Looking to upgrade the old beast to something that might run Starfield at a decent FPS and want to know whether its worth the money for the changes rather than starting on a full rebuild. I appreciate some of this h/w is quite old now but still has a bit of life. Current Specs:
Mobo: Asus ROG Maximus Vii Formula Intel i7-4790K NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SSD - KINGSTON 120GB HD - WDC 1TB RAM - CORSAIR VENGENCE PRO DDR3 32GB Win 10 Pro - 22H2
Based on the min/recc Starfield specs looks like I need a new gfx card and SSD as min. Looking at a used RTX 2080 Ti as best band for buck and cheap SSD.
From what I can tell the 4790k is the best cpu for this board but please let me know if others have run better and what they might cost? Starfield says min cpu i7-6800K and recommended i5-10600K but the 4790k still benches quite well against these. I figure its more intensive on the GPU demand. Can anyone else confirm/advise?
