Thought it was my MB giving trouble but fixed it, so bought a 3070 today and will see how my existing setup works with that.
If it doesn't, will get the rest later.

Later: Installed it and on the in-game benchmark test, went from 134fps to 157 fps but that was with the old gpu on medium settings but the 3070 on max settings, so think I will leave the mb and cpu upgrade for later.
Noice, which model did you get?

How does it go GW? I'm tossing up whether to go a 3070 or wait for more stock to arrive and get a 3080. Reason being I've just upgraded my 10 year ord old 21inch Dell's (5760x1080) to Asus ROG 27inch but now the old RTX970 is struggling with much more than 80fps at 7680x1440. I'm sure there is a way to down grade the screens back to HD but I'm not sure I want to as it's very pretty

Hard to tell Brad as the rest of my pc is getting on, an i7-3770K @3.g GHz, mb is 1151 pin and I think its about 8yrs old. I am using 3 Dell 27 in monitors at 5760 x 1080, but the 3070's doing a great job, just not sure how much better the 3080 would be.
Tell ya wot, buy the 3080, get it shipped to my place and I can compare them for ya  ;)
