    So yesterday I noticed that there was a rather huge stock of MSI RTX 3060 Ti GAMING X TRIOs so I ended up buying one. Should arrive next Monday. RTX 3080 prices are horrible at the moment and availability is poor. Also I'd get buyers remorse because it would have only 2GB of more VRAM while costing 400 € more for similar tier card. Power usage and how much heat they dump is another issue so I thought screw it, I'm going with a tad lower end card this time. It's still about 2x speedier than my soon-to-be-replaced GTX 1070.

    Today I also received my new 5900X so I can put everything ready. Just need to reuse my PSU, SSD and HDD. I have new NVMe drive for OS. Next year I'll dump the HDD at some point and buy another NVMe drive for games. Old SATA3 SSD will then handle my storage needs.

    I think 5900x will push it fine
    unless you mean the opposite,which is strange,cause one buys whatever gpu one needs.
    you don't need a 3090 SLI just cause you own a 5950X,3060Ti is more than fine for 1440p

    I too am looking forward to replacing a 1070 with a 3060Ti.

    Judging a card by vram only is silly,3080 has only 2GB more but tons of bandwidth,for 4K it's absolutely unparalelled.

    stop trolling just cause you've bought a ridiculously overpriced card that maybe does 10% more than 3080

    To be honest 5600x and 3080 would be much better system.

    It depends entirely what you do. 5900X does CPU heavy workloads much faster. 3080 doesn't increase gaming speed as much. Not willing to pay 2x more for 2GB of extra VRAM and the performance increase at 1440p isn't justified. It's also incredibly hard to buy those cards so this time I bought something that gives me really nice boost over my old GTX 1070 (2x performance increase isn't small jump). 5600X is a poor buy if you plan to keep your system for a long time and do some CPU heavy workloads from time to time. 5900X is "only" 200€ more than 5600X but you get a lot more for that extra money.

    I'm planning to keep my 5900X for quite some time. Just upgraded from 3770K... I'll likely switch to RTX 4080 when they come out though and give this to my brother or something. Meanwhile RTX 3060 Ti should handle 1440p just fine.

    EDIT:
    Just received sms that I can pick it up. Not bad, considering that they shipped it yesterday.

    yeah so many of 980ti/1080ti/3080 buyers simply couldn't afford the titan/3090
    how else would you explain they rejected a card that's so much better

    Keep it in English and stop with the pettiness and disparaging.

    If you don't own or plan on buying a 3060Ti leave the thread.

    glad we had that sorted out.p

    I'm a little disappointed with the lack of good options between $400 and $450 msrp.We've got tuf and trio,gaming oc from gigabyte is very good too on quiet bios,all at $450.Then at msrp there's palit dual and zotac twin edge,what's there to buy a $420 ?

    After some research it seems it's evga ftw3 ultra of all brands that's about $20 cheaper than tufs and trios,but can't find a review.

    @Hilbert Hagedoorn any evga reviews incoming ?

    @Anarion what temps are you getting with it and in what games? Also are you happy with the performance?

    I bought an Eagle OC one,as it was the only one i could find in stock,but it's temporary until 3080/6800 xt stock fills up,or maybe if i'm lucky a 6900 xt.

    I game at 1080p btw, only in RDR2 found it a bit lack luster, in forests fps drops under 50 at everything maxed, other than that its a powerful little card,curious how it will do in cyberpunk with RT.

    As for temps,mine reaches as high as 78,but its pretty silent even at 100%.

    I'd never buy a 6 core chip today, this is not 2017/2018
    Unless you are building a budget rig maybe

    Won't age well when next gen games hit in 2021/2022
    Consoles now has 8C/16T

    6C/12T on PC will see lower minimums for sure when these games hit, they will lack threads

    8c/16t it is the way to go but 6/12 is till fine as today. 5600x/3080 vs 5900x/3060 guess which system is faster? ;)

    I'd take 5800X and 3070/3080 any day, at 1440p the performance difference between 70 and 80 is not that huge, especially if you chase high fps and becomes more CPU bound but 3060 Ti is bare minimum IMO.

    I don't buy or recommend 6 core chips unless budget system that dont need to last for more than 1-2 years

    Just got my system up and running. One memory kit was defective and I didn't realise it quickly and took quite some time to figure out. Eventually tested the kits individually and found the problem.

    Only had time to try Genshin Impact. xD Maxed out GTX 1070 struggled with it at 1440p and GPU usage was 100% constantly. Not with this though. Fan curve is really conservative. Temperatures peaked at 65c while the clockspeeds were ~2GHz give or take few mhz with small overclock (gotta up it a bit). Maximum fan RPM was 1026 - couldn't hear it. It should be possible to keep it around 60c without much noise at all with custom fan curve. Actually... The fan starts spinning at 60c.
