I don't think it will fit, even if you use 32Bit PCI to PCIe 1x riser, and a 1x to 16x slot.

2017: Basement full of ancient PC stuff, starting to go through it. 2021: Still starting, heh, many setbacks. So what's this BitWrangler guy's deal ??? >>> Taming the pile, specs to target?

Not if you have to pay king's ransom like $1,000 or more for that 3080ti. Very asburd. I don't endorse this inflated prices. I'm waiting for that to come down later down the road.

Cheers,

Great Northern aka Canada.

$1199 is msrp and same price that the rtx 2080 ti was at launch. That’s when the 1k+ flagships began. Not defending them but it’s been going on for a few years now.

Yeah it's ridiculous *side-eyes a laptop that cost $5k list in '88 when $5k bought a car, well a bottom end econobox but new wheels.*

I imagine everyone reading these are general computer enthusiasts for these modern tangents.

I do like the reference design a lot… but we’re about to strip this baby bare and slap on some water blocks!

That's a nice water block on that one. Are you going to sell it?

Love the acrylic and copper look. It is worth a good amount and never seen over 45c. Strange a card this old is worth selling in this climate. I also noticed water blocks are sold out… sheesh.

If you’re reading this in the future we are in the middle of a global pandemic. Logistics and materials are a problem causing massive price increases.
