Pc update

Hello all,

So I’ve been thinking of upgrading my pc:
AMD 2700x
GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER TUF 6GB
64gb RAM
2TB nvme
Windows 11

 

But I’m not sure if I will get better performance upgrading my graphic card or the CPU.

I mainly work with 4K/6k files of a Panasonic s5ii and I use proxies in my workflow but sometimes I need to render some effects in timeline to get a smooth playback which sometimes takes some time.

What you guys recommend?

Thanks in advance!

Ideally, both. You see, you would be spending a lot of money just for a worthwhile upgrade to either the CPU or GPU, and your current motherboard might not officially support anything newer than your current CPU without updating to a newer BIOS version.

 

And because Nvidia GPU prices have fluctuated wildly in the years since you got your current GTX 1660S, expect to spend much more money than what you paid for your 1660S just to get a worthwhile upgrade in performance - and then, its performance might become bottlenecked by your current CPU.

 

Likewise, you may need to spend a lot of money for a complete CPU platform upgrade - CPU, motherboard and DDR5 RAM - just to get a worthwhile CPU performance upgrade, and then your current GPU might still bottleneck that newer CPU upgrade.

 

In other words, at this point you're stuck between a rock and a hard place.
