    Posted: 22 Nov 2017 at 3:26pm
Hello everyone,

I have an ODE v2 level 4 from 2013 and I've been happy with it for the past few years.

I'm considering upgrading my monitor (1680x1050) and the 2x GTX 670s that are in the ODE. I mostly play Doom these days but will play other games (Wolfenstein, new Deus Ex, etc) from time to time.

Does anyone have experience upgrading a standard ODE v2 L4 to have one of the newer Nvidia cards like the 1070 or 1080Ti? I'm wondering if my CPU will bottleneck things and the 1080 would be a waste of money?

Any info with framerates, resolutions, etc. would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks,
Brian

Give us more info, what is your new native resolution going to be?

It is simple to remove 2 gpus and add one.

What is your cpu?

I have an Intel Core i7 3770K 3.50 GHz (standard with the old ODE v2 L4). My gaming monitor right now is an old Samsung at 1680x1050 but I'd like to bump up to a 1440p display at least.

I'm not worried about swapping out the cards--like you said, simple to remove and add a GPU. I'm just trying to figure out if buying an expensive new card will be worth the bucks with the rest of my system.

Thanks!

The higher you go in res the less cpu comes in play, however cpu bottleneck is real, but with an 1080 i think you will be fine even with the bottleneck, what is your cpu oc speed?



I would get the monitor and do my gaming on it, if my sli 670 did not cut it then Hello evga 1080.

Thec1080 is probably like tri/quad sli 670 (assuming no scaling issues)



What games you gonna play, lets check i bet a 1070 will do great too

CPU-Z reports that my clock speed is 4.5 GHz (which is consistent with my original paperwork/email from Digital Storm).

Excellent overclock. With the 4.5 you’ll have less bottlenecking to worry about, if any noticeable. Gtx 1080 will be a worthwhile upgrade.

Thanks for the info.

As an aside, your username caught my eye and confused me for a minute. My name is Brian Prather, so I'm used to seeing "bprat" in logins and usernames!

Thanks again,
B

Another bprat.   Small world.   It’s a sign of genius.

Hi everyone. Figured that I should give you an update on things.

I ended up with an MSI GTX 1080TI GAMING X 11GB and a 1440p monitor. Doom multiplayer runs at 140+ FPS pretty consistently on Ultra settings. Doom single player is completely smooth on Ultra settings as well. I guess the graphics card + the OC CPU was more than enough :-)

Thanks again for all of the discussion and recommendations.

Nice.    

Thanks for the update.       I have a MSI 970 Gaming 4gb and love the zero rpm fan feature.    Quiet even when the fans kick on above 64c.   I have to peek underneath to see if they actually turned on.
