I have a 1080ti rog strix and was wondering if swapping to GeForce RTX™️ 2080 Ti GAMING OC 11G would be a good idea

 

I paid 800 aud for the 1080ti and I can get the 2080ti for 800.

 

Would it be worth the swap or is the performance diffrence not that much.

 

Basically just for gaming.

What resolution do you play? Is the 2080Ti used?

 

For those games I would say it's not worth it. New cards will be released soon enough that allegedly will significantly outperform the 2080Ti

I play at 2k resolution and the 2080ti is used.

 

I have also heard of such cards if I dont upgrade now will for sure do it when they come out

What FPS are you currently getting? I don't think it's worth that price for a used card that old. I'd assume your 1080Ti is still a beast, and you could get a brand new 2080 Super for almost that price, and they're super close to the Ti (no pun intended). I'd recommend just waiting for new cards.

I still get really good frames but if i can sell the 1080ti for 800 or close to I can upgrade virtually for free.

 

Im australian btw so the 2080ti in question  is 1800 new

How is $800 virtually free? You're upgrading to a used card, that soon enough will be replaced by cards that are better, and cheaper? You're essentially throwing away $800 to replace something that doesn't need replacing, only to have it be "outdated" in a matter of months. You'd be better off getting a brand new 2080S, which performs basically identical to a 2080Ti, except it isn't overpriced out the ass. Ti's are basically a ripoff at their price point currently.


Using GPU Check

With a 9900k, 1080Ti, you should average 105fps @ 2k

 

With a 2080Ti you should average 127fps.

 

Is $800 really worth it for a used piece of hardware, and ~22fps? That's insanity. That's $36/fps

 

You could upgrade to a brand new 2080S for a similar price (which is still a waste of money IMHO), and get the same effects. Except you have a warranty, and a new card.

What does air cooling have to do with it?

 

With this upgrade he will be paying for a card that will soon be replaced, without warranty, no real idea of it's condition/abuse, and he'll really see very little upgrade.

Because water blocks aren’t free. 
His card is outdated and could be out of warranty assuming it has one.
Still an upgrade in several ways. So if the end user wants those then it’s justified.

Don't get a 2080ti. That is very much overkill for these games. Even a 1080ti is overkill. A RX5600XT or RTX2060 or rx580 will do you fine. Buying a 2080ti in your situation is a waste of money

Did you see the games he is playing? Honestly, it's a waste of money to upgrade to a soon to be replaced card. He wants a 2080ti for a few light and e-sports titles.

Yea its abit over kill for some games although its basically required to stay in 100 frames in other games.

 

If i can sell my card for roughly 800 and use the money on the upgrade though?

Yea because the games played never change. Every card is a soon to be replaced card.
