Query – Is now the time to purchase?

A number of issues together with your construct to anybody that’s studying it….

1. You need to wait a bit extra… ASUS for instance has introduced they’ll slash all costs on GPU’s by approx 25%.
This implies you possibly can most likely get it cheaper do you have to wait.


2. the 3080Ti is NOT value it.
At that worth id quite go workforce RED and get a 6900XT, as they’re simply nearly as good / cheaper.

3. Since i get an AMD card, i’d go along with a AMD Ryzen System with SAM function, probably a 5900X or a 5800X3D (new chip) on a X570S platform (EVGA Darkish sequence).

4. Because it appears you broke the wall referred to as “Funds” i’d get a Samsung 980PRO 1TB as predominant boot drive, after which seize 2 x 2TB SATA SSD’s (might be no matter model you need and sure QVO drives are even high quality for this utility right here) put these guys on R0 (Raid-0) config in home windows cupboard space, and set that up as a devoted sport drive, as video games are getting stupidly bloated nowadays with the common measurement of a AAA title netting close to 100GB EACH.

To not point out each replace on unreal engine requires your entire sport to be patched.. sure… the ENTIRE sport, which means 100GB rewrites in your drive every time a dev goes oops, i missed that code, so that you need one thing a bit extra disposable there, to not point out on R0, you unfold the writes to 2 drives so technically every drive is barely getting half the writes, in your restricted write rely.

As for the learn pace in video games, sure its slower, however not by that a lot. I’m fairly certain you dont have higher issues to do with that 1-2 seconds (typically not even that a lot) you save at most in load up over a pure nVME vs R0-SSD, howerver having 4TB for pure sport storage vs much less then 1.3 TB if we issue OS and the actual fact you by no means ought to max a nVME extra then 80%, you may be way more pleased this route.

Lastly i’m not a fan of ASUS.
I solely like ASUS when its doesn’t give me issues, however when it does, they’ve a Buyer Service division equal monkeys studying scripts and never drifting from mentioned script.

I even had the CSR return to 1 and skim the identical line she learn to me 10 min in the past as a result of i confused the hell out of her and she or he “began over”.
Its that unhealthy.

To not point out i used to be even as soon as denied an RMA as a result of they mentioned i broke one thing, when it was damaged after they recieved it.
Fortunate for me i had footage included and a pair of months combating with reps, they mentioned they’d do a “good religion” on me… LOLz… no, they acquired caught that is plain and easy.

Lastly PLEASE and that i say PLEASE don’t low cost on the PSU.
Sure its an excellent PSU you chose, however actually in case your dropping 1200 {dollars} on a GPU, at the least get a platinum or Titanium raited PSU, and at the least a 1KW class or increased, because the 3080 / 6900 sequence has one thing actually nasty referred to as transient load spikes, which compelled me and the GPU moderator to alter PSU’s as our programs would REBOOT every time we hit a transient spike on our 3090’s
