The RX 5700 XT is being prematurely retired.

Here's what the build looked like:

And here's the card chilling outside:
View attachment 138340

That's because an evil usurper is here, the Palit RTX 2080 Super GameRock:

"Muahahaha..all your base are belong to us" cries the usurper (more like "all your slots are belong to us.")

This card will be pulling a 1440p display (for which the RX 5700 XT was perfect). The RTX 2080 Super is too powerful for 1440p (RTX 2070 Super or RX 5700 XT are enough), and it's not perfect for 4K either (RTX 2080 Ti fits that bill). So I guess RTX 2080 Super on 1440p is more of a future-proofing option. Play anything from today maxed out with RTX, be future-ready for the next 3 years at least.

And yes, this is the exact card from the TPU review. It's a gift from the boss, re-assembled with some TIM replacement, etc.
Thats great!
Lovely upgrade for sure! Still 5700xt is great card in its own ways ;)
If only I didnt own 1080 ti which doesn't need to be upgraded to anything just yet...

I hope You wiped the dust before completing this build :D I mean come on

i was thinking the same when i wrote the previous post xD (well i also had a Wonderboom as i mentioned ... UE always made very nice sounding BTSPK and since Logi acquired them, it did not change )

well i was tempted by a Marshall Stockwell II due to his fine tuning knob for Bass and Treble, but it was 159chf more

My HEOS GOPACK battery died so I needed a shower speaker... this UE one ended up being cheaper than the go pack.

Hubby needed a new headset too so this worked out nicely

@btarunr Congrats on the upgrade. But why is the inside of your case so dirty?
I live in a place with >400 ppm suspended particulate matter in the air...and not a desert (for reference, on a dog day afternoon, NYC has ~50 ppm). It takes ~3 months for this much dust to accumulate.

The last time I got lazy and tried using an 800 Watt leaf-blower to clean the PC, its static fried some components on my motherboard. I'll clean up soon.

I live in a similar situation, not quite as bad though.
My case would get dusty as hell after only 2 weeks, but with some filters on the fans then a xiaomi air filter, the situation is much better.
I also lifted the pc off the floor, which means it is t now sucking up all the settled dust particles.

You can look it up for your location. That will give you a rough estimate. Air quality measurement tools get expensive for any kind of accurate results.

I feel really really guilty about this as I've spent waaaay too much money this month, especially with xmas coming up, but ...... I really wanted a gaming card to go with the 4K TV screen I ordered, so I will put this bad boy in my HTPC (If it fits)
It was also a real bargain at ~$330, compared with the $5-600 the 5700xt goes for locally. This was discounted by around $100 locally.

Bought a mint Dell Precision M4700 with 6 months warranty for RM1199 (~USD 290). Its the base model with i5 3340M, Quadro K1000M, 8GB RAM and 256GB LiteON SATA SSD. The quality of Dell Precision is just amazing. Speaker sounds great it have body (mids and some lows) so its great for watching videos, LCD sharp and crisp most importantly matte (its 1080p TN panel but decent enough for me), everything inside is easily accessible by just a couple of screws removed. The fans easily cleaned without removing the heatsink assembly. Amazing!

I'm close to buying Alienware M17X R4, slightly cheaper than this but the GPU is dead (repairing it going to costs a lot of money), speaker crackle (replacing this costs some money too) and its damn heavy so I give it a pass and buy this instead.

There are several problems with it though, the CPU always clock at its base speed of 900MHz but I get around it by using trusty Throttlestop, the GPU clock always clock at 669MHz even though maximum clock is 851MHz so I just flash the vBIOS to lock it to higher clockspeed.

Not a purchase, but a hand me down from a nephew going 3900x. Good boost over the old Ryzen 1200, rips DVDs twice as fast! Also the Wraith Spire I think it is, which honestly is a bit noisy, even in L mode.

Is that a good price where you live? To me it definitely sounds too expensive.

Second hand laptop prices are crazy in Malaysia. This is considered a good price for it, usually this thing costs above RM1500 (~USD350). The alienware I mentioned costs RM900 (~USD215) but with all the damaged internals (GPU, speakers etc.) that can easily costs as much to buy replacement parts. The price for good condition of the alinware costs above RM2000 (~USD470)
