So I'm looking to get a 30 series card. I'm hoping to get a 3080, maybe a 3080 ti, and i just want to get some info as to if my build would be enough for one. More specifically, I'm looking at the GIGABYTE Vision OC GeForce RTX 3080 10GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card GV-N3080VISION OC-10GD (rev. 2.0) (LHR). Will my build be enough to handle it? I'm more worried about the psu, cause i remember there being a problem where the cards were needed more power than advertised, like a 1000 watt, and i don't know if they had fixed that yet or not. Any and all tips will help!

You'd be good with your PSU, 850W is enough for a 5800X+3080ti (100W CPU +400W GPU + 100 for the rest is only 600W max)


Regarding your build, the cooler is really expensive .. You could also save some money with not much drawbacks by getting a 5700X

Unless you are all in on the bling of the AIO cooler, a noctua u12 in black is half the cost and at least as good

Yes your PSU should be fine, i run an i9 and a 2080ti off a 750 with no problems. The 10gb 3080 should be fine, if you notice an issue you can always just swap PSU's.
