Are you gaming at 4k 120hz or doing some production thing?

If not the 2080 super is plenty good enough at $400 less...

Probably just go for the EVGA card with the reference PCB.

I need help choosing a 2080ti. As I am planning on water cooling, AIB cards with larger heatsinks that you pay extra for are an easy no. But I am having trouble with a single problem. Should I get an FE card or should I get a reference PCB Evga card. As it's reference I assume that performance will be the same. So is Evga's better warranty worth buying one of their cards over an FE card?

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Prefer the looks of fe. I only get reference evga to put a block on it, as the bios tends to be a tad better.

FE is love.

 

Buy the RTX 2080 Super FE, best value 2080 Super which will be a beast at 1440p gaming.
