GPU more important that RAM or CPU

Config: R5 3600, GTX580, Ram 32Gb, 512Gb SSD.
As a simmer, happy with 1440/Ultra I could have used a cheaper CPU, 16Gb RAM but could have chosen a better GPU…

Ah man I used to have one of the 580’s, absolute monster for the time! Went from that to a 960 years ago and not only was the 960 faster it also sucked less juice!

Still, that 580 was a beast!

I assume with those specs you have a pretty new motherboard? Now is a good time to upgrade GPU, you have the choice of a 2080ti second hand or the newer 30 series when they arrive, and they are looking pretty tasty!

The 580 is doing a good job, I am happy with 20/30 f/s, still exploring the various combinations of Display size and graphic sliders…
My main concern is Internet bandwidth, I only have a few Gb of 4G, ADSL is a mere 5Gb/s, useless for Bing…
