Advice on Nvidia Product

Lord of Blackwood

Hello guys,

 

A long time ATI user, I am now migrating my systems to Nvidia following the renewal of my hardware.

 

I have :

CPU: Ryzen 7 2700X

RAM 2 x G.SKILL Aegis Mémoire RAM D4 2133 C15 16 Go

MB: ASRock AB350 Pro4.

SYS/Primary PRG : Kingston SSD A1000 (SA1000M8/240G) - 240GB Disque Flash SSD, M.2 2280, PCIe NVMe

Secondary PRG/Local Data Western Digital Green 240GB M.2 240Go M.2 Série ATA III

Graphics adapter RX580 >> TO BE REPLACED

Displays :

Make Size Scale Width Height Connection
DELL 24" 16/10 1920 1200 DVI
DELL 24" 16/10 1920 1200 HDMI
LG 34" 21/9 2560 1080 Display Port
LG 34" 21/9 3840 1600 Display Port

It functions pretty well like that with a Graphic card temp at around 60° celcius most of the time which is not too bad with the hardware I have on it.

 

Mass Storage is held on an aging Synology DS1812+  and a Synology DS1813+ that serve for hosting the files of the VM running on my ESXi and HyperV servers, my VM archive and project archives for a total of 12TB, as well as my  iso's, audio collection and ebook library for 1-2TB.

 

Network Services (DNS, DHCP, LDAP) are handled by a DS212+

My extranet is handled by a DS212 that host my media jukebox, COPDS servers, and picture backup solution (from my phone to the DS212 where it is encrypted, then from the DS212 to a cloud where it remains)

 

I mainly do server administration on my virtual machines (for my lab), tech documentation, audio acquisition and editing (converting old LP's to flac and mp3) and some video viewing (mostly youtube and local HD movies).

 

I migrated all my gaming on a second computer an older Core I7   with 16Gb RAM and a GTX 1050 TI OC with 4GB Ram. Even there, I do not do much gaming as I mostly do World of Tank and Warships, OpenTTD, Starcraft I & II (rarely as have been disappointed with it).

 

The question is :

What Grphics card should I get from Nvidia to replace the RX580 to plug in my 4 screens. Do I need 2 cards ? If so which ones knowing that cost is more an isssue than frame rate as I no longer game on those screens.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

André

RX580 8GB is a bit better overall than GTX 1060 6GB so if you want for your upgrade to make sense then definitely dont get anything lower than GTX 1070.

But GTX 1070 from RX 580 is not a big jump in performance so it doesent really make much sense either so GTX 1070ti or GTX 1080 or RTX 2070 would make more sense.

Any of these will drive all 4 of the monitors as long as you pick the one with all the necessary video outputs if you dont want to use adapters.

a gtx 1060 6gb has enough ports to drive it. but if you want more power, you can get something like the gtx 1080. 

Rig 1: i7-9700k OC'd to 5.0ghz all core | EVGA XC RTX 2080Ti | ADATA DDR4 2400mhz 4x8gb | ASUS PRIME Z370-P | Asetek 550LC 120mm | ADATA 480GB SSD & Toshiba P300 3TB | Cooler Master Masterbox MB500 | Win 10 Home | Logitech G910 Orion Spectrum, G502 Proteus Spectrum, G933 Artemis Spectrum Snow Wireless Limited Edition, Corsair MM300 Mouse Pad | 2 MSI Optix Curved 27" FHD Monitors 

 

(before i sold the WD drive and MSI gpu - https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/11946219 171 gaming. felt good.)

 

Rig 2: i7-7700k Stock clocks | MSI Armor GTX 1070 | ADATA DDR4 2400mhz 2x8GB | MSI Z270 A-Pro | WD Green 240GB SSD & 2TB Seagate HDD | Thermaltake Core G21 Tempered Glass Edition | Win 10 Home | 2 HP Omen FHD 144hz 24.5" Monitors 

 

Rig 3: i7-6700 | GT 730 & GT 645 OEM | Some random DDR4 2133mhz 2x8gb sticks | OEM Dell Mobo | WD Black 2TB HDD & Toshiba 1TB HDD | Win 10 Home | 3 27" Dell FHD Monitors 

 

Rig 4: i7-4770 | EVGA SSC 1050ti | Some random DDR3 ram 2x2gb and 2x4gb sticks | OEM Dell Mobo | Stock Cooler | 1TB WD Black HDD | Win 7 Home 

 

RIP 

 

Rig 5 (dead and dismantled and sold) : i7-7820X OC'd to 4.8ghz all core | MSI DUKE 1080ti | ADATA DDR4 2400mhz 4x8gb | Gigabyte X299 UD4 PRO | Asetek 240mm AIO | WD Green 240gb SSD | Other various components that I can't remember

 

Rig 6 (same fate as rig 5) i7-8700k stock clocks | MSI DUKE 1080ti | ADATA DDR4 2400mhz 2x8gb | MSI Z370 A-Pro | Asetek 550LC 120mm | WD Green 240GB SSD & Toshiba 2TB HDD | Other various components that I can't Remember

Truth is the 1050ti could handle all of those monitors the problem is it doesn't have enough connections. If you are looking for the cheapest nvidia option.. then as far as new cards go it would be a 1060 3gb card. If you are looking to go used then it could be an older card like a 770,780,970,980. You can even go lower than those, but the prices are cheap enough that they are the better choices. Now this is all assuming you aren't looking to game on it at all. If you do plan to game then I would go with a 970,980,980ti if used or a new 1060 6gb.

So basically, I could stay on the  RX580 and save my money to replace my aging NAS to secure my storage, if I read you correctly ?

I mean honestly the card you have now is more than capable of handling this setup. It might be running a little warm, but that could just mean it needs to be dusted.
