What Do I Need for 240Hz

I want to play with a 240hz monitor but I heard I need a good CPU and RAM and I wasn't sure if mine was good enough. I have an AMD Ryzen 7 3700x and 16GB of RAM. I'm not sure what GPU can do 240fps well so please let me know which GPU I should get. I mostly play COD, CS:GO, Siege and GTA. Is there anything else I need to play 240hz? And what GPU should I get?

Your CPU is nearly best-in-class, totally fine for 240Hz.

240Hz is hard to drive. for GTA if you want to get super-high FPS you'll basically need a GTX 2080 Super or something.

or wait a few months for 3000 series GPUs from Nvidia

Another important note is that your RAM speed really matters. If it's under 3200Mhz either overclock to 3200+ (Ideally 3600) or get faster RAM.

A 5700XT (or even a 14Gbps VBIOS 5600XT) should do, though I wouldn't get my hopes up if you're hoping to get 240FPS in Modern Warfare and GTA 5. CS:GO and Siege though are very doable.

You'll want 3600MHz memory running in dual-channel to make sure you're getting the most out of your CPU. 

Also, Ampere and RDNA2 should be coming in late Q3 or early Q4, so it might be worth waiting for those (unless you don't have a working computer atm).

Pretty much a 2080 super at the least. 240hz is something that is pretty much just for light esports title right now so I'd advice you to just get a 1440p 144hz monitor or 1080 p 144hz one as that can be achieved in almost any game starting with a rtx 2070 or rx5700.

 

However nvidia is soon launching their rtx3000 series so a big gpu investment now is a bit of a waste of money.

I have 3600MHz, will 16GB be enough?

I have a G Sync monitor so I want to buy a Nvidia

September. If you want to game right now get a used gtx 1060 or rx580 or something older that's still pretty good and will easily play those games like a r9 290(x), gtx 970,...

Then I'd say a 2060S or better, if you want to buy now.

G-SYNC or G-SYNC Compatible? G-SYNC Compatible works with AMD cards too just FYI.

Sometime between July and November is the best guess. It's not right around the corner, but it's not too far off either.
