Finally buying a new Graphics Card!

 Share

So the time is upon me, I have saved up all the monies I can, and am finally able to purchase a new graphics card. I have my eyes set on the new RTX 2080, but am unsure which model to get, since I cannot find benchmarks for some of the models. Currently my local computer store has the following in stock.

 

GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 WINDFORCE OC
ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 O8G Dual-fan OC Edition
MSI GeForce RTX 2080 GAMING X TRIO
GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 GAMING OC

Any other brand or model is currently on back order, and not really keen on the idea of waiting.
My current graphics card:
R9 390 Nitro

tbh, I'd rather get a 1080Ti.

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

Where I am, the 1080Ti is like 10$ cheaper. Personally I am not gonna buy previous gen, if the price difference is so minimal.

*edit* also pretty much sold out

Wow. sucks living in a place where there's a $400 price gap.

 

Really anything except the dual fan ASUS one.

I have a personal bias towards MSi. I think their Gaming X line looks pretty sexy.

There's not a lot of reviews yet of the different cards because the reviewers can't get their hands on all the different ones yet. Also, you won't find much a difference between most of those cards. If you want to OC get one of the cards with 3 fans, I've heard good stuff about the MSI cards so that would be a good buy.

I was leaning towards a 3 fan model, so good to know. My R9 390 is a 3 fan and I have never had an issue with cooling. Thanks for your suggestions!

Personally I prefer EVGA but those must be sold out. If anything I vote for the Windforce Gigabyte one. Those cards have a pretty good track record.

Ya, there are no EVGA in stock anywhere within driving range. I was looking at the gigabyte windforce first and foremost, its about 60$ cheaper than some of the others, so that is a huge draw.

EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC ULTRA GAMING 8G Dual-fan 
But its a dual fan model

Performance-wise, there should be little difference among the various brands, as such, I think the one with the best or longest warranty wins. In my neck of the woods, I'd gotten a Palit RTX 2080 Ti because it was one of the lowest priced Ti models, plus it has a sweet 3 year warranty.

I've been asking for some advice on my new build. I do however feel pretty content about the GPU I am about to buy (also a 2080)

From the research I have done it seems like the Asus rog strix RTX 2080 or MSI GeForce RTX 2080 GAMING X TRIO <- Do best both in performance, temp and noise benchmarks. Personally I want the Asus the most but its alot more expenssive than the MSI.

 

So if those are your only options I would pick the MSI if you want the best performance (1-3% in max difference) and want something silent. I have a 770 windforce and I have been pretty happy with that as well, so that could be a good option as well.

 

That is my advice from the limited knowledge I have scrapped together.
