what cpu do you have again? Ryzen 2xxx are getting stellar reviews rn, and GPUs on the secondhand market are dropping like a stone. I thinka  1080 these days are... about $400? I plan on picking up a 2nd 1080 and a SLI bridge for funsies.


i5 6500, which in retrospect was a poor choice even when i bought it

i should have gone for at least the 6600k, that would have probably kept me comfortable for significantly longer

oh well i've learned my lesson: never take advice from [glow=black,2,300]r*ddit[/glow] ugly;

it doesn't really make sense for me to upgrade to anything right now though because gaming performance on the ryzen side isn't nearly $400 (cpu + mobo) better than what the 6500 offers, and on the intel side, i would be crazy to """upgrade""" from a 14nm cpu to another 14nm cpu lol

i'll wait for intel's 10nm cannon lake to FINALLY arrive in 2019 (assuming they don't delay again) before i seriously consider a cpu upgrade

on the gpu side, i have a fury, and really its biggest limitation is the 4gb of vram

though again, upgrading now seems silly because pascal is so old and gpu prices so absurd and nothing short of a 1080ti would make any sense as an upgrade from a fury

so i'll just be patient and wait4volta

but it means i'll be stuck on this build for at least another year before i make any significant changes to it

[spoiler]

but honestly i play so few cutting-edge games at launch that i hardly even feel its limitations lol

in truth, i'm just a consumerist whore :'([/spoiler]

Oh you have a fury? That's the one with the little watercooler right? That card is super great. I probably would have gotten one if it have more ram honestly.

the fury x is the one with the water cooler, the standard fury is just beneath the x in performance and uses traditional fan-based cooling lol

honestly it's a mostly adequate card for my needs, but the 4gb of ram really does bottleneck it sometimes

what was amd thinking

if it'd had even 6gb it'd have much greater longevity
