The 6900 XTs were cheaper than this for a long time. I thought prices peaked?

It can be found for less than $1300, but you have to be proactive. If you wait until it shows up on here, it's probably already out of...

Wait. Techfast had them below $1200, the ti below $1300 a couple of weeks back. This week PLE had it for $1230, I hopped on that one. A few...

Bought the 1tb Samsung 980 SSD, building a new PC & nearly have all the parts I need. Got some pretty good deals throughout, $1250 for an...

It's solid, if it didn't have the cord I'd still be using it(it suddenly started irritating me)- the wireless version is just too pricey....

Same sort of story comparing the original 2080 to 2080 ti- but the price range was even bigger iirc? As for the gap between the 3060 &...

Raytracing & DLSS could certainly hinder the 6700xt. Regardless, what you said could also be applied to the 3060 & 6600xt relative to the...
16/09/2021 - 16:39
Agreed but I feel the 3070 just hits that sweet spot- the 3060ti trades with the sometimes similarly priced 6700xt but the 3070 is...

For anyone else, the PLE hyperlink goes to the $1229 XC3, the link below is for the $1329 FTW3 which is slightly higher clocked which OP...

Funny how the word funny can be used to describe something that brings joy & concern.
16/09/2021 - 12:43
That's unfortunately just the market as it is & it's impossible to say when it will normalize.
16/09/2021 - 12:40
Ordered one myself an hour ago, was hesitant to link it myself because it wouldn't allow me to 'add to card' on Android- I got through on...

Techfast deal from last week? I'm annoyed that I missed that. Haven't seen anything close to that since then. Got my eyes on: 3060ti,...

Won't make a huge difference to gaming unless whatever you're playing requires pcie4 speed SSDs or higher speed RAM. While some modern...
14/09/2021 - 20:04
The CPUs will perform similar enough, the only improvement is the mobo- so you can choose $300 more which is all that will make any...

In this busy market, new hardware is going to cost more- leaving older hardware at relatively the same price so in terms of value, you...

They seemingly left that out so you can guage the value of the GPU versus buying one yourself. To put simply, you're spending a little...
14/09/2021 - 17:37
They're not really trending downwards though- they're wobbling up & down. There were much better specials in June/July, when I first...
14/09/2021 - 14:29
Not noticeably- you'll occasionally gain a few % more frames in gaming but with 12 threads & 6 powerful cores, you'll be fine for a very...

"PSU, motherboard, cooling and case" none of that shit helps with FPS. A bad PSU is a hazard, just get the specific features you'll...

In terms of general computing, CPU & SSD are frankly the only things you'll notice, sometimes the GPU depending on the kind of program...

I'd imagine for gaming, you'd get slightly better value from a Ryzen 5 3600/i5 10400f with a 3060ti. Techfast had such at ups below $1500...
09/09/2021 - 14:14
Techfast had 3060ti PCs below $1500 around EOFYs(with R5 3060 or i5 instead), around about when GPU prices began to flatline but similar...

Did Techfast prices shoot up since you posted? Could've sworn they were cheaper earlier in the week,
03/09/2021 - 00:39
It costs as much as a Series X which has a superior GPU, not to mention CPU, RAM, SSD, case, controller, HDMI 2.1 cable. The value is...

But stock performance is virtually identical, right?
09/08/2021 - 21:47
I blame the GTX 10xx (laptop) series for being such great performers relative to their desktop counterparts. They set such high...

What's wrong with the mini? A cursory Google suggests that it's as good by standard, many mini variants outpacing several standards.
05/08/2021 - 15:25
Depends, for a basic playable experience? A decent phone or cheap laptop could work. For competitive(consistent 240fps, broadcasting, etc)?...
