It's always easy to spend other peoples money. However in this case he could probably get by with a 1080. Theres no doubt that the best is.....well.....always the best.

keep in mind that high fps on lower settings usually means that the cpu ends up being the bottleneck. with today's hardware, a 7700k @ 5.0GHz would be the most ideal combo with the 1080ti. The high clock speed and single core performance of the 7700K will be the most beneficial for high fps at lower graphics settings.


I think he already has a 5820k. It just seems like you are using copy pasta of every other fan boy on these forums. BUY THE NEWEST, AND FASTEST.

As stated above, its always easy to spend money that isn't yours. Also i don't think the OP doesn't know that the 1080 Ti isn't better than the 1080. I'm not sure that needs re-iterated.



I'm with you guys though. The 1080 Ti would be best, but the OP is asking if he can get by with a 1080. And based on the data i provided if he is going for low settings on overwatch he will always be above 240 FPS.

Sorry if I didn't make it clear in the op, but this is for 240hz at 1080p. I don't think there are any native 240hz monitors at 1440p, I'm also pretty happy with 1080p and don't quite feel the itch to go higher as of now.

My current cpu is an i7 5820k running at 3.6ghz, the overclock is pretty light and I'm sure I could push it higher if needed. While it won't come close to a 7700k at 5.0ghz I'm hoping that it will at least get me to the 240+ fps mark and not create to much of a bottleneck.

A lot of people seem to be pointing me towards the 1080ti and while I know its the better card the point of this thread was to determine whether or not i could reach the level of performance I'm looking for with a 1080. The 1080 ti is currently 200$ higher then the msrp of the 1080 and while it doesn't seem like that much when you're already spending so much on a gpu, that's 200$ that could be going else where if the 1080 can get the job done.

You could certainly wing it with a 1080 and be fine.

It is always easy for rando's to spend other peoples money, but honestly a 1080 will pull 240 FPS at 1080P on low on any competitive shooter that you'll play. Be it overwatch, or CSGO.

your cpu is faster than mine so you might get 240 on medium maybe high. i tried overwatch just now just for kicks and was getting 180-200 on medium just now. hope that helps. i honestly dont think that the gpu is going to make a difference. a 1080ti or 1080 because it will come down to the cpu.
