What country are you located, what is your budget, what are your current PC specs and what games do you normally play?Getting ready to upgrade from 1080p was thinking about going to 1440p. All hardware issues aside. Should I go with a 1440p monitor or a 4k monitor .
Before getting a new gpu and monitor I would look into getting a new board, cpu, RAM and possibly a psu depending on the age of your current one.Hi Why_Me,
That info was coming in the next post but happy to provide now.
This PC is used for gaming and my regular day to day stuff.
Current system: Desk Top system
Processor: Ryzen 7 1700
Memory: 16 GB
Video card: dual GeForce GTX 1070 (SLI configuration).
Monitor Asus VE247 (108p max res.)
Not going with SLI in the upgrade.
I live in the US.
Upgrade goal: upgrade the monitor and video card to enable 1440p (4k someday?)
Budget wise I am retired so cannot go for the top of the line (another reason to go with 1440p)
I have been looking at these monitors:
Gigabyte M32Q $399
Asus PG329Q $599
Ultimately may drop down to a 27” monitor.
GPU cannot go to $1, 000 maybe $600-$700 might be able to push it a bit more.
Games I like:
FPS-Battlefield series, call of duty, etc.
world of warships
I may jump into Arma 3
Looking forward to Starfield
Back in the day I lived in America’s Army
Thanks so much for your help!
Why_Me,If your motherboard supports Ryzen 5000 series cpu's with updates I would look at this cpu.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600 $137.99
Paired up with this RAM if your board supports DDR4 3200.
The 5600 would be a big step up from your current cpu without taking a big bite out of your budget. The other recommendation would be the Ryzen 7 5700X.Why_Me,
Good advice. It will be fun, To update my Bios up to current it is about 15 bios upgrades.
Although I have a few questions that might be dumb questions currently my MOB has a 7 1700x processor. You are recommending going to a 5 5600. Why not something like a 7 5800x. I see that the 5 has 2 fewer cores than the 7. it that why? I appreciate your comments
