Vega NOOB

17 March 2019 - 04:01 PM

Ok so I purchased a Asus Rx Vega Strix oc from Newegg for $269 instead of a Rtx 2060 

Mainly because of the 3 free games and it is pretty much equal to a 2060 minus the Ray tracing that we are still waiting for.

I will be the first to admit that I am a Nvidia fanboy so this was a very hard decision but I think I made the right choice.

I am have some issues adjusting as far as overclocking and temps & and for some reason I can use Msi afterburner without fan control problems.

I think My heat issues I suspect are from my case , the maserbox 5 pro is NOT a good case for airflow do not buy !!!

any advice would be helpful   


RTX 2060 or Vega 56 ?

07 March 2019 - 07:04 AM

So I have a $75 credit for Amazon and I need a GPU

Should I get a RTX 2060 for $275 minus the $75 Amazon credit

or $289/$259 mir Vega 56 Air boost from newegg making it $259 

 

The 2060 comes with 1 of 3 games 

The vega comes with 3 games

So I ordered 1 set of G skill 2x8 Drr4 3000  and I received 1 kits by usps and 5 days latter another kit by FedEx 

I was only charged once  so I am very confused 


Time for new Gpu

04 February 2019 - 05:00 PM

Ok so I sold my Gtx 1080 FTW hybrid  fo $400 and have squirreled back an additional $300 and I would like to get something new 

I game @ 1080p 144hz and I am unsure on RTX.

I could go with a 1080ti , 2060 , 2070 or even a 2080 I guess oh lets not forget vega 7 

Any input

12 January 2019 - 06:43 PM

Okay so I I have found myself in quite the pickle. I could either purchase a new monitor or upgrade my graphics card my system is as followed
8600 k at 5ghz
EVGA GTX 1080 FTW hybrid
16 gigs of ddr4 3200
And my monitor is an Acer 24 in 1080p 75 hz led
I have about $400 play with. My question is do I buy a new g-sync monitor to complement my 1080 should i I sell my 1080 for $300 and by an RTX 2080
