    Fine, yes but there's no way it will be as quiet as my water-cooled setup and it'll also ruin my aesthetic :p

    Its amazing but I can't run everything on max as it takes up more ram then my 2080TI has......

    this is at 3440x1440

    It goes red 11.54 GB / 10.79 GB - Crazy eh ?

    Do you really need AA at that res? Have you noticed a big difference between on and off?

    I notice it just enough for it to bother the eye, you know the flickering lines on something thin, the hair looks dithered and weird, fxaa was okay (or whatever the lowest is) but it looks all blurred and smoothed out.

    Just a note if your looking forward to the game that much and you're planning on getting a new GPU for it, ME is a PhysX game so you need a 2080ti to run it maxed out, no AMD card (even the VII) will be able to do it due to proprietary shenanigans :(

    I lied (sort of), I didn't sell my Vega for just two reasons but I did sell it and now I'm back using a 480 so I'll get a new gpu when I can & the two I'll choose between will be the RTX 2080 & the Vega VII, I think insisting that you use all settings as high as they go is silly if you can't get a comfortable framerate to go with them, At the moment I'm running Resident Evil 2 at 3440x1440 with a 480 & it looks good and feels great, I'm getting good visuals and it's running smoothly, I don't have a clue what the actual framerates are as I don't want to look incase it spoils the experience. :D I imagine Freesync's helping things along as well but it is what it is and when Metro does release I expect we'll get more of the same, You can get a good looking smooth gaming experience with most modern gpu's as long as you don't demand Ultra everything & let's be honest usually you don't need everything ultra, You can turn a lot of settings down without much of an effect on the visuals.

    I'm pretty close to selling my Vega 64 with an EK rgb water block with all the trimmings (240 radiator, ek pump/res e.t.c)
    Do you think anyone would be interested in buying it ?

    It would sell quite nicely on the member's market, but alas you don't have access to it yet :(

    On a slightly different note, I hope the v7 cooler is up to the job. The vega 64 reference I had the cooler was terrible no matter how much I undervolted. I knew it was going underwater but the block took ages to turn up.

    I will be very interested to see the reviews including the cooling. Be fascinated to see how it stacks up. Wish it had come out months ago may have switched to AMD
