Ryzen or 1070ti

Chronified
 Share

Currently (happily) running a GTX 1050ti OC edition from Zotac with a FX 8350 at 4.4Ghz. No bottleneck to be seen (GPU is at 99% during gaming all the time)

I play on 3 monitors (5760x1080), main games I play are Forza Horizion 4, GTA:V, Dirt 4 and PUBG. 

Wondering how much improvement I'd see upgrading to a 1070ti and how bad it'd bottleneck, or if I should slowly save parts and upgrade to a Ryzen system before I make the jump to the 1070ti. 

 

Should I just get the 1070ti and deal with the bottleneck while I collect parts for an AM4 build? What are your thoughts?

Well if you're "happily" running your 1050 ti I would probably build the Ryzen system first and then upgrade GPUs later as there will hopefully be more and better options.

Well, and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but, I do believe that those high end FX CPU's are capable of handling up to a GTX 1070 without a huge bottleneck, if I remember correctly from Jayztwocents' video. I would probably recommend getting a 1070 or 1070 ti and dealing with the bottleneck until you can get your Ryzen system up. Most of those games you play shouldn't cause a huge bottleneck running with a 1070 and you should see a good improvement  even on an FX CPU. The fact of the matter is those FX CPU's, while old and slow, still aren't half bad for gaming they just aren't good enough to compete with the competition.
