its just a fact if youre playing new games you are never hitting 240 with a single 2080ti
there are tons of benchmarks out there that prove it





you see that number at the bottom left ?



with 2080ti the only games that you can average 1080p 240+ is csgo type of games with low requirements ..so you turn down a few settings
You talking about 240fps like he was asking to run games at that....

he was told 2080ti was too much for 1080p and that is not true
telling him to buy a 4k monitor to justify a 2080 is stupid

nope i was simply displaying that a single 2080 is not too much card for 1080p
a single 2080 in other games can drop to below 90 fps @1080

like i said the point was telling him to get a 4k monitor just because he has a good graphics card is stupid and thinking you wont ever lag with a 2080 @1080p is also wrong even if he has a 144hz monitor it will dip below his refresh rate

if hes playing any shooter at all you want at least 144 which is probably the monitor he already has. 240 hz monitors are the standard now and if hes playing any esports games the last thing you want is a 4k monitor that you can only get low fps with

240 are the standard now huh. That video you posted showed one clear thing, the CPU is the bottleneck. You realize that right? I ain't going to go back and forth with you. If I recall correctly he never asked to play games at 240 or whatever your standard is. He never said hey I'm pro gamer and I need a rig for strictly 1080p. And as you can see in his latest post, he's playing The Witcher 3.

oh ok i guess he built a 3k computer only to play the witcher
youre stupid af if you think 1080p 240 is only for pro gamers
maybe if your dumbass actually tried it youd find out refresh rate > resolution

bottom line is 60hz is trash on pc and people suggesting he buy a 4k monitor to justify a 2080 are retarded period

Do you know what I've tried? Nah.

I don't care about 240hz. I know plenty of PC gamers and none of them have 240hz monitors either. I've gamed on 120-144hz. 60fps has been fine for me for awhile now. I don't care to play competitively, I don't have time for that, I don't care to have a small desk for some 20 something inch monitor either. Personally I'd rather play at 4k, 60fps, graphics turned all the way up than 1080p and turning settings down just to hit 240+ fps in Single Player games.

Budget: $2,000 USD

Main Use: Rate 1-5. 5 being Highest:
Light Gaming: 4
Gaming: 3
Emulation (PS2/Wii): 4
Video Editing: 2
Streaming games in HD: 2
3D/Model work (and what program): 1
General Usage (Word, Web, 1080p playback): 5
4K Research/Watching Cams: 6

Monitor Resolution: I don't even know sh*t about resolution and frames. Will buy a monitor outside of my budget if needed.

List SPECIFIC games or applications that you MUST be able to run well: Is 30FPS acceptable? 60? 120? How important is PhysX / SuperSampling / CUDA to you?

I don't know sh*t about FPS. I have a terrible habit of constantly multitasking and having 20+ browser tabs open. I will be mostly browsing (watching fine European bi*ches on cam in 4k), excel spreadsheets, light work in Photoshop, running some emulators, and whatever AAA games my friends are playing that they will try to get me to fu*k with. They are apparently still on that Overwatch & Rust wave. Possibly some classic WoW. And Witcher 1-3 that sh*t looks godly I will be playing that for sure.

Looking to reuse any parts?: Nope

When will you build?: Do you have a deadline? Not really, planning on copping during Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. I hear I can save money to spend on other upgrades on the build.

Will you be overclocking?: Maybe, I got a friend who gets off on that sh*t and will be showing me how to build the PC.

Other things of note: I've always been partial to optical drives although most case makers are moving on from them. For that reason I was looking to go with a Fractal Design Define R6 USB-C ATX Mid Tower Case although I know I can get an external drive.

All help and advice is appreciate.

Help me out BX!!!

I came into a few years old gaming PC and tried to get the specs as best I could...Please tell me what I should upgrade and what I can get by with..I may be trippin on some of these part IDs so plz let me know if any are incorrect..


Motherboard: ASUS Z97-PRO

GPU: just bought a EVA GEFORCE GTX 1660 $220 (should I return or keep?)

CPU: intel core i5 4670k 3.4ghz

Power Supply: Corsair RM750

So the GPU I just bought fits but I dont have a cable (8pin) to power it to the PSU so I guess I need to cop that cable before I can continue?

I think the motherboard needs to be updated from what the guy at microcenter told me

The GPU is cool is your just casually playing. You don't need a whole ne power supply, you can just get an adapter, BUT, I would probably just get a new power supply lol

main thing you should upgrade tho is obviously the cpu/mobo and ram..

whats your budget? Microcenter always has the best deals too so your in luck living by one..

Steam used to be the main launcher, its still the best and preferred, but epic been putting in work handing dope free games..

But there's , , , , , xbox, and even now.. Some people complain and don't wanna have to bother with so many launchers, I could care less so I have all of them lol

but again, steam is by far the most popular, and you should be able to find most of what you want/need there, so start there and branch out..
