There's this general misconception that some brands of RAM are inherently better than other brands of RAM at the same speed and timings. That is not true.

the rx 580 sits between a 1060 and a 1070

rx 580 = 1060 6gb. 1070 is far ahead of both of them

Massive improvement over the other build guides , but I just want to point out something: there's only a few games currently that uses more than 4GB of VRAM, and if it's safe to assume that games will use more VRAM in the future, it's also safe to assume that games will become more demanding in the future. All you have to do is lower the textures, and textures on high won't make a big difference to a game that will run on a lower graphical quality anyway (due to them becoming more demanding).

ehh, all hard drives are basically the same. failure rates comes down to just dumb luck rather than build quality / whatever

edit: nvm what i said, WD caviar blue isn't ancient, it just gets updated a lot and keeps the same brand name

pretty trash build tbh

-way, way, way overkill cpu for gpu, 580 will bottleneck 8600k and that's not a good thing since the money put towards 8600k could have been money saved and put towards a better gpu like the vega 56

-if you're getting the 8600k, h7 is a cooler too light for it, you will want a more heavy duty cooler like the scythe mugen 5 rev.b, thermalright macho rev.b, cryorig h5 ultimate/universal, among other mid-priced coolers.

-FTW has better VRMs than the AORUS, gigabyte AORUS motherboards are generally overpriced anyways

-overpriced psu, TXM is just a notch above CXM, something like be quiet! pure power 10, corsair RMX, and bitfenix whisper m would be better

-OEM windows 10, that will be strapped to the motherboard unlike the full version.

By your logic a 4k monitor must be greater than 27". So you mean like 40"? I mean scaling wise... And no one wants that on a small desk.

4k monitors are dumb for that exact reason

On desks no one wants massive TV size monitors

people who game on 4k don't have their TV on the table

you wouldn't play 4k on a monitor because it's "too" fine, i.e. you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between 4k and 1440p (or barely be able to) on a regular 27" monitor

just like how you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between 1080p and 1440p (or at least appreciate the differences of the higher resolution) on a 24" screen

It's not too far behind the GTX 1080

it costs more than the gtx 1080 so i don't get your point here

and the newer features are in my opinion, worth it. And why can't I just turn the settings down to experience ray tracing?

https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/games-support-nvidia-ray-tracing/ those are all the games that support ray tracing

also, your fps will still be trash even if you turn the settings down because ray tracing literally simulates billions of rays of "light" every second, which puts TREMENDOUS pressure on the gpu

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPombfzp7qw better overclocks.

faster than the gtx 1080 by a fair margin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXF7OMsxGkU

TLDW: rtx 2070 gets ~5-8 more frames than gtx 1080 for a higher price tag

I get to experience RTX

too bad ray tracing puts too much stress on the gpu for you to experience it, nt though

Newer architecture

doesn't mean anything

New GDDR6 memory for better overclocking

benchmarks?
