Intel i7 4770k @ 4.2ghz
8gb ddr3 @1333mhz
ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO
Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 OC Boost
Samsung SSD 850 EVO 256gb @550 MB/s
Super Flower Leadex 80Plus Gold 650watt
Parts are between 4 and 6 years old, but it still runs more or less everything between High and Ultra @1080p.
I'm gonna target 1440p for for my next gen setup (2021/2022) and will dump everything except the power supply and case (if they are compatible)..
Kinda glad I didn't invest in a bigger SSD or more RAM back then. I would have to get new stuff either way and it would have been wasted instead of "future proof".
i7 9700, 3 ssds, 32 gb of ram(was running 16gb but went ahead and installed more), and I upgraded to a 2080ti awhile back after using a 2060 super for awhile.
But to me man....the most important thing was the monitor.
I went out and bought an expensive ass 4k/60hz monitor chasing 4K....recently got a 1440p....the asus pg279qz and my god lol...pqrdon my french but fuck 4k...1440p at a high refresh rate with everything pumped>>>>>>
I use my 4k monitor for work now, but wouldnt even consider playing a game on it compared to the 1440p high refresh rate with g sync on....
1080p tv as monitor
i've yet to hit a wall with any game and only had to keep some settings down for bad ports, i don't think i'll be upgrading any time soon as i'm very comfortable staying at 1080p and lowering some unnecessary settings to get a locked 60fps
I'm not sure if I want to do anymore PC upgrade. The last upgrade I did was buying a used GTX1060, and I feel its adequate enough to run games that I have on Steam. I spent so much time playing on my PS4 I barely feel the need to do massive upgrade, and may end up just saving up for PS5.
