    While i'm sure you really enjoy your headphone setup, but anyone who purchases something as useless as unobtanium 3m silver cables for the low low price of $400-500 and thinks its a great deal, yet has an issue with spending a half that in extra on a graphics card is just kind of... how should i say it.... :confused:

    While what is considered as low or high price is subjective, let's get few facts out of the way.
    • NVIDIA spends ~5 billion dollars PER GENERATION on R&D. Most of that gets used in GeForce products.
    • Something like zero USD went into R&D for your cable.
    • 2080 Ti comes with at least $300 worth of components.
    • Cable BoM is $10 USD if we're generous.
    Congrats on headphones! They must be something else; truly. But cable... gimme a break dog :D
    If you paid more than $50 for that cable, 2080 Ti is a steal in comparison.

    You missed the bit where it will last at least 20 years, not in the same league.
    Why its worth having I posted below ;)

    Cheers, but please try before saying such things.

    One of the major pluses of this headphone is the sheer amount of micro detail.
    Silver cable exposes a ton more micro detail.
    You can imagine what silver cable does when combined with these headphones, it really is spectacular!
    It wasnt wasted money I assure you.
