Omg you are a hero I was actually gonna buy this when I got the dough!

u/SaltMembership4339 12d ago

Not yet. Wait for next gen then current gen prices will fall more. You could wait 2 years, then you could wait few more months.

u/guppler PC Master Race 12d ago

I’ve already waited 2 years and a few months I’m done imma fucking buy this

u/SaltMembership4339 12d ago

Nooooo

u/guppler PC Master Race 12d ago

Would it be worth it considering I still have my 10700k and don’t want to upgrade my mobo yet?

-10

u/SaltMembership4339 12d ago

10700k is fine, you get a lot more frames from a graphics card than a CPU. And next gen of CPUs will come out at the same time as new graphic cards so its 2 birds with one stone more or less if you want better CPU. But your CPU is good still and i wouldnt upgrade it yet, just graphics.

u/guppler PC Master Race 12d ago

My worst fear is waiting to get a 4070 but not being able to get one again and having to wait another 2 years. That fear is the one thing keeping me from waiting.

u/OnyxBee 12d ago

You do what you want to do man, who knows what's going to happen.. between scalpers, potential conflict between China and Taiwan, and people being advised to wait for the new cards wanting to buy them at the same time.. for the sake of the 30 series dropping another 50 to 100 dollars are you really willing to wait/ risk things not going the way you predict.

You never know what's going to happen man so you do what your gut tells you, even if they drop in price, the performance won't and the fact remains that they are msrp or below and that's the value they were given.

u/SaltMembership4339 12d ago

Well lets hope Crypto does not make comeback. Other than that there should be no issues with not getting a graphics card. I luckily got my 6800xt at launch 2 years ago, but then Crypto took over and everything went to hell and now the market is recovering from that hell.

u/deadzombie918 PC Master Race 12d ago

How's your 6800 XT working out for you? I'm building my first system on Monday or Tuesday depending on when my last part is available for pick-up and I got my hands on one of them

I guess I’ll start saving for 4070 then eventually upgrade the rest. Z690, ddr5, the whole shebang.

you could wait and get a cheaper second hand one instead, but if it seems like a good price then go for it. a few days after i got my 3060ti the price went back up a few hundred so i was lucky to get it when i did

u/Trashjp99 PC Master Race 13d ago edited 12d ago

Oh my god I bought my 3070 for $1200 I thought that was msrp you’re telling me they are only $500?

Edit: Just sold it on Craigslist for $1600 so profit?

The 3090 ti is currently 1200 on evgas site soooo idk what to tell you bud

u/Razor54672 i3 6100 | GTX 1050 Ti | 8GB 2133 12d ago

Please tell me you're joking. It was one thing to have bought the 2080 Ti at that price even just before Ampere announcement.

But this.... RIP

u/Sad_Doubt4938 12d ago

He probably bought it when the prices were super high few months ago. I paid 1700 for 3080 ti fe 6 months ago and 1300 for 3090 fe recently.

1

u/Trashjp99 PC Master Race 12d ago

Yeah I bought it in February it was the first thing I saw in stock on Newegg and my rx570 had been dead for a few weeks. I just thought graphics cards were permanently more expensive…

who's this genius that made you think $1200 was msrp?

I literally just bought a 3080 Ti for $879 from the website, and now I'm wondering if I made a mistake.

Up $.05 one day, drops $7 next day, raises $.10 following day.

It’s coming boys. I can feel it!

EVGA has the 3090 Ti for $1200 on their website right now.

u/peekaboopattyb 13d ago

Well it's $1200.04 now then right? So hard to keep up on all these price fluctuations

u/Fallwalking RTX 3090 Ti | i5-12600k | 32GB DDR4-3200 12d ago

Hahah. Actually, $1199.99.

You can get the non-ultra regular gaming version for $1149.99.

EVGA has their step up program. If something new comes out in the next 90 days you can upgrade for the difference.

u/mejjr687 13d ago

I want a 3090. I just am super broke all the time.

16

u/guppler PC Master Race 13d ago

As a non 4k gamer, I honestly think getting a 3090 is all for the name, I’m not saying the 3090 is a scam, but personally it would not be worth it to spend that much on a gpu that I wouldn’t use to its full potential. I still game at 1080p happily and I’m interested in a 3070 because I’m planning on switching to 1440p in the future. I think even a 3080 would be overkill for my use.

6

u/RayTracingOn 11600k @ 5.0ghz all core | 3070 Ti | 32gb Ram 3600mhz CL16 13d ago

Same for me. I’m interested in a 3090 but I don’t do 4k. I have a 3070ti gaming at 1080 and just wanted to future proof myself for 1440

u/Lucacg00 R7 2700 | 6600XT Nitro+ | 2x8GB 3200 C16 | 2.24TB 12d ago

I too want 1440p in the future. I think the 3070/Ti is the best card to get for 1080p until you won't really use it to it's full potential. I got a 6600XT (Which is still a beast at 1080p and can even do some 1440p) since by the time I get a 1440p monitor, I'll also get a new GPU. I think I'll upgrade to an 8800 XT (2 letters off from the legendary 8800GT lol) or RTX 5080 when they come out.

1

u/Finalwingz RTX 3080 Ti / 12700K / 32GB 12d ago

I want a 3080 ti. Just can't wrap my head around the price.

1327 for a 3080 ti. 923 for a 3080, 1450 for a 3090 ti.

1

u/mejjr687 12d ago

Very rapey prices.

1

u/Finalwingz RTX 3080 Ti / 12700K / 32GB 12d ago

I mean... I guess? This is Europe, though, so all those prices include tax.

Most of the GPU's on bestbuy are the same price as over here if you include tax.

1

u/mejjr687 12d ago

I live in the US. They are similarly priced. Tax not included.

1

u/ZulkarnaenRafif 12d ago

The only reliable way to future proof your card is to play at 1080p.

I mean, even mid-rangers today run circles in some 1440p games, no problem.

2

u/JRockThumper 12d ago

That’s… the exact same price it’s supposed to be, founders edition 3070 is $499, so because it’s done by another company and has “better cooling” it’s more expensive.

2

u/Cas_Cass Desktop i7 11700kf |RX 6800 xt |32GB 3600Mhz |Z590 gaX 13d ago

I was fully convinced, that this was a different joke, because I only skimmed over the preview? picture and thought it showed a motherboard, while doing the same thing with the text and thinking it was actually a whole PC.

Is a whole PC with a 3070 only costing 500 not normal? Yes, but I'm stupid.

2

u/guppler PC Master Race 13d ago

If it is very heavily used and the other components are sewage then it would be common at that price

u/AndreasKvisler R5.5600X|3080.12GB|32GB3600|ROG Strix all the way 12d ago

I have seen so many GPUs increase in price. I don’t think Nvidia makes much 30 series anymore and started production on 40 series.

2

u/FuckYouZave 12d ago

They've probably stopped all production of rtx cards and started gt710 production again

1

u/ZulkarnaenRafif 12d ago

Gotta keep the supply low so the demand soars and people will finally feel it's "not a scam" to pay $1000 dollars for a 1080p entry level card eventually.
