  1. Looks like the 6800XT is only as good as the 3070 for mining. Video shows that even after tuning it he hits 63MH/s like my 3070! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o---4uec1X4
  2. No you jave to buy an AMD chipset motherboard. I recommend the B550 chipset. MSI do some good one.
  3. I've decided to keep both. The 3070 will just be in a dedicated rig that will just be on in the corner once it's mining. Had enough components lying around to build one up. Apart from a 650W PSU that I've got coming tomorrow for only £36. I couldn't be dealing with selling the 3070 for only £50 profit when I could be mining and it pays for itself after 2 years.
  4. Try unplugging the reset button cable from the motherboard. Also, check the heatsink is pressed down properly by the latch.
  5. I've tuned my 3080 to 98MH/s at 230W which gives about $74/month. I also have PV cells so electricity is free for half of the time. So yeah, it's profitable.
  6. NEVER had nVidia driver problems. Check everything else. BIOS update, Windows update, Network driver, Sound driver
  7. I now own a Palit RTX 3070 (£530) and a Zotac RTX 3080 OC (£850). I mine Ethereum all day apart from playing Fortnite each evening. Spec below. The 3070 is all I need for Fortnite but I can mine 50% more everyday with my overpriced 3080. Do I sell one? Which one? Do I make a purely mining rig? What would you do?
  8. I'm not recommending an IPS. If you understood me you would see I recommended a TN at the start. You're looking for something that doesn't exist. IPS is closest for you.
  9. There is no objective "best". Just buy an IPS.
  10. I would say why is everyone obsessed with ASUS? From my experience as a computer engineer their stuff dies just as much as anything. There is no real advantage with brands. Tech inside counts. Don't like IPS for monitors because their overall brightness changes so regularly.
  11. Even though TN panels are older tech I'd still recommend them for the price. This one looks like a good deal. https://www.ebuyer.com/793688-iiyama-g-master-gb2760qsu-b1-27-qhd-monitor-gb2760qsu-b1
  12. Well there you are. Once your GPU is rendering 240 fps then it doesn't matter if there is more power to give. It won't give it as your monitor doesn't need it.
  13. You didn't give your display spec. If it's 1440p with 144Hz or less then your GPU won't need to max out.
  14. RTX 3070 has better availability and will be a good match for 4K 60Hz or 1080p 144Hz. I would also go for a Ryzen 7 5800X for the full 8 core experience.
