    Actually screw it, I don't care what might come out later. I'll buy RTX 3080 FE since it seems to have passive mode. 12-core Ryzen 4000 build later this year.

    I just got a 2070S from my old 1070 which was a nicer performance increase than I expected (thanks stimulus check) so I probably won’t get a 3K card.

    I'm not decided now what to get, mind telling me get 3080 makes sense, heart telling me get 3090 hahaha

    Friend just yesterday sold his Asus RTX 2080Ti Strix for £500 and I'm literally not looking to sell my RTX 2080Ti, it will be reused or paired with RTX 3xxx series

    If I upgrade then maybe sometimes next year and hopefully then here will be Super version with bigger VRAM, 24GB of VRAM would help me in rendering, let's see


    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I'm gonna pick up while we're waiting a 'Power Meter Plug Monitor' to measure exact watts my pc pulls from the wall.
    They're only £12 odd, i've 'downclocked' my 10700k to 5ghz at 1.2v and plan to run a 3080 at stock on a 650w platinum.:):oops:

    RTX 3090 for me, will wait for reviews before deciding on whether to go for an FE or AIB card.

    Interested in seeing how the cooler on the FE card does as I really like the look of it.

    No doubt it'll be a 4k60fps monster, i'm a little worried about the 10gb on the 3080 so i may go evga and try step-up to something better within 3 months.

    I am definitely upgrading to a 3070 card. I am probably going to go Zotac and get one of their smaller cards since I own one of those poorly designed X570 boards where they have the stupid chipset fan right in line with the 1st GPU slot. 2 ways of getting around it is either purchase a case that supports vertical GPU mounting or get a smaller card. And I am getting a smaller card.

    It's settled! I'm going for the 3080. If there comes a revised version in 6-12 months from now i can sell my 3080 and do a little upgrade.

    Will be really interesting to see how difficult it will be to sell used 20xx series cards compared to 10xx. I can only imagine prices will take a big hit.

    Here’s the thing, if you get a 3080 now then 2-3 years down the road you can spend that extra saved money on a card that’s even better than the 3090.

    I was thinking building a specifically a gaming rig in the future, Due to all of my time is heavily invested in 4-way sli tuning, I do play games but alot of my time is tuning. Would love to sit back and give it a break and play a game or two.

    I might wait for the refresh to come about, but really looking into the 3090 at this point.
