Hey Marine,  you have the card I currently use.  I am awaiting the release of the series 5 RTX cards, then the prices will come down for the 4090 RTX OC cards.  I don't know much about the card you are looking at in the link however.  GPU's and the plethora of them on the market are hard to evaluate.  I have reviewed products in the past from this site  https://www.tomshardware.com/

Hey that depends of your pc specs, also what games are you in to.¬† 3070 is good for almost anything¬† but depends on your taste in games, in my¬† case I have a beautiful bottle neck¬† piece of crap¬† I3 10th gen 16gb of ram with a 3060 12gb¬† and I¬īm able to run practically anything, and I am sure¬† you have a better cpu than mine that means that if you do not want to wait for the gpu prices to go down. 3070 still good card.¬†¬†

I got the 4070 super. Will the 16pin work or do I need 24? 

If your PSU does not have the PCIE5 which I call it stupid a** cable, you need to use the adapter (if it's given in your GPU box). If your PSU have that, do ensure to fully insert it properly.

NVIDIA 40 Series & onwards (NGREEDIA will implement this connectors for future cards) uses a new connector than the older Series which uses the standard 6+2/8-Pin EPS/PCI-E Connectors. 

 

If you are using an older PSU, you won't have any PCIE5.0/12VHPWR cable(pic 2). Only newer PSU already have them implemented. But you can purchase the Adapter(pic 1) in which it uses 3x 8-Pin EPS/PCI-E to 12-Pin (top 4Pin I don't count as it's mostly signal pins) 12VHPWR

 

If let's say your PSU is a low wattage & only have 2x 8-Pin PCI-E Cable, I will say, good luck in trying to power the new gen gpu. Or if you lost 1 of the cable, good luck as well.

Have you already made a purchase?

Which video card with its full name and model have you bought? Which power supply with its full name and model number do you have? It will make it easy to assist you.

Looks like a winner to me!  I also opted for the "Super" line, back in 2018/2019 I got the ASUS ROG STRIX Nvidia RTX 2070 Super rather than the 2080 (non-super), and was a very good buy.  Still going strong.

I've not kept up with the latest cards or developments, all know is that they are power hungry.

What I do know is that if/when I need to upgrade my 2070 Super, it will likely involve buying a new more powerful Power Supply and redoing all the painfully difficult (but well routed) cable runs throughout my case, and won't be a simple card-swap.  My 750 Watts PSU just won't cover it with these new cards, and ya never wanna reuse cable runs if you get a new PSU, even if you have modular cables and the PSU is the exact same brand (or even model!), and imho it's one of the most annoying parts of building a case.  Shit is too short to run the way you want, or too long and you have to make dumbass looking doglegs - and if you want it done right, you spend all the time and you definitely make sure you can replace just one fan (for example) down the road without having to yoink its cable out of a rats nest and undo all that fancy cable routing work.

Not all SUPER line is great especially the latest SKU of the 4070 Ti SUPER which is utterly rubbish from my point of view. Would just skip that card & take 4080 or 4080 SUPER.

Since lack of competition from AMD & INTEL, NVIDIA mostly do what it want since they have the market dominance. INTEL GPU not much entering in the high performance sector (yet). But there's still people hoping for INTEL to enter so there will be additional player for NGREEDIA to stop with their BS. (That is why EVGA exit GPU  market thanks to NVIDIA) 

Will see if they gonna release a 4090 SUPER before 50 Series or in conjunction with it. It's highly possible for them to do so since they have the money & plentiful of consumer scapegoats *cough* NVIDIA Fanbois *cough* (no offence if anyone got triggered by it).

@Cruizer what's so good about NVIDIA VGA's really? I've been using GT 210 for a long time really shows me it's age (sometimes graphic bugs hits me in PR causing me to delete shader cache to fix it)

 

I'm looking for good and cheapest AMD VGA's probably in future PC builds, any ideas or should i stick to NVIDIA stuff all over again? I'm trying to avoid Intel as they mostly (still) expensive here than AMD's.

 

So far, i found RX 480 and 570/580 ones being recommended, is it any good?

 

***I'm just playing PR as in for now (with so many games at library, not sure what to pick one to play, as my currently can't handle all of them)

@=VG= Inch I forget what does NVIDIA GPU have which the other competitors don't which lead to a lot buying them. One of my customer did told me last time. Can't really recall it though but some old solid YT reveiwer videos might have the answer to it or definitely someone here do know more about it.

 

Anyways, not sure bout the price tag in Indonesia for used and new GPUs but I surely know you guys have high tax for electronics same goes for Malaysia. So it will depend on your budget. RX 480 & 580 is still fine but do get the 8GB variant as more head room. Also do check the fin stack of the gpu before buying it (check to see any rust or corrosion. As it will degrade the cooling of the gpu if it's presence). GTX 10 Series is also fine as well & it is also a similar case for the RX 400/500 Series GPUs. Can also opt for used GTX 16 Series/RX 5000 Series

 

Not sure your CPU though as there might be potential bottleneck since you might be using an old gen CPU base on your GPU information. Bottleneck in terms of CPU already reach 100% usage but gpu is like 20~40% usage which is a GPU bottlenecking which result in drop of FPS as the GPU could not fully utilize the performance. Anyways, if it's still works, don't buy it if you have a super tight budget.

Welp, i'm not buying it that soon anyways. It's the 4GB one, that i mostly found cheaper. I'll keep that in mind for the 8GB.

 

As for the rest of the items is like in my wishlist atm, like Asrock B450M-HDV and a Ryzen 3330X 3.8 GHz, they're probably are my ideal setup.

 

Gotta get some bucks for it or sell/trade-in my old PC for smth else.
