GTX 1080 Ti vs RTX 2080

Guy i'm looking to buy either one of these cards.

Where i come from the Palit GTX 1080 Ti Super JetStream is USD 833 and the Palit GeForce RTX™ 2080 GamingPro OC is USD 1000.

I game at 2K and don't have any plans on going up to 4K.

Please advice me on which card is better at these price points.

Depends on whether you care for the Ray Tracing and willing to stick to the newest Windows 10 builds that have a ton of bugs. I would get RTX 2080 - it is more future-proof, but I, as someone who already has GTX 1080 Ti, won't upgrade until the next generation comes out.

Definitely I will go with RTX 2080 as its a new gen card but if you want to save some bucks then 1080ti will not a bad choice as the performance of the both card is almost similar

How long do you plan on having the card? DLSS (if it works out okay) could be a really nice feature to have when the cards performance is not up to snuff (at native resolution). Otherwise, they seem pretty similar. In some games the 2080 loses by a very small amount (I've seen it losing by 1-2 fps in GTA V, but can't remember which review), in others, the 2080 wins by a decent amount (like Rainbow 6: Siege, per TPU's review). Not sure if 10% overall is enough to push games from unplayable-to-playable, but it could be worth it for you.

Can't really go wrong with either card, but for long term, the 2080 is a safer bet for more performance (and the difference will likely get bigger as time passes).

Though, I personally, would take the 1080ti and save for the next upgrade [if you stay around a gen behind you can still get decent performance for a lot less cost]. I would rather have more frequent, cheaper upgrades than less frequent 'better' upgrades.

My philosophy with hardware (and tech in general) is "buy low, sell low." If you bought a 980TI when they came out, you paid ~$600+, a year or two later it could be worth ~half that (I paid $325 for a 980ti with a water-block in 2017), card is now worth ~$250ish (with the block); I'll only lose ~$100 (33%) vs $300 (50%) on the card. Obviously this is case-by-case thing and depends on the used market, but I think it is a pretty good philosophy to have.

I am SUPER biased though, 90%+ of my hardware/electronics are used or open box. "One man's trash is another man's treasure" fits me to a T .

Your buying strategy makes sense to me, although it also means you probably have no warranty.

Yep, I usually try to get an invoice or MSI/Gigabyte cards for the serial number warranties. *Knocks on wood* luckily, other than some RAM (which probably has the easiest RMA's ever), haven't ever had anything die that I wasn't trying to kill (though I may have repressed some memories).
