 | 
United Kingdom Mattthematt 
I have a 1050ti becuase I build my pc during the ethereum craze and other gpus were pricey af. I have a well paid job now plus prices are more normal so should I upgrade and what should I buy?

Mainly dota 2 but I probably would play more tripple A tittles, such as the new cod if my pc could hack it

The next best gpus were selling for £300+ due to the etherium craze IF you could even get your hands on one since they were being rationed. I simply didnt have the money and i needed a pc for gaming/uni work

Not sure if you can still buy it new, since they don't produce them anymore. If you can find it then buy it new, but I bought 2 second hand and they both work perfectly fine. You could try looking for evga ones since they still have warranty for a very long time even if you didn't buy it yourself.

ebay has money back guarantee
2019-10-10 09:11
I bought a used 1080 Ti on ebay for a little under 500$. Not getting scammed is pretty easy. Step 1: Check seller reviews are they negative? Don't buy it. Are they nonexistent? Then don't buy it. Step 2: Ebay money back guarantee if you find a listing with this guarantee, you will get your money refunded if the item is not as described or damaged. Step 3: Profit!
2019-10-10 09:43
Depends on ur whole system (cpu, ram, power supply), also how much money do you want to spend...

Pairing any high end gpu with that system would be dumb.... thats a really low end system. RX 580 is the highest I would pair with that.
2019-10-10 09:14
Yeah, what am I thinking... That shit will blow balls, whatever GPU you plug into it anyway...

Is it even worth bothering with? I’m tempted to upgrade the cpu as well, idk if I could upgrade that cpu without upgrading the mobo

You can because amd allows you to unlike intel. You can go straight to a 3rd gen Ryzen, which will be a huge upgrade.

I bought that cpu as a placeholder anyway, would I not need to do anything to the mobo at all? Just plug it straight in and sort the cooler out etc?
2019-10-10 09:46
Check your motherboard compatibility with 300 series (some mothwrboards have their limits), also i wouldn't go with lower freq memory than 3200mhz (3600mhz is the sweet spot) so that also could be a problem... but u can still sell that one stick, and buy better rams, if u don't have 3200mhz ram... amd psu will cause some problems too, u cant really go better than rx 570/or equivalent bcs 580 and higher want atleast 500w psu (may be new amd rx 5500 will solve that but u can't be sure)

95% of 300 series motherboards support 3rd gen, but check compatibility list to make sure. If compatible you just need to update the BIOS before changing CPU. As for RAM you want to be at 3200Mhz or higher to get the best out of your CPU. You can try overclocking your RAM. I got a 3000Mhz kit up to 3800Mhz. As for PSU your 450W should be borderline acceptable for an RX 580 at most if you don't overclock the CPU or GPU.

Just update BIOS and you're good. Get a Ryzen 3600 + RX 580. Make sure your ram is at 3200+ too

8GB is better but it isn't worth if its priced more than 10% above 4GB. It wont make much of a difference unless you plan on keeping it for several years.

I just yolod and and bought the 8gb. Sounds cooler, just hope my psu can hack it xD arrives tomorrow can’t wait
2019-10-10 15:34
for that processor 1050 ti is pretty much the highest I would go, if you want to upgrade a GPU you should upgrade the cpu aswell as it would be the bottleneck
2019-10-10 09:38
Whatever GeForce you can afford. And never listen to those morons that try to make you buy only RTX 2060S or 2070 for 1080p because 2070S/2080S/ti will give you "too many" fps, fuck them in the ass, in the end 2080ti will handle newer games for longer than fucking RTX 2060.

2080Ti is a dumb financial decision though
2019-10-10 09:12
Yeah but only if you regard whole RTX series as overpriced which it is. The guy has lots of money so it should not be a problem for him though.

No its just the 2080Ti. The other cards aren't "good" value but they're acceptable. The 2080Ti costs 50% more than a 2080 for 25% more performance.
2019-10-10 09:36
If you check out the prices of the previous two generations - you will see that RTX is way overpriced, not just 2080ti. Those cocksuckers priced it as if it was an extention to the previous GTX series (GT 1030 - GTX 1080ti) which it's fucking not. That's why I bought still an overpriced piece of shit but not as overpriced as RTX is.

True but the 2080Ti is on another level of overpriced. Thats why I bought a 1080Ti.
2019-10-12 11:24
Just buy the best gpu your budhet allows
2019-10-10 09:06
wait till next year man, intel will release it's gpu, rx5800 by amd and rtx3000 by Nvidia. All their prices are expected to be much lower so you can expect to get 2080ti like performance for half the price now.

And then wait till the year after that... and the year after that... and it keeps on going. New stuff always gets released there's no point waiting unless theres something right around the corner.
2019-10-10 09:11
A year ago I wanted to build a new pc, I looked for parts and decided on saving up until ryzen 3000 came out and then I built up a budget and made a build I'm happy with. The key is to set a deadline like when the next generation cpu/gpu comes out etc, even if you don't want the newest ones the last generation will be cheaper.
2019-10-10 09:17
You can buy rx5700/xt but I won't buy any higher-end GPU now.

if you got a decent psu, at least 550W you can go for 5700Xt - best bang for the buck atm.
2019-10-10 09:13
This year doesn't hold much of a choise for new gpu. NVidia RTX refresh which is based on raytracing solution that's about to go obsolete. AMD 5700(xt) maybe.
2019-10-10 09:14
If your pc is fine for now I'd recommend save up until next summer and upgrade most of it. I assume you have 2x4gb ram, you could buy an identical set and plug in.

My mobo has two ram slots, it’s mini itx
2019-10-10 09:31
is it a b350? you're gonna need b450/x470 or later if you want ryzen 3000 or later. Regarding ram you could buy 2x16gb for ~180$ not sure what 2x8gb would cost

b350 supports ryzen 3000
2019-10-10 14:51
wait till 2020 . next gen navi + ampere + intel if its ok would be really competitive. xx60 or the next 300-350 navi card

Yes. Keep that one for backup or sell it if you need money and buy a new one, which one will depend of your budget. The cheapest ok one would be a rx 570 or 580 armor. If you have big budget go for gtx 1070, 1080, 1660, 2060... etc
2019-10-10 10:44
If you can afford it, sure. Honestly, if you're gonna be playing games like Dota and CSGO mostly, then no point upgrading. But if you wanna play newest upcoming titles, then you better get a 1080 or better.
2019-10-10 10:46
Get an RTX 20xx, better in the long run
2019-10-10 10:48
The best option now for price/processing is GTX 1660
