Since last week, sellers from the various stores have been offering everyone to pre-order non-reference Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards, whose images were leaked recently. Now they are joined by Silicon Valley Computers, located in Saudi Arabia.

GIGABYTE RTX 3060 Ti OC Edition RGB and GIGABYTE EAGLE RGB GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards are now available for purchase in one of the Saudi Arabi store. There are no photos from different angles, but there are some specs of the GPU: 4864 CUDA-cores, 8 GB of GDDR6 video memory operating at a speed of 14 Gbps, and a 256-bit bus, which gives memory bandwidth up to 448 GB/s. These specs completely repeat the characteristics previously seen in GPU-Z.

At the moment, the store offers to purchase video cards of GIGABYTE RTX 3060 Ti OC Edition RGB and GIGABYTE EAGLE RGB GeForce RTX 3060 Ti at a price of 3,799 and 3,699 Saudi Riyal respectively, or almost $1000 US after conversion. By the way, in the same store, the cost of the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 OC Edition RGB video card is 4,799 Saudi Riyal.

I wonder if any of these RTX cards will work on my 460W PSU. Perhaps the RTX 3060 will be the one.

Dang, just bought an RTX 2070 Super. If this performs better than that and is $400, may as well forget about getting any kind of decent return on it.

Only 8 GB though. Godfall already requires 12 GB for the best settings (see dedicated thread), so I'm not sure that's very futureproof.

Yeah but will it be available when it releases? Probably not.

Interesting, there’s also been more talk about a 3080 Ti 20GB drop. Having skipped out on an FE 3080, the former would be great around Christmas.

Godfall requires 12gb for max settings at 4k. Something this card can't run regardless of vram.

How much do the next gen consoles cost in Saudi Arabia?
This isn't available in an official capacity there, so the price is nonsensical and a ripoff. Series X and PS5 are available officially, and so the prices are more or less what you'd expect (about $530 plus 15% tax).

This isn't going to be a 4K card, and it's not going to be something anyone buys thinking they're going to max games at 4K with. This is going to be a budget card.

Hardcore PC gamers always scream at me that PC is cheaper than a console though


The initial cost up front is more, but over time you save a ton by not having to pay for online functionality, and when you participate in Steam sales or take advantage of sites like CheapShark.com the savings begin to very quickly turn in your favor.

Factor that in with full customization options, the nearly unlimited things a PC can do with the appropriate components, and the overall performance benefits compared to console (plus emulation and BC) and it truly is a no-brianer imho.

I say this as someone who also loves Xbox consoles fwiw. PC is the way to go, hands down, imho.

Plus, Handsome Mr. Frog! :)

Ugh i wanna watch that vid but i don't wanna wake my SO 🤣

I was only half joking with that comment, i even said so to someone else shortly after in this thread. I appreciate you being cool/civil, not unlike that brat before you. Couldn't take a joke, could he? That's fine, he's irrelevant.

I do enjoy PC gaming occasionally, even though mine is severly out of date and hasn't even really been used in 2 years or so. It just lays below the bed I'm currently on. I give them love big time just for the variety of MMORPGs and RTS alone.

I'm surprised people keep jumping to Xbox though. I'm not an Xbox girl at all. I had 2 original crap out and 3 360s red ring. I've barely touched the X1 a friend gave me earlier this year. I've had better luck with Playstation, and would like to eventually get a PS5 but, money and availability, ya know?

People enjoy different things. It's whatever: literally just video games.

Some people here don't seem to socialize much outside of the internet, and that dude appears to be one of them.

Yup. I never understood the platform war or why people feel the need to try and justify what's better than what. It's all personal preference, it's all games. I dunno why it has to go beyond that. Like, i don't care if 360 is more powerful than a PS2 (yep, two different generations here), if the PS2 had more games on it that i find interesting, I'm picking that over the 360

I'd rather just play anything and everything. *clutches her Vita with love*

I mean, its not like the 3070 or 3080 have enough VRAM for that either.

The 3060 should be able to run this game at 4k ultra 30fps, if Nvidia didnt drop the ball with the VRAM amounts this gen.

You don't have to buy this card. But PC gamers are certainly not paying $60 - $70 per game. Also a single video card can last 2 console generations if need be.

This argument is so worn out.

Nobody forces console gamers pay 60-70€ either.

My average is probably closer to 20€. And near launch around 30-40€ by buying used.

Meanwhile pc gamers buy 5000 games from steam sales and never play them :D

We all know why pc gamers say it is cheaper:

They pirate games

They're not "Haramiyah", people are too stupid that they keep buying this overpriced shit.

Prices were decent when pc gaming wasn't as popular as it is now.

Surprisingly rtx 2070 super is still going for $450+ on ebay used.

Posted mine on Facebook and everybody is offering me $350. Fuck that shit. Give me $400 or more (yes I know rtx 3070 "is only $500", but it's not readily available anywhere).
