    [WTB] Video card

    I also have an ASUS Turbo GTX 1060 6GB that I put an Arctic Cooling Accelero III on. Its a huge monster, but runs very cool! I would sell it to you for well under your budget.

    Final GPU Upgrade for an i5-4690K

    Ended up getting the RX 590. Great performance so far and I can see my i5-4690k even with a good OC is the weak link. Still, they're fairly well balanced.

    Final GPU Upgrade for an i5-4690K

    1920x1200 60hz (2008 TN monitor) Well, pretty much down to flipping a coin. Either one would probably do me just fine for the next couple years.

    Final GPU Upgrade for an i5-4690K

    Well, that thought did cross my mind but I figured when/if I build a new up-to-date rig in two or three years I'd want a new GPU as well.

    Yep, Anvimar (Alliance). Also have Horde characters on Kul Tiras.

    Final GPU Upgrade for an i5-4690K

    Yeah, I thought about that. I have enough gift cards banked in Amazon I was kind of looking forward to buying new.

    Final GPU Upgrade for an i5-4690K

    I know this may seem a silly reason to toss in the consideration of the two, but the Sapphire card is so darn pretty! The blue shroud and LED fans. lol. The EVGA is kind of plain Jane. I know that its the more efficient, slightly better performing card though. World War Z does look...

    Final GPU Upgrade for an i5-4690K

    Thanks. The monitor is still fine. Its quite nice for a TN image wise (glossy screen, good color) and has a 3 ms response time (no ghosting). Edit: Also, what's all this talk of AMD drivers and "Fine Wine"? I know the two cards are pretty close with the GTX 1660 a little ahead. Will the AMD...

    Final GPU Upgrade for an i5-4690K

    Hey guys. Need a little advice here. I have an i5-4690k @ 4.7 Ghz I'd like to upgrade the GPU for. It should be the last one before an entirely new system in a couple years. I'm not a heavy gamer, so I think I should be able to get that much longer out of the PC before its retired. I don't...

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Benchmark Performance Analysis

    Mines been quite stable after the latest. It did crash once in a while before the last two updates, but they've seemed to have solved that for me.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Benchmark Performance Analysis

    I changed the PS and used an SSD with a very fresh install of Windows 10 on it with the i7-4790k/Z87 MPower Max. It matched the i5-4690k at first (72 FPS), but after I played Fallout 4 on it (which ran perfectly on Ultra - 60 FPS everywhere) the benchmark dropped again down to 50 FPS. It seems...

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Benchmark Performance Analysis

    I didn't think to turn hyperthreading off to test. Both PCs have DDR3 2400 with slightly different timings. I actually pulled the motherboard and CPU to put them in a better case with a better power supply. Once its all hooked up I'll retest it. Its Windows 10 installation is almost four years...

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Benchmark Performance Analysis

    This game is hella weird. My i5-4690k @ 4.7 Ghz on an ASUS Z97 board with the GTX 1070 Ti now gets 72 FPS on the Very High preset. My i7-4790k on an MSI Z97 board with the same GPU gets 49 FPS!!!. When I run Time Spy on them the i7-4790k machine of course scores higher (about 800 points higher...

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Benchmark Performance Analysis

    Wow, I'm shocked that overclocked i5-4690k with an EVGA GTX 1070 Ti FTW2 did that well by comparison with your much stronger CPU and GPU. I'm almost afraid to tinker with the settings! lol I also have an i7-4790k @ 4.6 Ghz in another PC. Let me pop the GTX 1070 Ti in it and run the benchmark...

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Benchmark Performance Analysis

    I just got it as well. With the benchmark on "Very High" my i5-4690k @ 4.7 Ghz with a GTX 1070 Ti (stock) on a 1920x1200 monitor got 69 FPS with a minimum of 40 FPS. I'm quite pleased with the performance on such an old CPU (albeit with a decent overclock). On "High" I got 78 FPS. I only have...
