AMD have just brought out a couple of new GPU chips, but they are still being sold on reference boards with dodgy single fan.

Might be a couple of moths before they get drivers sorted out properly as well.

Depends entirely on the resolution you intend to use, there isn't much out there that will not put out 1080p at a good refresh rate. On the other hand there isn't much that will put out 4K at a consistent good refresh without cutting back on options.

I did a Ryzen 3200G build for my arcade cab, it's used for emulators at 640x480 so pretty much breezes anything I chuck at it  :lol:

Native is 1920 x 1200 on my monitors, but TBH even 1080 will be good enough for me, will do a bit more research on the new AMD stuff, I've spend most of my time reading about the new Ryzens and boards at the moment, GPU is next on my list..

Edit: The 5700 does look tasty.. will wait a bit for a non blower I think..

lol, just marginal overkill when a raspberry PI would have done it  ;D

Huge fan of the PI and I have plenty of them inc the new 4, but when it comes to emulation IMO they're good, but not great.

edit- oops and crucially I forgot to point out it's used as a server also  :lol:

I'm using a GTX 970 to push 4K graphics in Guild Wars 2, when I feel well enough to play, not that often now.

Does over 30FPS until I run into a massive open world battle or zerg in World vs World play, then it tries to fry itself.

Still playable, just but nowhere near ideal.
