I'm confused. You sold a 1080 and then bought a 1080?I think I FINALLY found a video card. I'm picking up a GTX1080 STRIX off Kijiji for $650.
It's a little more than I wanted to spend, but it's also less than I sold the Gigabyte GTX1080 in the spring, and the STRIX is a better card, so I think I"m coming out ahead?
Decent deal? Some prices out there are still absolutely nutso (like a 1650 for $400=$500), so when I found this one listed at $700, I jumped on it and offered $650 which was accepted. I would have been happy to pay the $400 for the 1070 that was in the BST a couple days ago, but I think that one was artificially cheap by today's standards.
Nice photo too by the way!Not the most exciting, but 2 packs of the ThermalTake ToughFan 14's since it felt cheaper to get 4 and have a spare. The 2 packs are $65 vs single fan at $47. I know, I know, TT stole Noctua's design, but Noctua hasn't released the 140mm version yet, so what can you do!
Kind of miss the RGB in the front of my case now, but these seem to work a whole lot better. I could barely feel a draft through my radiator before with the Alphacool fans I had, now I feel a breeze. Noise profile sounds more pleasing to my ears, hopefully I can adjust my PWM curve down a bit more now.
Hopefully this brings down my temperatures as well, Far Cry 6 seems really taxing on the CPU and it's been hitting 85C routinely.
