MY EYES HAVE BEEN OPENED!

 I have had a ps4 since 2014 and I have been in love with the graphics on it. I thought it, outside of resolution, it was the best it could get this gen. 

 

Then I built a PC. 

 

Holy Linus' beard was I wrong. 

 

Marvel's Avengers in 4k on Ultra literally made feel like I have been asleep for the past 2 years. I had no idea that there was still such a huge gap in graphical quality. I was anxiously anticipating "Next Gen" Console graphics when they have been on PC the entire time. 

 

People really don't know to what extent they are limited visually on console. Youtube comparison vids don't do it justice. With the announcement of the 30 series rtx cards, it's highly likely that this will continue to be the case with the PS5/SeriesX  

 

I say ALL of this to say, 

 

Holy sh*& PC gaming rocks.

i mean, you're also paying way more for the hardware, so...

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

True but in my opinion it's worth it. My point though was that I didn't think that level of graphical quality was possible on any platform yet. 

 

Boy was I blind.

when your adrenaline dies down from this upgrade, get a high refresh rate monitor

you'll love the lower input lag of monitor compared to TVs, and high refresh rate is a game changer

 

sad consoles stuck on 30hz for the most part lol

 

in MHW, there's a combo you can use in PC version but not console version, because they lack the FPS to do it

Ouch. If you bought the 2080 ti recently I'd return it. 3070 is coming out for half the price and it's going to be faster

Judging by your build, looks like you have quite a bit of money. I'd get a nice 144Hz monitor like a LG27GL850-B next. The high refresh rate, smoothness and low input lag will blow your mind even more than a visual graphics quality upgrade. After you experienced 144Hz, you won't be able to go back.

Actually no, I don't have money. I had some savings that I used in conjunction with a hefty refund check to make it possible. It will probably take me months to save up for the 3080.

Trust me, a upgrade to a nice monitor will be much more worth it than the upgrade from 2080Ti to 3080.

I see what you are saying. I just wonder how much refresh rate really matters for a gamer like me who mainly plays single player games. I think 40-60 fps feels plenty good especially if what i am looking at is incredibly immersive. Know what I mean?

I mostly play singleplayer or slower games like RPG's and Strategy games aswell. Also i'm all out on eye candy and intend to turn on RTX whereever possible as soon as i get my 3080 aswell. But still i don't want to miss out on high refresh rate anymore. No matter what game. Imo this will give you another huge jump in immersion.

You know what I think after I upgrade my ssd and I manage to save up for the 3080, my next goal will be a high refresh rate monitor.

Monitors are not ridiculously expensive. For a great entry-level 144Hz monitor you can have the AOC 24G2 for ~180$. For a great high-end 1440p 144Hz monitor you can get a LG 27GN850 for ~430$. It's easier than saving up 699$ for a 3080 ;)

Seeing as I currently game in 4k, going down to 1440p and not being able to run next gen games, is hard for me to reconcile. I will think on it and consider your suggestion.

I do it this way:

Most strategy games and the few multiplayer games i play are played on my 1440p 144Hz monitor.

RPGs or story-based games are played on my 4K 120Hz OLED TV with HDR.

This way i get the best possible experience in any game ;)

 

Another side note: If looking at a monitor around 27", 4K is not noticeably sharper than 1440p. Plus you can have much higher fps at 1440p.

As you already have a 2080Ti i don't see your problem. To this date it is still the single fastest GPU. This will last another few years and will certainly run new titles.

My order would be SSD > monitor > new GPU.

Assuming you currently have only HDD. Jump by just one GPU generation won't give you that much.

And if you already have some kind of SSD, then the order would change to: monitor > GPU > SSD.

144Hz or even 240Hz (highly unlikely to buy IPS for a decent price) will surprise you with it's smoothness. This will give you a lot more compared to just few FPS ;).
