Good luck, I just sold my 3 used 980ti's not too long ago. With mining becoming less profitable, you should be able to snag a decent GPU from someone.

Ive been meaning to ask you about that.

I guess I got my short answer, but lets chat on discord when you get on!

Yeah honestly if you cant wait I would look for any brand new 1060 6gb model thats under $300 or rx 580 8gb model under $300. and if you really need to save money on it a 1050 ti $150 or under will be pretty good (all of these will make your 780 ti feel like dog shit :smile: ) the 1060 and 580 will play anything maxed at 1080p and the 1050 ti will play most on high at 1080p maybe low AA. Honestly all these options will be more limited by your cpu than anything assuming your cpu is as old or older than a 780 ti :slight_smile:

I just need to get an ssd and 16gb of ram.... but I gotta buy this new drake ship first!
Jesus I love ships too but get the SSD first for the sake of the lord. Your mechanical HDD is from the 1980s - get modern!!!!

Oooh cool i'll go look at Reddit, I learned what one was recently because my wife looks at youtube videos of someone called "Captain Sparkles" looking at Reddit.
Correction, the ship is released tomorrow, the image on reddit was a reconstruction of the commercial which had the ship hidden in static. Still an image of the ship though.

The 1050ti is a downgrade from my 780ti :\ by a lot. I'm ending up going with a 1070ti, as I have convinced my wife that when I upgrade to the 11 series when it comes out, the 1070ti will become her video card when we build her computer. This was all done for her...>.>
1050 ti is not as good in raw power but in modern games with all the new features it out does it :smile: I was surprised about that too haha

My assumption is it must be those the drivers and how much optimizing they are willing to do to a game for older kit...?

Yeah between drivers, extra ram and just plain whole new architecture they pull off some impressive stuff for budget cards.

EDIT: Oh and also because they run so much cooler and boost so much higher combined that means maintaining full throttle the whole time squeezing out some extra performance.

I have to be honest the looney prices for GPU has stopped me bothering to upgrade my pc hence I do not play star citizen. I do hope they get a bit more reasonable.
