Basically paying a premium for early access (about 2 weeks early access based off trends).

Good link, thanks for that. Considering going this route and just picking up a FE now since we won't have to wait for blocks to hit the market.

I was expecting $400 for my 1080 and would probably take $375 for it. As a plan C let me know if you know anyone interested in a slightly used 1080.

What model is it? I had lots of people asking me for mine.

I haven't messed with VR. I am in the air about getting 2 Ti's so maybe I will get 1 and a VR headset instead. I budgeted $1,100 for the ti (shipping/tax included) expecting it to be $1,000. This new price point is making me want to buy a second and not have to deal with GPU upgrades for a couple years.

I sold my 6 month old MSI Gaming X 1080 for $400. For reference.

Which Ti are you going to go for? I am wanting an EVGA this run through.

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 7 hours ago

I'd say if you spent over $550-600 I would cancel and bump up to a Ti for the huge performance gain at $100-150. Not sure why you would order a 1080 the day the Ti was getting announced though.

Forum Topic "GTX 1080ti revealed"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 7 hours ago

In the stream he stated it has a higher OC headroom and can beat the 1080 by 50% on the stock cooler. I don't see the Titan X P overclocking high enough to beat that.

Usually 2-3 weeks after Founder's Edition. So by mid-end March hopefully.

Forum Topic "GTX 1080ti revealed"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 7 hours ago

Which is a good move. There are still founders editions 1080's sitting around and they don't move because they cost too much for mediocre cooling and lower clocks. Makes no sense why they ever cost more.

Forum Topic "1080ti is announced"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 7 hours ago

I have a feeling used values of 1080s plummeted with this announce. I'd think $400-450 is fair for a 1080. Hard to justify more when the 1080ti isn't too much more and can "overclock to 50% better than a 1080 with the stock cooler." Wonder what watercooling could yield.

Also no one is going to buy a new 1080 at $600-650 now. EVGA's ICx line just launched too and they are asking $675 for those. That whole series just got shelfed permanently until its about $550. I just can't believe how far off the rumors and leaks were with pricing on this one. Nvidia dropped a bomb.

Forum Topic "1080TI IS REVEALED TODAY"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 1 day ago

I think they are clearing stock because its just the cycle. It is time for new cards already regardless of price point. These new cards will likely outperform the 1070/1080 (I hope so being released so much later) and even if their price points are $500-700 they will sell because they are better.

Forum Topic "1080TI IS REVEALED TODAY"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 1 day ago

I just looked into this and it appears partially true. The rumor is that the founders edition available at launch will be Nvidia exclusive but aftermarkets should start popping up shortly after.

Which just means you can't get an MSI "Founders" or EVGA...etc

So Nvidia will be cashing in on all the early sales exclusively it sounds like.

He thinks AMD is releasing 1070/1080 performance GPU's at $150-200 respectively? That seems insane. I know Nvidia upcharges but I doubt its 300%

As in no aftermarkets just like the Titan?

Forum Topic "1080TI IS REVEALED TODAY"

I'll be somewhat salty if AMD's "1080ti killer" is like 30% cheaper than the ti. Only because having a G-Sync monitor I will go Nvidia regardless.

Forum Topic "1080TI IS REVEALED TODAY"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 1 day ago

I am doing it mostly for looks and a hopefully beautiful water loop but it is my first one so fingers crossed. I am coming off a 4790k/1080 so performance wise in gaming it will be basically the same thing. Just wanted to do a new build and put the effort in to make it really shine unlike my first.

Forum Topic "1080TI IS REVEALED TODAY"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 1 day ago

I believe AMD also has a booth set up at the event, Vega is scheduled to release at the end of the first half or the beginning of the second half of the year IIRC according to rumors.

Hopefully they announce full specs and pricing none the less.

Mine was too, but then Ryzen was announced and my wallet died on Amazon :P

I committed to my newest build back in October with a 6800k so Ryzen wasn't even an option. I realize Ryzen outperforms the 6800k but I got mine for $300 so I am not upset. I really wanted an X99 build anyways.

Forum Topic "1080TI IS REVEALED TODAY"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 1 day ago

Vega gets revealed today also right? I am hoping the competition and rumors of Vega outperforming the ti have made Nvidia price the 1080ti competitively around $800.

Wallet is on standby

If consoles don't die they will become significantly more expensive. I don't think the issue they have is space, its getting consumers to spend more than $400 on a console.

Forum Topic "PSU?"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

No, you have plenty of wattage. I am assuming you own the above list?

Under max load that system will only use ~%40 of the PSU. As someone else mentioned to me on here the wattage listed is also an overestimate by a good bit. At max system draw you are probably looking at closer to 180w opposed to the 210w listed.

According to the specs listed here on PCPP the NZXT's move almost twice as much air as the Riings. They move almost as much as the Corsair ML series apparently..

Forum Topic "Best ring-style RGB fans"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

NZXT AER are probably the easiest option as they can be controlled from CAM through the HUE+ and you will only need 1 box to control them opposed to Thermaltake Riings where you will need 3 boxes daisy chained inside your case.

Not sure, it recommends a GTX 260/ ATI HD 4850. More never hurts. You could find a used GTX 770 for like $70 I bet.

Forum Topic "Gtx 1050 and g4560"

Easily. That will get 100+ FPS in 1080p. You could probably do 30 FPS in 4k

Forum Topic "Replacement GPU Advice Needed?."

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

Probably be a good time for a new build. if you are on a low budget you can get G4560 which will still mop the floor with that very dated Athlon.

You can re-use your hard drives but this is a build option under $500 to get you into a much better system that will do good for 1080p gaming. If that is an option for you.

Forum Topic "FS - 3 month old gaming rig"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

It would be far cheaper to buy a 7700k and 1080/1080ti for your current computer.. I think people are asking why you want an upgrade from what you have because it seems fishy to spend all that money on a PC, use it for 3 months and sell it to spend more money on a PC.

Also, you won't get nearly as much as you put into it because used parts pricing isn't always great. You would be far better off upgrading your current build and selling off the 6600k/1070 for like $500 just make sure you update your BIOS to support kabylake before removing your current processor if you do this.

Forum Topic "Custom vs Pre-Build (sale price)"

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

Pre-built isn't necessarily a bad thing.. just likely not getting high end/quality components. This system would be significantly faster and last you longer and is $100 more (with SSD which I recommend). It can be made cheaper by sacrificing quality on some parts but if you are building it yourself I wouldn't skimp otherwise you might as well go pre-built.

At $1,000 that prebuilt was a pretty good deal, and you could technically of upgraded the PSU (if need be), and added an SSD for less than $300. However the 6700 is a locked processor and the 6700k/7700k will outperform it as their base clocks are higher and then they can be taken even further (especially the 7700k).

Not sure man. Maybe theres some tricks/settings but you saw they were doing it somehow.

I could track down my physical copy from 2007 I am sure and test it for you. But I am on a 4790k and a GTX 1080 so I doubt I have the slightest issue.

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 5 days ago

A 1080ti will handle 4k better than a 1080 would. So comes down to what you want to spend to maximize settings and the number of games you can hold above 60 fps in 4k.

Forum Topic "Console games that need ports/ pc games that need updates"

That may be but the link I gave you was to the first Crysis and running on a budget tier card. Just questioning why you think modern hardware still can't run it?

^ That is like a $500 build.

Same link he runs it in 1440p maxed minus shaders/shadows which was knocked down to high. Still 60+ fps

I'd probably stay with 3440x1440 personally, and maybe get a 1080ti because it will be the perfect combo for that res. Maybe the 1080ti will destroy 4k also though.

Evil_Paroxysm 2 Builds 1 point 6 days ago

Doesn't mean much. There were speculations of a 1080ti 9 months ago all over. Volta is still in speculation while 1080ti just got confirmed.

"There's a lot to take in here, but the key takeaways are the following:

It took NVIDIA about 13 months to go from the GK104-based GTX 680 to the GK110-based GTX 780.

It took NVIDIA about 10 months to go from the GK110-based (Kepler) 780 Ti to the GM204-based (Maxwell) GTX 980.

It took NVIDIA about 11 months to go from the GM200-based (Maxwell) 980 Ti to the GP104-based (Pascal) GTX 1080.

If NVIDIA follows historical patterns, if the 1080 Ti comes in March of 2017, then it could be anywhere from 10 months to 13 months before we see the first gaming-oriented Volta product (GV104). That would put the launch time frame at somewhere between January of 2018 (i.e. CES 2018) and April of 2018." -fool.com
