I am having a hard time picking my next motherboard upgrade for under $200.
My setup is:
Is it better to play at a higher FPS and lower Hz refresh rate or lower FPS and higher Hz refresh rate? To explain a little better, would it be better if I played my games at 100 FPS on 60Hz or if I played at 100 FPS on 144Hz?
Since my monitor is a BenQ XL2411 but only have a 1060 6GB graphics card, I cap out at about 100-120 FPS on Apex Legends, which is my currently most played game, but I have similar FPS on other games as well. I just wanted to know which would be the optimal experience.
What will be the best mobo combo for Ryzen 5 1500X, and is it worth buying Ryzen 5 1500X if you are having a low budget, or would you opt for i3 10th Gen or i5 or i7?
I received a GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5700 XT from a friend; however, I have an ASUS 970 pro gaming/aura board that is compatible with NVIDIA SLI and CrossFire. I installed it, and now I repetitively receive Blue Screens of death when the load becomes too great. I think it is on the CPU end, AMD FD9370FHHKWOF FX-9370 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition but I am not sure.
This unit has been a project for some time, and I do not have much money. Is there a way to set my board or card to be compatible with the new hardware?
I just built a new rig with X570 mobo, Ryzen 5600x CPU, 16GB DDR4 4000 RAM, and PCIe 4 M.2 SSD. My goal is to run all the latest games, including Cyberpunk, at 1080p and minimum 60 FPS or higher.
What would you recommend for a GPU?
I got offered a used Intel i9-10900K CPU + $400 cash for my ZOTAC RTX 3070. Is this a value trade or not?
Is the 10900K a good gaming CPU?
Guys, I just bought an ultrawide VA 34" monitor. My existing graphic card is an AMD Radeon HD 6700 series, which has a DisplayPort v1.1, the monitor needs v1.2 onwards, so I can't get the higher resolutions.
What GPU cards can you recommend for my 2011 spec PC? I need DP v1.4, at least 1 HDMI and DVI port. I built my PC nine years ago and mainly use it for work, and I only play old school DOOM these days but might try something newer.
My PC specs:
Any advice would be appreciated!
I'm finally thinking about making the switch to PC, but I just need some advice if these specs are any good, and if they're good enough for the next couple of years at least.
I'm doing a new build with my RTX 2060 as a starting point. First question. What CPU would cause closest to 0% bottleneck? Second question. What motherboard would best fit with these + having the potential to upgrade the CPU in one, two, or even three years? Thank you.
I'm currently playing Need for Speed, Crysis Remastered, Call of Duty, all with no performance issues on my Core i7-6700K GTX 1070SC system. More recently, I have started playing Flight Simulator and found my system cannot handle it without significant frame loss.
What CPU/GPU combo would you recommend for the highest quality settings at 1440p 144Hz? I'm hoping these upgrades could carry with me if I decide to go 4K in the future.
