post #4321 of 4325
If you intend on upgrading things one at a time, I'd suggest getting the 4K display first. Sure, prices could drop, but depending how often your shopping intervals are, waiting could get you a better GPU. We have a long way to go until 4k gaming is reasonably affordable. Besides, you can still play 1k or 2k games on a 4k monitor and upscale them. There are games you can play in 4k on modern hardware, though, maybe not any AAA titles with your particular GPU.

Another thing to consider - you have a 27" monitor. Though that isn't small, it isn't big either. If you intend to replace your display with one of a similar size, you might not notice the PPI difference between 2k and 4k in most cases. Unless you actually saw a 4k display for yourself in person, you could just be buying into a hype.

i can confirm 8gb ram sticks do not work frown.gif

i got a hi end 42" 1080p tv like 9 months ago, its great, out of the shop it looked better than most 4k tvs other than the nanos and oled, i want oled but they havent released a tv i like yet, slowish response times, dont think they do a 4k hdr 3d tv yet so im waiting on that, i start 2 scratch now so im ready when i see 1 smile.gif

idk, not long now then untill i drop this thread, 16gb ram is gona be a killer 4 me soon, has been a good ride, got this board 5 1/2 years ago, any board that takes this much abuse and survives is a good board

Created a account to say thanks to everyone who shared information and figured out the F7e BIOS firmware. Was able to keep this old system alive by doing a decent update on it and spent under $200 doing so.

My 890FXA-UD5 Revision 2.1 successfully updated to F7e BIOS.

Stable 4.3ghz overclock of a FX-8350. All eight cores working.

Running 2x8gb ram in DDR3_1 and DDR3_3 slots @ 1866 mhz.

I've noticed a decent improvement in all tasks and happy with performance vs. money spent. I don't do much gaming, mainly photo/video editing and the 8 cores, newer processor and additional ram is a welcomed update.
