How many of you are still using relatively old hardware and it meets most of your needs?

I'm still running a Sandy Bridge i7 2600k @4.5Ghz
16GB RAM (I borrowed the RAM to test another rig so it's got 4GB at the moment)
GTX 980

Other than the Rise of the Tomb Raider on max settings, everything else runs flawlessly on my system.

My question is, is there any real gain from upgrading to Skylake/Haswell/Zen?
What do you guys with older processors think about your performance?

>> No.56062497

Still running an i7 920. It meets all my needs along with my r9 nano.

>> No.56062548

My main battlestation is an AMD Athlon 5350. I'm running Gentoo with some light weight stuff and it's pretty comfy.
Though I gotta say, I don't really have the time anymore to play anything, so my needs are quite small.

Still running an i5 2500k here. Along with my GTX 670 it plays everything I want.

~65fps average in the benchmark on the highest preset in DX12 with SMAA. I know you can crank things up even further manually through options they patched in, but obviously it won't handle much more.

2500k. I haven't even overclocked it, what the fuck. Easily could because they pretty much sold these underclocked. 100 euroes for pretty much the exact same thing that costs 200 today. AMD, get your shit together.

I maxed every setting manually and my 980 got high frames but it kept dipping to low fps every few seconds so it was like it was constantly stuttering.

if you don't have at least a sandy bridge i5 2500k or greater cpu, you need to upgrade t-b-h

>> No.56063413

Sandy Bridge cpu's are not relatively old or old in any other sense. Without buying Sandy-E, Ivy-E or Hash-E chips, you lose soldered heatspreader (and thus shitload of OC potential) and gain insignificant amount of IPC. In other words, there is nothing worth upgrading to.

I've been trying to get some help with this and a few threads have been unresponsive, maye I can get some help here?

I'm getting some hand-me-down parts for free to help me with my first build; I'm attaching a screenshot of them. I know the processor is around 8 years old and I'm a bit bummed about it, but I just found out today that it's been overclocked to 4.5GHz and Speccy just simply isn't showing it. Are these good idle temperatures for a processor that's been overclocked this much?

So I'll ask this here because I don't want to shit out a new thread over it

I haven't updated my computer since I first got it in 2013. I run windows 8.1, wouldn't like windows 10, and decided to check for updates for the first time today.

Is their any updates I shouldn't install? what should I look out for? I don't want spying (yet I need programs Linux can't emulate properly).

>> No.56063535


Because we're in shock that our 2011 purchases are equally as good as anything out today.

For gaming at least, I don't know about your loser nerd stuff like packing and unpacking files for no reason, pretending to "render" things without ever pointing out what the fuck it is that you're constantly rendering. And whatever else you idiots think you need a NASA supercomputer for.

I used to use an E8400 and 4 gigs of ram on my TV PC and it worked well for 90% of what I did with it. It would even play some of the less performance heavy new games. It's suprising, but for everyday applications core 2 duo's are still fairly manageable.

I run Manjaro JWM on a 3 year old laptop that was $350 at the time. Probably worthless now. Celeron 1.5GHz dual core, 4GB ram, and a terribly slow 500gb HDD. For some reason it loves to leak memory. Running the same version of Chrome on both it and my gaming desktop. Can have 4chan and a YouTube tab open on my laptop and Chrome consumes 1.2GB memory. Can have 8 tabs open on my desktop and it's consuming 800mb.

If stock heatsink, then that's completely normal. My i5 idles around 32° and it's never been overclocked.

>> No.56063825

Thanks for this response.

People have warned me against pairing it with new cards like the 1060 as it could bottleneck, but the fact that it's already been overclocked and is running this cool (albeit at idle) is giving me hope.

Considering any hardware made after 2009 old...

I'm posting this from a 5 year old shit laptop that was shit when I bought it 5 years ago. You guys have a serious spending problem if the rig OP describes doesn't do exactly what you want. I guess if you do a ton of compiling, or really want your video games to run at absolute max settings thats cool.

I personally like turn based strategy so gaming performance isn't really an issue for me. I want dat civ6 tho.

Phenom II 425 I think it was, paired with a GT210, was doing fine until the HDD on the computer died,and I couldn't replace it cuz poorfag.

>> No.56063872

Well, I tried maxing everything for a giggle and got a 57.43fps average with minimums around 28fps. Not too bad considering the card is at stock (1000/1250).

I get the feeling OP was a shitpost.

wait for LGA 2011 v4, then get an enthusiast CPU and a 1080 Ti if it's out by then

>> No.56064009

I can't max out Rise of the Tomb Raider and GTA V stutters at max settings. I think my CPU may need an upgrade. I'll attempt taking the RAM from 16GB up to 32GB but I don't think that's the problem.

I'm considering upgrading to Skylake or Zen.

Speccy doesn't show it for me either. Download and install CPU-Z and you'll see it. Your CPU temps are fine.

The CPU is fine. RX470 sounds good.

You should be okay.

The 3GB VRAM is a limiter in some games as you have a 4K monitor.

No, my setup really struggles with Rise of Tomb Raider and GTA V on max settings at 1080p. Stutters every few seconds.

Core2Duo, 2GB RAM, ATI HD 5450

Old, but works for me. Runs Window 7 and the games I play (older ones), struggles with the likes of Empire Total War and above.

Linux: Arch with Openbox and tint2. Running quite smoothly. Can play 1080p60fps YouTube videos. Struggles with 1080p x265 video but works well with 720p x265 and 1080p(60fps) x264 video.

It does what I need it to do. It was also very cheap to build (into the hull of old school computer, second hand parts and whatnot) and I'm poor. I would love to play the newer Total War games but a new computer isn't really a high priority for me. I also have a modded Xbox 360, which satisfied my need for some of the newer games.
