While I’m waiting for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 to be released (8th of December 2022, as I am writing this) I am looking for upgrading my GPU.
My current specs are:
CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K
Motherboard: Asus Strix B360-i gaming
RAM: 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 @2666Mhz (CL13-15-15 1.35V) Kingston Fury Renegade Black
GPU: AMD RX-580 (8GB RAM)
OS NVME: Corsair Force Series MP510 (480GB)
Data/Games NVME: Corsair Force Series MP510 CSSD-F960GBMP510 (960GB)
OS: Windows 10 Professional 64bit
Monitor: AOC C27G1
Case: CoolerMaster Elite 130 (Might be changing to a little bit bigger case in the future )
I will be gaming in 1080p, but cranking up the details, etc. as high as possible.
I’m almost 50, so gaming on 1440p, or 4K is not relevant for my old eyes
My GPU will be the bottleneck in future games, the rest of the system should still be good for some time.
My motherboard is PCI-E3.0, so is a PCI-E4.0 overkill?
I have been looking into a 2080ti, but would the 3000 series (3060, 3070) be a better option, or would an AMD GPU be better?
Thank you in advance for any feedback
