Is it worth fixing old pc or keep using the new one

 Share

I have 2 pc's one is old and the other one is newer 

The old one has gtx 1080 and i7 6700k

The newer one has ryzen 9 5900x and rtx 2080 super.

The question

My old pc doesnt work and needs to be fixed it needs a new psu and $200 to fix the gpu, so is it worth nowadays to use the old pc and fix it

Or just use the newer pc ?

Cpu: Ryzen 9 5900X, Mobo: Asus rog strix x570 gaming F, Gpu: Asus rog strix Rtx 2080 super, Ram: 4x8 32GB cl16 3600 Corsair vengence rgb pro

Cooler: Asus rog strix Lc 360 Rgb, Psu: Evga super nova 1000watt, Monitor: Asus rog swift pg279q

Use the newer pc. A good quality psu is not that expensive but $200 to fix a 1080? It's only worth if you want to sell it while it's still expensive in the current market. If gpu prices were normal, a gtx 1080 would only cost $200.

Use a non hdmi port cause i think hdmi encoder can just randomly die, if that doeent work then take the card apart and spray/dunk the thing with some 99% IPA which should clean it and let it dry for min 4 hours, if that doesnt work then at this point id just dunk the thing in a water bucket then let it dry for a week to really make sure nothing is dirty though only as a last ditch effort when everything youve tried hasnt worked and there arent any other solutions

Why would you fix the older pc if you have a much better newer one ? Id just use the new one
