i currently have a ryzen 1700 and a gtx 1070. I’ve been considering getting a 3070 because I want to add ray tracing and treat myself to better graphics. My problem is I’m sure my 1700 will be a definite bottleneck right? To be clear I only really play 1080p and my monitor is 144hz. Is this going to be a horrible idea where I should get a new processor too? I’m just torn on if it would be a waste if I can’t get the performance. What are your thoughts?

An RTX 3070 is far more than you would need for 1080p 144fps. Instead, when the 3060 comes out, you might want to consider that instead.

 

If you are lacking fast ram you could spend the leftover money on that, or a new CPU.

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.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - 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 moded 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 do eventually want to get a 1440p 144, would it still be to much?

would be decent. does your CPU get 144fps in the games you currently play? or at least, a satisfactory amount of frames?
