Think I'll stick with my 2060, its more than adequate for my needs.

No real benchmarks for VR but this was nice to read.

I can say this: with the RTX 3080, you can run Elite Dangerous at its "high" preset in VR, flip to 120Hz mode in Valve Index, and expect a nearly locked framerate. The same goes for Fallout 4 VR, a brutally unoptimized VR conversion of Bethesda's RPG, which I can finally run at a locked 90fps (or hover in variable 100-110fps territory on Valve Index). Three years after that VR port's launch, I actually want to play it that way.

Only if you want to turn it on, you need 1600W to play solitaire.

850W in mine.

I did find the GN Wattage info on the oc 3800 FE with amazement as it pulled almost 370W in some benchmarks.


Yeah, I think if you're overclocking a 750 is deffo the way to go. I'm absolutely not, so hopefully I'll be fine.

It will be, I have just has some bad experiences due to power supplies taking out components which is why I am overly cautious.

This is interesting:



Guy is running a 3080 undervaulted and seeing almost no FPS drops.

Highest peak draw from standard is around 550

I think I'm going to stick with my 1080ti for another year or so. My CPU and RAM are pushing 7 years old now so more important to upgrade them.

I was out of the PC gaming scene so long I think my 2060 is fantastic, so I can't imagine how cool a 3080 must be - but maybe ignorance is bliss, it's a lot cheaper this way... :slol:

Anyone played Northgard? It's dead cheap on Steam and looks up my street.

Seems there is going to be a community update for Left4Dead 2 in conjunction with Valve.

Overclockers have stated that cards are in very short supply, also there are issue with the exchange rate due to Brexit so expect a price increase up to £40 on the AIB cards.


The following cards are in stock right now and shall be available to order around 14:00 today, quantities are limited and expected to sell out straight away, GOOD LUCK!

- Gigabyte Eagle
- Gigabyte Gaming
- Asus TUF
- Palit Gaming Pro
- Palit Gaming Pro OC
- Zotac Trinity


Stock arriving over next few days:
- MSI Ventus
- MSI Trio
- Asus TUF
- Palit Gaming Pro
- Gigabyte Eagle
- Gigabyte Gaming
- Zotac Trinity


The numbers incoming are limited, as such the majority will probably be waiting until October to receive a card, as demand at launch will seriously out strip supply this month.

Unfortunately hitting MSRP has proven tough, the MSRP's were set when the pound was 1.33-1.34 this can easily be confirmed by checking charts, and stock has been arriving at OcUK purchased at rates of 1.27-1.29 as such MSRP's are a real struggle. Brands are working with us to allow us to hit MSRP, but unless the pound recovers back to 1.33-1.34 levels then the prices will go up by approximately £30-£40 a card, so do be warned, pre-ordering will save you money but the window of opportunity to do so shall be slim, potentially minutes at 14:00

Going to just try for a Founders Edition direct since it seems the likely best deal. Not actually holding out much hope.

Yeah that's what I'm doing. I'm hoping that as I'm using the French site there may be, I dunno, less demand, but I don't reckon I'll get one today

GameFAQs Message Boards are saying Nvidia sold out in 10 seconds.

I still can't get on.
