2 Cheap or 1 Expensive Graphics Card ?

Is it good to buy 2 cheap graphics card instead of 1 expensive ?
e.g. is it good to get 2 GTX 1080 instead of 1 RTX 2080.

Neither. Get an RTX 3080. Even thought it's build on the shit Samsung 8nm process, it's still vastly superior to anything else on market, and at a competitive price as well.

you mean to 2 way sli 2 1080's? if so no. sli is dead, brings little to no performance and doesn't scale well, but it does also depend on the workload but if it's just gaming then no, if you're talking about just running 2 cards without sli'ing them, then they can't work together (well some workloads can utilize 2 separate gpu's at the same time) but at least in gaming, they can't. 

Just getting a better over all card is better.

For games? Single big boi. For other things, there might be scenarios where two 1080s end up better than a 2080 for compute I guess? But it depends a lot on the workload and if it scales at all with multi gpu.

 

The safe answer is generally one fast over two slower.


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

If you want compute, isn't a Radeon VII better?
