  1. No, DDU should be used when changing the graphics card, particularly when going from Nvidia to AMD or vice versa. If you are going for a fresh Windows install (which you should), there will be no leftover drivers for DDU to remove, other than the ones Windows will automatically install which shouldn't really be a problem usually.
  2. An 8700 should be perfectly capable of keeping up with a 2080S, so it sounds like a software issue on your side. Where are you getting your usage readings from? What graphics card were using before upgrading, and have you used DDU to remove any trace of old drivers, and then reinstall the latest from Nvidia's website? What PSU are you using? Have you plugged the video cable into the motherboard or the video card?
  3. The 1070Ti is still a really solid card, even for 1440p. I think it'll still work great until you can get your hands on next-gen hardware.
  4. Considering Ampere should be at least announced around March (supposedly), if you plan on buying a top end next-gen card, I really don't get why you'd spend $400-500 on a GPU now. What graphics card do you currently use?
  5. Have you got two different cables running from the power supply to the GPU, or just one leading to two PCI-E connectors? If the latter is the case, I'd suggest trying to run two different cables.
  6. Unfortunately I think this wasn't really the greatest choice of a graphics card you could've made for your first PC. Vega cards were near space heaters and power hogs already, but Asus' versions of the card, particularly the ROG ones iirc, had known VRM cooling issues. With that being said, I don't believe 95C is high enough for the VRMs to warrant a crash. I've had an R9 290 (also from Asus funnily enough) that had VRM temps spike up to 100-105C, though it never crashed because of that particular reason. What are the rest of your computer's specs, particularly the PSU?
  7. I can't really see any reason that would justify the $3400 for the Titan in this case, when you already have a 2080Ti; I really wouldn't expect it to perform noticeably better. If anything, probably Ampere will offer a bigger performance boost and at a lower price too, whenever those launch.
  8. Disabling Hot Swap in the BIOS for the respective drives should do the thing I reckon.
  9. Are you running the latest drivers? I can't even remember the last time I played Rust but I'm pretty sure it was running at over 60FPS all the time with an R9 290, which is slower than your 1070Ti by a fairly big amount. Also, GPU usage should always be 95-100%. It's the CPU usage that you generally don't want to go over 80-90%.
  10. It should probably work but noone can guarantee that it won't blow up eventually. Can you not replace it?
  11. What PSU is it? 850W is enough for two 2080Tis in SLI, it's more than enough for your system.
  12. 3600MHz will be more than enough. I doubt you'd see much of any improvement going to 4266 honestly. Also, I'd suggest going for a better quality power supply. Something like a Corsair RMx or be quiet! Straight Power will work great, and you also won't need 750W. You could go for 550W without any problems, or 650W if you feel you want more headroom.
  13. It's an utility that removes your graphics driver, including any leftovers it might leave behind if you were to just uninstall it normally. You will need to disconnect your internet connection and run DDU in safe mode, then after restarting install the driver (which you should download before all of this), then you can plug your internet back in. It's really not that complicated as it might seem, though if you feel you'd rather not do it, there is a chance that the new card will work fine even with your current driver, so you could just try to see if it works fine without doing anything. https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
  14. I think in BF5 and possibly The Division 2 your 9600K might just slightly hold the 2080 back, but it shouldn't be anything noticeable if I was to guess. Either way, it will be a major improvement over the 970 and you should have a great experience. Make sure to remove your current graphics drivers using DDU, and then reinstall the latest from Nvidia's website. It's not an absolute necessity, as you're not going from Nvidia to AMD for example, but it is good practice and you'll be sure that you won't run into any problems/incompatibilities.
  15. Are you getting the reading from task manager, and are you using the Ryzen Balanced power plan?
