:lol: It’s the most expensive thing on canteen, so all the ballers use it like it’s a wedge of £50s.

I’ve had my 3080 for a week or so now, and I can safely say I’m delighted with it. Cyberpunk is the perfect game to show it off, and even with a 7800X cpu it’s happily doing 4K ultra ray tracing with DLSS at 60fps. The sheer grunt of the thing is amazing, and I’m glad I’ve pushed for this rather than getting the XSX because 60fps is worth it.

I couldn't get a hold of a 3080 but I did get a 3070. So far it's pretty sweet for my 2k res.
My kid wants a 3060ti so we've both agreed he can get my 3070 at cut price and I'll put up the bit extra for a full 3080 when and if they ever become available. Not looking great as the crypto brigade is snapping them up, they're great for Ethereum apparently.

I still want one, even though I technically have no use for it :lol: what games have you got? How does it compare with your pc and the 3070?

How is the 3080 holding up?

I'm still trying to get hold of one. I was >..< this close yesterday, but accidentally mis-clicked and put a 3060 into my cart on scan, and they're currently doing one 3000 series per customer, so I couldn't add the 3080 until I'd removed the 3060, and by that time they'd sold out again!

I'm after the FE edition, still selling for £650 on scan when available there!

Absolutely amazing, especially with DLSS on. Blitzes everything I throw at it, zero issues at all. Not sure you’ll ever get hold of an FE, personally I’d get whatever one you can and just enjoy it.

Scary that I could sell mine for double what I paid for it, absolutely insane!

You could probably get three times the price looking at some of the prices going online!!

I'm still holding out for an FE card though, I'm confident I'll get one next time they drop. It was only my own eagerness that blocked me this time.

I cleaned up my PC case the other day in anticipation, had to move some hard disks around so that the length of the new card will fit.

I think the luck fairy visited me yesterday. Firstly a young lady I like invited me to join her and her friend on a bike ride around the forest, then this morning I managed to get onto the Scan website within a second of the part alert, and placed an order for a 3080 FE for £660 including delivery!!

Should be with me by 21st June 8)

Never any good without the bad though... had a NHS alert saying I've been close to somebody with Covid and have to self isolate for 8 days!

I'm never going to Hooters again! :oops: :x

So you have to spend 5 days at home with your new gfx card? Hmmm, coincidence? :lol:

How you finding the 3080 bud?

I caved and bought an XSX via all access, as I got lucky and found some in stock at Game at the right time. Beautiful thing, loading speeds are bonkers quick, and of course stuff looks pretty as hell on it. Not that there’s anything to really play on it right now, ofc…
