I believe that an upgrade is in order for my PC. I don’t really game as much as I used to (never really played games other than for FSX). I thought this would run at Ultra out of the box, but obviously not. Getting mainly MainThread limitations, but overall a mix of all kinds of limitations.
I assume waiting for the RTX 3080 and better GPUs will definitely help, but I am definitely looking to upgrade.
Here are my specs as of now:
Mobo : MSI X99S SLI PLUS (MS-7885)
CPU : Intel Core i7 5960X (LGA2011-3) @ 3.0 GHz
GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (11 GB GDDR 5)
RAM : G.Skill F4-2400C15-16GVR x 4 = 64 GB
SSD: Samsung SSD 950 Pro 512GB NVMe M.2
Single monitor : Philips BDM4350 43.0 inches - running it at 2160 x 1440 although native resolution is 4K @ 3840 x 2160.
I do have a few extra SSDs connected and all … but not worth mentioning.
What would you all suggest? I’ve spoken to one person so far and they seem to be getting good results with Ryzen 9 3700X along with tighter-timed RAM (at least 3600 with 14 latency).
Anyhow, there are tons of threads about performance here on the forums. If I could just get a few suggestions so I can go about planning what to do with my build.
