My 1660ti will stealth neutralize your 1080ti

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

Currently gaming on an older Asus 1080p monitor.. but I got that LG 34GL750 in my sights. Been wanting a wide screen for a long time. Now it's a matter of convincing my wife I need that monitor. Got a month and a half before I get my bonus (around Black Friday time), so that's the time I'm aiming for both monitor and GPU. Hopefully they'll be some good deals for what I'm waiting for.



Man.. I hate it when your girl has to leave my place to come back to you..

well your computer is good enough for a long time. no reason to waste so much money for a little upgrade. why did you buy older generation cpu / gpu in the first place?

It began as a starter build to be able to play games at better settings.. but as I got into it, I wanted a semi decent performance build..  CPU was chosen just because I got a good deal on it.  $200 through offerup.. GPU was the same.. got a great deal off a buddy who was upgrading.. $300 bucks for the card with almost 2 years warranty still on it.  Once I had those 2 core components, everything else came together.. 

wow that's a really good price. I paid only a little bit less for only a rx 580 + ryzen 2600 last year and your system easily destoys mine. a reason more to keep it to not ruin this good deal. I would wait until after ps5 release and check its performance and how your computer can keep up with it.

Honestly think this is the wrong move.
Next year there will be machines (consoles) that releaseing were the default will be 4k 60fps, and probably be as powerfull as that PC you built.
However with console code to metal, the advantages will be there. Now with deminishing returns (in visuals) and with how many exclusives consoles get...

PC master race is a thing of the past.
Doesnt make nearly as much sense now, as it did like 10 years or more ago.

the term pc master race itself maybe. but there is nothing wrong in buying one now. I think now it's even the best time for it. during the ps3 era you would be lucky to get a pc version of a game, now a pc version is certain. every ms game releases on it, almost any non first party sony exlusive release on it, even best versions of any game from old ps1-4 era. tons of older games, many exclusive or early exclusive indie games. you could even count emulators. well and you do things besides playing games on it.

Pc gaming is great but I also got me a new gaming rig and I've hardly used it to play games. Sad fact is that there just aren't enough PC games that really take advantage of the hardware and I end up playing mostly on my ps4 pro and LG 65 inch Oled instead.

Yea.. I've been dividing my limited time between the PC and PS4.  Already got too big a backlog (many still unopened) on the PS4, heck just started "Days Gone" the other day.  One benefit that the PC does give me is playing other console games, Xbox exclusives specifically and BOTW on CEMU (yes yes, I know.. piracy is bad, etc).  Point is, it'll have it's uses and gives me alternatives just knowing I got a capable rig right now.

in your dreams, but still a good card. but they should have gone with 8gb vram.

Alright, I'm going to have to ask you knock it off with the most obvious of bait, and yes, I'm aware I'm replying to it, but I'm asking you to refrain from making ignorant posts like that, as well as using gobbledegook like "coded to the metal", as if it's comparable the the power of a supercomputer, or while we're at it, the Death Star laser. 

His PC is more than enough to do with what he wants, and so is mine. Mine is more powerful than current gen, and it will be fine for a good chunk of next gen. Whenever I choose to upgrade in the future, it'll still be as powerful as next gen systems, because that's how hw advancements work. You don't just build a console, cite it as the most powerful ever in the world vs everything else, and expect PC hw to stop advancing, as if it's consoles that get the say in how hw advances (because they bloody well don't).

And before you resort to the excuse of "b-but the price", don't, just don't, it's predictable and goal-post moving, and I'll have none of that when it's in response to me.

Also, PCMR is a meme, a literal joke, created by a British Aussie reviewer, well over a decade ago. Don't try to overwrite our current reality, in trying to cite it as a real serious thing to take in, rather than what it actually is (a joke, a meme), because that's entirely disingenuous and stupid, not to mention insulting to one's intellect and knowledge of the meme itself and it's founding.

That's a shame. I've been able to find a plethora of games that have been taking advantage of my hw, especially PC games that make proper use of my CPU and GPU.

You should try looking again sometime, or if not, sell the rig.

What if I want to run ten games at once? :P

Then you run those 10 games at once at 240FPS.

... Good point! :D



I LOVE ICELAND!

Your rig is pretty dope. Though my Ryzen 1700 is still kicking ass so I'll wait to upgrade.

Handy enough with Ryzen all using socket AM4 you could be able to get yourself an upgrade with only changing the CPU and not needing to chuck out the board/ram this time around, jump from the 1700 > 3600x if you've got a 400/500 series chipset in your mobo and yeah... you'll be right up to date with performance for 200quid

very motherboard specific if you got a cheaper older board when you bought your 1700 you'll have to look up compatibility with Zen2 cpus.

I got an ASUS PRIME X370-PRO. The board is fucking OP as all hell. Between the CPU and board, I spent just over 500 in March 2017.
