Missing GPU

I built myself a pc to game but its more or less budget and i still need a gpu.


CPU: Ryzen 7 2700X

RAM: 16GB 2933Mhz DDR4


so i was looking up a bottleneck calculator and it tells me to get a gpu from the list below because my gpu is bottlenecking by 100%

GPU suggestions:


  1. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
  2. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080
  5. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 TI
  6. NVIDIA Quadro P6000

What should i go for to get 100% out of my cpu ?

would the 1080 TI be enough or do i need a 2080 TI or even one of the others ?

The 1080 Ti can handle the 2700X fairly well. If you have the budget and aren't worried about price to performance the 2080 Ti would be the best you can get for "gaming" at the moment.

If you're already on the top of the budget, then just keep the 1050ti (or RX 570, if that's in a similar price). Bottleneck of some sort is inevitable, and having a good CPU first so you can focus on GPU upgrade in the future is a good idea for those with budget constraints.

better to have a GPU bottleneck than a CPU bottleneck from what i know, upgrade when you have spare cash

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 


#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.


Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
