    Upgrade 1080ti to 2080ti

    I know Nvidia is announcing the 30X0 series tomorrow but i suspect my ageing pc would need a lot of upgrade to make the best of the new GPU.

    current spec: i7-5820 cpu, X99 mobo, 650w PSU, 1600 ram.

    so am thinking a used 2080ti.

    just wondering for those who had the 1080ti and upgraded to the 2080ti, was it a worthwhile upgrade?

    Of course i am going to wait to see what happens

    The 1080ti is still a very good card. If you sell your 1080ti and if you find a good deal I would pay 250-300 for the upgrade.

    After 3000 series avaliable, will be a lot of used 2080ti at good price. Avoid turbine cards.

    Thinking the same. Buy a RTX 2080ti but after reading how fast the new 3080 is gonna be. I probably wait another year.

    I have the 1080ti and 8700k
    Zero reason to upgrade for me in almost any sim title. I cannot really tell the difference above 80-90fps in any sim. And the 1080ti does that quite well with decent graphics settings.
    I don't use VR (much), but that would be about the only reason I'd upgrade right now.
    Maybe I'll change my mind when the new cards come out, but for now, I'm quite happy.

    I bet you are on 150fps in most sim titles, maybe except ACC. Only really worth it for VR right now I agree.

    For my triple setup 7800*1440 a little bit faster GFX card is welcome. I have to tone down the Reflections and shadows and track objects a bit to get a steady 60FPS.
    And I can't race in night or with rain. Although that is no problem for me as I don't like to race in night and with rain.
    Other than that I'm happy wit my setup.

    Yeah it's important to ask what screen resolution the OP is outputting and what their supported max framerate is. A 1080ti is still very powerful if you're only on a 1080p ~100Hz panel.

    I personally have a 1080 ti with a 3440x1440 ultrawide 100Hz screen and am able to play my collection of car games at either Medium or Ultra settings depending on the title. It's also worth pointing out that the difference between Medium and Ultra these days seems to be a much smaller gap compared to 10 years ago. Perhaps the widespread adoption of ray tracing will change that.

    I have kind-of always gone for top-tier graphics cards ever since the nVidia 9800 GX2 (first and last time I go multi-GPU) but for once I'm thinking of going a basic 3080 (non-Ti) or even 3070 depending on price and performance upgrade. But I won't buy nVidia until after AMD launch their next cards so that I can see how nVidia reacts.

    The 3090 looks like it's going to run hot and consume a massive amount of power and I don't fancy having that in my PC during the hot Australian summer. Part of me is tempted to wait and see the how quickly the 40xx series follow up is released with greater efficiency.

    Indeed, you need a heavy power supply to feed the new 3000 serie. I wait a bit longer as my current system still is sufficient for what I do with it.
    Of course you always can get better but I tend to look at things I have and not what I don’t have. If money was growing on the tree in my backyard I bought one but for now I’m fine with my current system.

    Probably 2021, I guess.

    But I'm waiting for the prices of 3070 and 3080 too. But I guess that the 3070 will be more my cup of tea, money-wise.

    To the OP: I'd only upgrade from 1080ti to 2080ti, if the delta between buying the 2080ti and selling the 1080ti is smaller than $200. Other than that, wait what the new gen brings to the table. Maybe the 3080 (non-ti) will come the same price point you'd pay for a used 2080ti, while still being a little bit faster.
