    Ugly GPUs

    I know its totally teenage gamer level marketing, but I do miss this era. Ruby was cool and Nvidia did have some cool ones from time to time.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Yep that's what I do too. Or they get retired to "extra PSU" when I need one for running a pump when doing a Mayhems Part 2 loop in the bathroom or something. Yeah I bought this 1kw PSU last year but now kinda thinking I should have gotten at least 1200W for future proofing given how graphics...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Buy once, cry once. 100%. Just retired an 850W that was 11 years old. Not so much because it broke or anything, was still working, but at that age I figure why gamble, I got my money out of it.

    4090 vs 2k 270 what's your choice?

    Drugs are bad mmkay? Or maybe for you they'd be good.

    Are these criteria still valid when buying GPU in 2023?

    I never said reference is the best choice. Just said it was sort of the minimum viable product as approved by Nvidia/AMD. AIB's also use reference designs for some models, so simply being an AIB does not guarantee custom PCB design. You'll have to look at it per model/SKU. I wouldn't even say...

    Good point, I agree.

    Yep, ultimately if you don't care about RT, then I'd say get the used 1080 Ti. PErformance equivalent roughly to that of a 2080/2080 Super if I recall.

    4090 vs 2k 270 what's your choice?

    Well I have a 4K 120Hz display so guess I'll take the 4090. You buying?

    Need help - I RMA'd my 2080 Ti XC2 Ultra with EVGA and have been given the choice between a 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra, or a 3070 Ti XC3 Ultra. Which one?

    3GB extra VRAM doesn't magically make your 2080 Ti faster, but I get what you are saying, I would not be a fan of regressing in total VRAM either. That said, given the choice, personally I'd also prefer the newer card with newer features and slightly faster performance. Unless you are actually...

    I agree that GTX 1660 > RX 6500XT. RTX 2060 or a 2060 Super would be better than both. Try it out and see if it meets your needs.

    Are these criteria still valid when buying GPU in 2023?

    1. Reference cards are just that, the reference. I.e. this is the minimum (but often a little better than minimum) spec to build these. Founder Edition's are not the same as reference on the Nvidia side. They are usually built well, but can be lacking in available power for overclocking and no...

    I'd run two sticks so that you are in dual channel.

    Nvidia RTX 4090 power connectors melting?

    Now there's an angle I hadn't considered. Thanks.
