    Worth buying new GFX card, or just buy a new PC?

    My PC is a decade old, paid $2k back in 2010 though. I've upgraded the memory a few years ago, and recently to SSD.

    At this point, it struggles to playback a 4k movie. I'd also like to be able to play COD on it, but that isn't necessary.

    I'm considering buying a GTX1660 or 1070 card for it, but not sure if it's the right move.

    I am leaning this way though, the SSD was a game changer, and I've read elsewhere that the GFX will make a huge difference alone. Apparently the PCI v2 (vs v3) is not much of a bottleneck.

    Code:
    CPU:           Intel Core i7-920 (Bloomfield, D0)
                   2666 MHz (20.00x133.3) @ 1927 MHz (12.00x160.6)
    Motherboard:   Alienware 04VWF2
    Chipset:       Intel X58 (Tylersburg 36S) + ICH10R
    Memory:        12288 MBytes @ 802 MHz, 9-9-9-23
                   - 4096 MB PC12800 DDR3 SDRAM - G Skill F3-12800CL9-4GBSR
                   - 4096 MB PC12800 DDR3 SDRAM - G Skill F3-12800CL9-4GBSR
                   - 4096 MB PC12800 DDR3 SDRAM - G Skill F3-12800CL9-4GBSR
    Graphics:      ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5
    Drive:         Samsung SSD 850 PRO 1TB, 1000.2 GB, Serial ATA 6Gb/s @ 3Gb/s

    Take your ssd out and get a new one imo. Even a 2020 budget build is gunna poop on that thing at this point.

    10 years is a good life.
    Yes... come and let us make an end of it. It matters not, even cornered, to my last breath... I remain who and what I am. I will not hide, nor tremble, nor beg. Let them come and reckon with fury that is DOOM defiant.

    Agree get a new machine. Could take the SSD out and put back the original HD wipe it and install windows 10 (it should have a key from the motherboard also make sure to write down the key just in case) and then sell it for whatever you can get on craigslist/fb marketplace

    Could reuse the SSD in your new computer. Even if it comes with an SSD could install it as an extra one. Call of duty the latest one is probably like 100gb so could install it on that SSD.

    1660 is a great budget card, but if I were you I'd just try to buy a pre-built computer in the <$500 price range.

    Okay, so I bought a new monitor - 1440p 144Hz.

    When I connect via HDMI, I can only get 1080p 75Hz.
    When I connect via DisplayPort, I can get 1440p 100Hz.

    So it look like I should upgrade GFX. Not sure I'm fuked buying an entire new PC because I'll probably get the PS5.

    What GFX card should I get <$200?

    Looks like the 1660 Super isn't too far off.

    I wouldn't get anything less than a 1080 TI for COD. You arent going to get anywhere close to 144fps @ 1440p even with that and a current-gen CPU.

    So, yeah, new computer.

    So just 4k Video? I guess a 1660 would work.

    This thread might help you figure out if it's good enough.

    https://www.tenforums.com/performanc...tube-test.html

    EDIT:

    I take it all back. I didn't realize your video card was so ****ty. Any old video card that is capable of 4k output will do fine.

    So it look like I should upgrade GFX. Not sure I'm fuked buying an entire new PC because I'll probably get the PS5.

    What GFX card should I get <$200?

    Looks like the 1660 Super isn't too far off.
    Why did you buy a monitor 2-3x the cost of your graphics card budget for a 10 year old alienware tho... Like is that thing even going to hit 100fps on any modern title in 1440p?

    Because I’ll either be getting a PS5 and hooking it up OR upgrading the PC.

    Bought the GTX 1650 Super ~$200, just so I can get that 1440p @ 144Hz. lol

    I know the CPU and PCIe v2.0 16x will bottleneck it, but fuk it.

    What's the point of 144Hz when your games will run at 30FPS?

    Still nicer to have a high refresh rate for basic usage. Plus I play old games on it sometimes which will get easily enough FPS.

    PS5 and cheap card is the better option I think. I’ll play new games on PS5.

    It won't do anything close to 1440P at 144hz. You might get 60fps

    Might not get the full benefit, but what an upgrade.. lmfao

    https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compar...er/m7681vs4058

    Also OC'ed my 920 to 3.5GHz... 30% boost to reduce bottleneck slightly.

    And yes, I already get 144 FPS playing CS 1.6 and will with some other games now. Like I've already said, I'll use the PC for older games and get the benefit.

    Amd 3300x, b550 board and 16gb of ram.

    Cheapest most value bang for the buck and pairs well with the GPU.

    Installed, and worth it even for the 144Hz desktop experience itself.

    Might install COD just as an experiment, but unlikely to run well.
