Its a pot luck on the male and model, but it's all mainstream cards from Palit, Zotac, gigabyte, Evga etcCan anyone confirm what this make is exactly? “NVIDIA® GEFORCE® RTX 30 SERIES GRAPHICS CARDS (Not Reference Design)”
Not sure if this is just some cheap RTX knockoff or if it’s a legitimate make (it’s from the upgrade tab on PC Specialist website
Aye, I should be good on my ASU’s TUF VG289QMake sure you've got a monitor that can support it if it's for gaming.
That's a 4k 60hz, not much point in the 3080, it wouldn't be used.Aye, I should be good on my ASU’s TUF VG289Q
Now I just need to find a work around on the PSU option as I bought one cheaper but this website won’t let me order the new one as it thinks I still have a old one installed
Those are previous Gen and aren't made anymore, the 3070 would be suitable, 3070ti if they're not in stock.What would you suggest? I was originally thinking 2070 or 2070 ti but saw the price difference and didn’t think it was worth going for the lower given the cost difference
What do you need the VRAM for? VRAM is only useful if it's going to be used, for 4k 60, there's no requirement for it.I’ve read it’s probably better to go with the 3080 considering the slight improvements to VRAM.
Even if it was to future proof?
There's no such thing as futureproofing a GPU, in fact, when you do it leads to more expense and lesser performance as you'll pay significantly more for a card, and by the time you require the extra power, new models will be out at cheaper prices for the same performance or even more.Also, with games becoming more demanding wouldn’t it make sense to future proof?
There wouldn't be any issues, you just wouldn't use it, it would be like buying a 24pack of eggs and throwing half of them away after a week.Right, so basically.
4K 60hz, don’t get a 3080 but instead get a 3070/ti (if available)?
Can I ask, would there be any issues at all if I went with a 3080? For the sake of it just simply being the only one in stock for example
