    It's not necessary, but cleaning out old drivers from time to time is generally a good idea.

    I generally dont have to bother for GPU tho because I only install the absolute bare minimum files from Nvidia drivers (Driver, control panel, PhsyX, and HD Audio, nothing else).

    If you dont know, you can extract the Nvidia driver exe and then remove folders for what you don't want installed. Even if you're unticking everything and install just drivers, Nvidia is still throwing some unneeded background processes in there.

    Edit : Like so

    Also, not sure of your personal usage but overclocking does play a factor in any decision to upgrade the psu or not. If you don't then it's all good.

    Also, make sure to PM me for shipping details for the 1080. Otherwise your new 1080 TI will not work.

    There's a thread on reddit about it from a few months ago, I'll dig around and see if I can find it.

    Can't find the thread, but found the relevant picture. Obviously if use things like a Shield controller or Optimus you'd leave that stuff, but you can remove a lot of bloat from Nvidia drivers.

    haha, sending a 1080 out to the US will cost a dumb amount of money

    actually i did think about repurposing it; if laptop external gpus will be a thing soon, it's not a bad idea to to appoint the 1080 to be a laptop gpu lol. bit of a waste i'm sure. that's also if i buy a laptop.



    also, the reason i am in this predicament is that FFXV PC announcement. All those "1080 ti" in the promotion pic of the main characters kinda made me think "hmmmmm"

    You know that disease where magazines target people's insecurities and make them buy things? I think I got hit by that lol.

    I'll come to my senses and recover soon of course. i'm sure the 1080 can play it fine at 3440x1440 and the highest setting -1, or -2

    if you have some old hardware lying around, you could put it into a basic config, install linux and have it as a mining rig as well.
    I have started gathering the pieces for a threadripper and am planning to leave the 980Ti I have now in with the old hardware, take out the water cooling for my old 3970x and leave it air cooled and just have it mine for something or the other, probably ethereum, I have barely started playing with it,but figure since I have all the hardware, a little extra shiney won't hurt, rather than just throw it away.
    (I started tinkering, but I still haven't got all the wallet stuff figured out, as far as I can tell, I have a wallet (offline) and an address, and as long as the address is valid, transactional data will be stored in the chain, regardless of the wallets on- or offline status, so the miner can run alone).

    My closest Micro Center has VisionTek refurb 280x's for $90. I bought a pair planning to resell as the cheapest on Amazon was at the time $240 and Ebay was a steady $150. If they sell on Amazon great, but I'm most likely going to take my Z97 board and plop a G3220 I have laying around in it and mine.

    Well, need to buy a roof so 1080 TI is on hold. Decided to reuse my case and just run what I have while finally getting to use the R7 1700X that's been on the shelf for about six weeks now. New motherboard and AM4 bracket for the cooler coming in tomorrow. Really excited to run benchmarks to compare it to my 4690K build.

    Just got a new 34" Acer curved monitor. Screen is great, I'm using the display port adapter and sound is coming out of the monitor but not the speakers I was using before this. Anyway to have it use both?

    No, two different devices so pick one. Your speakers are probably better than the monitors, also easier to adjust.

    Just ordered my last part for a super budget Pentium G4560 build. This is all Zetanio's fault for posting that Asus motherboard for $32. All parts brand new and prices are what I paid. Only cpu and hdd were bought from Micro Center. I'm super excited to build this and test it.
