    EVGA RTX 2080

    For a 50 (dollar) difference I'd say go for the cooler one indeed. It is quite a lot yes. But it's just a guess, might be 1-5 degrees.

    EVGA RTX 2080

    I don't have them but difference in temps will probably be within 5-10 degrees, where the ultra will be cooler.

    Brand new GTX 1080ti or RTX 2080??

    I'm in the same position you're in and I am getting a 2080. In my opinion it's worth the price difference to get a new gen GPU, even though performance is similar. I believe future driver updates will help improve the performance somewhat (prob not much though). I just do not get spending 700> on an older generation GPU.You might as well spend 100 more and get the latest.

    Need Help deciding on which UltraWide Monitor to Buy

    I'd recommend the Dell Alienware AW3418DW, which is the monitor I plan on getting sometime this year. It has 1440p curved IPS panel, 100 Hz (overclock to 120Hz), 4ms and gsync. Allthough it's 1000 bucks, I'd personnally think this is one of the best monitors out there at the moment.
  5. Play it again in the Death March difficulty settiing Not many other games meet the same level of storytelling. I personally got a Witcher 3 feeling playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, but I've only played for 2 hours.

    RTX 2070 vs GTX 1080

    Depends on the performance difference... I'd say if the difference between the 2070 and 1080 is no more than 5-10%. I'd get the 2070 if the price is the same for the 1080. I'm in the same situation with the 1080ti and 2080.

    MMORPG in 2018

    Guild Wars 2 definitely gets my vote too. Gameplay is amazing, same for the community. Games still gets big updates and the world is very very large. I personally have over 3000 hours in it since releas, but at the moment I've stopped playing. I only play once a new story patch is released. Personally I would have liked it if they didn't released mounts into GW2, it kinda killed the original gameplay for me.

    Alienware 34 Gsync ips 1440p Backlight bleed is okay?

    Yeah, that's way to much backlight bleeding. You should return it.

    240hz vs 144hz

    Why are you disappointed in the 1440p 144hz? What other type of games do you play? If only shooters, get the 240. I personally have the Asus MG278Q (which is 1440p 144hz) and love it.

    Living/Studying in the Netherlands?

    Hi, I'm Dutch and recently graduated so I'll try to give somewhat of an impression. I haven't studied in Delft myself, but in Groningen. One of the first things you must know about living in the Netherlands for international students is that it's really hard to find an accommodation. All cities having universities are having difficulties with accommodations for students and international ones in particular. As an example, I've heard that employees of the University of Groningen were asked if they could house international students for a while because there is a massive shortage. Plus, if you do find one expect to pay a high price as people will charge a lot. I'd say around 300-400 euro's a month for a 10-15m2 room is considered normal/cheap, depending on the house and location, I'm not sure about prices in Delft. Also be carefull when looking for an accommodation, there are various websites that are made for scamming you. You have to pay, say 1000 euros upfront, and when you arrive there isn't a room. Websites that are good are; https://kamernet.nl/, https://www.funda.nl/. It will help a lot if you already know someone in Delft who can help you. That being said. The things you list are all true. You will get a bike and you'll find out the people can be blunt. Transport in cities having universities is great and also the intercity transport is good, though expensive (not sure about discounts for international students, you should look into that). I'd say it's not important for you to learn Dutch beforehand. As you say, almost all people in the Netherlands speak English and the study itself will of course be in English. Some German words are very similair to Dutch words, though. From what I've heard Delft is a nice place to study. I'd recommend finding a study/sport association which is a great way to connect to other students. If you have any more questions, just ask (great choice on Aerospace Engineering btw)

    Dust Issues

    Carpets will increase the amount of dust in a house. Also, do you have any dust filters on your system? Might be because you need your house itself more often and more thoroughly. Other than that, there isn't much you can do about dust in your house.

    I second the ASUS MG279Q. Have it myself and is a great monitor for all types for games.

    Need help deciding on a 2080TI

    If you look at Nvidia's own website the price for the FE is 1259 euros (assuming you're dutch from the image) not sure why tweakers would say the last FE one sold is at that price. Nevertheless, it won't be worth it for the 2080ti to get a FE (unless you're water cooling). I've had two 970 windforce OC since it's release and never had a problem with them. Never had an EVGA card, but I've never heard any bad things about them. My suggestion is to get the card which appeals to you the most (do not know if aesthetics matter to you), the performce between them will be at max 5% I guess and I would suggest not to let your decision be based on delivery time as you're going to have to wait anyway.

    Why it is stupid af to buy RTX cards now.

    Everyone keeps saying do not buy... but it really depends on the situation. Yes, if you have 10 series, don't upgrade to RTX, not worth it imo. But, I currently have a 970 which is showing signs of retirement and am therefore looking to get the 2080. The price difference between the 2080 FE and the lowest priced 1080ti is about 100 euro for me, which are the 'lowest end' of the 1080ti bunch. On average the price difference is 50 euro in favor of a 1080ti. That price difference is worth it to me to get he lastest gen. As an example, the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING ICX is ~150 euro more than the 2080. Plus, I do believe that drivers will help improve the performance of RTX cards in general gaming. RT might be neat but it will take a while before it becomes mainstream (if at all). I won't be buying it for RT, the amount of compute power is a pro for me aswell over a 1080ti.

    1080 ti 2080 or 2080 ti? for long term

    I'm in the same boat. I'd say wait 1-2 months and see how drivers will improve and maybe the price of the 2080 will go down. I won't recommend getting a 2080ti, definitely not worth the money. What is the price difference between the 1080ti and 2080 where you live? If your 980 is failing and the price difference is <100 then I'd say get the 2080. Otherwise get the 1080ti, it will last a couple more years.
