The only game I really play anymore is Gran Turismo. Until the new one comes out I am holding off on the PS5. Right now I am using a 75" 4K QLED.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone else have a 5600x + a 30 series GPU? And do you run into any quirks when playing games?
5800x and rtx 2080. It's actually been the most trouble free set up I've had in the last decade. What sorta quirks do you have?

Sport looks real on the 5. Can't wait for 7

I hope they bring back qualifying.

Everyone talking about screen sizes. My monitor is I think in the high 20 inch range. My TV is 46 inch. Just not our thing I guess. Everyone I know has 60+ inch TV's but the wife and I are completely happy with our 12 year old 46er lol. Crazy that I see sizes slightly bigger that would fill out the space better at only $500ish. Like I said, just not our thing I guess.

I've been eyeing the 80 inchers in the 1500 range. Maybe Christmas.
I don't have a place for a TV that huge haha! My house has huge space for kitchen. dining, and master bedroom but rather small guest and living/entertainment rooms. Garage would also be considered tiny except it's a "2 car" that only houses the mustang. I think the biggest TV that will fit in the alcove about the fireplace is high 50 inch, maybe 60 tops. My brother has a massive TV that owns a wall and faces down toward the couch that looks way too close. We all like what we like lol.

The series X is great.. I’ve always wanted to build a pc but seems like a console has always been the way to go vs building a pc that probably costs 3x the price of a console.

These all describe what was happening at first:
https://www.google.com/search?q=3080+limp+mode
https://www.google.com/search?q=3080+low+gpu+usage
https://www.google.com/search?q=3080+high+framerate+and+locked+fps"


Pre DDU:

Post DDU:

My monitor also flickers for a few seconds after the computer wakes up.
What's your RAM and its speed? The ryzen chips rely on infinity fabric to get good speeds, the zen 2 more so than the zen 3. When I had my 3800x my XMP for my RAM didn't play nice and my bios would reset randomly every so often. The lower ram speed would cause the annoying hitching you're experiencing. Whenever it would happen to me I'd boot up cpuz and, sure enough, ram speed reset. The first result of the second link you posted has a similar fix.

Beyond that I'd make sure you're using the newest set of GPU drivers and maybe do a fresh clean up of any old drivers. Then maybe try changing pre rendered frames to 1 and try setting your power mode to maximum performance instead of optimal.

I used to play Xbox, but have transitioned to pc to play vr games. Pretty fun to feel like you are in the game. Have a dell gaming pc and oculus quest 2. Currently playing the original half life

I'm using 4 sticks of G.Skill 3600 CL 16 at the XMP frequency. My 3080 stopped going into "limp mode" after I used DDU to do a clean driver install, so the first 3 Google searches don't really apply anymore.
