Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello so I have been looking around THE INTERNET!!! But I can’t find any opinion sooooo now I’m here.

so I’m looking to get an RTX 2080 and I’m looking to get the Acer Predator XB240HBbmjdpr (that is 1920 x 1080 144hz) but what do you people from THE INTERNET think. I’m looking to play any kind of game... PLZ HELP ME!

i don't see a question here? xd

an RTX 2080 is a little bit overkill for 1080p 144hz, you'll be fine with a 2070 or a 2060 depending on what games you play, 2080 is more aimed towards 1440p/4k or 240hz monitors

Can you wait 2 days? The new AMD cards are launching tomorrow and are a way better value. Once reviews are available you might want a 5700 XT instead.

 

Definitely don't buy a 2080, it's about to be discontinued. It's also overkill for 1080p.

You probably won't hit consistently 144 with that. It's got lots of cores but most games only use 4 of them, and the clock speed is pretty low. Buying the most expensive option rarely gets you the best performance in gaming.

I actually have a 1440p with RTX 2080 with a 1700x and it hits 144hz on the games that I really care about. With something like Rage 2 it averages around 90 FPS. Still taking advantage of the >60fps framerate and G-Sync. 

 

I'm also interested in any recommended 1080p 144hz monitors. I'm planning to buy one for my brother in law.
