back.  Even in games like ACO my 4790k at 5ghz was hitting 90-100% load causing stutters.
