4k res gaming is a stupid meme anyways, I don't feel sorry for you guys.
There's hardly any good reason for a video card to have 3GB V-RAM, let alone 4 or 6GB.
Games never become any better or more fun. They just pack everything full of textures containing a billion pixels for 4k meme lords and tax everybody else's hardware for no good reason.

And don't even get me started on VR.

I've spent $400 on a Lian Li case (twice, actually), and I think VR is f***ing stupid too. I think it's silly to care so much about gaming in 4K ultra settings. I've got a 4ktv, and 1080p doesn't bother me a bit. I care more about load times than graphics. Always have. My next rig will have a mid-range video card and a f***ing giant M.2/NVME/whatever drive to install my s*** on. Possibly 2. What pisses me off about video cards more than the ridiculous prices is the bloatware drivers that break s*** with every new version and the bulls*** favoritism developers have for one card manufacturer or the other with optimizations. I personally miss the days when video cards were about video memory and nothing more. The f***ing things try to do everything now, and I don't see any of them doing it well. Plus, the settings UIs always suck. And f*** gsync and freesync. As if video cards aren't divisive enough.

Show me a card from 5+ years ago that is capable of the same thing on current games.


750ti *yawn*


The same 750 Ti that can barely run games from 2+ years ago at sub 1080p while dialing the settings down to low-medium?

Low-medium, otherwise known as still better than console settings. But sure, tell us how amazing console gaming is because you had to buy a whole system (PS4 Pro, Xbox One X) just to experience fake 4k at s***ty settings.

Yeah man those settings are so much better they lack basic shadows and foliage detail of console versions.

I don't wanna see anyone homeless, but this bit coin thing needs to die before my gpu does. I think i saw my r9 380 worth 800 bucks on ebay at one point. The 1050ti on my other is grossly overpriced now too.

It does 1080p fine. Low-med settings are higher than console settings. Some console games go lower than the lowest setting on PC.

I bought my gaming laptop 3 years ago knowing it can ride out the console generation without additional purchases, so I'm flying right over this insane PC market unscathed.
Explain why MSI needs our laptops on top of the wholesale cost they're already get from us in their GT72(s)/GT80(s) trade in program? MSI isn't to be trusted!
