    which game?

    Best GPU for 240 hz

    For 240Hz you dont need just a good GPU but also a very good CPU and fast RAM. With your CPU and RAM you will not get stable 240FPS in most games and in Siege I doubt you will even reach 200 most of the time.
  3. Yeah, on 400 series boards it will likely not be a big deal for most peple. But you can still get one of those PCIe to 4x NVME cards and pop it in if you want.
  4. Its a big deal even if we dont have PCIe 4.0 devices because you can still take the advantage of having twice the amount of bandwidth. Especialy for Chipset bandwidth this is a huge deal because now you can run multiple NVME SSDs and USB devices just from chipset without hitting the bandwidth limits like many people do right now, me included. And I dont even have a single NVME SSD. I am hitting the limit just from all of my USB devices connected. For most people it doesent matter if you run your graphics card from PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 as they tend to just use one card anyway so there is plenty of bandwidth for them. If you run something like 1080ti or 2080ti + some extra card and you have to step down from PCIe 3.0 x16 to PCIe 3.0 x8 then you may actualy see some performance degradation in some scenarios as those cards may need more bandwidth in some situations than what x8 PCIe 3.0 can provide so PCIe 4.0 completely solves this as you can use half of the lanes and still have more than enough bandwidth. This also means that if you had to buy the HEDT platform just because you had too many PCIe devices and the consumer platform could not handle it because it usualy had way too few lanes, now you can buy the consumer platform and likely be fine because PCI 4.0 has double the bandwidth.
  5. likely not unless you bought it very recently and you're in the 14 day return period

    Monitor Colour

    If you have Amazon available you can buy one of those calibration tools and then return it after you use it.

    X570 Taichi spotted!

    Yess. I've got your 24000th post! And you can let the chipset melt the BGA, that would be fun. You are playing some games and suddenly... "clank!" inside your case
  8. You may have fast boot enabled. I'm sure that Gigabyte has a utility you can install in Windows that let's you reboot to BIOS.

    you can manually spin it to change the cpu clocks
  10. IDK man.. I started playing and streaming NMS just yesterday and I havent got a single $ yet

    4k playback issues

    @The clueless enthusiast Make sure to enable Direct3D11 Video Acceleration in VLC. Open VLC then press "CTRL + P" to open Tool Settings. Then on top navigate to Input/Codecs and change the Hadware Accelerated Decoding to Direct3D11 Video Acceleration and restart the application for it to take effect. This will offload most if not all of the video decode from CPU to the GPU and it should play without issues. If you dont have this option here, you are using a very old version of VLC players. Get the new VLC 3 player then. This is the CPU and GPU usage of playing 4k Avatar with Direct3D11 Video Acceleration enabled: This is when its disabled... all the load is on the CPU now:

  13. Look. I dont really care. If you are buying from any store in EU product like a graphics card. You are guaranteed to have 2y warranty for that product not from the manufacturer but from the seller. I am not saying that Inno3D is an amazing brand. Im saying that if the price difference is 200eur then Inno3D is more than good enough. There is no reason why anyone should spend 900eur for RTX 2080 if that can almost get you the cheapest RTX 2080ti if you spend 100eur more which will still be significantly better. I agree that OP should likely look at other brands besides Inno3D and ASUS and he will likely find a better card for similar price of the Inno3D card. But I was just simply answering to his question which only contained 2 options. I dont even know which exact models of these cards is he talking about. He only mentioned brands. And as I said previously. If the Inno3D card is using FE PCB then the only thing different from RTX 2080 FE is the cooler and I see no issue there at all.
  14. 1 year warranty does not exist in EU. You have 2years minimum. And Ive dealt with multiple Inno3D cards and had no issues. You can encounter issues with any card. If the model he talks about uses reference PCB then there is basicaly nothing different besides the cooler itself vs the RTX 2080 FE.
