    New W1zzard Vega Review

    Absolutely agree. Abstinance is the best move these days (in GPU world!). I was not happy with the whole founders edition shenanigans so I found 2 used 1080s from someone who had already bought 2 new 1080ti's. Been a long time since I bought used GPUs.

    price drops for 1070s and 1080s?

    Eb@y has a bunch of 1080s and 1070s and prices are coming down. Auctions ending between 430-500 for 1080s. I have a bunch on my watch list still. Found a guy yesterday selling his 1080s FE with ek water blocks and ek backplates on them, plus the original packaging and cooler and chatted with...

    Which EVGA GTX 1070 / 1080 model to buy?

    Fair enough

    Which EVGA GTX 1070 / 1080 model to buy?

    Unless adding a water block. Edit: But I agree, if not going water or getting a block included I would go with a 3rd party like evga or MSI. But, taking a look at reviews, power draw increases with the 3rd parties 8+6 pin rather than the founders edition single 8 pin ,and performance increase I...

    Which EVGA GTX 1070 / 1080 model to buy?

    Prices for 1080s are tumbling on eBay. Just yesterday, scored 2 nvidia 1080 founders editions with ek water blocks, ek backplates as well as the original boxes and original coolers for 500usd each. If you can grab one on eBay that your brother can bring with him, I would do that. Evgas warranty...

    Is it the people here or just how people are?

    Don't get drawn into threads that are toxic. I like to follow the rule; read more, post less. I don't post much. Usually only if I can help someone or I need help. Keep it simple.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition 11 GB

    @W1zzard On the maximum overclock comparison chart you have the gtx 1080 listed as 2441mhz core clock. Is this a typo or have you hit that clock with the old 1080? I just bought a used pair of 1080s w/ek blocks and ek backplates for 500 a pop and would be thrilled about an almost 2.5ghz core...

    What are you playing?

    I'm sure I'll get a few run throughs of alien after I get back to my rig, grab some new GPUs and get my home theater setup back up and running. For now I'm on my little 11.6 inch eurocom monster with a 650m GPU and have recently finished a couple runthroughs each of Resident evil 1 (non remake)...

    What are you playing?

    @manofthem are you using the TAA mod for Alien? https://github.com/aliasIsolation/aliasIsolation/releases A very dedicated fan made a mod that adds temporal anti aliasing to alien isolation to get rid of all that shimmering that the default aa solutions have. I have not yet tried it myself as...
