  1. If only haha. Been putting money aside for months for this 3080 launch!
  2. that's incredible coin for an apprentice and obviously an in demand trade to get into! Props to him then, if I had that sort of spare cash I can't say I wouldn't be excessive also haha. Better spent than my $100 bucks a week from Woolworths when I was 16 on weed and a bottle of wild turkey each weekend
  3. Everything is coming up that kid haha! Unlike the myth that red is faster for cars. Rgb DOES make the computer go faster
  4. Damn that's a lucky kid! Are the monitors a decent refresh rate? 3090 might be overkill if not and that's alot of money to dump into a card. I can't beleive the price they are asking for them in Australia. If its 5k already would hate to see the final bill. I know I would have been putting that sort of money towards a car if I was that age but each to their own
  5. AMD have their launch scheduled for mid-late october (forget the date). I can imagine Nvidia are saving the TI versions to stomp out that release if they come close! At the end of the day probably only need 10GB for the time being. By the time a nice 4k display is affordable their will definitely be newer cards
  6. Well I caved. Have ordered myself a eVGA 3080. Unsure when the stocks are going to get in so may be a while before I get my hands on it anyway. Got wayy too caught up in the livestream hype.. should be a nice upgrade to my 1070 and last until I build again
  7. What absolute monster! As much as I want to upgrade straight away will probably grab the 3080 when im interested in a game that's actually going to use it. My 1070ti is still going awesome for the games im currently playing That 3090 price point is just insanity. Would rather buy car parts!
  8. Some good deals in there! Almost makes me want to build an itx pc and stick it in the theatre once this gen of hardware comes out. What game(s) is everyone into at the moment? I've been smashing Valorant since it was released and haven't been this into a game since maybe COD MW2 back in the day... free to play aswell!
  9. Do you have usb c or thunderbolt? I think an external gpu box could do the trick?
  10. Had it for about 18 months now. Fitted when stock as a preventative measure before putting a bit more power so no 1/4 mile or direct comparisons unfortunately :(
  11. I have a single piece CF shaft myself and love it. I've read that they dont handle heat well (super close to zorst) and this drastically reduces strength. Is there much truth to this?
  12. Been meaning to do an update but been a bit busy building a house, studying, working etc... hopefully will have time soon! Clutch hasnt missed a beat and has never slipped on me. The car doesnt get thrashed though and havnt really put the clutch through much punishment other than a few short power skids. Ive heard reports of the opt 3+ holding 450rwkw if its treated well. Will test this theory when eventually upgrading to a precision 6466 in the next few years
  13. Got the same one in the old mans garage! Awesome bit of kit and way more reasonably priced than people would think
  14. Haven't seen much activity and have been lurking this thread for a while in anticipation of building. The time finally came where I had the space to set-up and build my first rig. I upgraded from a station I used throughout uni which had a I7-2700, Gtx 1050 2GB and 8GB of ddr3 RAM Rig I built has: - Ryzen 7 3700x - GTX 1070ti (cheap secondhand and will upgrade later) - Gigabyte x570 Auros Pro wifi - 2 x 8GB Corsair vengeance 3600mhz, B-die overlocked to CL16 - Samsung 970 pro, 512GB NVME - Intel 660p, 2TB NVMe - NZXT Kraken X62 - Seasonic focus plus gold 750W - NZXT H500i Bought a sit-stand desk as well to allow desk to be lowered for my sim setup which has worked a treat. Next to come is a GPU upgrade and a better second monitor when the wallet allows... Anyone got any good racing sim recommendations?
  15. Does your bum print money? You really don't mess around with this beast! Good stuff as always
