    Without question, the ring of pride. Not sure why they would use the word pride in describing what the ring does, as it has nothing to do with pride. All the others fall into earthly gratifications and rewards of ego, while the ring is enlightenment.

    So... Grun of Wrath means you gain ring of pride as well, you do get smarter over the ages, and can live enough to become the smartest person in the world. Spectacles are also covered by the gu because of this

    The wallet is covered by that, since you have nuff time to become the richest person on the earth, you can learn and outlive.

    There's the locket of lust, and the watch of sloth though, those two have powers that aren't covered by the gun's infinite life.

    Say, the watch of sloth does something, but since the gun makes you immortal, and incredibly smart, you can say that the gun covers that one's usability.

    Then only the locket of lust remains. Put it against the gun, the gun helps nothing to make you more desirable sexually, so it really depends on which of those two you'd want more.

    There are literally Zero games with RTX available at launch, it's that cool and exclusive...:p

    The RTX GPU's are shipping with RTX OFF, with no software available to turn RTX ON. :cool:

    The good news is Nvidia's "Fake 4k" mode, DLSS, will be in a few games at launch, here's the list of games with DLSS announced as supported, as Nvidia recently published:

    It's not the games which sold me the GPU, it's the glorious image of the Gamer's Nexus dude.

    But on the serious note, I don't plan on getting a new GPU right now. I'm gonna wait until CP2077 to come out to most likely make a new PC build.
