looking to upgrade my pc but ive been out of the loop for a couple years so could do with a hand
AMD fx-8350 @4.8ghz
asus crosshair V formula-Z
8gb 1600mhz ddr3
Im planning to buy a an oculus rift as well as a new monitor possibly the Crossover 34U100/Crossover 3412UM or a more mainstream equivalent help here is also required (i am in the UK so may have to pay VAT-20% on a korean monitor)
thinking of going for an rtx2060 or a gtx 1660, 32gb of corsair vengeance 2400mhz as i dont want to end up “tfw fell for the 16gb ram meme”
thanks, sorry if anything here is horribly wrong, this is my first post
gaming and CAD work as i am an engineering student who has foolishly decided to spend their next student loan on pc upgrades
located in the uk
looking to buy the components within the next month but no urgent need as my pc is still fully functional
need a new monitor as in the OP looking at something 3440*1440, unsure if i would prefer a curved or flat monitor as of yet
Thanks for posting. Welcome to the forum, I unfortunately don’t have much to add it seems like your barking up the right tree. My opinion on one thing, I have used several curved screens lately, and feel they add nothing to my experience, and it seems to me that if it was a price difference money is better spent on a better flat monitor. I felt like the screens I was using were great in only one spot, one angle. I move around alot and change positions, rolling my chair all around the place. Just my opinion.
what? me, correct? what nonsense is this? feel i need someone to tell me im wrong. any reasons to not get the 2060?
i had the same thought about curved monitors as most of the time, watching youtube, i am in all number of positions, any recommendations? or should i take my thread to a monitor section (if there is one)
Depending on what PSU, if your software cares about CUDA and current prices, Vega56 might be an idea. Is a bit faster in some games, a bit slower in others. As said, depends on bunch of factors.
It only makes sense in combination with a screen upgrade (make a seperate thread for that, I am of no help with monitors). As of now, it is an upgrade, your CPU will hold it back though.
I suffered FX-8000 series myself. Condolences.
Get the DDR3 used. IMO it is not worth throwing money at museum pieces.
never really heard of them but will have a look at kavari, ive got 2 4gb sticks of 1600mhz hardly the best stuff so just looking to replace it all with 4 8gb sticks
nah never looked at OCing the ram bc its fairly budget stuff
did it few years ago based off a jayz2cents vid, if i remember correctly i upped the blck until I couldn’t any more and then upped the multiplier the last little bit all while upping the voltage bit by bit not to a crazy amount though
yeah no clue yet, will make a thread later on probably in the misc hardware section might just end up spending a bit more for a 2070 and a 40inch 4k will have to see what others recommend
