How would this setup perform in the tasks I need to do.

Go to solution Solved by SpookyCitrus,

The GTX 1080Ti has little to no Ray Tracing support whatsoever. A 1080Ti should be fine for everything else. But anything to do with Ray Tracing is going smack it on it's ass in a bad way. 10 Series cards were given the literal basic level of RT and are pretty much incapable of running it. If the Ray Tracing portion of your needs is pretty important, I'd go for an actual RTX card. You can find used 30 series cards on Ebay for fairly inexpensive these days.

"I want a powerful workstation primarily for PCVR gaming at maximum settings of 90Hz, as well as for playing many games with medium-low settings at a stable 90+ refresh rate. Additionally, I will be using it for 3D modeling on Blender and for ray tracing. I understand that I may need to purchase an RTX GPU to run it well, but I have the option to buy a GTX 1080 TI from a friend for $100. My budget for the entire setup is $800.(not including the GPU)"

Thanks! I will certainly look into that
