    Is there even any point in maxing out graphics settings? I played Cyberpunk 2077 on medium settings and had no problem. The game looked good enough and ran well enough.

    are there such people?
    I thought most people don't really care what GPU they have as long as it runs the games they want to play and in the other end there are people like me who want to have all the newest and best graphics or highest FPS etc.

      More headroom will make your card last longer.
      In Europe right now room temperature is 100F
      If you have a 2070 and you want to play Elden Ring, your card will hit 180F in no time.
      If you have a 3080 and you play Elden Ring it won't even budge.

          400€ for a portable unit plus the cost of electricity which is going to be crazy because you're fighting an oven with a refrigerator.

            Well, just move to some place that's not a shithole. We have conditioners in pretty much every apartment and I have mine on all day every day. Paying like $60 a month for electricity in total.
            Have it on right now and open windows just for fresh air - it's 30C outside.

      It depends on what game you're playing, and what you have the settings set to.

      Best spot to be in given the devastated state of gaming right now. I deliberately left a few games behind ages ago like Dragon's Dogma and Nier because I knew this was going to happen.

    Jap shit like my pic will teach you that you don't buy the latest and greatest card to run modern AAA shit at high settings

    You buy the latest and greatest card to play shittily programmed Jap shit at high settings because on a normal fucking card that can probably get you 60 FPS on fucking Crysis,in shit like oh I don't know,an Illusion game you'll struggle to get fucking 20 because Japs think PC is where they can cut a fuckload of corners

    Bought a 3080 to play spider man, suicide squad, gotham knights, bayo 3.
    I can't notice the difference from the 1080 to the point I think the computer still thinks I have a 1080. Seriously, xenoblade 3 runs at 20fps.

    But in the other hand cyberpunk runs amazing with ray tracing.

    From what I can see so many modern AAA titles are just interactive movies so it's a waste of time playing them at all.
    I'm hanging out for the Valve Index II to arrive though, VR titles have a better reason to demand power from a card.

    If you're buying a 30 series card and it's not a 3060 Ti or a 3080 12GB, you're doing it wrong.

    The only reason I can think of where it would be justified these days would be if you want to be an e-sport memer in fps games other than CS:GO and want to keep a stable 240fps with your 240hz monitor. These people actually do make use of their 3080. Most games who came out lately were absolute garbage and half of them are lazy console to PC ports where even people with 3080s have problems (stranger of paradise for example).

    They don't do it intentionally. They instinctually know most games are shit, and ended having more fun with less demanding ones, but they don't put two and two together and save their money. The Upgrade Cycle is a bad habit they haven't kicked.
