9900k / 2080 TI seems a bit choppy
My old 4790k / Asus Maximus Hero rig finally bit the dust so I decided to upgrade. I'm still using my same EVGA P1000 P2 Power Supply. Here's what I went with:
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XC HYBRID
Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master
Samsung M.2 970 Pro 1tb
Samsung M.2 970 Pro 512gb
G.SKILL TridentZ 3600MHZ CL15
In general everything seems fine but there's some quirks here and there. The old PC seemed maybe a tad bit less choppy in windows, you know that random mouse or window freeze that happens from time to time. And even though I'm getting really great frames in something like Battlefield 5 on a 64 man servers, it's still not completely smooth and it does skip frames (I have the PG279Q Gsync Monitor). I did also get one random crash while restarting with a bootable Windows 10 USB connected.
Another thing I notice, it takes about 12 seconds or so to boot into windows. There's videos out there of people with much cheaper systems but with my same NVMe SSD and booting seemingly instantly (my fast boot is enabled). The behavior is the same on both of my Samsung NVMe drives as well. I've made sure windows is optimized, unnecessary features turned off, ect. All my testing is being done with a fresh install.
The 2080 Ti is actually not recognized when I try to install the NVIDIA driver, I have to install using the update program in Geforce Experience. Not sure if that's relevant to all this, figured it's worth a mention. Disabling / Enabling XMP on the memory makes no difference either. I guess I'm just paranoid, not wanting to spend all this money on something that might not be working 100%. Or maybe my expectations for how smooth it should be are a bit too high? Any help on the matter is much appreciated, as I've been doing the process of elimination thing for the last 3 days with the same results.
