  1. I'll be playing at 1440p.. 2080 ti is not cheap and I don't want to spend so much just for a 5 - 10% increase in FPS.
  2. I'm thinking of upgrading my graphic card to improve my gaming experience.. my goal is to be able to run Odyssey at the highest setting / frame-rate on a 1440p monitor.. I'm currently using a GTX 1080 ROG strix ..If I upgrade to RTX 2080ti, I'm concerned I won't see a huge improvement if my CPU becomes a bottleneck.
  3. The trouble with GTX 970 is the 3.5G V ram which is not quite enough for modern titles.. I ran into a lot of frame drop issues because of it and it's frustrating.. having 2 cards in SLI won't help. I sold my 2 GTX 970 2 years ago and upgraded to a single GTX 1080.. It was one of the best upgrade decision.. Games run smoother .. have a higher min. fps and more stable in general. You might want to wait for GPU price to come down though,
  4. I think the i5 will do just fine.. CPU is seldom the bottleneck for most titles. especially if he is gaming at higher resolution.
  5. I suppose you're right.. I have some doubts as to whether my GPU can take advantage of the higher pixel count in 4K. Right now I'm playing Assassin's creed which is fairly hard to run. Technology seems to be slowing down in the GPU department which is a sad thing.
  6. Is 1440p still the best resolution for playing triple A games? I have a non G-sync (I use v-sync) 1440p 60hz monitor and I'm thinking what my next upgrade should be. Should I go for a higher refresh rate 1440p or a 4K panel? I'm not sure if my GTX 1080 can handle 4K and still churn out 100+ frames per sec.
  7. it's the same as powering a single 240W card so I think it should be fine.
  8. Hi.. Thanks for your reply.. I tried that too.. there is no difference in performance so I don't think SLI is the issue.
  9. Help please .. I have a decent gaming set up but yet I have trouble maintaining 60 fps on this old title playing at 1440p. Many have suggested turning PhyX off which I've tried.I have done that but I'm still having frame dips every 30 secs or so to low 40 fps.. it makes the game really unplayable. In game both my GPU usage is only approx 30%, sometimes lower and none of my CPU core is near 100% so there is not CPU bottleneck. Specs: i7-5820k at 4.2Ghz and Asus GTX 1080 ROG Strix in SLI (stock), Windows 10 DX12
  10. But if I only have 1 monitor and I turn off SLI, the 2nd GPU will be in idle no? I don't want pull out the cards because the RGB effect lok great on my set-up
  11. I upgraded to 2 Asus GTX 1080 ROG Strix recently and I run them on SLI. Since i have a 1440p 60 fps monitor, it's overkill for most of the games I'm playing - I'm planning to upgrade to the Asus PG279Q with 1440p and 165 Hz refresh rate but that won't happen until august. If I am playing less demanding games, will it do any good to disable SLI for now? Another to ask the question is: If I have 1 GPU at 100% load vs 2 GPUs at 50% load .. which one consumes more power? I usually cap my frame rates at 60 anyway.
  12. I put 2 cards back, enabled SLI, disable SLI again and then charge the display port connector to the top card. Now it's working.. thanks for your reply though.
  13. It's black screen after BIOS.. I tried with single card and the issue persist. If there PCIE slot is faulty, I should not be able to play games in SLI. This is weird..
  14. I encountered a strange problem after upgrading to Asus GTX 1080 ROG strix recently.. Since I installed the cards on my Asus X99-A motherboard, the display is coming from the bottom PCIE x8 slot instead of the default x16 slot (the one closer to the CPU) It doesn't matter if I switch the cards, the display would still come from x8 slot instead of x16. Is there a way to fix this? I am okay with having the x8 slot as the primary GPU but I just can't figure out why that is the case..
  15. RX 480 for better bang for bucks and higher Vram.
