So last year I upgraded the home/work computer with image.thumb.png.a01481721b7b8570e771c129940808d3.png

also ordered another pair of tridentz 16Gb ddr4 5dram. So thought I would ask you folks what you think about this video card i am looking at image.thumb.png.86959e7020ea620b379c59b2aebf53db.png

I would highly suggest not going with the 2080ti even if you can afford it I have the normal 2070 and I am doing just fine running everything at 1440p ultra settings. If you are using a 4k 144hz monitor then yea a 2080ti might be necessary but if you are not using that then I would suggest going for the 2070 super or 2080 super.

What gpu are you running now Wildthing?  And what hard drive are you using?  If you don't have a M.2NVMe I would get the RTX 2070super and add a HP EX950 M.2 2280 2TB PCle Gen3 x4 to use as your boot drive.  I'm running the 2700x and HP's 1TB version and it's damm fast... but I still can't out run Sally as she knifes me all the time.

Sweet @wildthing How does it run?

 

I JUST ordered a Ryzen 7 3700x and a MSI X470 gaming pro max motherboard and 2x 8gb G.SKILL Trident Z Neo RGB DDR4 3600.

Can't afford a new video card yet so I'll have to get that and a PCIe M.2 SSD and the AM4 mounting plate for my Corsair H105 cooler. I'll have to use the AMD Wraith Prism Cooler that comes with the CPU for a bit. I've heard they are pretty good for a stock cooler.   

 

Memory $105

CPU $288 on Sale

Motherboard $135 on Sale

Artic silver 5 $12

 

My power supply is decent yet so I will be reusing it. Corsair HX650w Pro Series. My 2 256g ssds are also fairly new. My MSI RX480 4g video card is a OK for now. It plays everything that I play including GTA5 and gets pretty decent FPS.  I'll upgrade the case down the road. The Corsair carbide 500r that I have is still a decent case.

What, did you get a raise or something? 
Nice setup.

 

Na I've been busting my ass and putting as much as I can all spring. Figured I better get the stuff before the prices get jacked up even more than they are. The decent mid tier grade 3rd gen ryzen compatable motherboards are quickly going out of stock. The one that I got sold out about 2 hours after I ordered it.  

 

@wildthing with a 2080ti OMG lol  Ya he robbed a bank or something. Good thing you didn't get anything faster than 3200. The B450 boards will run faster memory but they can be a bit unstable.
