I have the money for both technically, yes I get that the GPU's are new but the site I am purchasing these from only have 3 I am looking at GTX 1080 , RTX 2080 FE , RTX 2080Ti ... I have had shit computers for a long time and I want a beefy one that will last me a good long time. If I get the GTX or the RTX 2080 I am going to get the i7 8700k and if I get the RTX 2080Ti I will get the i9 9900k .... I just need opinions on best bank for my buck that I won't have to worry about going down from Ultra anytime soon. I am no good with computers so any help is appreciated. Also first desktop I will ever own.

If you have the cash to do so I'd look for a 1080Ti.

What resolution and refresh rate are you looking to run games at?

 

Buying a used 1080 Ti would be your best option but a 2080 Ti is better if you can afford it.

It would cost me way to much to hunt down a 1080Ti and they make you purchase a gpu there is no opting out so I would be wasting money sadly. If I could do that I would.

1080p and the refresh rate would be 180hz gsync monitor. I have no clue about gsync if my frames go over the refresh rate or not if it will cause tearing.

Well if you are looking at the 2080 and 2080Ti as options then you must have the money to buy them.

I really don't have the money to buy them that is why I put technically because when I get home I am going to have to get smothered with shifts in order to come up with enough money to live if I buy those cards.

Well to be honest if you are only playing at 1080P all three of these options are totally overkill, you may a well just get a 1070Ti and be done with it.

I may up the monitor later on but right now that is the most expensive part of the buy.

It most certainly can be.  I'd go with a 2080 and the 8700k.  Pair it with a nice 1440p 144+Hz G-Sync monitor

Then why are you getting a high refresh rate monitor? Get a 1440p/4K 60Hz one instead.

 

If you want to stick with a 1080p 144Hz monitor, then you'll need a 2080 Ti.

The high refresh rate was the lowest price gsync monitor they had.
