That's a bit of a shame, I just started not so long ago.Gordon_4 said:Just the regular 4790. Overclocking was one of the few frontiers I was never comfortable exploring with my hardware.Jeroenr said:The GTX 1070ti is also something to consider.
The entry model price lays fairly in the middle of a 1070 and a 1080.
But the performance leans considerably towards the gtx 1080.
And with OC software like MSI Afterburner can easily match it, without any real heat/noise impact.
Is it a 4790 or a 4790K?Gordon_4 said:I think I?m upgrading, according to that graph.
EDIT: Yep, by replacing the R9-290X I have with a GTX1070 I am going up at least two tiers.
I suppose the only thing holding me back is my CPU since its a Haswell i7-4790. Solid but I'm a few generations behind now. I think.
Running a 4770K myself and bumped it up to 4GHz, so i imagine with the higher stock clock of a 4790K you can easily surpass that.
All you need is a good cooler (air or AIO) and a good tutorial.
But even at stock my 4770K did alright, so i suspect your 4790 does as well.
For gaming at least.
