  1. can you post a picture of the front of the case and of the motherboard area after removing the side panel.
  2. Without knowing the case your build is in we cannot say for sure if this card will fit... that being said, your motherboard appears to be a standard ATX form factor and the blower style card you have listed will fit in the majority of ATX midtower cases, it's a two slot standard length card and is the most "standard" sized card you'll find.
  3. Your cheapest upgrade is an i7-8700k and a 2070super/2080/1080ti/2080super, both are just drop in upgrades with the least amount of headache required the least additional replacements to support them. 9700k is great but does carry the recommendation of a z390 board... it's the only officially supported board. and that will cost you money to replace. I'm also asuming you are running at least 8 or 16gb of DUAL channel 3000mhz ram.
  4. FPS is a fine metric for understanding raw GPU power but you're not interested in FPS you're interested in Frametime, this is what causes stuttering, when one frame takes 10x or 20x longer to produce, this causes a pause in the fluidity of the motion and picture. The end goal of this conversation is to help you pinpoint the cause of that stuttering. Something, is causing a momentary bottleneck that is starving the GPU of the information it needs to produce the next image/frame for display, it's only a few miliseconds in length but it does ruin the experience
  5. there will be almost zero appreciable performance difference between the two cards, cooling will be very similar, the primary difference is aesthetics and dimensions. the performance ability will be more determined by silicon lottery and therefore to an extent, overclocking.
  6. some images that are also necessary for further diagnosis, graphs showing the following during a gaming session in which the symptoms are present: frametimes in ms (found in afterburner) framerate also in afterburner system memory speed, usage ect in task manager disk transfer speeds also in task manager
  7. I see what you've said, i say that still images of a fluid gaming problem are very bad at providing a reliable context for diagnosis.
  8. Hmm, difficult problem. Your description does indicate a possible problem... anything from an overheating cpu/gpu(redo your thermal pastes? or try another cpu cooler to eliminate an AIO failure?) to a dying component. What would I be doing? 1. analyze suspected gaming performance against benchmarks for the games using similar hardware to see if your system is definitely low on performance. 2. if above proves true, checking GPU clocks and temperature, checking cpu clocks and temperature checking ram speed and amount checking SSD read/write speeds
  9. My Opinion: with a 6800k or a 3770k I see no problem with a 2070super/2080/1080Ti/2080super being an excellent 1440p120hz+ setup, I use a 1080Ti for 1440p 144hz and I enjoy it very much. you may see some CPU bottlenecking on newer titles that can use Higher core counts reliably... however IMO most games on which high refresh rates are very desirable are often less demanding due to their fast paced competitive nature over astonishing graphics and physics.
  10. Glad to hear there are others with a sense of ownership for their vehicles, take care of them and repair of the vehicles themselves. Most of my GPU purchases have been via craigslist, meet in person, test the card, inspect the card and buy if everything checks out. 2 or 3 have been ebay. I agree there is an unknown factor and less accountability that requires more checks before cash is exchanged. Also, please forgive my first sentence in the previous post, I was annoyed and I let it affect what I wrote negatively, I was classless and unkind.
  11. You are welcome to your opinion... but proclaiming yourself the smartest person that you know on a given subject is a good way to ensure others have a low opinion of you. As a automotive mechanic of 12 years who has owned nothing but used cars averaging over 100k miles my entire driving and working life and also having handled 80% of the above listed used GPU purchases in person and not online while using due diligence and common sense my personal actual experience is contrary to yours in both matters. Most buying used done online I would propose is done on ebay? which I have also
  12. My AOC monitor is Gsync compatable but is not on Nvidia's recommended Monitor list and it works flawlessly. So my experience has been excellent.
  13. Waiting is a valid option. FYI you could be waiting till Q3 or Q4 of this year to get Nvidias new cards. I'm currently very happy with my card and the current RTX cards are not a compelling upgrade for me... lots more price for not much more performance, IMO. If you're willing to wait for the new cards there will be more options: 1. the new cards will be available if you want them and they're not sold out. 2. current RTX used cards will drop in price 3. 1000 series GTX cards will drop even more in price. If you're not willing to wait, get the best single card that you
  14. Never buy a used car because you do not know why the person is selling the car. Never buy a used bike because you do not know why the person is selling the bike. Never buy a used xyz because you do not know why the person is selling the xyz. You're free to your own opinion, as am I. I've bought nothing but used GPU's since my last new purchased card a GTX970. so... gtx760(x2), gtx980(x2), gtx980ti(x3), Titan X, gtx1080(x2), gtx1070(x2), gtx1080Ti, gtx1060 6gb(x2), gtx1060 3gb. all of them have performed flawlessly like the GTX1080Ti currently in my system on a 240mm AIO, some are s
  15. Buying a new GPU to troubleshoot is... one way to do it. While playing PUBG: what is your GPU utilization percentage? what is your GPU temperature? what is your GPU boost speed? what is your CPU clock speed and temperature?
  16. There are a few questions that need asking and answering before you condemn the card as the problem. 1: has anything changed recently or since the last time you took notice of the card's performance. 2: temperatures and usage: is the card overheating and as a result thermal throttling? And is the GPU usage at 100% while playing PUBG. A program like MSI afterburner can answer these questions. 3: Is there something else in the system that could be inhibiting performance? The GPU can only work well if it is being properly and fully fed by the cpu, ram, pcie slot ect. 4: How do
  17. You're probably right, it's perfectly fine to discriminate as long as the company approves of it and you're not discriminating against the current crop of preferred ideological individuals. But I digress, Google is unimpeachable they can do no wrong, if they say he is in error he must be in error. Though while I do second the motion that you're there to work, however social interactions that happen inside of the place where we spend most of our day are rather unavoidable, and it is rather absurd to assume that social interactions are not apart of work.
  18. Resistance is futile, You will be assimilated, or you can GTFO. The stories, examples, testimonies seem to trickle out of Google about their internal toxicity towards anyone who does not conform to company standards dictated by the whim and direction of the full time outrage mob made up of some portion of the company workforce. Google is a private company, they are free to hold whatever values they like and face the consequences. What will the consequences be for an ultra-liberal workforce working in a vacuum chamber of their own ideas where the most extreme is rewarded
  19. That's a tough call with similar performance, on one side: Ray tracing, Much lower power consumption (160w vs 295w? i think), Freesync support (on supported/quality freesync monitors) vs Serious compute advantage(if it helps you at all), full freesync support If you like them both and can't decide/don't have a preference then pick by Price, Price, Price, looks, cooler performance or some other subjective difference.
  20. Aye, it means you lost less fluid before the pump starved and the system overheated. Definitely a fortunate occurance. I guess that would be the one benefit of mounting the radiator below the pump, leaks at the pump will leak less fluid.
  21. I've owned several and never had a leak myself. 1: replace it (I would replace it and then take it apart to attempt to find the source of the leak for my own curiosity) 2: clean the residue up with some alcohol, cotton balls and Q-tips 3: You're very fortunate that the leak did not cause any electrical shorts in the system. 4: just curious, but is your radiator mounted above or below the pump in your system?
  22. I don't custom loop. I do AIO I've done AIO modifications (240mm AIO for GPU) I would do AIO again, it's easy to change parts(i'm somewhat of a GPU swapping regular), provides excellent performance, and is relatively quiet... though not nearly as pretty as a custom loop... but then again who actually wants to marry a princess/supermodel... the money, the work, the drama, it all gets old and busted eventually... but some people enjoy that, kudos to them.
  23. NO, heavens no it's not overkill. If you have the money, desire the exclusivity, would enjoy owning it and don't necessarily care that for the price to capacity decrease/performance increase over other options isn't particularly in it's favor... then why not buy the best performing option? (the buying a 2080Ti is the same argument).
  24. Climate change is real Climate change has been happening as long as the earth has been around Climate change will continue to happen for as long as the earth exists I think the question really is --------> is our current climate change CAUSED by human actions My opinion: Climate change is happening, it's primary effecting factors are NOT human related, human actions are minor players in a very VERY large system. Some of my reasoning: 1: Go read THIS (by the Hoover Institution) It is short and concise and it is a very well re
