Whoa! You just took me back in time. I had an Epox 8kha+ that I ran with an Opteron 165 @2.8. That was when I joined [H] in fact. Played the original Bioshock on it. One of my favorite computers ever. Upgraded to a Q9550 afterwards.
I'm going to stick with my 2080ti because it's awesome for now until an AIB comes out that I like enough to replace the 2080ti. I really doubt yield will be there for everyone who wants a new card on launch day. Not trying to be a downer but I'd be surprise if supply met demand.
