I have some spare money i can use to upgrade my rtx 3060 i love, instead of using it for food or something else that is gone,used for the money in 2-3 weeks

4060 ti 8gb is like 70 euros cheaper than the 16gb ti and performs almost the same but you have been told that for 1440p 8gb vram is not enough for many games in 2023,2024

I know horizon zero dawn in my system with all what's running in the background (2'nd monitor) uses 10-11gb vram, thats the only high vram game i think i have

Then theres a used gtx 3060 ti (only 8gb vram), rtx 3070 also 8gb vram as well as a rtx 3070 ti

Is 8gb enough for games in 1440p in 2024

Is there anybody who buys gpu's with 8gb vram for 1440p gaming in 2024?

It... depends. I upgraded from my 3070 because I was frustrated with the low amount of vram when trying to play the last of us. That being said, many games do still work fine at 8gb, and if you're okay with turning down settings (especially textures) that can help, and so can using dlss.

Mind you though, if you already have a 3060.. maybe it would be worth holding onto it for a bit longer and saving for a 4070/super or even waiting until next gen. The 4060 ti isn't that great at either capacity.

It does (4060 ti) in some games perform as good as rx 6800 or 2080 ti

With a higher tier gpu i do wanna keep the settings to get higher fps (165/180hz monitor)

Wait for next gen, even if you don't buy a high end that are first out but it may bring prices down on other GPU's...

I game across 1440p, most games run between 5 and 9GB of VRAM that I play. I guess it all depends on games you play and settings you play them at.

Personally I would say 12GB for 1440p would be ideal.

I just so prices for rx 7700 xt, they are super, 434 euros, lower than the rtx 4060 ti 16gb, rtx 4070 costs 140 more than a rx 7700 xt

Better than 4060 ti but not as good a s 4070, it just surpasses the rx 6800 non x

How are the drivers in 2024, does it crash often,resetts driver just when you reboote or new driver is installed,often freezes when playing a game, i had that problem with my rx 6700 xt and also had to undervolt it to make it stable, im super happy i switched to a 3060 12gb, since it doesn't crash and don't need undervolting to be stable

Don't say i needed to use ddu display driver uninstall since i did use that but it's wasn't always stable when gaming (Corsair RX850X)

If i could have a waranty that a rx 7700 xt would be as stable as my GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3060 WindForce OC - 12GB i would buy one

This is the card i can get for 434 euros

8GB card in 1440p handles majority of demanding games if you don't mind lowering settings like textures or turning off ray tracing only due to being low on VRAM.

But I don't see a point of upgrading 3060 with something like 4060 Ti. Raw performance wise it would be upgrade barely noticeable, so imo not worth whatever cost. Or maybe it's just me not being likely to upgrade GPU with something not being at least 100% faster.

With Radeon drivers it's best not to ask, but read people opinions in places they feel comfortable to talk about it. So definitely not after question like "How bad are Radeon drivers recently?". Such provokes talking two stupid types of people: Nvidia lovers who have never ever seen Radeon card or Radeon owners, but ones too proud to admit that they have bought card legendary problematic and it in fact happened being like that, so let's spread some bs instead to feel better. Go to some red part of forum focusing on drivers or regularly watch Ancient Gameplays and read there comments. Winter was rocky, but for now things seem quite fine.

im not playing with ray tracing

I have tried a faster cpu, it doesn't make a noticeable difference in games that i with my ryzen 5600 don't get 97-100% gpu usage from

Faster cpu only is good with a faster gpu or if im gonna stream in max quality and have 3-4 monitors (have 2)

If i want more perfomance, in games it's a gpu, same settings = fps increase as they show it in reviews mabye up to 40 fps instead of getting the same fps by raising graphics with a faster gpu

I also mention a rx 7700 xt cheapest rx 7800 xt is surprisingly cheap just a little over 500 euros

582 euros for a GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 4070 WindForce 2 V2 OC or a little less for a XFX Radeon RX 7800 XT Speedster QICK 319 Core Edition

8gb vram depends on the title.. and also on the individual..
Some can accept playing in lower settings, some wont go below medium settings and some plays in high/very high/ultra
Personally i have a steam deck and most games runs at low most of the time but it looks fine in a small screen
But when you have a 27" 1440p monitor it could look quite washed out, im okay with it as long as it runs smooth (over 60fps)
Stutters is the biggest problem with 8gb vram for 1440p in year 2024... when you move quickly to view... in big explosive fights... etc is not acceptable for me.....

There will be games when both CPU and GPU will be far from reaching 100% usage. Those are game engine limitations.

Generally treat VRAM as one of the things obsoleting cards - you just can't play games if you don't have enough, so simply card being low on VRAM is not likely to serve you for long. Or lowering settings which consume VRAM, especially textures, is something degrading graphics the most, so last ones you want to turn down. Or maybe you would like to use frame generation which also increase VRAM consumption. I personally wouldn't go 1440p with card not having 16GB of VRAM. It's plenty for now, but people rather expect it keeping like that for some time.

Yes, either go 7800XT or 4070.. 8GB in 2024 is a no no, that's entry level junk you want to stay away from by now. If you are content playing games from 2022 and prior, sure. If you want to play new stuff, go bigger or go home.

Yes, you can tweak every game to land just under 8GB, but you'll still find yourself in stutter heaven more likely than not, if not today then next year.

Just don't go cheap models with this trying hard to find something "under". Or then you will once again start thread about airflow shenanigans in your case, because you think it would make your hot and loud card quieter when in fact it simply has shitty cooler ;) Just go bigger and having more heatpipes cards if you don't want to think much about it.

Below you have some of the coolers amazingly compared. All cards run the same loud, but only heatload changes, so one cooler has better cooler:


As we can see, TUF 7800XT is from the best. It also would behave better than Pulse 7700XT, so you see what you pay for. Hard to say how QICK compares, maybe there're some reviews, but I doubt it being better.

Bottom of the barrel Gigabyte model is likely to be exactly like that...

EDIT: BTW when you decide the card you want to buy, not only temperatures and noise matter. Read some detailed reviews seeking for info if it doesn't have any flaws which may coexist even with an amazing cooler. I mean e.g. some PCB elements being not adequately cooled or backplate being plastic.

In a lot of regions Asus commands an unreasonable price premium. The Pulse is fine. It’s quiet and running just slightly above 60 at full load is plenty cool. The 7700XT is far from being a heat monster. The TUF has a better cooler technically, sure, but if it’s 50 bucks or more pricier than the Pulse it’s simply not worth it. If he can find the Pure though, that might be the best compromise.

It's all subjective, so for OP to decide ;)

…what? You literally linked the noise normalized cooler testing in your post. I was commenting on that. I don’t think it can get less subjective than that. Objectively, the Pulse is fine. It’s measurably quiet and reasonably cool.

Amd cards still uses alot of power 250 watt stock 7800 xt asrock 7800 xt 283 watt gaming (not a huge difference in performance compared to a rtx 4070)

sapphire rx 7700 xt pulse 228 watt asus 4070 tif kuste a little above 200 watt while gaming
Unless you live somewhere with outrageously expensive electricity this small difference is rather irrelevant. 250 watt GPUs are far from “uses a lot of power” level nowadays.

250 watt is a stock 7800 xt

Temps are also alot lower with a 4070 not really a diffrence between a 7700 xt and 7800 xt

Uh, no they are not? All aftermarket models for both are in the mid-50s - mid-60s range. Except for Quiet BIOS on a Nitro+ (which runs fans unnecessarily low) and the Gainward 4070 (which is just shit). Unless you mean the hotspot temperature which is pointless to compare since NV and AMD measure it differently and on a different spot of the chip as far as I am aware.

@Onasi It looks like you still don't understand the difference between things being objective and subjective. Or find your subjective opinions right to the point of treating them as something objective.

In a lot of regions Asus commands an unreasonable price premium. The Pulse is fine. It’s quiet and running just slightly above 60 at full load is plenty cool. The 7700XT is far from being a heat monster. The TUF has a better cooler technically, sure, but if it’s 50 bucks or more pricier than the Pulse it’s simply not worth it. If he can find the Pure though, that might be the best compromise.

Subjective are: unreasonable; fine; quiet and plenty cool; far from being heat monster; 50 buck or more pricier being not worth it or something being best compromise.

Then comes some silence/thermals extremist and says whatever being not card with the best cooler is shit. And he is more right than you, because he bases his subjective opinion on something being objectively better, so what you can't discuss with. Like objectively TUF has better cooler.

Get it or I need to list next examples from your next post? ;)

Unless you live somewhere with outrageously expensive electricity this small difference is rather irrelevant. 250 watt GPUs are far from “uses a lot of power” level nowadays.

Ah, so everything is subjective. I see. Very cool. This is probably one of the dumbest things I have read on this fine forum and I am not even exaggerating. Please go touch grass.
By the way, I can actually explain each of my “subjective” points from an objective POV, such as a GPU cooler being objectively fine if it’s quiet (and everything below 30db measured IS) and cool (again, if it’s not even close to hitting AMDs thermal limit it is OBJECTIVELY cool enough). But I guess that too would be a subjective take.
Hell on earth, I finally understand why @Assimilator is always so brusque, this IS exhausting.

Depends hella lof of the game. I "downgraded" from RX 6700 XT 12GB to RTX 3080 10GB and I play at 4K, haven't seen any problems yet since I got more GPU horsepower.

I just so prices for rx 7700 xt, they are super, 434 euros, lower than the rtx 4060 ti 16gb, rtx 4070 costs 140 more than a rx 7700 xt

Better than 4060 ti but not as good a s 4070, it just surpasses the rx 6800 non x

How are the drivers in 2024, does it crash often,resetts driver just when you reboote or new driver is installed,often freezes when playing a game, i had that problem with my rx 6700 xt and also had to undervolt it to make it stable, im super happy i switched to a 3060 12gb, since it doesn't crash and don't need undervolting to be stable

Don't say i needed to use ddu display driver uninstall since i did use that but it's wasn't always stable when gaming (Corsair RX850X)

If i could have a waranty that a rx 7700 xt would be as stable as my GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3060 WindForce OC - 12GB i would buy one

This is the card i can get for 434 euros

i have had greater success with sapphire cards than gigabyte. sapphire also give warranty after you replace the thermal paste unlike other manufacturers here.
