Probably 3080, though I may wait for the refreshes. We'll see how things look on release.

I'll probably be getting something, as my 970 is old in the tooth by now.

Yassss. Upgrade fever. I'm not getting the founder's edition or anything, but probably around November when the dust settles I'll be doing a full refresh.

I only game on Playstation nowadays. But I’m tempted at getting a new pc so I can play Microsoft’s new Flight Simulator.

MSFS 2020 is the best out of the box VFR flight sim ever produced, no question. It's only going to get more amazing over the years as the weather and flight model is improved and payware study level aircraft are ported over.

There is a youtube video that says there is a passenger add-on to MSFS. I haven’t watched it. But does this mean that you can load your plane with passengers and then crash it into a building in New York for an example? Maybe into Trump tower?

I wonder, if you play the game and you repeatedly crash into buildings, will the NSA and the CIA be alerted? Maybe you are just a terrible pilot who is only learning how to fly, but maybe the US government will think that you are a terrorist who is rehearsing an attack on America?

Well there are no crash physics in the game. Terrain is not destructible and your planes do not take any damage when colliding with terrain. There are also no plane vs. plane collisions.

So the best you could do would be to practice hitting terrain. But you can do that in many flight simulators - and currently you can do that better in some of those than in MSFS 2020 because the flight model is still evolving in 2020. And there are also no study level aircraft at this time (PMDG has confirmed they are bringing their line to MSFS 2020, but who knows when that will be).

As for passengers, you can load (and customize to some extent) passengers into your airplanes. So you can practice flying close to maximum weight, etc. If you want to add "jobs" and an economy of sorts, you can connect through something like FSEconomy, which is partially functional for MSFS 2020 now. I have no doubt that things like VATSIM will support 2020 as well (if they don't already) for added realism like talking to ATC simmers.

That'll make my Twitter suggestions weird for a while ;p

RTX memes have arrived:

Not much meme worthy about the 30xx series so far. Their pricing allows for 20xx memes though.

One day hopefully we get another Fermi level Nvidia launch

I'm definitely not impressed with the VRAM amount on the 3070 and 3080. I don't know if they'll have higher VRAM options in the initial releases, but it would probably be worth waiting for the refreshes just to get higher VRAM counts in a 3070 or 3080. I'd call 10 GB borderline right now for something like a 3080 if you're looking a year or two down the road.
