Since my MSI RX 5700 XT is in RMA limbo, I decided to hunt for an illusive RTX 3080 or RX 6800 XT. That same afternoon, I stumbled on an MSI RX 6800 XT Gaming X Trio from Newegg.ca. Canadian "MSRP" was $1299.99 (ouch).

Knowing full well that I'll be receiving a refurbished RX 5700 XT for replacement from MSI, the decision was made easier to buy a new card. The refurb will go into my "The Hawaiian Heat Wave" system to replace the R9 290.

On 2021/01/27, I ordered the 6800 XT and it was delivered on the 29th. I reverted back to Auto/PCIe 4 and I've been playing Cyberpunk 2077 without issue!

So after I purchased the MSI RX 6800 XT Gaming Trio X (backplate is :( plastic), I finished Metro Exodus and Cyberpunk 2077. I also went on to play/finish Control Ultimate Edition, Pillars of Eternity II + DLCs, Syberia: The World Before, Disco Elysium, Dance of Death Du Lac and Fey Deluxe Edition, Devotion, Song of Horror, Life is Strange - Complete Season, TSIOQUE, Willy Morgan and the Curse of Bone Town, Tower of Time and Tyranny Gold Edition.

PS I did receive a refurbished RX 5700 XT (reference) from MSI that has been sitting in the box ever since. Haven't even tested it to make sure it works.

Tons of games in my various libraries and still can't think of another game I want to play. A reflection of the poor state of the gaming industry right now.
