I look at it as I know a fair bit by now....but I can always know more, and with two many variations out now. Especially on Nvidia's side, you need to really stay sharp and concentrate. So you don't end up buying something that is a rip off, or not right for your needs, price e.t.e So that's why I there......

Msi gtx 1060 6gb. Not sure where this falls on the scale. I paid a fair bit for it, with a healthy discount. Never used a gaming pc before this. Have no idea about overlooking.
Fans, i only have one (cash is tight) is it better on intake or exhaust whilst i wait for cash flow.

What is the best budget CPU that works with a RTX 2080 or a 1080ti can someone give me a link to a video also I don't wanna have bottled down due to my CPU ?

Mihók Bulcsú - 23 hours ago
I need all!
Quick question: I have an FX8150 and a RX580 and my cpu is definitely bottlenecking, even though I still enjoy 1440p gaming seemingly with no problem. But I do want to upgrade to Ryzen, the question is what CPU would be ideal to upgrade to in order to pair perfectly with the RX580.
Right now I'm looking at a B450 with the 2700, that is the price range, or I could go with the X470 and 2600X, or wait till 3rd gen.
Also, should I consider getting another RX580 for crossfire, do all games support that? It's a good price now, and upgrading to Radeon VII is out of the question.
freethinker4liberty - 5 hours ago
+EvoBeard Man, that was an awesome reply, thank you very much. I will have to think about it, but definitely you already talked me out of the 6 core. I definitely need cores, as besides gaming and streaming I do video editing and lots of multitasking, and there is nothing worse than waiting 12 hours for a 2 hour movie to encode into HEVC with my FX. As far as the RX580, it's 8GB, I am on a budget and already far overpaid for this card, like 3x what it is today because it was the mining craze a year ago. It's still a good mining card even with the crappy prices for coins, but that would be another advantage of getting a second RX580, I just want to know what I can expect from adding one more, will I get like RTX2070 performance out of two RX580s? In all games, or just some? Also, should I then definitely get the X470 over the B450 since I would want to maximize crossfire, or does it not matter?
EvoBeard - 16 hours ago
Are you gaming only? Streaming or editing/use of the extra cores/threads? If Just gaming and streaming, you can drop to a 2600/X, especially if you plan on dropping in a Ryzen 3000. B450 vs X470 is more about your needs from the board. B450s have less SATA and less USB ports, you'll also lose 1 or 2 of those SATA ports if you use an M.2. You can however, get very good B450 motherboards that will cater to not only the high end Ryzen 2000, but overlock them to their capabilities also, assuming non-extreme cooling solutions and target frequencies. [] -Anything mid-mid ranged and higher on that chart. If it suits your needs, a good B450 board with a 2600/X will be more than ample, opt for a 2700X if you need the extra threads and don't plan on upgrading. Note that Zen2 is due to bring PCiE Gen4 and will only be available on the 5XX Chipsets, so if you're happy with the rumoured extra cores, clocks speed and IPC Zen2 will bring, buy whatever board you will take into the future, and a 2600/X, then when Zen2 comes out, sell your CPU and grab the 'supposed' 8/16 R5 or even the 12/24 R7 if you so desire. Keep in mind that even the 2400 will best your FX, if you're looking at a placeholder. I have the 2600 (which is comparable to my 5820k so I'm happy), and if the rumours are true, I'll be grabbing the 3600X and focusing on GPU/Case upgrades only. As for Crossfire with your 580, is it 4 or 8gb? Keep in mind that VRAM doesn't stack (apart from very few games like AoTS?), so you'll still be limited by VRAM, plus you will be susceptible to stuttering/scaling issues as and when. When CFX works it'll be great, but generally speaking you're gonna have much less hassle going with a single card solution.

Step 1) Don't buy the GTX 1650
pyro226 - 2 days ago
+Andrew Cobb Andrew Cobb At launch, both the 1660 and 1660Ti were good values. AMD / retailers dropped $10 off the 570 and 580. Vega 56 dropped $100. All of this was to bring it in line with Nvidia's performance / $. The PCI powered versions are only going to be worse. The valid use cases are fairly niche (pointed ways around in previous reply). I wouldn't buy the card, and I'm a Nvidia fanboy after being screwed by AMD's linux drivers.
Andrew Cobb
Andrew Cobb - 2 days ago
+pyro226 You misunderstand. I'm not saying reviewers didn't explain the driver issues. I'm saying the drivers issues pissed off the reviewers, so they didn't bother explaining the merits of the card. They only trashed it. It has plenty of completely valid use cases. It performs exactly as one should have expected it to. Also, like *all* nvidia cards, it is over priced. I'm just saying it would have been reviewed better and would have been received better if not for the issue with the late driver release
pyro226 - 2 days ago
+Andrew Cobb Hardware Unboxed explained the driver issue. It's 10% slower on average USING THE NEW DRIVERS in the 12 games they tested, but it's by roughly a 20% margin on half of the games. That's for the 6-pin powered version. The version that draws only PCI power will only be slower. Upgrading the PSU on old OEM PCs is generally a good idea anyway and can be done for as low as $25 if waiting for a sale. For mini builds, I would either go fully Integred with a 2400G, or I would build using a case that allows for large cards (Fractal 500 / CM 130 can fit Titans).
Andrew Cobb
Andrew Cobb - 2 days ago
An RX 570 outperforms a 1650, but it's not always a better buy. It's a different class of card, it's a completely different power envelope - and for the huge number of situations where an RX 570 requires a PSU upgrade, yeah, a 1650 is a better buy. Which has always been what that particular place in the card hierarchy has been about. The only reason why the GTX 1050 and 1050ti were ever recommended in actual builds instead of upgrades to prebuilds is because of the GPU shortage during the mining craze. Honestly, everyone is shitting on the 1650 because of the driver issue, not because of the way it performs. Reviewers were just pissed off about the drivers so they didn't bother explaining that for Nvidia. Viewers just take it at face value, because it's just easier to jump on this bandwagon of believing that Nvidia is somehow ashamed of the 1650 being outperformed by the 570, and it makes them feel like they're part of something - part of getting a swipe in after feeling slighted. I own an RX 570. It's an amazing card for the money. I also know how hot and huge this thing is. I wouldn't put this in an itx build under any circumstances. I just wouldn't. You could easily incorporate a 1650 into an ITX build, or slap it into an off lease dell without any PSU upgrades necessary, and bam, you've got a 1080p gaming machine.

Do the same video but everyone does panels,GPU and CPU in different videos. Why not take the top 5 panels and say ok panel a should be pared with these GPU and These CPU. Maybe talk about the performance of FPS on them. Some day I want to update my FX8350 and 980ti and a ultra wide 1080 to a 4k set up. But man it hard to know I'm will a ryzen 2700x be able to run a 2080ti or whatever new cards are at 4k with out bottle necking.

What if you have a rig already and instead of upgrading to a newer card just going sli with the card you already have in your rig. I have a msi 980 ti. Wouldnt it be more cheaper to just get another 980ti or still better to upgrade with 1 single card i understand sli is supposedly dead for the newer generation but for older gen still exists. Or just not worth it?

csandazoltan - 14 days ago
I'm Sorry Jay, i have not found this video helpful, it was about bios and fan design. That does not help for me to which one to buy.
I have a 750ti, which is in a need to be upgrade. I'm not a AAA gamer, i don't play the shiny titles, but a new game, Satisfactory makes my long term buddy bleed.
I'm not for all ultra settings, i'm able to compromise.
I had an eye out for a 1050ti as a successor, but even that becomes obsolete pretty soon. I went up for a 1060 3gb (i know i know, you hate that) but in performance, it would be good for me.
But then 6gb version is not that much expensive, after that the new 1660 is not that much more expensive.

So i am stuck in this frickin' loop, where i want a durable gpu for not recent titles (FFXIV, Satisfactory, Diablo 3, eve online) with medium to high 1080p@60, but "With a little bit more i can have a better experience"
Sorry again Jay, i don't overclock, i don't care about the fans, i'm a function, before form guy...

mobo guide 👍
Its just few days back when I got into issue which GPU should I buy to replace my trusty ASUS GTX 950
After some research and checking prices I had two favorite:
EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC ULTRA GAMING (2 fans)
GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 GAMING OC PRO 6G (3 fans)
(The price over here is same for both cards).
Reason why is as I wasn't sure which one I should buy is that I have crappy Case (Zalman Z1) but with "decent" intake fan (Noctua NF-F12 iPPC-3000 PWM [Btw is that even intake fan? Or should it be used for Air cooler / rads? :D ] ).
In the end I'm going for EVGA card as in my opinion the Gigabyte card is so long it would block some air flow in case 🤷‍♂️:D

The fact that EVGA has gone to a triple slot design for their basic cards is so stupid. It's short, which would be great for ITX cases, but most ITX cases cannot take a triple-slot GPU. In any other system, it blocks an additional PCI-e slot.

the only point of advice is get the fastest you can afford.
while i'm at it let's clear up the bottleneck myths. this is how it's supposed to go. it's okay for the GPU to wait on the CPU-resolved by faster GPU, it's not okay for the CPU to wait on the GPU, this is the only bad bottle neck, and why games run like garbage on Intel HD GPU's.
bottlenecking implies a whole lot of something trying to squeeze through a small hole. the term is loosely applied, and should probably be re-termed as CPU side or GPU side lag. it could be used to imply something like to many bits attempting to come through a pcie slot, where the pcie slot can not support the bandwidth of the card, but let's face it the card is ONLY going to process the information as fast as it can receive it. it's not at all like we're trying to cram a 1024bit card down a 64BIT slot. That's not how it works. So again, the real problem is who is waiting on who, since the when people who refer to bottlenecks, they often term them as gpu or cpu side bottlenecking. that's not right. it's not a squeeze or a funnel, it's a lag. and when the CPU gets stuck waiting on the GPU then we have slow graphics card, which is the case with just about every intel HD GPU, but if the GPU is working fast enough to where it waits on the CPU, then all is good, because we're running the game as fast as our CPU will allow. How's that for a run on sentence??
GPU's often get upgraded before CPU's do, and a majority of lag we see in upgraded systems is CPU side lag where the CPU waits on the GPU. This is fine, at least we know we're getting the most out of our CPU.
I.E. i'm running an AMD Phenom II x6 1075T over clocked to 3.6-4GHZ. depending on needs. However I'm running an EVGA GTX 980 SuperClocked. Can anyone tell who is the faster of the 2?? That's right my GPU is way faster. So I'm getting the most out of my CPU, and my GPU has a little headroom for other stuff like extra frames and FX. The AMD CPU is antiquitous, but can anyone guess my framerates on Doom2016 or Wolfenstein II: The New Collosus??
Doom2016 = 300FPS(The games built in cap), and
Wolfenstein II: The New Collusus = 400-600FPS in menus, and 120-200FPS with my fx on medium high.
Can anyone guess why my FPS is so insane with such an old CPU which has such garbage scores for single threaded processing??
While people with brand new Intel chips can't touch those FPS??
That's right, it's because my GPU is doing all the work. My system has CPU side lag, where the GPU gets stuck waiting on the CPU, that's not bad. Other wise I wouldn't be getting over 600FPS on wolfenstein with low-medium settings.
But if it had been that my CPU was stuck waiting on the GPU, can you guess what would have happened?? say for example a nice fast intel i7 with an Intel HD 620 GPU laptop?? That's right. garbage. Doom 2016 can barely squeeze 30FPS on such a fast brand new processor, because the GPU is garbage.
If you're configuration is one such that the GPU is not fast enough you will see extremely poor framerates, hiccups, stalls, and artifacts.
If by chance yer CPU is too slow to run the game, then install the fastest GPU possible. I got friends still running core2duo's and quads
with top of the line GPU's and getting incredible framerates. That's right. Core2Duo is still relevant.
Even on my AMD Phenom II x4 945(not my x6 mentioned above), I'm still getting wicked framerates
In summation, what you want is the fastest GPU you can afford. It resolves GPU side lag, and CPU side lag isn't going to hurt you if you have a proper GPU to pick up the slack.
Everything else is bullshit. Just get the fastest GPU you can afford, and everything else will fall into place. Your budget is what determines what GPU you should get. Nothing else,
because if you can't afford it, then how can you possibly get it?? You can't squeeze water from a rock. That's not how it works.
Whether you buy your GPU outright in one day, or even save for it overtime, your budget determines what GPU you should and shouldn't get.
-And if you want to figure out which GPU is the fastest you can afford, just head over to passmark and find the card with the highest benchmarks in your budget.
As I mentioned before, My cpu is probably older than a majority of people reading this, and i'm doing just fine. You could probably achieve similar FPS with a GTX 980,
and say, an intel i3 4160 3.6GHZ.

I find it funny how worthless this video is with such a legit title, this video does not show you how to pick a video card based on your other hardware configuration such as a CPU, just tell you the slight differences between bios and coolers, and the more obvious differences, dude just wanted to show off his several gpus is all

Good video, but what would be even more helpful for me is which card(s) can drive what size monitors without overkill. So, do I need 2 2080TIs in SLI to drive my beautiful 1280x800 CRT monitor? Will my Nvidia GTX 285 card sitting in my closet be enough for the new 49" 5kx2k monitor I'm looking to buy? Okay, probably not, but a breakdown between the 20xx(ti) and 1660(ti) would be nice on a 5kx2k, 4kx1080, and so on would be quite helpful.
