Hello! So I’m planning on building a new PC and since there’s been so much news about the RTX 3000 I’ve been wondering if I should wait for it or buy the 2000 series now? 

 

For context, I initially wanted to get an RTX 2070 Super as I couldn’t afford the RTX 2080 Super, I thought if i get the 2070 first I could then save for the 3000 series, but I was told I would be wasting money with the 2070 Super and instead should go for the 2060 Super. But after looking at it I wanted to wait for the 3000 since it’s a few months away. 

 

I would be video editing, streaming and gaming on this PC. 

 

So my question is should I wait for the 3000 series? Is it worth it to get? (In relation to cost, the more the months go by the more I can afford). Should I just get a 2060/2070 Super? Maybe I should get the 2080 and not waste my money on the 3000 series? Should I get the 2060/2070 Super first and buy the 3000 or whatever is good a few years down the road? 

 

I’m also asking this now because apparently it’s been recommended for sellers to increase the price of the 2000 series as production for it has stopped. 

 

Please help me out! Thank you!

Yes

No way to tell what the performance or cost will be.

I wouldnt

 

You should wait until 3000 is out. By then you might be able to afford a 3080 and that will hopefully be as powerful as a 2080ti (if not more powerful). 


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Good idea to wait, really.

 

Even if it's not as powerful as the rumors suggest, it's still better use of your money in terms of how much performance you're getting.

I'm quite certain the 3080 will be beefier than a 2080 Ti. If it wasn't, then we have a problem.

Im hoping too, but ive heard that they are pulling an intel and only having a minimal performance bump. But because of the leaked stuff already, im hoping its not true.

It´s not really "recommended" for sellers to up the price artificially, more like the supply line stops and demand did not, thus driving prices up naturally ... 😕 


Could you maybe tell us rest of your rig? To compare it, if it´s not an overkill maybe? However, if you need some graphics card NOW, I would maybe look for 2060 / 2060Super, maybe even used one, or even 1660 Ti ... Be aware, the 3080 will probably be available by end of September, but i think the 3060 / 3060Super will be the sweet spot, so that´s another month or 2 of waiting ...

Probably not tbh.

 

But I know they will be pushing DLSS 2.0 pretty hard.

I would recommend going used for the time being, you won't loose as much money.

I would rather say RX 5000 or wait for RTX 3000 & RX 6000, why? RTX premium is tax ain't worth it right now...

Could you maybe tell us rest of your rig? To compare it, if it´s not an overkill maybe?

I'll be getting a R7 3700X, 32GB DDR4-3600, 1TB NVME, 2TB HDD, 750W PSU 80+.

 

I'm not sure if I intend on getting the 3080, maybe 3070 at most, I was told it'll probably be overkill and i could use the money for something else.

That's true, I live in Singapore as well so it's quite likely the launch here will be longer.

No way to know yet, as there are no benchmarks of 3080, nor specs of 3060/3070 to kind of "predict" performace, which you then have to compare to price ... So even it´s "behind the corner" and we can have "kind of general idea", it´s still just a rough guess...

And as said before, you might have to wait till Christmas till there is some sweetspot model available in affordable price. 😞 But then if you´ll wait till Christmass for GPU, you might as well wait for Ryzen 4000 as well ... It really depends when you want, or need that build at home. GL

It´s definitely good CPU, so no loss there... Now it´s a matter of getting GPU. You basically have only following options:
1. get yourself used GTX1660Ti or RTX2060 for low price, and wait for RTX3060-3070 to be available for moderately good price
2. same but with Radeon RX5600 or RX590
3. buy RTX2070S or 2080/S/Ti and roll with it for next few years
4. buy Radeon RX5700XT and again, roll with it for next few years
5. use whatever you have right now (if you have some GPU from old system) and wait for 3060-3070

viability of those options are in this order (in my opinion) ... the final choice is yours, depending on your current budget, and what are your plans in next 6 months. :)

This was going to be my next question! Thank you so much man :) Will be getting my gpu soon then!
