rtx 3080 is down to $800 now but read 40 series coming out relatively soon (this year). Think it's worth waiting for 40 series?

 

My concern is short supply or massive buying reselling on the 40 series and I'll have to wait another year. What you guys think?

Good idea I should wait to compare specs. 

 

I'll try to catch you on discord later Elf, I always appreciate your expertise!

 

Kuehhas you have a good point but part of me thinks DoDs only runs off of cpu. I use to max out around 400fps I upgraded my cpu now I can pull like 800fps

Looks like the 4080 will be released in October. I am gonna wait until then bc either I buy a 40 series or there will be a ton of 3080's on the market from people upgrading I bet I could buy an used one for cheap at that time.

Smart idea. I had to pull the plug early on one. I am sick of the AMD drivers crashing on me and a friend of mine things I have a bad memory module. Seems its gotten worse over the last month. I am supposed to be able to pick it up on Tuesday.

I swear memory always goes first. Gratz on the new card, too bad it didn't make you good enough to get banned from ARP!

Apparently Nvidia announced they purchased and received $10billion worth of parts for the 40 series so they are not limited in stock.

EVGA was always my go-to brand until the 3000 series. I got an Asus ROG Strix 3080 and I'm very happy with it.

Sweet I'll look for an Asus. Is MSI any good? I have a MSI motherboard not a fan of their software though.
