NVIDIA has been consistently better (and sure charged for it).

I’ve got the GTX 580, which was a total beast in its day. Now however, it’s hopelessly out of date and underpowered. Fascinating to see these things slide into obsolescence.

My current card is the MSI RTX 2080 SUPER Gaming X Trio and it’s pretty good. I’d buy the current gen if it was actually possible to do so.

2080 Super is still good enough for most things. I'd stop with that for now - and perhaps save for a later date. Perhaps just look at the memory and storage side for now. Graphics cards are not going to be a lot better availability for a few months IMHO.

Yeah, the market isn't in a good place right now for sure. Still, it looks like it might be getting better sooner than we expected.


We can only sit and wait to see what happens.

Be wary with any cheap ones on Ebay though - as there's a good chance someone selling a few will have had their usage from them.

Oh don’t worry, I only buy new stuff.
