It's my backup card. My gaming PC has a 6900XT and my lounge TV a 3060.

I'll leave it to ian in my will

I'll be dead by then. My backups are mostly 1070s of various descriptions (3 of these GB and an MSI somewhere)
Failing that there's some RX580s somewhere... failing that R9 290 somewhere... Failing that an R9 280... Failing that an R7 260X... failing that... Well nothing less than that is usable in any sense for any modern task.

a) have you done;
b) are you planning?
I've done too much overkill in computing to even know where to start. I guess 3 way crossfired water-cooled R9 290X's on an Asus Sabertooth x99 with an i7 5820K to play solitaire was the most batshit favourite thing I've ever done.

Fitting a 360mm radiator custom EK water-cooling loop to a Celeron 700MHz was up there in the pointless fun stakes too.

I'm currently thinking about Buying a threadripper system just so I can use all my 1070s.

I mean I could just go out and get a single 4080 and wipe the floor with with even 20 1070s...

But I'd rather 3 Ferrari F40's over 1 LaFerrari any day of the week.

Might buy a steamdeck just so I can play untitled goose game in bed and then get bored with the system when I've finished it.
If I should Die Hard Arcade before I Alan Wake.

Although I think he said more like: “I haven’t got a clue what you’re talking about, Phil. Not a fucking clue. I have a shell the size of a fist in my head. The only way I can get this toupee to stay on is by magnetising, the upper left quadrant of my skull. So you just go ahead and do what you do. Do you have any soup?

You are younger than me and I've been getting serious headaches for 6+ months, so who knows you could easily outlive me :olol:
