In Topic: upgrade Gpu or monitor

13 January 2019 - 08:57 AM

I don't see a reason to get RTX 2080 without playing at 1440P or above. Yes you can play BF5 with ray-tracing @ 1080P, but that's only one game. I would get new monitor first. But $400 might not get your all the bells and whistles. I paid $650 for the Acer XB271HU.  https://www.newegg.c...N82E16824106004. I can't handle TN panel colors anymore. Its IPS or nothing for me. Which is part of the price.

I found a Dell s2716dg for $300 

also i am curious about the nvidia patch allowing freesync

If anyone has a 2700X running 1080 Ti SLI go ahead, let's see what that 8-core can do,.. actually it would be interesting to see anyone's score regardless of how many cores or cards your running.   :cheers:

This is also my thought as well and I am very curious that with all this talk about at 4k they are equal because they are bottlenecked by the gpu , well remove it by running 2 gtx 1080 ti's and im better we will see the same massive delta at 4k like we see at 1080p

 

+1,.. once you overclock the hardware, the 2700X chip would most likely be outmatched by the 8700Ks higher clock frequencies. 

 

At standard clocks for gaming, the victor would be Intel's 6-core i7-8700K. For productivity at standard clocks, it goes to AMD's new 8-core R7 2700X  (yet can go back to Intel once overclocked, depending on the software).

I feel like this matchup is being avoided intentionally
