If price is no issue and you want the BEST there is, why don't you grab the 2080 Ti already?

To say which is the best, it really depends on your needs and other components at that pricepoint

I'd recommend anything from a brand you know and that isn't the cheapest option the manafacturer has.

But why a 2080? A 1080TI would be better and cheaper, if you can miss RTX.(Which is crap anyways)

People do love to throw that phrase around, not quite using it right.

 

I think you mean you can afford a 2080 and are willing to pay a premium for the best brand of 2080 (he did say best ONE). 

 

Probably EVGA even tho I have had issues with them.  They still put a lot of thought (cooling, efficiency, OC, etc) into their upper tier boards.

Speaking of... it helps to put your location in your profile so folks have an idea of this when making suggestions.

Yeah that stands to reason. 1080 ti stock is running out. Look into strix models, they're top tier.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

components are as follows

i7 9700k

Corsair VENGANCE RGB PRO 16 gb 3200 

Samsung Evo 970 500 GB

then i'll say the following cards:

EVGA XC (ultra) Gaming for overclocking

Gigabyte aorus xtreme for compatability with your mobo

msi gaming (x) trio for one of the best 2000 series can offer

Asus ROG strix (advanced/oc) for the looks and the general great cooling of the strix series

Msi sea hawk x for hybrid cards
