  1. im looking to spend at most $750 usd, and i will get the 3080 FE when prices and stock become normal. i plan to play stuff like doom eternal, rdr2, cyberpunk 2077, and csgo. And i already said what the resolution and framerate i want to play at is.
  2. i plan on buying an rtx 3080 for my build to upgrade from my old gtx 970, im wondering if its worth it to spend this much on a gpu. I have enough for it but idk if its worth the extra $200 over a 3070 for my setup. cpu: r5 2600 overclocked to 3.7ghz i have a 1080p 280hz monitor and a 4k 60hz monitor, i will switch between them depending on what game im playing.
  3. yes it is a 2 slot gpu. I will have to look for more precise measurements on the 3070. But i will also look at getting a vertical mount if it still wont fit
  4. i edited a pic with a better angle into the post. and i might be able to get rid of one of the sata cables, its connected to an old hdd that i dont use, i have an nvme drive and my other drive is a 2tb sshd that needs sata so i can only get rid of one.
  5. i probably didnt get a great picture cuz i used my phone ill get a better one and edit it into the post. I have a 1080p 60hz monitor and a 4k 60hz monitor. and i plan on getting a 1080p 240hz monitor after i upgrade my gpu, and i plan on getting a 3070 and the one im looking at is 2.5 slot. And my cpu is a ryzen 5 2600 overclocked to 3.7ghz
  6. i cheaped out on my motherboard when i got it and got a micro atx motherboard so theres cables right under my current 2 slot gpu, idk if a 2.5 slot will fit in my system. If it doesnt fit i might be able to get a vertical mount thing but i need to know if i can fit a 2.5 slot gpu in my system
  7. 8gb should be fine, but if he runs lots of stuff in the background he might lose some performance. And if he decides to play games in the future that demand more than 8gb of ram he will want to upgrade to 16gb.
  8. Im getting a 240hz monitor soon and im wondering if i should use my current hdmi cable(hdmi 2.0) or switch to displayport (a displayport cable comes with my monitor). Is one better than the other or will i not notice any difference between them?
  9. I found this one on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/AOC-C27G2Z-Frameless-Ultra-Fast-Adjustable/dp/B088LG2BSW/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=+&qid=1605936331&refinements=p_n_feature_fifteen_browse-bin%3A17751810011%2Cp_n_feature_eleven_browse-bin%3A17726573011&rnid=17726572011&s=pc&sr=1-5 It looks pretty good and i saw a review on youtube, and they said it was good for the price.
  10. Hello, I only have a 60hz monitor and i really need to upgrade it, im wondering if a 240hz (1080p) monitor is worth it over a 144hz (1080p) monitor, because 240hz much more expensive than 144hz and i want to know if its worth the extra 100-150 usd.
  11. I have told you MANY reasons. It translates to me wanting to stay with nvidia after using their gpus since my first pc In 2010 and having very few issues over that time. and yes I understand that the 6800 xt might be able to overclock a bit further, but I’ve already established that I do not plan on overclocking. And I am not a “fanboi” just because I’m hesitant to switch to different kind of gpu that I have no experience with, and I have stated my many reasons for why i plan on staying with nvidia and buying a 3080.
  12. I prefer nvidia because I have had good experiences with nvidia since I built my first pc in 2010. Not because I am a “fanboi”. I have reasons for being hesitant to buy an amd gpu Yes, it may have a lower tdp and be able to overclock further, but I told you my reasons for why I still would prefer a 3080.
  13. I need a gpu that works and doesn’t run hot/loud and doesn’t have any problems. That’s why I don’t plan on overclocking, and if I do in the future, nvidia has an auto overclocking feature in msi afterburner. If I wanted to overclock I might choose the 6800 xt but right now I would rather buy a 3080.
  14. Those power ratings are at stock, if I overclock them they will be hotter than that. And my psu is 750w so power draw isn’t an issue.
  15. I’ve never had a single driver related issue with my 970 in the last 4 or 5 years I’ve had it. And i don’t really want to overclock even then because they are both 300+ watt gpus and I don’t have great airflow in my case so both of them will run hotter and/or be louder. I know some aspects of the 6800xt are better but I want a gpu that I’m confident won’t have any issues.
