    Just upgraded my GFX card at the weekend to a 1080ti, I am massively surprised by how much more powerful the card is compared to the 1070.

    I know in benchmarks it is stated they are 80% more powerful but actually being able to game in 4K is incredible.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider looks stunning in 4K with everything maxed out.

    How much did that set you back?

    Did you game in 4K on your 1070 at all? I'm still gaming on my 1070 at the minute at 4K and i agree games look stunning.

    Obviously some demanding settings like shadows have to be turned down to medium and i'm getting 40-50 FPS with everything at Ultra but i'm not really fussed too much about the FPS as im used to 30 FPS on consoles lol

    Never really gamed at 4K on the 1070, it couldn't really handle it (mostly played at 1440, with the settings on HIGH/ULTRA)- FIFA and F1 were pretty much the only games that worked well on 4K @60FPS.
    Running games in 4K looked very nice, but it was like playing on a PS4 (Could notice the frame drops quite obviously)

    I have played a few more titles in 4K on the 1080ti, Tomb Raider looks stunning and so does PUBG.
    The frame rate isn't completely amazing, but the 1080ti can do 45-50FPS in PUBG (4K Ultra) and Tomb Raider is around 55-60FPS (4K ULTRA).

    Overall I am very impressed with the 1080ti, however unless you own a 4K monitor there is very little point in owning one.
    If you had a 1440 monitor then you would struggle to tell any difference between a 1070 and 1080Ti, as the 1070 will run pretty much every game in 1440 ULTRA settings @60FPS+

    I’m playing on a 4K HDR OLED and 4K makes a hell of a difference on my 55” screen.

    80% better performance is what I like to hear but getting a TI would cost a pretty penny so as much as I’d like that increase I think I’ll have to stick with the 1070 for a bit.

    Oh yeah try out Forza 7 and Assassins Creed in 4K if you have them they look stunning as well.

    The 1080ti produces double the frames in 4K compared to the 1070 in the games I have played and tested.

    But yeah the price difference is incredibly hard to justify, I got mine pretty cheap as it was £580 on Amazon and when it arrived it was clearly a customer return as had the other guys address on it when it arrived, so I contacted them and said I don't want a customer return whether it has been opened or not, so they offered to knock off an additional 20% off the price of the card making it £465 or return it for another one. But since the seals were still intact I took the 20% off.

    But the issue is the 1070 has dropped considerably in price in the last 10 days making them worth only £200-£230 instead of the £280-£300 they were worth when I decided to upgrade.
    I am really struggling to get rid of my 1070 at the moment, it has failed to sell on eBay the last 2 weeks. (But I was starting the auction at £250).
    I have now lowered it to £220, so hopefully will sell this time.

    On the games, Forza should comfortably run 4K @60FPS+ on a 1070, but very surprised Assassins Creed is playable 4K on a 1070, without it being played on LOW/MEDIUM settings.
    I know on ULTRA settings in Tomb Raider the 1070 only managed 28-32FPS.

    You got yourself a very good deal then with the extra 20% off. I didn't realise the price had dropped on the 1070 but mine only cost me £115 cash on top of the £150 I got for my 970 so it's not too bad really.

    Depends what you define as playable, I'm happy with 40 FPS but I expect the majority arent lol. On Assasins Creed apart from AA being on medium (I'm not even sure I need that on at 4k), shadows on high and fog on medium everything else is on the max and I get 40 FPS.

    Hopefully, I'll get another year out of this PC then I'll have to have a complete revamp as everything else is ageing haha.

    Planning to upgrade my old but well loved AMD FX 8350 PC to become a shiny new beast of a AMD Ryzen 2700x build but would like some advice primarily on which motherboard to go for, this is what's set so far:

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700X (decided to spend some more over the normal 2700 as been advised OC'ing the 2700 can be a bit tricky?)
    RAM: 16gb or 32gb? Presumably fastest clock speeds I can afford is the only clincher?
    GPU: AMD RX580 8gb (this one I already have from my current build)
    Motherboard: This one I'm most lost on?

    In terms of RAM it seems like games are slowly starting to use a lot more available RAM so thinking if I can find a good price then it could be worth going for 32gb instead of the usual 16gb to future proof? Or would that be a waste of money at this point and I should just go for the fastest 16gb the chosen Motherboard supports?

    Motherboard: obviously here I can spend anything from $100 to $500 (well I'm buying in Euros but anyways!), but which do I go for? I'll want stability, I'll want to optimise the parts I have as best as possible but I have no real brand loyalty, are there any features I should be looking for in choosing my motherboard? Pre-Black Friday I'm probably looking at maximum $300-$350 price range. The only thing that would help me make a final choice is warranty length, ideally something along the lines of 3 years if possible.

    All feedback gratefully appreciated!

    I always buy Asus boards, they really do last and rarely fail.

    I have had issues in the past with MSI and massively with Gigabyte.

    For Intel I always buy the ASUS higher end boards without going ROG, but not aimed at gaming - PRIME boards on Intel.
    As they normally have the same features as the ROG boards, just don't have the gaming colours, but actual components and power phasing and everything is identical, which makes them great overclockers.

    If I was buying AMD right now I would be buying this:-
    https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/PRIME-X470-PRO/
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-X470-...UTF8&qid=1540316776&sr=8-2&keywords=asus+x470

    Also note I try never to buy cheap on motherboards, as the motherboard is the heart of the PC and need to be reliable and well made with decent resisters and components.

    Yes Asus is one I had that failed but had a 3 year warranty so I got 70% value back from the retailer. MSI also failed but was 12 month warranty so I was shit out of luck there! Definitely happy to get an Asus again, I'll check those thanks.
