    RX 570 XFX RS 4gb stock bought for £65. Bargain buy from a miner, happy until £200 Navi with 2x the performance of this guy comes around.

    Vega64.

    In winter I don't need to turn on the heating.
    Now it's summer I need a spill resistant keyboard to keep the dripping sweat out.

    2nd hand 980ti, got it for £250 nov '17. Replaced the thermal paste recently, and it handles 1440p as well as I need. the EVGA utility has an option to limit fps (and this limits power used accordingly), so it's nice and quiet in normal use - with the fan control as good as it is the only reason to upgrade is the power cost, and for my use that doesn't work out until 1070s come down to £40 or so

    GTX 970. It was a nice step up from my 5770 and the cost seemed pretty decent. I would be tempted to upgrade again if costs were more compelling so I'm probably going to upgrade the rest of my system and wait a bit until upgrading the GPU. I might have been less satisfied if my 1440p screen didn't break where I replaced it with a 1080p screen since the monitor offerings didn't particularly appeal to me at the time. Only problem is that one of the fans is now making a grinding noise after I somehow stupidly got a cable stuck in it so may end up replacing the fan. I'm not quite sure how I managed to let the happen. The 3.5GB is a little annoying, but otherwise it's served me well.

    RTX 2080 Founders Edition. Nice and quiet 1440p gaming with good frame rates, while also not using much power compared to my old R9 290.

    Re: QOTW: Which graphics card(s) are you using?

    I use 2 Maxwell GTX Titan X's in SLI (fully watercooled) in my rig, still quite happy with the performance, but when I do eventually upgrade I think I will just get 1 card.

    My wife uses a Pascal GTX Titan X (fully watercooled), she is still happy with the performance and no plans to upgrade.

    MSI 1080Ti (bought last year), I play at 1440p with no issues (G-sync screen), so not upgrading anytime soon.
    Live long and prosper.

    Re: QOTW: Which graphics card(s) are you using?

    Sapphire R9 Fury Nitro, bought Aug 16 for a jot less than £300. Best value for money at the time considering I'm not interested in 4k resolution. Expected DX12 or Vulkan adoption to be much better though, so that aspect of the card's performance hasn't shone like I hoped.

    Would still buy Radeon again seeing as I don't like NVidia's push for monopoly, nor their driver support and Experience software. But AMD need to make something worth buying first.

    Currently play an assortment of different games less than I'd like, and ironically mostly choose GTA V which performs worst of any on Fury. Still good enough for medium-high at 1440p though.

    Went from a 970 to a 2080ti. Big leap in performance for sure. Shame the screen I use is only 1080p,but I figured better to do a big upgrade once
