not really, the newer the card the more likely the physical architecture and the drivers for it function in a way that is not compatible with ark, because they have not optimized it for the new methods the new card uses. optimization is basically the term for making sure your program plays nice with as many types of hardware as possible as effectively as possible.

I have one of the best new graphics cards on the market and a 2018 gaming laptop, and it runs ARK like a beast. Almost no issues at all, even at ultra high . So newer hardware not being optimized can't be a valid issue...

What's the first game you will play?

Well, that's a tricky question.

The first game I tried to play was Ark. Two attempts so far; both attempts resulted in crashes less than a minute into the environment.

Next sample was LOTRO, and it ran beautifully. Didn't stay in-game long, though -- it was getting late.

Next will be Divinity: Original Sin 2.

Powered

Nice! And the top-of-the-line 2080 Ti -- sweet!

My budget won't let me come anywhere near 2080 at this time. But since my monitor is a 23" 1080p anyway, I'm hoping to be in good shape with my 2060.

Following my card's tracking data is quite the armchair sport the past couple days. Here's a snip of the latest summary. Two-day arrival time: not bad at all for free shipping!

Nice!

As you spec the 2060 video, works nicely for the monitor you have, you made a great choice. Most of the games I play are not really optimized the card handles it well, but still get some tearing and pauses.

Play a bit of Anthem looks pretty good.

I was excited when the video card arrived. It took me a couple of weeks to put together due to my work schedule. The Corsair 1000 W power supply I had died just after a month, so I bought a 1200 W off brand for 50 less and it works just a good. Corsair will replace it.

The one thing that amazed me is how quiet it runs, my other computer sounds like, a good comparison Newest Rig sounds like an electric car and the others like a motor automobile.

I am debating either buying a game computer for my grandson or building one, thinking just buying an i5 for him. My granddaughter has my 1st rig from years ago, grandson using my old i7 laptop and both actively enjoying Minecraft.

But planning to get them into Hytale. (oops going off topic). Can't wait till you get your rig built, so cool.

It’ll be cool to see what your results show, Specs. Keep us informed, Major.

I've made my purchase! Went for a ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 2060. I hadn't heard of the brand before, but user reviews seemed almost all positive. A couple of comments about a noise the users referred to as "coil whine" (whatever that means), but most comments tout it's quiet operation. And all say their card has performed solidly in a standard 1080p to 1440p environment. My only concern is that it's a PCI-3x card, while my systems only have a PCI-2x capability. But if-and-when I upgrade to a newer Ryzen build, that shouldn't be too much of a concern. Looking forward to getting the card! Standard shipping from Newegg, so I will be drumming my fingers impatiently until it arrives. But Newegg has a good history of decent delivery times for me.
