There are certain scripts that I like to run that favor two 3080's instead of one 3090 although the single 3090 has more VRAM. Just got a new ASUS ROG strix 3080Ti and I am really looking forward to putting it through its paces (and most likely going to be selling one of the 3080's).

just updated from a 15 yearold LCD 24'' screen to a 32'' 4k hdr one.

Very nice.

I also managed to find a rtx3060 in a real store, so ''''MSRP''''. Still, paying 715$cad (tx-in) for the low-med range 3000 series, still pissing me off.

Those are still going between 850-1000$ cad on fb market, so I get a '''''''fair''''''' price.


I paid 220$ iirc cad for my previous GTX960 4gb Strix, when prices were acceptable !

I have been using desktops only for last 15 years and I never had a need to own a laptop. My college and work luckily did not required one.
I am a desktop fan because of the performance, but mostly for its comfort.
Dedicated keyboard with mouse and 27inch screen is priceless.

Laptop for location work and tethered for shooting in the studio, when I'm going to read or watch something at the kitchen table etc.

I got my mom an iPad when she was in the hospital, so she could have facebook and email etc. I have ended up using the tablet more than she ever did. When just sitting on the couch I find it's super convenient, light weight, the right size, much nicer to manage than my bulky 15' laptop, easy to use and live with.

Desktop I like to build myself. Though it's not difficult I just take a small amount of satisfaction from using a rig I built myself. Also I can get exactly the parts/brands I want. Also it was a response to the bloatware family members had on their PCs. Though it didn't last I also moved over to Linux and didn't need a preloaded OS, so I decided I'd build my own desktop.
