If you want to push frames and don't care about warranty, get the GTX 1080ti.
my screen is 60hz ultrawide 2560x1080, so pushing frames is not optimal for this i think.

I can wait tbh. I want to sell my GTX1070 before buying a new one. I never buy 2nd hand stuff for pc. But they don't offer the 1080ti new in stores anymore. Everything is RTX nowadays.

Many pascal cards were mined on and abused, are quite old now with their life often coming to an end if used a lot. Sure the silicon may be fine, but the endless heat cycling, fan spining etc. puts stress on other components, solder joints, fans, ...

1080Ti is a better performing card but not always.

A new 2070 is around 500-550 EUR with VAT.
Used 1080Ti, depends where and if you can even find and get one, some regions they go around 500 no? But other like mine people are nuts, cards rare and want near new card prices at end of life of the card, nuts, low supply for a rare card.
I am in the Netherlands. The "Dutch Ebay" look alike site, they sell them for €550. https://www.marktplaats.nl/a/compute...reviousPage=lr
