Gonna wait for 3080ti with 20gb coming in Jan 2021 hopefully better stock. They are predicting 1000 bucks (1600 bucks in Canada) seems it will be sweet spot for price. Only difference is less ram and no nvlink. Rest is identical.

I'll have to see if I keep this on Wednesday next week depending on RX6000 reviews.

I got mine today from the Best Buy drop last week. Edit: Here is a picture of the box like everyone else is showing instead of my dusty case. My computer did crash and restarted when playing MS Flight Simulator 2020 but with no other games. I might have to upgrade my Corsair HX 850 watt power supply.

I got mine today from the Best Buy drop last week. Way bigger and heavier than I thought. Feels like a large power brick. Pictures don't do it justice. I had a 1080 and so far I'm getting 2.5 times the framerates. Wanted a 3080 but all I could get was the 3090. I know it's dusty, the cable management is poor, and I'm going to be slowed down by my 8700K. Will upgrade in the future. It fits in my HAF X case but I had to take the side panel fan shroud off. The corsair HX850 seems to be holding up. No computer crashes yet.

If you are tossing a new GPU in there why not just also spray the thing out with compressed air while you’re at it? That thing looks like it should’ve been cleaned months if not years ago.

My favorite investment from 5+ years ago...I use it anytime I put in new hardware. I drag my case outside and spray like mad:

Metro Vacuum ED500P DataVac 500-Watt, 0.75-HP Electric Duster​



I dropped that same model from 5 feet(on accident) and all it did was dent the metal and continue functioning great. Definitely a great purchase and beats buying canned air.

Got my EVGA notice today but passed as I was able to get a 3080 at Newegg. Its ($1800+) just too much for a video card.

I've used the same thing for around 5 years now, it's one of those items that if it eventually goes bad I wouldn't hesistate replacing it with the same model. It's saved me hundreds on canned air.
