  1. Yea thats what i'm thinking. I'm worried about the memory tho. (only because other people keep bringing it up and making a huge deal out if it. I myself don't know tbh.)
  2. I will also be getting a new PC case since the airflow in this one is bad. So i'm probably going for a "PHANTEKS Eclipse P500A" because airflow numbers etc seem very good. I'm pretty bad at building my pc, cables wise. And also i don't really know what to do with the fans. But hey i'll figure that out when i get to that point.
  3. I really want to wait, since i know how 2080 owners felt when the "super" versions came out. But since the 3090 seems to on average have between a 10-20% increase. I'm guessing the 3080ti will be 10% at max. Otherwise the 3090 would be obsolete if the TI version of the 3080 can get really close to a 3090. So if i can get a good OC going, i can probably get close to 3080TI specs with the 3080 STRIX. But we obviously don't know that yet. The games i like the most are competative FPS games. So the only reason i don't have a 4k screen is because high refresh rate, low latency 4K monitors are either not here yet. Or the ones that are, are incredibly expensive.
  4. I've already done that a few weeks back, it helped slightly for a bit. And then it went back to just space heater temps.
  5. Hello everyone, as the title says, my current GPU is dying. Artifacting, temps sometimes up to 98 degrees celcius. (Lowering graphics etc doesn't do anything to fix this) And just a bunch of other issues. I have a 1440P 144hz monitor. And an i5 8600K overclocked to 5GHZ. I know i can expect some bottlenecking with my CPU. But i don't have the money to next to a new GPU also get a motherboard and CPU upgrade. Got a 1200W PSU platinum rated. So i'm not worried about that part. I have an "ASUS RTX 3080 ROG-STRIX" on pre-order. According to the lady i had on the phone i'm near the top of the list so i can expect it in october according to her. I'm wondering if i should cancel it and wait for the 3080TI Want to know what you all think about this. Because a lot of people seem to think the 10GB isn't enough. I want to play FPS games at high graphics at high framerates. But also want to max out games like The Witcher, Cyberpunk 2077, RDR2 etc. Hope you all can help me make a decision, thank you.
  6. I have a GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Gaming 7 motherboard. My problem is, like i said the 3080 is already cleaning out my bank account. Thanks to my illness i have to be on gov benefits because nobody in their right minds would pick me over someone healthy. So my funds are very limited. Getting a new mobo and CPU etc would cost way too much. And upgrading from an i5 8600k to an i7 8700k seems like a lateral move. I might upgrade some time down the line. But atm i simply can't afford it. It will take me multiple months to get the money just for a CPU.
  7. Hello everyone, as the title states, i have an i5 8600K overclocked to 4.8. I can probably go higher. But is this enough for a 3080? I currently have a dying 1080TI. And honestly i'd love to have a TI card again. I'm on the pre order list for an MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio. But i'm wondering if i should wait for the TI version. I love playing high fidelity games. But the games i always come back to are FPS games. I have a 1440P 144HZ monitor. Am ofc waiting for Cyberpunk 2077. And some of the other games coming out this year. My 1080 will probably not make it till the end of the year. The normal 3080 is already empthying my bank account. But since i'm chronically ill. Gaming is basically all i do, as sad as that sounds. So the thought of my 1080 self destructing before i get a new GPU is honestly kind of scary to me.
  8. Thank you all so much for the help. Its fixed now. (As far as i can tell) Hope it stays that way. Thanks again!
  9. Hello everyone, i messed up big time i think. And im in full panic mode. I got the DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN error. And i followed a guide on how to use CMD to get things back up and running. But maybe because im not in control of the router etc. I cant do anything. And it feels like all i did is fck it up more because now i cant connect to anything and im freaking out. Please help. Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help me fix this.
  10. Yea i tried the one from the end of september, early october and ofc the latest one with the driver for Blops 4 and none of it made a difference.
  11. Yea i'll probably stop using chrome, but it was also discord that made my GPU go to 100%. Currently on my 980Ti i can look at gifs and videos on discord and it wont go above 20%
  12. Don't know if i can bump this, but i will. I need answers and i really need to know if its my PC thats just messing up these cards or if those cards are just faulty. And i want to know what could cause all of this.
  13. When playing games like Overwatch, Blops 4, Ass creed etc on my 980TI, i usually have stuff running in the background. Like chrome and discord. I can freely alt tab. Right now i'm playing the binding of isaac, talking to someone on discord and typing this to you. And my CPU isn't going above 30% And my GPU when tabbing into chrome doesn't even go up above 20%, even when in chrome and tabbing into discord to look at a gif. But doing any of that on a 2080 for me has been impossible. I reinstalled drivers with DDU. I've done everything with DDU today and when i got the 2080 for the first time. Even doing it in windows safe mode etc. Chrome and discord were taking up all the resources.
