I won't return it actually. If I did I'd still have to get something else like a 4080 so doesn't make much sense. I just really hate the thought of buying a card from this gen.
Last weekend we had a chill Saturday, drinking and playing Rocket League after the baby went down. My wife was asking all kinds of computer and performance related questions. More specifically asking about stuff from her MSI Afterburner overlay, and asking things like "ok if I didn't have you how would I know this is an issue in this game" stuff like that. She was asking about Hogwarts Legacy and the 'why' to her lag issues. The simple answer, vram, the long answer, memory leak. It wound up with her saying I don't want a 2080 in 2023. I was joking and said she needs to check her privilege and then I said I'd get her a 4070ti. She said she wanted my card (rookie move) so I took the bait and said ok I'll get me a 4090 then. She said deal and I was like fuck guess I'm buying a 4090 now.
