  1. This. Maybe if you really wanna be serious about it I'd consider looking at something from say, Sony or Canon because they're commonly used in the higher end video space, get used to their names for various controls/menu functions and stuff. But overall ergonomics are probably the biggest factor. an A6000 shouldnt be too expensive last I looked and is still a very solid little camera. Your money should go primarily to lenses, Not so much the camera body. I'd stick to a mirrorless as opposed to a DSLR because DSLRs are somewhat dying off at this point.
  2. I'd throw it all together and just slot in the 3060 Ti when you get one After all its also a good idea to make sure there are no issues while you're still within return policies and such and you can still enjoy your shiny new CPU in some tasks without a better GPU to go with it Maybe when AMD launches the 6600/6700 or whatever things will improve slightly
  3. At the time I bought my X27 I was seriously nervous about dropping $1500 on a monitor, but after living with it for 2 years..yeah no regrets. I wanted something with solid color accuracy and pixel density for photo editing AND a high refresh for gaming. I do not like ultrawides very much I considered 2 monitors, but what sold me on the X27 was the fact that by the time I got 2 solid monitors, a good 4k one for photo editing and a good 1440p high refresh one for gaming, i was at more than $1500 at the time with no HDR or anything on top of it. Add to that i dont really have the spac
  4. Games themselves look fine at 1440p, depends on the title, at the end of the 1080 Ti I started bumping a few titles down to 1440p to get acceptable performance and while it looked worse it generally wasnt too bad, Tech like DLSS makes lowering the resolution better because it uses AI upscaling to (in many games) get quite close to full resolution. Not every game supports DLSS but DLSS seems to be coming in most major titles these days Going to full 144hz does create some problems, I run mine at 120 instead, if you do HDR content you have to choose between 10 bit color at 98hz or 8
  5. Modern AAA titles it can be hard, but usually ones where you need/want 120 its easy enough to get to, CoD Black ops Cold War for example easily gets there with DLSS enabled and looks a treat, Doom Eternal is extremely well optimized and gets 4k 120 easily, Apex, League, etc, all easily exceed 120fps. the 3080 has absolutely made the X27 shine (I started off with a 1080 Ti when I bought it and that could be struggle city a lot of the time). Also yes, if you need to turn the res down to 1440p in the future or something, you do still get 120hz, so its kind of a best of both worlds thing
  6. I'm running the Acer Predator X27 which uses the same panel ABSOLUTELY go for the PG27UQ... as for fan noise i have never heard the one in mine. the 3080 runs things AMAZINGLY well on it on top of it, you can get 4k 120 in quite a few titles pretty easily and the HDR performance is stunning
  7. Theres so many factors i could list that can be summed up as "it depends on what two monitors you are considering" For example, there is more to a good monitor than just refresh rate. if the 240hz monitor is VA for example it could have far better black levels and contrast and thus far better image quality. On the other hand it could be TN and the viewing angles and color reproduction could be awful To me, I like a blend of good refresh rate, contrast ratio and color reproduction. I am a sucker for a GOOD HDR implementation, I will gladly pay (and encourage others to sp
  8. Definitely go for an SSD over an HDD, I'm not sure about UK pricing on specific models but either add a 500gb SSD to that (About $60 in the US) or go for a 1TB SSD. I've never been a huge fan of the "120gb just for windows" thing, but I also run my system 24/7 so boot time isnt a big deal to me To me, I always try to think ahead just a bit when it comes to the PSU, Go for a good quality unit from eVGA, Seasonic, Corsair etc and always give yourself some room to grow. Yes you have a RTX 3060 today but maybe in a year theres a kicking deal on a used 3080 or something, in the US the d
  9. LOL Yeah I was gonna say.. Im not sure i really wanna disturb the LM, I've NEVER worked with LM before and I have no idea how its done under there. I assume Asus has some masking on it like last year to stop it going anywhere it shouldnt, but never know what happens if i pull the thing apart Sorry to disappoint!
  10. Cause I need a new laptop and I dont mind being a guinea pig, Plus Best Buy return policy is pretty solid if I hit any issues Specifically I ordered the Ryzen 9 5900HS/3070 model. I'll be happy to answer any questions on it when I get it/review it for everyone if they like
  11. Right now I'd wait, if what AMD says is true? Then the Ryzen is definitely the way to go. Hard to anticipate stock right now however, I mean, I got my 3900X on launch day last year with no issues whatsoever..but after the 3080 if we end up with sneakerbots going after them as well it could get dicey.. I also would hope that AMD has been watching and is going to take steps to make sure everything goes better than before PCIe 3 vs 4 right now isnt making a big difference, but I'd argue that once we start seeing directstorage games coming out that are going to be streaming data off th
  12. Yes! You just pay the difference for the higher end card In fact Jacob at evga was even nudging people to do this if they had say, sold their old card in hopes of scoring a 3080 and couldn't so they could get their rig back up and running ASAP and get put in a line for a 3080
