What would you upgrade first? - Page 4

post #31 of 68
No need for a 1070 unless you upgrade to a monitor with 2560 x 1440 or high resolution. I agree that it is a complete waste of money and not needed in this scenario. The GTX1060 isn't even needed here. The GTX 1050 ti is plenty for 1080p and OP is using 1680 x 1050 which is below that. Yes this is OCN but lets not suggest impractical solutions here.

How in the world are you video editing at 1680x1050?

Ha! Its not fun nor the best setup. Like i said I havent been doing it very long but i've noticed its starting taking more and more of a toll on this pc. I will probably pickup 2 24" monitors here soon to better fit my needs. This thing has been built for like 2 years if not 3 so I know its fairly outdated. Thanks guys I'll start looking for a 4790k first, then a gpu, then maybe step up to faster ddr3 ram and a 16gb kit

Haswell isn't outdated at all. Intel has released one new architecture since. The i7-4790K uses the same architecture as your G3258, but with twice as many cores and four times as many threads. The tasks you listed want more cores.

I'd shop around here for a used 4770K/4790k. You'll see your rendering times greatly accelerated from the extra core and threads. If you have the money after that, a 1050/1050Ti should be the next step. I wouldn't even bother with a Ram upgrade as 1600 will do just fine for what you're doing.

Alright guys I scored some nice deals just looking around to see what I could find. Here's what I picked up

i3-6320
Gigabyte Z270P-D3
Team Group Dark DDR4 3000mhz
Samsung PM961 NvMe

Where would you go from here? Maybe a little better GFX? Maybe a better CPU?

Yeah upgrade that gpu to something like a GTX1050ti. Even a GT1030 would be a massive upgrade from a GTX460. The i3-6320 isn't the best cpu for multi-tasking. However depending on type of rending and video editing you are doing. A gpu upgrade might get you better results.

Rather than a Skylake i3, I would have gotten a Kaby Lake Pentium. Basically the same thing.

It was all picked up fairly cheap so its not permanent. Just seeing really where to go from here. It does run alot smoother since the upgrade I will say that biggrin.gif

You doubled the amount of threads. Something like that can definitely be noticed. I wonder if they will reintroduce hyper-threading to i3's in the future. It would be nice if Pentiums were 2C/4T, i3's were 4C/8T, i5's were 6C/12T, and i7's were 8C/16T. Maybe one day.
