I have questions can my pc handle GeForce RTX 3080 or it will bottlenecking and what I need to replace.

my rig
1 INTEL CORE I7 -4770K
2 GIGABYTE GTX 980 ti g1 gaming
3 RM Series™ RM750 — 750 Watt 80 PLUS® Gold Certified Fully Modular PSU
4 CORSAIR HYDRO SERIES H100I HIGH PERFOMANCE LIQUID CPU COOLER
5 GIGABYTE GA-Z87X UD4H SOCKET 1150 PROCESSOR 4TH GENERATION MOTHERBOARD
6 WINDOWS 10 PRO
7 G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL

PSU might struggle, CPU will definitely bottleneck (minimum to avoid this would probably be something like a 3700X), if you do upgrade CPU you'll want to pick up either a B450 or B550 board, which only uses DDR4 memory, so you'd need to pick up some of that too. Overall, it's probably gonna cost ~$1.5k including GPU.

Also your tower/case probably will fit in the 3080, but have you got the power connections from your psu for it? You may have to get 2x 8pin to 12 pin adapter or something

Depends on the monitor resolution. 1440p some CPU holding the card back depending on the game, 4K you should be fine.

You might need a bigger power supply also.

EDIT for a 1080p monitor the 3080 is just overkill.

Of course it can handle it but it depends on a few factors. What resolution and game settings and AA methods you want? The 4770k is relevant but more so is the HEDT 4930k I had which was blistering fast and amazing at games with all the video cards I threw at it. Also depends if your CPU is OCed. Personally the 3080 for your rig would be a waiste of money at the 1080p you will be forced to play at which is not a bad thing. The CPU will get taxed and you will suffer and suffer a great money loss in these covid-19 times. I suggest instead grab a 3060 or a 3070 and enjoy 1080p at 60fps locked then when you upgrade your CPU and RAM and MOBO your frame rates will fly above the roof and you can then play at 1440p resolution. Good Luck.👶🎗✝

3060 doesn't exist, 3070 isn't out yet. Why would he lock at 60fps on 1080p with a GPU more powerful than a 2080ti? He should be running at least 240fps, even with a 60hz monitor there's no reason to cap it at 60.

I never said it exists. I was talking future like in December or so. Also there will be a 3060Ti.

Your power supply is about six years old now? Maybe seven? It will have degraded in the noise level of power output, and will also have a degraded maximum sustained power output. The 30 series is extremely sensitive and has large power surges at times. So if there's a point of failure it will be there.

That said, the 4770k will suffer from larger frame time variation. (Will stutter more) than a more modern CPU.

And if you aren't using a 3080 on at least a 2K monitor (2560x1440) then it will be overkill by a large margin.

Yes, old PSUs should absolutely be replaced especially if you're going to run any of the 3XXX GPUs. I recently had to replace a 7 year old Seasonic X with a Corsair RMx 750. Even the best PSUs can falter over time.

It looks to me like he tossed in a new power supply. The RM750 released in 2019.

Yes I agree, we do not want to both your components my friend. I wouldn't gear up with that old of a no name PSU. Grab something like a SeaSonic or a EVGA 550w 80+ Bronze Rating and give enouigh ampage on 12v rail for your rig. You are however limited in future proof as if you want a 4000 series or 5000 series one day that 550w won't cut it. But for now your good.

That's completely wrong. The Ryzen 3000 series are 95W average with the max being 125W. They're some of the most energy efficient CPUs available on the market right now. The 5000 series won't be that much different. My point is they won't be using any more power. It's usually overclocking and GPU overclocking that push PSUs over the edge. You won't need a higher wattage PSU with each new generation. As far as GPUs go, the 3090 is an anomaly in how much energy it uses, it will (hopefully) be corrected by the next generation.

Oh MOD we are tangled and confused sorry. I am talking about his Video Card update along with other updates. Im saying a new nVidia 4000 or 5000 series will not run a 550w CPU I suggested for him. That is all. Also yes Ryzen are very power efficient you are totally correct on that note. Supprisingly the 9900k is only 95w TDP which is good I suppose but at lower core count.

The 3090 is kind of an anomaly in terms of how much power it uses. And NVIDIA has received a lot of bad press for it already, and I'm assuming that it will be corrected when the 4090 / 5090 comes out in two years or more.
