PC Building a new gaming PC

You need a 2080 Ti in there or nothing at all!!
Waiting to see what the next gen AMD stuff does before I worry about the RTX cards. So far the 1080 is more then fine for 2560. Glad, as it looks great, and the 4k version of this monitor is $2000

Yea, I know I went overboard. I did research and saw that excess memory is no longer a bottleneck of its own. Might end up running VM’s etc after we build a new house so more is better.
I don’t remember the specifics but when I was buying my current pretty RGB RAM, I read that 2 slots filled is slightly faster than 4. If it weren’t for that, is have 32g instead of 16.

AMD is launching the Vega VII next month. It's apparently equal to a 2080 without raytracing, but at the same price! Which is just AMD being AMD in the GPU market. It seems they routinely fail to deliver when it comes to being competitive with NVIDIA on the higher end market.

Glad a picked up a 1070 Ti instead of getting a 2070. Let Nvidia sit on those shitty cards and think about what they did.

75% price increase for <25% power increase over the last gen. What a bunch of assholes.

Ray Tracing is pretty awesome and adds some pretty great effects but game devs are just getting in on it. It’s gonna be pretty standard I’m thinking.

I looked into 4K monitors but at 27” I just don’t think it’s a game changer. If they come out with a non-laggy 30” 4K I might consider it. For now I think 2650x1440 @ 27” is the sweet spot.

New tech = more expensive in its first generation. If you're butt hurt about this, you haven't been very observant.

It certainly does, but Battlefield may have not been the best game to show it off with, since it's largely played in multiplayer where eye candy isn't nearly as important. If it came out in the newest Tomb Raider first and with refined initial performance, perception would have been better. But the next gen of RTX cards will probably be priced more closely to the 10xx series, just my guess. Because they'd sell a fuck ton of them.

Higher refresh rate > higher resolution.

Quite you!

980->1080 was 50% performance increase with 9% price increase
Performance is great but it’s not only about making cards faster and faster. Effects have to evolve and Ray Tracing is pretty good stuff. Are the current ones overpriced? Yep. RTX cards will get more reasonable soon.

Metro: Exodus looks good. I’ll proly get it for some RTX eye candy awesomeness. .

Fuck the effects. No more wire hangers!
