I had the Palit RTX 3080 wishlisted on wootware and I just bought headphones one the site and the price popped up as R17999 for the Palit RTX 3080
I think you should get the Zotac even if its a bit more expensive. The Palit's RTX 3080 cooling solution looks weak and rather lightweight.
Zotac one has a bit more meat to it and looks a better option imo.

I am now interested about the 3070 performance over a 2080ti and how far the 3080 is ahead of it.

Then going to make my decision

If our price here in SA goes at 17k max this will sell out in minutes , newegg auto restocking from their many warehouses as the hype is crazy at current.

I really like the Zotac AIB cards this year.
They are my fave, followed by GBT

If you have a friend that will lend you a ps5, he is a good friend :D
I hope they re-release GOW on PS5. (Wish they would just release on PC, i am busy with horizon zero dawn, and it is great on PC)

I hope that HZD being released on PC sets a precedent for the PS game devs, as HZD sold amazingly well on PC after all.
I would love to play GoW on pc instead (though I would still use a controller)

Agreed, even if they release it a year later, i am still perfectly happy with that.

I seriously can't wait to game on a 3080. I've got Horizon Zero Dawn, Death Stranding, Red Dead Redemption and Outer Worlds all waiting for the new card.
