I need help on a gpu for that AW3418DW Behemoth.

 

First off as much as I would love a EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3 ... i'm not buying used ... it's to sketchy for me to have to deal with on my first build. 

 

so my options are an EVGA RTX 2080 $699 version "when it goes in stock" and I will add the 5 year warranty to it and call it a day ... or should I wait for the RTX 2080 Ti to go in stock from EVGA for the $999 + 5 year warranty on that.

 

$699 2080 or $999 2080 Ti both with the 5 year warranty add on.

 

Hell or high water i'm putting this together in a week or so to make sure everything works for warranty and returns and what not, even if i have to use my 750 Ti sc for a little while until those go in stock.

 

I'm leaning to the $999 2080 Ti but what do you all think?

 

Thanks ?

Its up to you and if you want to spend the money for the performance. If you can afford it, I don't see why not

I guess also what i an wondering is if the fps difference is worth it for $300 bucks? example what would the FPS be on Witcher 3 with that 2080 for this monitor vs a 2080 ti at full ultra settings 1440p. That is what I don't know. I don't want to get something not powerful enough if you know what i mean.

I use a 1080 on a 1440 ultrawide at 100hz and it works just fine. A 2070 is a little bit better than a 1080. So either a 2080 or 2080 ti will perform good. I would  honestly just go with the 2080.

3440x1440 is pretty much 35% more pixels than standard 1440p, which means you can remove about 35% of the fps from these benchmarks. 

This puts you at

2080Ti - 90fps avg

2080 - 70fps avg

In Witcher 3.

Thanks for that info, So i assume 70 - 90 fps isn't worth $300. But also if I plan on keeping this for the next 5 years without upgrading anything unless something breaks would a 2080 ti future proof be worth that $300?

No, nothing is ever future proof. 

Also, if you look at it, you are comparing $700 to $900 and 70fps to 90fps which means every dollar of the 300 you'd spend more gives you more performance. Linearly. I guess it really is worth it in your case. 

 

However:

Usually (unless most recently) GPU power doubles every 2 years. So in 5 years your 2080ti would be a "GTX4050" or "GTX4060". This is why I'd personally rather go for a 2080 and then a 3080 next year and then a 4080 the year after instead of 2080ti and then 4080ti while spending pretty much the same. 

 

Not upgrading your GPU in 5 years is a lie you tell yourself so you can spend more now. 

 

Edit: I've had 4 different GPU's in my main rig over the last 5 years, just to give an example, lol.
