If you have the money then go for it. That cpu is meant for gaming at 1440P btw. If you're gaming at 1080P then I'd size down to a RTX 3060 Ti.I'm building a new PC. I was planning on buying piece-meal until the prices of the GPU went down but I found a new RTX3070 for around $650. Is this worth getting now or would I be better off waiting? Thanks for any input.
Again your choice of card comes down to your monitor resolution and of course budget.Thanks for the input. I'm really stuck an RTX 3070 Ti for $700 or a RTX 3060 Ti for $530. I mostly play FO4, Skyrim SE and some other open sandbox games but I purchased Metro Exodus and I can't get past the intro on my current PC and the Enhanced Edition is way beyond my PC. Thus looking at a new build because are just getting to need more. So I don't want to limit myself but I don't want to over extend on something I may not need.
Windows 11 was tailor made for Alder Lake due to the scheduler (big / little cores).well I'm continuing my build. So far I have added:
ASUS TUF Gaming Z690-Plus WiFi D4 LGA1700(Intel 12th Gen) ATX gaming motherboard
Intel Core i7-12700KF Desktop Processor
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin SDRAM (PC4-28800) DDR4 3600 CL16-19-19-3
EVGA CLC 280mm All-In-One RGB LED CPU Liquid Cooler, 2x FX13 140mm PWM Fans
WD_BLACK™ SN850 NVMe™ SSD - 2TB
But I'm having trouble figuring out which operating software to go with. Win 10 or Win 11? Win 10 I know but it is at its end of life, Win 11 isn't out in retail copies yet, but is the future. Does anyone have a recommendation which I should go with?
