  1. Then go for the 270.
  2. What games do you plan on playing? The 270 itself is a nice deal, but it's still weak today. An SSD will benefit on general usage like much shorter boot time, faster app response etc.
  3. So you don't have a graphics card now and the PC is unusable?
  4. A single 1080ti. 2 1080s perform better only in games with good SLI scaling, but consumes a lot more power.
  5. What do you have now?
  6. How about adding R9 Nano to "high end value cards" and R9 285 to "mid range value cards"?
  7. If you like the looks of it. All these apps work the same way, just different design and support for RGB on the cards.

    1. "minor" actually means someone else, so this is a bad joke. Also, unlike RX 580s, you can still find 1070s easily, though not at a good price. 2. Nvidia releases a new lineup of cards every 2 years, and Pascal is over a year old now. We should see news and leaks on Volta soon. 3. Agree with BluJay here. You don't even need Freesync support on the monitor for adaptive sync to work. You can try find used 980ti. About $250 should get you one.
  9. In old cards you can flash a new BIOS into the graphics card, which gives direct control the limit of clock speed, power draw, voltage and some more that can be changed with software like Afterburner.
  10. If you can do it without crashing As long as you don't go past Nvidia's limit by flashing a new BIOS into the graphics card, doing any overclock cant hurt the card. The most you will get is a crash.

    performance drop only happens when gameworks features are turned on, like hairworks, heavy tessellation etc. Turn those off and it will be fine. How tight is your budget? Just like any new card, Vega is expensive as [profanity], so GTX 1070 or 980ti is what you can afford.
  12. What's the point of having SRT when it doesnt have wheels. You mean SMT? That's hyper threading to Intel, and support for that depends on your CPU.
  13. Bad luck then. Also update your video card drivers.
  14. Heat production of a card shouldn't suddenly increase either. Unless the fan blades snapped off, it's unlikely the cooler itself has a problem (you mentioned that it can still go full blast). That's why I suspect the thermal paste. When it dries to a certain point, it passes a lot less heat then it otherwise should.
  15. I would leave out Optane because its capacity is so small and so expensive for that. 16GB of RAM is already enough for games, but I guess filling in all the RAM slots looks good.
