    no. I own a 4090 and the best PC game of 2023 was Zelda on a Switch emulator or a troony RPG sex simulator.

    Yes, PC gaming is worth it. What is not worth it is to buy a high end gpu anymore. Just buy the mid-range ones, they're powerful enough for most games

    ten games on a Playstation 5 = $700
    ten games on a PC = $0

    PC has a massive advantage over consoles, all games are free. you buy your hardware and you're done.

    the 4090 was absolutely worth it, on release at msrp(if you got lucky). i got mine about a year ago for $1600 and it's great. but i'm at 1440p and i limit FPS to 150 so it never runs above 60% load or 60-65°C with 250-300w. considering those limitations it's going to deliver that performance for another 3-4 years at which point my 13700k will need to be replaced as well so i can just fully rebuild.

      and why staying at 1440p with a 4K GPU ??
      also if you're scared of the electricity bill then undervolt it slightly, there's tons of guide for that out there, don't intentionally limit it the way you do lol.

        >and why staying at 1440p with a 4K GPU ??
        Couple reasons. One is my 27" monitor is already bit large but still fine so a 32" 4k screen would be uncomfortable for me, two is that i really love the 144fps sweet spot, it's exactly where i want my vidya to be. I limit it to 150 because i'm autistic like that. Going above that to, say, 200fps - i can barely tell the difference, so absolutely not worth it. Third is, when i was looking at GPUs that did fulfill my requirements(solid 150 fps at 1440p with tweaked ultra settings in any game no matter how poorly optimized) i was already in the 4080-tier price segment, then i came across a 4090 at MSRP and just bought it.

          fair enough and good reason.
          although i think you wouldn't dislike the 32" size, i also went from 27" to 34" (ultrawide and curved), it was weird at first but i got used to it quickly and now i can't imagine going lower than 34", it's very comfy and you see much more of the game, also it's curved so pretty immersive in some RPG's with open worlds (even Skyrim).

            Yeah i just think the loss in performance isn't worth it. Besides i would, probably, have to upgrade to the next xx90-tier card to keep that level of fidelity and performance.

            what about 2K ultrawide (34") ?
            a 3070 can do it without problems so i'm sure a 4090 would be able to reach your sweet spot for many years to come.

            With my 27" the screen takes up pretty much the whole center of my field of view, if it was any larger i would have to, at least, look around to focus on smaller objects in my peripheral. So any HUD elements in the corners would always be out of my focus. It's just convenience. But i noticed something weird using a curved monitor. My vision would adapt pretty quickly to the curvature but when i looked away from the monitor or i would get up and do something else it would still be a little warped. Like putting on someone elses glasses. No idea what kind of monitor or angle it was but it really put me off curved screens.

    4080 and 4090's are 4K GPU's (real 4K mind you, not the fraud on console), most players play on 1080p currently and a 4060 is sufficient for this, slowly players are moving to 2K where a 4070 is good enough (around 600 euros or a bit less sometimes), the XX70 are also good enough for playing most games in 2K ultrawide too (even a 3070, i know coz i own one) but you'll start having trouble with raytracing heavy games (like The Witcher 3 with ultra + raytracing + Nvidia hairworks on on DX12).

    so as you can see it depends of the resolution you're at, the CPU isn't as important as people think (except if they're working on their computer and REQUIRE that much power from a CPU).
    i have a 2K ultrawide monitor + RTX 3070 + I5 13600k and the CPU never goes above 50% use in any games so you don't need a 7800X3D or expensive CPU's because games will never use them fully, and they'll never truly use 8 cores to begin with.

    1080p =XX60
    2K = XX70
    2K ultrawide (34") = XX70 or 4070 Ti Super if more budget
    4K = 4080 but rather a 4090 because you're already spending a monthly salary on a GPU so why not save a bit and take the best.

      wrong, if you want 240FPS and higher then CPU is critical to hit these figures. nobody gaming at 1080p wants 60 FPS

        if you game at 1080p then you're on a budget, so it's unlikely you have a monitor higher than 60Hz or at most 144hz.
        better buy a 2K 144hz monitor + GPU instead of staying at 1080p for a meme FPS number that you won't likely notice on your screen.

          you have no idea what you're talking about, serious competitive gamers with high end PCs game at 1080p get to minimum latency and highest frame rates possible.

            yeah but they are a minority, go watch the steam hardware surveys, people are slowly moving on from 1080p so these people want visual quality over everything else.
            a good 1080p 240Hz is almost the price of a good 2K 144Hz, makes no sense to buy this if you're not a competitive player (99.99% of people).

            also most 4090 owners don't seem to be gamers because the GPU is barely represented in steam stats.

            according to the hw survey the 4090 sits at 0.96% which is roughly 1.3 million. that's a lot of people buying 4090s. especially considering the top dog sits at ~6 million but costs less than a third.

            moronic schizophrenics run at 4:3 resolutions, stretched to widescreen, on minimal settings because they think it helps them do better when in reality they're just moronic and needed physics disabled in CS:GO because a barrel being movable was something they couldn't adapt to. Also nobody cares about them or you.

    Unless you want the absolute top of the line graphcis in 4k it's absolutely moronic to pay that much for a GPU.

    I went from a 3080 to 4090, got double the performance.
    I'll upgrade to a 5090 if I can get at least 35%+ the performance.

      Pure speculation here but i highly doubt we're going to see more than a 20% performance boost. Maybe 30 or 38 gigs of vram, it might get some exclusive proprietary feature but the raw performance will probably be around those 20%.

    very controversial opinion here:
    you don't really need a 7800X3D and a 4090 to play games.

    you can also gayman with a 10400k and a 6800XT

      the only upgrade i'd do to mine is the GPU but they are expensive nowadays.
      i'm waiting for better raytracing cards because it's great in games where they implement it right.

    its worth it getting an overpriced pc

    4090 maybe not for normal users
    4070 super is enough
    if you want more cheaper even a 6800XT will do fine for gaming
