I have to keep mine horizontal and the stand makes me so nervous. I brought it over to my parents house during the storms last week and had to keep my door shut at all times for fear of a cat jumping on it (their cats love sitting on the PS4 I keep at their house) and sending it flying.

Cut a PS5 shaped hole into the top of your TV stand so the bottom rests on the shelf below. It'll never tip over.

it's not just GPU's. Pretty much every chip being made is in short supply. New cars are being delayed as they can't get chips for their computers.

I wonder how long until places like TSMC become critical to national security and have insane security built up around them.

u/Dank_Turtle 7d ago

Super big regrets on not getting a 2080 after 3000 series cards were announced but tbh my 1070 has lasted me two computers and I really don’t have any performance issues where I feel it’s necessary. Then again I also play a lot on switch nowadays so my standards have dropped lol

u/Kalladdin 7d ago

Truth is that a lot of the newer/higher end graphics cards are super overkill for almost all circumstances.

u/TheTeaSpoon 7d ago

My 1070 is a champ. But I'll upgrade when prices stabilise since it does struggle with my new monitor (went from 1080p to 1440p) in some games that I play (e.g. Tarkov, RDR2, Insurgency: Sandstorm). It is able to hold 60FPS but... I am priviledged and overly self important now... after owning 144Hz monitors for 6 years I want ideally 120+ FPS.

Man how did I get here... I used to play CS:Source/TF2 on a laptop at like 17-20FPS as a teenager... I dug up my old laptop to fire up some nostalgia and all I got was motion sickness and headache. Damn past me... you were resilient.

I don't understand why anyone would pay that much for a GPU. Buying last year's mid-range always seems to last me for 3-4 years for a fraction of the cost.

Then again, I'm also a patient gamer and don't get the freshest games as soon as they come out either.

11

u/Joemarais 7d ago

Sadly last year's midrange (2060 I guess) is ~750 dollars used now, so people are kinda stuck paying flagship prices even for that. People don't have a choice if they need to buy.

Was thinking the same. Back in 00's and 10's I often told people that the price of a gaming PC is offset by the added utility and longevity, but with graphics cards costing what they cost I may return to consoles. Realistically I don't have the money for either, tho.

u/ShitItsReverseFlash 7d ago

Well don't be the dingus who can't settle for a high end card that isn't overpriced. There are plenty of graphics cards available that can run all modern games on high and cost half as much as the new, overpriced GPUs

16

u/businessbusinessman 7d ago

You looked recently?

Even older GPU's are selling for more than twice of what they're worth. It's still "cheap" compared to the insane prices something like a 3080 is going for, but no where near what they're really worth should the market ever stabilize.

Your best bet right now is either buying a prebuilt, spending a lot of time trying to snag one when it's in stock at a normal retailer, or just waiting it out.

I realize you're /s The eye can't focus on more than that, but it can perceive a much higher frame rate and smoothness.

Take for instance a propeller on an airplane. Now as each blade passes in front of where you're focusing you can focus on the blade at roughly 30rpm. But does it disappear after exceeding 30 rpm? No... It becomes smoother. Almost buttery. Like my 160fps that I want to have, but can't because of damn bots!

I bought a switch and BotW last week.

I can't believe I waited so long. It is, hands down, the best Zelda game ever made and easily one of the most interesting maps to explore. Because of the map itself and the way you can move around it I'm enjoying exploring the world more than the Witcher 3 or Red Dead. Between shield surfing, gliding, horses and those sand seals, just moving across the map is a joy. I'm constantly wanting to know what's beyond the next ridge. What's at the base of the mountain on the horizon?

Nothing has so wholly captured my imagination and attention this well in years.

I mean it's been since the original Mass Effect that I got so engaged in a world. It's been a long time.

I've been doing my absolute best to avoid any spoilers and playing through completely blind. I made the mistake of going to the BotW subreddit when I found the NE Labyrinth, just to see someone excitedly saying "Look at this crazy Labyrinth I found!" and it was a different Labyrinth.

u/DrEmilioLazardo 7d ago

I broke down and saved some money during quarantine to buy a switch and BotW. If you already have a switch, buy BotW the minute you can.

It's not just the best Zelda game ever made, it's one of the best games of all time.

Nothing has given me the sense of exploration, adventure and freedom that BotW has given me. And I mean nothing. You can choose who you fight, kind of like Dark Souls, but the aggro range is much shorter. So if you want to spend some time just exploring and messing around without fighting at all it's possible.

Anyway, I bought it last Wednesday and it's already one of my top 10 games of all time. It's amazing.

That was likely the design idea. Making it all prominent makes people want to display it. Except, it’s pretty ugly because it doesn’t fit in. The series X was designed so you don’t have to feel embarrassed having that in your living room. Also, I personally like it’s minimalist design a lot more.

Yeah same I’m not a teenager and the series x fits right into my IKEA living room. The ps5 I want to hide.

This really shows just how fucking big the ps5 is like holy.

Makes me think they did it so it would be easier to inevitably release a slim model with good cooling.

yeah but I think it's not if they will make a slim model it's when they will make a slim model.

When I got it I was like, DAMN THIS PS5 IS HUGE

u/PoolNoodleJedi 7d ago

What is funny is that when I got the PS5 I was like “Oh this is smaller than I thought it would be with the fuss everyone is making about the size.”

I’m actually more impressed with how compact the Xbox is, it is insanely powerful and basically just 2.5 Xbox One S’s stacked on top of each other, but not as deep.

u/MetaMythical 7d ago

I actually really like the XBSX design. Just wish the games I would ever purchase a console for would make an appearance there (Demon's Souls, Horizon 2, GoW2, FFXVI, etc).

As a PlayStation fanboy, why the fuck didn't they just make the PS5 a black monolith like the Xbox. Sure, it's not exactly pleasing to look at but compared to the PS5 it's not an eyesore.

My series x is on top of my console and I don’t even notice it because it’s so bland. That is exactly what you want. It attracts no attention.

u/PillowManExtreme 7d ago

I don't know why Sony is trying to make the PS5 a centerpiece of a room. I just want a console compact and basic enough to lodge into a cabinet, where I only want to look at it because I'm stuffing a disc into it. I don't want to look at it every time I enter a room!

Wow, I knew the PS5 was big, but this comparison made me realize that when I finally get a PS5, I really have to rearrange my TV stand big time in order to make room for it - or most likely get a new one

How did you defeat the scalpers???

u/david_bagguetta 7d ago

I paid £2 for an app that told me when stock was in, after about 12 attempts at I thought it was a waste of time but then one day I just got lucky. Websites implementing capture seems to help significantly.

Nice! Which one do you play most often?

17

u/david_bagguetta 7d ago

It’s been the series x most recently as I managed to get one of them first, game pass is such a fantastic service it’s good at holding your attention and quick resume is a great idea. The PS5 is brand new today, and it’s my week off, so I’m sure I can catch it up :)

u/CreateorWither 7d ago

Nice. I love game pass too and managed to get an x on pre. I'll be grabbing a ps5 as soon as I can too.

I've just accepted I'm probably not going to be able to get a new console until next year or something. As soon as more become available for sale, the bots buy them all up. It's awful.
