I still don't play any titles that require RTX so it was a waste of money from my perspective.

I ended up returning the 2080ti.

The 3060ti is about the same performance as the 1080ti but has a TDP of 200w (compared the 250w of the 1080ti). I currently run the EVGA 3060ti XC and it is significantly smaller, performes the same or better in most games as the 1080ti, and runs cooler with less power. 

It also seems like it's a fair bit cheaper in your currency (1600 vs 2000?). I'd go with the 3060ti.

 

 

That's an issue with your setup then. 2080 Ti is better performing than the 1080Ti to the tune of 25% on average across all games.

 

At OP, I'd suggest the 2080 Ti.

Greetings to all, my english may suck, so i apologize in advance

 

So i'm stuck between 2 choices 

 

I live in Georgia(Not U.S), and prices are "normalized" here, so i have an option to buy RTX 2080 Ti for 2000 GEL (approx. 680 USD) or RTX 3060 Ti for 1600 GEL (approx. 545 USD) 

 

I am aware that 2080ti outperforms the 3060 Ti. But i am worried about "future-proof" ness , what you guys recommend.

MY RIG :

H510 Flow

5600X

GeForce GT 520

B550 Tomahawk

EVGA 750W GT

Future proofness...
Both have DLSS, RTX, and Nvidia REBAR doesn't do much really...unlike AMD's Rebar.
Both are fine for future uses.. they support all the same technologies thus far except Rebar isn't available for 2nd Gen, which isn't a big deal.

If warranty is a concern, maybe the 3060Ti over 2080Ti, and some games might like 3rd gen (optimizations) moreso..

I doubt you'll be disjointed with either GPU, both are primo good gaming GPU's.

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz

The 2080 Ti has more video ram which I think is much more important for futureproofing, especially when game mods come into play.

3060 Ti while a bit slower than 2080 Ti, is probably good enough unless you either fit into the insane fps gamer or 4k ultra gamer areas, where that extra performance could make the difference. 1440p at 60+ fps is easy. Maybe just me, I'd rather have new than used (it wasn't stated, but I'm making that assumption). How does the 3070 price compare to 2080 Ti since they're practically the same in gaming perf?

 

In terms of gaming tech both probably have the same practical life, putting aside the minor fps difference. 30 series does do newer HDMI standard in case you want to connect it to TV at some point, and is more efficient in general. By the time it is worth replacing either things would have moved on more.

Are you using the GT 520 now? I can't even imagine that far back! No personal experience in that game or running insane fps, so will have to leave it to others to advise there.

I was not a fan of the 2080ti. The benchmarks were all quite misleading. I "upgraded" to one from a 1080ti and got WORSE performance in several games. The 2080ti ran hotter, consumed more power, and was an overall wash. Some games gained a small boost, other games took a small hit. I still don't play any titles that require RTX so it was a waste of money from my perspective.

I ended up returning the 2080ti.

The 3060ti is about the same performance as the 1080ti but has a TDP of 200w (compared the 250w of the 1080ti). I currently run the EVGA 3060ti XC and it is significantly smaller, performes the same or better in most games as the 1080ti, and runs cooler with less power. 

It also seems like it's a fair bit cheaper in your currency (1600 vs 2000?). I'd go with the 3060ti.
