Choosing between 2080 and 2080 Ti

Hey guys, building a new rig here. I already got everything else sorted out, now it's just that I can't decide between the 2080 and the 2080ti.

 

New rig cosists of an i7-9700K, a Z370 Mobo, 16GB of DDR4 3000mHz memory, all that good stuff. Currently I play at 1440p@144hz with G-sync and a 4KTV with a GTX1080.

 

As we all know the 2080ti is expensive af. No question about it. It's also in its infancy in terms of how recent the thing is and all that about ray-tracing and DLSS, so there's a possibility that whatever comes next in line for RTX (or even the alleged super-powerful Navi) will be better and more affordable. But it's also the only thing that can do 4K60fps on Ultra right now, so it's really appealing to me.

 

The 2080 isn't quite 4K ultra ready, but with a bit of compromise there can be good fps to come from this card which is half as expensive as the Ti.

 

I have enough money to go for the Ti. Should I just swallow the high price tag and be done with the whole thing until a couple years later, or should I go for the 2080 and adapt a more aggressive upgrading cycle down the line with the leftover money? I imagine if Navi is anywhere close to what the rumors say they are, and given enough time, the price for 2080Ti should calm down. 

 

Again, I play on both 1440p and 4K. For 4K, if it's just minor compromises that I have to make in order to achieve 60 fps, it's fine. 

 

Thank you all!

Hi

 

I used a GTX 1080 ti(=2080) and now use a RTX 2080 ti.

 

The 1080 ti could hit 60fps in all my unmodded games at 4k resolution. I used low or no anti aliasing and reduced shadows to medium. On the Assassin's Creed Origins bench it did 61 fps average. That is with a i7 8086k with a 5ghz overclock.

The only difference using the RTX 2080 ti is that I can use more anti aliasing and I can put shadows on high. The limitation is the 60hz display. 

 

The RT 2080 ti does better at 1440 144hz. That is where it can stretch its legs. 

 

It is a tough choice. For your setup the RTX 2080 is a necessity and the 2080 ti is a bit of a luxury. If you want to do less fiddling and tweaking get the 2080 ti

Hey thanks so much for the insight. That AA and shadows bit is particularly useful as I know I can live with some tweaking and without AA - 4K doesn't require as much AA like 1440p does anyway. Some benches I found on the web showed that the 2080 performed slightly better than the 1080ti in some titles, which means I might get more mileage from a 2080 as well. 

 

Totally agree with you on the 2080 ti being a luxury. It is being sold 500 USD more than the MSRP where I live and the best deal I can find online is still a Gigabyte card with FE pricing. I found a 2080 perfectly at MSRP right now in a local shop. I think I'm mostly decided on that now and will upgrade later as I can always sell the 2080 for a ti at a more affordable price. Again, thank you for your help.
