A:AnswerIt depends on the rest of your PC. If you have the latest processors and maxed out RAM, you might be able to run Paint if you switch the UI in Windows to basic, and close any open applications. If you really want to run Paint, opt for 2x 3090's, those can run in SLI. Good luck.
A:AnswerBest Buy needs to start taking pre-orders so atleast we know we're going to get one at some point and that would also eliminate scalpers. You don't have to be rocket scientist to figure this out Best Buy.
A:AnswerThey *will* come back out, but expect no forewarning announcement whatsoever. There is no definitive answer from BestBuy on this, and their reason is understandable, but frustrating. Restocks are the best-kept secret of this card. Giving no lead warning is policy for BestBuy, as a mechanism for detecting and subsequently at-least-trying-before-failing to eliminate bots. If the scalpers running bot armies know no more than you do, they are forced to perpetually hammer the site to detect stock change 24/7, and in so doing become more "visible" for BestBuys anti-botting detection and supposed blacklisting. Honestly, however, it doesn't do much good at all. This site, and specifically this page, are assaulted non-stop by bots disguising and/or masquerading IP info, etc. When they do come back in stock the bots cart them all within seconds, even with BestBuys "Second phase" authentication.
That said, for what it is worth, I've watched in earnest since launch, and have worn out the label of my F5 key. BestBuy *appears* to restock every 1.5 to 2.5 weeks. The latest restock came in 1-week + 5-days after the prior. There is no specific day (Friday seems to be the most common, but I've seen Wednesday twice, and even a Monday), nor specific time (I've seen 6:00AM PST, 8:00AM PST, and 2:00PM PST). At the time of this answer being authored the last restock was 2020-12-02, a Wednesday, at 8:00am PST, and they were literally gone in seconds (less than ten). I managed to get to "second phase" authentication before the page hung indefinitely and eventually timed out, several times. It took another 25 minutes before the site finally hung out the DND sign, and proceeded to flip back and forth between "Coming Soon" and "Sold Out" a half dozen times during the subsequent two hours before finally settling on what you see now (Sold Out). The prior restock happened on 2020-11-20, a Friday, at 6:00am PST, and was also wiped out in seconds, with a similar experience on my part.
There is no notify system; there is no wait-list. If you want it you have to be on the site, and have loaded the page to see the restock within seconds of it going live, or you're going to miss it (and, as I described earlier, even then, you'll likely still miss it). It is battle-royale, every man/woman/child/bot for themselves (one of those clearly having a distinct advantage).
A:AnswerGood luck there. You may be able to play Pac-Man on medium with animations disabled at best. Some reports have shown significant frame drops when picking up a power pellet. You might be better off waiting for the 3090. Hope this helps.
A:AnswerBro, Best But doesn't care about you or me, They just want $$$$$, and if they wanted CUSTOMER SATISFACTION they would implement waitlists or special check out or pre-orders, but no, none of that is implemented. Meaning that as long as they can sell 3080 in 0,4 seconds to whoever (most likely bots) buys them, everything is OK.
A:AnswerYou'll have to bust out a tape measure, the RTX 3080 measure in at 11.2"(L) x 4.4" (W), which is much larger length wise than the 1060 which is only 6.8" (L). Side note, the RTX 3080 is a 350 watt card, the 1060 is only 230 watts, you'll also need to confirm your power supply can handle that. 700 watt or more is recommended and it needs 2x 8 pin pci-e plugs (with included adapter) or a new power supply with the very recently adopted 12 pin pci-e plug
