I recommend the Dell S2417DG Its only 24inch and TN but its a great bang for the buck. I have it and love the monitor. Had it for about 18 months no issues so far.


I got mine on sale for 350$ but anything below 400$ is a decent price.



As for the 2080 I have the 2080 FE it has good thermals and like the aesthetic but Id normally recommend a EVGA SC for any Nvidia card.


Id switch your cooler to the Be quite Dark Rock silent 4. And upgraded you to a 2tb drive since its few $ more. Also you have an 8700k you dont need z390 so id bump that back to z370.


I updated your list if you are interested in my thoughts.



GL and nice build!


EDIT: Price correction and spelling

Closest I could find with given specs:
Dell Gaming Monitor S2417DG YNY1D 24-Inch Screen LED-Lit TN with G-SYNC, QHD 2560 x 1440, 165Hz Refresh Rate, 1ms Response Time, 16:9 Aspect Ratio

I would echo others that 1440 on 24 is a waste. I’ve been reading around for awhile, as I will be upgrading everything eventually. I tried to do some quick research since I don’t look for 24” often, and it’s a bit hard to find one that is both 1080/144 and IPS. If you are fine with going with a cheaper TN panel you should be good (narrow viewing angles).

This one here but it’s curved:
MSI Full HD FreeSync Gaming Monitor 24" Curved Non-Glare 1ms LED Wide Screen 1920 x 1080 144Hz Refresh Rate (Optix MAG24C)

I know you said you don’t like the size of 27, but have you looked at frameless monitors? Those cut down the bulk and can be quite aesthetically pleasing. I would go for other specs first as 1440 on a 24” will needlessly bump up your cost. 1080/144, freesync, at least 1 DisplayPort (Nvidia supports freesync but only through DP, newer AMD cards support freesync through HDMI and DP). Do note, HDR is only supported on most Freesync 2 panels, which from what I’ve seen, only come on 27”+ panels.

Keep options open for adding a second panel, since the additional space is a godsend for multitasking. Higher resolution is nothing compared to two screens, even if you plan on gaming, it’s a great quality of life thing to be able to have a second panel for browsing, researching/etc.

u/gaming4good · 2 pointsr/nvidia

well the first one is free sync so no reason to buy that unless your going AMD.

The second one i think is over priced. It is probably cause it is a BenQ but it has a refresh rate of 60hz which is poor. It doesn't have either g sync or free sync.

My recommendation is

It is a little more but if you camp dell, amazon, and ebay you can find it sub 400 used, but 450 right now for new is a great deal doesn't go much below that ever. I got one for 350 used. It is 27" 1440p 144hz. It looks fantastic and has an amazing stand. The color are great after calibration and it has g sync to boot.

u/Craiger23 · 1 pointr/nvidia

Bit dark of a photo but the red looks very nice as a theme. I too use an MSI 1070 and went with Fourth Level Manufacturing's brace on amazon - Atlas Graphics Card Brace Support - 19 bucks retail

Looks like there out of stock at the moment but i got one for a discount recently and installed, as they didnt know if it would fit a 1070 as they said they couldnt get there hands on one themselves. It fits great, price is very good.. i'm only concerned if i can keep it in my case if i get a 2nd 1070 once the prices drops haha..

My own install can be seen @ Thanks!

u/Celsian · 2 pointsr/nvidia

You'll be pleased with a QHD. The 1080 Ti can max out 144hz in quite a few games including R6: Siege, Overwatch, Doom (Vulkan), Quake Champions and many other recent titles. Don't count on getting that in games like Ghost Recon or GTA V though. Open Worlders take their toll when you increase all settings to ultra, but with respectably high settings in those games you can easily keep the FPS above 90.

That being said I have a 27" QHD and would recommend the extra few inches. IPS type panels have far better colors than any other panel type. Make sure you buy a true 8bit and not 6bit+WhateverBSTechTheyTackOnToMakeYouThinkItsGood. Trust me, it's not. Now that I've had an IPS-Like monitor (AHVA) I will never go back to a TN. If you're wondering, I have an ASUS PG279Q. You can find it cheaper elsewhere on PCPartPicker.

u/Wipeout416 · 1 pointr/nvidia

I want to get a 1060 6gb, which of these 3 do you think I should get? I don't really care what it looks like, an am a complete nab when it comes to the differences. Running one 1080 monitor. I want to spend around 260. I currently have x2 EVGA 570s, so it'll be a huge upgrade. Thanks in advance reddit. Feel free to suggest something else, too.

  1. EVGA SC single fan -
  2. Gigabyte G1 dual fan
  3. ASUS OC dual fan
u/v1neyard · 1 pointr/nvidia

That is the monitor I got. I also have 3 others that are 1080p. I have the 1440p in the middle of my setup, with two 1080p on either side and one above it.

I definitely wouldn't want to get a titan, they are pretty old as far as I know (regardless of how powerful they are), and I know there will be newer models within a few months/years that will probably retire those.

Back to my questions:
I understand that not every game will possibly run 1440p at 144fps. Mainly I play PUBG, Overwatch, League, CSgo, WoW... Mostly mainstream games.

  1. Which model of the 1080ti would you recommend for what I'm trying to do?
  2. Would I need watercooling to the GPU?
  3. Would I be better off with just a plain 1080 and if so, which model?
u/Xriptix · 1 pointr/nvidia

If money isn't a big issue, then imo this is the best ultrawide , best current 4K , best 1440p

u/Nvidiuh · 1 pointr/nvidia

If you have a monitor without variable refresh technology and you are unable to consistently support its refresh rate, you will have screen tearing to some degree. At 144Hz it becomes less noticeable, but it is still present. I looked at the monitor you were looking at and I think I found what might be perfect for you. Enter the Dell S2417DG. This monitor is right at the same price as the one you're looking into getting, and unless you absolutely are dead set on 27", everything about this monitor is better. It's 1440P, 165 Hz, and has G-Sync. The trick with G-Sync is to enable it in the Nvidia Control Panel then enable V-Sync on top of it just in case you actually hit the maximum refresh rate. What this does is allows G-Sync to work between 30 and 164 FPS and V-Sync caps it at 165 FPS to prevent overscanning and create screen tearing issues. The result of this is a game-play experience as smooth and clear as polished optical glass. Just make sure that when you enable V-Sync in the control panel, you disable it in all of your games, as having two programs trying to control refresh rates can cause conflicts and reduce stability. The control panel should override the game, as it is a global setting, but it's a good precaution to take.

u/Intel8700k · 1 pointr/nvidia

> "May the IPS Lottery odds be ever in your favor, friends"

Ahhh noooooooo. I was just going to suggest against getting that monitor and anything related to it. The Acer, AOC, Viewsonic, and Asus monitors all use the same panel from the same company, AU Optronics.

I have had 3 Acer, 2, AOC, 2 Viewsonic and 3 Asus monitors. I would find issues with it, go back and exchange it for another one. I had issues such as: dead pixels all over the screen, dust in the screen, severe scratches INSIDE the screen(this was on more than one monitor actually), bad bad lightbleed(not IPS glow) and deep sleep issues even though I had the option turned off.

I got tired of going back to Microcenter and exchanging so I gave up. I ended up going with the Dell 1440p 144hz gsync TN panel. I was reluctant to go back to TN after I had just switched to IPS but it turned out better in the end. I bought the Dell and the first one was good.
Here's the link if you want it if you have issues:

Edit: Forgot to mention that the Dell is a good price. It's 449 at best buy if you want to order there if you have issues.

u/magn2o · 1 pointr/nvidia

Although I have nothing but good things to say about my Mnpctech GPU brace, I admit it can be pricey. There's a more affordable brace available on Amazon, the Atlas Graphics Card Brace.

I actually have both of these braces. The Atlas worked perfectly fine for me, but I preferred the fit and polish of the Mnpctech brace (plus it's aluminum, whereas the Atlas is plastic).

u/Lavitzlegend · 1 pointr/nvidia

Go down to the review section and the first recommended review "sweet monitor after calibration" lists all the settings to get the best realistic colors and hue. These values are based on an in depth review done by TFT Central if you are curious to dig deeper into a full monitor review for the Dell s2716dg

u/TheRealMisterFix · 3 pointsr/nvidia

Yes, just make sure to use an active converter. The passive (unpowered) ones can't pass enough bandwidth to the monitor to drive 1920x1080@144hz. I have three of the active connectors and they work fine. Expensive, though! (~ $100).

Here's an Amazon link for the ones I use:

u/Gahvynn · 1 pointr/nvidia

It's the Acer Predator XB271HU, 27 inch 1440P/144 Hz with G-sync, I got it here.

I plan on using this thing for the next 6+ years and so far I’m very happy. It’s not cheap but compared with $3-500 GPUs that might take some people for 2-3 years this should last 2x that. When I last upgraded from my GTX 770 to 970 it was a good upgrade and I could generally max games out but the difference in image quality in that upgrade doesn’t compare with the clarity and smoothness that this monitor provides. I’ve never experienced free-sync so I can’t comment but it seems tying your monitor’s refresh rate to your GPU output (to the max of the monitor) really makes a big difference. My old monitor had so much tearing on games like Battlefield 4 (even strategy games like Rome II Total War) but with my new monitor there has been none.

u/guns_r_us · 1 pointr/nvidia

I'm running dual 1080p right now but upgrading to dual 1440p when I get a new card. (I would suggest trying out the 1440p if you get a chance, ever since I did I'm salivating over the dell 27 inch displays with super thin bezels.) I'm getting one of each:

1080ti might be overkill for 1080p but will be future proof for years. I'm hoping for 100+ fps @ 1440p on the 1080 ti.

u/ragamuffinpuddingpie · 1 pointr/nvidia

Ah thanks for that link, I've wishlisted it for future use. If you don't mind me asking, I thought that aftermarket versions generally had better cooling solutions than the FE? Why not just go with those?

P.S. Do you happen to know what the differences between the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB FTW DT GAMING ACX 3.0 and the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 are?
Both can be found , but only the DT version ships to where I am. Thanks.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/nvidia

I honestly didn’t realize Corsair was making their AIOs with all black blocks now. That looks so clean and dope! Also, spend the $13 and get yourself a good GPU support brace. That’s a super long card and you wouldn’t want warping or snapping to hit you.

u/bkral93 · 5 pointsr/nvidia

I would look at the G-sync 1440p 144hz monitors.

You may need to turn down a few things to keep high fps, but some day you'll want to upgrade your GPU. And at that point, you'll have the monitor for it.

That is the best bang for the buck when it comes to 1440p, 144hz, G-sync. I owned 2, and then upgraded one to a PG348q Ultrawide.

There are still a good amount of games that that 1070 will push high fps in at 1440p.

u/Zer0_210 · 1 pointr/nvidia

It is a pretty badass little card support thing that is sold on Amazon. It has an extension pole, and two adjystable legs in case you are running SLI. Check it out:

u/DaBombDiggidy · 2 pointsr/nvidia

yeah try for one of those 24" 1080 144hz gsync panels. it'll look amazing, i have the 1440p version of it i got off an acer refurb. love the damn thing. the one below is a good example, i see it go on sale time to time too if you're patient.

u/Dr3amCast · 1 pointr/nvidia

I haven't had much experience with cards of this size. It's definitely the largest heatsink I've owned as well. I mean, it's got GIRTH. I didn't notice sag, per say, but the way I run my 8 pin connectors from the back of my case it pulls a little downward and the card was more than happy to oblige. I haven't done anything about it yet, but more than likely I will. I can link you to some options I was looking at:

I was originally looking at one of these 2:

But I read there that this brace can interfere with your fans depending on how wide the card is. This card is a wide card, and I have 2 120mm side fans that this would disrupt airflow from

So I'm most likely going to go with this:

u/firepixel · 2 pointsr/nvidia

Gigabyte 1070 G1 Gaming pre-order currently available on Amazon in case you want to play it safe, I plan on canceling Amazon order if I score one from NewEgg later tonight. Amazon doesn't charge until they ship so it's zero-risk.

u/ImNateGibson · 1 pointr/nvidia

Nice build! If you're getting GPU sag, I saw someone post this brace a couple days ago, and it seems pretty nice.

u/HlCKELPICKLE · 1 pointr/nvidia

Something like this

You'll have to do research and make sure they can do 144hz, there is a cheaper dell one that appears not to, without issues anyway.

The one I think seems to be fine, but its worth double checking I just searched the reviews/answers for 144 and one person said it worked, I make to guarantees and don't have time to check thoroughly.

You need a displayport to dual link dvi active adapter, but just because they are one doesn't mean they will always have 144hz compatibility.

u/MiningPotatoes · 1 pointr/nvidia

I got the Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming, but not with GDDR5X. 110 fps on Epic for Overwatch, and it was only $420 on Amazon. Works great!

u/Suicide_anal_bomber · 1 pointr/nvidia

yeah it should work ,, since you got a radiator you will have to put it on the white bar, i think on mine on the bottom of the stand theres a screw if you loosen you can move it around to fit on the white bit, something like this would work better for you

this one is what i used

they are not that long, its two bars screwed togsther for 2 card support, you can use just one bar and it should be algs

EDIT: just realized you dont have a front mounted radiator in which case either one will work

u/Baeissa · 2 pointsr/nvidia

I went with ASUS STRIX because I have ASUS HERO MB. It's just me, I like going with the same brand. I believe the STRIX will have sag after time, not convinced of its anti sag bracket. I bought this to help
There are other products similar but I already have this. Not sure if it's gonna work as this support brace is meant for 2 slot cards but it seems flexible and may help.

u/wuhkay · 3 pointsr/nvidia

My friend has one of the Dell ones. This is about the best price I have seen.

u/ItchyConstruction · 2 pointsr/nvidia

You need an active DP/DVI adapter if you want more than 60Hz. You can tell the adapter is active if it has an additional USB cable for power.

Something like this.

u/joshmo23 · 1 pointr/nvidia

I know its quite a bit over your budget right now, but I just got a Dell S2417DG for ~ 472CAD a week weeks ago. It really an amazing monitor. Even scrolling reddit is noticeably smoother.

u/Frograumer · 1 pointr/nvidia

Looks like Amazon raised the price of the FTW to $699.99, just a heads up (currently unable to purchase at that price however as it is out of stock).

u/Rhinownage · 1 pointr/nvidia

>EVGA 1080s are still hotter and now louder than every other competing brand

That's quite the opposite of what I've been reading. Reviews everywhere are praising it into heaven. Youtubers, Newegg, Amazon... But I have to admit I have not opened my box yet, so I cannot yet give judgement on that myself. What kind of temperatures are you getting on your 1080 SC? Do you have any of the fixes applied?

The way I see it, EVGA just dropped the ball on their VRM cooling. They do not make contact with any heat dissipating surfaces AT ALL. In such a circumstance, it's normal for them to heat up immensely. VRM's always have a tendency to get hot. If i'm not mistaken they're often rated to work indefinitely at up to 125°c(!), though that definitely varies between different sorts. Everyone is panicking and losing their head. But if the cooling pads disperse the heat through the larger surface areas of the cooling pad itself and the huge metal backplate, then what's there to worry about? None of the fixed cards have shown any issues so far (please, do correct me if I'm wrong).

u/Daneth · 2 pointsr/nvidia

I have this one, it's been amazing in the year I've had it. I heard you sometimes have to go through a couple to get a good one though.

u/LEDsForEyes · 1 pointr/nvidia

They are pretty flexible, actually. You can move them around quite a bit. I had them set up like you but I got tired of them resting against the door and wanted them a little more out of the way.

If you wanted to, you could at least fit a powerlink on your card and get those cables out of the way a bit more. Not bad for $10. I can't fit one, so I went with custom GPU cables that look a little nicer.

> there's no real space for the CPU power connector


I had very similar issues getting the CPU connector in there. When I purchased custom braided cables, I included the CPU cable because they're a lot more flexible than the stock power supply cables. So that helped maneuver it in there.

u/Nestledrink · 4 pointsr/nvidia

The EVGA Founders Edition is currently on sale right this minute:

Personally, I would get an EVGA GTX 1080 SC or FTW model because their customer service is one of the better ones.

u/Me-as-I · 1 pointr/nvidia

Oh I didn't see the link at the end.

That'll work. It does mean you don't benefit from the freesync, that's amd only. To get that tech with an nvidia gpu, you need a gsync monitor. Not a dealbreaker, it's still good.

I would say a 1080ti is overkill for 1080p, even at 144Hz.

You may want to consider getting something like this with a cheaper gpu like a 1080.

u/marbar8 · 1 pointr/nvidia

Look at this


If you're willing to spend ~$14, this is a pretty solid solution. I own it and am happy with it.

u/pburgess22 · 4 pointsr/nvidia Something like this. IPS so the colour accuracy is good, 165hz oc as well. All these panels have issues with backlight bleed. Mine has a tiny bit you cannot notice it unless sitting on a purely black screen.

u/Archlicht · 2 pointsr/nvidia

US Amazon has them available for pre-order still. Might as well put one in there if that's the card you're interested in. They don't charge until they ship and it's easy to cancel if you find one before then.

u/khaki54 · 6 pointsr/nvidia

Well either get an active adapter like this one:

Or spend that $100+ to upgrade your monitor.

u/x_splice · 1 pointr/nvidia

Give 165hz a chance. Being limited to 60hz just feels so bad after having high refresh rate. I switched from my 4k 60hz panel to this and I enjoy it much more.

Otherwise stack your pennies for that sweet sweet 4k 144hz panel. (A lot of pennies)

u/UrMom306 · 1 pointr/nvidia

Looks like the price went up to 18, but still pretty cheap.

u/MasterChiefKing · 1 pointr/nvidia

Any kind of port such as Display Port, Mini-Display or HDMI will support G-Sync, But it's important that your monitor has to get G-Sync chip included.

For what I see, that your monitor apparently doesn't support this feature, there is no use of buying any 'specific' cable in this case to support G-Sync. If you wanna to get the G-Sync monitor you have to go after monitors like this or like that. The G-Sync system is sold by a manufacturer who has a contract with Nvidia and is licenced to sell a monitor with G-Sync feature enabled.

u/splodead · 1 pointr/nvidia

You could get a card brace like this LINK.

They take up the adjacent slot and clamp onto the card to give it support. I'm unsure how helpful they wind up being and have never used one.

u/0bviousTruth · 2 pointsr/nvidia

Yeah, saw it on Amazon and thought it might be a good idea since GPUs keep getting bigger.

u/akhilsukh01 · 1 pointr/nvidia

i was reading this review on amazon( and someone tried to sli two zotac amp extremes but got high temps like 80 at 60% load with the zotac 1080 amp extreme (the one im getting is a 1080 amp edition which is smaller. SO she got a a pci-e extender and that fixed it. also her cards barely fit, im not sure how im going to do it with my mobo, btw she had a x99 sabertooth.

u/neverinlife · 1 pointr/nvidia

Probably the same one. Can't recommend enough. I was worried about it being a TN panel but it is beautiful.

u/Zadoose · 1 pointr/nvidia

Has anyone found a fix for this? It seems to happen everyday now and seems to happen more often if i havent used the keyboard/mouse for a while. But can also happen while im doing things on my pc as well. I thought it was because my gpu is sort of old and might have compatibilty issues like this because it cant do 1440p @ 144hz because of the gpu's pixel capacity and thought maybe the fact that the max refresh rate isnt on 144 and the gpu was giving out because ive got a dual monitor setup with a 1080p 60 fps monitor. But if youre having problems with a 980 ti then that cant be it. Im using the dell 2716dg monitor which has the same capabilities as the asus one except that it doesnt have 3d vision but that shouldnt matter because supposedly 3d and g sync cant be on at the same time. Have you guys ever found a solution since this is about 5 months old?

u/PlayDohBear · 1 pointr/nvidia

here's what i originally bought:

(out of stock now)

here are some other ones, although i'll say this. the reason i went with the above is due to the length being able to support the right side of the card (this is where the weight is shifting for mine).

(there are some with cool led's)

u/Shablo5 · 6 pointsr/nvidia

As far as I know, the 1070 cannot obtain 144FPS on ULTRA in most games (Although are you ONLY playing the latest games? No? Then it's half relevant). That said, Gsync has you the rest of the way.

Problem is, gsync is also a $150-$200 premium (at least in Canadian) to any monitor. They will tell you to buy monitors like this or this but it's hard to justify those 1440P monitors.

If you turn down your expectation to a 1080p gsync 144hz, then things become a bit more reasonable. But if you're an enthusiast, perhaps you really want to push the limit and try the 1440p 144hz g-sync bandwagon out.

u/carr084 · 2 pointsr/nvidia

For me I bought this. Works well.

u/terraphantm · 2 pointsr/nvidia

It's a solid $200+ premium for comparable monitors. That's not nothing. That coupled with G-sync monitors having crappier input options (just one displayport and one HDMI in almost all cases), and the value proposition just isn't there if we weren't forced to go gsync.

u/_Kinchouka_ · 1 pointr/nvidia

Don't look further, DP to DVI adapter can't go above 60 Hz. You monitor use DVI dual link but adapter will give you only single link. If you have only DVI input on your monitor, you will have to buy a DP to DVI dual link active adapter.

u/Azuroth · 1 pointr/nvidia

I just bought one of these 1440p gsync monitors for 354 yesterday. It's a factory refurb, but brand new are 390. Not quite 300, but certainly less than double.

u/fuleamakkup4 · 1 pointr/nvidia

It's not possible. Get an AMD card if you want to use it. Alternatively if you really want to stick with NVIDIA you can get a cheap G-SYNC monitor like this one and return or sell the one you're currently using.

u/datbird · 1 pointr/nvidia - I just bought one of these a month ago along with a 1080. As someone who's been gaming since the mid-80's and has seen the rise of 3D gaming, it was my first g-sync enabled monitor. I have to say I would give away my new shiny GTX 1080 and use my old 770 for the time being if it meant I could keep this monitor. I strongly encourage you to get your self the g-sync with high refresh rate, and do what you gotta do on the graphics card front.

It’s sagging lol. Heavily recommend to buy a brace support to avoid further damage to the pci slot. Here’s a solid product and very affordable.

u/Thorawr · 2 pointsr/nvidia

AOC G2460PG and the Asus - ROG SWIFT PG248Q are the cheapest 1080p ones. Hovering around 340-350 USD.

The Dell S2417DG is the cheapest 1440p one at around 450 USD.

These are all TN panels. If you want IPS, you're looking at 750+ USD.

And the Acer XB280HK is the cheapest 4k at around 515 USD

u/PalebloodSky · 1 pointr/nvidia

Sure this is a good 1080p 240Hz G-Sync Compatible one (what Nvidia calls FreeSync now). The G-Sync range is 48-240Hz. The only downside being it's a TN panel so colors aren't as good as IPS but it's very fast:

If your budget is much higher then look at a 1440p IPS G-Sync panel like this:

For single player games I usually just lock the game at 60 FPS using Ultra/High settings and use G SYNC, for multiplayer games I adjust my settings so I can be between 120-144 fps. I recommend 1440p IPS, definitely a noticeable difference compared to 1080p. Virtually no input lag either if you worry about that kind of stuff.

Dell Gaming Monitor S2417DG YNY1D 24-Inch Screen LED-Lit TN with G-SYNC, QHD 2560 x 1440, 165Hz Refresh Rate, 1ms Response Time, 16:9 Aspect Ratio

Perhaps this one would be good?

If you picked up an EVGA power adapter thing for your card, it’ll look even better.

Gigabyte for the coil whine or EVGA for the House Fire. I kid, mostly.

EVGA 1060 SC version is alright.

Do not get the cheapo one (which overheats at 91C under load); avoid their ACX 3.0 cooled versions (SSC and FTW models) for now.

How mini is your ITX case? Do you really need to settle on a single fan option?

I bought this one for the 1070. Great price point, with 1440p and G-sync. If money isn't an obstacle for you, go with the same specs but in a IPS panel.

You could also use a stick. Saw that Galax has a stick they send with their GTX 1070/1080 Hall of Fame cards. If you want to be flash, I wouldn't recommend using an unsharpened pencil...but.

I've also seen this:

Though 18 dollars and shipping for a piece of acrylic is a lot for what it is, it may serve the purpose.

Also zip ties > twisty ties every day of the week.

There is this bracket on Amazon. Also the Cooler Master HAF X comes with a VGA support bracket for multiple cards.

u/Casters4eva · 1 pointr/nvidia

First one if you want cheap. 2nd one if you want gsync as well. I'd probably step up to 1440p with a 1080ti though. That card is overkill for 1080p

You'll need something like to convert your GPU's DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI.

You could always just buy a GPU brace, like this one.

Dell 24" 144Hz 1440p G-Sync....Only draw back is its TN but still not bad deal.

Best Buy


u/RogueSorcerer · 2 pointsr/nvidia

Here is a link for a great looking brace. Don't know how important aesthetics are for you but it is less than $18.

Its always like this, every single time since beginning of time. This is completely normal. They dont make a million of them before selling them, they sell/ship them as they make them. Over time the production ramps up and demand goes down.

About 2 weeks after launch the supply chain will stabilize and they will be in stock everywhere. Its already starting to stabilize. It took about 12 hours for Nvidia store to go out of stock today. It was basically available all day long. PNY was also, and looks like still is available -
its only been a week. I imagine a week from today 1080 will be available no problem from many retailers without going out of stock. 1070 will go through the same cadence though.

EDIT - Amazon has it going in and out of stock for $699, but when it runs out its repllaced by non amazon ones for $800 - so if its showing the 800$ one check back in 30 min or so, Amazon keeps adding stock once they sell out every 30 min or so.

As far as partner cards, those typically come 2 to 4 weeks after Reference (FE) ones come out. So for those look for Mid June to mid July.

This should be exactly what you're looking for.

The bottom is magnetized as well, so it will stick to the case surface.

I’ve been using this one, none of the side bracket ones work well with the bigger 2080s in my experience.

Here are two different RTX 2080 builds I’ve worked on that use it with it. The bracket has 2 pieces for height so you only need the shorter one.

I've got one of these so I'd like to take advantage of the 144hz. Plus a little future proofing

u/juggarjew · 1 pointr/nvidia

You have to add insurance, and you'll almost never have a box that exactly fits that size. You'll note the shipping weight is about 3.5 lbs for most GTX 1080's on Amazon, we assume we will be paying for 4lbs shipped.

So from NC, it will always be around $20 or so. I dont ship smartpost as I want my items to get there, USPS is by far the fastest(and most economical) for smaller cross country shipments. I use UPS ground for larger shipments that would be cheaper with UPS, though cross country ground service is slowwwwwww.

It's just a powerlink adapter which routes the PCIE power ports to the side instead of the front. Looks slightly cleaner to me. I got it on sale for $5 a while ago. Here it is on Amazon

u/zodiacsoldier · 3 pointsr/nvidia

Hey have you considered getting the EVGA PowerLink it's only $10 on Amazon. Will make the cable management a little cleaner

u/Pyromonkey83 · 2 pointsr/nvidia

Depending on how your case and GPU work, you can sometimes use one of these EVGA Powerlink adapters which route your GPU cables to the side instead of straight down in front. If you have grommets there it makes them almost disappear entirely.

u/sumthingcool · 2 pointsr/nvidia

You need an active DP to DVI adapter, a passive one won't do 144 and your monitor only has HDMI 1.4 so DP to HDMI isn't an option.

Be careful there are tons of shit adapters that claim they are dual link but are not. You'll need to spend $80 or so for a real one.

u/Elamint · 1 pointr/nvidia


It will be at my house tomorrow, Ill show you a pic when I get it setup. Thanks again

u/nasenbaer97 · 1 pointr/nvidia

Probably wont work. Used a DP to DVI-Dual Link for a 144hz monitor and it did just 60hz. If you buy a Graphics Card without a DVI-Port you'll need a powered DP to DVI-Dual Link adapter (Costs around 100 bucks:
A DP to DVI adapter thats not powered doesnt have the power to send 144hz.

I don't have direct links to Australian shops but maybe there's one of these available in your region:

Mnpctech, Puget, Atlas or any kind of bolster.

u/amorpisseur · 19 pointsr/nvidia

Here are the other EVGA ones:

u/badger50100 · 1 pointr/nvidia

why are there never any asus strix 1070's in stock (not the scalpers that are priced 100-150 more than that actual price)?

579 is that really the price for a freaken 1070?

u/skytbest · 1 pointr/nvidia

where are you seeing 2020mhz? I'm looking at the amazon page and it says it OC's to 1860mhz
