>>590674598wait a few months and get a 3000 series for msrp. 4000 series power draw is up to 850w.

>>590675135I'm aldeady there>>590675148They will, the shortage isn't going to end (if anything it can get worse) but I'm not entirely sold on the 3000 series.A top gamma card should be able to max out EVERYTHING on the market for a couple of years, no compromises. The fact these cards are already struggling with a handful of games is concerning. Top tier power should be able to overcome even the shittiest porting attempts

I used my upgrade money for a series x and PS5. Fuck Nvidia for encouraging that mining market. Scalpers are one thing. Annoying, but they are easy enough to beat. Scalpers AND Mudminers from chinkastan sandalshit on the other hand with their bots, and their massive farms. THEY crippled the GPU industry. Remember that. Not the scalpers. Not the shortage. The MINERS.My 1070 is still usable on VR, so il just ride my PC until it dies. I WILL NEVER FORGIVE THEM >:-(

>>590681417Just you wait, the 4000 series will be even more overpriced than current day over priced cards

>>590674598Depends on what you currently own. If you have something serviceable, I'd say wait. RTX 3000 is kind of shit in general, on top of being completely overpriced right now it just isn't a great product line anyway. Next-gen is rumored to bring much better performance, if you're going to pay a shitload for a card then that would be a much better choice.

New prices are here to stay OP


>>590674598>1000 WATTSit will be a warm summer

I gave inI bought from a prebuild sight I regret nothing

the free market will soon kick in as new fabs start spinning up and because the free market is short-sighted there will be an oversupply.there will be so many graphics cards that your fridge will have it's own GPU when this time comes.

>>590674598I have a 3080 mobile. Don't know why people hate on gayman laptops. It's insane how nice it runs every game in QHD or 4k. I can play on it at my desk when my gf want to watch telenovela, i can play on my 4k tv. We play coop games on the couch. It's not louder than my old PS4 but it hits the 120 fps on my tv easily most of the time. I can adjust its wattage in control center from 120 to 165 or 150 with 15w boost. Feels good to not be poor.

>>590686616>implying these prices aren't the new normal because AMD and Nvidia know they can get away with it

>>590675695That's more to do with lazy devs and piss poor optimization than cards being underpowered.

>>590675817>>590675985>>590676415>>590677004I knew Holla Forums was fucking retarded, but goddamn this is impressive even by Holla Forums standards. The advantage of workstation GPUs is that their drivers are specifically designed for workstation applications. The license cost for some of these programs will easily outweigh the hardware that runs on it.Nvidia provides optimised drivers which substantially improve performance.There's also additional features such as a larger VRAM buffer, ECC mode and lower power requirements - none of which gayming consumers need or desire

>>590687523ECC needs to be everywhere. Everyone needs ECC in everything; there's no reason anyone needs to be dealing with random corruptions in 2022+, and AMD agrees.

>>590689278ECC introduces latency as theres time needed to do the error check and correction You dont want that when rendering video games

>>590677456yes they do

>>590677292After pretty much the whole world shat on Russia for invading Ukraine, I very much doubt China wants to be in any position where what they do can be compared to what Russia does in any way whatsoever. If anything, this is going to be a resounding signal to them that invasion is not the way, at the very least not in the near future while the Ukraine war is still ongoing or even after when it's still fresh in everyone's mind.

4000 series is most likely going to get scalped to some degree still. 3000 series cards are beefy and should last a long while as long as you're not trying to bruteforce 4k gaming (aka meme resolution)At 1080 and 1440p, a 3070 will be much more than enough to "futureproof" for a while (like 5+ years). If you can get one for a reasonable price, do it. You can risk waiting but you might get burned. Are you really going to feel awful if you get a 3000 series for a decent price or slightly over msrp if it gives you way better performance than your current GPU? Probably not unless you're a consoomer baby who always needs the newest thing.If your gut tells you yes, and you have a safe buffer of money to spend on PC gaymer parts, just do it already. Can't always beat yourself up over hindsight either if you overspend a little or miss out on the newest something.

>>590693801Wasn't too bad all things considered. Got a decent discount with a coupon code, free shipping, and a free 2tb hdd too. Was the easiest avenue for me to get a gpu so I said fuck it and pulled the trigger.I do rendering work too so I needed the cpu power and fuck the cheapo mobos some people recommend, terrible thing to fail on you so I never will go cheap on mobo again personally

>>590695425>30803070 is probably enough for most people and 80 is way more than the 70 by a huge cost margin still. Unless you want 4k or only play AAA stuff on ultra at 1440p, a 3070 will be what most want. If you're on a 1070 or below I'd say a 3070 is the way to go, the performance increase is enormous. Anyone on a 2k card is probably alright unless it's the lowest of low tier.Also if you need a CPU/mobo/etc, NOW is the time to buy ideally. Thank me later

>>590677543is that pre or post taxes, and where did you buy fromi thought i was getting a slick deal on a 3070 prebuilt from newegg, marked down $400, $2100-$1700. but after shipping, taxes, and insurance i was basically at the pre sale point anyway.

Attached: 1627509513801.png (845x925, 457.76K)

>>590695605>2k discountBasically a steal with that privilege. Though I've always been wary of Dell anything. I'd say jump on it as long as you know you're not getting a fire hazard PSU.

should I settle for a 3070 if I have a good opening to get one?I mainly play stuff at 1080p and might go to 1440p later3080 is tempting but might be overkilleveryone says 3070ti is a scam if more than the 3070?

>>590677862to be desu id take any cute girl regardless of race idgaf

>>590695643i agree but the way the OP worded it made it sound like he could get a 3080 if he wanted. if he had free choice of cards i would also rec the 3070 first. but i'd advocate for any 3000 series you can snag and afford if really you need to upgrade.

if you play at 1080p60, just buy a 6600 xt for 500 dollars and call it a day. you max out everything and dont need to break your bank.

>>590696039>way the OP worded it made it sound like he could get a 3080 if he wantedAh, guess so kinda missed that. I'd still suggest the 70 though unless the 80 is a really really good steal though. Any 3k I agree is good though, maybe avoid the 3070ti since it's a bad deal (if more than the normal 70) and eats more power for little gain.

>>5906958793070 vs 3070ti really depends on how the prices are where you live. Like here 3070 was around 900 and 3070ti was 1000. So you were paying 10% more for around 10% performance meaning that it's not really a scam it's just very slightly better version of 3070. But if you get a 3070 ti you really should look up how to undervolt the gpu because by default the power limits are bonkers and it builds unnecessary heat for close to no performance gains.

never be a waitfag but also don't fall for fomoin the current climate for electronics you probably will get fucked unless you get luckyand most likely, if you don't waitfag you can buy now and be "lucky" when later something new fucks up the market inevitably if you follow politics shit at all (don't blame you if you don't) then you'd know the market is a mess and you should take what you can get right now unless you're sitting comfy

>>5906958793070 will be the sweet spot between price performance and longevity for most people3080 might be more useful if you're series about 1440p; not too sure about the specifics of the 3kti cards but also heard they're scams.

>>590695301hello transsexual how’s the voice therapy

>>5906745984000 will be the first series that will probably run awful ports decently well. getting a 3000 is a mistake.

>>590689278Especially with retarded shit like superfetch on win11.

>>590696753Ah yes building overpriced PC just so you can run those few awful ports while every other game runs at 50% gpu usage. What a great idea.

>>590696753Give me some real examples of games you'd want to bruteforce with a 4k series gpu.I have a hard time of thinking of anything worthwhile a 3k series can't handle at 60fps (if not more) at 1080 or 1440p

>>590697068>60 fpswtf I can do 140 fps in pretty much every game ultra with 3070 in 1080p. Could go 1440p if I drop few settings down.

>>590697162I'm throwing dumb/shill user a bone here, well aware that the 3070 is pretty stacked. His use case is nicher than niche and I'm genuinely curious what he can't possibly run well on a 3k card that somehow the 4k could bruteforce.
