As i mentioned before , i have Fx-8320 paired with asus m4a97 mobo(i believe this is the one ) and asus r9 280xcould you list the full specs of your pc?
e.g motherboard ram hdd, psu
we dont want to recommend you say a RTX 2060 and then bam your psu cant handle it.
My PSU is seasonic 620U (will be newer GPU will be able to power using this ? )
And Samsung 22'' 1080p (Not the fancy 144hz ones , i believe this is 75hz )
And i have cooler master 212 evo as well.
And 8 gigs of DDR3 RAM
The price difference between 1660 Ti and 2060 is 50$ , as the 1660Ti is on higher side in my country. So i thought , it would be wise to upgrade it with 2060 (Initially i was preferring Rx 5700 , but the price difference between 2060 and 5700 is 85$ approximately)Before Ryzen came out in early 2017, the undisputed king of gaming CPU's was the i7-7700K, and no one was talking about needing more than the 4c/8t that it offered. Ryzen changed all of that. What I'm trying to point out is that planning a system for 5 years is impossible.
About the 470/480/570/580 question, They and the GTX 1060 and even the older GTX 980 perform about the same! That's why I suggested the GTX 1660 Supper, as it's performance splits that of the GTX 1070 and 1070 Ti. I just question if the GTX 2060 Super is worth $150+ more, for 1080P gaming.
Yep , Gaming is my goal .. But i do little photo editing as well using photoshop and Lightroom (the Fx-8320 handles it decently). The FPS difference between 6 cores and 8 cores seems to not much of a difference , but not sure how the future might be . So had confusions as well whether 3600 is a solid choiceIf gaming is the goal it's hard to say for certain when you put it like that (futureproofing) as things will change a lot with new consoles coming out.
As for current PC standards it looks like a zen2 8core+5700xt is the rough equivalent for those consoles (ballpark - who knows the exact power constraints and clocks, the gpu sounds like a newer design than the 5700 cards also so it might even be better).
Right now few rare hungry games aside - where 8 cores only slightly boost fps or at least affect minimums - 6c/12t is the ideal CPU, and depending on resolution the gpu could be a budget 1660 (there's like 4-5 variants im not even sure which one's the "best" atm) or a higher cost 2060s/5700/xt/2070s (1080p to 1440p). Broadly speaking i think futureproofing a system on a tight budget might be hard, so I think you just buy whats best for your budget right now, otherwise you'll end up putting off building something every year as new things that change where the goalpost sits come out all the time.
