My prize arrived from Corsair but something odd about the packages; the boxes were dropped off (no knock at the door or doorbell) and I noticed that both had a commercial invoice attached to them. I contacted UPS and they said the shipper will pay for the charges.Two different UPS customer service reps told me the same thing(but I don't know if I trust what they are saying). Can you confirm with Corsair that they will pay for the charges? I don't want a surprise invoice from UPS to arrive in the mail. Thanks

Will you just enjoy your prize, most prizes arrive with an invoice because the company has to do that so they know where their stock is going. Don't worry about it, just enjoy it

I agree Boinker, but I really can't see a very noticeable difference when playing at 1080p , now if jdm-freek is planning to upgrade to a higher resolution in the future then the 2080 is the way to go for sure, but then again this is coming from someone who is still using a 6 year old 2600k and still don't think an upgrade is necessary,lol!

I don't think you should even consider anything less than a 2000 series card, a 1080ti is not even much of an upgrade from what you sold. I could see an upgrade if you gamed above 1080p but imho you won't see much of a difference from your old card no matter what you buy.
