The 2080 super is marginally more powerful than a 1080 ti, and very marginally better than a strix. Keep your current one until a 2080 ti is on the table or until the next generation swings around and you can upgrade to the next top tier.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained

Your only good upgrade option is a RTX 2080 ti and not an entry level one. 

I recommend an EVGA FTW3 Ultra or equivalent so expect to pay $1400 or more.

 

The reason for this is that to be a worthwhile upgrade you will have to overclock to the point that an entry level card would be too hot and too loud.

 

Upgrading to a 2080 ti form cards like the 1070 or 1080 you would be less inclined to be unhappy with the stock performance of the 2080 ti. 

 

Basically the 1080 ti is a tough act to follow and only for the price of 2 of them you get a good upgrade.

Thanks guys. Im leaning more towards keeping the 1080 ti. I would be to afraid of buying a 2080 ti ,and end up it breaking down. Especially with all the issues going around with those cards. I don't kinow how safe of an investment it would be to buy a 2080ti.

The 2080ti hasn't had issues since launch, the cards that had issue were FE cards of people who bought super early. From what I've heard it's been quite a while since any of those issues have been reported and I think most of them were fixed with bios updates.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

From what I read the issue where with gddr6 memory in them. It was pinned to the one that had the memory chips made by micron.
