*This result is based on average CPU and GPU usage from different programs and games. It changes based on operating system, background processes activity and targeted applications. This result is not universal and changes based on differences in hardware and software enviroments. Please do not use this calculator primary as decision maker than as helping tool to understand performance correlations between different components.

Your processor is too weak for this graphic card.

Random-access memory icon

RAM recommendation

Random-access memory is a form of computer data storage which stores frequently used program instructions to increase the general speed of a system.
AMD Radeon RX 590 will need at least 16GB of RAM to work well. If you are planning to work with some memory intense programs, or run multiple programs at ones, you should consider adding even more memory. Adding more RAM memory won't significally speed up you computer, find the balance between quality and quantity. Memory should be splitted in multiple sticks based on architecture of your motherboard. On the market there are multiple types of memory architectures from single-channel memory upto eight-channel memory.

Solid-state disk icon

Storage recommendation

Solid-state drives (SSDs) are expensive and hard disk drives (HDDs) are slow. Now that you can buy a hybrid of the two, there are a lot of choices with varying costs.
Case #1: Cost Is Irrelevant, I Have Small Storage Needs, and Speed Is Paramount - Buy SSD
Case #2: Cost Is Irrelevant, I Have Large Storage Needs, and Speed Is Important - Buy SSD and HDD
Case #3: I′m on a Budget, I Have Large Storage Needs, and Speed Is Irrelevant - Buy HDD
Case #4: I′m on a Budget, I Have Large Storage Needs, and Speed Is Important - Buy Hybrid
