Budget?

Country?

What Games or Programs?

I might be experienced, but I'm human and I do make mistakes. Expand for common PC building advice, a short bio and a list of my components and other tech. I edit my messages after sending them alot, please refresh before posting your reply. Please try to be clear and specific, you'll get a better answer. Please remember to mark solutions once you have the information you need.

 

Common build advice: 1) Buy the cheapest (well reviewed) motherboard that has the features you need. Paying more typically only gets you features you won’t use. 2) only get as much RAM as you need, getting more won’t (typically) make your PC faster. 3) While I recommend getting an NVMe drive, you don’t need to splurge for an expensive drive with DRam cache, DRamless drives are fine for gamers. 4) paying for looks is fine, just don’t break the bank. 5) Tower coolers are usually good enough, unless you go top tier Intel or plan on OCing. 6) OCing is a dead meme, you probably shouldn’t bother. 7) "Bottlenecks" rarely matter and "Future-proofing" is a myth. 8) AIOs don't noticably improve performance past 240mm.

I'm a PhD student working in the fields of reinforcement learning and traffic control. PCs are one of my hobbies and I've built many PCs and performed upgrades on a few laptops (for myself, friends and family). My personal computers include 3 windows (10/11) machines and a TrueNAS server (and I'm looking to move to dual booting Linux Mint on my main machine in future). While I believe I have an decent amount of experience in spec’ing, building and troubleshooting computers, keep in mind I'm not an expert or a professional and I make mistakes.

 

Favourite Games of all time: World of Tanks, Runescape, Subnautica, Metroid (Fusion and Dread), Spyro: Year of the Dragon (Original and Reignited Trilogy), Crash Bash, Mario Kart Wii

thanx for the answers,games and animation,mostly games,playing at 1440p resolution and i dont have specific games,triple a,competitive,fps,pretty much everything!i dont really use RTX but i always preffered nvidia(shadowplay,their control panel,really into it),country is Greece,i was thinking of rtx 4070 but i believer my 3900x will be a bottleneck!

I have absolutely no idea why you prefer NVidia control panel over AMDs software 😋

 

Though if you are animating id say NVidia might be the better option, though will still need a budget, thats the main deciding factor

3900X isn't a huge bottleneck with 4070 at 1440p.

Though 7800X3D would be better of course.

I know the benchmarks in the video are done with 4080. With 4070 the 3900X should have even lower impact on fps.

I edit my posts more often than not

Whatever you do, do not go for the 4060Ti. The 8gb vram WILL NOT CUT IT especially when u are spending so much money. Do mention your budget. Just a small tip, I used to be an nvidia fanboy myself till I discovered the red side.

I know but if I upgrade my cpu too(need at least 12 cores) then I need to upgrade my mobo too and so on,it's a forced gpu upgrade,I was happy with my 2080 super 😒

4060 ti didn't impress me,nor it's bandwidth,only gpu from Nvidia that caught my attention was the 4070 super but I don't know about a bottlenecking issue,else it's red side

I could be completely wrong here, but here is my advice. If you have the money, there is no point getting a lower powered gpu just because of a bottleneck. Even if you get a 4070 super and the cpu bottlenecks it you still get the maximum fps the cpu has to offer. When you later on upgrade your cpu, you will still have this beast. now this is ONLY if you have money to burn.

If you are on a budget I really recommend trying an AMD card. Their adrenaline software is very capable.

Sorry to reiterate, but how much are you looking to spend on a new card?

I see the equivalent of the 4070 is the 7800xt,in my country the one is 592 and the second 540,though I'm losing dlss and frame generation

the 7800xt offers FSR2 and when supported FSR3 which is near on par with DLSS, on top of this AFMF can add to this further, and they offer Upscaling through super resolution. Its 90% or higher the effectiveness of DLSS, and has better rasterisation which will make up for the loss from DLSS, so both cards should be roughly on par or the 7800xt will provide higher FPS, if you are not using ray tracing

thnx,I noticed the x2 fan 4070 super is 40 euros more than the x3 fan 4070,wouldn't the bottleneck be bigger though?

The bottleneck is redundant, it'll be the same performance for cheaper regardless, its just another fan

 

If you mean about the 7800xt, again, does it matter about a bigger bottleneck if its cheaper anyway?
