If you can swing $40 more, I'm seeing 1060 6GB models going for around the $300 mark.  I'm not a big fan of "Here's an option more expensive than what you wanted" but doubling your memory and a faster GPU would seem like the way to go for 15% more over $260 if you can make it happen.  Might be worth holding for a week or so and watching 1060 6GB prices, hoping to grab a deal.

Don't taunt me with Microcenter deals!  Oh, there's Newegg, too.  I think I'll just wait another couple of months and see if there's a better picture of when 1100's are coming out.  I don't think there will be another spike in GPU prices unless our esteemed President's trade wars play a role.

You might as well.  Then again, you only like about four games anyway so just look up benchmarks for those.

@Nitro

How many hours did you get out of the game?

About 5 hours. I really enjoyed the 1st win, but it never changed other than becoming harder, longer and more repetitive. I still had a bit of fun with it, since I love rouge lite games, but there are so many better ones. There was a good reason it bottomed out in price hard on consoles.

Got my razer vouchers in, 1 day after purchasing The Surge.

 

Did anyone find a decent use for the $10 razer hardware voucher?  Was going to use it on a $20 item then magically shipping added $10 right back

I guess I could use my zSilver to buy a $20 voucher but with my luck it's "one voucher per purchase".  Plus all that Razer stuff is so overpriced that even a $30 discount wouldn't be worth it unless the base price was $45.

The only "deal" that you can potentially get on the Razer store is on the Destiny 2 branded stuff if it comes with the emblem code.  I'm not sure how that works but there was a time people were selling the emblem codes on ebay for as much as the mouse costs.  Wasn't worth the hassle for me, but maybe it is for you.  

 

6GB or 8GB is the minimum I would do if I were to upgrade right now given the prices.  If everything was normal price and you could score a 3GB 1060 or 4GB 580 for less than $200 then I would say either would be fine for 1080p gaming for the next 2-3 years and you could always upgrade to newer tech for a similar price then.  Given the inflated pricing though, the value tends to be in the mid-high end stuff.  My 8GB 580 gives me a steady 30FPS on Ultra in Wildlands (I need to turn the settings down TBH) and like 40-60 in FC5.  I don't know if I'm hitting RAM limits there or it's just the card/architecture limiting me (more likely).

NewEgg Deal:
Destiny 2 PC retail box (with a Battle.Net code inside only) is $15 again on w/ Free Shipping and an e-mail code.

Side note:
Since it will have to be downloaded in full from B-Net, Destiny 2 PC (base-game) takes up almost 57GB of space.

No. I want a real Valve game. You know, the "core" type of games that they used to make.

I'd be totally up for a Valve-property based digital card game, so long it wasn't a CCG model. 
Bonus points if it actually makes trading cards relevant again, even if it's just by being able to "dust" them to turn them into cards in the new game.

Valve Employee: People keep saying we don't make single-player games anymore. How do we respond to that?

 

Gabe: What if we find a developer that's already working on a single-player game and buy them out? Would that make it a Valve game?

 

Valve Employee: I guess technically, but --

 

Gabe:  *Writes out check*

Why would I waste money on a 1080 when I play maybe two or three graphically demanding games per year... that can simply be played on not-ultra settings?

I bet if you didn't buy things like 1080s when they're new, it's possible to buy game consoles specifically for the couple of exclusives that show up on them. Or a whole lot of pizza that isn't Jack's.

Depends on if you can score an earth-shattering GTX 1080 deal. Doubt that'll happen though.

 

Also really depends on if you play the living hell out of those 2 to 3 graphically demanding games all the time & want to max 'em out. These are the kind of games that'll take over your life.. Most games, though, probably won't do that.

 

If you're aiming for a GTX 1080, you'd be doing it so you can run anything at 1440p 60fps and some games at 4K. Gonna depend per game on the 4K there though - if you're throwing it to the moon (Ultra) and/or if you want 30fps or 60fps (if you go for 60fps, might need to turn down a few things; check the benchmarks).

 

Do you have a 1440p or 4K monitor? Or plan to get one of those in the future rather soon?

 

EDIT:

Honestly, for you, doesn't sound like you plan to play lots of system-demanding games. You might be better off either with a 1060 6GB or just waiting for the 1100 series to come around w/ benchmarks to see how performance on those go. Depends on how soon you feel that you plan to make a GPU move.

I was hungry for Jack's (thanks Sweeney!) so I stopped by Kroger this morning.

 

They weren't on sale and the regular price was $4!!!!!!!
