1080 vs 1080ti

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

So i'm creating my cart for my new PC which atm includes the ryzen 1700, C6H and Corsair Vengeance LPX 16Gb for ram. Other parts will remain as my sig rig most notably the monitor which is 1080p 144hz. I dont think i will be upgrading my monitor any time soon.

I want to be able to max out all games and keep the 120hz+ (even use some AA if i can). I was willing to spend GBP 680 for a Zotac or Asus 1080 ti FE but im wondering wether i can get away with a cheaper 1080. I do plan WC them.

I usually play BF1, LoL, DoW3 and other tripple a fps (farcry, assassins creed, fallout wtc)

Should i spend the extra cash for the guaranteed 144hZ or save some and spend it on better Ram/1800x? Also bar evga which brand is up there with them? Thanks!

Personally, I think you be fine with the EVGA FE 1080. The FE has great WC support and EVGA has a more extensive warranty program if I recall correctly. And the extra performance you would get from the TI edition wouldn't really translate well for 1080p gaming. thumb.gif

1080 won't keep you above 120FPS in every title. Go for the 1080Ti.

1800X is a waste of money, get the 1700 and OC

1080 will probably be fine for 1080p. Stay with the 1700, but look to invest in some fast ram (3200mhz+) as it will probably help you hit higher frames consistently in games.

You cant even get the full benefit of the card staying @1080p. GTX 1070 on up are for 1440p bare minimum on up. You are totally wasting your money if you go through with the GTX 1080 staying at only 1080p. If you want to stay at 1080p a GTX 1060 would serve you best.

I am inclined to agree with "FattysGoneWild", really a OC GTX 1080 will be able to output 120fps in most games at only 1080P, some requiring a "TINY" bit of IQ tweaking. To me a GTX 1080ti at 1080P is a utter mismatch and a waste, hell a GTX 1080 really is unnecessary unless you have no idea how to tweak a few of the least beneficial in game settings.

IMO You will get a better experience buying a 1440P@144 or a Ultra-Wide@100 with even just a GTX 1080, something around 100fps @ 1440P with a small bit of IQ tweaking is a much better performance / resolution balance and will be more of a treat to your eyes. Obviously a GTX 1080 ti is better again but that's extra $$.

The plan is to hopefully update within a year to an Ultrawide screen. However I need to woo the missus first xD So for now i'm pretty content with upgrading my GPU mainly. I wouldn't mind going for the 1080 and a pair of G.Skill Flare X.

I do not want to drop down to a 1070 as I believe it will show its age signs a tad faster than either of the 1080s and IF i do buy any sort of ultrawide or 1440p monitor the 1070 might struggle a bit.

The build btw is a purely gaming pc and thats got me second guessing whether a 7700k might be a better buy, but I do love team AMD and competitive prices xD
