Thursday my 3080 finally arrived.
As you can see on the picture below, the new card is way bigger than my old one.

And it did not fit as the radiator and fans of my watercooler was in the way. And the radiator did not fit on the top. But I wanted to try my new card. So I came up wit this:

At least now I could try the new card, but I needed a new case. Which got delivered yesterday (Friday).
So here is how the pc looks now :)

And I can say, I am really happy with the results and also how the new card is performing.
FYI, playing warzone on 1440p with 144 fps and it's also capped to 144 :)
Before I was playing warzone on 1440p with 80 fps.

impressive but way above my pay grade well done Shadowfax but does it improve the gameing :excited:
For me it did improve the gaming @waffey73
And yes, the card was expensive for me as well (never paid that much for a card). And if I wanted I could sell it for a profit as well, but that's not going to happen. Unless someone offers ridiculous money for it of course.Needing a new case was not what I hoped for though.

My rig is now 10 years old this year, i had to replace the graphics card and i am in the process of buying a SSD Drive for my games. .As i have retired and have moved the money is being used for garden and decoration----ho Hum never mind just getting to old to understand the modern fast games and the hardware that goes with them.
