From Digital Foundry: "Looking to build a PC or upgrade your PC to match a shiny new RTX 3070 or RTX 3080 - or RX 6700 XT, 6800 or 6800 XT 'Big Navi' graphics card? Here's a complete Digital Foundry approved PC build.

The idea is to design a system that will give you a reasonable degree of future-proofing and the ability to handle both gaming and content creation tasks, all for a reasonable price."

Has euro gamer taken in price yet? Look at prices of 3070 3080 6800 absolutely ridiculous

dumahim25d ago

Price is irrelevant when many of the parts aren't even available. GPU, case, Intel MB, PSU (in US).

Well in UK a 3070 3080 are £1000+ upto around £1500 and rx 6800 forget about it. Shocking pricing. Its just euro gamer pull stuff putting it across just get this all together easily and everything's fine

Even the rx 5700 xfx I've got it ebays for £700 absolutely ridiculous

It is easier buying a PS5 at regular price than it is a 3070/3080 graphics card. I know. I tried.

TheRealTedCruz25d ago

I was able to get both (PS5/3070), but it was out of pure luck and having friends at management positions in retail.

RazzerRedux25d ago've got friends, do ya? Old buddy.....old pal...


JustTheFax25d ago

I have been lucky enough to get 3 3080's so far (I sold 2 to friends), but only 1 ps5. Opposite experience for me. haha

Bhuahahaha25d ago

im still fine with 1660ti 😁. with future uncertain due to the pandemic thats going on. its safer to save money than future proofing a pc

potedude25d ago

I got a build with a 6700XT in it - very happy with that. Hard work getting hands on anything from team green at the moment...

foker25d ago

well if I had this sort of money lying around,.. Id rather get LGCX65 or 75
