The first new game mode sine the beta released is being added to Red Dead Online today . It's called Gun Rush and it's a battle royale mode.

Yeah, I figure the 1080 will be more than enough to last me a few years until I feel like doing another massive overhaul to my entire rig. I'm not quite sure what to expect to pay for it though. I had a 780 in mine prior, but I don't want to drop TOO much money on the 1080 since it's, well, a few years old. I'll still pay a fair price though.

Uhhh yeah a GTX 1080 is absolutely still top of the line. I'm keeping mine for another two years unless my money situation changes drastically soon. Or until Nvidia stops putting their sausages into their customer's keisters. Don't let the tech industry pull one over on you, you do NOT need any kind of RTX unless you absolutely HAVE to have top of the top of the top of the line. As of now, RTX is a fad. It's a joke in terms of what the customers get from price to performance ratio. If you have money to burn, okay yes, it's awesome. If not, it's a slap to the face. Like all techonlogy that jumps quicker than the industry can keep up with, it's going to be a good loooong while before we see games using RTX in the everyday scenario that doesn't utterly destroy the FPS.

So absolutely, if you can find a 1080 that's around 350-420, do it. I just sold one on ebay for 500 bucks (I wasn't scamming, that was the Buy It Now price and for some reason someone did it; there wasn't even any bids yet lmao, which I will not argue against since I'm broke) so there is still a HUGE market for it because again, anyone that knows the technology beyond laymen terms knows that a 1080 is still an extremely powerful card that, unless you're going 4K, is good to go for at least a couple years to come.

It's a weird time for the GPU industry because we've got mining cards on the market still, we've got RTX breaking out of the gates saying that it's revolutionary when in reality it's nothing more than a fad (twice over, barring those that have the money and monitors for it) and Nvidia is sitting on a goldmine of Pascal cards that are perfectly adequate (or more so, in my opinion, when it comes to the 1080ti). Be wary, look in detail over what cards your buying (i.e. don't buy an ebay card that uses stock photos that is SUPER cheap and also don't buy a card that has "mining" every other word because it's probably someone trying to slip their beef in your taco).

eBay absolutely has the price to performance ratio down, you just have to look for it. There's tons of people out there wanting to upgrade that will sell off their near-perfect 1080's for a whoooole lot cheaper than retail price, it just takes a little detail oriented eyeing and some luck.


In actual video game news. RESIDENT EVIL 2 REMAKE DEMO MY BOIS!!!! I'M ABOUT TO PLAY IT AHHHH! I cannot believe it's 30 minute demo but I know that once I'm done I'll be glad because I'd literally play it every day until the actual game releases if there was no cut off and probably get burned out. I never thought this would happen after how long the wait between the REmake and RE2...make. But it's here. Kind of. Fuck YES.

I agree with Tio, I bought a 2080 simply because I wanted a new gen card. That being said I'm about to install Battlefield V to see how abyssal RTX is.

Awesome, a 1080 it is then. Time to save. :)

I was under the impression that since the 1080 was a few years old there was already a card out there just as good if not better for what I'd pay for a 1080, but again I've fallen way out of the loop since the Switch came out and stole my attention for gaming.

Yeah a 1080 is still one of the top cards and the new ones are only slightly better but not significantly at all, plus barely any games that support RTX  :P . Now that the cryptocurrency madness has been slowly dying, you can get a 1080 Ti for peanuts.

The crypto market really wrecked gpu prices for a while.

Go to www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales and check daily. Occasionally some good deals on a 1080 or 1080ti will pop up. I think a few days ago there was a 1080 for something like $380.

I have a 1080 myself and so far it can handle everything I throw at it, it's a great card.

I am playing the Resident evil 2 demo now. Holy shit. Not only is it damn good, but creepy as fuck. I remember being freaked out by the original when I was like 8, but this is a WHOLE nother level. God damn

I hope this game does real well.

Any really good golf games on the newer consoles?  Links 2004 is by far the best of all golf games I've played, and that was on the original Xbox and PC's at the time. The Tiger Woods games don't even hold a candle to Links 2004.

By far my favorite golfing game was Lee Carvallo's putting challenge  ;)

In all seriousness, Mario Golf on N64 was one of the best golfing games ever made.

Are there any new golfing games?  I haven't played one in ages and based on the comments here seems the best were all from the past.  Feels like wrestling games, although I know they spit one out every year or so, but the best are the old ones from N64 (No Mercy FTW).

Well I finished the man story of Red Dead II and just started the epilogue. Easily the best game I've ever played. They really did a great job with all of the character development.
