I already told you ages back that a 750 is fine if you are sticking with the 1080. If you go 1080Ti then up it to 850, as the Ti can use up to 250w alone. Which is why you don't want a stock one, as they sound like Heathrow on a busy morning as soon as you load them up to 80% or more. We're talking 100% fans.

Yes. You did. I was more asking about the 1080ti though.

I'm in a quandary, and don't know which way to go (talk about first world problems...lol). On the one hand, for what i do, I'm fairly sure that the 1080 would be enough. Plus the cost of the ti is the cost of the system plus half again.
On the other hand, there's more variety in water blocks for the ti, they are easier to get, and provide more benefit. Plus better performance.
But the cost.... And around and around we go. Lol.

I should ping AngryGoldFish. He got the 1080 in his. Would be good to know how he finds out at 1440....

Edit: i could always dedicate 600mm rad space to cooling the ryzen i guess. Wonder if it would mean i could push the volts up higher?

My Titan XM was just about enough for ultra settings on 1440p. So we are talking around 1070 levels. 1080 IMO would be about enough now, as that was a while back and games are getting heavier.

I am running a Titan XP @ 1440p and sometimes DSR to 4k and it is obviously more than a match for 1440p.

Re 1080 water block: sure, it's not needed as such. But if i don't use it, I'll have 600mm of radiator just to cool a cpu, which is massively overkill. No reason not to add the gpu in imo.

Does raise an interesting point: should i consider the ti? I initially wrote it off due to cost ( i mean seriously i would be spending 50% again the cost of the entire rest off the system!) and for the resolution I'm planning on running the benefit seemed to be questionable in terms of value.

If i were to get a ti, would i need to up the psu to >1000W?
No a 750 is fine for you. Since you are using 1 GPU. I was saying that you would hit a wall with overclocking AND used a 500W.

Ti is a fantastic card and leaves the 1080 behind. But cost wise, its a poor performance v value ratio. So it comes down to budget simple

Whelp, I'm happy. I finally found a way to get the ti that i crave, for a price I'm willing to pay. The best part? It's a reference design.

The worst? It's from a fairly obscure company. One i know very like about: Inno3D. Anyone know anything about them?

I have heard of them but sadly no experience with their products

If it's a reference card then it wasn't made by them any way, it was made by a company called Manli. Well, that is who used to make all of Nvidia's cards for them. If Nvidia are actually making the cards themselves now then it will be an Nvidia card, if it is reference.

It just means Inno3D bought them naked and then put their cooler on.

I don't know if it's different in Aus but it doesn't really matter who you buy from in the EU. The warranty is covered by the place you bought it from, not the manufacturer. The retailer then has to sort it with the manufacturer unless it has an extended warranty (like Asus etc three years) then you have to RMA it with them if the retailer refuses.

Asus CS is the worse I have ever had to deal with don't get me wrong I love their Motherboards but when my Sabertooth AM3+ failed and was on the 5 year extended warranty Asus said I didn't buy it from the country I lived in. I bought it from Amazon so got them to sort it out. I'm not knocking their products but their CS needs sorting out

Always been like that unfortunately. MSI isn't much better tbh.

Woah. You guys are fast!

Much the same warranty wise here Alien. It's up to the reseller to sort out.
