Computer Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It's about time as my old setup was around 10 years old but I now have a new setup and thought I would share. I don't like flashy colours so there is little point showing a picture of the case/contents (all lights are off and it is as plain as they come). 

I went with: 

  • AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12c 24t @ 3.7Ghz
  • AMD Radeon RX 6700-XT GPU
  • 2x16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 @ 3600

Benchmarks are pretty good: 

Hasn't broken a sweat yet with any of the games/development I have been doing. Very good at the multi-threading heavy tasks I have set it.

Also upgraded my desk to a standing desk. The top is solid Black American Walnut trim with a (English or French - can't recall) Walnut veneered board in the middle. Then added three 27" curved monitors:



Excuse the grubby feet marks on the wall...

Nice setup man, you’ll be able to do much more to this website now 🥴😉 what’s the display rates on your monitors?

165Hz - I went with three of these: https://www.asus.com/uk/Displays-Desktops/Monitors/TUF-Gaming/TUF-Gaming-VG27WQ1B/

Very nice! I also recently upgraded as it was my Covid project. 

  1. Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9900KF
  2. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080
  3. 2x 16gig Gskill DDR4 @ 3600

I went a little crazy on my RGB but it is fun to play around with. I even got a RGB cover for my GPU.
