first of all hi :) thx for trying to help..
so this is my system:
r5 5500
asus tuf x570 wifi plus
g.skill 2x8 3200
500 gb msi spatium
asus tuf 3060 12gb
PSU: cooler master 750 80+ gold
monitor:BenQ mobiuz ex2510s 165hz HDR


question is my budget is really tight so i have to upgrade like this..

i can buy rx 6800 and that all my budget
or
go for rx 6700 xt + ryzen 5600
or
rtx 3070 + 16gb ram (total 32 gb ram ) or 3070+ good gaming chair :D

oooooor i can keep my PC and upgrade monitor to 144hz 1440p asus one .

I'm really lost some say even 5600 bottlenecks 6800 so it bad combo.
any suggestions ? in my country PC componenets are cheaper than in USA so feel free to give me u'r suggestions to )

The 6800 is the fastest card of those. I will say that if you are at 1080p your 3060 is likely enough. If you go to a 6700xt, 3070 or higher I think you’ll see a gain the question is how much.

I will say that when I went to 1440p that was a huge visual upgrade, but the other side of that coin is you want a good gpu to run it. So you would likely want one of those 3 gpus if you went that way.

As far as cpu I think I’d hold with what you’ve got for the moment. You can always upgrade that later as needed, but if you go to 1440p, the cpu shouldn’t bottleneck as much.

In regards to the 3070 and a gaming chair, the 6700xt should be close in performance to the 3070, but doesn’t do ray tracing as well. However should cost a bit less. The gaming chair is a personal decision. Don’t know what you’ve got now, personally I like a good office or executive type chair vs the gaming chairs.

I’d be tempted to get a 1440p monitor, but do your research as with a 3060 you will need to turn down settings sometimes. But then you can upgrade the gpu later. Or you can go the other way and get a good gpu then update monitor at a later time.
 
Depends on the games you play and what FPS you get. With Gsync/Free Sync, FPS of about 100 in a 144hz panel would look good. So debating over 3060/3070/6800 when you get about 100fps is wasted money.
If you like AAA games with Ray tracing, maybe save it n get a RTX 4070 when it launches. the performance of 4000 series is good enough to make the wait worth it.
Upgrading to a 3000 series card when 4000 series is already out will make you have regrets after the upgrade (atleast for me)

So i bought asus 3070.. i will upgrade to ryzen 5600 to. Im not in to this... Fancy things like... Ray and hairworks and all that stuff. All i want is 165 fps on 1080p enev medium lows. So for now cpu bottlenecks me caz GPUs working 80-88% have to be 97% in best.. so waiting for my CPU to arrive ) about 4070 i live in country so far away from USA... Just delivery of 4070 will cost me like additional 3070 card 🤣🤣🤣 so ill pass for now till it gets delivered to official retailers.
Thanks anyways ❤
 
Honestly you might be fine with a 3070. A video I saw on YouTube yesterday the guy seemed to suggest that from what he was seeing the 4060ti would basically equal a 3070.

I don’t know that I’d upgrade to a 5600. I think I’d go to a 1440p monitor first. I think what you’ll find probably is that with more loads put on your new 3070 that 5500 won’t be as much of an issue.
 
IMO, such an upgrade as you've chosen, is more of a sidegrade, than an upgrade.

R5 5500 and the 5600/x are close enough. Same with the 3060 and 6700XT, at 1080p

The ideal upgrade is a every second gen sometimes more. Going from one GPU/CPU in the same product stack will give you underwhelming results.

I mean i can't say 5500 is that bad im still getting 88-97% usage on GPU but in higher loaded maps on MW2 it's just pushes CPU and load cones to 80-82% on gpu but its MW2 only i don't know i have no issues with other games..

Upgrading monitor to remove bottleneck was pretty good idea thx but its kind a experiencive for now ) thx.

Yeah , exactly. The OP can experiment with DLDSR, so you can take your 1080p model and upscale to 1440p to see what performance is like. YOu can almost guarantee it will be 99% GPU usage, which is what is best. Good call on the monitor.
