    stealth80 got a reaction from Xeros in Should I turn on G-Sync when playing FPS games?   
    Generally you should have G-sync and v-sync on. G-sync will take care of 20 ish to 144 and v-sync will limit the FPS output of the GPU to the refresh of the screen

    The PSU panel comes with the case, the forward end is what I made to route cables and the drains from the reservoirs:

    That's basically what I did, I transferred the major components from my old build, added the 1080 GTX and Crucial SSD and got to work. My previous build had 2x 360 60mm thick rads + that one at the bottom of the 303, which is a 60mm 240,
     
    Previous build had insane cooling but the case was waaaay too big and we needed a new desk:

    stealth80 got a reaction from Oskar94a in SLI in 2018   
    source?
     
    whats your experience?
     
    And most of those people haven't ever even used SLI
     
    The problem is always the same on the internet. People only take to the forums looking for fixes to problems theyre having, people read it and start saying that x product etc is bad, that gets spread …. hence SLI is dead, SLI is dead, fact is the vast majority of people have zero experience of SLI. How many people actually come on here and say "hey guys ive been using this product/tech for a little while now and you know what? It's great, its stable and works great and provides a good performance jump" ? 
     
    Ive said this before on these forums and ill say it again (with this caveat this time as it was taken out of context - Im not saying there was no issues, im saying how many actually experienced vs read about it) How many times did you hear about Iphone7's bending in peoples pockets and how many people actually experienced the "slow 0.5gb vram" stutter on 970 GTX? I bet less than 1% of the people on forums spouting off about it actually experienced it.
     
    I had 2x 970s in SLI for 18 months and had a single 970 a year longer. I never experienced the slow down (not saying it didn't exist) and you know what else? 2 games from around 100 didn't support SLI, Just Cause 3 and Quantum Break (terrible port, didn't even use Gsync)
     
    You need to ask what games you own, I guess most will support SLI to some extent, the actual performance varies. Just keep in mind that when the 1180 arrives, it will "probably" (Carlsberg quote lol) have around the same performance as your 1080 SLI. With that in mind and announcements expected in late July, it might be an idea to sell a 1080 now and the other once the 1180 is released and just grab an 1180. If this was year ago Id say go for it (depending on your monitor res?) but were so close, you would be better with one with cash to upgrade.

    stealth80 reacted to i_build_nanosuits in Gtx 1070TI or Gtx1080 no TI?   
    i agree, and also you can expect price cuts on 10 series cards, when nvidia release new cards they always ajust the older cards, so in a month from now you can probably get a ''brand new'' GTX 1080 for around 350$ to 400$ easily would be my guess..maybe even less.

    Budget - Pentium CPU, 1050/1050ti/570, 8gb ram, HDD - less than $500
    Low end - i3/Ryzen 2200/2400g/Ryzen 1300 - 1400, SSD, 1050ti/1060/580 - Around $800 ish
    Mid range - i5/1600/2600X, 1070/vega 56, SSD, HDD, 16gb ram - Around $1100 ish
    High End - i7/1700/2700x, 1080/vega 64, SSD, HDD, 16gb ram - around $1500 ish
    Enthusiast - i7/2700X, 1080ti, SSD, HDD, 16/32gb ram - around $2000
    Work Station/blow the budget - i9/Threadripper, Titan/1080ti (possible SLI), Raid SSD, HDD storage, 32/64gb ram - $2500 - $3000

    Not really, you say yourself it includes water cooling, that's obviously not factored, so considering an average loop is around $400 is custom, puts it in the high end. 1070 is mid range, gotta remember theres 1070ti, 1080 and vega 64 for high end, enthusiast would be 1080ti with titan for people with more cash than brains.
     
    as I said, its subjective as well
