    Question about the ports on the card. It's hdmi, then 3 dp ports. What one is dp port #1?

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    Bagged myself an EVGA 3080 XC3 Ultra today off Facebook Marketplace. Guy was selling it for -RETAIL-. Jumped on it and here I am. Now what?

    So.....who's buying a 3070?

    After being burnt on their absolute garbage GPUs 4 card generations in a row, it's safe to say any dedicated gpu AMD comes out with is going to be a pile of junk. They've not demonstrated even once that they should be continued to be considered a quality gpu manufacturer.

    Saving up for 4080 RTX?

    Yeah, if there were other gpu solutions out there, I'd never touch another Nvidia card for the rest of my life. Hate the company, hate their bad business practices and specifically hate them taking advantage of consumers by charging top dollar for 15% performance increase every two fucking years.

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    Just wait, they will get stock in mysteriously a day before all the larger vram models show up. Nvidia is fleecing an entire generation of computer enthusiasts on the regular. Manufacturered shortages, purposesly giving bad specs to 3rd party manufacturers, the list goes on and on.

    Saving up for 4080 RTX?

    I have a feeling that Nvidia is pushing a failed gpu as well. AND they are double dipping. Releasing cards early with defects AND a misery vram amount. After 6 months of selling shit cards, they going to come out with larger vram cards at 20% more cost and all the chumps who bought early are...

    Who is buying a 3090?

    Lol. Out of stock for regular consumers until 2nd quarter next year or later

    So.....who's buying a 3070?

    I fully expect OOS until second quarter next year. If there was any company other than Nvidia, I'd never ever shop Nvidia again.

    Saving up for 4080 RTX?

    I'm 100% convinced that the 3080 is a ghost card. Regular consumers will never see this card on shelves. I predict Nvidia coming out with another series cards before they manufacturers come close to supplying demand. Im just going to wait for 4080 while starting an annuity and bots for the 5080...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    I fully expect not to see a 30x0 card for 5 to 6 months, but by then bot will buy up all the larger vram models. I'd say 6 to 10 months before we see ANY 30x0 on physical shelves, and 100% it's going to be the low vram cards no one will want.

    The Great RTX 3080 Scalping event has begun!

    All this has basically soured my love for PC gaming. Companies are just soulless profiteering monsters. Selling my rig and just leaving all this behind me. The companies, the rabid fans, the profiteering, it's all about money now and not about games.

    Presuming I can get a 3080 by Christmas... (GSync / FreeSync question)

    No 3080/3090s until late first quarter 2021. Maybe even early summer.

    Dear Nvidia,

    Answer is simple, don't buy nvidia. Fuck Jensen and his questionable profiteering business. That prick in a leather jacket has been busted multple times for shittty and questionable business practices. This is one of them.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Lies. Bots will take all these cards out within seconds. I fully suspect to not see a 30x0 card anywhere in stock for purchase until at least next year.

    Potential RTX 3000 buyers...what monitors will you be driving?

    Asus XG438Q 4k HDR @ 120hz. Hope to get a 3080.

    Who is buying a 3080 and 3090?

    Asus z370i Strix ITX PCIE Lane Use?

    I've occupied both M2 slots with an NVME drive and the system has a video card in it. What should I be getting for the gfx card? 16x right? Or is the pcie lane shared with the m2 drives? That means 2x 4 lanes = 8 then only 8 left for the primary card, correct?

    Cryorig Taku Cooling in tropic weather. Solutions?

    So I built myself a fancy lil Taku itx machine. However it needs a crazy slim HSF or a Corsair H60 wedged inside (as seen in other builds). Max height is 48mm, or something a little bigger with a slim fan. You guys got any suggestions for a good slim HSF?

    Far Cry 5 - $24.00 - Uplay Store

    This is what I gathered after playing 5 for about 5-6 hours. The open world is a natural evolution of 3 and 4's. The forced mission stuff feels a lot like Far Cry 2, pretty heavy handed at times ala 'malaria pills'. The story is a love it or hate it, I personally love shooting up crazy ass...

    Lukewarm: Steam Winter Sale [H]as started

    I noticed a few AAA titles are already heavily discounted. BFV, BLOPS and more are down to 30 dollar range. Could account for no super sales on Steam. That and they didnt have time to bust a nut from the gains on the Fall sale!
