Interesting to see a post as I was just thinking of this thread. I upgraded the card to the RTX 3090 Founders Edition and its stunning on the dell monitor. The ray tracing is gorgeous on games that implement t it well and games are buttery smooth now. I’m very happy with this purchase.

I could dredge up a ton of info on what this actually is instead of just plainly asking how you've been making out with it?

This was the wildcard in your build knowing less were made for consumer purchase in the first place, i.e. less tested on consumer platforms. Also 2TB is a lot of memory that might not be steady under all uses. Dare I ask if you routinely run CrystalDisk Info to ascertain stability over time.

I’ve had zero issues and because of that have not run any diagnostics. I also have fiddled with OC but am not doing any of that currently.

I will say the 5xxx series do look tempting but I’m already shredding anything I do on this PC so I don’t see the need to replace the 3900x anytime soon. The big upgrade would be gaming at 4K but my monitor is only 60hz and I never see anything less than 60 fps as is - except during a load screen.

I really like having 144hz refresh rate... seems better, especially for games.

I’m sure it’s fantastic and 120+ is on my radar down the road. I don’t see any monitors that really wow me at the moment and since production is still priority, the 38” dell will remain. I am still extremely happy with that purchase.
