    I'm just using a cheap hydraulic monitor arm that I got from Lazada. Loop Alloy's the name.

    The size of the monitors are 34-inch for the primary monitor and 27 for the portrait one. Btw, I've since put the primary monitor on its own monitor arm as well. Also Loop Alloy, except it's the regular steel one since that monitor's much heavier (13kg; the hydraulic one can only carry up to 8kg).

    Great! I was actually looking at both Loop Alloy and North Bayou in Lazada, so it's good that you can attest to the latter. I was thinking of having a single 34inch monitor, but I guess I'll just use my current one as a secondary monitor-- kind of like your setup. Thank you! (y)

    You can look at Lenovo's latest 5/5i/7 series. (Very satisfied with my Lenovo L340, especially with its better thermals for occasional gaming)

    Thanks. I'm mostly interested in playing enhanced/remastered PC ports of console games rather than traditional PC games you play with keyboard and mouse.

    Quick update on my quest to get a 2080 Super on quarantine: Finally got one. However, I think I went too far down the rabbit hole, and bought a larger case and more fans...

    I honestly don't know how I justified it. Looks good though :ROFLMAO:

    Thanks to this post, I got the Lenovo 5i (i7-10th, RTX2060, RGB keyboard).

    My son is very satisfied so far. :)

    There it is, folks.
    RTX 3090 - $1499
    RTX 3080 - $699
    RTX 3070 - $499

    RTX 3070, as claimed by Nvidia, will be stronger than the RTX 2080TI.

    So glad I waited. AMD, your turn. If I’m not happy with Big NAVI 2, I’ll definitely be more than happy with an RTX 3070.

    Mm...3070 seems to be the sweet spot (performance gain vs. price tag). Exciting times to upgrade. Time to dump my 1080. Good job nvidia.

    Expect higher prices than the SRP because of lack of competition. Especially that 3070.

    I can't even buy a reasonably priced pre-owned 1080 Ti. Hopefully it will go down once the 3000 series arrives.

    The RTX 3090 can do 8k 60fps, so technically it means that it can do 4k 144hz or 2k 240hz++ in ultra? That thing is a beast.

    We get higher prices because of the profit margins set by opportunistic retailers due to early demand, not because of the lack of competition. We see this happen with almost every new product release be it from Nvidia, AMD or Intel.

    AIB manufacturers like Asus, MSI, etc. also price higher than srp because of factory overclocks (binning), upgraded board components/power delivery, custom cooling, etc. of their non-reference offerings.

    I for one am glad that Nvidia decided to offer this price/performance ratio for the 3080 and 3070 because the fact is, they are actually competing with themselves. The whole point of this as Jensen Huang said in the livestream, is to convince Pascal holdouts to finally upgrade. Maybe that and to make sure they maintain a comfortable technological lead against RDNA2 and the next-gen consoles.

    mm...my guess is around Php 30k local for the 3070, founder’s...the same price I paid for the 1080 many years ago. My 1080 still performs quite well with current games at ultra settings with my 1440p monitor which I have no plan of upgrading.

    It will. It should. Trying to beat the arrival of the new generation GPUs, some 2000 series owners are already letting go of their GPU's at a price not far from what they bought it for.
