    Fast GPU's


    Why You (Probably) Dont Need a Crazy-Powerful GPU Like the GTX 1080 Ti

    For us PC gamers, there’s a desire for the latest and greatest hardware, and there’s a definite cachet to having the coolest, fastest rig on the block. But in today’s PC gaming market, there’s really no reason to shell out for the most screamingly fast (and expensive) graphics card you can fit into your case.

    I can already hear a million mechanical keyboards blasting out a reply in the comments, but let me explain myself. Don’t get me wrong: if a $700 graphics card is what you really, truly want, and you have the disposable income to afford it, go for it. But after you read the following points, you might just decide that a cheaper card and the savings therein are worth considering.


    Pretend, for a moment, that you’re a game developer. You want as many people as possible to play your game, because that means that as many people as possible will buy your game.

    I went dual 1080 Ti because I was able to get them (relatively) cheaply via EVGA's Step-Up program, plus it gives me the comfort of knowing that I should be able to run AAA titles at Very High to Ultra settings for the next 3 or 4 years, at least. Being able to crank up a beautiful game like GTA V or Assassin's Creed Origins to their highest settings and enjoying the absolutely breathtaking views in the games is absolutely worth what I paid for the cards.

    I have a 1060 and it plays WW2 good as well, so the Geek may have a point.

    Hi,
    Just wait a year and even the 1080ti's will be pretty dirt cheap :)

    have a 750ti in mine currently upgraded from a OEM GT 635. runs all the games i want to play on high or ultra at 1080p. did not see the need to shell out for a 960 and have to spend even more money on a new power supply as the XPS 8700 only comes with a 460w power supply.
