Their a lot of people having the same issue. AMD has no fix yet and might not ever knowing them. It makes me LOL every time I see people here saying buy one because their the best bang for the buck, that is true but worthless if you can't depend on it.

I would take the 2060 Super any day and loose 15% or so of performance and have a stable system.

Get the 1440p and keep the one you have look at my setup. Buying a 4K monitor for gaming and trying to get high FPS makes no since. If you have to turn the settings to low to get high FPS is defeats the purpose of having a 4K monitor.

That 1TB hard drive will be used and come with no warranty other than not being DOA.

Gets you a bit better board, hard drive, and upgrades to a RX 580 video card.

The power supply is better quality and 550 watts.

New releases. Looks like a bad batch so they disabled the 6 cores and 12 threads down to just 6 cores and the 3900 they lowered the clock speed.

Either. People have been saying games will start to use more than 2 cores for about 10 years and it just came true in the last few years. How games use cores depends on the game engine used.

For the future nobody has a crystal ball. I do know it would be bad for business to make a game that truly required a bunch of cores making people upgrade to be able to play the game.

The last game that comes to mind is Watch Dogs was recommending a i7 and the game came out and a fast 2 core runs it the same.

A SSD is in no way a must. You will need to overclock your CPU to the 4.6 / 4.8 area or as much as you can with your limited cooler.

Really all you need should be good for high settings, ultra wide monitor for a increased field of view. The 2080ti is just not worth the 70% price increase for a 15% performance increase.

  1. You need to format the drive and assign it a drive letter.

  2. If I was switching to a M.2 I would do a fresh install although they are migration programs.

Their never been a PC built without a bottleneck and never will be. A bottleneck is just the slowest part doing a certain task and can change to a different part using different programs or games.

Their almost no difference in in to 2 processors for gaming performance for the video cards their about a 15% difference.

So if you look at it in FPS about 0 in the processors and for the cards if you were getting 100 FPS with the 1660ti you could get 115 with the 2060 (all depending on the game of course)

The 2060 Super is not overkill for a 144hz monitor, it's also not having driver issues like the 5700 is.

You did see he is also using work programs, m.2 drive for the OS and programs, 1TB SSD for games and work space 3TB for storage. Not my fault people that don't use their PC for work think a 1TB drive is big enough. (I have 5 drives in my PC over 6TB of storage)

The motherboard will support any AM4 processors and their only going to release one more for AM4 so the upgrade argument is just dead air.

That Intel drive is not what to buy for a work and game PC it slows to a craw as it fills up.

Better overall build than yours for what he is using his PC for and right in budget.

The 2080 Super should put you way above 60. That is a very solid build.
