What I am doing is OK? 4790k/2080

Hello guys again,

In the previous post, I was confused wether the 1050 ti in this system is worth and a good card for the build, but I am really not satisfied for my choice overall.

So just to put my pc specs:

***********************************************
-R7 2700x
-Asus B450 f-gaming
-Corsair C16 16gb (8x2) RGP Pro
-M.2 970 Evo 500gb SSD
-3tb Seagate HDD
-NZXT H500
-Zotac Gtx 1050 ti
-Hp 1080p 60fps Monitor
***********************************************

So i built this system for a family member and he ONLY focuses on Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

So I got all good specs but got a 1050 ti bcs I thought it is enough for his uses.

it really is, but at its price and being outdated and outperformed by many cards, including the RX 570, which I think I made a bad choice not choosing it if I want to go this path.

Although he is not going to game on it at all, at least I want to get something worth it and logical for the price taking into consideration the money I spent on the system.

So I just want to end this thinking once and for all, and take your advice on the next step to do.

So the first step I want to do is return the 1050 ti and get a full refund, which is possible.

I have "My" own old main rig i got mainly for gaming at the time and still use it browsing with occasional gaming, which is:

***********************************************
-i7 4790k
-MSI Z97 G45 Gaming motherboard
-Cooler master hyper 212 evo
-16gb (8x2) DDR 3 Ram (cant remember the speed, but I dont think it makes a huge difference)
-MSI Gtx 970 twin frozr
-crucial ssd 240gb
-3tb WD green
-NZXT Phantom Full Tower
-samsung 1080p 60fps monitor
***********************************************

It is a pretty beefy system that can be modified anytime, and it got me thinking why not now? this is the best opportunity to upgrade (with the Ryzen system) with minimal losses

So the next step i want to do is to put the MSI GTX 970 from my intel system into the ryzen system rather than selling it for cheap (and better than 1050 ti by light years) bcs I am not using it for gaming much and got bored from the resolution 1080p.

now like this I think I am finished with the ryzen system, whenever light gaming is needed in the future, it is ready with no money or upgrades loss.

This gives my intel system big headroom to upgrade if possible.

I have no experience what to do with an old system to upgrade it, but I was thinking to get a Noctua NHD15 (I hate AIO + D15 is a king compared to them), and OC the cpu to the maximum it could, and then get a possibly RTX 2080 if it doesnt bottle necks and get a 2k 144hz monitor.

By this (theoretically if possible) I upgraded the ryzen system to a gaming + editing system with no money lost AND had a chance to upgrade my old useless browsing intel build from 1080p to a 2k gaming system with relatively paying very few bucks compared to building a new 2k expensive system.

So, do you recommend me to do that?

Is it the right approach for my situation?

Feel free to add any suggestions.

Oh so you are saying a 2060 is a better choice than the 2080 in 2k? but wont it have a reduced frames(like 60) on 2k compared to 2080(like 100+)?

Get the best card you can afford. If you can afford a 2080, get a 2080, but you can go cheaper.

You can get well over 60fps with a 1080, usually I'm getting 80-120fps in demanding games (but I'm not running 8xMSAA on my shadows either), just get an really good freesync panel with a 2060 or 1080 and up.
Speed of ram can make a huge difference. I just went from a 4690k with 1333mhz ram to a 4790k with 2400mhz ram and the difference can be massive. I wouldn't recommend less than 1866.

I waited a long time and have the money to get a 2080 and it is worth upgrading to any card to me 2080 or below. I just dont want to overspend on something. Thats why I wanted to know the most (logical) and not the (best) to get compared to the price I am paying for a 1440p resolution. So is the 2060 enough for a 2k resolution 100+ fps for 2-3 years?
