Build help GTX 980ti

Recommended Posts

I know that between VAT and any added tech import duties there may be that prices can get nuts, but the same would apply if you decided to get the 980ti.  What I read in your first post felt more like "I paid $600+ for the 970 when I could have gotten the 980ti for less".

wasn't pascal's release date pushed back?

I mean I suppose I could wait.

there hasn't been anything confirming a push back, just rumours surrounding the availability of HBM 2.0.  Since AMD has priority access to supplies of HBM 2.0 due to their cooperation with hynix during HBM development, they get first shot at HBM 2.0 stocks.  Some have suggested that this would impact Nvidia's ability to procure the new ram and therefore push back the new gpus.  It is possible th is will happen, but at th is point no one knows hynix's expected volume, and frankly everyone makes the erroneous assumption that AMD has the operating capital necessary to fully absorb successive production runs.  WIth their financial situation as bad as it is I strenuously doubt they have the ability to corner the HBM 2.0 market for even a short while.  Honestly there may be a slight delay, on the order of a month, between AMD and Nvidia, but I  can't see anything beyond that, and every source I can find still has the Pascal launch in the first half of 2016.

How much are these Pascal GPU's gonna run?

That's the rub, 10X faster supposedly, but no one knows for sure where they will be introduced.  And the plan was to let the pro market get them first then distribute to the consumer market....sounds to me like 3k+ card with the specs they are advertising, but that is just a guess.  If somoene can cite a source that has cost please do.

and as I typed it I found one

oh sorry disregard that was pricing on TitanZ...but should be around there

sorry should have looked there, there is $30 rebate on this deal too bringing it to 599.

For the last couple cycles at least Nvidia has kept new product prices within about the same range as their predecessors(Titans ~$1000, x80s ~$500, x80ti ~$700, etc).  The new chips, 16nm process instead of 28nm, could be more expensive, particularly if yields are low or if they try to recoup costs from their abandoned 20nm attempt.  The HBM 2.0 is also new, so between per gb cost and the research costs of integration(not to mention the expected much higher total ram per gpu) could tick prices up some.  That said, I honestly don't expect more than a 50-100 dollar premium on a per-tier basis, though I fully expect them to hold off much longer on giving us a 1080ti than they did this cycle(which may also explain why the Titan Z is priced more in line with a Quadro than the Titan X, as the 980ti's performance essentially rendered the just released titan x useless)

WTFux

3000 is enough to build 2 more copies of my current machine!

I'm just not going to be able to have shinies....   :(

 

In a year or so when beta PU comes out or close to it, I'm going to want some help choosing parts to build myself a quality machine.  My last build has been working quite well for 3 years old, and would probably continue working exceptionally well if I just got a new GPU for it.  Trouble is, I need to get a machine for my gf, so I'm going to upgrade my existing GPU for her and then build a brand spanking new one for me :P    If I can afford it...  (I can, but I don't exactly want to right at this moment, still saving up for a house)

WAIT, its not that cheap, it works out as a Grand Total: £615.98 (£489.99 ex VAT&del ) for me.

I can get one here cheaper in the UK for £529.99 (£441.66 ex VAT) https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-282-EA

How did you get £489.99?

isn't $629 US    £407?  Mail in Rebate  $599 becomes  £388.40  , then yes VAT :P

Great price. I'm sitting tight with my 980Ti until Pascal hits. 

I'm also sitting tight, hoping when Pascal finally drops I will pick up a 2nd 980. Unless it truly is the second coming of Christ like the fanboys say it will be.

It'll be good, but no way in hell is it going to be as good as hyped, it just isn't possible from a die shrink.  Honestly, the biggest gains will likely only come from nvidia pascal cards that are sli'd  deep using the greater memory bandwidth(not to mention 16gb worth per card) from HBM 2.0, AND if running on an intel chip/mobo with Nvlink(which seems pretty unlikely, as only IBM has said they were going to do it for their HPC business) since nvlink would allow FAR better sli scaling than pcie does, including the ability to use each card's vram additively.

      Alright so after following other's builds, talking about purchasing another pre-built PC and being reminded I'll overpay and get less...here's what I've come up with: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VXFFWX
      Last time I built a PC was about 4-5 years ago so few questions:
      CPU - i7 vs i9
      Is it worth grabbing the i9 now or is the i7 8700 just fine?  Why? Is the cooler I picked ok? Motherboard
      Completely guessed on this one, bad, good? Case - Mid vs Full
      I like the look of the full size cases, but more money.  I won't have any cd/dvd drives.  Does the full tower cool any better?  Is there any advantage beyond the actual space? Video Card - GeForce 1080ti
      I'm finding all kinds of these out there.  Does the brand matter?  What detailed specs do I need to look at?  All I've seen is the 11gb version that I want. Memory
      I'm going to get 32 gigs of memory, does it matter if I get 2x16 or 4x8?  I didn't know exactly how dual channel works and if better to have all 4 slots filled or if not relevant. I see options for 3200 and 4000, is the 4000 worth the price or should I just pick up 3200? Hard Drive
      SSD vs m2.SSD vs PCI-E SSD?  I'm lost on m2 and PCI.  I see both labeled with some Octane drives, but PCI-E seems more expensive.  What do I want here m2 or PCI-E and which one?  I haven't followed how the tech works, read some, but still not fully getting it. Power Supply
      Again guessed here, assuming 1k is ok? Sound Card
      Are sound cards relevant anymore or is onboard sufficient?  Picked a soundblaster one out, but not sure if I need it. Fans
      I just chose some, assume I need 4 for the case, are they right? Do I need more or some different? All suggestions welcome, so be brutal with me if I've chosen something completely off.  I'd like to stick to higher end stuff, but if it's a waste please let me know.

      Hi All. First post here. Tried searching a bit, but didn't see anything already mirroring my situation.
      With the release of alpha 3.0 I've gotten back into SC a bit, but my gaming rig (built in 2010) is definitely showing its age. I'm not sure if its my RAM or CPU thats really holding it back. I suppose its also possible that with the game being unoptimized, the performance I'm getting is just how it is. Anyway, I'm looking for upgrade advice for my current PC. I'd like to keep the upgrade cost around $500-$700 (I'm not trying to build a whole new PC if possible).
      Current Rig:
      Intel i7 950 | ASUS RAMPAGE III GENE X58 Exp | MSI GTX 1060 6GB | 12GB DDR3-1333 OCZ Gold (triple channel) Corsair H60 | Antec mini P180b | 850W Corsair TX850W  | 2x Acer 24" Looking for advice on what parts to upgrade. I also currently have 1 sata3 SSD and a couple of standard 1TB HDDs. I'm basically thinking I need to look at RAM or CPU, but that means a whole motherboard swap as well, so I'm really not sure what I can get for ~$500. I've been out of the PC building loop for awhile now. (like I said I last build in 2010). Looking forward to your help!

      So, long story short, my GPU fried after a bad accident with some thermal paste and I must pick a new one.
      Basic data: I have a i7 2600k ( admittedly old, it's going to be the next thing I switch), 16 gig of ram and a SSD for SC.
      So, to keep it short, which one would you pick between a Strix RX580 8GB and a Cerberus GTX 1070TI 8 GB and why?
      Thanks

      Hey guys looking for some opinions on a build for a client
       

      He plans to use it for gaming but its also intended for schoolwork and general work. The main request was that it was not "slow" for general use (MS word/web surfing) and to play rainbow 6: Siege and other games. Im not sure if they have a monitor but ima say its for 1080p gaming
      Would you guys change anything?
