Would you buy a £700 AMD GPU minus RTX that was as fast as a 2080 Ti

    Anyone else (except maybe DP) said this, I'd suspect it was satire - but I do wonder.... ;)

    Nope, £600, And only if the after market cards came in at £600 though, I'd purchase a Strix version in a heartbeat.

    We need top end cards to come down to sane levels again.

    I'd never purchase an Asus AMD card, always seems like there's *something* wrong with them this last few gens...

    Sapphire FTW :cool:

    True that, With the V64 though it was an easy 10 minute fix, Take old thermal pad off, Put thicker thermal pad on, Done.

    I actually wanted to get a Sapphire Nitro + Limited Edition but the UK got like 2 so it was impossible to find :p

    Nope I can easily afford to buy anything I wish but have decided that my limit on a new GPU is £500 and not a penny more.

    If it were released now? Absolutely. I'd sell my monitor and have enough for an equivalent spec Freesync model.

    Would never buy a £700 GPU. £400 is my absolute limit

    Nope, £350-£400 is my max, the pricing is getting ridiculous now.

    Nope wouldn't ever considering paying that much for any Gpu, £350 is my limit.

    Even if I could afford one I wouldn't, I can't justify it nor do I think any card is worth that

    Highly unlikely, the most I've ever spent on a GPU is £270. My average annual spend on GPUs, excluding anything recouped from resale is probably under £150. If it gave 2080TI-SLI performance then maybe.

    £700 is Still way to overpriced for a GPU. I'd just hang on to my vega64.

    No, but that's because I refuse to spend that much on a GPU no matter who it's from. £3-400 is my max

    No, still too much as far as I'm concerned.

    I paid £480 for my 980Ti, which is the most I've ever spent on a graphics card, and that was pushing it a bit. I've certainly got my monies worth out of it though.

    AMD matching Nvidia sounds like some sort of American dream the way people talk about it.
