I might go back to GeForce 1060. The only issue is GSync monitors are very expensive and out of my price range. I looked at the lowest price GSync monitor on PCPP and there's no way I am purchasing that now. This being said, I want your opinion if having a 1060 with an i7 and 16GB of RAM would warrant such a high quality monitor. My fear is after finishing my build, not having things be at their full potential or a wide gap between performance, in other words bottle necking..?
I have no doubt that I will absolutely enjoy my RX480 build and monitor, it's just what I initially had in mind. Also, let me know if I understand this correctly. SLI/Crossfire is so I can have more than one GPU which means I can have more than one monitor. If that is true, I will never need SLI/Crossfire because I have no need for it. Should I change anything in my build since I will not be having more than one GPU and utilizing SLI/Crossfire?
I have also been questioning the different brands of the same GPU. like MSI 1060 vs Asus 1060 or MSI RX480 vs XFX RX480. If there one that is superior or newer than the rest? What also confuses me is the series of the GPU. It can be the same video card but a different series and when I tried googling which is superior or newer I had no luck finding information.
What do you guys think?
