Yes graphics cards are a silly price at the moment, plenty of these are going for far more than this though, lots of places don't have stock and at least this one has a massive cooler making it quiet and cool. They also have a slightly overclocked version for another £30.

FreeSync is also worse than G-Sync


No, it isn't. That was true at launch due to the shoddy implementation of it in early monitors (since its implementation is down to the monitor manufacturers themselves), but it isn't true in mid-2017. There's zero difference between the two with better, more recent FreeSync displays that support wider ranges and LFC. In fact, FreeSync displays generally have a large advantage in terms of connectivity, whereas G-Sync displays are very limited on that front, due to the nature of Nvidia's module.

You've already stated that you spent a lot of money on a G-Sync monitor, so I know you're not going to accept this, but fortunately it's easy enough for anybody else to Google some more recent comparisons of the two, rather than taking the word of someone with a heavy investment in one of them at face value.

Waiting for Vega before I make any decision

​the best card in the Vega architecture will be between 1070 and 1080 in performance. so if your looking for the best card on the market it will still be this
managed to nab a gigabyte 1080 on primeday for £390

Yep. RX Vega is expected to be at 1080 levels of performance.
Just installed my evga 1080ti ftw3 that was on prime day last week for £666. Absolute beast of a card and destroys my 1070.
If its ebuyer itl be broken anyway.
@UberPark & https://www.hotukdeals.com/profile/K1LLER_HORNET It's rumoured that VEGA benchmarks show it competing with a 1080 , I know ti will still be king.

I keep going back and forth between getting a 1080/Vega or going for a 1080ti

Been using a 23inch hp 1080p TN monitor for the past few years with a GTX 780 and I'm gonna treat myself this year to a new monitor and card , wanting to upgrade to a 27" 1440p monitor , waiting for Vega incase I go down the freesync route rather than G-SYNC , also don't know whether the price difference between a 1080 and the ti is worth it .

If Vega can compete with 1080 and its cheaper than I'll go that route since freesync is also much cheaper

It isn't bad, Gsync is just better, sure the premium sucks but I have the Dell 27" 1440p 144hz gsync monitor and its incredible, and its not like I'll upgrade monitor for years, so all things considered.. not a big deal.

The AMD subreddit disagrees with you, and they are the biggest AMD fanboys in the world.

But ok. And my G-sync monitor cost me hardly anything, so that has nothing to do with it, lol.

Lets also take note that AMD has no GPU's right now that can push 144 fps / 1440p or 1080p 144 fps.

The data is endless to show Gsync being a better technology than Freesync, right now.

The monitor you are talking about , is it the S2716DG? That was the monitor I've been eyeing up as I've heard nothing but good things about it , even for a TN , never see an IPS so wouldn't say I'm not that bothered about it being TN , plus I only game on my pc , don't do any work or anythjng so not really going to justify the price of IPS G-Sync 144hz+ or TN variants , although the Acer IPS one tends to only be about £100 more but then I'd be worrying about bleed and glow , can I have your thoughts on the monitor?

@Aretak I do agree that G-Sync is better but I've never actually seen the two it's just from what I've read online , apparently AMD are releasing freesync 2 before the end of this year that will fix some bugs but that'll probably just bring it on par with Gsync

Yeah, the S2716DG. I used a BenQ XL2411Z for years, and the difference is massive in terms of colour and quality.

I wouldn't ever use IPS for gaming either, rather have the 1ms response time and people who complain about viewing angles are retarded (if they're primarily gaming).

I think the monitor is great and it doesn't look like a "gamer" monitor which is a huge positive, because the predator etc look awful.

I know what you mean about the viewing angles , completely irrelevant as I sit directly facing my monitor and do no production work, just browsing the internet & gaming , any content I consume I usually watch on my 1440p tablet anyway

I like how it doesn't look too flashy compared to the others, I think the Acer stands won't actually fit on the raised monitor stand I have on my desk so they may be out the question, the Dell is what I'm seriously considering and have been for a while , just waiting for to see if Vega drops the price of the 1080 or maybe even 1080ti, would prefer to stick with green team as I've always had Nvidia GPU and never had any problems

Thanks for your input

Are they? There are endless links to show that Gsync is a better technology than FreeSync is right now - anyone who can look at data or search for it comes to that conclusion.

I am a big fan of AMD because of their Ryzen CPU's, but that doesn't make FreeSync any better so I don't see your point.

Your responses to me only seem to show that you may be a massive fanboy of AMD? I'm not sure really.

Pretty much every AMD user with a brain would admit that Gsync is a superior technology, atm, go ask over at AMD subreddit if ya want, loads of them have used both, and I know you didn't watch that entire youtube video, because you're braindead.

Doesn't make any sense. If you go for one manufacturer you can swap to the other next time with no issues. Mining is a fad anyway, ether mining is dying down already and prices/stock will fall back to normal soon enough.

I was led to believe it was 6 more years that Nvidia were going to rule the GPU market for, so not sure where you're getting you're inaccurate information from. I always get mine from the Associates of Statistical Surveillance, they've been a reliable source of inaccuracy even before WCCFTech was born, most people have been using The University of Rhodesia's Data but I find that a very unreliable source of speculation. This has been one of my most mnemonically correct posts I've ever done.

True. Didn't have to be that way but once again nVidia putting themselves ahead of the customers. One of the many reasons I will stick to AMD until such a time as they just cannot compete any more, which will hopefully never happen.

ritchiedrama

Vega will likely not be as good as the 1080Ti though



Yes if you want to speculate, the likely scenario is that the top AMD consumer card will not beat the top nVidia consumer card. How is this any different to any other generation? nVidia has always been the place to go if you have money burning a whole in your pocket. For most people it would be more sensible to look at a mid/high range card where the best bang for buck is and buy that, saving the rest for another mid/high range card purchase in 2 or 3 years which will run circles around the top end card of today.

Since this is a 1080Ti thread, if you absolutely must have one then I still think now is a really bad time to be buying, but if you're willing to spend £650 on a GPU I guess that doesn't really matter

Thats usually a terrible time to buy, you could have picked up a 1080ti for less than this a few weeks after they released. On release they were a silly price. This is a decent deal in the current silly marketplace.
