    Huh. So it turns out that RTX 3000 series cards do actually exist...

    My 3090 arrived the day after I ordered too, but I didn;t want to get your hopes up in case they cancelled again.

    Happy days - enjoy

    Man, that's something that made me seriously consider changing team on the GPU front.

    The 3000 series cards direct from Nvidia look the ****ing business.

    Also aren't a goddamn foot long. And no, that isn't hyperbole.

    They also have a little RGB in there. The "X" on my 3080 can change colours using almost any RGB software, but the "GEFORCE RTX" on top is white only.
    I just wish the 12-pin power convertor was a bit longer, so it could be hidden behind the motherboard! Guess I'm going to have to buy a 12-pin modular cable for my PSU soon...

    Only the 3080 and up have illuminated logos AFAIK, RGB or no RGB. My 3070Ti certainly doesn't have an illuminated logo.

    No bad thing though tbh, I've already got enough RGB in there.

    Yeah, I could live without illuminated logos. The Red Devil I've got here has a pulsing red glow that I could control with yet another piece of software. I'm itching to get a waterblock on it and lose that crap.

    Best looking cards I've ever seen - far more appealing than the AIB 30 series carbuncles.

    The annoying thing is not being able to control the lighting in Nvidia's own software. EVGA Precision, Asus AI Suite and Corsair iCue can all control it, but not Nvidia Control Panel? WTF?!

    Got offered a 2nd job - slight pay cut, but sign-on bonus and company yearly bonus negates it :)

    A 144Hz monitor, and having a PC that can actually deliver 144 FPS.

    It really is like night and day compared to a 60Hz screen.

    Yeah it is. Every time I come over my mother's to 70hz I have to retrain my brain and muscle memory etc. Spoiled with 144 at home !

    Bit over ten months of HRT. There might have been "some" changes

    October 2018 vs May 2021, nine months on lady 'mones at that point. From dead eyed, severely depressed nobody to smirking redhead[​IMG]

    Who's feeling like queen of everything? This lady

    My wife's the same. She is very northern European in complexion (Dutch, but has been asked sooooo many times if she's [insert Scandinavian country here]) so her eyebrows are there but you can't see them so every now and again she paints them with dye and she's good to go for a bit. Me on the other hand.... unibrow mixed with mad professor.... :hehe::hehe:
