By the time a nice 4k display is affordable their will definitely be newer cards
A new CNC operator started at work
16 yo kid
Wants to build a kickass PC
So far the build is up to 5k
He wants RGB everything and a 3090
His mom got 2, 32inch 4k screens from her work and they are sitting in his bedroom waiting for a PC !!!

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 :)

definitely a better idea to put that extra money towards a car after minimizing the build to reasonable utility at that age haha

apparently the company she works for made a boo boo and ordered 2 many monitors

she saw the error and whisked them away before anyone was on to it, and yes, 144Hz refresh rate

 

his nanny and pop just bought him a Mitsubishi dual cab 2x4 (second hand, but still worth 9k)

he showed me his pay slip last week when I questioned how much coin he would be outlaying for this build

2.2k per fortnight!!!!!!!!!!!

for a 16 yo paying no rent that's a lot of money!

 

back in the day, my first weeks pay when I started my apprenticeship (16 yo also) was $95     :asciidity:

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

same as @Boosturd 

my weekly expenditure has lowered by one tank if fuel (over the past 7 months) so that is my savings for a new card
