    Who uses a 3090 for 1080 and 1440? And.....why give two shits about the menu screen? Damn.....

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I could cover my 3080 with 2 packs of EKWB pads, cost me 6 bucks a pack. I want to say, 1.5 mm thick. So 6 bucks is roughly 24 zl, right? The putty is widely used, I guess because its thick. Not really reuseable. Thermal putty is 12 dollars for 20g more than enough ...... so all for 80 zl. From...

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I agree. You fussed with doing all this junk with fans, complain over and over about the thermal pad gap and then dont fix it. I also dont get the constant complaining about ASUS. They tested your gpu, what else should they do? The gpu works fine. Even your local shop says so. By the way, did...

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I dont see any issue either. Also, the card isnt running when you take the photo. As it operates and heats up any expansion in the pcb would increase contact at that point.

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I still think you have displaced your anger. Again, ASUS tested your card and it's fine. You posted results after they looked at it and all the temperatures are fine, in fact lower. The thermal pads look fine. I hear nothing on the video you made. Even with a cell phone, if my wife had her...

    3080 Ti @ $1299 ???

    That is very true and a very popular misconception. nvidia sells chips and I suppose engineering support for PCB construction. If the price goes up after the scalpers get ahold of the product, nvidia sees no benefit. Sure if the product is crazy in demand, nvidia sells all their chips and...

    3080 Ti @ $1299 ???

    Given the 2 year plague of low stock, I would say now is the time to grab the best you can.....that said, who knows what prices will do in a month when all the usual resellers have boatloads of stock. Given the scalping on the release of the 3080s, and the difficulty to buy one, Id bet we'll see...

    3080 xc3 Ultra Gaming status?

    Hahaha......Im in the same boat. I queued up in Oct 2020, nothin. EVGA shifted me to a LHR version queue. EVGA seems to have put all their energy into the FTW3 cards. That said, Im seeing more and more stock for sale over the last 10 days, but I hold out no hope for the queue. I finally bought a...

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I dont think in this case ASUS has any fault. First, you say yourself, that gaming is fine, no issues. Second, the shop and ASUS tested your card and found no issue. Third, your fan curve is not appropiate. I think your anger is misdirected. If the heatsink bothers you, buy some damn pads and...

    Far Cry 6

    I uninstalled the game. First, bad game. Second, crashed frequently, froze up, just a poorly implemented game.

    You can get power supply reviews from Paul Johnson on theFPSreview. They don't do as many, but same guy and pretty much the same format. I still come here a couple times a week to look at for sale stuff. I sell things actually quite successfully here from time to time still. I'd love to see...

    EVGA RTX 3080 FTW Ultra......for sale, Brand new.

    Ebay sale by my son. Brand new unopened, sealed. He already bought one last year. Took a year in the queue. Fair price......cost him 1000 once paid for tax and shipping.

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    LoL.....elite..... I queued up for a 3080 xc3 in early October and Im still waiting. Plus theres no way of knowing where you might be in the line. Its a nice try, but not at all transparent. Plus the cheaper, basic cards are almost extinct.

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    Ammunition is fairly easy to understand......there are around 6 million new gun owners since March 2020, the makers of ammunition simply can't make enough to supply the new guys and the usual customers. I guess silicone is the same....GPUs are nonexistant except at wildly inflated prices, which...

    Geforce 7800 GTX SLI using different cards

    You can use any 2 gpu as long as they are the same model..... ie 2 980 Ti. Doesnt matter who made them. Dont forget the SLi bridge.

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    So here we are.......6 months in and you can't find a new GPU anywhere for even a modest jack over MSRP (Im talking etail, not eBay) What the hell happened? poor production? poor planning? sudden demand? lack of parts? "the COVID" greed? what is the truth Mulder?

    Official EVGA Ampere Queue Thread

    LoL........ I went in the queue 16 October for a 3080 UC3 Black (3881) I dont think it has gone anywhere past 16 September yet. The next generation of GPU will be released before I get this one......if ever.

    Should the 5700xt be considered one of the greatest of all time?

    Due to the current market conditions, this card, the 5700 XT is what I use to game currently. It has honestly held it's own at 1440p to my surprise. It did replace a R290X which was a stout card as well. Is it a GOAT like the GTX 8800 or 1080 it is not. I'd love a 6800XT but.......LoL

    yup. Like always. I mean 30 bucks more over the MSRP.......this is shitty. I did see the plain Sapphire for MSRP......but SHIT, there's no stock......WTF. Can only hope AMD gets some stock.

    Which 6800/xt AIB Card Do you want? Poll with pics

    I looked at the plain MSI it looks identical to the AMD card. Im shooting for that one. EK already has reference full xover blocks.

    Which 6800/xt AIB Card Do you want? Poll with pics

    I don't give a shit as long as I can buy ONE....any ONE......I'd like the Reference model to be honest. The heat sink is coming off and a block is going on anyway, and I fucking hate disco lights.

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    Id say the scalpers once again ran the table, at least for 6800 XT. Why cant these smart tech people figure out a way to fuck the bots? Should be simple. 1 purchase every 30 minutes per person. Thanks FrgMstr for the encouraging news. This situation is getting discouraging. First ammo, now...

    Everything is gone again?

    You need to go over to FPS Review and read the Watch Dogs new review. The game needed over 8 GB of memory to run all the features. Sure it's one game, but it has all the bells and whistles. I think the 3080 with 10 GB isn't going to be enough soon. Thats where the new AMD stuff is going to be...
