    Which is more worth: 144hz Gsync monitor with AMD Ryzen 7 2700x & Nvidia GTX 1070 8GB or 144hz FreeSync monitor with AMD Ryzen 7 2700x & AMD Vega 56 8GB?

    I'd stick with 120hz then get 1080 if not 1080ti.

    Go for a high end graphics card. Cry once.

    First of all more performance you will get from nvidia card becose amd cards are let's say slower :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Next thing is if you want 144hz display you must know that the more frame you push on your screean more hit gpu will get in the same gpu must work on game so yeah if you want to play in 144hz with good quality get 1080 as minimum,

    120hz is extremely hard to find. Most of the ones above 60hz are 144hz 160 and 240, mind explaining why do u think so?

    So in your opinion get the nvidia gtx1080ti with gsync monitor?

    Get which high end graphic card? amd high end gpu with free sync monitor or nvidia high end gpu with gsync?

    AMD currently has no GPU that can compete with 1080ti, so if you want better performance - choose Nvidia. On the other hand, FreeSync monitors are easier to find and I think cheaper (FreeSync protocol is royalt freel, if I am not mistaken), so if you want to save your money - go with AMD (Vega 64 is the strongest GPU from AMD).

    Okay thanks bro, I think I will get amd cpu and gpu since freesync 144hz monitor are easier and cheaper to find while getting the same results. I like nvidia and have better understanding on nvidia gpu but it seems if i want to get 144hz monitor without screen tearing amd is the best option in Malaysia. Need to make more research on amd now

    120hz monitors are usually way cheaper than 144hz plus there isn't that big of a difference in performance. A GTX1080ti should give you at the very least 3 years before feeling the need to upgrade.

    Yes amd free sync monitor is cheaper but since I use high end gpu and amd high end gpu cost more wattage than my core can provide I went with nvidia with their power efficiency technology and better gpu performance. I had 1080ti, but it was also too overkill for my setting and i don’t like the card brand and fans behavior so I downgrade to 2070 but better brand, cooling and fans noise. It’s also great time to sell 1080ti, since it’s wanted everywhere. For g sync monitor if you don’t mind the size there’s also 24inch budget 1440p monitor like Predator xb241yu or Dell s2417DG. If you’re looking good on market price you can get it for around €350. But yes free sync one are more friendly in term budget.

    Hi it seems like nvidia is a better option for longer term usage and able to save from the electricity bills side. Did you calculate how much difference between the electric bills for amd gpu and nvidia gpu? Mind sharing? Thanks a lot!

    Lol. The pc part sellers in my area didnt sell any 120hz either freesync or gsync. I wonder why...

    Only one 120hz monitor iknow use this is Alienware AW34 ultrawide :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. If For nviadia you get better performance card, longer term of use and great compatibility with intel cpu g-sync compare to freesync is better to hold fps the downside of this is price on amd you get lower performance if spend money to high end parts you get pretty nice fps on your display and it cheapper but for logng time the gpu will be non usable sooner then nvidia so you decide what you want. I can say you this if you want buy something fist go to youtube see movies with compare performance , price etc and go to gogle and seach for few articules on this you will have better knowlage what will be best for you and what your target in parts will be,

    The best one you can afford. I prefer the Quadro cards because they can be used for professional work too. But if you got the bread/cheese and want a high-end consumer card, spring for a Titan volta.

    Actually never care about that electric bill, we pay €50 monthly but seems always back maybe around €45, my wife is YouTube..heavywatch...er;) on her MacBook and my core v2 literally always on when I’m at home since it power my Blade and stealth and also use it as desk chroma decoration together with firefly and BWX Te on idle.
    There’s already rtx Titan, I’d go with that and an x27 predator...if I’ve money trees :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Good point. I don't know much about the new RTX series cards. Didn't even cross my mind. Heck, price -wise the Titan Xp will be less than half the price of a volta anyway. It's a tough choice, especially since $$ is always an issue.

    Joikansai Well-Known Member VANGUARD

    Yes performance per fps Titan xp still wins. Titan rtx cost $2,5K and on gaming it’s the most powerful card atm....gaming for king oils sons.

    I think I won't go for Titan for now. My routine would be teaching during daytime, gaming (hope to get best experience with best value) during nightime and evening and some coding (cpython using microsoft visual studio) at least 2 hours per week. Many youtubers recommend amd for workplace so i picked amd 2700x as the price is still acceptable compare to intel i78700k which renders programs especially video editing slower and the problem comes up where I dont want screen tearing like my current laptop Lenovo Y520 i57300hq gtx1050 2gb 60hz ips screen when playing games like ac unity (my favourite franchise game) and csgo. I have a bad experience with laptop because thermal throttling occurs unlike desktop (i dont experience it even with my old desktop which I am planning to replace with a new one, felt scammed by pc shops as the ones they built are not up to the value compared to the ones we built on our own but that was when i am young and have not enough knowledge on computers). To sum up in short, I need a good high performance gpu with best value that supports 1080p gaming (as i am not going to go for 4k for now and maybe not int the future until the price go more buyer friendly) and a monitor with no screen tearing 144hz preferably

    When it comes to 4K gaming, I must say that I am disappointed with AMD.
    Recently I bought 4K monitor which has FreeSync, so I wanted to play my favorite game (Witcher 3) in 4K resolution. After searching over internet and viewing many different benchmarks, I concluded that AMD sucks big time with 4K gaming. For example, Witcher 3 (game that is old 3.5 years now) achieves an average of 43 FPS on AMD's best GPU (Vega 64). And you can't go better than this GPU in AMD's family, so this is the most AMD can offer.
    On the other side, Nvidia offers an average of over 60 FPS in Witcher 3 (with 1080ti), which is something I would like to have with AMD's GPU.

    So, if you do want go for 4K gaming in the near future, have this in mind.

    AMD Vega 64 has vary performance depends on the title apparently, some may close or better than 1080ti some is around 1080 or worse. Witcher 3 on my rtx1080;) aka the 2070 in 4K I get also around same 40ish FPS, though it’s still better than console, it’s 4K 30fps there right?
