so 3060ti has launched, and luckily i live somewhere where we have an adequate amount of stock, the only problem is, my current setup, as of right now, im rocking a 7700k boosted to 4.5ghz, a single 16gb corsair vengeance stick, Maximus IX hero motherboard, a gtx 1060 strix, which i bought like 3 years ago which still fucking destroys every game i run (100fps, and yes even warzone), a vs 650 powersupply(which i can upgrade if necessary but if not, its aight) and a 1920x1080p 60hz monitor. can you guys find flaws or holes in my system, and one of the comments on my other post in reddit is that, i could upgrade my ram to 32gb, and i was hoping you guys could help me upgrade my rig, my allowance is like 800$

only if you feel like 16gb isnt enough

it should be enough for every game right now

i wouldnt invest in DDR4 anymore, when DDR5 is on the horizon already

unless you need it, or your next cpu upgrade is DDR4

pretty much cpu and monitor upgrade

but if it's still adequate, why upgrade lol

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

i really just want the new cool stuff with the rtx 3000 series, and while i can still get 100fps in many games i dont want it dropping below 60, and with the incoming cyberpunk, im getting quite worried, even though they release the recommended system specs, i still dont trust those LOL,  and my system is getting quite old, cpu wise, i think i could bump it up if i get a better cooler

u can decide to upgrade then if it's no good

the performnce is equivalent to s ryzen 3 3300x in many games, so it's considered low end in today's standard

but very adequate still

 

again, u can upgrade when you feel like it's not enough, instead of speculating it's not enough :P

When you do upgrade, make sure to buy 2 sticks of ram for dual channel!

after the release of cyberpunk maybe, according to moonzy, which is actually a really great advice, so i could adjust if there anyroom for adjustment, for example, my cpu is is heating up, i could buy a better cooler, and if my 1060 is eating cyberpunk for breakfast, then i think im good

"1440p curved, 75hz or maybe better if i could find one (i turn on vsync if i have more than 80fps in game)"

 

Erm... ok... I'm just going to assume you're buying from amazon.

 

https://www.amazon.com/GNV32DB-G-Sync-Ready-FreeSync-Warranty-Zero-Tolerance/dp/B087R21CL2/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=144hz+1440+gsync&qid=1606964678&sr=8-3

 

good warranty, g sync, 144 hz, 1440p, all the things you can want. you can underclock the monitor for whatever fps you get.

This is what G-Sync and FreeSync are for.

I don't even think you can underclock a monitor.

 

You can overclock one, but I don't think you can underclock one right after it comes out of the box.

It's likely coming out next year when AMD release their new chips

Though it's not confirmed, but it's pretty implied that that's the case
