Grabbing a 2080 tomorrow, which brand would you guys recommend? Or are they all basically the same?

2080 Msi gaming X trio came today, was in sheer awe of the size of it. Way bigger and heavier than the 980ti gaming 6g. Such a great looking card, and while I really don't care about rgb the lighting on the card is rather nice.

However due to needing to use one of the pcie slots for a lan card I cannot use the gpu sag bracket, and this card is pritty damn heavy. Also it came with a bunch of scratches on the nameplate, no way is this brand new probably an amazon return. May send the card back cause of those two issues and grab a cheaper two slot card(ventus or xc), as I really don't want the card to sag and warp over time.

Quick benchmark of my 980ti vs 2080 both at stock out the box, seems I am going to be cpu bound now haha. Though almost double the performance.

I have a 3 slot card, it's a heavy bugger and it would sag, I had to buy one of these:

My Cheapie Galax RTX 2080 EX 1clickOC V2 PCB pic. It was the cheapest that I could afford in my budget PC build It can OC to 2115Mhz on Core and 8500Mhz on Memory. I just need a waterblock to hold the Core OC steady. Thinking of buying one.

Does this draw more power than the 980ti? My system felt rock solid before, but now I am getting random mini freezes in divison 2 and my psu is making a small buzzing noise and I got my first crash(while playing divison 2) since re installing windows like 6 months ago on my new samsung 860 1tb evo.

Using a quality psu the xfx xtr650W, I am sure 650w was supposed to be enough for a 2080 and a 6700k oced at 4.5ghz but the noise and the crashing has me worried. Since my 980ti has almost sold on ebay I may just grab the a ventus 2080 since it uses less power than the trio x and it won't sag. Or if my psu is really on it's way out may have to just grab a cheap 2070 and a beast of a psu as a stop gap till next gen gpu's.

I too have a i7 6700k OC to 4.6Ghz. My PSU is a Corsair HX1000i. I normally cheap out on as much as I can on a pc build, but the two things I don't cheap out on is the PSU and the Thermal Paste(Kingpin KPX Cooling).

Well from my understanding quality psu > watts on the psu, and when I purchased this years ago it was one of the best units at the price/wattage because its a Seasonic unit under the hood which was considered the best psu makers.

I believe quality and quantity a balance of both. That's why I chose Platinum instead of Gold for my PSU. No mini freezes here. Also I chose 1000 watt just in case I wanted to OC and get a power hungry OC gpu. Anyways All is well here


For the rest of my PC build like the PC Case I cheaped out, the soundcard I cheaped out. For the GPU it's a cheapie Galax 2080 1 clickOC V2 $889 AUD + 3 free games The motherboard, it was fairly cheap Asrock mobo. etc etc.




I always say use what ever system that "Works Well" for you

Turns out it was the new gpu, think I got a real lemon. At 80mhz+ on the core it would just crash, could hardly maintain 2010mhz in game after throttling I think it must have been a faulty return. Put my 980ti back in and put a hefty overclock on it(still surprises me how low nvidia clocked the 980ti knowing how much it had in the tank) and my system is 100% stable rock solid again.

Reps to the people that said just go with a two slot cooler, I feel that's where the price to performance is this gen due to the power and heat limitations of all the cards it doesn't seem like a 3 slot is worth it unless you really need that 1-2% extra however it comes at the cost of sagging and £100+ extra. I will just go with a ventus, will try get the OC version at a decent price and call it a day.
