Its called a credit card, or a loan, and its been around for ages, and yes, people do it for this.Someone should start a poll. Subject: how many more GPU generations before they start coming with an installment plan on the side?
Faith in humanity gets minused a lot if you think of it for too long.
I'll just add, get an ultrawide 1440 height monitor instead... its awesomeEVGA will sell these to people with more money than sense, which is why they keep getting made.
For the rest of us there are three things to consider:
- At four times the price of a 3070, it is not even close to four times faster.
- It is unlikely to make any game's story, mechanics, or bugs magically better.
- A 3070 at 1440p actually runs games 25% faster than a 3090 at 4K.
So, Chrispy_'s advice is to Just buy a really nice 1440p high-refresh monitor with the $1500 saved; Not even the 3090 can really do high-refresh at 4K so why even bother?
