If it makes you feel better, our car had £2k worth of gearbox related repairs, even though it went in for something else.

AND, I'm going to the Doctor tomorrow to confirm whether or not my hernia repair from 9 years ago has ruptured. Just in time for my Canada (BC) grand tour starting Aug 17. Fun times being 48.

Oh - remember I'm also mobility impaired with a guff left leg, I went bald-ish, I've got -9 prescription glasses (though they're not milk bottles because I sourced Seiko double-aspheric lenses at £320 for single-vision which is nuts). Remember my abs pic? Yeah - they're gone.....

FTR, this post (while true) was made in a light-hearted manner. Although my nut-wires complain when I move wrong (hernia stuff).

Ah yes, the incurable disease otherwise known as old age.

Dont worry about your ABs - some of us still refer to you as 'popeye' here on TPU (or was it just me??)

Ebay is a nightmare for pre-owned cards and im not sure my heart is ready to wade through that sea of suffering yet.

I wish you better (if not the best) health

Anyway. Couldnt get test system to boot up so i gave up with that.

Fed Up Reaction GIF


so I just switched around a few PCI-E storage cards and can confirm that the slot still works.

There are some better brand new deals around ATM (compared with prices around 3 months ago), 3070's @ 519, RX6700XT @ 450 for example.

I will be keeping a close eye on Nvidia cards. Not really keen to go to red camp because of these driver issues i keep hearing about popping up. Hopefully prices will keep dropping further.


::EDIT::

Ugh.... I say this but im seeing a lot of 6700XT's going for decent prices. Cheapest one seen so far is £408

I bought a used one for £400 4 weeks ago, a week after prices started to tumble, now I'm kicking myself, will be <£400 in a few more weeks with warranty and free games which can bring the cost down even more if you sell them on :cry:

P.S no driver issues here apart from high vRAM clocks using a high refresh monitor as in one of my threads here which can be solved by using 22.5.2/creating a custom resolution using CRU/lowering screen refresh rate on the desktop, but i's not a deal breaker IMO and is annoyance rather than one that affects performance/gameplay.

If you got a good one for £400, theres no need to fret. These £408 ones are bottom of the barrel ones with peanut butter for VRMs and tofu for heatsinks.

Sapphire Nitro + so definitely a decent card, I don't really regret buying it as it's done, maybe just my hindsight that is hurting :twitch:

FTTP from EE (500mbps), 2nd red light LOS (loss of signal) on the box in 3 months, last one required an engineer visit, looks like it's going to require another, fkn joke, at least the shortages I got on my FTTC VDSL connection (70mbps) previously were usually sorted out by themselves within 10 minutes or so although more regular, usually x2 a month or so, frustrating.... though these fibre boxes are gash and the way it's installed I'm not surprised in the slightest the actual thin fibre is exposed coming in from my external box into my property, thankfully I have a table there so it never gets touched, though one would imagine the slightest tough/tug/wobble etc from my 2yo and it would be game over until an engineer could come out to fix it, first world problems I know but not what you expect from the supposed latest and greatest technology

a bit early for that aint it?
If anything, I'd say it's a bit late. I work night shifts, so when I drink, I start between 7-8 AM. :toast:

Driver issues have got a lot better with this generation. I had a 5700 XT which was a bit painful at times. My 6500 XT and 6400 behave a lot better. :)

I used to do this when working nights, come home at 8am and feel like a double whiskey and ice, my OH used to look at me in disgust like how can you drink at this time of the morning, but it was like 11pm to me as I'd slept most of the day, woke at 6pm for breakfast, went to work, ate at 1am for lunch then finished at 7am when my body was thinking it was 11/12pm lol

That's the tricky bit. People wonder why we're drinking in the morning, when in fact, we're drinking right after work and before bedtime just like they are. :laugh: We're normal people, just our body clocks are set 12 hours forward.

Quite liberating coming home at 8am, having a bite to eat and 2 double whiskeys whilst watching NetFlix for an hour or 2 then sleeping throughout the day :laugh:

I don't miss it however, I never got to see my kids, though I done nights when we was on lockdown and schools were closed so I had more time to spend with them outside of the evening, weekends etc, I stopped as soon as lockdowns ended and children went back to school

Well, I found a deal where i could of had a 6700XT for about £370 after cashback. What happens?? I get to checkout, try to make a payment and my bank decides to block the payment even though I used the banking app to authorise it.

Im fucking cursed.

::EDIT::

I dont know why i called it a 5700XT - It was a 6700XT. I blame the early morning mind fog.

I find working nights a lot easier. I've never been a morning person. It's also easier to sort daily things out. I can bring my car to service and pick it up on the same day without the need to book a holiday. Skipping rush hour traffic is another huge plus. I can do the grocery shopping right after work in an empty supermarket before people start waking up. :cool:

And if the neighbours ever complain about me drinking in the morning, I'll just tell them to quit doing their garden work when I'm sleeping. :laugh:

The only thing I don't like about nights is the weekends. I sleep through most of my Fridays, and I have to take a nap on Sundays before work, so my only real weekend is basically one day.

As someone who did perma nights for 3 or 4 months It is nice but presents its own issues. Youre always sleeping when your friends want to hang out

One of my best friends works at the same place as I on nights, so we usually hang out after work. :toast:

My other best friend is a lorry driver and works all kinds of weird odd days, so we have to plan our hangouts months ahead regardless of me working nights (I don't really like planning social events ahead, but oh well).

And the Mrs works permanent afternoons, so I see her as she drinks her wakeup coffee. :)

Before this, I used to work a rotating morning-afternoon shift which was miles worse. The only time I'll ever do that again is if all other jobs magically disappear for some reason. Or maybe not even then. Starvation isn't so bad, I guess. :laugh:

Asus Dual? Isn't the cooling on it a bit meh?

Congrats, though. Good deal! :toast:

I think I'll wait for Arc to come out. The 6700 XT is an awesome card, but a bit too normal for my taste. :D

Asus Dual? Isn't the cooling on it a bit meh?

Congrats, though. Good deal! :toast:

It probably will be. But maybe I can rip the Accelero Xtreme IV off my dead 1080Ti and make it fit the 6700

my case has decent airflow and im not really looking to OC it at all so maybe it will be fine. It should be better than those MSI 6700 XT MECH 2X cards.

I also have a very limited budget so this will just have to do unfortunately.

First time back with an AMD card since the previous 6xxx series. I had two 6970s in crossfire

I don't have many driver issues, if you have an issue where the VRAM is always at 3d clocks even in desktop use (I see you have a high refresh rate monitor), try 22.5.2 drivers, or lower your refresh rate in desktop mode, otherwise if you're not bothered about constant 2GHz vram even in 2d mode and temps of 50c+ with 26w idle power (compared to 6-7w) then it might not be an issue, other than that, use VSR/FSR/RSR and other tools at your disposal for a smooth gaming experience, I'm sure you'll be happy comparing to your 1080 Ti, welcome back to the red side :D
