Ryzen 5 3600 with 7800 XT


I'm looking to move away from my GTX 1080 and I'm considering buying the 7800 XT. I have a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU. Will I bottleneck at 1440p 144hz? How much performance increase can I expect?

    A 7800XT is a strong card and will last as long as the 1080 has. The 3600 is fairly stronger than the 1080 so you're just going to flip side of that now. "Bottleneck" is going to vary case by case. If you're worried about it, any motherboard that takes a 3600 should take a 5000 series like a 5600, so you can get a new CPU to match at some point.
