    Best to wait for the reviews, and from more than one source.

  • Question: [Moderator note: moved post to Graphics Cards.]

    Hey, here is my dilemma, I need a new gamer pc, my old one is dead. I have paid a local business for building it.

    I have see the RTX launch but I'm not sold, so I went with the GTX 1080 ti instead. It's cheaper and I could get it right away. It has also been well test and supported.

    I ordered it, and then the guy calls me and tells me the GTX 1080 ti won't be in stock before the 14th. He then asked me if I wouldn't rather have the
    "Asus Dual RTX 2080 8GB", by model.

    He offered it for the same price(even that it's a bit more expensive), and since the release date and restocking date are close together. I choose the new generation.

    I have heard many online saying we should wait to see reviews or benchmarks before buying it. But I really wondered what other people would do in my place. After all it's not too late to change the order.

    I guess my question is, what would you do?

    Here is the system I ordered.

    Intel i7-8700K
    Cryorig H7
    Asus Dual RTX 2080 8GB or Asus Strix GTX1080Ti 11GB
    32GB G.Skill RipJaws 3200MHz
    Asus Prime Z370-P
    Kingston A400 240GB SSD
    3TB Toshiba P300 HDD
    Corsair TX650Watt Gold+
    NZXT H500i - Black

    Answer: First, one thing i notice was the term "dual" in asus. that dual cooler is pretty bad, and you might want to do something about it.

    performance wise, I don't think there is going to be too much difference, between 1080ti and 2080. that's what people are basically guessing, and it's reasonable to say that this is the worst case scenario. (1080ti = 2080).

    any chance that rtx 2080 massively improves fps over the 1080ti (2080 > 1080ti). that's an bonus.

    since you are paying the same for the latest tech. i think it's worth a try.
