Full upgrade or only GPU? Bottleneck?
RE-OPENING THIS THREAD. LATEST UPDATE FROM ME IS POST #20 PAGE 2
Currently I have:
Asus P6TD Deluxe mobo
ATI Radeon HD5870
I mainly use my rig for audio work and 3D work - rendering is important (GPU rendering is what I want to do and can't right now).
I am 100% moving over to nvidia and thinking about grabbing the 1080 TI - my question is - will this cause a bottleneck on my current setup? I'm thinking about doing a full upgrade but I'm not sure.
The more VRAM I have, the better! The 2080 is too expensive right now unfortunately.
In the long-term I would like the option to get 2-4 1080s for more power so I will eventually need to do a full upgrade but for now, short-term... what's best? Is my CPU limiting me?
I would be grateful for any advice from you all here.
