Gtx 1080ti vs Rtx 2080

A Shiny Bidoof

Okay, so i recently got into computer gaming a few months back and I went straight into an all out build with a 1080ti. It was at the time of bitcoin and I purchased it at the price of ~$1,000. I wasn't to sure if the prices were going to eventually fall or continue to rise so I just went for it. Sure enough the prices went down to about $800 and I was pretty upset. This got even worse when i saw the release of the Rtx 2080 which is also priced around $800. With the sudden increase of price in the 1080ti to $1,400 is it actually worth going through the hassle of selling it and purchasing the 2080 and still coming out with a profit. I know it's a stretch but could it work??

If you can actually manage to sell your 1080Ti for a profit, it would work and you can get a 2080, even if you don't use ray-tracing. You'll have the advantage of being more future proof, being on the new 20 series platform, and getting the stuff that comes with the new cards, etc. You're right, its a stretch but there are people who are willing to pay that so you have a small chance to do it.

If you can turn a profit, by all means go for it. You'll even get the added bonus of playing with ray tracing on at 1080p.
