what is the best gpu and cpu out right now?
ok so im a pc noob and i wanted to know the best cpu and gpu combo doesn't matter what the price is
- Best answer
Depends on the usage.
(Prices does not include cooling. Just the GPU and CPU. Prices are in cheapest available in USD.)
(This is exuding SLI)
Un realistic, but the best:
Gaming: i7 7700k overclocked to 5.2 ghz with high end cooling + GTX Titan Xp ($1,780 or $1,530 with luck)
Multi threaded applications: Intel XEON E5-2699 v4 + GTX Titan Xp ($4,160)
Realistic (much better value):
Gaming (for 144hz refresh rate at high resolution): i7 7700k + GTX 1080ti ($996)
Multi threaded applications: Ryzen R7 1700 + GTX 1080ti (If the program actually does take advantage of all the CPU cores aswell as GPU) ($973).
