How does this sucker look? I’ve been trying to get 3090 for months with no luck- ready to pull the trigger on an alternative.

It's a great GPU Render Node. Not all that fast for active workstation use, but if you're just looking to have an additional pc to offload rendering to, TR + a bunch of GPUs is always a good idea.

Yeah, GPUs are hard to come by right now, it sucks!
