  1. OP, Europe does not buy their stock from the US. America has nothing to do with Europe buying GPUs whatsoever so no, their tariff has nothing to do with Europe.
  2. To be honest I think Nvidia panicked in the beginning when AMD announced their shit and quickly started working on another model to beat them but now that things calmed down and everyone has figured out that Nvidia still gives you more FPS and features than AMD and that AMDs figures were flawed as they did not use ray tracing there is not really any need anymore for another 3080 model. They only need to pump out another version if AMD becomes a threat and to be fair, they really aren't. People with no budget are still going with Nvidia. DLSS is so stupidly overpowered that there really is
  3. https://www.ebuyer.com/1135820-xpg-spectrix-d60g-3600mhz-c14-16gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-memory-ax4u360038g14c-dt60 you could settle for 2x8. do you actually have a need for this or is this just some g4m3r bs you want to post on your guild discord to show off? as far as i know no game needs 32 gb nor is there any indication that this will change.
  4. OP you said it doesn't show up in partition or BIOS. Does this mean you already have storage drives installed? Have you tried plugging all storage drives out except the new one and then see if it is detected?
  5. I bought my Sennheiser HD 650 in 2014. Obviously they are fairly worn out and some of the cushioning is gone. If I put them in this state on eBay I doubt anyone would want them but I was considering getting replacement parts on eBay which cost only around £20 or less and replace all the cushioning. They should then look pretty much like new then since there is nothing else wrong with them. I also have the old box they came with which is in pristine condition and also literally looks like new. - My question is whether this would work and if people would be intereste
  6. I doubt they are going to wait until March considering Nvidia is announcing their 3060 on the 12th.
  7. AMD and Nvidia are both releasing their budget line up this month, the RTX 3050/3060 and AMD 6700/6700 XT which will most likely cost something around $300 and be really good 1080p cards. If this isn't urgent I would wait and see how those cards perform. Worst case scenario the older cards become cheaper so you it is a win/win either way. If you only buy a GPU first you might get some better performance but the CPU will be bottlenecking so in the end you're gonna have to buy a GPU and CPU both which is why I would save up until you can get everything in one go. By then the new cards will
  8. Since you are upgrading for the main purpose of gaming I would recommend you hold off buying anything at all until you can also upgrade your graphics card. The GPU is the most important factor which will ultimately decide your performance. Spending a lot of money on buying a new CPU, etc. will cost you a lot but not give you any performance or perhaps just a little bit. If you are desperate for performance I would save up until you can also buy a new GPU and until then the other parts will most likely have gone down in price as well.
  9. Get a 3600 and keep it even if the prices go down on the 5600. There is no point to spend money needlessly. Just because there is a new generation it doesn't mean that you must buy the new products instead. The 5600X is too powerful for a 3060 Ti and there is no need whatsoever to get one. The most important factor when it comes to gaming is the GPU. The 5600X is not going to magically boost your fps to another level. What you said about CPU and high resolution does not matter here. You probably heard that in videos where they used a RTX 3090 on 1080p. If you want to have hundreds and hun
  10. Because "business" has nothing to do with "making money and profit". That's caveman logic that children use on the internet. Nvidia is more than happy to make zero profit this year, completely zero, nothing, as long they can ensure that AMD stays the underdog. AMD had to spent a lot of money on R&D to get to where they are right now, in a competitive place, and if AMD cannot make a BIG chunk of profit on their new cards they will be in big trouble because they cannot just keep pumping moiney into their GPU R&D if it is not getting them any money back and this is why Nvidia do
  11. Because Nvidia is a business and not a fan club for geeks to obsess with. Nvidia has to push out new cards to ensure that they are not only better than AMD but FAR AHEAD. By doing this they are forcing AMD to release new cards as well and if AMD can't then they're done because they will continue being the underdog. AMD had to work very hard to get the performance they have right now whereas Nvidia has a lot of further performance that they kept away from consumers. Nvidia wants to ensure nobody has any reason at all to buy an AMD card just like last gen when nobody cared about gettin
  12. I don't care about Intel but they better not do this or there is going to be more demand for TSMC, etc. which already have barely any stock and then the GPU shortage will literally never end, literally. The thing a lot of people don't seem to understand is that companies do not just magically manufacture more because "they love money so so so very much". There is a very long process behind upping production. Companies want to own as few factories as possible while selling as much as possible because in the worst case scenario when demand decreases they need to sell those factories off or someh
  13. OP I would leave everything as it is and wait for CDPR to release the big patches. Apparently they are going to be releasing two big patches until March which are meant to fix a lot of things and also improve the performance. If you are lucky you may be able to play CP2077 properly without upgrading but if you do have to upgrade at least by then the shortage issues will be gone so it's a win/win for you either way.
  14. The cryptocurrency market has to die. From a logical and rational point of view it makes no sense whatsoever to convert electricity into an online currency. It literally has zero purpose. No I don't care that it helps you dodge taxations or that you are able to make an income from this. Electricity usage is already high enough in the world, we don't need morons running graphics cards day and night for nothing more than just money making reasons. I doubt Americans are able to understand my argument or care too much about environmental consequences but I can definitely see the EU stepping in one
  15. OP, if you want to play at 4K then the 3080 makes sense but if money is a factor for you, and it obviously is since you are asking if it's worth it, then no, don't buy it. Due to the 4K tax you will always be forced to keep buying the new high end models to be able to run the resolution and unless you swim in money and are happy to splash out a thousand on a new graphics card every two years you shouldn't bother with 4K. I know it sounds fancy but it isn't worth it. The 1080 was called a 4K card in all reviews when it came out and look at it now. I would highly suggest settlin
