A used 1080ti is the best option, but really 500-600 quid for a +2 year old card is alot. I think it is funny that the 2080 is as expensive as the 1080ti was back in the days yet performs barely the same. A 2080ti almost cost the double of what the 1080ti did back in the days, I don't feel their price settings anymore.
If im not wrong the 1070 performed a bit better than the 980ti and it had a competitive price. The 1080 performed notably better than the 980ti, but the 1080ti performed a whole lot better than the 980ti and it had a price that was still decent considering it was the fastest card available at that time. I feel the price is increasing and the performance increase between the generations are getting smaller. Why would anybody want to pay 800 quid for a 2080 when it performs similar to a 2 year old car that cost the same? Hah. The lucky ones are those that bought the 1080ti right before they got discontinued because you could get them for like 500 retail if im not misstaken. That is still 300 quid less than the 2080 and you get the same performance!
If I still had my old 980ti then I would be tempted to get another one and SLI it, and get similar performance to one 2080ti on 1440p, that is dope. But I don't like two cards due to microstutter.
