Got my card! So far so good, except my i5-8600 is bottlenecking me at times..lol! Apex Legends, 1440p maxed out, my CPU can do 100% runs for several minutes at a time, to which my FPS drops down round 100FPS (144Mhz monitor) Now i need to find a 5000 series AMD cpu and build out that side i guess

I got a Nitro + SE but I wanted a 6900. So far it's a pretty decent card although it is a behemoth! I think it was worried it wouldn't fit in my Corsair Crystal 280x case but it fit no problem! Even has about a 1/2 in. left!

That's exactly how I feel with my 6700K now that I have an RX 6800.

In case anybody is wondering the Nitro + SE totally fits inside a Corsair Crystal 280X micro ATX case with about a 1/2 in. to spare.

This is long but I am so excited!

I decided to start getting parts for a new build today. Ordered a LL lancool II mesh performance and a 850 watt Seasonic psu.
Called up my friend to see if he wanted to make the run to the MN Micro Center. We got there around 3:30 pm. I went right to the video card section to see if they happened to get any cards in and if they had any left in stock. I had my list of other parts to buy if I could get a new video card.

To my surprise they had two 6800's and 3 5700 XT's, one 3090 and a couple of 3070's. There was one person waiting for an employee to get one of the 6800's, they were going for $930. I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend that much on a 6800 so I stood there and thought about it. I really had my heart set on a 6800 XT but knew how hard these are to get. Then my buddy came and got me to help make sure he was getting the correct ssd for his system and I left the 6800 behind.

I decided that yes, I will buy that last 6800. I finished helping my friend and went to get a salesman to get it for me and he was already getting it for someone else.
Bummer for me. I got to talking with the salesman and he told me they could maybe have something up front, I guess some people put it on a hold and if they don't buy it in an hour or so the staff puts it back in the cabinet. I went about looking at other items as I started to think I could just buy everything now and put in the old 660 ti I have.

The salesman came and found me after a few minutes and he had a 6800 XT for me! I was like wow, awesome! So I went about working with him to get a MB, ram and cpu and a drive. I had decided to just get a 3600 because the 5600X and 5800X were sold out. He said wait a minute and disappeared for a few minutes.
He came back with a 5600X!

So in my first trip to Micro Center since May I scored a 5600X and a 6800 XT! God dam lucky I was today. The 6800 XT did cost a bit though, $1,030.00, but I got one.
Spent around $2,450 all sad and done. In my excitement I forgot to buy a windows key. But I can worry about that later.
Tomorrow I will start the build, so happy right now.

@IKV1476 You lucky bastard!

I don't know about the bent fins mine are a little off I guess but you really can't tell unless you're looking for it or taking high res pics,

Awsome and ouch. When you talk about 1030 is that before or after taxes? Which model was that?
