    jones177 reacted to Princess Luna in adobe softwares amd vs nvidia   
    Most Adobe applications that can hardware accelerate from your GPU are going to benefit greater from CUDA so nVidia it is.

    jones177 reacted to Windows7ge in What to do when RMA is lost during shipping   
    Usually you have to pay for your own return shipping. When you do you can pitch in the extra handful of dollars to insure the value of the product if it's lost or damaged.

    Thanks. I missed the non k part.
     
    I did my test just after the Metro E came out so I did not test anything newer.
    This video got about the same results I did with ACO, Fortnite and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

    jones177 got a reaction from Meln in RTX 2080ti - High temps :(   
    My RTX EVGA 2080 ti XC runs in the 80s underload. 
    My RTX EVGA 2080 ti FTW3 Ultra runs in the 70s under load.
     
    A water cooled 2080 ti should be in the 60s.
     
    Also my normal overclock to maintain 2050 mhz is 72c on the 3 fan FTW3 Ultra. I run at 2070 mhz at 74c. It will go to 2100 mhz but the fans are too loud to maintain it.
    With my XC (2 fan) card it is possible to maintain 2050 mhz but the fans are so loud that it is only good for benching.
     
    I may get a third 2080 ti. A hybrid this time and going by the EVGA forums I should get 64 to 65c under load.
     
    At 80c your loop is all show and no go because a 2080 ti downclocks well below that temperature.

    The opposite.
     
    The more you spend on a CPU the longer it will last.
     
    A PSU is one component that can be future proofed if you get one that you think will fill your needs not on your currant build but your next one.

    1. Choose your monitor first
    2. Decide what resolution and frame rates you are aiming for 
    3. Pick the rest of your system specs.

    jones177 got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Best Long Term Value GPU   
    When 3440 X 1440 monitors came out they were 60hz. I bought one. A little later I bought a GTX 1080 and everything ran over 60fps. A few months later I upgraded to a GTX 1080 ti and it was a total waste at that refresh rate and resolution.
     
    The world has changed since then.
    My RTX 2080 ti can't run a 120hz 3440 X 1440 like my GTX 1080 ran my 60hz version.
     
    Going by the "Displays" part of the forum 2560 X 1440 144hz is the most desired monitor. None of the recent AAA games I have bought can run close to 144fps at that resolution even with my overclocked RTX 2080 ti and 5ghz CPU. 
     
    When I ran 1080p 60hz monitors for years I only upgraded GPUs for more vram. I was already getting enough frames. 
    My 2011 vintage GTX 570 could do 120fps in Skyrim when it came out. The vram was for modding.
     
    As far as I am concerned we have not caught up to the current most popular monitor like we did with 1080p 60hz. Until we do that there is no long term value of any of the GPUs on the market today.

    jones177 got a reaction from xg32 in Ftw3 hybrid 2080ti   
    I use the EVGA forums to get that sort of info.
     
    62 to 65c under load was stated to be normal but some report high 50s. 
    Radiator placement seem to be a critical issue with low and in front the best choice. 
    I would have to buy a new case to achieve this.

    jones177 got a reaction from Zando Bob in Ftw3 hybrid 2080ti   
    That is the card I would buy if I get another 2080 ti.
     
    My 3 fan FTW3 Ultra runs between 2040 and 2070mhz. When I put a load on it for about the 20 seconds it goes up to 2100mhz but as the temps go past 64c the card downclocks to 2070. As temps go past 74c the card runs at 2040mhz.
     
    The overclock I use now is +117 on the core, + 800 on the ram and 124% on the power limit.  Any more creates too much heat and I downclock sooner. Something that would be fixed with a hybrid.

    jones177 got a reaction from UnbounDxKilleR in 2080 Super VS. 2080TI   
    If you need the performance,yes. 
    I run a 4k monitor and a 3840 X 1600 monitor. With a 2080S I could not use the settings I like.
    My next monitor will be a 144hz 3840 X 1600. My FTW3 Ultra can't ever do 100fps average in AAA titles at that resolution so I need even more power.

    Hi
    If you are getting a RTX 2080 ti go with i9 9900k. If you are going with a RTX 2080 go with a i7 9700k.
    If you are planning to upgrade to a high end Nvidia next gen card go with a  i9 9900k.
     
    If you are planning to do a lot of ray tracing games go with a 1440p 144hz, 3440 X 1440 100hz or a 3840 X 1600 75hz monitor. A RTX 2080 ti is not up to 4k raytracing.
    My 4k setup has a RTX 2080 ti but I play RTX games on my 3840 X 1600 monitor to be at or close to 60fps.

    But it might be better to recreate it in a vector format if you want the highest quality.

    jones177 got a reaction from honeymixes in 2080ti Strange power graph?   
    The power target goes up and down with demand. 
    I don't use GPU Tweak so here is what it looks like in MSI Afterburner.
     
    The drops in power are the transitions in the bench.

    jones177 got a reaction from BTGbullseye in PC freezing up mid game with new GPU   
    Freezing up could be your overclock. 
    I have to drop my CPU overclock for some games and my GPU overclock for others.
    I had to do it last week with Control.
     
    I also could be something getting too hot over time. My i7 8086k at 5.1ghz runs cooler than my i7 6700k did at stock. 
    Run MSI Afterburner as you play and check the graphs to see if anything is spiking.
     
    Try restricting your frame rate so that you have some overhead to deal with events like a reload or explosion.
    I have only had this issue with some older games.

    jones177 reacted to CADGuy23 in 2080TI or wait?   
    It's hard to tell you to wait because I don't think anyone really knows what is coming out. April is a long ways away.  I would recommend buying the best you can buy now because unless you have something specific in mind to buy, you could be enjoying your new parts.  Something new and shiny will always come out later.
     
    If budgeting is an issue I would look at the 2080 Super instead of the TI.

    Here are the single core scores for the top end Ryzens. 
     
    R9 3900X  score 213
    R7 3700X            205
    R5 3600X           202
     
     An i7 8700k has a score of 205 so any of the above CPUs will perform about the same in games.
     
    I ran an i7 8700k stock with a GTX 1080 ti with no issues so any of the above would be perfect with a RTX 2080.
