The fastest card in that price range would indeed be an RTX 2080 Super, then just behind(When at 4K as you are) the RadeonVII and RTX2080 would generally trade blows depending on title, with the GTX1080Ti usually coming in just behind these two at 4K.

All these cards will have 2-slot versions that are still more than capable coolers in that price range, with the VII exclusively available in its stock 2-slot/3-fan form. Which card is best for your rendering if that's a factor for you would depend on toolkit and scene complexity and stuff.

You don't want a Radeon 7 on air. You'll hate it.

i am building in the ghost s1 and to be honest every time i look at the rtx cards i think they are over price for the Ray tracing and i keep coming back to gtx 1080 ti and i can get a used card from a friend evga gtx 1080 ti ftw3 for 450 pound i am find it hard to pass up.

The RTX2070 Super usually outperforms the 1080Ti, moreso in modern&future titles, and can be found for around the £450 mark, with the 5700XT a little notch lower in terms of both price and performance if you wanted peak bang for buck but still essentially(Within 5% at stock clocks) 1080Ti performance when at 4K(Custom cooler variants inbound from ~£400 from next week I believe which should just nip a 1080Ti with a little OC).

£450 for a Ti is too much and they're getting on a bit now.

RT is a waste of space IMO but the performance is ok for the price. Well, let's just say you ain't got much choice at that performance bracket and leave it there.

If you are building in a SFF case you should definitely research size limits. You may have to find a pure dual slot card (42mm in width max) or a card with a standard height.

The graphics cards I mentioned the EVGA GTX 1080 ti FTW3 is on the approved graphics cards list for the case

Which SFF case are we talking about here really? As I have experience with some of the smallest ones on the market, ie NCASE M1, Dan Case A4 SFX, Corsair 250D etc...
