    Who is buying a 3090?

    Don't get any ideas. We don't want sign supply to be constrained, as well!

    Who is buying a 3090?

    Yeah - first time playing my favorite game (ARK: Survival Evolved) for an extended duration last night - I can't say that I could really tell the difference (coming from 2080 Ti FE) despite the stats showing big FPS gains. :) Playing on an Alienware AW3418DW @ 3440x1440/120Hz. Common sense said...

    RTX 2080 Ti FE to RTX 3090 FE - My Exp (Some Benches and $$$ Numbers)

    Same thing happened to me at $1K. DOH! Oh well. Very happy to get that price. Finally did a bunch of gaming last night, note (all stock, using system above, playing ARK: Survival Evolved): - 350W max GPU power - 63 C max temp - Note the "Performance Limits" hit...curious...

    Did Nvidia Cancel the RTX 3080 20gb and RTX 3070 16gb

    Yes, that's why there are very few $700 cards (outside of FE) - because there is less profitability at that price range. AIBs had to go over that mark for 95% of their cards to expand their profit. Note that it is near impossible to get a $700 card today. It gets easier as you go higher in the...

    Did Nvidia Cancel the RTX 3080 20gb and RTX 3070 16gb

    The rumor was the 20GB existed for AIBs to squeeze more profit out of the 3080...because the 3080 as-is is not as profitable for AIB as in the past.

    Yeah - big gap between 3080 and 3090 rn...that makes sense.

    RTX 3090 FE Coil Whine?

    I have that same AX1000 PSU - let me know what I can test. Unfortunately, I do not have RDR2 - you're welcome to buy it for me. ;)

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    I mean, haven't we all realized that any $$$ over the base, standard MSRP card is not really worth it unless you're an extreme overclocker? So yeah, TUF seems to be the real winner of this. I'd still consider the XC3 Ultra because it's 1) EVGA and 2) potentially more available via the queue...

    Palit Gaming Pro 3090 or Gaming Oc Gigabyte 3090?

    You can do whatever you like! I keep my balanced/default. It still saws frames like crazy. I could change it but I haven't seen a need to do so. I am happy your 750W is more than enough. I run a 650W with a 2080 and a 5820K on one of my boxes. It's also a high quality PSU. Don't let yourself...

    RTX 2080 Ti FE to RTX 3090 FE - My Exp (Some Benches and $$$ Numbers)

    Yeah, the people buying them are likely using them for more than just gaming purposes. Since NVIDIA stopped making the 20xx series and the 30xx series has been scarce, it has created a perfect storm for those that are lucky enough to get a 30xx card...good re-sale in the used market.

    Palit Gaming Pro 3090 or Gaming Oc Gigabyte 3090?

    Compare your results to my results and see? You can directly compare graphics results so it is apples to apples. I was just linking to information, but not doing all of the legwork for you. :p

    Palit Gaming Pro 3090 or Gaming Oc Gigabyte 3090?

    Here are my 3DMark results. Remember - systems vary. With my 9900KS I probably score a tiny bit better in some regard. I had my setup all default - so maybe I need to change to full performance, myself.

    Palit Gaming Pro 3090 or Gaming Oc Gigabyte 3090?

    Yeah, if you're that stressed - sell your 750W and buy a new PSU. That Tom's Hardware article I linked says 750W is fine for your i7 plus 3090. So - not only do you meet minimum requirements, you have a top of the line 750W PSU - so you are A-OK. You can also head over to the jonnyguru forums...

    Palit Gaming Pro 3090 or Gaming Oc Gigabyte 3090?

    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidias-rtx-3000-power-supply-requirements-PSU-shortage-2020 Not true. You have an i7. Even if you had an i9 - although it recommends 850W - that is assuming that you have some "standard" PSU. The Seasonic PSU that you have is one of the finest out there...so...

    RTX 2080 Ti FE to RTX 3090 FE - My Exp (Some Benches and $$$ Numbers)

    Sorry, to be more clear: $1,289.22 RTX 2080 Ti FE @ NVIDIA (purchased 09/28/2018) minus $858.18 RTX 2080 Ti FE sold @ eBay ($999.95 + $27.25 S&H charged - fees) equals $431.04 cost of owning 2080 Ti FE for ~ 2 years (365 days * 2 years = 730 days; $431.04 divided by 730 days equals $0.59 per...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Yeah. 7nm is non-news to a certain degree. Of course 3080 Ti and even 3090 Ti will exist. They are just arming the chamber to keep annihilating AMD and keep selling cards to those that have to have the best.

    Palit Gaming Pro 3090 or Gaming Oc Gigabyte 3090?

    Yeah, that's a very high end 750W PSU - you're good. People have been pulling it off on solid 650W units.

    RTX 2080 Ti FE to RTX 3090 FE - My Exp (Some Benches and $$$ Numbers)

    Yeah - or wait until the 3080 20GB comes out in late November. :) I personally had to go 3090 because I'm a "best" whore - since you have a Titan V I am guessing you're in the same boat (and even more). :)

    Used GPU Market Crash of 2020

    Thank you. He has over 1,500 feedback - so I'm hoping so. I always fully insure it and require signature at delivery, plus I have methods of encouraging people who are trying to do me wrong, do go back to doing right. :) I think $725 isn't too bad. You're right - eBay is about $850 after...

    Used GPU Market Crash of 2020

    Got $999.95 plus $27 in S&H yesterday selling my 2080 Ti FE on eBay...I think the low, low price fantasy is idiot sellers that thought they could snag their card of choice early. The 2080 Ti has a lot of users out there that aren't just gamers...

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    I got mine thanks to a Best Buy in-stock email alert (of all things) - but it makes sense after reading that NVIDIA is using them as their official etailer until they can get their store's act together. Both trackers I was using didn't even peep about Best Buy's stock, and when I went to buy I...

    RTX 2080 Ti FE to RTX 3090 FE - My Exp (Some Benches and $$$ Numbers)

    Hi all, Finally copped an RTX 3090 FE in last Friday's (10/09/2020) Best Buy drop...yesterday I benched my exact system with the outgoing RTX 2080 Ti FE and did the same afterwards with the new RTX 3090 FE (same OS level and patches, same NVIDIA driver, etc - nothing changed other than slapping...

    Micro Center Intel CPU prices have SKYROCKETED!

    I saw this happen just before Black Friday with the 9900KS - went from $569.99 (and an add'l $30 off when paired with certain mobos) to $699.99 (same $30 off) then as Black Friday hit to $599.99 with add'l $20 off with certain mobos (and that's where it sat until it sold out). I wonder if they...

    This page is still up: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/processors/core/x-series/i9-10920x.html Interesting that it is pulled from ARK. It is listed for sale at other places but sold out.

    It says 6 in stock. I am guessing they will all be sold by year end (nationwide). 6 took a few days at my MN location.

    9900K or wait for KS?

    OK. I couldn't imagine anyone buying a 9900K today. It would make sense to get a 9900KS or go a step down to 9700K if it's a dollars issue. "Big" is relative when you're talking about top dog gaming performance. Even the 8700K could hang with the 9900K in most gaming workloads. Beyond all of...

    9900K or wait for KS?

    I mean, ~$100 more for guaranteed 5GHz all cores with zero overclocking. That's pretty big. You can compare OC to OC all day but for me OC is a bonus. I personally like that the security stuff is on the chip too, no need for OS mitigations. Although I know that it slows things down a bit (ref...

    9900K or wait for KS?

    It is when you're building a PC today. Why bother with a 9900K if KS is available? EDIT: my MicroCenter is almost out of them (Minneapolis) - https://www.microcenter.com/product/615497/intel-core-i9-9900ks-coffee-lake-40-ghz-lga-1151-processor - it's going to be a limited release because yeah...
