Edited: I was wondering if my current PC’s motherboard which is almost 6 years old at this stage would cause a performance deficit with a Graphics card with a PCI-E 3.0 interface
Its a question i google from time to time and haven’t really found any definitive answer.
This video on youtube from vmreviews seems to suggest that it doesn’t really matter and that the difference is minimal at best. From reading the comments people say its like fps improvement.
Motherboard upgrade: The problem lies in upgrading an entire motherboard for just PCIE 3, it doesn’t make sence. Its difficult to know but the above video seems to show that there’s no real benefit.
Motherboard ,CPU and Ram Upgrade: This would of course bring a better results but its almost impossible to guess how much benefit it would yield. I would guess a 20% increase in overall performance would be possible? Not something possible and still way too expensive to do.
5 Years on and still going: My current PC setup has been going for almost 6 years, which to be honest is almost incredable. the only upgrade ive made in the time was to switch out the CPU from an AMD FX 4350 (Quadcore) to an AMD FX 8350 (Octocore) and ive no complaints in performance regarding most current PC titles. This is the longest peroid of time where ive not upgraded my PC.
Im not sure what it says about the state of the PC hardware market where i feel games are being held back by the consoles.

No mans sky rolled out a new massive update almost two years since the launched a few weeks ago.
When it was first launched back in 2016 the game was an interesting mildly fun yet empty experience. I let myself get sucked into the hype and found it quickly got boring.
Fast forward to the “NEXT Update” in july this year which added a host of new features to the game.
Whats new and why its better?
Same old problems remain
Same issues since i last played it in 2016, performance on PC is very unstable. There seems to be no way to improve it fully.
interface menu system:
No mans Sky on PC must have one of the worst interface menu systems ive ever seen. Now i understand why the menu system is the way it is as the game is also running on the PS4 which itself in an impressive feet but theres is no excuse for the menu system navigation on PC and Two years later! Its awfull
