Ok so I sold my Gtx 1080 FTW hybrid  fo $400 and have squirreled back an additional $300 and I would like to get something new 

I game @ 1080p 144hz and I am unsure on RTX.

I could go with a 1080ti , 2060 , 2070 or even a 2080 I guess oh lets not forget vega 7 

Any input

I am happy with my 2080. Plows through anything I play without oc or water cooling help. Wouldn't a 2080 be a better performance margin compared to a 1080ti? In addition to that the 2000 series hasn't had time to optimise so I suspect there is more to be had from the cards in time.

"It works Because I threatened it. :lol:" - " did you show it the sledgehammer" - "No, A flight of stairs"
"I don't want to be much of a forum Nazi but this situation calls for a hail Bosco and blitzkrieg someone".

If that does not fix it I hop in a Timber Wolf and Blast it to microscopic Particles.

That makes sense , I just hate that feeling when you finally make your choice and not even 10 days later something better comes out. But 2000 series is my best bet plus vega 7 with no RT is a bummer

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.

Depending on who you ask the jump from the 1080 -- 2080 is gonna see you around a 20-30% hike depending on what yah play. 

 

I have kept it too myself nuit IMHO the fact that ray tracing has not been fully realized by many is a severe bummer for Nvidia and the 2K series of cards. HOWEVER, I think personally that card has been overplayed by reviewers. Ray tracing or not, its a good card. Is the cast too dang high.... well yeah. 

 

I DIGRESS.

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!

Personally, I wouldn't buy into the RTX stuff today. There is still a lot of work to be done and regardless of how impressive you think RTX is currently, by the time we see a mature use of ray-tracing in games, I suspect the RTX 2000 series will struggle. This is first-generation hardware from NVIDIA and clearly the software ecosystem isn't ready, as we only have one game (Battlefield V) and one student project with it (Q2VKPT). Another game should be launching soon with it (Metro Exodus) but also a game that released months ago still hasn't gotten it (Shadow of the Tomb Raider), despite being shown with it for the Turing launch.

Now, that doesn't mean don't buy an RTX 2000 series GPU, just that I wouldn't consider the RTX support a significant positive for it or a significant negative for any other product. Get whatever fits your need best, and if accelerate ray tracing is important to you, I'd say buy something less expensive and save your money for something in a year to two years, when NVIDIA will have its second or third generation RT cores out and AMD will likely have launched the ray-tracing ecosystem it is working on.

Hey we are both still using sandy bridge bro, mine just got an e in it. 3930k over here. ;-) and yes I completely agrees. Once he goes past the 1080p barrier then the 2080 will show its true potential.
