I just picked up a new monitor (34" Ultra Wide 1440p 144MHz 1500R Curve Samsung Panel -VA) to replace my 3 monitor setup (24" ASUS 1080p). Now I need a new video card to drive the monitor.

My current rig is:

Intel Core i-7 4770k Processor
32GB DDR3 Memory
Gigabyte Z97MX-Gaming 5 Motherboard
Radeon RX 570 Video Card

This card is going to struggle to push anything more than low to medium graphics on games with this new monitor. Where I'm torn is the cost of new video cards.

If I'm looking hard enough, I can stumble across an open box 5600 for $200 or $230 new. A 5700 for $320 (open box) or $350 new. But at that point... why would I just not drop another $100 for the 6700 at $449?

Ultimately... that makes the 5700 a non player and I'm left choosing between a 5600 at $230 or a 6700 at $450. I'd rather not spend an extra $220 but I feel like the 6700 would probably be the last video card my current build sees.

Then what about the 20x series by nVidia? By paying a touch more I get Ray Tracing which is cool but I'm not paying for a 2080, for what I would pay for a 2070 I may as well snag one of the new AMD cards. A 2060 is going for $320 new... I don't know that Ray Tracing is worth nearly $100.

Better yet... do any of you fellow nerds have an itch to update and want to sell me their 5k/20x series cards?

Good looking out. I tried to get one to give to my younger son.
Fucking scalper bots? Fucking crypto miners? Other?

Does anyone know of any reason I couldn't just swap out the 1660 for a 3080 if/when I ever get one? Other than needing to wire for the 12 pin PSU connector?
There should be no issue, as they are both NVIDIA.

When I change between AMD and NVIDIA, I use DDU to wipe the drivers.
I've never had an issue.

Thanks. That reminds me, I need to load Windows onto a thumb drive before I start building.

My old RX580 took a crap around Black Friday, I didn't want to buy anything good to replace it as I wanted to wait and build a new machine around the RTX 30 line once they are actually available.

So I bought a 1050TI to tide me over. It was $110 with rebate. Now people want $300 for the damn thing. Crazy.

I'm running with a 1050TI as well, but it's not handling my VR stuff.

Holy fuck, I just checked my 2080 and it's like $1,500. People have lost their damn minds. Fucking crypto miners.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...0?ie=UTF8&th=1

I might just fucking sell it and be without a PC until the 4000 series come out.

I could buy like a mid-range gaming laptop to tide me over and still make out like a bandit.

Except at this rate you will have zero chance of getting a 4000 series. I suppose my 3090 at 1899 wasn't horrible if these prices continue, this is clown world for sure.

Ehh, who knows what 2022 will be like. Hopefully manufacturing is back to normal. And even if crypto is still a thing, I will camp my local Micro Center like a good little nerd.
