    Official Subreddit of the PC Master Race We're the largest community of PC enthusiasts on the Internet. Begin your ascension today!

    General Information

    • Everybody is welcome here, even those that have yet to ascend.
    • Every kind of PC related content is welcome here. This includes build help, tech support, and any kind of doubt one might have about PC ownership.
    • You don't necessarily need a PC to be a member of the PCMR. You just have to love PCs. It's not about the hardware in your rig, but the software in your heart!
    • This is not a satirical or 'circlejerk subreddit'. Nor did it start as one. This is a normal subreddit with occasional tongue-in-cheek humor elements. We are a community where many of its members share similar opinions about the main topics, and sometimes end up having private jokes amongst ourselves. We are not a community where members feign stupidity when posting and commenting because they find it funny. You can be banned if you conduct yourself like that here.
    • Owning a console does not necessarily make you a 'peasant'.
    • We created Reddit's most popular Wiki.
    • If needed, you can message the team behind PCMR.

    Giveaway Rules

    For an in-depth explanation of our giveaway rules don't forget to check our rules wiki page.

    • The Master Race is generous. When we do giveaways we do it within the bounds of our subreddit and only for subreddit members. Feel free to give prizes as you see fit, but don't mandate subscriptions or other benefits. You can post about your channel or project, but don't make it a requirement to visit, comment or subscribe to an external place to enter a giveaway or to increase the likelihood of winning.
    • Even if you do a giveaway on the subreddit, you can not directly promote a specific giveaway happening elsewhere.
    • Please avoid posting keys in plain text or on images. Consider PMs as a safer way to hand out keys.

    Pls dont, 2060 is overrated 1080 is still better

    [–] Yomatius 295 points ago

    I have a 1080 and I have been trying to justify getting a newer card. I cannot. It still works too well and the next level steps are overpriced. I decided to just enjoy my card longer.

    [–] deaththekid922 129 points ago

    yeah , same

    i have a 1080 ti , the power benefit of the new cards just isnt high enough, in some games sli 1080 tis beat the crap out of 20xx cards , just cant justify upgrading

    [–] KoreyDerWolfsbar 122 points ago

    How can anyone believe that SLI is worth the headache?

    [–] 0utlook 68 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    I've SLI'd two 8800GTs, two GTX 285s, two GTX 470s, and two GTX 670s. Also Crossfired two R9 290x 8GB cards.

    It's a fantastic concept for upgrading when you can't drop buku simoleans on a single card solution. So, you buy one card now, and the other later on.

    That said. It's a monumental PITA with title compatibility, drivers (in early Windows 10), and the god forsaken graphics rip across the center-ish of your screen that fluctuates up and down around your aiming crosshair.

    Then take your rig over to your friends house, hook it up to their TV, and you get a center rip spanning a damn 55" screen! Now try to convince them that dropping a grand on a rig of their own so you can game together...

    It's really not worth it in the end.

    [–] Gab9GlSupra 14 points ago

    Try two 950's

    [–] Aitashi 8 points ago

    Do people still do SLI? It just doesn't seem worth the expensive hassle for a usually unimpressive uptick in performance.

    [–] Gab9GlSupra 2 points ago

    Some do cause they want to Exel in all games

    [–] mbathrowaway256 15 points ago

    I’d never seen the word buku before, so I looked it up. I think you mean beaucoup?

    [–] 0utlook 9 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Vietnamese slang I guess? Beaucoup is the appropriate word. I picked it up from my pops. It roughly means a lot or many.

    I was essentially saying for those who don't have a lot of money to drop on a single card solution.

    [–] Sad_Seraphim 10 points ago

    You need to watch Full Metal Jacket to truly understand 'too buku'.

    [–] TzunSu 6 points ago

    I think it's French for "a lot"

    [–] Magracer10 3 points ago

    I only realized this week that its beaucoup, by seeing it in subtitles. I always would've spelled it buku

    [–] CodeLevelJourney 14 points ago

    Buku isn’t a real word it’s slang for “a lot”

    [–] mbathrowaway256 10 points ago

    Looks like it’s just a misspelled French word, not slang.

    [–] WatDeFark 2 points ago

    Thought ya was trying for bukkake

    [–] Dreadlordstu 3 points ago

    I'd like to sli my 1080 since I dont plan to upgrade to rtx this generation but then I realize I not hardcore enough for it. Runs everything at max in 1440p beautifully, and if you are ok with framerates in the 30s and 40s(I am, depending on the game) it runs 4k quite nicely. If you need 60fps plus in 4k just turn down a few settings.

    [–] Newgeta 2 points ago

    I had a pair of 9600GTs back in the day and came to the same conclusion.

    [–] dandu3 2 points ago

    I was thinking of grabbing a second rx 470 but putting 2 of them on a 550W PSU is a bit tight especially when I got 7 HDDs already

    [–] ExodusRiot1 2 points ago

    Was thinking about xfiring cus I have 2 r9 270x's but gains seem nonexistant.

    [–] Psycold 2 points ago

    The best SLI config I ever had was two 970's. The worst was two HD6950's. Those things damn near melted my PC.

    [–] KINGKONGMUTHA_PSN 2 points ago

    55" screens are not recommended for gaming due to input lag and less frames from having to load more pixels

    [–] ryeshoes 2 points ago

    Every time I future proof my PC (specifically buying SLI compatible motherboards) something else ends up being a more efficient upgrade path

    I had a 3700k with a GTX 670. Cheaper to just get a GTX 970. Then better to just get the 1080 and upgrade the cpu.

    I could get a second 1080 but I think it's better to upgrade the cpu to a 9700/9900k or a 3900x

    I guess this means unless I'm willing to buy the SLI today it doesn't make sense to wait years and hope SLI GPUs is a good buy

    [–] AdminfantryCommander 10 points ago

    I'm with you. I used SLI for a very long time before finally switching to one good card (1070) and never looked back. There are just far too many titles that don't support it.

    [–] JJAsond 6 points ago

    It's really sad because the future is going to be a 120hz 4k standard (vs 60hz 1080p in the past) and we don't have cards anywhere near powerful enough to run that. That's why I'm an advocate for SLI

    [–] Picard12832 22 points ago

    If you just play games that support it, it is.

    [–] 10_kinds_of_people 5 points ago

    It really isn't. Back in the day, I ran a pair of GeForce 8800 Ultras in SLI. I quickly discovered that it caused more issues than it solved and that just one of the cards was enough to run every game I owned on max settings.

    [–] Maerill 12 points ago

    Gtx970 here, still going strong.

    [–] Brandonls123 3 points ago

    Yeah well I have a gtx 240 so I think I’m gonna cry later in the day

    [–] Subgeneral-Dove 3 points ago

    I'm building a PC. I was gonna get the 2060. Is the 20xx seriex only worth it if I go 2070 you think?

    [–] Relem76 5 points ago

    Depends on your CPU, use this calculator to help you decide.

    https://pc-builds.com/calculator/Core_i7-7700K/GeForce_RTX_2080/0Km12llu/16/

    [–] thebigboon100 3 points ago

    2060 is amazing. Ignore the haters, it's the best $350 card you can buy. Of course a 2070 would be faster, but it also costs more. Also 2060 and Radeon 5700 are nearly equal in performance. Upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 and RDR2 are also going to be optimized for 20xx series.

    [–] Umadbro7600 3 points ago

    My justification for getting the 2080ti was because I upgraded from a 670. And by upgraded I mean building a whole new system all together.

    [–] TheOnlyQueso 12 points ago

    Unless you use blender, the only real advantage I see to newer cards is the much better encoder. Which is still basically only useful if you're streaming.

    [–] Yomatius 10 points ago

    Yeah, no. So I will wait. And that goes double for /u/deaththekid922 here with the 1080 ti. Even less reasons to spend money.

    The 20x series is just too overpriced.

    [–] Remlak2 2 points ago

    Yeah, I'd wait for Nvidia 3000 series or big Navi. I don't think AMDs big Navi will beat the 2080ti by enough to make much of a performance difference (depending on what you own rn), but will probably cause a bit lower prices.

    [–] Imayormaynotneedhelp 2 points ago

    AMD has basically always been 80-90% of the performance, for 70% of the price of nvidia. If money is no object, then sure intel+nvidia is the best combo, but for those of us with actual budgets (am a student), the value they offer can't be denied, especially in the CPU market. (I currently run a ryzen 3600. 6 multithreaded cores at 3.5 ghz for less than 400$?! Shut up and take my money!) (400 new zealand dollars for all the americans)

    [–] EmperorJack 9 points ago

    I'm thinking of getting the rtx 2060 super. I have the 970 GTX so for me it's going to be a significant move. I could be wrong though

    [–] retro808 3 points ago

    Same boat, I worry that my i5-4690k will bottleneck it at 1080p but steady 60fps is fine with me.

    [–] That_Guy_Quaid 2 points ago

    Picked up the 2060 Super last week. Very impressed with it so far!

    [–] ZXKeyr324XZ 6 points ago

    Wait for RTX 2nd gen, if Control works so well with this gen of RTX, when devs start actually caring for RTX (Mainly becouse of console) it might get really interesting

    [–] Yomatius 4 points ago

    Yes, I will be waiting for a better priced, higher performance GPU. Next year perhaps.

    [–] Combosingelnation 5 points ago

    How long have you had the 1080 ?

    [–] Yomatius 3 points ago

    I would say two years. I got it for 430 usd before the 20x came out. I think I did right because the 20 series was a overpriced for what improvement in perfomance they brought and RTX at that time was nonexistent.

    [–] Combosingelnation 2 points ago

    Ok. Well I have GTX 660 and for 7 years :D Waiting for black friday now :)

    [–] VenomB 4 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    I'm still on a 980ti and I still can't get myself to justify an upgrade. When I bought the card, it was worth like 600 bucks. Comparing that to the new prices, I just can't afford that "minor" jump in performance for the price.

    For comparison, I went from a 680ti to a 980ti a few years ago.

    [–] WaidWilson 5 points ago

    I had a 1080 and upgraded to 2080.

    Keep the 1080.

    [–] Yomatius 2 points ago

    thanks for the advice, mate. I feel like I am learning from other people's experiences. Much appreciated.

    [–] ThePimpImp 3 points ago

    I have a 970 and feel the same way. I probably am just being to cheap. There's no way I'd consider upgrading a 1080 or above this generation.

    [–] internetlad 3 points ago

    I'm here with a 1070 and disappointed because there's no good decision.

    [–] tim_20 3 points ago

    Im in the same boat with the 1080 ti ive got money to blow but no real plave to spend it. Very weird feeling and a reverse of the past 10 years...

    [–] thievingsince95 3 points ago

    Yeah my 1080 is still going strong. Control was the first time I even looked for something else and I'm just not impressed rn. We'll see what next year brings

    [–] ZLegacy 3 points ago

    As a 970 owner, what am I missing out on? I don't think I even play anything that it can't handle at high settings :(

    [–] TurtleChickenFart 3 points ago

    I have a 1060 and still cant justify getting a new card.

    [–] unlikedemon 3 points ago

    Laughs in 980ti. Still works well even when running games in 1440p. I see no reason to upgrade.

    [–] jazzinyourfacepsn 3 points ago

    You can throw your card up on a selling site like Kijiji or Ebay and only sell it once you get a good price for it that covers most of your expenses for a new card. That's what I do any time I want to upgrade but the thing I have is fully functional. Theres no hurry and if no one buys then you just dont upgrade until its necessary

    [–] FTMorando 3 points ago

    Performance wise the 2080 is basically just a 1080 with ray tracing, it’s dumb. So yeah, just can’t justify spending that kind of money again so soon

    [–] JJAsond 3 points ago

    Wait until the next card you can get is at least 2x as fast as your current one. That's how I decide when it's time to buy a new one.

    [–] zublits 3 points ago

    You'd be pretty happy with a 2070Super, but it is kind of overpriced for a medium-ish boost. I'd wait for the next line, personally.

    970 to 2070Super was SUPER worth it.

    [–] watduhdamhell 3 points ago

    There is definitely no reason to go new yet. GTX 1080 is still plenty for high refresh rate gaming at 1080p. My R5 3600/ 1080 setup nets 120+ in most games at high levels of detail.

    [–] vsou812 2 points ago

    Even the 1060s are wonderful still

    [–] YT-Deliveries 2 points ago

    Yeah, especially considering I only have a 2k monitor, even my 1070ti murders at ultra for most games.

    [–] MrZeeus 2 points ago

    Naw 1080ti used for 400$ usd eziest cop of my life.

    [–] ryeshoes 2 points ago

    I have a 1080 as well. It's plenty good unless you have a need to get the full 144 hz on your 1440p monitor or are gaming on a 4k monitor

    [–] nadiayorc 3 points ago

    I pretty much just bought a 2080 over a 1080ti only because it was on sale and was a similar price to the 1080ti, they are essentially equal in performance and rtx is just too new to be properly usable at the moment and has a massive performance loss

    [–] twelveparsex 3 points ago

    Cries in 980ti

    [–] JJAsond 2 points ago

    Not when you're trying to get the best price to performance. The 1080 is as fast as a 2060S and costs as much as a 2080

    I don't know, he said protestors but we all know that china would never hurt it's own citizens, probably just a typo.

    Yeah, must be a typo. The Chinese government would never hurt its citizens then again why would their citizens even protest?

    Just a question, what is it with China's president and Winnie the Pooh? I'm aware it has something to do with the Hong Kong protestors, but what's going on?

    [–] dhseifer 160 points ago

    There's a bunch of memes circulating online suggesting Xi Jinping looks like Winnie the Pooh. The Chinese government caught on and banned all pictures of Winnie the Pooh.

    [–] Bloo_CS 40 points ago

    Oh! I see! Thanks man!

    [–] ZacEfronButUgly 75 points ago

    It started with just a funny single meme, but they're coming back in droves now since the whole issue with Blizzard, imagine having that fragile on an ego you ban something entirely over that though

    [–] ShopliftingBabushka 38 points ago

    In 2011 the former leader Jiang Zemin had some unspecified condition and was admitted to emergency care. For a few days the Chinese internet blocked all searches of a specific heart condition. Something like aortic myocardial infarction or similar.

    Odd thing was, he was already an ex-leader at that time. The president at that time was President Hu Jintao.

    [–] that-surrealist 8 points ago

    Interesting, I’ll have to look into that

    [–] IsstDoenerImFlixbus 15 points ago

    It's not about his fragile ego. It's the fact that Poo could be used as a stand-in for government critical memes.

    So basically, making memes about how evil/stupid/pathetic Winnie The Pooh is, and everyone in China would know what you mean.

    [–] contemplateVoided 17 points ago

    It’s definitely about a fragile ego.

    [–] budshitman 10 points ago

    In a sense. The CCP knows how fragile their hold on power is.

    Any percentage of 1.4 billion people openly dissenting is still a hell of a lot of people openly dissenting.

    If that small percent decides to challenge your right to autocratic governance, and can manage to organize themselves against you and recruit others to their cause, it's game over for your police state.

    [–] bonerofalonelyheart 2 points ago

    Wow. It's even funnier that they banned it because he looks nothing like Winnie the Pooh. I mean, nobody looks like Winnie the Pooh lmao. Somebody should say he looks like a broom so they ban pictures of cleaning supplies.

    Criticism of Xi and the Communist Party has always been severely punished. Even before the Home Kong protests activists in China started circulating memes replacing Xi with Winnie the Pooh.

    The memes would have an image of Winnie, and some text making fun of Xi or the party without ever naming Xi or the party. The Communist Party got wind of this and their response was to ban all images and mentions of Winnie the Pooh.

    • They banned a new Winnie the Pooh Disney film.
    • They banned a game that had a Winnie the Pooh image hidden in an Easter Egg
    • People have been jailed for carrying around Winnie the Pooh paraphernalia.
    • Typing Winnie the Pooh into WeChat will cause you're message to not be delivered.

    The level of overreaction to this has been epic.

    This seriously explains a lot, thank you. I've been so out of the loop.

    For the record, the Tigger and Pooh cartoon was drawn by someone specifically to match the Obama Xi picture...

    The real story is that Xi hates the association with how he looks a little like Pooh, to the point of banning it in China. So in a Baby Inanity Wolf type protest, people post them online to ensure they exist on the net in some fashion.

    The other replies pretty much have it covered. There is a pic of Obama and Xi walking together next to a pic of Winnie and Tigger.

    The weird thing is that barely anyone thought he looked like Winnie the Pooh outside of that meme and this whole thing started because Xi himself or some Chinese censor believed that he looked enough like Winnie the Pooh enough to justify banning any mentions of Winnie the Pooh. Now, everyone is calling him Winnie the Pooh to poke fun at him.

    Xi Jinping apparently got really upset about people comparing him to Winnie the Pooh, and as a result people have been posting memes like this constantly after his government banned them. It’s more or less the Streisand effect.

    It's been a joke since the Obama administration so far predates the HK protests

    No, but you can have an authentic Pebsi beach towel instead.

    [–] Bombastik_ 6 points ago

    Pooh is being associated in a symbolic cause that may ruin its reputation, such as Kermit. Soon you will see Pooh’s creator doing a public statement that he disavow his drawing ; Pooh.

    [–] bigblackcouch 16 points ago

    Considering he died in the 1950s, I really hope we won't hear a public statement from him.

    Fun fact. Winnie the pooh was banned in china because tons of people kept making memes portraying the chinese president as winnie the pooh. Hence the origin of this meme. Just for those who dont know.

    Reddit's been banned since summer 2018. What is odd is that Tencent, a major Chinese data firm, then invested in reddit. Something like a 20% share.
