Please suggest a suitable Graphics Card

Bateman1950x

Hello friends,

 

My machine specs:

 

AMD threadripper 1950x

Gigabyte X399-AORUS-Gaming-7

Gskill 32GB 3200MHz DDR4 (8x4GB to take advantage of quad channel)

Corsair H115i  (was considering Enermax LiqTech TR4 360 but as it was not of great support and reputation, so skipped it)

Some old Nvidia card (256MB VRAM maybe?)

Samsung 500G NVMe EVO 960

Seasonic 850W focus 80 gold PSU

Fractal design R6 Case

 

This machine works great and I have been using it mainly for some CPU-intensive jobs on Linux. I plan to use to for gaming with Windows 10 OS (as dual boot). I don't have any latest monitors (have some 19" Flatron of 4-5 years old). I have LG OLED 55" Smart 4k HDR TV. Can I use this as monitor for my system? (it has 4 HDMI ports) if yes, could anyone please suggest appropriate Graphics Card (few options would be best to choose from) to fit in my Threadripper machine?

 

Thanks!!

Probably a 1080 or 1080Ti. What's your budget?

If you're ok with going Nvidia for the GPU, well basing this off your current components... the 2080ti seems most suitable, though it is overwhelmingly overpriced and only a beta card for something that doesn't entirely exist if I'm honest. 

 

1080ti is the best card to get to be safe while having one of the best out there. May I recommend these:

 

EVGA FTW3

EVGA SC2 - (if you don't have the clearance, but your case should allow the FTW3 to fit)

 

MSI Trio

ASUS Strix.

I wouldn't suggest using an OLED as a monitor because the taskbar could burn in to your shiny new TV.

 

Or just hide the taskbar and use a screensaver like a boss xD

 

 

As far as graphics cards go, a 1080, 1080Ti or 2070/2080 will more than suffice for 4K gaming.

Those have been dying lately, not sure if you've heard.

I've heard, I was basing it off of the current components he owns, which are screaming for some power. 

The cards will be RMA'd, but I can see how that would be such a bummer and a hassle. 

 

That's why I also suggested the 1080ti, it's my preferred option.

Thanks everyone with your expertly & swift suggestions.

 

I'm thinking of £500 as budget for this. It seems I might get 1080 but NOT 1080ti with my limited budget. What are the main differences between 1080 vs 1080ti?

 

Best,

Best,

As per usual, the 1080ti out performs the 1080 by a large margin. It's on par with the new 2080 base model, and even out performs it in some aspects. I would spend the extra few dollars to grab a TI.

Thanks DVA.

 

IF I buy 1080ti, do I need to improve my case cooling? OR would the fans come with Graphics card suffice??

Also, which make is the best for 1080ti? Asus / gigabyte/Evga?  It seems Gigabyte are the cheapest?

 

As mentioned in my initial post, I'm using Corsair H115i for CPU cooling and 3 140mm case fans.

I'd venture to say that the Asus  STRIX cards are the best (from my experience). They do tend to be more expensive, but run higher clocks and have better out-of-the-box thermals. 

 

Your CPU cooling and case fans will be sufficient, so long as the case fans can provide cool air for the GPU (and you have sufficient exhaust, though I'd assume that your CPU rad is the exhaust).
