    Yup, there are two of those. But, I prefer Microcenter. Whenever I travel to a town with one I always go in and wander around for a while. Fry's is decent, but they have a lot more stuff I don't care so much about. Microcenter seems more focused on PC tech.

    So new GPUs heh? Pretty exciting, tensor cores coming to consumer....

    Hope the supplies on 2080 TI isnt too bad. The microcenter near me only let me preorder initially one card per SKU...... guess these guys learned the drill from the pascal launch LOL.

    @Johnksss should I expect you to have these on sub zero around early October? Pretty excited to see how Turing react to temperature.

    Yeah a lot of people are doing that. I kinda just want to buy something and call it a day. I been going on without a proper GPU for a few month. Tired of the wait. Already run my math and it shows buying a 2080 TI at release is considerably better value for me than buying a discounted 1080 TI and wait for better pricing in 4 months. Probably canceling one card but keeping the other. We will see.

    Not so sure about that since you can get a 1080 TI SC for 647.99 and open box for under 600.00. :)

    I just got it up and running. Have to figure out a few things. Like why the default BCLK is 103 MHz instead of 100. And, what settings to use for the DIMM.2 to not have a RAID device in Device Manager. All I did here was set 47x for all cores and XMP and AHCI.

    Woa, 5Ghz on 16 cores! How much power does it suck on say wPrime or CB15? RAM latency is quite high in comparison to your previous, (which I remember was about the same as mine), but that's to be expected with the mesh interface between all those cores, rather than using the ring bus of CPUs like 6700K / 8700K - I think that's one reason why those many many core CPUs are not the best for gaming currently.

    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod...4487403&cm_re=rtx_2080-_-14-487-403-_-Product

    $904 no tax or shipping for the 2080 with a $200 SSD. You can sell the SSD, and probably only pay around $750 out the door for the 2080. Not a bad price considering it will beat the 1080 Ti most likely in regular gaming and knock its socks off in anything ray tracing. Buying a 1080 Ti this late in the game doesn't seem to make much sense. Although you do give up 3gb of VRAM. Which unless you're gaming at 4K won't matter too much. 1440p gamers will be upgrading long before they max out the 8gb.

    You are not thinking like normal folks on a budget. Who do not care about bleeding edge.
    That would be the difference here.
    I do agree with you, but then i like to "waste" money on new tech from time to time.
