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!

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!

Luckily, well known crypto is tanking at the moment so hopefully this will blow over.

Apparently Samsung are developing special chips for crypto farming so hopefully that will help too.

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

Great price, but stock due 'soon'...

 

Disclaimer: it's the 3gb version so going above 1080p will yield poor results but at 1080p it's a great card.
