Hi ,

I would like to ask you for advice, iam thinking about how to change my pc so i can play cyberpunk 2077.
The system requirements:



My PC:
  • Intel Core i7 5820K
  • MSI X99S SLI PLUS Intel X99 (So.2011-3 Quad Channel DDR4 ATX Retail)
  • 16 GB DDR4 RAM
  • Fractal Design Define R4
  • 450 Watt Corsair CS Series Modular 80+ Gold
  • MSI GeForce GTX 960 (2GB)
I think that my CPU can still handle the game and I with a better graphics card i could play on mid/high settings. CPU Comparison i7-4790 vs my Core-i7-5820K
Am I correct or is this more "wishful thinking"?

My plan would be to buy a RTX 3070 with a new power supply (650W) and in a few years when the CPU is no longer up to date, to upgrade the motherboard, the RAM and the CPU.
What do you think of the idea? Should I consider anything else?

Thanks in advance,

Are you sure you can get your hands on a RTX 3070 before December 10th? Might be something to double check.
I hope for Friday, but it wouldn't be too bad to wait a month. Apart from the availability, would my plan work or would you do something different?

Sorry I'm a bit of in the same boat, looking to upgrade but need advice. Just crashed into a wall when trying to buy the 3070, they're sold out everywhere for me unfortunately.
