    what's going on with 6700XT or RTX3060TI? can't see any super bargain for these?

    • +1

      I have a feeling because they would be the more popular card, the 6700/50xt/3060ti/70 seem to be the sweet spot this generation. Both of these sit right between the edge of budget vs performance, they are good 1440p cards and will play max settings (even with a bit of RT for the nvidia cards) comfortably and push high frames in the games that you needed it. Any higher the price per frame becomes increasingly more expensive and that not much people play on 4k anyways to justify the higher tier cards. Any lower while the cost per frame may be cheaper but these cards are suitable for 1080p screens only and 1440p is pushing it.

      • I second this. I waited for AGES for the 5700X cpu to come on sale but it never happened…… yet. Had to grab one with the SE 10% off sale. As far as a 6700xt, waited a long time too. Pulled the trigger on a sapphire 6700xt nitro+ for $830 last week!! OUCH lol. But they are both the sweet spot for 1440p. You can find 6700xt for about $700 but imo they won't come down much more. Maybe a 3070 might be cheaper

        • Didn't look at the Alienware R10 with Ryzen 5800 and 3070? Went for around $2k, was good value at the time.

        • Nitro is a top spec model, I wouldn't feel too bad. Great card, enjoy gaming and ignoring the HODLers!

          • @xyron: Lol tyvm! Still waiting on a few more parts to arrive via mail. I needed a card that can keep cool during summer due to heat. Averages between 35-45°c in summer :-( lol

      • Don't know why people think this. The sweet spot is RX6600. All the 70 models are over $10 a frame.

        • Read my comment again….

          Its good value for money if you are looking for a budget card. But theres a lot more to pc gaming than budget setups…

    Good luck with warranty claim on msy as they still doing shaddy stuff even after lawsuit from ACCC. Bought something from them last year, broken after 6 months and in-store dont do online sale warranty claim. They instruct to claim through online portal form. Complete the form and until now still no reply, end up bring the case to ombudsman. Ombudsman step on it and finally they honour the claim.

      Did you have to pay for the return postage and packing? I was told that under consumer law, if a warranty claim is required, the business you purchased it from must pay for postage and returns to manufacturer. Was wondering if this is true??

      • I'm interested in this too, most of the retailers specify that returning the item to them is at the customer's expense (even for warranty claims).

    Version 3
    These numbers are from the latest Hardware Unboxed 12 game average benchmarks for 2022 (https://youtu.be/KugxMJFhx7k?t=616). It doesn't take into consideration Ray Tracing, DLSS, etc I am aware 3k res isn't a thing, but I averaged the 1440p and 4k resolution performance stats. I personally run a 1440p ultrawide, so 3k is about right for me.

    Note that the benchmarks used for these version 3 tables are different to previous tables/graphs so the $ per frame figures aren't comparable.

      Your work is much appreciated by this community, although I'm not sure average of 1440p and 4k is meaningful measure for this card. I don't think anyone would buy these for 4k.
      1080p and 1440p are the relevant resolutions for a card at this level.

    nice work, thanks, ill update in next post, my calcs show $8.72 per frame though at $449

  • 6600xt gigabyte OC for $469 at UMART with klarna $30 off.
