    $700 for the new 3080.

    $1200 for the 3090, which will probably require a new case cause it's huuuuge

    We’re entering the potential timeframe where I’m weighing shelling out for these new cards or latching on to GeForce Now/x-cloud for my future.
    I have a 980 ti so I’m due for an upgrade...but I’d rather not pay that much if I’m going to have a reasonable facsimile in a few years streaming.

    3090 is 1500

    3080 is 700

    The 3080 is twice as fast as the 2080, and is quite a generational leap. The 3070 comes out in October, and will be 500. Also, it will be faster than the 2080ti.

    I’m on the fence about 3080 and 3090. If I get the 3080, I’ll be tempted to make another GPU purchase sooner than I would if I just bought the 3090. I’m already gonna but all new components and make a new computer, might as well lean in. Unfortunately for my bank statement

    Wish I could do the same but I’ve been running a mini-ITX setup and don’t want to change that just yet. I can do the 3080 in there and have decided to get it.

    in the process I’m changing out my PSU and putting in a 1 TB NVME into the m.2 on the back of my MB since I’ll have everything taken apart and can easily install it. Then I spur of the moment decided to upgrade my RAM for no good reason but seeing the numbers go up. Upgrading is a dangerous game for me.

    Will new cards require new/faster processors?

    I thought my build would run better, but it struggles to stream while gaming.

    All it does it move the bottleneck of your system to a different component. But if the 30xx is as powerful as it’s being touted, yeah you won’t be GPU bottlenecked for awhile.

    Nvme was actually my first buy for the new system. I’m unsure if I should wait for the 4000 series of CPU’s from AMD, but it’s getting too close to cyberpunk2077 for me to wait much longer. I’ll probably by the ram in the coming weeks

    What I’ve read claims it will be released sometime between July and October of this year. So...hopefully pretty fucking soon. Which is why I’ve been lagging on buying the cpu

    It’s downloaded and I booted up the tutorial since it had been a minute. Besides updated snazzy graphics, what should I mainly be looking for in the difference between ck2 and ck3?

    I played the 2 for only a few hours and never really got the hang of it. I think I liked the idea of the game more than the game itself. This one looks a bit more accessible though so I'm back and forth on if I want to try it.

    I’d have to check on Steam but I probably put 100 hours in. I still feel quite lost on the deeper mechanics and just did my best to intrigue assassinate my enemies. The succession rules were always tough and despite my efforts I was maybe once able to get a Genius firstborn and pass all of my titles to them. It was fun though and if you have Game Pass, free is good.

    One of the things that will come to the game for free but not yet is a ruler designer, allowing you to pick the traits of your playable character. In ck2, it was always a tradeoff because adding a positive trait (genius, for example) adds years to your age. You balance these out with negative temporary traits (scarred, wounded, inconsequential things like that).

    Until that comes into the game, you can download a mod that lets you pick willy nilly without making your character older and therefore out of fertile age. Bit of cheating, but it'll work for now.

    I assume it's the same name in the Workshop if you got the game through Steam rather than XBox Game Pass.

    I tried for the 3080 but it’s bullshit. Between that and the ps5 fiasco I’m pretty disgruntled today.

    I want a 3080, but will happily settle for a 3070 to replace my 1070. I'll sell my 1070 and any bundled games to bring down the 3070 cost to ~$300.

    Need to first find a new PC tower that fits my dimension needs. Will probably pull the trigger on a new card in 6 months.

    Just bought Among Us. Such a good game. Anyone still playing?

    I'm not sure how I feel about the decision to can the sequel and focus on this one, though.
