I updated my question/post on AC Valhalla page for any users running AMD FX chipsets. I used the Valhalla in-game benchmark tool on 3 GFX modes all the while capturing using OBS at 1080p. I can post up the video if anyone is interested.

Still using the FX CPU? Damn bro They're bad. But you can still run the game.

Yep! Running just the game I can use the stock 1080p on the High gfx preset. If I want to capture or stream the game I'm finding I have to drop down to 720p both in OBS and the game if I don't want OBS to stutter.

oof I hope you're looking for an upgrade to better complement the RX 580

I am... but don't have $500-600 required to get a new mobo cpu and ram right now. I'm thinking the Asus TUF 570, ryz5 5600x, and 32gb @3600+ ram

With my current guts it supported the newer gpu which is why it's in there right now... building new over time lol. After the next wave I'll be saving up for the rx 6800/X

There's no need for 32gb of RAM. Plus, the B550 chipset exists.

I have 16GB now just wasn't sure if now would be the time to up it... as far as x570 i thought they support the new 5000 cpu... does b550 too?

It's been way too long since my last full build I feel like I'm a little lost now a days and maybe I'm over buying from paranoia of already being behind (Bates 4000 comes to mind lol)

Honestly, you'll be just fine getting a Ryzen 7 3700X. You won't be left behind, and with lower latency memory, it'll perform really well. With that, you can afford a good X570 motherboard. Look up some things at PCPartPicker. That website can give you a good idea.

I really appreciate all the info and your time. Hopefully I'll get some things ordered soon and have a new PC by xmas
