Community Article Who were NVIDIA targeting?|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Graphics Cards Who were NVIDIA targeting?|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Lateral Rockville ✭ December 2020 in Graphics Cards So we've probably all wondered by now why NVIDIA is selling such good performance for such a low price with the 3060 Ti. Well here's the answer. According to sales research, most people who used to own RTX 2060/Ss and new builders are the people who are buying them the most other than scalpers and crypto-miners. This show's that NVIDIA is actually struggling a bit because of AMD's recent cards so they were desperate to sell and they made it very affordable. Leaked prices before the brought them out was $449.99. Not $399.99, like they are. So these are the people they were targeting, budget builders. I hope this mini article was informational to ya'll.

But if you’re new to the PC builder space, worried about building your own rig, or just looking to save a little money, a prebuilt creator PC might be the right choice. Prebuilt PCs are functionally identical to custom PCs, just without the hassle of picking parts and putting the whole thing together. Going prebuilt can save time, money, and energy and still get your exactly what you need for whatever you may be creating.  Of course, before buying a computer, it’s important to know what you’re looking to get and what tasks you will use it for. Some computers may be better suited for music production, others for graphic design, so make sure you know what you'll be doing on your PC. So, let's go through the things that you consider before picking up a new PC. Why Should I Go With A Prebuilt PC? When purchasing a creator PC, you'll have to choose between a custom-built and a prebuilt PC. Both types of PCs are great for creators in any field, but a prebuilt creator PC offers a few quality-of-life improvements that custom-built PCs can't. Perfect for All Skill Levels Prebuilt PCs are perfect for all levels of creators. Whether someone is a beginner or advanced creator, a well-selected prebuilt PC can fill all their needs. If you're an entry-level creator, going prebuilt will all but guarantee that it's going to perform perfectly, and you don't have to worry about compatibility or underpowering a custom PC. Assembling a custom PC can be daunting, even demanding. With a prebuilt PC, you won't need to worry whether or not you applied enough thermal paste. Just plug it in and get to work! Top-Of-The-Line Performance Ready-made PCs for creators are powerful machines. They're built with consideration for creators and are ready to do a lot of heavy lifting. These PCs include the perfect mix of hardware, ensuring a smooth frame rate and high-definition resolution. Prebuilts are designed and built by professionals, ensuring all components work smoothly together so you don't have to spend time tinkering with settings. Reduce Hassles and Save Time Assembling a computer is fun (and something we love to talk about LINK TK), but it can be challenging. A person should have significant expertise and time to gather resources and hardware. Furthermore, they need to do advanced research to choose the best components for their computer. These include the motherboard, RAM, and Graphics Card. Prebuilt PCs remove all the hassle of compatibility and construction and turn it into a plug-and-play experience. Perfect for the busy creator! Things to Consider While Buying a Prebuilt PC Here are some essential components of a computer that a creator should consider while purchasing a prebuilt PC: Processor (CPU) The processor is essentially the brain of the computer. The CPU performs logic, basic arithmetic, and input and output operations. Moreover, the CPU instructs multiple processes and applications to perform tasks. The better the processor: the faster the operations. Faster prebuilt computers will increase the efficiency and productivity of the creators using them. What to look for in a CPU: Creators shouldn't settle for less than a four-core processor. Look for Intel Core i5s, AMD Ryzen 5s and beyond. Graphics Card (GPU) The graphics card is a super important component for a creator. A GPU is a different processor that handles visual data such as graphics of high-resolution clips for video editing projects. Creators such as music producers, video editors, graphics designers, or streamers require high-end graphic cards. What to look for in a GPU: Anything in the NVIDIA GeForce or AMD RADEON line of graphics cards, though more intensive programs will perform better with higher-end cards. If you need power, the minimum you should look for is an NVIDIA GeForce 3070 Ti or AMD RADEON 6700 XT. Memory (RAM) Memory or RAM defines how fast the computer will process the data. Without enough RAM, installing high-precision video and photo editing software is not possible. However, increasing the RAM will enhance the performance of creators’ PC. What to look for in RAM: At least 16GB of RAM. Anything less and you'll be bottlenecking your PC while working, resulting in, at best, lower efficiency and, at worst, regular crashes. Storage All of that creating doesn't amount to much if you can't save it. Be sure you pick up a PC with enough space for everything you plan on doing with it. If you're looking for speed, you should look for PCs with SSDs. M.2 SSDs are even faster. If you're more concerned with storage capacity, HDDs are way bigger for way cheaper. What to look for in storage: If you're creating, you should look for at least 500GB in storage space. Otherwise you risk running out of space for your projects.   Best Prebuilt PC Options for Creators De MSI Aegis RS 11TG-222US Video editing PC for streamers, gamers, and video producers Specifications  •    CPU: Intel Core™ i7-11700K 8C/16T 3.6-4.9 GHz 16MB Cache •    Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3060 Ti 8GB GDDR6X •    RAM: 16GB DDR4 3000Mhz (8GB x 2) •    Storage: 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD and 1TB 3.5" 7200 RPM HDD The Aegis RS video editing PC is a fantastic prebuilt PC for creators and gamers as well.

There are a few prebuilt PCs that restrict upgrades for one reason or another, but most are upgradable - feel free to add new Graphics cards, SSDs, and even a new CPU cooler to your machine. In fact, it's fairly common for creators to add more storage space to their PCs as soon as they get them, just to be sure they have all the space they need for their projects.

And there is a lot of new tech being shown off. Some of it is super cool, with the potential to revolutionize industries. Others are a bit more niche and quirky, with responses ranging from "huh?" to "huh. Neat." Rather than making you sort through all that CES has to offer, we pulled out some of our favorite tech we've seen and given some quick thoughts about why we're so excited. HyperX's Cloud Alpha Wireless Gaming Headset What it is: a brand new wireless gaming headset with (up to) a 300-hour battery life. When it'll be available: around February. Why we're excited: 300 hours on a single charge. That is a seriously big deal from a company that is already producing stellar gaming headsets. For context, their Hyper X Cloud II Wireless headset has a battery life of around 30 hours. I've been a long-time fan of their Hyper X Cloud II wired headphones (though I'm currently using the SteelSeries Arctis Prime). They're incredibly comfortable with a fantastic detachable microphone. My biggest hold-out from going completely wireless was the charge requirement - I'm terrible at remembering to plug things in. But with 300 hours of usage off a single charge? Sign me up for a pair of the Cloud Alphas. Sony Playstation VR2 and Playstation VR2 Sense controller What it is: the next generation of Playstation VR for the PS5 When it'll be available: unannounced Why we're excited: Playstations original VR headset was a big deal for the VR space. Not only was it commercially available, but it was also playable without a high-end PC, and it played well. The drawback was the controllers, hold-overs from the Playstation 3 Move lineup, and surprisingly hard to come by for a while. The PSVR2 comes with the next generation of VR controllers, including haptic feedback and adaptive triggers similar to the ones found in the PS5 DualSense Wireless controllers. The headset itself is also getting a major upgrade, with 4K HDR OLED displays and 90/120Hz frame rates on top of controller and eye-tracking technology to make the VR experience even more seamless. Plus: Horizon: Call of the Mountain, a new VR game in the Horizon Zero Dawn universe. New Razer Blade 14, 15, and 17 Gaming Laptops What it is: super-thin gaming laptops When it'll be available: Q1 2022 Why we're excited: Gaming laptops can get big. More thin, easy-to-transport gaming laptops are always welcome, and the Razer Blades are just that. The Blade 14 is, as the name implies, a 14" gaming laptop stuffed with an AMD Ryzen 9 processor (from their new 6000 series), 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and either an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060, 3070 Ti, or 3080 Ti laptop GPU. The Blade 15 gets a bit bigger with a 15.6" display, an Intel 12th gen Core i7-12800H processor, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and either an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 or 3070 Ti laptop GPU. Lastly, but certainly not least, the Blade 17 has an incredible 17.3" display (with a QLED option!), an Intel 12th Gen i7-12800H processor, 16Gb of DDR5 RAM, and either an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 or 3070 Ti laptop GPU. In brief: three new slim and powerful gaming laptops from Razer. Three Stunning New Monitors from Samsung What it is: the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 (a curved 4k, 240Hz gaming monitor), the Smart Monitor M8 (an ultra-slim smart monitor), and the UHD Monitor S8 (a creator monitor with advanced color options) When it'll be available: 2022 Why we're excited: I can't imagine a single need not being met by one of these monitors. The Odyssey Neo G8 looks like an absolutely stunning gaming monitor with a massive 32" curved screen, 4k resolution, 240Hz refresh rate, and 1 ms response time, all built on Quantum Mini LEDs. This thing is going to be incredible to game on. The Smart Monitor M8 clocks in at only 11.4mm, making it one of the thinnest monitors out there. Yet, it still manages to cram a UHD panel as well as smart TV and productivity apps into that tiny space all the while balancing a SlimFit Cam on top. The UHD Monitor S8 comes in both 27" and 32" models and looks to be a game changer for creators. It delivers up to 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut on a UL verified Glare Free monitor. Lenovo ThinkPad Z What it is: a new iteration of the ThinkPad business laptop When it'll be available: Spring 2022 Why we're excited: The Lenovo ThinkPad has been a cornerstone of the laptop market for years. Offering consistently reliable designs, power, and utility, they've become a staple of both business and home-use laptops. The ThinkPad Z takes that idea and turns it up to 11. The ThinkPad Z series will be powered by AMD Ryzen PRO 6000 series processor with up to 32Gb of LPDDR5 RAM and 2TB of PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage. Both the 13.3" and 16.0" models utilize gorgeous OLED screens for fantastic visual fidelity. Add on the FHD webcam, and you have your office wherever you go. And don't worry, the mouse nub is still there. Those are our favorites so far, but CES has a few days yet to go. Keep an eye on the Community for more of our favorites!

Fry's is dead. I had a Fry's in a nice proximity to my house in an area that you can profit from. It is big, empty, highway adjacent, and is now vacant. Personally the demise of Fry's was life changing. So many days I would go by there and talk to the people, buy some new parts and help others figure out what they are describing. There are so many businesses and upper-middle class people. Quite frankly, Microcenter is strong where Fry's was weak. It would need a coat of paint in your color scheme and the Canadian Geese there can be annoying, but it is prime real-estate. I'm talking in the center of a business area. I can't get the knowledge or tech required from Walmart or Best Buy. Quite frankly, we need you MicroCenter, you're our only hope. 9820 Kincaid Dr, Fishers, IN 46037 Here is an aerial photo: https://i1.wp.com/www.wishtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/FRYS-ELECTRONINCS-FISHERS.jpg?fit=1920%2C1080&ssl=1 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin March 2021 Hello @Bobby_McJoe and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. We appreciate the desire for a Microcenter store to be in Indiana. Microcenter knows there are markets for a store in states such as Indiana, Florida, etc.; hopefully at some point there will be a new Microcenter store opened in Fisher or somewhere in Indiana. But until then, unfortunately the closest store we have to Indiana is our Sharonville, Ohio location. It's probably a 2 hour drive from Fisher. As a joke, look on the bright side, at least its not over 500 miles away for Fisher, IN. 😊 Anyway, we do hope to be in Indiana at some point in the future. Thanks for posting. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Bobby_McJoe ✭ March 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/29740#Comment_29740 Thank you for noticing. I really hope you can put a store here, partially because I think it would be a profitable move but mostly because a physical spot where I can see and inquire about an item is better. For example today I needed a RGB light something like this https://www.microcenter.com/product/511819/wyze-bulb that can be controlled through a Raspberry Pi-based smart home server or some other unique way. Websites can't provide it because it needs a conversation to figure out the best way. Kroger can't help since they are a grocery store, Meijer and Target only dabble in tech. Walmart might maybe have something, but it'll probably be in a big kit or they won't know anything other than "It's a lightbulb, it turns on and off until it doesn't turn on anymore then come back and get a new one." Thing is an LED like that isn't really supposed to die by the time I'm done with it. (~3 years in this case.) Menards, Home Depot or Lowe's might carry it but those folks work under the assumption the customer is the one that knows with absolute clarity what they are doing. They don't usually carry different brands because they really aren't electronics stores anyways. I looked up "Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060ti" on Walmart's website because Amazon is raising prices because of bots and miners (which I believe is completely their prerogative.) and do you know what I got? Nothing. They don't even acknowledge that thing exists. https://www.walmart.com/search/?facet=brand%3ANVIDIA&page=1&query=nvidia+geforce+rtx+3060+ti You guys will put at the very least 1 on the shelves for a reasonable, if not msrp price. I can sit out your door in the morning and run in to actually have a chance to buy a single card. The public schools in the area are recognized as some of the best in the region. There are lots of STEM people you can work with, many of which are students. If you decided to bring in some people the kids can go to a public school and get into their dream college very quickly. (Also, check out the area's demographics.) There are tons of people to work at this place and there is a whole lot of demand. Besides, having that big building empty is really not good for any parties involved and I would personally walk right into town hall, meet with the mayor and say that this is a good idea and he would be an idiot to let some other non-technology sales company move in. Besides, the city counsel has been loving bringing business here. (even with some tax incentives. In 2018 they snagged a well-known Swedish furniture company that I don't need to name.) I even talked to a person with an MBA and years of experience who said "Personally, it wouldn't effect me, but for you, Microcenter and the city It would be a great idea." I am going to leave it at this because I have run out of thoughts, and my free time is just about up. Just please, put it on a very short list for further expansion. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook magarity ✭ March 2021 I've been in several MC and they weren't nearly as huge as the Fry's I've been in, Retail space is heckalot expensive even still. So, MC is smarter in several ways compared to Fry's and thus still in business. It's kind of like people in my neighborhood keep campaigning to get Trader Joe to move in to a recently abandoned Safeway. TJ's is never even half that size, don't know what they're thinking. Not saying MC won't ever move to your area but I'm pretty confident they wouldn't take over such a large space as what you photo'd. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.3K All Categories 1.1K The Blog 43 What's Trending 170 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 17 3D Printers 12 Maker 20 PC Build Guides 100 Reviews & Buying Guides 40 Build Showcase 21 Contests 42 Past Contests 1.3K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 97 New Members 170 Consumer Tech 51 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 87 Software 4 Audio/Visual 17 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 27 3D Printing 60 Retro Arcade/Gaming 87 All Other Tech 1.4K Store Information and Policy 56 Off Topic 8 Community Ideas & Feedback 116 Your Completed Builds 2.8K Build-Your-Own PC 1.8K Help Choosing Parts 245 Graphics Cards 184 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 65 Cases and Power Supplies 21 Air and Liquid Cooling 17 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 13 All Other Parts 25 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

But where there’s a will, there’s a way – and we’re here to help. If you’re looking to build a good budget gaming PC, we’ve put together a build guide so you can get the most performance for your dollar. Our working budget for this gaming/creator PC build is $1,500, and our goal is to end up a machine that is capable of running the latest AAA games on high settings at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second (or even 1440p for many games if you have a Quad HD display). We’ve also included several different CPUs and GPUs that fit in our target price/performance range so you have some options to choose from. WPL BUILD - raymond d - approximate cost: $1240.95 How do I choose the right budget PC parts? The first consideration when choosing the right parts for any PC is compatibility. Obviously, you want to make sure everything goes together smoothly and boots up perfectly the first time you hit the power button. The ultimate PC building pleasure is to bask in the glow of the operating system installation screen after everything’s together, and not to find yourself stuck staring at an error message (or worse, a black screen that’s not telling you anything). Your PC build basically starts with the case, motherboard, and CPU. Graphics cards are widely compatible with most motherboards, but CPU slots are more specific. You might already know which graphics card you want (you likely have an idea, at least, if your priority for this build is playing video games), and while this is the most important component for a gaming PC, don’t treat your processor as an afterthought. CPU choice boils down to Intel or AMD. We’ll get to specific processor recommendations later, but once you’ve chosen one, you can then find an AMD motherboard or Intel motherboard with a CPU socket that’s compatible. We are sticking with ATX or microATX motherboards for this build, the most common and widely compatible with most cases, with a minimum of four RAM slots. The Gigabyte B560M DS3H microATX LGA1200 motherboard and Asus Prime B460M-A microATX LGA1200 motherboard are suitable picks for Intel CPUs, while the ASRock B550M Pro4 AMD AM4 microATX motherboard and MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX microATX AM4 Motherboard are good for AMD CPUs. Just note that some motherboards may require a BIOS update for the newer Ryzen 5000 CPUs. You also need to make sure that the motherboard fits inside whatever computer case you’ve chosen. ATX mid-tower is the most common for good reason: It’s a nice sweet spot between size and ease of building. These cases usually offer good room to work in and allow for proper cable management. The Corsair iCUE 220T RGB mid-tower case (in white or black) is a good example, but really any of the ATX mid-towers are fine if they come from a reputable brand. If you do decide to go with something smaller, an ATX mini tower is also a good alternative. The Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L is one such ATX mini tower that can fit full-size GPUs and offers good cable management. For your power supply, the general rule of thumb is to have twice the wattage that your complete system draws once assembled and running under load. 80+ Bronze certified PSUs are plenty efficient for a modest or entry-level gaming PC, but you can spring for better if your budget allows. The EVGA SuperNova G3 650-watt 80+ Gold ATX Modular PSU, Corsair CXM 650-watt 80+ Bronze semi-modular ATX PSU, and EVGA 650BQ 650-watt 80+ Bronze ATX semi-modular PSU are all fine choices that deliver 650 watts of juice – more than enough for our needs. These are either fully or semi-modular as well, allowing you to remove some unneeded cables to reduce case clutter a bit. Finally, a word on cooling: Don’t overthink it. CPUs typically come with a stock cooler which is good enough unless you’re overclocking, in which case you might want to upgrade to a better CPU fan. For this build, we’re staying stock. Cases often come with two or three fans as well, but you should consider adding a couple more. The most common sizes are 120mm and 140mm. Check and see which size your case uses (some use both) before you spring for these. Water cooling kits, also known as all-in-one or “AIO” coolers, are beyond the scope of this budget gaming PC build. 5600x/3060ti - Majd S - Approximate cost: $1264.93 What parts should I use in a budget gaming PC? The basic parts checklist for any PC build includes a case, motherboard, cooling apparatus, processor/CPU, memory/RAM, storage (either a hard drive or solid-state drive), and power supply. For a gaming computer, you’ll need to add a discrete graphics card/GPU to the mix. Your GPU is really the only thing that makes a “gaming PC” from any other desktop computer, although gamers also tend to favor snappier RAM and more advanced cooling setups to keep things running smoothly. The graphics card and processor are the heart and brain of your computer, and even for our modest budget gaming PC, these two components are going to be the biggest purchases. Your CPU and GPU choices are also arguably the two most important decisions you’ll make during the pre-build planning process. As stated in the intro, we’re going to lay out a few CPU/GPU options for you to choose from. This should make it easier to plan your build depending on what stock is available to you. Even for a budget gaming PC, you’ll want to stick with at least an 11th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU or a current-gen AMD Ryzen 5 CPU. Depending on which graphics card you pair your processor with, you might be able to go with a Core i7 or Ryzen 7 CPU instead, but don’t spend too much of your budget on your processor only to have to go with a cheaper GPU than you want. The performance bottleneck for an entry-level gaming PC is going to be the graphics card, not the processor, so your GPU selection takes priority. Intel recently released its 12th-generation Core Alder Lake CPUs, but the 11th-gen Tiger Lake and Rocket Lake processors are still plenty capable. You can determine a Core CPU’s generation by the first two digits of its model number; for instance, an Intel Core i5-11400 CPU is 11th-gen, while the Intel Core i5-12400 is a 12th-gen model. Either of these two particular examples are great picks for a budget gaming PC. AMD Ryzen CPU is a bit trickier at first glance, but once you know it, it’s just as easy: Currently in their third generation, the Ryzen (or simply “Zen”) processors include the Ryzen 5 5600X; the Ryzen 7 5800, 5800X, and 5800X3D; and the Ryzen 9 5900, 5900X, and 5950X. The Ryzen 7 and 9 CPUs fall in the enthusiast-grade price bracket, so if you favor AMD over Intel, then the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X and AMD Ryzen 5 5600G are perfect for this loadout and deliver a lot of bang for your buck. Your GPU is going to be the most expensive single component and one you don’t want to skimp on. For this setup, we’re going with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti or the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT which are ideal for 1080p or 1440p gaming. You can also go for the GeForce RTX 3060 or Radeon RX 6600 if you want something a bit more budget-friendly, but these are still perfectly able to handle modern games at 1080p/60fps. For this build, avoid mini or single-fan versions of cards that are designed to fit into small ITX cases. Dual-fan GPUs will run cooler and more quietly. What memory and storage to put inside your budget gaming PC is an easier choice, thankfully. We recommend two sticks of 8GB DDR4 (so 16GB dual-channel) with a minimum speed of 3,200Mhz and a CAS latency of 16 or lower for this setup. The Crucial Ballistix Gaming DDR4-3200 RAM and G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-3200 RAM kits both fit the bill perfectly. For your primary storage, stick with a solid-state drive. They’re faster than traditional platter-based hard drives – in other words, better for loading and running games and other software – and aren’t prohibitively expensive anymore. A 500GB SSD is our recommended minimum, but 1TB is arguably the sweet spot between price and size. M.2 NVME SSDs have faster read/write speeds than 2.5-inch SSDs but are costlier. RAM and storage are both very easy to upgrade. Once you’ve got a shortlist of parts you want to use, you can plug them into the Custom PC Builder to check compatibility, see what’s available to you, and create a blueprint for your build. Pippin - Jonelle F - approximate cost: $1208.92 Who would this PC be good for? This budget gaming PC is good for almost anything you’d need a computer for short of playing the latest AAA games at 4K on “ultra” settings. The only fundamental difference between a gaming computer and any other computer is a discrete GPU, the vital component that does the heavy lifting when it comes to demanding graphical tasks like playing video games. A gaming desktop isn’t only useful for gamers, however. Even a budget gaming PC still has the same basic hardware that any other computer has – a CPU, RAM, a hard drive, etc. – and is perfectly suitable for basic work tasks, browsing the web, photo editing, streaming videos, and so on. In other words, everyday activities for which you’d use any other non-gaming PC. Having a dedicated graphics card is also a boon for anybody doing intense graphics-heavy work aside from gaming, like streaming and video editing. Tasks such as rendering high-definition videos will go faster while also keeping your computer running more smoothly as the GPU does more of the work instead of having your CPU bear all the stress of a job that it might not be built to handle. If you’re a streamer and/or content creator, even a budget gaming PC will help you work more efficiently than a system without a discrete video card.

We've got you covered with two builds, one AMD and one Intel, designed to make the most of the new graphics card.                                                                                                                                                                            Photo: NVIDIA AMD NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Build For AMD, we'll be putting together a sleek black minimalist build, focused on power over flash. Processor: Ryzen 5 5600X We're aiming for the sweet spot with the Ryzen 5 5600X. It'll be more than enough processing power for your average usage, with a sizable chunk to spare, without breaking the bank. Motherboard: ASUS x570 TUF Gaming If you're building with an RTX 3060 the day it comes out, you're going to have a bit of an easier time making the most of the card with an AMD build. The RTX 3060 can make use of a PCIe 4.0 slot, and doing so gives it an extra bit of oomph. And, while Intel is starting to put out PCIe 4.0 motherboards, AMD has been making use of them for a bit now. Add on to that the minimal black aesthetic that we're looking for with this build, and you have a winning motherboard. Graphics Card: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 TUF Gaming Overclocked Triple-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Obviously, we'll be going with one of the new GeForce RTX 3060s, but the ASUS TUF version has the synergy with our x570 TUF motherboard we're looking for, as well as that simple black coloring to match the rest of the build. But, this also has RGB, letting you draw attention to your gorgeous new graphics card while bathing the rest of your all-black build in soft, rainbow light. RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 16 gigs of RAM is more than most users will ever need, but with only two sticks to get us there, you'll have plenty of room to expand. Plus, the aesthetic of the RAM will blend in perfectly with the build. Hard Drives: WD Black SN 750 500GB M.2 (For OS) and Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD (For everything else) Hard drives might not be the flashiest part of a PC build, but with a WD Black M.2 for your OS (with room to spare), your computer will be up and running in the blink of an eye. Add on an extra terabyte of space with Samsung's 860 EVO in a 2.5" form factor and you've got all the space you need, running at lightning speeds. Power Supply: Corsair CX650M 650 Watt 80+ Bronze ATX Semi-Modular Power Supply If we want to put together something sleek and clean, we need good cable management. Enter the semi-modular power supply. Use the cables you need, put the rest back in the box. Case: Lian Li 205 Tempered Glass ATX Lian Li makes nothing but gorgeous, sleek cases, and the 205 is no exception. With no RGB on-board, the only glow will be from your brand new 3060, lighting up the 205 through its tempered glass window, showcasing a clean powerhouse of a build. The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=bb8da1ad-6dd2-4bff-8443-5d8de9f0c20f Intel NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Build For our Intel build, we'll be putting something together with a lot of flash and RGB, wrapped up in a clean white aesthetic. Processor: Intel Core i5-10600K Much like the AMD build, the i5-10600k hits the sweet spot of having enough power to handle daily tasks and gaming with ease without breaking the bank. Motherboard: ASUS Z590-P Prime Intel LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard Getting the most out of an Intel build is a bit trickier, but there are a few recently-released motherboards that can still get you that PCIe 4.0 slot that will allow you to make the most out of your new RTX 3060. Plus the silver trim on the board sets up what is going to be an incredibly clean and colorful build. Graphics Card: Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Vision Overclocked Triple-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 not only makes full use of the PCIe 4.0 slots in our ASUS Z590-P motherboard, but the silver plating matches the silver trim as well. Add on to that even more RGB to really drive home those bright multi-colored lights in a light backdrop, and you've got a winning card. RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 White Two sticks of 8GM DD4-3200, more than enough for daily use with the ability to add more if you need it. But the choice for this ram comes from the white color and on-RAM RGB lighting to keep with the color theme while adding more lights to your build. Hard Drives: WD Black SN 750 500GB M.2 (For OS) and Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD (For everything else) Same reasons as the AMD build: they might not be the flashiest part of a PC build, but with a WD Black M.2 for your OS (with room to spare), your computer will be up and running in the blink of an eye. Add on an extra terabyte of space with Samsung's 860 EVO in a 2.5" form factor and you've got all the space you need, running at lightning speeds. Power Supply: Corsair RM850x 850 Watt 80+ Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply 850 Watts with an 80+ Gold rating, this power supply is ready to handle everything you can throw at it, and look invisible doing it thanks to fully modular cables, meaning you only use what you absolutely have to. Less cables = less cable management = cleaner looking PC. Plus, the white paint job will help your PSU blend right into your case. Case: Lian Li Liancool II Tempered Glass eATX Mesh Mid Tower Computer Case - White Lian Li makes its second appearance with another, totally different case. This white case features swing panels on both sides for easy access, a basement for cable storage, and glass panels so everyone can gasp at your pure white, RGB-filled build. Oh, and the case also has RGB. Bonus - Heat Sink: Red Dragon CC2011 CPU Cooler, Slim Design RGB LED White Heat Sink Fan Not a necessary part for the build, but definitely necessary to pull the whole aesthetic together. Forgo the stock fan that comes with your Intel i5-10600k in favor of one with more power and more RGB. White radiator with an RGB fan? A perfect finishing touch.

Leave them in the comments! Or, if you build either of these, we want to see them over on our Build Showcase! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Benzoxazine ✭ February 2021 Why go with an X570? You'll only see at most 1-2% difference in performance. I would have gone with a B450/X470 build. Shave off $70 there. If you choose the appropriate MB, you can do resizable bar even with 400 series AM4 MBs. Both the video cards you listed at way over MSRP at approx. $500 at the time of this post (which is important!). Go with the EVGA XC model instead to save $110. So now we have $200 to save or to invest in other parts. So we could upgrade the CPU to a 5600X and save money still! Changing to this CPU will affect the performance significantly more than having a better MB or different GPU model. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJOP ✭ March 2021 I returned my 5600x, B550 F-ROG, RAM and ROG power supply when it was obvious I wasn't completing a build anytime soon. Nice hypotheticals you have here. I'm forced into prebuilts. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 2021 Hey @Benzoxazine I can't be 100% certain of the reason SeanM made his choices here, but I have a fairly good guess. If the board manufacturer has listed that B450/X470 is compatible with the 5600X, then you definitely could do that. However, it would require at least a BIOS update. The ASUS x570 TUF Gaming is quite an economical option for the X570 series especially if you're looking to upgrade your storage down the line. After all, these are just recommendations and you could definitely mix and match compatible parts to better suit your theme or your budget. @JJOP Sorry to hear that you wouldn't be able to complete your build quickly. There is a global shortage of several essential parts to complete a PC right now. We're doing our best to get as many as possible as quickly as possible!

We’re going to be taking a look at how it performs and offer some in-game benchmarks that you can use as a comparison and better help you make a clear choice as to whether or not you should be upgrading your GPU.  For these benchmarks, we’re using the same base system that we used in our review of the GeForce RTX 3070 - the Maingear Vybe 2, but with a GeForce RTX 3060. The Vybe 2 has an AMD Ryzen 3900X and 32GB of 3200MHz DDR4 memory. We chose a system with a lot of headroom on the CPU and RAM to avoid bottlenecks. Since NVIDIA has not released a reference version of the GeForce RTX 3060, we used the ASUS RTX 3060 TUF Gaming OC. We chose a few recent titles as well as some that were a bit older to show the performance across a variety of games that you may own or consider playing. As always, If you think of a game with a built-in benchmark that we should add to our list, let us know what you’d like to see in future discussions! Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 13.00ms | 1440p; 18.28ms | 4k; 39.10ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 10.63ms | 1440p; 15.91ms | 4k; 23.41ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 14.20ms | 1440p; 16.21ms | 4k; 39.95ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 7.65ms | 1440p; 9.30ms | 4k; 13.55ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 8.34ms | 1440p; 8.53ms | 4k; 16.31ms First impressions of the GeForce RTX 3060 are solid. The ASUS TUF OC model was extremely quiet; even under max load with high temperatures, it never exceeded 57 degrees Celsius. While the GeForce RTX 3060 is definitely not a graphics card with 4K gaming in mind, it can handle 1440p gaming in several titles. If you're gaming at 1080p, you're more than set to have a great time.

Feel free to use this thread for all things RTX 3060! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Neo ✭ February 2021 I wasn't able to buy a 3060 today despite Microcenter in MD having plenty in stock. I was told they gave out vouchers and that folks had all day to claim them. If the customer haven't picked them up by 6pm they should have sold them to people ready to pay. I won't shop at Microcenter for a while! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin February 2021 Hello @Neo and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. We're sorry you were unable to get a 3060 cards today. Those cards were in very high demand today with it being the release day. I'm sure there are a lot of other customers who are feeling the same way you. Unfortunately our stores only had a certain amount of 3060 vouchers and cards to sell. But there are still opportunities to get a 3060. The stores still continue to get GPUs and 3060 cards going forward. Since all GPUs right now are in high demand and there is a industry wide shortage, I'd recommend to visit the store first thing in the morning if you can for the next few days. Or choose a couple of days next week (ex., Tuesday & Wednesday), to see if the store is giving out vouchers for these cards. The vouchers are giving out on a first come first serve basis. If you have vacation time with your employer, take a few days off and show up to the store bright and early before they open with a chance to get a 3060 voucher. Just sharing some input on the best way to obtain a 3060 or any GPU cards at the moment from Microcenter. Good luck to you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJOP ✭ February 2021 Stop sounding like an everything is rosey shuckster. This GPU shortage is painful and there is nothing enjoyable about an item where demand so far outweighs supply, you might as well not even try to buy one. I went and stood in a ridiculous line this morning, knowing full well I had ZERO chance of getting one of these things. Once my obvious failure came to its fulfillment, I went and returned all the parts for my PC build. It isn't worth having parts when it's useless without a GPU. It feels like the damned Hunger Games... 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dieego_Sandoval20 ✭ February 2021 update more frequently the inventory on the website, because you go to the store and there is never anything... waste of time 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JemuzuTTV ✭ February 2021 You're selling to obvious Scalpers despite what you claim. Those of us with jobs and lives can't afford to camp out for hours in front of your stores every single morning till you randomly get stock in and we can be first. The only ones who can do that do not have jobs or are making their money off of scalping, tech reviewing (youtube), or make a full time living live streaming (twitch). I myself bought a 3070 from an obvious Scalper after 6 wasted trips in terrible snow and icey roads racing to my local Micro Center putting myself in danger to try to "get there first" only to be told each and every time that the ones still showing in inventory and physically on the shelves were "claimed". I couldn't even get the model I wanted so it looks insanely out of place in my all black/silver build with my now all WHITE gpu. The Scalper did provide a copy of the receipt for RMA purposes with his personal info excluded. The receipt is literally from the Sharonville Microcenter where I shop and was even dated on the last day I tried to race up there to get one, when I was told that despite 17 different branded 3070's showing in stock, I was not allowed to purchase one of them. It costed me $200 extra and disgusts me every time I look at the build now, because of what I went through, and because it does not match. I will ALWAYS feel that Microcenter should 1: Swap my GPU with the model I wanted (mine is even valued higher than the one I wanted) and 2: should be required to give me $200 in store credit for my terrible experience and for me proving that despite everything you claimed, you still sold to scalpers. I also feel that inventory should be added the night BEFORE the store opens (not upon delivery but the next day) so that EVERYONE, including those of us with jobs and responsibilities have a fair chance to camp out in front of the store KNOWING there will be stock and that if we made it early enough, camping out that day isn't a waste of our time. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook steelaw ✭ February 2021 I totally agree with you on having the stock in the night before.this way everyone can see what's in stock and get a fair chance at a card.so those that go to the store the night before to line up can actually see how many people are in line whether it's worth it or not to wait on how many people are there and how many cards are in stock I had to line up in front of the store 3 hours before it opened on a cold February morning and and they only had  3 6800xt stock I was lucky to get one because I was first in line.a lot of us have jobs and can't wait hours or days in a row in front of the stores just to get a good card. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook tfamaze ✭ February 2021 Jeez, some of you are a rather entitled bunch. If you don't like how microcenter is doing business, tell them then take your business elsewhere. They aren't obligated to give you the model you want or give you $200 to subsidize your decision to buy from a scalper. I will 100% agree with those of you arguing that their inventory system is almost archaic at best, but their anti-scalping system (for GPUs) is actually fairly good at least. You also certainly don't need to get there before they open to get a GPU. It is more about luck than anything. My friend got a 3070 at about 30 minutes before close when we just stumbled across it while going there for a 5600x. There was also a 3090 in stock at the time too. This was notably at the Sharonville Microcenter since that one was explicitly mentioned as being impossible to get cards. So yea... sucks you had a bad experience, but they have improved their system greatly, and it is almost delusional to think otherwise. The voucher system is an extremely welcome change from earlier systems especially with covid still being around. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook steelaw ✭ February 2021 It's not luck of the  draw there is only a limited supply so if you don't get to the store before it opens there's going to be none at all. I live in New York City a highly dense populated area and there were 30 people behind me trying to get video cards too and all the store had was three. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LookMaNoHands ✭ February 2021 Can Microcenter provide an online reservation system, similar to how video game companies offer? I also can't spend time outside a store, time is money.... specially during these unprecedented times. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJOP ✭ February 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/28566#Comment_28566 Please tell me where being frustrated with not being able to purchase something needed in order to actually function trying to do business at home is being rather "entitled"? Obviously Micro Center would rather they have the product in stock and actually sell the things. But this discussion thread is straight trash. Why not "discuss" it when people actually have them? Then we get to endure online trolls coming in and mislabeling a large group of people as entitled and then dance around the word delusional just adds to the frustration. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook tfamaze ✭ February 2021 edited February 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/28600#Comment_28600 I wouldn't say I am an online troll. I am a Microcenter customer who waited in line for over 12 hours at the original 3080 release with my friend (the one that recently got the 3070), and he was 1 person away from getting a card. At the time, there was no voucher system. No way to keep track of anything. Everyone just lined up outside the building in cold ass weather and not really caring about general covid care. From that point, Microcenter has improved their policies for this GREATLY in a way that is actually meaningful. I comment that it is delusional because at this point, it is essentially out of Microcenter's hands. They have implemented a system where you can only buy graphics cards once every 3 months enforced by requiring a valid form of identification along with a voucher system that limits covid exposure (when people actually realize how the system works) and requiring in-store purchase only. There is very little more they can do without starting to axe legitimate customers that would like to purchase cards. Microcenter has no way of knowing people's intentions with cards after purchase, and it would be ridiculous to even try to do so. With all of those points combined... yea, it definitely makes you seem entitled to make demands of them for not fixing(?) a situation that they have essentially done as much as they can do resolve. If you would like to blame someone, blame Nvidia, but realistically they aren't at fault either. They are producing GPUs much faster than they did for the 20 series which is likely where projected sales came from. In all actuality, the blame lies with mostly covid causing a massive silicon shortage, an ever increasing crypto currency price, and an increased interest in home office components and expendable income (also caused by covid). 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook WSmith ✭ February 2021 OK so I'm new to the LA area but there's a microcenter nearby. There's no way to get notified when an item will be in stock soon, right? Like, there's no way I can get an email the night before that the next morning vouchers or whatever will be available in-store. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin February 2021 edited February 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/28603#Comment_28603 There isn't unfortunately, we don't have anything like that in place. My understanding of the general process for a store receiving a shipment for these cards is that the turnover is extremely fast, they're not really getting advanced warning. It's basically a "we'll get some product in and we'll hope there's cards too." At the very least, we can't see from our end here what the stores might be getting in advance, the best way to get the most current or accurate information would be to visit your store if at all possible. You could also check our thread here, there may be some customers who have been at your local store recently who can give you an idea of what to expect: https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/4542/rtx-3000-series-micro-center-discussion-faq#latest 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJOP ✭ February 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/28603#Comment_28603 I would assume that what they list in stock online as fairly accurate. And you can check by store. But if you do it, anyone can. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJOP ✭ March 2021 Any shot of getting a GPU anytime soon? Doesn't look like it... 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook steelaw ✭ March 2021 Don't count on the website inventory either.its inaccurate.see my post here https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/7721/very-unhappy-customer#latest. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ZimEatsWaffles ✭ March 2021 edited March 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/28816#Comment_28816 yep.. happened to me on launch too, site said there were at least 20 rtx 3060s at my local store, which is an hour away, and the stock stayed pretty consistent for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Decided to take off from work, drove over, and the first thing the employee tells me is don't ever trust the online inventory, it's never right. They had sold out within the first minute because enough people lined up to wait. If there was only a way to contact the store to ask about stock.. would've saved me the trip. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJOP ✭ March 2021 Hey! Got any 3060s in stock yet? The big day was weeks ago... 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 2021 Hello @JJOP and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. With there being challenges for all local retailers to keep GPUs, including the 3060 stocked; its best to visit the store 1-2 hours before they open to have a chance to enter the store to inquiry about if there are 3060's in stock or ask if the store is expecting a inventory truck that day. If they are, hang out in the store until it comes in for a chance at a card. At this point to get a card or a 3060 from Microcenter, you have to beat the competition. You're up against other GPU costumers who are showing up at the store early and daily waiting for a chance to purchase a GPU from Microcenter. The other option would be to pay the premium for the card online from Amazon or Newegg. Online the 3060 12gb is going for about $300 more than what it is at Microcenter. Take a couple of days off from work and come down the store early this week to attempt to get a card. Good luck 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook brofromperu ✭ March 2021 Anyone here has any recommendation for what time to stop at the microcenter in either Cambridge MA or North Jersey NJ? Both about 2 hours from me so would like some idea on the time to arrive. Also does the website doesn't update stock if vouchers were given? Thanks guys 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin March 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/29309#Comment_29309 I am sorry, we do not have an ETA for re-stocking, these cards come in periodically to each of our stores. Information on vouchers and other info may be found at https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/7909/limited-availability-product-launch-faq#latest 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook brofromperu ✭ March 2021 I understand there is no ETA but what i'm trying to figure out let's say some people wait in line on hopes for one. Do I need to get there by 5am to be in the first group if any vouchers are given? if so i may have to look at an air bnb instead of waking up at 2am and drive to a store? you know what i mean? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook cbzeej ✭ March 2021 Is there a "community" list that's implemented at the Tustin location? Last I heard from the community there is that we have to show up before 6 am and "check-in". If you don't get a card that day, you have to come back at 9 pm later that night and " check-in" again and again at 6 am. Is this still happening? is it no longer a first-come-first-serve situation? Also, are people that are banned from getting vouchers still allowed to hire someone from TaskRabbit, or any other way, and have them purchase a card as well? I'm just trying to make sure I know what I'm looking at in order to purchase a card for my kid. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook spkay31 ✭ March 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/29309#Comment_29309 Second on this for the Cambridge MA store location. Interested in Ryzen 5600x CPU and Nvidia RTX 3000 or AMD RX 6000 cards. Since the drive is nearly an hour for me I would prefer to come on a day with a higher likelihood of being successful. Any info from others who may have had success in the AM would be appreciated! Cheers, -Scott 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook brofromperu ✭ March 2021 Quick question saw a few GPU available around 8am at the Cambridge store at around 9am said sold out. Store doesn't open until 10. Does it mean it was sold to whoever got a ticket/stayed in line? or just a mistake on the website? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 2021 Due to the way that vouchers are processed, the way that GPUs appear on the website may vary depending on how the store handles the process. In most cases and under normal circumstances if the inventory is changing before the store opens, it is due to the store performing inventory and correcting the current counts in-stock. I'd recommend visiting your local store to speak with an associate about this specific occurrence. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Eli1991 ✭ April 2021 what day is a regular day you guys get inventory trucks i was told Tuesday's is that the only days? trying to take another day off to try to grab a card. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 2021 @Eli1991 just chiming in. I wouldn't take a day off yet. If you don't work weekends, visit the store on your normal day off. A BYO salesman can tell you the best days to come to their store during the week early for a card. Every store is different, but usually its Tuesday through Saturday for inventory. Best to visit the store first on your normal day off, then plan from there. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Eli1991 ✭ April 2021 yeah I went Tuesday morning waited in line from around 5am to 8am then worker came out and said truck had mechanical issues and wouldn't make it in so I missed out that day but didn't get a chance to ask what days trucks come. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin April 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/30552#Comment_30552 We do not have an ETA / recommended day for re-stocking unfortunately.

SeanM admin January 4 edited January 4 in What's Trending Miss NVIDIA’s CES 2022 presentation? No worries – we’ve got everything you need to know right here. RTX in Review: The big focus for home computing this year was NVIDIA’s RTX program, covering everything from GeForce to Creators to Gaming. Let’s break that down: GeForce Now GeForce Now, NVIDIA's streaming service, is constantly expanding and growing. With 1100+ games (including, starting today, Battlefield 4 and Battlefield V!) NVIDIA is committed to making gaming possible no matter your system. Whether you're gaming on your phone, or just away from your main rig, GeForce now will stream you your games. Also announced, NVIDIA is working with TV manufacturers to launch GeForce Now on Samsung and LG TVs. If you're looking for even more power in your cloud gaming, the brand new RTX 3080 cloud streaming service offers 1440p, 120 FPS streaming on PC/Mac and 4k HDR on SHIELD TV. No more downloading massive games to your hard drive - launch from the cloud and play with peak performance now! New RTX GPU(s) While two new GPUs were revealed today, we only got a really good look at the brand new GeForce RTX 3050: The new GeForce RTX 3050 is scheduled for release on January 27th, starting at only $249. Featuring 8GB of DDRG6 RAM, the RTX 3050 is the new budget card from NVIDIA. With absolutely stellar performance over their past XX50 series cards and the first to support Ray Tracing, the 3050 is going to be the go-to for budget builds for a while to come. NVIDIA also officially announced the 3090 Ti today but didn't provide any in-depth information yet. As they said, tune in later this month for more information. What we do know is what it looks like: And some high-level features: 40 Shader Teraflops 78 RT Teraflops 320 Tensor Teraflops 24 GB of 21Gb/s DDRG6X memory Keep your eyes peeled on NVIDIA's Twitter for more, and we'll be sure to keep everyone posted as we learn more! New Laptops If you're looking to pick up a new gaming laptop soon, NVIDIA has good news for you with over 160 new laptops announced, featuring the new laptop-based GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti. These brand-new laptops will be coming in all manner of styles, including dual screens, easels, and convertibles, all powered by NVIDIA's 30 series GPUs. Keep an eye out, as these will be launching February 1st. And, if you're a creator, a new wave of NVIDIA Studio Laptops are also coming your way: And speaking of creator tools.... Powerful Tools NVIDIA Omniverse has officially left beta today, and offers a ton of fantastic features to creators, including simultaneous collaboration, no matter where you are. Rather than the traditional import-export-import cycle of most traditional 3D art projects, as you cycle between programs, NVIDIA Omniverse combines it all into a single platform, minimizing rendertimes and maximizing workflow. Plus, all this: The Future of Esports Monitors Lastly, we have this incredible new monitor from NVIDIA, which offers full 1440p resolutions and supports up to 360Hz at a whopping 27". If you'd rather stick with traditional 180p, however, it can quickly transition from the full 27" 1440p 360Hz monitor to a 25" 1080p monitor, so you can still maximize your frames, no matter the game. And that's it for NVIDIA at CES today! We've got another recap of AMD's presentation over here, and be sure to check back the rest of the week as we recap the biggest news from CES 2022! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Yingdong ✭ January 22 Are you going to have 3050 cards in stock on release day(January 27th)? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin January 25 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/39490#Comment_39490 It is expected that we will have a limited amount of cards on release, with more stock coming in when available. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Sadly, the pricing for partner cards is still under NDA, and I don't know the amount that they will cost. I would expect it to be similarly priced, but that is just a guestimate. I'm making this guess based on the cost of the 3090 and the listed price of the FE cards in the article above. Q) How much do the 3080 Ti & 3070 Ti video cards cost? A) Up-to-date pricing for our cards will be posted on the website once they’re available. As soon as we're able to share the price, we'll update our site with this information!

If we're able to get a concrete number ahead of launch we'll share that! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Justin_Exploring ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33105#Comment_33105 By any chance do you know if there will be stock (not expecting you to know quantities of any) of standard 3080s or 3090s on drop day tomorrow as well or just 3080Ti? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2021 @Justin_Exploring It's quite possible, but I can't say anything with 100% certainty. We've been getting fairly regular shipments of several GPUs from both NVIDIA and AMD at this point. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 Pricing being under NDA the day before the sale is ridiculous for the AIBs to be dictating. I would think Microcenter would have enough pull to demand a more reasonable NDA period. These AIBs are running things like the Wild West now and the consumers need somebody to stand up to them and say enough! If the AIBs are afraid to tell us how much they are going to charge then maybe they are gouging too much. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook rishiMukherjee ✭ June 2021 I bought a 3080 pre-build from micro center last weekend. Can I get the 3080 Ti instead and return 3080?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin June 2021 edited June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33111#Comment_33111 We can't return individual components out of pre-builts, however if the early reviews that are going up are anything to go buy, you're really not losing much performance anyway. The price increase of a 3080ti vs a 3080 is definitely not worth the minor performance increase in comparison. https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33109#Comment_33109 I think the NDAs are mostly dictated by NVIDIA, but I don't really know how that whole process works. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33111#Comment_33111 Unfortunately not. We are not able to take components that were sold in a pre-built unit as exchanges for upgrade components. If you are looking to upgrade the RTX 3080, you can definitely explore purchasing a 3080 Ti to perform that upgrade though I would strongly recommend waiting for benchmarks to see if the performance difference warrants the price of the upgrade. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HammerHead444 ✭ June 2021 What are the chances of getting a 3070ti off of best buy right after release? My mom was gonna let me use her credit card and I was gonna stay up and try and get one for the computer I just built from parts at micro center. I don’t think she or anyone else I know would be willing to spent the night in a car or tent outside of micro center. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33114#Comment_33114 I think you would have to be extremely lucky. One good thing for you to know is that I sent my friend to Microcenter a few minutes ago to scope it out. There are only 5 people in line right now. Maybe you can go at like 4AM or something and still get one when the 3070ti comes out next week. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TKPJr2009 ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 Will you'll be updating us on rather or not you'll will be selling Nvida founders edition RTX 3080ti  tomorrow and RTX 3070ti on June 10th .  I know you'll sold the founders edition RTX 3070 & RTX 3060ti when they released on Release day .

This morning they had 72 cards and I was #43 in line. I think going the afternoon before is a good target. Definitely don't expect to show up after Midnight and get a card. By Midnight there were more than 72 on the list. Also... the difference in price was big. The people at the end had to either pay $2,000 or leave. The first 40 or so paid $1,400 for almost the same quality card. I ended up paying 80 more because of my place in line but I can live with that. The less you care about the price the later you can go basically. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leesanction ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 Anyone care to tell me their experience going to Micro Center in Westburry Ny long Island for the 3080ti launch?

Can anybody share insight about how the launch was for the 3080ti? I would have to miss a half day of work to attempt to buy a card, but if they’re disorganized or anything like the Dallas location 3080ti launch I won’t even bother going there. You guys should YouTube it, I’m surprised people weren’t hurt. They should be doing it like the Ohio location, a list and constantly checking every hour or so to keep it fair and organized. Wow Dallas was the most unprofessional thing I have seen, looked like a scene in a movie. anybody with Houston insight I’d appreciate it thank you 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TheFamousChrisA ✭ June 2021 I am curious how much the 3070 Ti will be if they were upcharging the 3080 Ti to almost $2,000 for people later in line. I've never heard of places charging more the later in line you are, but if I need to get to the Weston, Illinois location store at 4pm the day before I am fine with that. If there is a voucher or a way to make sure they keep my place in line I can camp outside in a lawn chair or wait in my car for a full day. I have no clue if Best Buy is going to do a 3070 Ti in-store launch like they did the 3080 Ti (which sucks because they did it at a store in Madison where I live and I had no clue about it, though $1,200 for a GPU is still ridiculous when I don't need basically a 3090). Any insight into how much money to bring and what time to get there the day before? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 2021 edited June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33272#Comment_33272 I am sorry, we do not have pricing on yet to release items, and it will vary by model.

And if you're looking to pick one up, we've put together a build to help you get the most out of all the power the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti delivers! We've laid out a powerful build with as many white components as we could cram into it, creating a stylish powerhouse worthy of the GeForce 3080 Ti. Processor: Intel Core i9-11900k A flagship graphics card deserves a flagship processor and for our build, that's the i9-11900k. The 11900k is prepared to handle anything you throw at it, from high-end gaming to photo and video editing with power to spare. Alternate: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X - AMD's own 9 core processor, delivering comparable specs under the AMD brand. Note: the selected motherboard for this build is not compatible with an AMD processor. Motherboard: Gigabyte Z590 VISION G Intel LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard The Gigabyte Z590 VISION G is closer to a mid-range board than a high-end, but it oozes style. With a mashup of white, silver, and black coloring with a splash of blues and purples, the VISION G is our board for a stylish powerhouse. Plus, it comes equipped with four m.2 slots, multiple PCIe x16 slots, and HD audio. Alternate: ASUS X570-Pro Prime AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard - To complement the alternative AMD processor, we picked out a similarly stylish AMD motherboard, even adding in a splash of RGB. Graphics Card: Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti VISION Overclocked Triple-Fan 12GB GDDR6X PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card The pièce de résistance of our stylish powerhouse is, of course, the brand new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Specifically, Gigabyte's VISION edition which matches flawlessly with our motherboard. The brand new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti delivers 1.5x the speed of the last generation GPUs and brings with it incredible ray tracing technology and DLSS AI Rendering on top of everything else NVIDIA GPUs can do, including NVIDIA Broadcast, and NVIDIA Reflex. Processor Cooling: Corsair iCUE H510i ELITE CAPELLIX360mm RGB Water Cooling Kit - White Whether you're building with an i9 Intel or Ryzen 9 AMD, your processor is going to be giving off a lot of heat. And nothing beats a big water cooler to keep your temperatures low. The Corsair H510i is more than equipped to handle all the heat you can throw at it, and handle it in style with a white radiator and three RGB -infused fans. Alternate: NZXT Kraken Z73 360mm CPU Water Cooling Kit w/ LCD Display - Sure, it might not match the aesthetic of the build, but adding an LCD display onto the pump cap, allowing you to monitor temps just by glancing at your case. Or, you're favorite GIF if you're so inclined. RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 RAM 16GB might not seem like that much RAM for a powerhouse build, but it'll be plenty for most things you want to do with it, including gaming and video editing. But, if you do want more, you'll still have 2 available slots to cram in an additional 16GB of RAM. And did we mention the RGB? Alternate: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 RAM - Worried that 16GB of RAM isn't going to cut it? This'll double that to 32GB and leave space for an additional 32 more gigs of RAM to be added. Hard Drives: 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB - M.2 NVMe (For OS) and Samsung 870 EVO 2TB SSD SATA III & Seagate BarraCuda 4TB 5400 RPM SATA II HDD (For everything else) We're putting incremental hard drives in this monster. You've got your 1TB 970 EVO Plus M.2 NVMe drive for your OS as well as any other major-use programs, a 2TB 870 EVO SSD for your frequently played games, and a standard 4TB Seagate BarraCuda for every other thing you need on your computer. Tons of storage, ranging from blazing fast to just plain speedy. Alternative: Inland Platinum 4TB SSD M.2 NVMe - 4TB of blazing-fast storage, all on one single M.2 NVMe drive is stellar, but it comes at a price. Power Supply: Corsair RM750 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply 750 watts of power with an 80 Plus Gold rating means your new powerhouse will run smoothly and efficiently. But, perhaps more importantly, it's fully modular, meaning you won't have a bunch of extraneous cables getting in the way of all that glorious white and RGB. Alternate: Anything Modular - rather than pick out a specific power supply alternative, I'll just recommend anything with sufficient power and fully modular. Keep your case clean! Case: Lian Li Lancool II Tempered Glass eATX Full Tower Computer Case - White Ultimately, your case is up to you. We went with the White Liancool II Tempered Glass case for the aesthetic. Easy-open doors on both sides of the case, RGB strips in the front, and tons of room for your big AIO water cooler are exactly what we're looking for. Alternate: Whatever case that can fit your components! - Cases are perhaps the most subjective part of any PC build, taking into account both space and personal taste. So head to your local Micro Center, bring a tape measure, and check out our floor models!

We've put together a powerful and sleek build to help generate some inspiration for your own build.... or you can just use this one! (Image Courtesy: NVIDIA) Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Vermeer 3.8GHz 8-Core AM4 If you're building with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, you're going to want a processor to match that power, and AMD's Ryzen 7 5800 X is a stellar pairing. Delivering high-powered processing and overclocking potential without breaking the bank - just like the 3070 Ti. Alternate: Intel Core i7-11700K Rocket Lake - Intel's new i7 processor, offering comparable performance from a different company. Note: the selected motherboard for this build is not compatible with an Intel processor. Motherboard: ASUS B550M-PLUS (WiFi) TUF Gaming AMD AM4 microATX Motherboard The plot twist of our build: we're building a microATX PC! Offering all the power of a full-size rig, just shrunk down to a much smaller size. And with that in mind, we want to keep all our components to a minimum, so we made sure the ASUS B550M-PLUS has onboard WiFi, so if you're not hooked up via ethernet you can still access the internet without adding anything else to the build. Alternate: ASUS B560M-PLUS TUF Gaming WiFi Intel LGA 1200 microATX Motherboard - To complement the alternative Intel processor, we picked out an incredibly similar Intel motherboard. Graphics Card: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti TUF Gaming Overclocked Triple-Fan 8GB GDDR6X PCIe 4.0 The centerpiece of our build is, of course, the new ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, featuring stellar ray-tracing capabilities, solid 1440p, 144hz gaming performance, and NVIDIA's suite of gaming tools. The 3070 Ti delivers 1.5x the performance of the 2070 SUPER and 2x the frames that the 1070 Ti could deliver. In other words: it's the card for our build. Processor Cooling: NZXT Kraken M22 120mm RGB Water Cooling Kit Sure, you could go with a standard air cooler for your processor. But when you're building in a microATX case, space is a premium. Plus, you should really treat that fancy Ryzen 7 nice with a sweet AIO. Hence the NZXT Kraken M22. Featuring a single fan, it'll keep your processor cooler than a standard air cooler and take up less space in the process. Perfect for compact builds! RAM: Crucial Ballistix RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL16 Dual Channel 16GB of RAM is more than enough to handle pretty much anything you could put this little powerhouse through, but we've left two slots open if you decide you need to double your RAM to 32GB. And that splash of RGB will add a nice bit of style to the build. Alternate: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 RAM - Worried that 16GB of RAM isn't going to cut it? This'll double that to 32GB and leave space for an additional 32 more gigs of RAM to be added. Hard Drives: Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe Normally we recommend a hybrid of SSDs and HDDs for new builds, but with space such a premium in micro ATX builds, we're going pure M.2. The Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 NVMe will offer all the speed you could ever want in a hard drive, all in a sleek form factor that will fit snugly into your motherboard. Alternative: Inland Platinum 4TB SSD M.2 NVMe - 1TB not going to cut it? Shoot up to 4TB for even more game space! Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 GT 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply I always recommend modular power supplies - the ability to remove cables you don't need in your build is paramount to creating a clean and efficient build. And it's never more important than in a microATX build when space is so much more limited and errant cables can ruin your airflow. EVGA's SuperNOVA 750 GT delivers enough power with an 80 Plus Gold rating to keep your PC running efficiently and is fully modular to keep it clean. Alternate: Anything Modular - rather than pick out a specific power supply alternative, I'll just recommend anything with sufficient power and fully modular. Keep your case clean! Case: Corsair Crystal 280X RGB Tempered Glass microATX Mini-Tower MicroATX builds require a lot of research to ensure that all parts will fit into the case. For the build we've constructed here, the Corsair Crystal 280X is the case that will give us the space we need, with a little bit of breathing room for airflow and any adjustments that might need to be made. And RGB! Alternate: Whatever case that can fit your components! - Cases are perhaps the most subjective part of any PC build, taking into account both space and personal taste.

The title of the thread has the word "guide" in it, but the information provided in the subject matter is so minimal and what is provided is questionable at times. Let's look at a few examples of questionable information: If you're building with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, you're going to want a processor to match that power, and AMD's Ryzen 7 5800 X is a stellar pairing. Delivering high-powered processing and overclocking potential without breaking the bank - just like the 3070 Ti. Calling out the 5800X for its "overclocking potential" is like recommending a Honda Civic for its racing potential. Overclockers are going to be disappointed, as will drivers of Honda Civics (no matter the size of the spoilers and how short you cut the exhaust). While it is true Ryzen processors are unlocked and can technically be overclocked, their "overclocking potential" is actually quite limited. You are dealing with a hard 142W PPT limit on the socket and an added EDC current limit that cannot be bypassed on ambient cooling. Those looking to squeeze out extra performance on Ryzen CPU's would be better off undervolting and utilizing PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) and letting AMD's automatic tuning handle the rest with the added power overhead from the aforementioned undervolting. It seems silly to recommend a component for its "high-powered processing" and "overclocking potential" without actually explaining what makes the processor a great pick beyond marketing buzzwords. Features such as: Significantly higher cache sizes than their competition Higher cores/thread count at a lower price point Comparable IPC (Instructions Per Clock) performance in non-AVX instruction sets Just a few things that could easily be mentioned that realistically impact performance and would mean more on paper than just saying something along the lines of "it's fast and can overclock so we picked it". The centerpiece of our build is, of course, the new ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, featuring stellar ray-tracing capabilities, solid 1440p, 144hz gaming performance, and NVIDIA's suite of gaming tools. The 3070 Ti delivers 1.5x the performance of the 2070 SUPER and 2x the frames that the 1070 Ti could deliver. In other words: it's the card for our build. 1.5x the performance of the 2070 SUPER at what? This feels like someone saw a marketing slide from a first party (Nvidia) and rolled with it instead of actually providing examples of areas in which the RTX 3070 Ti outperforms the RTX 2070 Super by 1.5x. Are we talking pure rasterization, or are we talking Raytracing performance? Given the limited number of raytracing titles, it's extremely important to clarify this here. At the very least, use the words "up to" to cover yourself. Blanket statements like these lead to disappointment when reality sets in and it doesn't offer 1.5x the performance of the previous 2070 Super. https://www.pcmag.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3070-ti-founders-edition In the review above, you'll notice that while some games offer that 1.5x performance boost over the RTX 2070 Super FE, some (like Far Cry 5) only offered a 15% performance boost in 1080p performance. In fact, of all of the recent AAA games they tested across the 3 most common resolutions (1080p, 1440p, 4K), we only saw 4 instances of the 3070 Ti achieving that 1.5x performance boost over the 2070 super. Those games were Assassins Creed Odyssey at 4K, F1 2020 at 1440p and 4K, and Total War: Warhammer II at 4k. That's 4 instances out of 21 testing methodologies. Sadly, so few people benchmark the 1070 Ti so I can't really verify if the claims of "2x the performance" are true, but it would still be wise to include "up to" just to be safe... Sure, you could go with a standard air cooler for your processor. But when you're building in a microATX case, space is a premium. Plus, you should really treat that fancy Ryzen 7 nice with a sweet AIO. Hence the NZXT Kraken M22. Featuring a single fan, it'll keep your processor cooler than a standard air cooler and take up less space in the process. Perfect for compact builds! This might be the most questionable claim in this "guide". Water cooling is still bound to the same laws of thermodynamics as air cooling. It's not going sub-ambient. If you want to claim it's more efficient for heat exchange to use water cooling then sure, there might be some agreeance here, but to blanketly state that a 120mm AIO will out-perform standard air coolers? That's just misinformation with no evidence to back it up. The benefits of water over air is thermal mass, being able to handle a higher thermal load and resulting in a lower temperature as a result. A 120mm lacks this distinct advantage as the thermal mass is no greater than that of your typical air coolers... Breaking this one up is going to be a bit difficult for several reasons. The Kraken M22 is among one of the lowest performing 120mm AIO's. Maybe only really beating Cooler Master's pump designs. While the pump-in-rad design is interesting, it does not aid in providing better thermals. 120mm radiators lack the thermal mass to be considered objectively better than mid-range air coolers. For the asking price of $85, this AIO gets absolutely destroyed by high-end air coolers for just $4 more such as the Phanteks PH-TC14PE which can be found readily available for $90. Lower end air coolers such as the Noctua NH-U9S can be found for as low as $70, will fit in the chassis and can be outfitted with 2 RGB fans to meet the aesthetic of this build while offering comparable performance to the M22. Here it is with 2 fans beating Cooler Masters 240mm AIO and running only 6C hotter than Corsair's 240mm AIO: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/noctua-nh-d9l-and-nh-u9s-cpu-cooler-review,9.html (The CPU in this review was tested under a 114W thermal load, the 5800X averages a 95W thermal load) When factoring in thermal performance of coolers, one can't just weigh thermal transfer between air vs water, but also the thermal transfer between the CPU die to the IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader) and from the IHS to the CPU cooler. Ryzen's unique MCM (Multi-Chip Module) design has the CPU cores offset to a corner of the CPU substrate, meaning a water coolers jetplate and fin array won't be centered on the CPU cores, resulting in very inefficient cooling. We've seen this already with AIO's and custom water blocks not specifically designed for Ryzen's chiplet layout and the M22 is no exception. The claim that AIO's take up less space than air coolers is a bit subjective. They make air coolers that are designed to sit horizontally across the CPU socket rather than vertically. Notable examples would be the Cryorig C7, be quiet! Dark Rock TF and Noctua NH-L9a. These do not obstruct any DIMM slots or require any obstructive tubing to be visible while maintaining a low profile no thicker than a a 120mm AIO + fan combo. Seriously though, recommendations for thermal solutions shouldn't be taken lightly when giving people advice on systems, especially when one references "overclocking potential" earlier in the guide. That's just a recipe for disaster. RAM: Crucial Ballistix RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL16 Dual Channel 16GB of RAM is more than enough to handle pretty much anything you could put this little powerhouse through, but we've left two slots open if you decide you need to double your RAM to 32GB. And that splash of RGB will add a nice bit of style to the build. Alternate: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 RAM - Worried that 16GB of RAM isn't going to cut it? This'll double that to 32GB and leave space for an additional 32 more gigs of RAM to be added. I was impressed by the decision to choose 3600mhz memory for this review given how reliant AMD's Infinity Fabric is on memory speed, but I was disappointed to see the alternative recommendation deviate from this without explaining this loss in performance. There is zero mention of the compromise on frequency in exchange for capacity, nor any mention of the change from single rank to dual rank DIMM's and what that will do for memory training and manual overclocking should one choose to undertake that endeavor. We referenced the "overclocking potential" of the processor, and the memory controller is part of the processor after all. Dual rank DIMM's are harder to overclock, that is important to keep in mind. It's also important with Ryzen platforms in particular to be conscious of the memory IC's of the RAM you are recommending as some are far more compatible out of the box than others, especially true if one plans to overclock or populate all DIMM slots with dual rank DIMM's. There is also zero mentions of timings of any kind or the importance of lower latency memory in general. I guess I'd just like to see this fleshed out a bit more to explain the thought process behind why certain components such as the memory are recommended that extend beyond "I think this is more than you'll need, and also RGB!". That's just shallow on the surface and doesn't help me understand the thought process behind why I'd want these. Guides need less subjectivity and more objectivity, you feel me? Alternate: Anything Modular - rather than pick out a specific power supply alternative, I'll just recommend anything with sufficient power and fully modular. Keep your case clean! Come on... It's hard to view this as a "guide" yet completely gloss over how one should go about finding the right power supply. At least link to resources about how to find the right size PSU, whether it be from the over-estimates provided by Nvidia or another source of knowledge with facts to back up their claims. Anything is better than "Just go with something modular". What about looking for important features like OCP (Over-Current Protection), OVP (Over-Voltage Protection), UVLO (Under Voltage Lockout), Thermal Monitoring/Throttling & RCP (Reverse-Connection Protection) to name a few. Features of arguably the most important component in a system that will protect the other components in a system from failing in the event something goes awry. If someone is reading a build "guide" (I am assuming the target audience is people that need assistance with choosing parts), at least explain the different types of PSU form factors and which one is compatible with the chassis you recommended. The last thing you want is someone buying a Flex ATX PSU for an ATX chassis, that wouldn't end well. I think that covers most of my issues with this guide. If I had any more feedback to provide, it would be to make it less formulaic and less like a marketing ad for the components themselves. Lean in to the technical side and give the reader something to walk away with other than the same guide over & over recommending RGB after RGB for the sake of RGB. To me, this looks no different than the build "guides" posted daily on pcpartpicker or pcgamer. In fact, the structure and writing style is almost identical to the point where it's difficult to tell the content apart. What better way to differentiate yourself and demonstrate a unique identity by actually diving into the hardware and educating your audience while guiding them on the components to consider for their builds. 2 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

The cards come in each week but in a limited quantity.  Sometimes the store will get like 30 units and once 30 vouchers are passed out, the card are gone. The best way to get one of the cards is to visit the store multiple days a week, especially before it opens. So that you can at least have a change to get a 3060 or 3000 voucher.

For our test bench, we used the AMD Ryzen 5950X as our processor to ensure there were no GPU bottlenecks.  For RAM, we had 16GB of G.Skill RAM set to 3200MHz.  The model of the 3060 Ti we used was the ASUS Tuf 3060 Ti.  Everything was set on an open air test bench.  You can find the parts list for the test bench here. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin December 2020 edited December 2020 Benchmarks No changes were made to the 3060 Ti. We wanted to provide results akin to opening a box and putting the card into your system.  All games were set to their highest graphical settings, excluding motion blur.  We ran the benchmarks for the various games multiple times, and the data shown are the averages of all runs done.  Benchmarking was done using the MSI Afterburner benchmarking tool to log the information. GTA was a bizarre game to benchmark, encountering weird stutters during some of the benchmarking at 1080p and crashes randomly throughout 1080p and 1440p testing.  Ended up running this on DirectX10 rather than DirectX11 as 11 was causing a lot of the issues.  The 1080p 1% Low was consistently low throughout all the benchmarking.  The 1440p 1% Low had high variance, going from 6-55.4 FPS.  The most surprising part was the 4K benchmark, delivering consistent 80FPS for the 1% Low, and experienced no crashes or stutters.  One thing to note is the CPU Bottleneck at 1080p and 1440p, and 4k would be the recommended resolution to be aiming for.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 5.36ms | 1440p; 5.31ms | 4k; 7.25ms  Hitman 2 was a more standard benchmark with expected results based on previous benchmarks.  High framerates at all resolutions and still acceptable frame rate at 4k 60FPS.  The 1% Low for 1080p and 1440p is consistent with previous benchmarks. We attribute the similarity to the game engine.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 7.56ms | 1440p; 9.37ms | 4k; 17.01ms  Average FPS was excellent, which makes the 3060Ti great at all resolutions to use.  Seeing a consistent 1%, Low was weird and couldn’t reproduce this on another test bench with a different GPU.  This is great to ensure that, at the minimum, you see 60FPS.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 6.16ms | 1440p; 7.39ms | 4k; 10.51ms  Horizon Zero Dawn is the most standard of results for our benchmarks.  Lower resolution for more frames at both average and 1% Low.  Also, in the most demanding game that we benched, everything looked great at 1080p and 1440p.  This game did stutter a bit at 4K and probably would be pushing the limit at 4k 60FPS gaming.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 8.67ms | 1440p; 10.85ms | 4k; 18.89ms  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin December 2020 edited July 2021 Conclusions For MSRP $400, this graphics card is pretty good value.  Excelling at 1440p and is completely playable at 4K, this GPU will help usher in the 1440p resolution.  This is performing as expected, with just slightly worse performance than the 3070 for 100$ less, putting this card as one of the leaders at the Mid-Range price range.  Due to the low supply and the 3000 series GPUs' high demand, this card is a great fallback card if you cannot find the higher end cards.  If you are looking to get yourself a 3060 Ti or any other graphics card from us, please visit our Random Selection Process and FAQ for more information! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

RTX 3060TI ASUS TUFF GAMING  In my experience if people are typing it from the receipt, it's really easy to get the letters and numbers confused, e.g. L vs I or 0 vs O, etc... Please try redeeming it from your email copy by copy/pasting it and that most likely will get it working.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.3K All Categories 1.1K The Blog 43 What's Trending 170 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 17 3D Printers 12 Maker 20 PC Build Guides 100 Reviews & Buying Guides 40 Build Showcase 21 Contests 42 Past Contests 1.3K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 97 New Members 170 Consumer Tech 51 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 87 Software 4 Audio/Visual 17 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 27 3D Printing 60 Retro Arcade/Gaming 87 All Other Tech 1.4K Store Information and Policy 56 Off Topic 8 Community Ideas & Feedback 116 Your Completed Builds 2.8K Build-Your-Own PC 1.8K Help Choosing Parts 245 Graphics Cards 184 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 65 Cases and Power Supplies 21 Air and Liquid Cooling 17 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 13 All Other Parts 25 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Release time, vouchers, availability? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin February 2021 Hello @Six1YaDone and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. We have limited information available for the RTX3060. We do hope to have some available and our stores will be handing out vouchers on a first come first served basis, limited to only the stock they have on hand on launch day. Visit the store early before it opens, the store will share more information. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook maverick375 ✭ February 2021 Curious too, hard to judge when to need to be there especially with the storm tonight. OP, do you plan on showing up early? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 007onfire ✭ February 2021 edited February 2021 I plan on showing up early and hope the snow does not get too bad especially since I'm coming from the Springs. I heard somewhere that people just bring a chair to place in line then wait in their car, is this a valid way for holding your spot in line? Also, will there be other cards available besides the 3060? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin February 2021 @007onfire a chair is not a valid way and is NOT Microcenters recommend line process. But there needs to be a line for when the store opens for if there are large volumes of customers waiting to get into the store. So if customers outside the store are respectful with the chair approach, sure bring a chair to hold your spot. The store only cares that there is a respectful and cordial line upon opening for business. If the line does not meet this, they can choose to delay vouchers until the line meets these requirements. No information for if there will be any other GPUs, there may be some, but no guarantee there will be other cards. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Six1YaDone Denver ✭ February 2021 I am planning on showing up pretty early. I'm in the same boat though, not sure how early I should show up with the snow and all. I do plan to bring a chair, hand warmers ETC.

Then I read the rest! Too bad that data miners and re-sellers are snapping them up and using "bots" to buy them all up. First-come/first-served "seems" fair, until you live an hour away and there's 10" of new snow on the ground! With buyers suggesting coming in at 3am to wait inline, says. . "not worth it" for me." A lottery seems fair, but the re-sellers will load up the entries with multiple emails they've created. For re-sellers selling this series for thousands of $ on resale sites, gives one the reality of where this is all at. It was genuine for Nvidia to make this graphics chip in a way that was not "suited" for data miners, but they you get online and find tech advice how to make it suitable for date miners. wow 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook toohip ✭ February 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/28471#Comment_28471 wow, this is crazy at 3:12am!
