    Anyone backorder 3080 RTX through Tiger Direct ?

    Has anyone placed an order through Tiger Direct for a 3080 RTX? It appears you can place an order, they will ship it as soon as stock is available. I used to buy PC parts from Tiger Direct back in the days when they had a large presence like Newegg. Did anyone have any success in getting a...

    Hello all, I am slowing selecting parts for my new build and decided on AMD 5900x with x570 Taichi motherboard. This pc is primarily for gaming. Can anyone suggest which DDR4 memory I should consider without breaking the bank (no more than $130, if possible). Considering 32 gb of ram...

    6700k paired with 3080 (bottleneck?)

    After reading everyone’s feedback, I thinking I’m going to stick with my system for now and just replace the graphics card. I’m going to try to overclock it a bit more...maybe to 4.8 and see how it runs on my 4K tv. I will re-evaluate, see what amd has to offer and upgrade if need be.

    6700k paired with 3080 (bottleneck?)

    Thanks for the replies. I’ll probably wait til AMDs new cpu announcement, read up on some benchmarks before I decide to overhaul the system or upgrade just the GPUs.

    560 ti 2win (Your thoughts?)

    I was wonder what you thought were on the 560ti 2 win for those running on single monitor (1900x1080 max res)....Its essential two 560 ti in one. They are 30% fasters than GTX 580 and cost about the same $500. The only downside is 1gb vram.
