hi. sorry for bad english
what is the best gpu for i5 8400 in 1080p gaming?
is 1080 or 1070ti suitable enough? i went a head to head cpu & gpu combine with no any bottlenecks.
how about rx 5700?

Hello, no matter what you do your system will always be bottlenecked sadly however you can minimize the bottleneck by getting good hardware combinations.

yeah I know that, but what is that perfect combination?
Well just be logical you wouldn't spend barely $100 on a CPU and put a $1000 monster with it or vice versa, to answer your question yes that CPU should handle any modern GPU just fine as for the GPU what games do you play and on what settings what's your GPU budget?

I would say go for a rx 5700. Good gpu, and should last you a good time. Beats the 2060 and is also quite cheap. Should run most games at above 60 fps @ 1080p. Your cpu will most probably bottle neck you, however.

I agree that RX 5700 would be better however, Core i5 8400 wouldn't bottleneck the system if anything it would be the resolution that bottlenecks him as those cards aren't meant for 1600x900.
1080p 60Hz or 144Hz or other?

Make and model of PSU?
I believe they said their resolution is 1600x900 don't know about monitor tho.
