I was thinking to use either a Rx 570 or 580 with this processor. Couldn't find any Ryzen processors around here so only left with Intel options. Which other Intel processor would be better and around the same price?
Yes, the processor market has evolved very slowly for the past 8 years and it would work great with either a Rx 570 or a Rx 580.I was thinking to use either a Rx 570 or 580 with this processor. Couldn't find any Ryzen processors around here so only left with Intel options. Which other Intel processor would be better and around the same price?
I'd say wait for the Rx 5500. It should be released soonly and if it's priced right it would be a great value. Also if you want to save a bit of money and still get better performance look at the used graphics card market. A used 1070 is about as cheap as a new Rx 580, (where I live) and performs alot better. For an used AMD card I would go with a vega 56 or 64 which perform better than a 1070. An used graphics card is mostly a safe bet and most sites will return your money if you got scammed.I see . Can you answer another question of mine? What would you recommend with a 60hz monitor Rx 570 or 580?
Generally agreed - until we hear back from OP as to whether the 2600k is already owned, or is a used purchase they're considering, we really can't give a definitive answer.Alot of people are suggesting a Ryzen system, but if the OP already has the 2600k, it doesn't make sense to buy a completely new system when they just need a video card upgrade. The i7-2600k oc'ed to 4-4.5Ghz is only around 8-15% (depending on the OC) slower than a Ryzen 5 2600 in the games I mentioned in my previous post. You would need to get a Ryzen 3000 to see a significant increase in performance and even then it might only be good for 15fps over an i7-2600k overclocked. So this is down to either paying for a video card that can give 60-100fps at 1080p on high+ settings or a Ryzen build that doesn't solve the issue of needing a video card upgrade in the first place.
