1080’a going to be used until it dies. Don’t have a grand to spend on a card

[-] [email protected] 30 points 3 months ago

I would nominate the Gtx1080 (actually the 1060 6gb too) as the best of the best GPU ever made.

The price/performance ratio at their launch was insane and even 7 years later, they're still valid options for budget gamers.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 3 months ago

That’s one. 1080 GTX. And it’s been about 6 years dutifully chugging away

[-] [email protected] 5 points 3 months ago

Literally just replaced my 1080ti after about 5 years, absolutely loved it

My 4S became unusable after the ... iOS 6? 7? update; nothing would remain running in the background and apps took several seconds to start.

Switched to Android and never looked back.

Edit: looked up a few dates and I think it must have been iOS 8.

A year or two ago, I needed a newer graphics card because my R9 390 couldn't handle the resolution of my new ultrawide monitor. This was when prices were crazy, everything was out of stock, and second-hand cards were selling for higher than the retail prices of brand new cards.

I got a 1080Ti for free from someone at my workplace because they hadn't used it for a while and would have felt bad selling it while prices were ridiculously high. He didn't want to take advantage of anyone. Good guy.

To pay it forward, when I upgraded my PC I gave away all the old parts (PSU, motherboard, RAM, CPU) for free. I posted about it, waited a day or two, and picked someone randomly for each item.

Be an absolute irresponsible moron and finance one like I did :) who cares about debt when you have FRAMES am I right?.. right..?

[-] [email protected] 16 points 3 months ago

Please pay off your credit card debt.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 months ago

Oh don't worry, I have. In fact my credit rating rocks because of my irresponsible-ness - just the way capitalism intended

[-] [email protected] 7 points 3 months ago

You don't need to. If you look at the relative performance table, you can get a feeling for a cheaper upgrade path (if you need it): https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/geforce-gtx-1080-ti.c2877

This took me down a rabbit hole, thanks for the link. Time to start saving my dollars. I didn't realise just how much of an upgrade a new GPU would be for me.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 months ago

That’s handy. Thanks

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 months ago

Bought a laptop with a 1050ti back in 2018, still use it to this day. Though I don't game on it as much as I used to. I've upgraded everything else in it that I could

[-] [email protected] 47 points 3 months ago

Accurate, my 970 lives on!

[-] [email protected] 13 points 3 months ago

My 980 is still alive, but I replaced it because I thought it had a bad fan bearing. I had just forgotten to remove the protective plastic on the fan shroud, so it peeled off a bit and the fan was hitting it.

It lived in my wife's computer until the psu I put in burnt up.

Tbh if Maxwell/Pascal DX12 performance on Linux weren't permanently degraded, I'd likely still be using mine

I sold my old parts on ebay when i built a new rig. Got about 100€ in total and paid 2000€ for the new one :|

The niced GPU I own is a RX590

[-] [email protected] 9 points 3 months ago* (last edited 3 months ago)

Radeon RX 580 until the VRAM dies to the idle @50°C temps or the support is removed from the kernel...

Here's a degree sign for you to keep in your copy paste buffer: °

[-] [email protected] 7 points 3 months ago

Superscript ^o^, nobody ever notices.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 months ago

I bought an RX480 6 years ago and while it probably can't run the most modern games, it's still a trusty work horse for the ones I still play.

At one point I realised that my games have been crashing with BSOD for a year because the cooling paste melted and spread all around the chip. Fixed it, started working with no issues.

Its right fan was so loud that I thought it was shredding some plastic part. I replaced it, was fine for a week, it's loud as hell again. But it's still working like nothing happened.

My notebook has two GTX 1080m sli. Still great for video editing and the light gaming I do occasionally.

The wife might need a hand me down as well

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 months ago

Was? No, no you really sucked GTX770 and the only reason I kept you for 2 years in 2020s because there was no other option during the crazy time.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 3 months ago

I went from gtx 770 to a 1080ti when it was released. 5 years later I'm still using the same 1080ti with no plans to upgrade.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 months ago* (last edited 3 months ago)

Gtx 770 is still a fairly decent gpu allbeit terrifically old

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

There is a Kissinger joke here somewhere, I am sure.
