Upgrade path

Budget (including currency): USD don't really have one

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: mainly gaming and light office work.

Other details wondering what my best upgrade path would be from a 1080ti. It's starting to show signs of age and down clocking. I just upgraded my cpu and mob due to a failed mob. So I'm not planning to get ryzen 7000 series. My monitor is 1440p 144hz soo my aim is to stay at 2k or maybe jump to 4k. With a good 3-5 years before another upgrade besides the impulse buy ugrade.

Mob MSI meg 

CPU 5900x

Ram 32gb 3600mhz 

Storage 500gb NVME WD black boot 1 TB team group NVME

Psu 750 Thermalake

Unless you want to upgrade your PSU as well, you could shoot for a 3070/6700xt. That would give you nice 1440p performance. If you go 3080 or higher, a better and higher wattage PSU is going to be a must.

 

Edit: what is the exact model of your PSU?

I'm not sure if that puts it in C or E tier in the PSU Tier List, but I'm fairly certain that my original recommendation still stands. I wouldn't use that for a 3080 or higher.

Definitely upgrade the PSU, and then you can get a RTX 3080 easily. I wouldn't trust that Thermaltake psu, with a 3080, one bit.
