Gaming, listening to music, YT.
Ive got the 4790k and was thinking of getting a 2080 or better, Does the 4790k bottleneck the 2080 at all? Also if you play Rainbow Six Siege do you think you could let me know what kind of frames your getting? Thanks, Build looks awesome!
Sorry about the late response mate, I don't really log in to pcpartpicker all that much.
i7 4790k does not bottle-neck at all - though I should point out I'm gaming on a 1440p monitor - I wouldn't really recommend gaming at 1080p if you're going for really high end parts - I did that in 2015 when I first got my pc together - that being pairing up a really high end system with a cheap monitor - don't recommend it. You'll really only find massive issues with CPU bottlenecks if you're using a dual core CPU and pair that up with a very powerful GPU. I really wouldn't be too worried about bottle-necking tbh - it's a word that's often thrown around in the pc building community, but unless you really try to purposefully bottleneck your system, bottle-necking isn't an issue.
And sorry, I don't play Rainbow Six. - you'd be getting high frame-rates though - a 2080 performs pretty much the same as a 1080 TI. A 2080 does do a lot better at real time ray-tracing then a 1080 TI, but honestly, no-one bothers with ray-tracing because it's such a massive hit to performance.
Gist is this - if you can find a cheap 2080 (new), go for it. If not and you find a 1080 TI for a fair bit cheaper than a 2080, I'd go for the 1080 TI. Only reason why I got the 2080 was because I got it pretty cheap when it came out.
Thanks, I kinda switch between cyan and purple for my colour scheme.
Fair point actually, I've uploaded a few more pics
