Thank you! Will it be enough to run triple a titles at high frame rates for example cod and gta

google and youtube. people run gaming benchmarks on specific hardware all over the internet.

 

a few tips which should stand valid today:

 

1. the newly released ryzen 3300x is really good value for money. benchmarks show its gaming performance is on par with 3600

 

1a. within reason, don't sacrifice a better graphics card for a better cpu. for gaming, graphics card is most often the bottleneck. again, my four core cpu from 6 yrs ago, together with a 780ti, lasted me 6 yrs.

 

2. for gaming, 2.5 inch sata ssd won't perform any worse than pcie m.2 ssd.

 

3. Do you REALLY need two monitors?

 

4. do consider amd graphics card. rx 5700xt is really good value. plus, freesync monitors are much much more firendly priced.

 

5. a rx 5700 with efficient cooling can be flashed with 5700xt bios and get a very meaningful performance boost. (ignore this if you don't know what i'm talking about)

 

6. if you are not a professional gamer, don't waste money on "premium" gaming mouse and keyboard. they may not even make marginal differences.

 

7. you should value more the fps your graphics card can pump out than the monitor refresh rate, if not down the track you may regret it when your got a 240hz monitor but only 50fps.

 

8. RGB hardwarw is for vanity.

 

9. the same graphics card from a better brand can cost significantly more but may not provide any better fps at all.

 

9. Get a decent case, a reliable (not necessarily better spec'ed) harddrive and a GOOD power supply. Years down the track if anything don't have to be changed it would be these.

Thank you I appreciate it. The rgb lights and 2 monitors are mostly just personal preference for me and the m+k. The monitor I found with my parts benchmarked should be just a little above the FPS so hopefully I won’t have to upgrade it for a while. I think I’m going to go with https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3sJmP6/nvidia-geforce-rtx-2070-super-8-gb-video-card-900-1g180-2515-000

this graphics card hopefully I can use it for 2-3 years without needing an upgrade to badly.

no worries. suggestions are food for thought. you don't have to follow them.

Would you say the rx is better than the one I have? I also don’t know what advantages nvidea has over others

The AMD gpu's are usually cheaper. 

 

You can get a Gigabyte RX 5700XT for less than the price of that EVGA 2060 Super assuming you are buying from US stores. The 5700XT is faster than the 2060S in most games, and isn't that far off a 2070S.

Thanks man I appreciate it! Final question this is my updated parts list and if I go with my 2070 super or the card you suggested regardless are the parts compatible and will they fit in my case? Also I’m a Man U fan unfortunately 😂

You would be fine with a 650W psu like the Cooler Master MWE Gold for $99. The Gigabyte RX 5700XT would save you $90 but if you prefer Nvidia then that is fine.

 

Everything will fit in that case.

 

Man U fan myself, although I find myself watching the NFL (Steelers fan) more than football these days.

Yea we got the best corner in the draft and greenbay struggled but looks like they got a good replacement when Aaron Rodgers retires
