Ooh, njx, I dig the promise of those quiet cases. I don't like loud fans. I do like bright fancy lights because I'm a simpleton.

I've never actually done multiplayer with Civ but own and play vi. How long are games? How does it work because single player takes a looooong time.

I'd potentially be up for it.

You can do the accelerated mode to make it quicker, but it still requires a few hour long commitment from all the players. I've done it a few times and it's reasonably fun.

The other alternative is 'hotseat' mode which I think is their version of asycnhronous multiplyaer. Could be a solution, but would draw a game out over weeks.

quick maths: if the 3080 TI is 40% faster than the 2080 TI it still won't get 144 fps at 1440p in RDR2

More or less rebuilt my PC today, took everything out except the mobo, cpu and aio cooler. Moved the AIO rad to the front of my case, moved those fans to the top, actually took my time to cable manage everything neatly.

OC my 3900x to 4.35ghz at 1.35v, 40C idle, 84C when stress tested

I'm in the market for a monitor for web dev. I have a great 2k tn panel for gaming, but need to replace my 10 year old 21" Samsung with dogshit color.

Looks like Comet Lake passed AMD in pretty much everything. I might have to take a trip over to Microcenter after work and get my PC ready so I can just pop the new GPU in when I decide which one to go with.

That's good to know I was planning on doing an AMD build for my new pc, but I'm waiting till black friday to do that. Also missed out on the 3080 so now I have to wait for the 2nd round of restocks

Intel is really only for gaming at this point, make sure you aren't making decision based on their biased information they like to compare things that are entirely unequal like a $500 processor to a $200 one because they have the same core count

They will also do stuff like run the AMD processor with 1 stick of ram at 2400mhz

Plus Ryzen 4000 is about to come out and pass them again anyways

Just hoping AMD can push Nvidia like this

After reading this article, I might just slap the 3080 in my 4770K box. LMAO.

honestly might be fine with a 3070 or the lower end AMD card lol

until people actually start taking advantage of 8 cores which might finally happen with the consoles coming

but bottleneck calculator really disagrees with me lol

well found one for $700 on ebay, bought it, likely a scam but i used Paypal and it's listed normally so 100% will get my money back

he also may have fucked up and accidentally put in the minimum bid as the buy it now price, i seemed to have bought it seconds after he made the change lol

Guy deleted his account instead, had sold 300 things previously lol

Decided I'll be going 3070 straight in to my old haswell box. It's the sensible move, and I'll have plenty of time to get a cooling loop planned out for when warm weather comes back, and plenty of time for Zen 3 to shake out.
