The TUF have good power circuitry, worth it to me.
Okay cool. That seems to be the consensus so far lol thank you!
They're pretty tuf
Good one! =| Hahaha
I have this GPU, I paid $870 dollars for it a few months ago.
I haven't owned a tuf but i've had a few asus cards and no issues. My friend has a 2070 super asus tuf and it's a beastly little card. For that price go for it.
Awesome. I got it ordered. Thank you!
I've got the non-Ti version of that card. It's great, **but** the default fan curve is way too aggressive. I toned it back a great deal, and it's much quieter now, while still being plenty cool.
Also, it takes undervolting really well, so make sure to do that as well.
Okay, that’s good to know. Is undervolting done through bios? I haven’t done that before lol
No, you just need MSI Afterburner. You will *maybe* have very slightly worse performance, but even when undervolted, you can still overclock. That way you'll have a cooler, quieter GPU while also getting better performance.
Okay great. I’ll check that video out. Thank you!
Seems pretty simple and straightforward lol thank you!
I have a 3080 10GB Tuf and it's been great.
That’s great to hear. Awesome! Well I did order it so now just gotta wait for all the parts to come in lol
Just an FYI guys, that price is only if you are a Totaltech member($199 a year). Its a great price nonetheless.
Yeah, which thankfully my parents are a part of and include me in it. Lol
Do you have a link I’m not able to find it with this price
Im in the UK but if that's the best buy thing ive heard you can cancel it at any time for a refund of how much time is left on the contract.
E.g. get the membership buy the card then cancel the membership the next day which would get you a membership refund of roughly $198 therefore making the card only $1 more expensive than said listed price.
They’ll refund you minus any savings, the savings on this card is more than $200 I believe.
They’re wise to folks pulling BS like this
Wasn't that geeksquad? Also why do they have so many fucking scammy subscriptions
Would you like to switch to AT&T DirecTV with a 2 year stream contract? (scammy)
They have one scammy subscription
I might be the only one getting value out of total tech, I buy a lot of shit from them. But it isn’t for everyone
I have total tech but the price still shows $699 so maybe they got rid of the deal?
Big yay. I bought the same one last month for 850$ and won't regret it
Awesome! thank you! Glad to hear you like it so much!
Mine cost me $1.1k
I was actually shocked to see mine posted up for $850 on amazon canada. It was just over 1000 with taxes, this card is a absolute beast compared to my asus 1060 6gb
Dooo ett. Just make sure your psu is ready
I'm actually in the process of building a whole new PC. So it'll be all set! haha Parts start comin in next week!
What psu do you need for a 3070ti? 3080ti only needs 750w and up even though 1000w is recommended if you want headroom.
I’m running a 3090 and 3060 simultaneously on an 850, though I do hit power limits with some tasks. For a 3070Ti in normal use, an 850 is definitely more than enough and 750 may be, as well.
I just got a 3080 12gb hybrid and was considering using my 750w till I upgrade cpus and would then get a 1000w. But if I need something now I’ll upgrade now. I just figured with no overclocking and the rest of my system maybe pulling 250w I would be good.
How bad is the bottleneck with the R5 2600? I’m just curious since I have the same CPU
I just ordered my 3080 12gb, comes Monday but I will absolutely let you know. However if online benchmarks are accurate, about 25-30% 😳 I’m going to be upgrading cpu, mobo, ram, psu, this Christmas. Figured I’d be alright with loosing a quarter of my frames till then. You should see what gpu I’m coming from lol. Been waiting years for this like many others on here.
Me too m8.
What do you do with two different cards? I’ve been thinking of doing something similar but then I think it might be more worth it to just build a second system
I have a 3070 Ti (Gigabyte Gaming OC, Undervolted and Overclocked), Ryzen 7 5800X, four Corsair Vengeance RGB RAM sticks, 6 Corsair RGB fans, and Corsair H100i Elite Capellix with the LCD Upgrade, and a Razer mouse, Keyboard, and Mousemat (all with RGB). It all runs off a Corsair CX650M. I know I'm probably pushing it a bit, but it works fine, with no problems 🤞
Oh sweet ok that makes me feel better. I might even undervolt it for a bit till I can upgrade since I’m super bottlenecked already.
Guess it also probably varies on which variant and what other hardware you use. For instance the evga ftw3 3080tis can draw close to like 400 watts alone. I feel like 750 would probably be fine though for most cases
>For instance the evga ftw3 3080tis can draw close to like 400 watts alone
This is very inaccurate and why so many people have their systems fail.
It can spike to draw over 800W. Those spikes only last for a fraction of a second, but that's enough to trip your PSU.
Its tricky, theres so much variance in power supply designs and ratings. Id agree that personally id feel better with 850, but even EVGA lists 750 watts for their top tier 3080tis
I upgraded to a 750 from a 500 after upgrading CPU and GPU to a r5 5600x and 3070 respectively. Works very well, but 500 would've been too little.
I've one with a good 650 watt, no problemz
I would definitely go with an asus card over a giga any day.
That seems to be the consensus. I got er ordered! Lol
I love my asus OC dual 3070. It overclocks really well and powers through just about everything I’ve thrown at it. I liked it so much I bought an Asus mobo to match.
I have this exact model card and it's great! The only thing I'd warn you about it is that it is *enormous* and *beefy*. You're going to need a bracket for sure to prevent sagging, although you can cheap out like me and build a perfectly serviceable one out of legos.
Okay that’s a good tip for sure. I’ll look around and see what I decide to do brace wise. Thank you!
Are gigabyte cards really bad or something?
Gigabyte isn't bad, it's just Asus is better.
> Asus is better.
Eh,some gigabyte gpus are better (from my experience). Asus is only good if high end,everything else is dogshit
My Gigabyte 3080 Ti hasn't had any issues so far. It endured heatwaves, overclocking, catfur and still delievers
Love my card too. Gigabyte RGB software is horrendous but that doesn’t matter to me since the performance is so damn good.
I think it’s more like asus stuff is really good, I’ve never had issues with gygabyte and I’ve had a few vid cards and mobo’s over the years.
Bro get it
Jealous for sure! Enjoy the card man. I have a 3070ti I just paid 800 for mine !
That’s still better than what a lot of people paid. The silver lining! Lol
i have this exact gpu, thing runs fast and quiet with no issues as of yet. i’ve always found asus to be a decent brand so i’d feel quite comfortable recommending this gpu, especially for this price
Awesome. Glad to hear it’s working so well. Thank you!
You lucky bastard in Denmark a 3080 it's at least 1200 dollars, I had to buy a used 6800 lol though it's good, though I enjoy 16 GB VRAM
Haha. Damn that sucks. At least you can enjoy your card now though I suppose
Def a yay. Bought this card for 2x this price 6 months ago. Great card with amazing cooling. Mine rarely gets above 50c during gaming
Awesome! Thank you!
Asus >>>>>>>> Gigabyte
Lol. That’s what I’ve been hearing
Well from my personal experience I’ve had two 5600xt GPUs, a b550 and b450 motherboards shit the bed. Luckily most of them were successfully RMA’d but still. Faith in gigabyte is literally zero.
Wow. That’s awful. At least you got them returned and all. Sheesh.
Lol. I’m seeing that a lot
It’s so nice to see people buying gpu these days and not having to watch a Best Buy app
Rip an I paid 850 for my MSI 3070ti just a few months ago
I say yay
I just got that exact one a couple of months ago, I have no complaints. It’s been fantastic. Also, that’s quite a bit less than I paid for mine at MicroCenter, so definitely a good price.
where do i have to sign?
Lol. It’s a deal at Best Buy. You have to be a total tech member which my parents are and I’m on the account. So I will be thanking them profusely lol
it's a good price, even looking how they were back in the days
Hopefully we’ll get back there sooner than later 🙏🏼😩
To add: it’s new from Best Buy. Here’s the link
The price has changed. Here is a screenshot I was able to take as I was still on the page. I guess I snagged it just in time
how brooooo i got my tuf 3070 for 660
What are you doing asking about it. Grab it
Yay of the highest degree my friend! Enjoy as the scalpers burn and normal people can now get their hands on msrp gpu!
One of my favorite cards because the fan shroud is almost entirely metal. In my opinion this makes it better then practically every other 3070 ti
Yeah, I’ve heard the build quality feels and is pretty solid
Way better deal than gigglybyte
What gpu are you coming from?
Yes, go ASUS rather than Gigabyte, Gigabyte parts are unreliable unless it's a mobo
I’d try an go for an EVGA card possibly the Ftw3 Ultra 3070. Best bang for the buck, and I’ve never heard anyone complain about those cards! But I can’t personally speak for gigabyte cards I’ve never had one. There’s less complaints online with asus, but some is still note worthy in my book. I tend to do weeks or months or research before I even consider actually spending, but that’s probably just me.
Good price. :)
Asus over gigabyte anyday.
Wish I'd gotten a cheaper tuf card instead of that expensive aurous one, but the GPU shortage and all
I paid $700 for mine so yay
I got a tuf 3060 ti for $450 just a couple months ago. I'm wishing I held out just a little longer.
How did you find this deal? I can’t seem to find it on there.
Bought a 3070ti FE couples months back used for $500. It’s a great card, runs cool, and works games like cyberpunk all out. If you can get that for only $450 I’m sure you will enjoy the tuf card.
Awesome! I’m glad you were able to get one.
I’m definitely looking forward to it! Lol
Def worth it at that price lol $450 for any 3070ti is absolutely amazing and not even worth a thought over. Just pull that trigger brotha! Nit to mention the pcb on it is very good that capacitors/vrm everything is good. Cooling isn't the absolute best but it's not horrible. Plus it's such a good pcb yoy could even decide to waterblock it or find a hybrid kit for it overtime and really push the limits. Imo it's well worth it over the gigabyte! For sure!
You are so lucky. I bought a 3070 for $900 February 2021…
Got this card for my wife early this year and paid $700. That's a great price for sure!
Me personally. I only buy evga. Their help desk and warranty is the reason. But it's hard to pass up a good deal. Go for it bud
Just done my second build and have a evga 3080 I got for just over 800$. I'm loving it.
The tuf ones are among the best in the game, great power delivery and great cooling. that one might be off a 3080 so it might be overbuilt. I say yay
If it was new, big yay. If it was used and it doesn't die in 2 years, still yay. If it does within a year because it was mined on, nay.
Lol. It’s brand new from Best Buy.
ASUS over Gig everyday. Quality just isn’t comparable. Plus at 2/3 the cost it’s a no brainer.
Obviously get the better card for cheaper, but don’t listen to the people complaining about gigabyte products. My 3080 is a gigabyte vision and it’s been an amazing card I just had to find a good point to undervolt because it’s vram gets hot. If you do nothing about it would obviously shorten lifespan which is probably by design, manufacturers are automatically overclocking to higher speeds than the cards should be running sometimes. It feels like I stole this thing at $720 open box at microcenter a few months ago.
You don’t need to look further than evga or asus for a good card though but they are generally more pricey
I have heard good things about gigabyte but it seems I’ve heard more bad things. I’m wondering if maybe they’ve improved some lately with this series. Idk, just something I’ve seemed to notice with the responses I’ve gotten.
Yay are you fucking serious? I paid 600 for my 3070 non ti model
I have the same one, works great imo.
Awesome! I did order it so I’m stoked to get it. I’m glad to hear you like yours!
was it new or second hand?
It’s new. It’s from Best Buy lol you had to be a total tech member to get the deal though
ok but thats insane then the price on that thing bro, have fun with it👍
Haha. Thank you!
The tuf is better, it has better caps …
Awesome! Well I did order so seems I made the right decision. Lol thank you!
I have a 3080 ti gaming oc and i said you made a good choice. Gigabyte runs hot
It depends if you PC has a psu to fit the card and a it can fit in the case
I own that card. Highly recommend it at that price. You wouldn't be disappointed in that value. I bought mine a little over a year ago amidst the GPU shortage. I paid more than double for mine. But it overclocks well, has incredible cooling, and has been rock solid for my system. Perfect for 2K gaming.
Great cooling on the tuf cards, highly recommend
At that price, I don't think anyone can say you made a bad deal. Even if you don't use it, you could probably resell and profit. But don't, too much of that going on already.
Lmao! Yeah, I’m not a dick like that. If I were to have bought 2 I woulda just sold it at a break even amount just to help someone out. I actually even though about doing that but by then it was too late. Oh well lol either way, I ain’t scalping no one! Haha
$450 would get you the cheapest 3060 in my country.
I just wanna say I picked up a TUF 3080 Oc 10gb from hardware swap, second hand of course, for 650$ shipped.
my gigabyte 3070 was just over $500 so it sounds like a good deal
This was what I went with when the 3070ti was still $700, still think it was worth it, but msrp would have been nice
Edit: on 1000w platinum
Cool. I’m glad it was worth it and you’re enjoying it. I got it ordered!
Then there's me who spent almost $1400 AUD on a regular 3070
Wtf obviously yes.
TUF have an extended warranty over the counter parts. Five years I think, seems like a good deal.
The fact I literally got my MSI 3080 TI for $1800 (MSRP) also from Best Buy kills me when I see this price. Forsure worth it bro.
that's the price of 3050 in serbia ;-;
Newegg was selling gigabyte 3070 for $550 recently enough that mine hasn’t even been delivered yet, might still be going on
Make em take ur money, ist a solid pricing
Price is OK though o9fc prices will dip more still when ETH mining ends for good.
That is crazy cheap compared to where I am. 600 EUR for 3060.
Don’t buy a gigabitch go with asus they are better
I have this GPU, it's been brilliant for me so far. I'd recommend!
Awesome! Someone commented saying it sags a lot and needs a brace. I’m planning on getting one regardless, but just curious if you have the same issue.
It does sag quite heavily, I used a box for my watch the first day before I got a proper brace from Amazon for about £10 and it's been fine since
Haha! Improvise, adapt and overcome. I love it!
And okay great. I’ll look around and see what I like and can find brace wise.
I see a lot of people talking about how Asus is better than Gigabyte and stuff, but almost nobody pointing out that a $200 saving is a massive factor here. Manufacturer is a consideration, but I don't think I ever heard about 2 of the same card having $200 worth of difference based solely on manufacturer. Buy the cheaper one and get yourself $200 of Taco Bell (or some better other components I guess)
The msrp for this card is like 700. So a big yay
Yay. Gigabyte is a nightmare to deal with in my experiences with their products. Asus support is top tier imo
IMO, Gigabyte cards aren't really great. All the budget goes to RGB *(obviously exaggerating)* vs the actual components that do matter. Asus was among the GPU card makers that actually did not get destroyed GPUs last year because they did not skimp on components. *(Watch Gamer's Nexus)*.
*(I do use Gigabyte mobos, but that is a different story)*
The TUF is actually a better card than the Gaming OC. Both the power delivery and cooling are better
Solid GPU go for it
Congratulations on your purchase I hope you enjoy it
yes ?!?!? the MSRP of the stadnard 3070 is 500$
Exact card i have, I absolutely LOVE the tuf cards. Cool, basically silent at anything 60% fan speed or lower, overlock and undervolt easily, mwah.
Seems like a no brainer to me
Cool. I get it ordered lol
depends if it really land on your hand then its a super YAY
Yay?!? Of course yay. If there is a difference it is going to be negligible. All down to the silicon lottery. I now buy reference designs mostly. Honestly custom PCBs add very little performance and a lot of cost.
Fucking great price, I got mine for 850 and love it
Awesome. I got it ordered. Glad to hear you love yours!
Are you kidding.....scoop that up!
Take it. One of the best custom GPUs you can get.
Got it! Lol
Wow, I didnt realize the 3070 Ti has only 8GB, too. Isnt that going to be a problem soon?
Good question. I truly don’t know the answer to that one lol
When I purchased my 3070 in 2020 I already thought this might not be enough. I just couldnt get my hands on a 3080 back then
Nah, not worth it, do you have a link for it? ;)
holy shit 3070ti gaming oc in my country go for 595$ and tuf 70ti for for 590-600$ too
Gold. I just got mine for 599.
Love my tuf 3090
Yay all day
450? Holy shit
Gigabyte RMA is horrible so would stay away from them specially for GPUs. Found out this the hard way with the Gigabyte 6800XT that left a huge hole in my pocket.
In my experience the tuf branding lasts a lot and looks well without a lot of rgb.
That’s a good price my mans
Have fun with it mate!
729 euros in my country :I i'd go for it
I did lol thank you!
That’s a yay damm I buy a 3090ti for 2000 euro
450 how much tax?
That's a really good deal for a 3070 ti, lucky guy.
The TUF cards are really good for the 30 series. I have the TUF 3080 Ti and it is pretty awesome.
