New Rig - Ryzen 9 5900x + PALIT RTX 3090 ?


Recommended Posts

Yeah it is a silly large amount of money - it hurt. I always think the CPUs deprecate quicker than GPUs, but who knows. Plus a current high end GPU will probably be able to do a mid range job in 4 years but a mid range card now will worthless by then but yes you've paid less. Its all very subjective. I just wanted to share my experience as I am more glad now than I was two weeks ago considering the recent news. I would encourage anyone on the fence for a 3090 to go for it, but its really dependant on personal circumstances.

 

P.s Anyone wanna buy a used, used 1080ti..... 🤣

...I know the current shortage situation makes people go a little bit crazy (OM this card is in stock, I should get it before it's too late) but sometimes it helps to take a breath.

 

That’s just it. How many breaths are taken sitting by the computer for hours on end, waiting for restocks, only to get beaten by the 1000s of people (and autofill bots) doing the exact same thing?

 

Meanwhile, suppliers and retailers are finding excuses to jack prices. The US tariff is a good excuse, even for cards not destined for the US. That could alleviate when stock normalizes/tariffs are cut, but they know people will pay.

 

As for the 2080ti, it should have taken a nose dive in price, but in practice, it hasn’t.

Very valid arguements both ways, thank you.

 

I guess my thinking is this: I've been reading the VR forums for the last few months. There, users with rigs comprable to the one I'm proposing are having excellent experiences in VR with the G2, with pretty high settings all round. So unless ED make changes that are going to drag those high end user experiences down (which I image would seriously damage their less well equipped customer base) I'd hope I'd have no reason at all to upgrade anything for at least the next 5 years. It's not like I'm going to get bored with (or get near to mastering!) what's available now.

I fly DCS in VR with a Reverb G2, and can confirm you'll want more than 10GB of VRAM if you want to keep Terrain Textures on HIGH, especially in The Channel and Syria, and probably in the upcoming Marianas as well.

That could actually explain why I have to keep them on "low" for Syria with only 8GB. Though not sure about Marianas, how much VRAM does water use? 🤣

Over water you'll be fine, but have you looked at the detail at the islands themselves? That will be a stutter-fest if you're out of VRAM.

Things cost money. Don't spend time justifying your purchases to random strangers on the Internet.

 

If they have the Asus Strix and you have the budget then do that.

 

Personally, for as much as I like flying in DCS I have no issues spending that kind of money on a video card if I get the satisfaction out of it. Time is limited and when I get a chance to sit in the pit I want it to be as awesome as is reasonable/practical.

Indeed, I use the "comfort principle": spend money on things you spend the most of your time on. For me that's my motorcycle, my home cinema system, and DCS (aka my PC).

Well the 3090RTX is definitely the best card I've ever owned. No buyers remorse at all. Had great fun playing through Cyberpunk as well with all the bells and whistles on. It will be interesting to see if the improvements in DCS World 2.7 will make better use of our GPUs.
