Discussion two graphic upgrades

At this point I think you should upgrade your CPU, motherboard and RAM as well.

yea i thought about that but if i go that route i put together a brand new rig and that cost $5700! lol i know thats a bit much
You don’t really NEED a whole new system but if you are planning to play triple A titles, a 4 core 4 thread CPU is past its prime. I wouldn’t even recommend anyone to buy a 4 core 8 thread at this point. Spending any more than what I listed just for a GPU and monitor alone would be too much even for that CPU. Even that 2070 super is gonna be bottlenecked hard with your CPU. Getting a 1660ti would be my max for that CPU, but again it’s time for a new CPU also.

Better CPU, better motherboard, RAM is already as good as you needed, better GPU, cheaper comparable monitor on sale.
