    RTX Ultra with DLSS off and Extra Details off actually does the trick. I guess I can try it for a bit.

    jerubedo got a reaction from BTGbullseye in How relevant is AMD 16GB VRAM for 4h gaming?   
    There's a few considerations here:
     
    1) Games right now are using 4-6GB in 4k, but that's largely because consoles only have about 6GB of VRAM available to them in games (the other 2 is for the system and its various processes since VRAM is shared on both PS4 and Xbox One). Devs will absolutely eat up any and all resources given to them. PS5 and Series X will both have 16GB of VRAM. Believe me when I say we will see games using close to that! It likely won't be in any kind of optimized fashion, but that bring me to number 2:
     
    2) Poorly optimized games. Some games will use more than 6GB of VRAM simply from being poorly optimized. Those games being "just poorly optimized examples and not representative"  doesn't hold as an argument because, well, if they're games you want to play then that's what you're stuck with, unless the devs fix optimizations, which I would not count on.
     
    3) Textures are constantly improving. 8K is just starting to gain some traction (nowhere near mainstream of course). That's not to say that these cards are even capable of doing 8K gaming, but using 8K textures at 4K (effectively texture down-sampling) still yields a nice uplift in quality, and that will eat up VRAM.

    Hey jerubedo,
     
    I have been thinking a lot about Intel as for right now, as I built a second machine recently I thought a lot about the i7 9700K and i9 9900K facing the current Zen 2 and trying to find somewhere balanced and monetarily wise enough to those who want to go team blue but retaining value.
     
    I came to the conclusion that neither the i7 9700K nor i9 9900K represents this value I was seeking but actually the locked i9 9900.
     
    Here is the situation, we all know the i5 9600K is no longer viable because it has been maxing out on the CPU demanding titles and the imminent launch of new consoles generations by the end of 2020 turning gaming 8 cores optimized the i5 has no life in it and in this case the R5 3600 is a better pick every time.
     
    But what about the i7 9700K? we seen it has been nearly maxing out as well, take games like AC Odyssey which is fairly representative of future AAA are showing it:
     
    While the i7 9700K manages to drive the 2080 Ti today that 94% utilization average in there is worrisome, throw some multi-tasking on the mix or the upcoming games being able to further utilize 8 cores soon and by next year the 2080 Ti will be a 3080 and we'll have a new top end GPU around which is likely to actually be bottlenecked by the 9700K.
     
    All of this shows the better purchase today for longevity is a 8c/16t making the R7 3700X a better choice.
     
    But we don't want AMD, we want Intel and that last bit of higher gaming performance thanks to Ring Bus, what to do while still making a value purchase? That's where the locked i9 9900 comes in:
     
    The CPU itself is cheaper, usually more than 50 dollars cheaper, the processor will work on any Z chipset motherboard so you can cheap up on it getting the most inexpensive Z370/Z390 you can find and still BCLK the chip,  cooling? I can tell you a beQuiet! Shadow Rock Slim sufficed for me so no need for 100 dollars Plus AiO's.
     
    The idea you MUST overclock is really dead nowadays even then I was able through BCLK to get the i9 9900 clocked at a locked 4.75ghz all cores which is enough and then we get more Cache and the Hyper-Threading for that far bigger breath of life... I mean on the example above the 9900K shows exactly 50% usage instead of 94%, that means a whole lot more room for multi-tasking and "future-proofing" for tomorrow's 8 cores optimized games.
     
    So the situation here is that for the same price if not cheaper you may be getting a better performance per dollar and counter AMD more effectively as legit alternative route to Zen 2.
     
    What do you think? wanna give it a more in depth look and reconsider Intel recommendations?

    For both builds, the eSports ONE cooler is better than the Hyper 212 Black, and it performs pretty darn close to the Noctua D15 in terms of cooling performance. The 5700 XT in both builds will perform better than the 2070, and the 660p is a great value 1TB M.2 SSD. The SPEC-DELTA tower provides decent enough cooling with RGB. The G2 550w is more than enough and it's a great PSU quality-wise. I kept in as many RGB components as I could per your request, including the RAM.

    32GB of ram, imo 3200MHz is not worth the $$ yet, you can easily OC the 3000Mhz kit to 3200MHz.
    a 1TB HDD is NOT enough for Game Library + other storage and backups. My game library is already over 1TB, and i have like 20% of my games installed.

    There's nothing to be confused about, no worries. The D15 is one of the best. It will out-perform almost all the AIO coolers, period. There's plenty of reviews showing it getting lower temps vs the H80, H100, H100i, H110i, etc. The only AIO that can beat it in terms of raw performance and quietness would be the H150i (since it's a 360mm heatsink), and even then it's only by a little. So, fret not!

    The 9700K is still the king chip for gaming (tied with the 9900K), the 5700 XT is on par with or better than the 2070 super depending on the title tested for a lot less, and I've made some savings oriented cuts on other parts as well without sacrificing quality or specs.

    If you can make use of the 12 cores here is a 3900X option. The 9900K is still faster purely for gaming, but at 1440p/165Hz it isn't that much of a gap as it is at 1080p/144Hz. If gaming is the priority then the 3700X saves a bit of cash. You could stil chuck a 12c/16c in later on.

    If you won't be doing any productivity work like rendering or 3D modeling, etc., then the 9900K is still the king for gaming. It might be worth waiting for the 2080 super, as it supposedly will perform pretty close to a 2080 Ti for $700, plus it has ray tracing dedicated hardware, but if you didn't want to wait until the end of the month, the 5700 XT is also a compelling value right now. Although, your budget actually does allow for the 2080 Ti, which is slated to remain the best, so what I'll do is add that in and have you decide on what GPU path to take:
