Finally New Rig

After 7 years of great service, time has come to retire my 4790K.

These are new specs:

Motherboard: ASUS ROG Crossfire VIII Hero
CPU: Ryzen R9 3900x
Memory: G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32 GB 3600MHz CL16
SSD’s: Samung EVO Plus 970 500Gb NVMe - Samung EVO Plus 970 1TB NVMe



So you’re using the on board gpu??

I should probably retire my i5 3570K soon.

I should probably retire myself soon

I had no need for new GPU. My Vega 64 is doing just fine. :smiley:


My Vega is still going strong. I’m looking forward to the next gen that is hopefully less hot…


Me too. So far Vega can perfectly run all the games I’m playing. :smiley:

I’m looking forward to amd punching above mid-range in their gpu department. Took them a decade to become actual competition again in the cpu department, how long must we wait for them to make good gpus again? I had an amd gpu in every pc I’ve had (I’m talking since way back in the ATI days) up until the most recent when i said fuck amd, I want ACTUAL top of the line. I’m not paying attention to them until they release an xx80 ti competitor.

For someone who wants a high end gpu, that’s fair enough. On other side I don’t need a high end one so AMD gpus work fine for me.

I wonder when will I upgrade my 2080. That thing runs 4k like its a joke. I want 8k now.

I only upgraded from my 1080ti (which was doing a lot of games at 2160p or higher at max setting >60fps) so I could get 4k at >120hz). I wasn’t planning on upgrading for a while otherwise. You should be good for a while.

You should’ve waited for Ampere which is literally coming out in few months

Meh. If my 1080ti is still worth 500-600 cad used, so will my 2080ti.
