I summon thee, tech wizards of DLP. It is that time of the year again. I’m in the mood of upgrading my rig for the pleasure of playing the new upcoming AAA titles (looking at you Cyberpunk). That’s the goal. Playing Triple-As on 1920x1080 144hz, all on ultra for a few years to come. To that effect, here’s what I have found so far and also a few questions. Fractal Design R5 (my old case, hopefully still servicable) AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB DDR4-3200 Now for the trickier stuff. I’m not sure if I should go for an RTX 2070 Super or an RX 5700 XT. As far as I know the 2070 has raytracing while the 5700 is cheaper. Does raytracing impact the visual quality of a game by a lot? Then there is my old Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev.B: is that one still serviceable for the new CPU? And what about my old PSU (be quiet! Straight Power 10 500W CM)? 500 seems a bit on the low end but I’m rapidly approaching the borders of my computer knowledge. As for the motherboard, I’m also open for suggestions. I would like one with M2, though. In any case I would prefer to stay under or around ~1000€ on the whole (which is why I’m open for reusing old parts if at all possible). I'd be grateful for any help on offer. Due to current circumstances that would also be the first PC I'd build entirely on my own (including disassembling the old one).
