G-sync a deciding factor?

Hi all,

 

Looking to upgrade my GTX970 to either a RTX3080 or AMD "Big Navi".  Do you think G-sync should be a big deciding factor on switch card to buy? If Big Navi and the RTX3080 are close enough in performance, would I be missing a lot not using G-sync? I bought my monitor base on SRGB/Adobe RGB coverage and the 120Hz it can run at. The G-sync was a bonus at the time. Just wondering your thoughts. thanks.

Personally, I cant really game without it. When I tweak things and test different setups, I cringe at screen tearing now.. before I ever had a Gsync/Freesync monitor.. it never really bothered me or I never really noticed it.. but now?? its not something I think I could game without anymore.

I'd say an adaptive framerate monitor is a must for me. If you're not willing to sell your monitor to instead get a FreeSync and GSync compatible one, then maybe best to stick with Nvidia. If you're willing to change monitor, you're no longer restricted by monitor compatibility.

For me it's not a deciding factor. I won't not buy a monitor just because it doesn't have G-sync/freesync. If I experience screen tearing, I would just lock the framerate in game to what my system can handle and set my monitor's refresh rate to the same hertz.

If you already have the G-Sync monitor and intend to keep it, might as well just go with the 3080.

You might as well.

Everyone says wait for big navi, but every year everyone says wait for AMD but we always end up being disappointed.

 

I doubt AMD can match the 3080, heck right now they can't even match the 2080ti.

For me, it's the greatest computer tech invention since SSDs came along. It makes a huge difference in gaming. I can't imagine going back to a fixed rate monitor.

 

Just don't get the cheaper, old type TN panel!
