    What's the sweetest spot for gaming the 4 6, 8, 12 cores? or 16 cores??

    I think 4 to 8 will be the norm for the next few years. 4 will be lowest common. 8 will be the new standard, PS5 and XboxXXX are both 8s. Maybe 12 to 16 will target enthusiasts.

    My freind jsut gave me a ROG Strix Radeon RX 580 TOP edition 8GB GDDR5

    BIG improvement over what you're running. Not going to compare well to todays $300ish cards, but perfectly powerful enough for most games at 1080 and medium to high settings.

    I'm leaning towards Threadripper then, especially if money isn't an issue.

    What was your least favorite graphics card?

    Bought a GeForce 7300GT because I wanted to play a game and my older Radeon didn't support that level of DirectX. Thought it would be good enough. That's when I learned about cheaping out on GPUs.
