  1. assuming same model [3rd party maker] eg asus strix for example. pick best price. if you overclock the 1070Ti and put in a bit of effort along with above adequate cooling u can get 1080-like performance while saving 60-90$. from the benchmarks i saw on average on youtube it looks like the 1070Ti is a better proposition. but then you have to ask yourself is paying an extra 60-90$ worth an extra 5-8 fps? that i can't answer but personally i would go 1070Ti. especially given your monitor has an upper limit of 75hz, if you did have a higher frame rate monitor then a 1080 would be the best thing you can buy. according to witcher 3 i saw 1080Ti only outputting approx 130fps on 1080p maxed out which is scary given how powerful the 1080Ti is [and this benchmark i saw was run with an 8700k like you said above]... which is accurate to what I see myself [90-100fps on 1440p maxed] so do not be too down about this, it is one of the most graphically intense game i have played so far but don't mind the loss as I'm fine with floating around 100fps on avg.] video i was watching just now to try and "deduce" :
  2. You'd probably be fine even with a 1070/1070Ti lol if you really want because 1080p 75hz as you said is easily attainable with those two. Unless you really need that 1080/1080Ti spec in your comp that makes you feel good then in that case a 1080 would be best at the lower price but not tossing too much for negligible performance increase [at very high frame rates the CPU starts to bottleneck especially in 1080p gaming depending on what you have since there's a shit ton of frames to compute]. 1080Ti rather overkill for any 1080p resolutions, you're better off going 1440p if you need a 1080Ti. 2c.
  3. Strix 1080Ti Owner here. Fans only spin after 55*c on the default automatic setting. This is to keep it as quiet as possible. However I set it to a manual constant power load of 36% [lowest setting i do on GPU Tweak] and it's not loud at all.
  4. definitely nothing to do with gpu tweak is what i'm saying. uninstalling it won't make any difference. also cut the word jerk out it makes you look more of a lesser ;-)
  5. doing that now thanks P-cadence! will let you know how it goes
  6. Title as above, I've only noticed my games started taking a huge dip in frames at 1440p which seemed very strange given the 1080Ti should perform exceptional. 1) Tried reinstalling Nvidia Drivers + GeForce Experience, rebooted and still same issue. which i did just now Anyone had has this similar issue or know how to fix? It's kinda bugging me because even a super simple game like for example league of legends which is nothing... on my casual days is barely mustering above 60fps which is strange as i normally see absurd fps numbers [250-400] photo attached for reference. it's like when i turn off furmark the clock jumps up to 354MHz and when i want to run furmark the GPU clock drops to some low number.
  7. 1050 is so weak i think better off looking at rx570-580 if u can. Dont spend little and then spend more again this should be a one off thing
  8. Yea it should power no problem. My 1080ti and 7700k [5GHz 1.35V] uses approx 575W power. don't think the rating should matter way too much. unless you're leaving your computer on 24/7 [eg miners]
  9. i would get it considering the jacked up and messed up state of the market now. it might not be the most perfect card [hint 1080ti] but you just need to compromise a few settings in and out. [also AA off since 4k is so detailed you don't need to smooth anything]. that should help
  10. at 31.5" i would be looking at 4k because the estate allows 4k. however i do not like 4k personally on 27", 1440p standard widescreen seems fine which is what i rock at the moment and is huge in front of me. ultrawide is another option but due to it's niche sector it isn't always the most cheapest for a bit more resolution left to right.
  11. i leave mine [PG279Q] at 165hz all day whether i'm gaming or just browsing the internet. no harm, been 10 months already since
  12. won't recommend vega 64 imo, expensive, overrated and hard to find not to mention the basic vega 64 cost 500$ more than i paid for my 1080ti which is a dump. 1080ti is best option out there period. From my experience, even witcher 3 which i consider quite intense in terms of graphics. at 1440p i'm stuck around 100-120fps unless i turn the preset down by 1 where i can hit the 144-165fps mark. this is with an overclocked 1080ti & 7700k. wouldn't recommend a 1070ti tbh, the prices are quite high at the moment.
  13. that's quite expensive for a 1060... i'd say try looking at eBay for some 20% off deals they pop in and out like on the daily if any. CX650W nah, don't get that. Get a TX or RMx, put a bit more quality ass power supply in your system. Also you could go for a 500W PSU with that, 650W is overkill. I'm using a 1080Ti // 7700k with a RM750x and some still tell me it's overkill but eh whatever floats my boat. otherwise most compoenents are good and i won't comment since it's your preference, i never built an ITX build before.
  14. noise in high end psus should not be an issue. This includes stuff like EVGA's G2/G3, Corsair's TX/RMx and better just as some examples. also i'd probably dump more money imo since this power supply is the heart of your system. ymmv, but i wouldn't "skimp" and get the best especially at that rating. ---- i'm using a RM750x with a 7700k overclocked to 5GHz @ 1.3V and a Strix OC 1080Ti. Probably "overkill" for my needs i could have saved a bit on the 650x but eh, too late now. opened and using it so I'm not going to regret but move fforwards. given you're rocking a more efficient cpu and a step lower than me in the graphics card you could opt for 650w to be safer imo.
  15. 1050ti is a basic graphics card lower your settings. Also dependent on the actual program. in most cases with a 1050ti that will mainly be the bottleneck due to the actual cost and simple design of the card itself. You'll only start seeing CPU bottlenecks when it comes to stuff like high frame rate gaming at higher resolutions (just one example, there's more obviously) eg 1440p at 144-165hz, a CPU will start to be as important but then even my 1080Ti is limiting me over the 7700k so. Technically it all depends on what you do. eg Witcher 3 for me doesn't bust over 120FPS... with maxed out settings on 1440p w/ a 1080Ti. I could drop settings but it would negate the true reason I bought a 1080Ti to play fully maxed out. YMMV. Like the 2nd poster suggested, TURN DOWN YOUR SETTINGS, especially with a 1050Ti, that would muster 60fps on average or lower settings. For me it was a necessity not to do so, because I wanted the best gaming experience for the amount of shit i tossed on the setup. This is true, most of the times anything gaming related, will have bottlenecks regarding to GPU. For other tasks, it's mostly CPU dependent. People need to be aware that it depends on what THEY do, gaming? or workloads? For workloads, I doubt the GPU will ever be a true limitation [Video Rendering, 3d task photo etc]. Majority of the people wouldn't be concerned with bottlenecks IF they already know what they wanted to do. If gaming bottlenecking with CPU is and only is a concern if you venture into high frame rate gaming (>>>>100fps)++, even at 4k gaming w/ a 1080Ti, the GPU still is the true limiting factor of a build, since the CPU has no issues processing 60fps without a doubt but the GPU struggles due to the intensity. Example; my 7700k limits me when I'm using premiere pro. Since exporting and rendering is all CPU intensive based versus GPU. So much that my CPU hits 100% most of the time on stock settings.
  16. not to mention a basic base vega 64 is currently the price in australia the same as an asus poseidon 1080ti which is the most exp graphics card i known to date so screw that entirely!! haahaha
  17. pull out and plug in again. 99.5% should work. source: i had the similar situation before. couldn't detect M.2 nvme which was weird af.
  18. 1) use ur case on the table or elevated surface. i find floor use freaking lazy and collects dust WAY too often. ever since i shifted to top table [lost some table space], it never became dusty. in fact dust is super minimal... 2) side case open. do you [or him] clean often? 3) rusting? lol gg. invest in a dehumidifier. 4) nothing to do with grounded imo, that bit you're [he is] overthinking way too much.
  19. high performance => higher power usage (mostly or usually... im assuming companies get better in long run) => more heat generated. if you're worried about the temps buy an EK heatsink to mount on top of the M.2 nvme if you want. I personally don't bother because I won't even push it to the maximum where it's 70-90*c. It floats around 40*c max for me which is typical for my use. only way i can think you will overheat it is by constantly writing data over long periods of time... but given how fast m.2 are, the file transfer is probably completed before you even worried close about "overheating"
  20. you're overthinking it. they last pretty damn long. like themctipers say just buy and move on stop obsessing about small shit like this. edit: by the time your drive "fails", a successor will be in the same price point as YOU paid it at 2-4x storage tenfold... if you get what i mean.
  21. for me i think 21:9 is a niche product lineup in my opinion. it does command a more premium pricetag over the standard 16:9 monitors with relatively similar specs. would it improve your gaming? i probably can't answer that as I myself cant justify the premium of 21:9 vs 16:9 as of now [i'm talking about a 500-600aud difference from asus pg279q to say a pg348q/x34 predator] but some will swear by it and their opinion would then be more valuable as they've experienced it more often than i did, mine is infrequent usage at friends house when playing game. Youtube movies, not so, you'll have black borders on left and right since most video content made for 16:9 only ratio. unless u can find cinematic ratio on some then maybe
  22. what is YOUR budget because this is something you have not listed and I'm probably assuming it's huge. Asus MG279Q = IPS Freesync 144Hz 1440p? [700aud at the time i bought it] july 2017 Asus PG279Q = IPS G-Sync 165Hz 1440p? [900aud at the time i bought it] july 2017 only quoted these two monitors as i have both of them but my brother uses the freesync variant for now as he has an amd graphics card, and I use a nvidia graphics card which benefits off g-sync... unless you need g-sync the asus is probably the lowest monitor i've seen so far that has IPS & 144hz rate at 1440p. it just makes no sense to put ips in 1080p 144hz personally as it will be too costly [the refresh rate already puts these monitors at a step higher than the base specs], adding IPS would just increase the premium even more making it not so cost wise for 1080p gamers. also it might help if you expand your question a bit more: what's your gaming tower specs? what games do you play? what's your budget? because right now my answer is long winded, but i try and shoot all possible angles i guess since i'm free to type a bit up now. but for others... maybe they need more refined questions.
  23. Most prebuilt pcs tend to be on the smaller side [which is a benefit for those concerned about sizability/dimensions] BUT do not have the flexibility of upgradability [as this is how they sell it to most consumers on the intention that they most likely would not tweak it around in the future but use it "as it is"... you'd might stumble in some issues so one way or another is better off building off a new system altogether... don't expect the 1030 to even power most current titles except for ultr abasic windows games with little to no graphic usage... you'd be lucky if it does so... also do not use the word 2k monitor... it's either 720P(HD), 1080P (FHD), 1440P (WQHD) or 4K [2160p if u want to keep it consistent (UHD)]
