I'm looking to get a new GPU, My RX580 is great but getting a little long in the tooth.

Recently built a system around a processor( Ryzen 5 1600x)  that I had replaced for a friend. The CPU is not on the list of Win 11 approved but was still a good CPU. I had most of the parts. Fractal Focus G Grey Mid tower, Asrock B350 K4 fatal1ity mobo, 16gb 3200 Gskill mem, 2TB Seagate harddrive, 1Tb Crucial NVME m.2, AMD video card and a 750watt  ares semi-mod PSU . I had to buy a Thermaltake TH240 AIO ( just too much noise with stock cpu fan) , 5 antec  RGB fans to sync all the rgbs, and a Fenvi wifi AX200 card. Turned out real nice.

Last upgrade was Patriot Memory Viper Steel DDR4 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3733MHz for a total of 32GB.

I recently upgraded from an RTX 3060 to an RX 6900 XT Reference model. I used Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) during the installation process, and I haven't encountered any problems so far.

My most recent upgrade was from an i7 3770k to an AMD 7600X and it's been a huge difference!

7600X CPU, B650 Mobo, RTX 4090

I have been thinking about upgrading my 3600X to a 5900X, but the 7900X looks like it is well worth a motherboard upgrade!

I'm considering to get a CPU, which one is still to know.

It all depends on what you already have and how much your budget will allow.

My last upgrade was a Samsung SSD 990 pro. Not an expensive upgrade but still needed. Next is graphics card and motherboard!

I just upgraded to a Samsung 980 Pro NVMe SSD, and the speed is incredible! It has significantly improved my computer's overall performance, and I'm loving it.

Adept I

I just upgraded to a GeForce RTX 4080 GPU, and the gaming experience has been incredible! The ray tracing and overall performance boost are a game-changer

I'm excited to share that my next hardware upgrade is just in time for the Diwali Festival in November 2023. I'm planning to buy the RX 7600 Graphics Card, and I can't wait to experience the improved performance and visuals it will bring to my gaming and creative tasks!
