2060 vs 1080

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Very simple title. I've seen a 1080 for 250, cheaper than a 2060, and I'm wondering if I should opt for that over the more expensive but newer 2060. I run:

i5 7600k 

16GBs 2400mhz RAM

Everyone would recommend the new architecture, warranty and efficiency. Regardless of how they perform. 
 

I’m quite the opposite. I’d rather pick up a  1080. 
 

like I got a 1080ti instead of a 2070. I don’t want the performance hit of rtx right now.

Honestly I think the 1080 is a better card than the 2060 by more than enough to suggest getting that. Sure it doesn't have ray tracing or the newest architecture with a fancy NVENC encoder but if you really just care about gaming the 1080 is better for sure

1080 for the extra VRAM.

RTX only hits performance if you turn it on... ?

Main reason for a 1080 Ti vs 2070 Super is they can be had cheaper used and are still faster. The 2070 S struggles to beat a 1080 Ti AFAIK.

Considering that the 1080 performs like the 2070, I'd say it's a better call.

Thus I’d rather get older hardware instead of new stuff that I can’t use.

Because I don't think $250 is a fair price for a used, out of warranty 1080.

I'm in the UK, £250 is an amazing price for a 1080. Everything else is £300+ which is about $400 or something like that. Cheapest RTX card used is £255, new £270.

Yeah, is RTX even worth it right now? There are like 3 games that support it, one being minecraft where shaders exist, the other being battlefield where you'd want to be at least over 60fps which I don't think the 2060 can even do and then rise/shadow (I don't know which) of the  tomb raider which is probably the only justified use case. And by the time RTX gets into full swing I'd be willing to bet a 2060 would be useless at anything at that point.

If you're in the US I'd personally pay the $300 for a 2060 with a three year warranty vs $250 for a used 1080 when they're pretty neck and neck in performance. I'm just not a fan of buying used unless it's really low budget where say $80 would only get you a crap GT 1030 new or an RX 570 used that would actually give you a good gaming experience at that pricepoint. But at $300 vs $250 I'd rather get the one I'm guaranteed to be able to use for three years myself. I see too many threads here from people getting fucked over buying used cards that die prematurely.
