Need something to add to my photo editing build, the i7 7700k was delivering all the power but now need a little more for video editing, still think I might need something a littler more powerful to handle 4k?

depends what software you are using, some use the CPU and barely touch the GPU whereas other software packages see great gains with CUDA acceleration

I'm looking at building a PC for my son who starts secondary school next year, we only have Mac's at home at the momentc so thought I'd use the excuse to have a PC for his school work and double up as a gaming PC that will last my son the next 5/6 years. Only interested in acheiving 1080P at hopefully 60fps with most settings on max for the current crop of games available now. Thinking of a midrange i5, 16GB memory etc. etc. Don't want to spend silly money on a graphics card, would this fit the bill or do I need to go up a tier?

for 1080p gaming maxed out, as a bare minimum you're probably better off looking at a gtx 970 or 1060, anything above that is a bonus.

"gaming PC that will last my son the next 5/6 years." = up a level. I have picked up really cheap PCs via Amazon Warehouse when they have the 20% off deals i.e. last year an i7 4970, SSD etc for £380 and this year another i7 4970 (no SSD this time) but in the end paid £255 ! Cheaper by far than building myself.

I'd echo what others have said. You're on the right track with the (I assume coffee lake) i5, but get something like a GTX 1070 and a nice SSD. Your son is going to be one very lucky boy with that set up!

I bought a 980ti not long ago for about 275,bit more expensive but future proof for 1080p

Depends what you're playing at 1080p.

PUBG maxed will run like crap on those cards.

yeah that's true, that's why i said as a bare minimum..... generally those two will run the majority of games at a decent rate.
even 1080's don't run PUBG fully maxed out (4K) at over 60fps, but theres always gonna be a few gpu hungry games.

Currently, a GTX 1060 or RX 580 will handle 1080p on the highest settings at 60fps (of course unoptimized games such as PUBG have a slightly different story), though for the next 5 or 6 years, you'd need something better. Still I would recommend getting a 1060 or equivalent and upgrading the graphics card later on if it does not handle future games well enough. A 1050 Ti can handle high settings typically, sometimes ultra, but still, getting a card that just about does it now and upgrading later on is the best option imo.

I'd wait for the GTX 1070 Ti to come to see the impact on GTX 1070 prices before I bought a GTX 1060.

Why the need for ridiculous comments?
paulj48 was looking at a 1050Ti, and the next half decent,step up for what he required were the 2 cards i mentioned..... not overpriced at all when you compare them to the current gen, and a much better performance jump from the 1050

Obviously if within budget then go for 1070 /1080/ or TITAN X
But those would be overkill for what he was asking.
Edited by: "JB74" 24th Oct

think of it this way, stepping up from a 1060 to a 1070 will cost about 60% extra (unless you get a great deal on a 1070 which is always possible).

it might be best to spend less now and buy a new GPU in a few years. you can recoup some money selling the current GPU, and you get the most modern architecture for a good few years.

worth thinking about.

I have a radeon r9 290 at the moment and am playing PUBG mainly, my FPS is so poor (I know the game is really hardware intensive) I am assuming, this is a side step from a r9 290 would anyone agree?

Who died and made you lord of the GPU comparison site?
anyone with a bit of savvy will have enough intelligence to compare components with a variation of sites, be it GPU BOSS, user benchmark, game debate etc etc..... there's enough out there, it's a matter of personal choice!

and yes, The 290 is obviously better than the 1050ti

Because those comparison sites don't even use proper data, of hardly any use to anyone.

Where as userbenchmark takes raw data. Therefore a proper comparison.

.... and all ending up with the same end result, which is undeniably the whole point of GPU comparison websites.
Why limit yourself to just one, but yes, i'm in total agreement that userbenchmark is more finely tuned, and probably one of the best out there.

do wht adamspence said ..
1 your sone might want a console ..
2 gfx cards are well overpriced and will settle down next year+
3 It gives him something to work for when he wants to upgrade. savings from the car wasshing/paper round.
4 when the upgrade does happen he will have more modern hardwre, suited to the joyless VR world we will be living in.

This is perhaps less true than it once was. I bought an 2500K in early 2012 and I'm still not feeling any particular need to upgrade. My GTX 670 is now four years old, and I won't be replacing that until graphics cards get anywhere near sensible prices again!

I'm also building a PC, going to do a ryzen 1200 build, 8gb ram and a r9 290, it should play all the current games, and upgrade the graphics card once the prices improve,

could be, I have an oldish i5, I mean the game is personally playable and fine. But fps drops to 30 sometimes in some cities/battles which is not really competative
