GTX or RTX?

I'm looking to start building a desktop so I can stop putting so much strain on my laptop. I'm wondering if I should go for the RTX line or stick with the GTX.

If you're going to be playing games that use raytracing, then go for an rtx card. Otherwise, get a GTX card. Just don't get the 2080ti, that card has overheating issues.

No overheating issues with my 2080ti....

So I'm fairly new to the pc gaming world and pc building in general.  What is raytracing?

unless your on an extra budget

gtx line up, especially considering you do not even know what ray tracing is. As of now, ray tracing is pretty meaningless, considering there are barely any games that support it. You'd be better off getting Nvidia's 1000 series gpu's, even a cheaper one, and then when they launch their next gpu's when ray tracing will be more relevant, you buy one of those

use quote function, so we get notified and come back

 

Raytracing is a theoretically better way to do lighting, reflections and shadows compared to what we have. Atm it's still in early adopter stage, in which bugs occur frequently and performance on even the best hardware is poor. Price is steep too. Ignore this tech for the mean time.

Maybe, but Nvidia has delisted the 2080ti from their site, so it's best to wait 

 

Nvm thats fake news

I just wanted to say that the "performance on the best hardware is poor" is a bit misleading. Performance if measured in FPS is poor - but to do so, it has to do more. Arguably performance is great :)

The best desktops start with the question: What do you want to do?

RTX graphics will look great in cinematic games (e.g. Tomb Raider series). If you're mainly into playing shooters, RTX won't do much for you.

So, what do you want to play? And how much money do you want to spend? What do you think of buying a used GPU?

I play a lot of overwatch and CS:GO with a sprinkle of farcry 5 and bethesda games.  I have a 2070 build on paper for just over 1500 so id like to stay in that range.

For those, the RTX 2070 wouldn't use the new fancy tech. Rather, it would trade blows with the 1080.

The 1080 Ti is stronger than that; so if you are going for results at that pricepoint, GTX 1080 Ti seems the way to go.
