    Best way to find a MSRP 3060TI?

    Matter of opinion. I did manage to get my 6700XT for right around MSRP, but it's just not quite enough for the new 4k monitor I bought myself last Feb. I'm trying to get a RTX 3080 or 6800XT around a $1000 mark, which is pretty much impossible for the 6800XT, but is possible with the 3080 at MSRP

    Best way to find a MSRP 3060TI?

    And I've been trying the shuffles since last Jan and still haven't been selected. Have you considered a AMD card? The 6700XT is available, is about the same price as a non-Founders Edition RTX 3070, and is between the 3060ti and 3070 in performance.

    Gaming PC upgrade - advice on where to start!

    I would choose one of the following- https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Xdb2Vc https://pcpartpicker.com/list/st8qMv The AMD build would probably be the better performing combo the Intel build still has enough budget room left to up the CPU to a 11600k, but the B560 motherboard would prevent any...

    Warzone not reaching desired fps

    4.3 GHz on a 3900X is probably going to bottleneck a RTX 3080 some, possibly enough to keep you around 110 FPS. Remember, today's CPUs run at 4.6 GHz or faster and have higher IPC. you would need to OC your CPU to around 4.8-4.9GHz to match the 4.6GHz 5600X (with the 5600X at a all core OC of...

    Dishonored 2 and RX 6800 XT - weird texture flicker on ocean surface

    I have this same issue playing Mechwarrior 5 with my 6700XT. The newest drivers (21.6.2) are suppose to have a fix for it, but I haven't tested it yet. Yes, this is a known issue with drivers updates being worked on to fix it. EDIT: Updated to drivers 21.6.2, problem no longer exists in...

    Old PC Vs new

    You went from top of the line desktop CPU to a 3rd tier CPU, I wouldn't expect to see much gain from that anyway. I went from a HEDT 3930k to a tier 1.5 CPU 10850k (I mean, it's not equal to a 10900k, but you'll play hell telling the difference), and I have seen a big difference in performance...

    The Dell Proprietary Police Versus New Build Freedom

    I didn't put that build together to play a particular game. I put it together with the mindset that the OP has used his current computer for 13 years, so I put together a build suggestion that would have just as long a life span as his previous build.

    The Dell Proprietary Police Versus New Build Freedom

    Nice build, but not appropriate in this case. The OP has been using the same system for 13 years. So we should be suggesting builds to last similarly. @Tom Sunday This is my suggestion. I pretty much went all out considering how long you have been using your C2Qx system (I do miss my old...

    Intel DG2 Graphics Card Leakers Suggest Performance Similar to NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti, AMD RX 6700

    Am I the only one that noticed this- When did the 6700XT start out performing the RTX 3070? https://www.techpowerup.com/review/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3070-ti-founders-edition/28.html

    Upgrading pc build

    best to start the thread of you own The builds I posted and what Why Me is suggesting will play and feel the same when they are new. My builds will likely stay relevant longer as the CPUs are stronger. Kinda like how a 3570k is showing it's age, but a 3770k fairs better in comparison.
