GTX 1080 ti or RTX 2080 ti?

 Share

I have been planning a top of the line computer that this forum has been helping me out with (thank you so much, by the way) but I have not bought the parts and built it yet because the GPU I wanted, the Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 ti Xtreme 11G, was either was out of stock or massively overpriced. Recently, I noticed that Gigabyte came out with an Aorus card for the RTX 2080 ti, and it looked absolutely gorgeous, and I've heard it is fairly powerful. That being said, I've heard a lot of bad things about RTX cards. In general (and for my build in particular) which card should I swing for, the GTX 1080 ti or the RTX 2080 ti?

As of right now, price is not a major concern, but is to be considered. Also, if anyone sees any adjustments I should make to my build, any comments would be appreciated.

Take out the G3 750W, get a RM750x instead.

 

If price isn't a concern for you and you want great performance, get a RTX 2080 Ti.

I would definitely get a 9700K; you even picked a Z390 board.

edit: Forgot to answer question, I'd pick up a RTX 2080TI if you can, but this is more for longevity rather than performance. Also I would get an NVME SSD.

@Tastybird { 'v' } Depends on when you want stability and when you're going to upgrade. If you want stability, get the 1080 Ti. Pascal has been optimized to pieces over the past few years and it's not going to suddenly fall out of favor in games and other programs.

 

If you want performance, RTX will provide marginal benefits when it's optimized. No one knows when that will be, but it would obviously be impossbile for Nvidia to go an entire product generation without making that product line usable and stable. Given that product cycles can be multiple years, though, you may still be waiting a significant portion of time.

Should I not get a 9900K?

 

Is this the ssd you're referring to? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/2K22FT/western-digital-black-nvme-1tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-wds100t2x0c
