    This seemed a like a good idea at the time of posting. Please try to hold off posting in here until (perhaps that should be if) it becomes a poll.

    Now, we all know Humbug is not allowed the full fat GPU, so he has to have the next tier down (or lower - remember the 7870 glory years).


    Poll Options

    • RX 6800
    • The next RNDA2 GPU Below the RX 6800??
    • RTX 3070
    • RTX 3060 TI
    • HD 7870 (Lol)
    Your vote matters! (apparently)

    Disclaimer - Please note, Humbug is obligated to buy whatever GPU is chosen, stock permitting. :p

    Lol. Awesome :D

    Was too funny, he kept saying he was very happy with his choice to buy the 5700xt and it was a very good card etc etc. Then suddenly sells it and gets a nvidia card. Lol. As if AMD do not sell any cards with decent coolers.

    Then after all that he went on to attack my choice of card. Haha.

    Well, A little bird has told me he's going Intel next week so I feel the Intel IGP should be on the poll as a choice ;)

    If coming from the 2070 Super then go for the fastest you can, so in this instance the 6800.

    I guess it depends on what you're using it for though outside games. I'm a bit out of touch concerning how Radeons fare when it comes to a wide range of software applications.
