Quoting: Duck Hunt-Pr0Get functional hardware..

This is a rather nonsense recommendation. You can't buy a functional GPU now. Neither recent nor old. They are non existent. I.e. old ones are not produced anymore and new ones are produced in minuscule quantities which makes them impossible to buy. Check the real situation first.

Have you looked on ebay? (I admit, I haven't in a while)

And by Functional, i mean performant to the task(s) you require it to to do.

I hate to be the bringer of bad news; But mining crypto coins very much outweighs having 1200 frames per second rendered in a videogame, in sheer practicality... Just in case that's your requirement.

You can buy Functional hardware by your definition, but for a complete absurd price. Maybe for your economy those prices still makes sense, but for most of the rest of the world they don't.

BTW, having 1200 frames on games is as pointless as investing that a lot of GPU power for some shitcoins that can process less than 10k transactions per minute. Crypto's in their current state are the next big shit to fuck up the natural environment.

Yeah, I need an AMD GPU that can run CP2077 with enough framerate to utilize 2560x1440 144 Hz adaptive sync display efficiently. Such kind of GPUs are non existent. I don't count ebay and etc. - that's just scalpers.

Quoting: slaapliedjeAnyone else actually able to upgrade their PC in the last few months?

After being looking to upgrade my rather old I7-4790k with a Ryzen 5900x, I finally got impatient and ordered a 5800x instead... Can't wait to receive it

Just upgraded

Now I will wait for my friend's dedicated Valheim server to be updated to see the improvement in our base... if I can actually move, then it is an improvement

Even the retail stores are being forced to sell at insane prices. Look at System76's prices for building out the Thelios. Like adding a 3090 is an extra 3k or something, when the card's MSRP is supposed to be 1500~.

I've given up for now, and just play my Commodore 64. :P

Just received my new 27inch monitor!! yeah baby I'm on 1440p now 😎😎
It's 60hz, but I'm gladly impressed with the quality of it ... it has a sturdy metal stand, and very heavy, (all of it up to where it clamps the panel) so it doesn't swing around at all, rest of it is plastic but with a very nice metalic colour. Also the stand rotates in all directions.
Just tried Valheim and at very high settings it can barely do around 50fps at 1440p, so buying a 144hz was not worth it, imho (I have 5600xt gpu), besides I'm not into competitive FPS.

I leave a link to where a bought it, in case someone from Argentina is reading this and is interested, good seller, +rep.

gaming aesthetics got broken when they started doing curved monitors :P
the viewing angle of humans the way the eyes are close to each other is enough for a flat monitor... curved monitors.. are really fit for fishes or horses.

Not into that not my taste, so much rgb makes me mad! if I wanted my room to look like a dance floor I might just as well hang a disco ball on the ceiling :P
besides RGB wastes electricity not very ecological.

I have a couple Dell monitors I bought a few years ago that were 1440p and 144hz with G-Sync... and I liked them a lot until they started randomly displaying weird.. dust? That's about the only way I can describe it. You know how the Etch-A-Sketch worked? And you'd shake it and the powder or whatever the hell was inside the thing would cover up where you wiped it away? The effect kind of reminded me of that...

Nice! Ha, been looking at a listing on amazon for a prebuilt computer, so I can get my hands on a 3080... and it comes with a random brand..., random x570 motherboard, and a Ryzen 7 5800x... but from the reviews of them gluing cabling... kind of shying away from that! Over the years I have learned to always buy ASUS motherboards, as I always regret it when I don't!
