My friend is thinking about an upgrade, but doesn’t know if his CPU can handle it.

My friend is considering a GPU upgrade.

 

i recommended the 1050 ti 4GB (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500410&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=) because it has high core and boost clocks.

 

He believes he has the FX-8320 or FX-8350 and he knows he has 8GB of RAM.

 

He asked me if it could run Insurgency: Sandstorm on maximum settings at 1080p.

Definitely not max settings, but definitely at 1080p. I'd target 1080p Medium/High settings.

 

Clock speed isn't everything, neither component is really that powerful. Going by the minimum requirements(which I'm assuming are targeting 1080p), your friend could most likely manage 1080p Medium, but definitely not 1080p Max settings.

My wife's system has the FX8350 paired with an AMD RX 480 and has a very very small bottleneck. So a 1050ti should give no bottle necks.  As for the game I'm not familiar with it. So I'm unsure how it would handle it.

I was actually going to ask if an RX 570 was worth a look since they are similarly priced and I think, it’s a lot better than a 1050ti.

The RX 570 is a step below a 1060 but above a 1050ti. Just make sure his PSU can handle the RX 570 first.

You know what that would need to be, his PSU wattage recommendation?

There's more than wattage. A quality PSU is recommended too, but a 570 will run off a 450w PSU no issue

 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Well it’s been running for years on the 750ti and FX-8350.

 

My friend had another one of our friends build it, I expect he got him a good PSU, probably 80+ bronze.

Old power supplies are not recommended to continue using, unless it was a super high end unit (which the efficiency does not tell you) then if it's over 5 years old you should consider replacing it soon

um wut? that doesnt sound right....i know a lot of people with 8350's running 380's (i m one)) 480's  580's and one with a 1070 .....none have bottlenecks...now some not being able to max settings yes but bottlenecks no

8350 bottlenecks anything above 1060/580, unless heavily overclocked.

Regarding that PSU part – mostly everyone who knows a thing or two about PSUs, as far as I am aware

above those huh..hmmm interesting on my part....im upgrading my gpu soon...guess it will give me an excuse to upgrade to ryzon sooner :)
i know about psu's..but i think its more of when we build our new systems we just automatically buy a new psu just because...yea it still solid and such but for the ones that have funds issues there isnt really a need as long as it was solid and can power the new system fine. hell a lot of the older psu's are better built then some of the ones we have now. :P
