Graphic Cards

Recommended Posts

So its time for an upgrade again what do you guys recommend? looking between 200-300 I reckon. My last card was a 680 which I got for around 400 I think. Looked at the 1080s but theyre big money and I dont have a 4K monitor so not sure theyre worth it.

Prices are a shitshow at the moment due to the cryptocurrency boom. Horrible time to upgrade a GPU unfortunately.

Thats what I figured. Heard that the crypto boom is consuming as much energy as Sweden does. I mean, fuckin hell, for what? Made up shit.

 

I may find another cheap 680 and do a SLI if thats still even a thing!

Most games wont take advantage of it. I'd try and hold out a month or so.

 

A 6gb 1060 was 239.99 on Scan in December and it's currently sitting at 379.99!

 

fucking lol m8

Holy shit thats bonkers. I dont actually know, just wanted to upgrade I think and play whatever is out there. My monitor is 2080 I think so like half 4K.

 

I might download some stuff and buy a SSD and see how the old girl still goes. Spend the money on a switch!

Installed a GTX 1060 in one of the machines here today for a part time person - cost us in the upper £300s. Ridiculous.

Waiting for the 11 series before I buy a new one, even then I'll take my time.

I am running a 1070, so will probably wait for the inevitable 1170ti.

Good shout. The bitcoin mining price hike is tailing off, but at this point it's worth waiting on the upcoming 11** series before throwing down proper silly money on a card.
