    Guys, I just bought an M17 R3 about 2 months ago. And then bought the Graphics Amplifier, only to discover the RTX 3000 series is coming out with sizes that will not fit inside the Amplifier. lol

    I am fine with that since I want to use the RTX 2080 Ti. I am just waiting for a good deal. Because of that, I was wondering if the current PSU and fan are ok with such a strong card. Or should I change to a new PSU and fan? If I have to change, what should I buy as a new PSU and a new fan? Thanks in advance for the help!

    A few days ago I almost pressed the button on a brand new desktop system with a RTX 2070 Super. Very glad I did not go ahead.

    I have made a quick table comparing NVidia graphics cards - I would be expecting a very serious price drop on the 1080s and the 2080s now. Very much worth holding out a bit more since the 3080 is a beast and will easily see us through 2+ years.

    The 3080 without the lid you guys think it will work? I know the 3090 is a lot thicker but the 3080? About to pull the trigger if it fits

    Ah crap! I just read about the specs for the series 3000! They look great! What to do? The lid is nice, but do you need it in
    Yikes! I see!!!!!

    Now I am conflicted! Should I wait or jump into the water for the RTX 3080/3090? Choices!!!!

    The power input plug won’t fit the opening of the AGA case
    If you want to go to stock route, only the Corsair CX will fit

    if all the performance you want is the 2080ti then get the 3070, same performance and a much smaller card.

    Ah! Thanks for the explanation! Ok, let's see what Corsair I can find. I am seriously considering the series 3000 now. After all, who needs the lid, right? Lol

    Yeah! I am seriously considering the series 3000! Cheaper for even more power. The size is the main issue. Though from what I hear, you really do not need the lid! Lol

    Seriously though, I am really torn...
