Help choosing GPU to upgrade to

empire_tr00per

Hey everyone!

I currently have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080. I'm pretty sure I want to upgrade my graphics card but I'm not sure what to upgrade to since I'm new to this (sorry I'm still trying to learn). Should I wait for a while to change graphics cards for them to get cheaper or do you think there is one that would last me for a long time after I buy it?

I don't really want to buy some of the super recent ones since they are extremely expensive but I am open to suggestions nonetheless.

Thank you for all your help/advice in advance!!!

What's your entire system specs? As I've been led to believe (by Dawid does tech stuff), the 1080 is still a rather solid card. I've also read somewhere on these forums that there may be new cards releasing in the near future, so if that's true then it may be worth holding out for that

A Nvidia GTX 1080 is still a really great graphics card, the performance benefit from upgrading is likely not going to be worth the cost, only upgrade if you need features of newer graphics cards including ray-tracing, DLSS, etc.

Hope this information post was helpful  ?,

I would keep your 1080 and wait for the RTX 3000 series, your card is still a very good card, and your upgrade wouldnt be worth the money yet

NOTE: I AM NEVER ALWAYS RIGHT, BUT I AM HAPPY TO HELP ANYWAY I CAN
