1080ti for 250 euros a good deal?

 Share

Hi,

 

As stated above I have the opportunity to buy a used 1080ti for 250 euros.

 

Do you guys think this is a good price to pay?

 

Currently rocking a vega 56 and have been looking for an upgrade for a while.

 

Thanks!

Which 1080 ti is it? (Need to make sure it's not the MSI Armor or something)

 

 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

Not really, during this weather it'll overheat to hell and forth. The blower is loud and unworthy. The card itself also lacks some of the recent stuff... heavily recommend moving towards something capable of FSR 2.0, think 6650 which can be had for 370 easy in the U.S. Not sure of your regional pricing.

Check ebay, you can get RTX 2070s for around that price.

I'm not a professional, just an enthusiast. I don't know everything.

I would compare your local pricing for used RTX 2070's and new RX 6600/6600XT.

I've not kept up to date on pricing and there will be regional variations, but that seems about ball park price for a 1080 Ti. Certainly still a decent performing GPU for non-RT gaming.

 

The suggestion of a 2070 from others will be a trade off. It will be slower for non-RT gaming, but gains you the ability to use RT/DLSS for titles that support it. No idea if that is a comparable price.

 

6600+ tier new isn't even close in price.

2070 Super is extremely close to a 1080 to in non-RT gaming, to the point that (IIRC) when the 2070 Super came out, Gamers Nexus's headline on their review was "We get it, Nvidia, you can make a 1080 ti."

6600's can be had for ~330 Euros in some countries. (OP hasn't specified which Euro-using country he's in.) It's a substantial jump over a used 1080 ti in price from a percentage standpoint but I would consider it on the basis of longevity alone compared to a card that's potentially been clapped out for 4-5 years already.

Thanks for the replies guys! My euro country of residence is The Netherlands.

 

The longevity is a good argument. Since that 1080ti is years old and might fail soon.

I can find a 6600 xt for 400 euros which seems to be the best price. Or a 6600 for 330. Might be worth saving a little and going with a 3060 ti instead?

The original tradeoff was 2070 vs 1080Ti. You closed the gap by going 2070S vs 1080.

 

I still own both 1080Ti and 2070. 1080Ti when used for 1440p non-RT gaming, you can just set settings to max and not worry about it. 2070 1440p non-RT gaming, I do occasionally have to drop it a bit depending on my framerate target. It is noticeable, but both are certainly capable of a great gaming experience.

Agreed. Note I wasn't saying 6600 shouldn't be considered, but it is certainly a big step up in price to be considered.

Always a risk when buying used.

At the end of the day it is up to you what your performance target is, what your budget is, and any other non-performance considerations like hardware/software features that differ between nvidia and AMD.

 

What resolution is your monitor and do you have any particular care for really high refresh rates?

Thanks for the reply! I run ultrawide 3440x1440 at 75hz (Freesyn) and quite enjoy playing some vr sim games from time to time. Don’t really care about high refresh rates as long as it’s 75 fps constant.

All the options discussed from 6600 upwards, 2070, 3060Ti are a fair bit faster than the Vega 56. So you'll get either more fps or can set higher quality settings than you currently can. On the display, given you have FreeSync, it isn't too critical to keep at maximum refresh and occasional drops below that shouldn't be a problem. I'm out of the loop on VR these days. If done well they can vary quality to maintain required fps, with the safety net they can use tricks to mask drops below that.

No to 3060 Ti as well, I have had mine for couple years but only cause I own a G-Sync only monitor. You should be looking at the 6700 XT or such at that rate. FSR 2.0 is a biggie when it comes to solid lower spectrum of FPS.
