  1. i could get a GTX 980ti MSI gaming for 480$CAD and i can sell my GTX 1080 windforce for 850$CAD easy right now...it's tempting i could pocket the money for a next gen card...or a VR upgrade...hummmm

      If you've got a 1080p60 monitor might as well.

      Well to be fair an overclocked 980Ti is less than 10% slower than an overclocked 1080 in games (that's what HW Unboxed got in their 980Ti revisit video) so you're looking at 10-15% slower card for almost half the price of your current one :P If that performance satisfies you at 1440p, I'd say go for it. The price difference is seriously real here!

       

      I know I am satisfied with the 1440p performance for the time being, I decided not to sell my 980Ti due to lack of upgrade path (besides a 1080Ti but it costs 2.5x more and I don't really need that much performance)

      @dizmo He's at 1440p, 144Hz G-Sync ;)

  2. New Generation VS Last Generation

    the GTX 980 is similar to the GTX 1060 6gb only with less memory, the GTX 980 if you overclock can even be a bit faster than most 1060's in games. if you can find one within your budget it's a good card to buy.

    in fact, i think i would get something like this instead...

    good video, if you are after high-end gaming performance with expensive graphics cards and monitor(s)...or even VR...i would not get amd. personally i would try to swing for this and be in the zone for a couple years PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel - Core i7-8700 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor ($339.89 @ B&H) Motherboard: MSI - Z370 GAMING PLUS ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($111.98 @ Newegg) Memory: ADATA - XPG GAMMIX D10 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 Memory ($167.99 @ Newegg) Total: $619.86 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-01-19 15:00 EST-0500 the AMD option is also nice and i think it's still enough to get a nice gaming experience with a GTX 1080...but in the long run an intel i5-8600K or i7-8700 is a better bet imo PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor ($198.69 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: ASRock - Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 ATX AM4 Motherboard ($69.99 @ Newegg) Memory: ADATA - XPG GAMMIX D10 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 Memory ($167.99 @ Newegg) Total: $436.67 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-01-19 15:02 EST-0500
  5. Will a Ryzen 5 1600 Bottleneck a GTX 1080?

    if you care about rendering more than 60 frames per second, then yeah you're leaving a fair bit on the table even compared to a 7700K in games.. the 8700 and 8700K CPU's are even better to the point where it's worth to spend more money on them if you have a high refresh rate 1440p monitor with Gsync and stuff..
  6. ii 7700K on stock cooler

    it should be fine if you don't overclock/overvolt your graphics card imo H7 cryorig is worth the extra few $ over the 212.
  7. ii 7700K on stock cooler

    what PSU model?
  8. ii 7700K on stock cooler

    i don't think it's enough, it depends on voltage and airflow/case temp...but overall not a good idea, i would go in the bios and try to lower the voltages. this is a nice cooler for the price: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/93Crxr/cryorig-cpu-cooler-h7
  9. AMD RX 560 4gb or GTX 1050 SC 2gb

    ohhh right i was mistaken with the RX 460 which had fewer stream processors active and therefore was noticeably slower than the 1050...especially with early drivers. The RX 560 now has all the streaming processors actives on there and the drivers are mature and therefore it's slightly faster than the GTX 1050 overall...my bad.
  10. Gtx 1070ti / 1080 suggestions

    good luck because everything is out of stock everywhere...only cards remaining in stock are overpriced GTX 1050 and RX 460...everything else is out of stock atm.

    in case you guys still have doubt about graphics cards availability right now...this is what the graphics card isle looks like at Fry's electronics right now:

  14. $1000 Video Editing Build

    you don't need an aftermarket cooler and this machine will not produce much heat so i would let go the extra fans as well...instead get more RAM because 8GB won't get you very far. so yeah, i would try to cut some corners here and there...case is also too expensive for what it is IMHO...
  15. AMD RX 560 4gb or GTX 1050 SC 2gb

    humm...i don't know this website and the test conditions for this review but i must say it's very different from the rest of the web where the GTX 1050 is noticeably faster than the RX 560 across the board...i don't know.
