The 51k price for the 2070 FE increased to 54,250/-. Even last night it was listed at 51.2k but with no option to order. Ordering went live only after the higher price was updated AFAIK
That was bound to happen with the INR-USD conversion rate now. I was hoping for ~50k custom cards but that hope died with the custom 2080 prices.
I saw that as well but really on the fence now as to whether spend 64k for MSI 1080Ti ARMOR or 62for a MSI 2070 ARMOR

Go ahead and laugh at me guys for my impulse control of a junkie. :(

I had planned on 50-55k for the RTX 2070 but saw the prices at 60k+.The 30k I had budgeted for hard drive data recovery also didn't pan out. So then I upped the ante and got this. No more upgrades for the next 3 years.....Thats a promise I have to keep.:arghh::arghh:

I had gotten these 3 pack DeepCool RF120 fans which are compatible with Asus Aura Sync and finally did something about the hated vomit+poop colour combo of the stock Noctua fans on my NH-U12S CPU Cooler.

However I got impatient and just popped in the GPU and the Samsung 860 Evo 500 GB M.2 SSD which gave me a lot of pain since I had to search a lot for my multi-headed screwdriver kit which I have rarely needed till now.

Now once I get a replacement for my dead WD Red I will install the RGB+CPU cooler fans as well.

But the worst thing after all this is that I am still getting micro stutters on Ghost Recon Wildlands.:banghead::banghead:

Congrats. How much did the 2080 work out to? Also, try cleaning all traces of old nvidia drivers before you install the new version.

Well, I am planning to get a RTX 2080Ti myself though it will be likely from US and 2-3 months later.

Sorry to hear about the micro-stutters. As Lord Nemesis said - try removing the old drivers.
There's a free program called 'Display Driver Uninstaller' which is what i use for fresh driver installs.

Doing that right now after Google spit out the Guru3D link for the same.

Downloaded Crysis 1 on Steam as well to get my revenge on this game which butt kicked my old GPU when it came out.:)[DOUBLEPOST=1540298565][/DOUBLEPOST]

Seems like nVidia is still trying to get rid of the large stock of 10XX dies they have

Showcasing, the first RTX 2080 TI in Techenclave.

Interestingly this card is actually VFM when used for Neural network training (Deep learning) workloads due to the availability of Tensorcores which allows for FP16 training. Titan V was too expensive to be bought and used as a hobby card at home.

It being able to play games is like a cherry on Top.

Congrats, but why didn't you go for a custom design card. The stock founders edition design is crap and trapping heat and also there are reports that founders edition PCB based cards are all dying.

It was the cheapest at around 1.02 Lakhs.:) Everything else was more expensive at ~ 1.15 Lakhs.

As far as failures, it is under warranty from Rashi. If something goes wrong, will revert to my 1080 TI in case of RMA delays.
