Which 2080 Ti model should I buy:

I am building a 2700x build and am thinking of buying a RTX 2080 TI (I know it's pricey and pretty much no preformance boost over the 1080 ti but it's a new Gen card and I feel as though it won't become outdated as quick as the 1080ti). The only problem is that I have no idea what model I want. I was looking at the Gigabyte Gaming OC and the Windforce OC as they are a little less hurtful on pocket but after reading some reviews people have been saying that, like in the 1000 series cards, they are quite sh***y and may preform at higher Temps under load then that of an MSI or Asus card. I would like to know if I am wasting my time looking at Gigabyte 2080 Ti cards and if it would be more beneficial to just spend another $50-100 on another brands card. Any advice will be much appreciated!







My build :



CPU: Ryzen 7 2700x



GPU: RTX 2080 TI which model to buy;;



MOBO: Asus X470-F



RAM:Corsair Vengeance LPX (16Gb) (3200mhz)



PSU: Corsair CX850M (I know it's a lower quality but in South Africa it's the best I could get at my price range)



COOLER: Corsair H115i RGB Platinum (280mm)



STORAGE: - SDD - Samsung 860 EVO 500GB

- HDD - SEAGATE 2TB



CASE: NZXT s340 Elite (Matte Black)

I'd say you are wasting your time.

I have 2x 1080ti, more than enough power. RTX is new and very few games support it, or even do it well.

1080ti in my eyes is good for at least 2years more.

Like Warchild said, I'd go with a 1080ti or 2 (if you can afford it) option is yours. If however money is no object and you just simply have to have the latest and greatest then go RTX but for me I'd say get a 1080ti and enjoy a good few years of high end gaming while RTX matures and becomes a viable real option all devs are on board with.

Personally I'd wait to see what AMD come out with.

You didn't specify the monitor.

I completely agree with Warchild on this. 2080 Ti only makes sense if you have 1440p 144Hz monitor, or 4K. And I would personally not run 2080 Ti with Ryzen. Having 9900K, 9700K, 8700K (delided), and overclocked to 5GHz+, also Intel X299 are the only situations when you can utilize 2080 Ti. Ryzen just isn't man enough for 2080 Ti. It is a good CPU, don't get me wrong, but not the best CPU. Good for mid to mid-high range builds, but not for balls to the wall. And when you look at Gamer's Nesus' charts below you will see that you loose really big chunk of performance just because of CPU bottleneck (yes now it actually exists). And that chunk of performance is why you would pick 2080 Ti over 1080 Ti.

So for your build 1080 Ti is perfect fit. You can find them used still in warranty for 500 or less. And you can buy higher end ones.

Gigabyte Gaming OC is perfectly good card. Everything comes to the silicon lottery in the end. Only important thing is to buy OC model. They have "A" dies which are binned from the factory.
