Usually when a client comes in I makes sure he isn't a "Prick" before I recommend stuff, if it's a "Prick" I'd recommend the GTX 1080ti and charge him a extra 10%. But LTT members are rarely "Pricks" so go for the RTX 2070 it's got a 1080s performance with the latest so called "RTX" if you're running a 1440p monitor, if you got 1080p go for the 2060. Any higher its waste of money.

i have a 1080p monitor but i am going to buy 2k 144hz monitor pretty soon i think even before i buy my gpu , thanks for the recommendation man ;D

2070 is a bad value, I'd go for the 1080 Ti or 2080, both perform about the same. 8600K will keep up fine, especially if you OC it. At 1080p my 5Ghz 8600K kept up with SLI 1080s or a 1080 Ti no sweat, at 1440p it'll fare even better as more load is pushed on the GPU.

2070 is a stupid card that nobody should ever buy. If you don't want to spend 2080 money, then get a 2060. It's like 10% slower but 30% cheaper. Otherwise go 2080. A used 1080ti is fine too, but I wouldn't pay over $550 for one. 2080 is around 5% faster and it would be new and come with warranty.

Let me guess your calculations are just for the gpu and not the full system build cost?

Hmm weird you guys say it's a dumb card but it gets the most votes. The problem with 1080ti right now is 99% of the cards are more then 3years old and you wouldn't know what kind of overclocking was done in the past 3 years. Let me guess both your calculations were for just the gpu and not the system builds.?

99% of cards were bought literally on launch? Weird. I also didn't know cards randomly exploded after 3 years of overclocking..

 

Also I ran the system cost just now (excluded peripherals because those aren't the PC and don't affect performance and thus shouldn't be included in price:performance numbers) It's around 20% more expensive for 10-15% more performance. Still stupid. You guys and gals are allowed to disagree and vote differently, but I still think it's a stupid card.

Yes the card won't explode after 3 years but you do understand that not every end users are good at overclocking, you won't know what kind of dmg have been done thru the voltage oc. And as a business owner that buy back parts I've learned one lesson "everyone lies" *I've never overclocked* *no, it wasn't used for mining* *I didn't do much just some light gaming*

Video cards are very good at protecting themselves these days almost to a fault. It's pretty hard to kill video cards. They're extremely locked down. Seriously you can literally turn the voltage on MSI After burner to the max and it will be fine. The card will limit the voltage anyways no matter what you try to do.

Also I forgot, the mining boogyman is weird for a 2 reasons. 

1. Temperature fluctuation hurts cards more than constant high temperatures assuming they're not extremely high

2. Most mining cards are undervolted because they aim for efficiency, not raw performance.

You do know that there are softwares out there unlock the voltage lock downs right. I've had client's cards that worked for 3 months and had their capacitors blow and had me do replacements.

I didn't say muning did dmg I just sait it as an example that end users always lie to get a better price on their cards, not everyone knows what you just explained. There are those that still believe "oh only light gaming"  and belive me Craigslist /eBay plenty of liars

Do you think it's common for people to do that? I certainly don't.

It's more common then you'd think. I still have 2 gtx 1080tis in my bin waiting for replacement capaciters that people sold me as dead cards at $50. 

Note : amd cards even more.

And belive me there are idiots that download the software and killed their cards and come in saying "I didn't do much just a little overclocking" light overclocking my ass you popped 1 or more of your capacitors, that's at least 130% voltage.

Yep, just the GPU. Given that he's looking at a 2080 or 1080 Ti, which are both in the $600-800 range, and has a budget of $850, it's a pretty solid assumption he means $850 for just the GPU. If he has the money, not much reason to go with a card that performs worse outright, and in performance/dollar. If the OP wants to save money I'd go for the 2060, it's a much better value and should to 1440p60fps fine, even with RTX on IIRC(you don't have to max it, no noticeable difference a lot of the time).

Agreed, but I wonder is the system on his pcpp is Al eady done or he intends to get? 

Because he can do a better build for less.

2 out of how many cards? Also good thing we're not talking about AMD cards, otherwise that may have been relevant.

when i said i had 850$ budget i meant for the gpu only ofc , monitor budget isn't  a problem right now i work for a company in my country that sells TVs and monitor , laptops ect.. i can get decent monitor for 25% discount , max quantity 2 per year
