Decided I was tired of HODLING as I had been using the mighty GTX 1070 that has now graciously served me for the past 7 years, ever since i purchased it from this deal.
For me and my use case this card should serve well, and the price is just good enough and will pair it with the 5800XD3D.

To those stronger than I, Hodl on Hodl Army!

    Look inside you and be strong

  • Expert thoughts on replacing my RTX2070 with this? I am sorta in that in between period where its not worth getting a whole new PC just yet but I have a bit of cash lying around for a small upgrade. I was going to try and find a 2080ti but they are hard to come by, the 8gb of vram just isn't cutting it for me anymore..

    • +3

      Alternative would be a used 3080 or 6800/6900xt

      • I should add power is my biggest restriction as I only have a 500w PSU, its a good quality one but I am worried going up a generation might cause issues - I remember the 30 series had a power spike issue when they came out, did they end up resolving it? I haven't been in the pc building space in a number of years..

        • +3

          I'd go 4070 super if power supply is an issue

        • Do you want my 3080ti? I've upgraded to 4080s lol.

          • @Tbargain12: Free or OZB mates rate?

            • @netsurfer: Haha I wish I was rich enough to give a 3080ti away for free, what would be a reasonable rate?

              • +2

                @Tbargain12: There seem to be a few 3080 ti’s on fb marketplace for $750-$800 atm

                • @KSinny: They can keep it. Delayed responses, located on the other side of town, reluctant to demo, no receipt &/or remaing balance of warranty which is not much. Plus for a little more money i bought the 7800XT & haven't looked back

                • +1

                  @KSinny: Classic fb marketplace with massively inflated prices. 3080ti was already a 'bad' value card compared to a normal 3080 (5% faster), now even a 4070 super is faster and brand new is close enough in price compared to a 0 warranty used card.

      • +1

        Yeah my 6800xt still plays everything decent.

        • Yea… Got mine second hand for $460 and it's been solid.

    • +1

      How do you know VRAM is the issue?

      • -1

        Real time monitoring of resource uses shows that vram is the shortfall

        • +3

          What resolution are you playing at? If it's less than 4k it's unlikely VRAM is really the issue. Resource monitoring is probably showing allocated VRAM which is not the same as used VRAM.

    • I replaced a 2070 super with this and I'm pretty happy with it.

    • upgrade the psu and gpu if you can afford it, both can always be used in future builds easily

      • In all honesty, and I could be off here, but at the point of buying and installing a PSU, the effort required I would rather just wait and build a whole new unit. I am kicking past self for not maxing out the PSU..

        • Removing and reinstalling a PSU is a 10 minute job

          • +4

            @vinni9284: Not for someone that cares about cable routing and management it isn’t.

            • @doobey1231: Is your PSU modular? Mine isn't… And it's a real pain.

              • @nobro25: Even if it was modular you shouldn't use the cables from your previous power supply since their pinouts can be different which will cause damage to your components.

            • @doobey1231: it can be done in 10 minutes if you know what you're doing. For an old pc you're going to upgrade, don't even bother.

              Also, 10 minutes/30 minutes/1 hour who cares, negligible timeframe.

    • I've upgraded from 2080 and it's night and day difference. Don't get thrashed by buying an overpriced used 3080 or a higher spec new Nvidia

    • +1

      I went from 3070 to 7800XT and it pretty much fixed most VRAM issues I was having and helped everything run smoother. I don’t give a shit about dlss/rtx

  • +2

    Would prefer 7900 GRE since its OC potential.

  • +4

    GTX 1080 is almost on it's last legs.

    Still not sure i can justify this sort of cash tho

    • +4

      You can get a whole PC + 4060 from techfast for around this price

      • +19

        Sure but then you have a 4060…

        • But 4060 is OK for 1080p.
          I play mostly SC2 and older titles :-)

      • +5

        Why do you think it's $800 🙄

        Not saying that's a bad value PC, but a 4060 isn't close to a 7800 XT…

    • If it helps, that ARGB strip looks really nice. :) Think of the colours!

    • I've got this GPU and it's awesome value for money. Buy this and sell your GPU. They go around $100 - $200

  • Was: $869

    4.6% off - 1.2% surcharge = 3.4% saving

    • I was thinking about this as well.

      Thanks for the math!

      • They have bank transfer option for some and instore saving also no surcharge.

    • +7

      Nah, because you'd be paying the surcharge on the older price too. It actually works out to be 4.6029919447640% off because you're now paying a lower surcharge than you would for the older price, for a total savings of $40.48

      • -2

        Still ~3.4% saving as the percentage is too small to make a big difference.

        $40 off (3.4%) - 1.2% surcharge ($9.95) = ~$30 saving (3.45%)

        • Well, no.

          • @Traffic Cones: Why no?

            $838.95 is the total after surcharge? Anyway bank transfer is fee free.

            • @Bii: Before: $869 * 1.2% = $879.43
              After: $829 * 1.2% = $838.95
              Savings: $879.43 - $838.95 = $40.48

            • @Bii: If you really don't understand after EspadaV8's explanation…

              You say that the percentage is too small to make a big difference, yet you include the surcharge anyway but only AFTER the discount, not before. Makes no sense.

              Comparing best case after discount to worst case before discount is not apples to apples man. If you paid with bank transfer before discount, you paid $869. If you paid with bank transfer after discount, you paid $829, so the difference would be $40. If you used card/paypal for payments instead, refer to EspadaV8's comments.

              • +1

                @Traffic Cones: My bad for not including the surcharge on the RRP. I missed that out and I believe same to many people that's the reason no one likes it. Most of the time my brain would just compare the RRP (before surcharge) with a competitor until making final pay. Do they lower their price by 1.2% to price match a competitor? I very doubt that.

                If the competitor has the same RRP (no surcharge), then my first calculation is still true (maybe even better).

                "The percentage is too small to make a big difference" I refer to the surcharge % which is significant when for example a 20% surcharge but unlikely.

                Thanks for clarifying that. Just a little error to @EspadaV8 maths: 1.2% —> 101.2%

                I find another way of calculating this which is more friendly to the eyes: saving diff ($40) + surcharge diff (48c)

                Good to have a brain exercise. Cheer :)

                • +1

                  @Bii: Yeah fair point about competitor's prices, didn't consider that. I was thinking more along the lines of you save this much if you were to buy from the same place. Different ways of thinking, always good to hear other's point of views :)

  • Op, do you mean 7 years and 9 months? 🤔😂

    I'm still with my 1080Ti from my pc from 2014. The 1080Ti was the only upgrade in 2018. The entire system is a bottleneck for that gpu now.
    Thinking about buying a new pc this year and AMD announces the AM5 platform. 😪

    CPU: AMD FX-8320, Vishera 32nm Technology
    RAM: 16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte 970A-UD3P (CPU 1)
    Graphics: 3071MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (ASUStek Computer Inc)
    Display: DELL S2721DGF (2560x1440@144Hz)
    2794GB Seagate ST3000DM001-1CH166 (SATA )
    931GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO 1TB (SATA (SSD))

    I need a refresh.

    • +6

      You can always just upgrade the platform now and stick with the 1080Ti for a bit longer. That Piledriver is (profanity) ancient though and is due for retirement.

      • +1

        Yep, agreed! I didn't consider this.

        I thought I'd just retire the entire thing. But now, I quite like your idea. I'll probably have to buy a working gpu and swap it out on my current build before I donate it. Won't be too hard from gum tree or FBMP.

        Looking at the 7800X3D, MSI Mortar or Tomahawk and whatever RAM deals come across my way. I want a really swanky nice looking case but no one ever posts those here on ozbargain.

        • +1

          I’d suggest having a look at Nebula’s BYO GPU deal. Could be tempting.

        • +3

          If you don't mind fishtanks, the Montech King 95 Pro is my favorite new case on the market. Good thermals, curved glass to set itself from the O11D and other clones, and comes with the full set of side illuminated fans for a PCquarium setup (minus AIO). Plus comes in other colors than black and white. I think I spent more for the 4000X a year ago

          Not the most cost effective value build, but you get a pretty fishtank case with trimmings, sweetspot RAM for a Zen 4 setup (non RGB version is $5 less, and you might get a cheaper kit if you manage to catch one of Look Up's deal), an ATX board for aesthetic, and an B+-tier PSU. Just add a cooler (don't need an AIO for a 7800X3D, but you might want one for aesthetic reasons) and you're good to go.

          • @[Deactivated]: Please excuse me while I go away and foam at the mouth at this list and in particular, the red version of the case you linked. It looks more maroon to me, so will have to check it in real life, but, by golly, it's gorgeous!
            I currently have the NZXT Phantom Red, yes, red is my favourite colour.

            I think those prices are quite decent. Like you said, catch one of Look Up's deals, I do want an ATX board. Maybe I should bump up to an A tier cultist list PSU, or just stick with this, depending on pricing. The Thermaltake Peerless ones are great value. But these videos confuse me:

            Air Cooling is Dead: Thermalright Frozen Edge 360

            Air Coolers vs AIOs

            Big thank you for taking the time to put to get a PCPP list for me. 😍 @tatsulotto

            • @lordra: Also, this crazy video from Hardware Unboxed has given me plenty to chew on. But the Eagle isn't mentioned on there. Is it new? YTubes gives me nada on it.

            • +3

              @lordra: These titles are a bit clickbait-y because that's what you need to do on YouTube nowadays to get views. In general the TL;DR is that you need to have at least a 280mm radiator for AIO to start pulling ahead of high end aircooler in terms of performance (sound is another thing, but you trade fan noise for pump noise so its about even in my book).

              The X3D CPUs, and especially the 7800X3D are kind of special where they run hot because of their design, and not because cooling is inadequate. For a high end Intel system, it starts to get so hot on all core loads that you need a big water cooler to adequately cool it because it uses a lot of power. For the X3Ds, they get hot because whatever heat they produce has a hard time dissipating due to the 3D cache layer acting as insulation on top of the die. Otherwise, the 7800X3D has the same package power profile as the lowly 7600, its a 65W TDP CPU in all but name, you can cool it with a Wraith Stealth.

              The Eagle is very new, and motherboard review nowadays are kinda sparse because every manufacturer releases like 6-7 variants of basically the same board with slightly different features. In general with motherboard shopping, you just pick the cheapest board that matches your needs and you're good to go, don't need to overspend. You can checkout Newegg as well, they've finally gotten rid of the COVID-era pricing for shipping, and it opens up a bigger variety of board. Free shipping for orders over $450. From their free shipping eligible list:

              https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/asrock-b650-livemixer/p/… - Asrock B650 LiveMixer. Great board, and a steal at $250 compared to our current board pricing, as long as you don't mind the godawful orange coloring.

              https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/oloy-32gb/p/N82E16820821… - 32gb CL30 6000mhz sweetspot RAM for Zen 4. Pricing is about similar to what we get locally, but that's not bad when you're trying to just load up to get the free shipping.

              Just need ~$40 from something else to qualify for free shipping, just to consider. No PSU though, and the AIO cooler option seems worse than what we can get locally. Maybe a NVME or something

              • @[Deactivated]: Jason from PC Builder did mention the Eagle actually. No one is talking about the ASRock. The comments on that video said ASRock was losing the paid reviews war. But the board looks bloody brilliant, especially if paired with a WHITE King 95.
                I found the CPU for $582 at eBay. Almost the same.
                PCCG is only in VIC, I'm in NSW, the $45 shipping kills it for me. Will have a look around in NSW to see what I can find, re the case.

                Also, I added to cart and went to checkout only to realise that NE adds 10% GST to the price, so a $250 item will become $250+$25 (annoying). No way around this me thinks. If I could, then that would be just bonkers and I'd get a few more bits from NewEgg.

                • +1

                  @lordra: Centrecom stock the case as well (not sure if in Red though). Last I checked the case came with free shipping on PCCaseGear as a promotion, but now that its on sale for $179 they probably stopped offering it.

                  • @[Deactivated]: Mate, I see NewEgg has good prices on some boards that are Open Box/refurb. Are these any good?

                    • +1

                      @lordra: I wouldn't touch those, seems like its more hassle than its worth for oversea buyer.

                      • @[Deactivated]: Thanks mate. That ASRock is really tempting me. 😅
                        I'm sitting on it and seeing if I can find the Eagle you linked at a good price, then I can buy. I want a BARGAIN! 😄

    • As tats suggested. Your 1080 Ti is definitely being majorly held back.

      Go grab yourself a 7800X3D, am5 board and 32gb of ram from the various Ozbargain deals and you'll be good for a while still I think! 1080 Ti is still decent! 8320 is absolutely bonkers slow compared to current gen CPUs.

      • +2

        Yep, I agree, 1080Ti is the mistake the NVidia made and is still kicking themselves for. 😅

        Gamer Nexus put out a video about it a couple of days ago.

        I just need a nice case, a well priced motherboard, and it'll be good!

      • @ReaperX22 what happened to Tastulotto's account?

        I took your advice.
        Bought the 7800X3D off AliExpress, will get here in a couple of weeks.
        ASRock Livemixer $250 from NewEgg USA, had an uncle visiting, so it was good timing
        Lexar ARES RGB 32GB for $160.
        Montech KING 95 Pro Mid Tower Case Black for $180

        It's happening!

        Now I'm hunting around for a PSU and CPU AIO Cooler, then it's happy days!

        • Nice! Hope it goes well!

  • Really need to replace my RX 480, it's been starting to fail with graphical glitches and taking the computer down. Trying really hard to see what's released at the end of the year though.

  • +3

    AMD ftw baby

    It’s a pity nvidia is focusing only on dumb AI and pushing out overpriced, underperforming rubbish

    I know people love nvidia and will suck them off at every chance, but it’s getting ridiculous

    • I don't think either company has done anything great this gen… both are not interested in this space and have released sub-par cards or ridiculously priced ones.. i have the 6800XT which i bought used for $570 a year ago, this card is not much better than that and it's definitely not worth this price range if you consider the 6800XT was released like 3 years ago .. $200 less for same performance 3 years later. Pretty lame.. and worst of all, $ per frame wise this is a card that's fairly high in that list in terms or "value"…

  • -1

    Galax GeForce RTX 4070 1-Click OC 2X

    I'm considering this over the 7800xt. The 3-5% fps worth over all the Nividia only features? Also seems to pull 60-70w less.

    • I'm waiting for an nvidia drop too, every nvidia card I have had has just worked where amd has performed poorly in some games or needed tweaking, just my personal experience

    • +1

      I wouldn't get either card to be honest but if you have to and value DLSS then RTX, if rasterization is good enough and FSR is fine for you (Quality mode only) then AMD will be ok too, i have 6800XT and a 3060 and i have had 0 issue's with 6800XT whereas i've had many game crashes and a lot of DDU's and reinstall of the nvidia drivers for the 3060 so ymmv.

    • +1

      That RTX 4070 was $749 during Easter break from CentreCom ($50 off from the Easter Egg hunt and the listed price was $799). However, CentreCom raised the price immediately after Easter holiday, but weirdly, CentreCom sold out on those in quite a few stores after Easter (at the new / current price).

  • Or there's this: https://www.umart.com.au/product/asrock-radeon-rx-7800-xt-st…

    If you have a white build.

  • I'm still on my 960m, which is equivalent to a desktop 750 Ti, but I am planning to do a seven generations jump (LOL) and go with the 7900 GRE instead.

    • 940m here :) It struggles even with YouTube n stuff after I switched to a 4k monitor..

    All you hodl newbs, I win with my:

    i5-2500K | RX480 8GB Nitro+ | 8GB DDR3

    • 2nd gen Intel? Quad Cores CPUs were not cheap back in those days. I remember I had my first laptop with Core 2 duo and a Pentium desktop running windows xp. Lots of viruses to be mindful of. Downloading and installing can take hours.

    • RX 480 8GB is shining example of a good graphic card. Still running mine too, although it has started glitching and bringing my system down recently. Can I hodl until the RX 8000 series comes out 🫤

    • I come close, but you're still the king.

  • Wouldn't waiting for another GRE deal be better?

  • What is sapphire with its after purchase support (e.g. warranty repairs)
    I bought a sapphire 6800 xt that was used in mining and it lasted about 6 months until recently.

    I've thought about seeing if there is somewhere that can repair it around Sydney but for the same cost figure I would possibly just get it new.
    I heard that Asus had the best warranty service in Australia but don't know if that can be backed up or not.

    • Quite many bad reviews on the mining gpu in the last few posts and that hold me from buying it. I think the recent one comes with 1 year seller warrant so you should still be able to get a refund? But still I'd expect my gpu to last at least 5 years. The risk of failure is high.

      • Unfortunately it was a private sale.
        I went into the deal knowing I could have issues with the card but I asked as many questions about the environment it was used in and it seemed like it would be okay.

    • +1

      All overseas, have to go back to Taiwan via service unfortunately.

      Only Gigabyte, Asus & MSI have local teams.

    • Was that from the previous deals here on OZB?

      • No this was a private sale, bought it at the end of the crypto mining boom around June 2023 for $650.

  • +1

    Umart/MSY/PCByte have an asrock 7800xt for $769 atm.

  • At what price is this card good though? It's about on par with a 4070, a bit stronger, but also a 3080 and a 6800 XT (and 6900XT obviously).

    6800s, 80-90% the performance for $650-700, yeah maybe at $750 these are good?..

    These are available for $799, heaps of them? mwave, pccg, and msy all have models for $799, MSY granted is the original cooler so I'd skip that (at that price).

    I'd go get the mwave Asus dual OC one if it were me, maybe this cooler is much better I haven't looked into it.

  • Still rocking an EVGA GTX1080 Superclocked OC from this deal: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/409861

  • OP, back at the same price, so mods have fixed it.
