hello, so my plan was to wait for 3080 to actually be available. but my gpu died leaving me with no choice but to opt for a 2000 ...

 

my system is ; ryzen 9 3900XT, rog strix b550-f gaming motherboard which has pcie 4.0 for gpu, 16gb ram g.skill 3200 (tho cant get it to 3200 its on 2955)

 

What I want my system to achieve is only 1080p gaming, my monitor is 144hz.

I would never go for 1440p let alone 4k. I play gtav, valorant, wow and do graphic design (very little 3d, mostly illustration and design) mainly. but I would want the card to able to support all single player games that are going to be released in hopefully some years without causing problems in 1080p

 

2080ti is a bit overpriced 

2080 super is ok for my budget but I want to know what you think, based on my needs what choices do I have in 2000 series. what you recommend.

I would change the gpu in a couple of years to a 3080 or whatever comes after if its good. I will probably keep this card for 2-3 years so I dont want to overspend on it but more importantly wouldn't want it to cause any problems like not being able to handle a game at 1080p in that time.

These are my choices. I know obviously for performance the higher the better. but I wonder if I'm overspending with my needs ? since I dont want to go above 1080p (and also have a 144hz monitor )and would probably change it in 2-3 years

If your budget allows for the 2080 why not wait on the 3070? You are going to get more out of your money.

Since they went with delaying the launch and having more stock you should be able to get one at launch....I hope

I dont know how much these will cost you, but for 1080p very high settings a 2060S will.be sufficient for about 80-120fps depending on the game, until you enable RTX that is.

I understand,

 

Well it's up to you, the 3070 releases in 7 days, if you can wait 1 week I'd say wait for the 3070.

If you can't get one on launch day you can still buy something else, but I'd say for the extra value of the 3070 over the 2080 you will regret it in the end (I know I would)

 

It's your choice though, but that's the advice I offer.

Is everyone assuming the 3070 is going to magically be available on launch day? And if so, why?  Genuinely curious.

Same thing just happened to me. I would recommend you do what i did. I'm waiting on a 3070 so until then i went on facebook marketplace and found a 100ish$ (gtx1060 is what i got) gpu that can easily run games at 1080p until you can get ur hands on a 3070.
