  1. Hey y'all, As everyone else - I am planning to go with a 3080 upgrade build. I will however wait until around November - want to see what AMD has and probably go with a Zen 3 as that's out soon too. I did see the 3080 has some.. promising performance in 4K but as I play all sorts of games, not sure if native 4K is the best choice. Also seen - 60Hz 4K monitors are kind of affordable but above that, ridiculous prices. I am also looking for a good 1440P monitor - what's the best in around the MAX 450-500 GBP mark? ((550 USD or so))
  2. I wonder what the best brand to go for is for this type of stuff. is it SONY, LG or Samsung? I believe this seems OK - however, not really sure. - https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/tv-and-home-entertainment/televisions/televisions/samsung-ue43tu8507uxxu-43-smart-4k-ultra-hd-hdr-led-tv-with-bixby-alexa-google-assistant-10206280-pdt.html Not much seems to be popping up from LG / SONY.
  3. Hey guys! I want to buy a nice TV for roughly £400-500 MAX. I need it to be a very good picture quality and to have good SMART features, as it will be mostly used from a phone, Nintendo Switch and so on - not actual, cable TV or anything like that. I'd prefer it from the likes of Amazon perhaps where I have good delivery, but other UK outlets would suffice. Does not need to be massive either, just a nice large size, with GREAT sound and PICTURE and SMART functions. I found stuff like this -> 1- https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/tv-and-home-entertainment/televisions/televisions/samsung-ue43tu7100kxxu-43-smart-4k-ultra-hd-hdr-led-tv-10206773-pdt.html?istCompanyId=bec25c7e-cbcd-460d-81d5-a25372d2e3d7&istFeedId=4d7eb93e-055f-499d-8ee5-1cdcc50d67d1&istItemId=irwattita&istBid=tztx&srcid=198&cmpid=ppc~gg~0045+(Shopping+Ads)+Large+Screen+Television+-+Brand+Samsung~(0045+(PLA)+Large+Screen+Television+-+Samsung+ad+group~Exact&mctag=gg_goog_7904&kwid=GOOGLE&device=c&ds_kids=92700037211844129&tgtid=0045+(Shopping+Ads)+Large+Screen+Television+-+Brand+Samsung&=--present--&gclid=Cj0KCQjwwOz6BRCgARIsAKEG4FVIVwBmRdw2ne69koIBMZudEYgg9y60MBMz3PYPBDw6s2OVMGUMrCoaAqzYEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds 2 - https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/tv-and-home-entertainment/televisions/televisions/samsung-ue43tu8507uxxu-43-smart-4k-ultra-hd-hdr-led-tv-with-bixby-alexa-google-assistant-10206280-pdt.html Are these a good TV option with Samsung?
  4. Thanks for the replies. As I did say - I play a ton of different games from multiplayer to single player. I played in 60FPS @ 1080 for the last 5 years now so I am well due an upgrade. Im going to do a massive full upgrade - however my main dilemma is do I do 4K or 1440P high FPS on a nice 300-400 pound monitor. Trying to navigate that path which will decide how I upgrade. A 3090 is overkill for me I’d say.
  5. I mean - I like the promising performance NVIDIA revealed but I feel like 1440 is a good balance for all sorts of games. I don’t just play single player games.
  6. Oops. Missed that on the phone. Well - 3K is the roof basically. Future proofing
  7. Well - throw in a monitor and a non reference 3080 and the budget is already hit
  8. Yep, I know. RTX for me is not a factor. But the 3080 performance at the price is very pleasing. I do not need a TITAN like card in the 3090 - I’m not doing such work in my PC. I also need to decide if intel or Amd For CPU
  9. Yeah - but will I be able to achieve high FPS in 4K in 4 years time too? Not sure. Would I be able to in 1440P? Quite more likely.
  10. It’s from Nvidia’s one thing. But even now in control and stuff just above 60 FPS in 4K. So not sure - 1440 might be a better mix of best of both worlds still..
  11. Well - I got everything except a monitor. I just need a new monitor - thing is, the RTX 3080 did over 60 FPS in 4K now - but I wonder how it would fare in that in a few years. Whereas at 1440 it would chew through everything for a long while.
  12. Well - I don’t need it to last 10 years. I’d like to make sure I can run everything maxed or almost for 3-5 years then just do a full upgrade whatever is new then. I play MMOs, single player games. PUBG and so on. Quite a lot really - nothing is off the charts, except anime games..
  13. Budget (including currency): 3000 GBP Country: UK Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: AAA games and gaming for the next 3-4 years Other details: not sure if I want to go 1440P or 4K.. Hey all, so basically I want to put together a soljd rig that’ll last me 3-4 years again. I intend to play new and large games obviously. Choice of GPU would be a 3080 and CPU either Ryzen or Intel.. not quite sure. Do you guys think 4K gaming is a real deal or still a gimmick and just stick with a good 1440P with high FPS?
  14. I see - not sure how I feel about buying a used office chair, seems a bit.. strange. And over £1000 for a chair is a LOT more than £350 on the high ends.
  15. Could you link me a UK / International link for any of your alternatives please? Just so I can add it to the mix.
