So should I think about investing in a 2070S/2080(when it releases)? I asked another person and they mentioned me just upping my RAM to 32gb. All I'm looking for is Ultra settings @ 144hz in 1080p or Highish settings when running 2560x1440+, ill have to buy a 4k monitor rated for 144hz if I want 4k 60fps+ I'm sure.
Is there anything specific RAM usage wise that I need to look for? A couple of my processes are using about 20-30% of RAM, I'm definitely not super tech savvy and and basically running this show blind lol I know certain processes and applications have to be running for the computer to function, but I also don't know what processes are purposeless and using my RAM for no reasons. I just don't want to bug or annoy people with my green questions mostly but I KNOW I am not educated enough in this field to just click things either.
@Fusionsk8r If you have a lot of programs installed on the PC then they tend to consume your RAM usage even in the background. You can look into uninstalling some programs that you do not use to try and free up some RAM. If your RAM usage is still close to 100% then you might want to consider upgrading. About the M.2 drive, it will certainly provide a boost in overall performance. An NVMe SSD would be roughly 7 times faster than a 2.5" SSD and over 20 times faster than a standard 3.5" HDD. Now, a lot of gamers have a different set up for their drives. I would recommend a small one for the OS, like 256 GB. Then you could install a 1 TB in the 2nd slot for your games. In order to know what you should upgrade first, you need to see where your system is bottlenecking. You will have to monitor the CPU, GPU, RAM, and HDD usage while gaming. Whatever is consistently running at a high usage is what you will want to upgrade first. I simply recommend installing an NVMe SSD because it is significantly faster than both SATA SSDs and HDDs.
