Why don't you own GTX 980Ti /v/?
It's the only way to properly play video games.
>the way it's meant to be played
>flag ship 980 outperformed by two year old amd shit
>Nvidia branded game
>runs better on AMD
IT ISN'T FUCKING FAIR
IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE TO WAY ITS MEANT TO BE PLAYED
Tempted to get a second one for crossfire. The temps are quite nice for a 290X, never go above 60 degrees under load.
don't be poor
only niggers are <1440p
enjoy your gameworks and planned obsolescence, meanwhile my two year olds 290x's are still kicking ass
CF drivers are way better than SLI
CF doesn't need that fucking hideous bridge either
>AMD optimized game
>runs beautifully in all kind of hardware, porperly multithreaded and it even runs on old shit
>runs like shit on everything but 980ti's and titans x on triple SLI
>mfw my hd 7790 came with a cf bridge
kinda offtopic, this is a good OC from 1050/1500?
I've got a 970 and it's already super overkill for most of the games I play. I only need 1080p/ 60 fps so yeah. Even if I upgraded my monitor I think it'd still be overkill, or I'd just need to overclock it a bit.
Also /g/ says 4k is a meme, senpai!
I just stressed out my GPU as much as possible with heaven and I can't get it above 65 degrees under these extreme conditions
because i'm waiting for pascal. rumors are the 970 equivalent of the pascal cards will be as powerful as a 980 TI so i'm looking forward to the 980 pascal equivalent.
>buying into nvidia after all the lies they've told you
having said that AMD's new cards are nothing impressive, they're almost all rebrands
AMD needs to up their shit, i'm never buying nvidia again
>AMD went bankrupt in 2020
>Intel and NVidia have no competition
>Save up 4 months' wages just to build an entry level PC
>$3,000 video card with Nvidia™ GrafixWorks™ technology
>$5,000 single core Intel™ Core™ i1™ processor clocked at 1.2GHz
>Finally get to play Battlefield 4 on low, 240p30
I can't wait
Because Nvidia is notorious for keeping up with AMD flagships over a long period of time. For example: the 290/290x were meant to be GTX 780 competitors, they would trade blows in benchmarks usually. Now? The 290x is trading blows with the 980 in newer games in 2015, NVIDIA has no excuse, honestly.
Temperatures are not the problem.
Any GPU can have managable temperatures if the heatsink is big enough and the fans are fast enough.
The problem is how much haet is getting dumped into the case.
1 gpu is fine, but with 2 shit can compound quite badly if you dont have a jet engine worth of case fans.
The only way to know how much heat your GPU is dumping into your case is power consumption.
At the time the 970 looked like an awesome card, now I'm going to ride this puppy as long as I can before switching over to AMD, especially now that AMD is putting more effort into the software side of things
You gonna get fucked once Nvidia stopps the 970 with drivers from shitting itself.
See shit like the BO3 beta without proper drivers. The game is trying to use the last 0.5GB VRAM and it starts stuttering like hell.
they already advertise Pascal with features they removed in Maxwell to get extra efficiency. Also doesn't comply by some optional DX12 rules.
I'm a bit interested how devs will work with this card. I mean in DX12 devs can allocate memory themselves. But I guess we'll have to rely on nVidia drivers.
I agree with anon above me. If you can help it, wait for the next year.
Even if you don't have money on HBM2 card, die shrink and GDDR5x will make a difference.
Maxwell is for de gamerz, pascal is for everyone.
If it's not stock, then yeah, but unless you're making one of them tiny PC,s never go stock 980ti, all of the other options have pretty rad stock overclocks.
Same. I got a 980 on launch day and it's been great. No reason to upgrade until the HBM 2.0 cards come out. Even then I'm sure the 980 will be more than capable of playing everything on Ultra or slightly below.
The next gen of GPUs should be a nice jump up and I'll probably get whatever is the best flagship when they drop though.
MOAR vram has always been pretty useless.
Graphics cards usually have the amount of VRAM their GPU can manage.
A 9800gt wont run modern games slowly because it has 512MB of vram (did those things have 768? i cant remember), it wouldn't do even slightly better with 16GB of vram because it's GPU can't load that much data fast enough.
There as some graphics cards that are made with memory limitations, of which the 970 doesn't seem to be.
The 960 on the other hand, that 128bit bus is not doing it any favours.
Because videogames are shit nowadays.
>Only a single 980ti
Are you on welfare?
I'm posting on the blue /b/. Anything you post is allowed as long as it's vaguely vidya related.
He actually bought a 5820 despite the 4790k being better in actual video game related things.
Bought no name RAM and has a 4k with 1080 UW instead of 1440.
He has money but no idea what to actually do with it.
so happy to be future proof for years to come
hi /g/, rate my $2000 anime box
things to do:
>new hard drive
>backplate for 980ti
>fan filter for rear intake fan
>LEDs for water block
Rate my first ever build? Ordered the parts not too long ago just got a few of them in today
i seriously regret buying a regular 980...i only play games like 3 hours a month or so. all i do is browse /v/ or watch streams/movies. i wish i bought more HDD instead to download more JAV
A NAS is only a good investment if you have multiple devices you want to have access to the same storage.
To expand the storage of a single device, a NAS is the stupidest choice.
Nah, running stupid amount of storage off a daily driver is silly.
That's why NAS's were invented.
Also with a NAS you could have a potential wank in the bath or something.
No downsides unlike being tied to your desktop.
Mismatched GPUs can be used for gaming with nivida to a ridiculous degree.
look up "dedicated Physx card" and educate yourself.
On top of that, brand of GPU rarely matters with SLI, you can even SLI a 4gb revision of a card with a 2gb revision, it's just the 4gb card get's locked to 2gb.
The dude can do what he wants.
Might have already had the evga card and the reference card went on sale as they tend to do and decided to add more processing power to his system.
If you put the reference on on the bottom you wont even run into the problem where the intake get's blocked.
You sure are grasping at straws now. What's your next problem, oh computer genius?
Reference cards actually have a pretty neet feature no one seems to acknowledge, they vent heat out the back of the case instead of just blowing it around inside the case, they are a pretty good choice for ultra compact builds because of this.
And i guess you didn't really trying on your next straw, huh? ">b-but sales" is not a really elegant way of disregarding one of the most important things about a product, price.
My setup is treating me just fine for now but I'm thinking of building a new box once VR starts going retail and the next gen of video cards are available.
The Asrock M8 caught my eye a bit back when it was on sale for around $300 because it came with a surprisingly good motherboard and power supply.
Shipping to my country killed the savings for me though, sadly.
I'd really like a smaller computer though.
