Graphic card to buy in Dec. 2018

 Share

I am building my first PC. I have been using prebuilt PC for my school for long time. It is time to change since I graduated and got the job!

 

I use my computer for mostly for autocad and some gaming.

 

I need hybrid (watercooled) card due to my case configuration.

 

I am looking at GTX1070 for $330 or GTX1070ti for $550 or GTX1080 for $750. These are my option. I gave up on RTX because they do not have hybrid version yet.

 

I am willing to switch to RTX next year or so when they release hybrid version but I cannot wait till then. Please tell me  which card is worth for me in these options??

If you have the money go for the GTX1080, but if you aren't doing a high refresh rate or high resolution gaming, then you can just by the GTX 1070.

Thanks for your reply. But I was curious, does gtx 1080 hybrid usually priced for 750dollar?

I think that's a little much for a 1080. I could buy an air cooler 2080 for that money

I would choose the 1070 here, if you're paying that much

So now I am going more towards to 1070. But how about 1070ti for 550 dollar? Do you think performance difference between 1070 and 1070ti is not worth 200 dollar extra?

an overclocked 1070 ti=1080. it really depends. how much would a hybrid vega 64 cost you?

What about a used card from the local tech forums? IF, like me, you can meet and deal directly with the seller, that would be best. I'd snagged a GTX 1080 for about 330USD, yes, I was fully aware it was a ex-mining card used for 6 months, but it still had about 30 months of warranty left when I got it. AN OC'ed GTX 1070 Ti (or a good OC'ed version of it) is about on par with a stock GTX 1080, but then, all you need to do is OC the latter a little and it leaves the GTX 1070 Ti behind.

 

It's a pity that there's no VEGA, I'm using one for gaming on a 3840x1080 monitor and it's surprisingly good, handles Strange Brigade, DOOM, Titan Fall 2 and Metro Redux series at max ingame or near max ingame. Just played Forza Horizon 4 at max detail (with my spanking new Logitech G29) and I must say, I enjoyed both the eye candy and a more immersive driving game with the wheel.

Yea I was looking into Vega series but it was just not available at my location. Price of GTX series are just unbelievable theses days. Especially I need specific version of it. 

 

I ended up finding 1070ti for 400 and I just bought it. It seems reasonable price for performance almost similar to 1080. Saved 300 and bought 32gb ram instead of 16gb and 1tb m.2 instead of 500gb.
