Question About Gaming PC Parts for 1440p

Hey guys I have a Ryzen 5 1600, oc'd to 3.75MHz, and a GTX 1060, and 16gb RAM. So I noticed how the GTX 10 series card's prices are dropping, so I decided I wanted a new one. I really want to be able to play any game at max settings at 1440p at preferably 80 FPS and no lower, obviously I will have to lower some options like Nvidia game technologies, and I know some games are not optimized well. I'm going to buy a new case for better airflow, a CPU air cooler, SSD, better PSU, and a HDD with lots of space as well. So I'm waiting for Black Friday to get a GTX 1080 which is around $400-500 average. But I have been looking at game benchmarks and I notice a GTX 1080 oc'd, a Ryzen 5 1600 oc'd, and 3200MHz 16gb RAM aren't quite enough to run games at the settings I desire at about 80 FPS, in fact for some games the FPS goes below 60.

So I have to choose between getting a new Ryzen 5 2600 CPU or a GTX 1080 Ti. Though the new Ryzen option is WAYYYY cheaper than the GTX 1080 Ti option, which the 1080 Ti is kinda too much for me to get. So will either option either be able to reach my desired frame rate anyway? And what is the better choice?

  1. Nah, 1080 should be fine for 1440p 80 fps. no need to get 2600, 1600 is more than enough to get 80 fps.

    So that system would be able to do 1440p, max settings, at 80 FPS, for any game? (assuming it's not terribly optimized) Do you know where I can find any good benchmarks to see this?

    You can see 1080ti may not get 80 if you really want ultra. I will dial down it to very high and call it a day with GTX 1080.

    Would you say it's safe to say for most well optimized games at high settings, FPS would stay at about 75 ish and never go below 60? And then at ultra/max settings FPS would never drop below 55ish? I just really want to feel good knowing that for most games I play at the settings I desire FPS wouldn't bounce from say 80 to 60 in some areas and drop so much below that 60 mark.

    It should be doing that high-very high.

    Ok I can deal with that, thanks for the help.

    One last question, how much FPS would I gain if I had my Ryzen 5 1600 t 3.8GHz, and the GTX 1080 at 2000MHz and add +700 to the memory clock? Assuming this all dosent crash and runs fine.
  8. game-dependent and don't shoot for that 700...

    I suppose only time will tell then.
