Back in November of 2014 I put together my current AMD gaming PC; specs are below… I mostly play GTA 5 in 3840×2160 with mostly everything turned to max with extended distance scaling turned all the way down. I can post all my in game settings if anyone is interested. I am barely averaging 50 FPS and while it still looks amazing to me, I’m looking to turn up that extended distance scaling and have room to make some more tweaks. My goal is to come as close as I can to maxing out those settings so I can get a smooth 60fps in 4k. I have a budget of $700. Please keep in mind I am within an average of 10 FPS of achieving that goal. *My first thought was to go out and buy a GTX 1080 Ti to replace my 2 GTX 970’s. Done right? *However, after further research, I found that the newer i5 and i7’s where averaging almost 20 FPS with my same graphics cards running SLI. For the same money as a GTX 1080 Ti, I could rebuild my gaming PC. All I would need is Mobo, CPU and Ram. (Please correct me if I am wrong base on my list of current parts below). FYI : I like both AMD and Intel. I thought about Ryzen, however I’m thinking about changing gears and trying to build a newer Intel machine. Unless Ryzen will give me anymore of an advantage that I’m not seeing…more detail
