Do i have a bottleneck?

 Share

So here is my current build:

ASRock H97 Anniversary LGA 1150 Intel H97 
intel i5-4460
mushkin 16gb ram
EVGA 500W 80Plus Power Supply Unit
msi rtx 2060

 

I mostly use it for gaming on  games like, ark, 7 days to die, overwatch,war thunder, gta 5, Arma 3 and Arma 2 modded server. Am i getting the full potential from my gpu? Honestly i dont see any problems gaming on high or ultra settings on most games, im just curious to know if i have wasted GPU.

Playing at 1080p 60fps? If so, yes. Not because of the CPU, but because the GPU is rather overkill.

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 G2 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 threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

i have this saved in a cart....im tempted but i dont know if its worth it for me lol.

Intel Core i5-9600K

Corsair A500

Gigabyte Z390 GAMING X

Team T-FORCE DARK Za 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory

 

All about $500

 

yea most games i get about 60 fps but most of them are capped at 60

 

 

Make sure to quote us so we can see your responses.

 

intel isn't worth it, if you did want a CPU upgrade a Ryzen process has much more to offer.

so i have been using part picker and on some builds i get this error at the bottom for compatibility..is that something to worry about?

 

 

Warning!Some AMD B450 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Matisse CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions.

All MSI motherboards with MAX in the name are compatible with all 3rd gen Ryzen processors. PCPartpicker doesn't know this.

Part of me wants to go with this combo deal, same cpu but the motherboard has bluetooth built in which would save me a usb port which im currently using for a bluetooth adapter for one of my xbox controllers. https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails?ItemList=Combo.3960549&Description=ryzen combos&quicklink=true

not as strong of a VRM but its certainly suitable for the Ryzen 5 CPU it comes with.

You don't really need to spend that on the cooler. I'd skip that and spend the money saved on a better graphics card like a 5700xt or 2070super.

 

Also, get a better psu.

The Corsair A500 is bad for the price, you could get the Zalman CNPS20X or Noctua NH-D15 instead. Although, as mentioned before, you're skimping on the other parts.

Made some tweaks:

I think that price is a little excessive for 16GB of ram so I added an alternative, and also a proper PSU replacementiv widget
