Hey guys, So my rig still have several years in her (3rd Gen I7 3770, 16gig RAM) but my graphics card is struggling to keep up. Its a GTX640, runs Star Citizen but its jumpy. Im kind of in that difficult no mans land. I know theres no point upgrading to a new rig yet FOR star citizen BUT when 3.0 comes out (and 4.0 and beta) I want to be running better than I am now. I want to have a formidable rig, hence I need a graphics card and I'm happy to drop enough on it to keep this machine chugging as long as possible as my main rig. Eventually I'd retire this as a second gaming PC in the house, so I'd like it to run 1440...even an oculus rig. So im looking at the high end card, the 1080s and...even wondering whether the 1080Tis are worthwhile. @Bored, sounded from your review that the difference is negligible so perhaps sticking with a straight 1080 is the way to go. Then Im wondering which cards rate well, don't sound like vaccum cleaners and are well built? Given the forward compatibility with 1440, ?4k (no idea maybe!) and VR/oculus figured 8gig at least covers it all for onboard.
