Quote from: grumbler on May 01, 2022, 07:19:42 PMMy 8-year-old MB just isn't cutting it any more, as it has persistently given false CPU overtemp alarms and now only intermittently recognizes my two 4TB drives. I'm going to keep my video card and drives for now.What I am looking for is the "sweet spot" of decent futureproofing without paying for the bleeding edge. Eight years ago Valmy steered me towards my current rig, and that was just what I wanted (it never held me back until it started to wear out).Right now, that looks like a MSI MAG B560M motherboard ($160) and Intel® Core™ i5-10600KF ($185), but I'm open to suggestions in those sorts of price ranges. Also looking at 2x16 Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 3200 (PC4-25600) C16 1.35V Desktop Memory at $119, but know a lot less about all the ins and outs of memory, so suggestions welcome here, as well.Anybody want to do a brother a solid, and help out here?
QuoteYou could fairly think of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti as a big, stump-necked brute of a graphics card. What better characterisation for the latest tippity-top-of-the-line GPU from Nvidia, who've already produced the best graphics card for 4K in the RTX 3080? But rather than be overwhelmed by its power, I personally feel more like the RTX 3090 Ti is trying to trick, tempt and seduce me, Old Testament-style. "Recommend meeeee" it whispers, coasting through another maximum settings benchmark. "Tell evvvvvvveryone these frame rates are totally worth £1879."But I can't. Sorry. While I am a sucker for go-faster gear, the RTX 3090 Ti is just too far of a stretch, with its sometimes imperceptible performance differences to the £1399 RTX 3090 and a tendency towards impractically gigantic partner card models.
