    This is just a general place to converse about all things pc.

    So my general gaming pc is going to be turning 6 years come January. I really want to upgrade but i'm not sure if i should hold off until 4k 60 frames with HDR becomes sort of standard with video cards. is that going to be a long way off? How about building a pc in general, will 1500 still build a pc than can run at 4k?

    if 1500 doesn't build a pc that runs 4k that'd be crazy

      I'm wanting 4k 60 though and i feel like that's a madman's fantasy right now.

        I dunno, I kind of think 4k isn't worth it yet. the majority of games/content isn't 4k yet, so if you've got a 4k monitor and you're running something that's 1080 it'll look crappy.

        although i also definitely need some serious upgrades. CPU, Mobo, RAM probably another cooler. hell the only thing I'll keep is my graphics card and PSU

          I was actually watching a video on youtube with that "Linus" guy and it seem most gamers can tell the difference between 1080 p and a 1440 display but with a 1440 and a 4k you have to realllllyyyyy pay attention to notice the differences, and since most moderatlyy 6k displays only do up to 60 hz it can feel sluggish in faster games. Looks Like i should just hold off until the tech gets better.

              Got myself a new graphics card yesterday as the one I had was about 6 years old and struggling massively with newer games (Total war: Three Kingdoms, you cost me another £150, you cunts)

              Upgraded from the AMD Radeon HD 6670 to the Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050TI. Can't say I know a lot about the specs etc, but my games are running a lot smoother and I can actually use settings other than low, so all in all it's been a decent upgrade.

                Nice, now you can finally play all those vr H games!

                Sooo pc wise, i'm gonna wait until the ps4/ xbox56 is released. I wanna try buuilding something more future proof. right now my pc can pretty much onllyyy handle standard ps4 graphic which is fine. 4k aint a bbgggg deal for me but i want that sweettt 120 frames a sec. Ive never seen it in action.

                    I'm not sure myself, apparently 4k gaming on pc (if youre sitting infront a monitor) is worse than playing games at 1440p, at this point anywways. so until 4k is sorted out on pc games i might hold off a bit. Ray tracing looks like the next big step so i gotta make something that can atleast push a stable 30 frames.

                      Quite a few good videos basically saying why you should hold off like 5 years before investing in 4K are out there from what I've seen, from Linus Tech Tips to all kinda folk. To be honest, I'd like to build something soon which can give me some stable VR gameplay but that would be a huge money sink so it can wait, especially if VR begins to fade into obscurity which I imagine it may do.
