    Jesus, if that's what it takes I'll just wait. I'm more looking for a 2070, 3070 at most, or hell a 3060 ti also sounds pretty good, yet even these are nearly impossible to find at anything resemble an acceptable price. It's ridiculous and I doubt the situation will improve anytime soon with these scalpers making tons of money.

    The 3060ti and 3070's are up way more often than the 3080's and stay up longer.

    Best way to get a 3000 series from Nvidia or 6000 series from AMD is to get a new SKU when it's launched. They don't have any pending orders and scrapers/bots don't buy them before configured to do so. That said it's still a pain and the only reason why I managed to get mine.. was because the store I ordered from put the order page up 2 weeks before official announcement for the SKU.

    Oh, joy. Maybe I'll indeed say fuck it and buy a PS5 after all, once these also become available at stores.

    @Sativex Hopefully so, thanks for the link, I'll take a poke at it from time to time when I'm not working. I'm aiming for 1440p and don't care for 144hz or whatever so I really don't feel like I need a 3080 anyway.

    EDIT: at worst, Canada Computers has an option for back orders. Maybe I'll fall for that, their prices are reasonable enough as I see it.

    Yeah, I had dumb luck on my side today and happened to check right as they were dropping. Got lucky as hell and now I just have to wait for the next truck to hit my local store.

    Revendreth was about 160fps average (250fps max, 120fps min)

    Jesus my R7 1700 @ 3.9Ghz must be bottlenecking that or something is fucked on my PC as GPU-Z says x1 PCIE. I run 3840x1600 and Red Dead online is roughly 30 to 45 fps tops... 32GB 2133 RAM clocks.

    You absolutely should NOT be a 1x PCI-E bus width. The PCI-E version 1.1 is just power saving, thats normal, but the width being 1x is negotiated at power-on.

    You need to physically unplug and replug the GPU in the slot about 3-5 times. There is bad contact. Dust or oxidation. Or one of the tiny capacitors next to each of the data pins is physically broken off.

    You can clean off GPU pin oxidation by using a pencil eraser too. Just "erase" the pins, it will brighten then up.

    The Ryzen 1k/2k series is not very good for gaming by todays standards (but hugely better than the K10/Bulldozers of the gen prior) and would see a large benefit running ryzen 3k/5k or latest intel CPU

    980 to 3080 was a pretty spectacular jump in performance. Gonna try some RTX gamings later tonight.

    I couldn't be more agree with you on this
