Built a new PC,looking for GPU recommendations

Hello everyone,I just finished building my new PC and now GPU buying is a concern. My build is:

Gigabyte Z390 Ultra

9700k + be quiet Dark Rock Pro 4

16GB DDR4 G.Skill 3200

Samsung 970 Evo + 4TB HDD

Corsair RM850x (2018 edition) + be quiet silent base 800



I play on full HD 60hz and now I need to step in 1440p gaming with 144hz monitor (also looking recs for this one)

Mainly I play World of Tanks,but I always play AAA games when they are out,mostly FPS and TPS games.

Since there are some problems with 2080 and 2080ti cards dying and amd doesn't offer anything interesting at this moment

Now I play WOT on medium settings with on board gpu (uhd 630) so basically I can wait for some new releases,but as I guess it's not happening in new future.

I need gpu to power one 144hz monitor for gaming and another 60hz big TV for movies,adventure games,browsing etc...

2070 isn't fully enough for 1440p gaming,which makes choice even more difficult,what should I do?

I have an Asus PG279Q which is a 1440P 165 hz monitor and like you i dont like how unreliable and pricy the RTX cards are so i stuck with my GTX 1080 and it plays almost everything with max settings at 1440P with no problem

The GTX 1080 Ti cards are getting rare but the GTX 1080 should still be around on the second hand market so you could grab one of those for a decent price

Start an AMD and Nvidia competitor to make your own GPU as that is your only other option if Vega7/2080/2080Ti/1080Ti aren't enough for you at 1440p. Even $200+ cards can run 1440p 100fps+ if you select well optimized and made games, don't use crazy max settings that don't have almost any visual advantage anyway.

Forgot to say,I'm out of used items business.
Buying sites: amazon.com or geizhals.at

P.S Since my R9 390 Nitro died with no reason to die (never oc-ed,never mine,super cool environment) I guess my priority is nvidia cards.

Vega VII comes out in 2.5 weeks. Just snag one of them when it drops if you really must have the latest and greatest... It will power through ANY content currently out today at absolute max with 1440 and still have breathing room. Since your moving from 1080P to a higher resolution make sure to keep the GPU memory in mind as you buy. I think its important to mention, my 7 year old XFX7970 with 3GB of memory runs most 1440P content just find unless its a title that causes me to run out of VRAM, which is more common with each game release at this point. To assume that a GTX1070 Ti through RTX2080 in the modern day will suffer at this resolution is completely inaccurate as they are probably starting at 200%+ faster than my card with more than twice the VRAM, as I can run said content on this dinosaur although at lower settings.

As I understand only optimal option is buying 2080... I was just wondering if there would be any sense in waiting for this cards for price drop + which 2080 is better to buy? Are Gigabyte 2080 good cards? They are kinda cheaper than all the others

So I don't have finally decided,but thinking of buying 2080 MSI

WIll it be good decision made by me now or should I wait for price drop or any new products ? I was thinking also about 2070 which can be enough for 1440p gaming by reducing some settings,but price difference (about 150-200 euro) between them isn't a real problem for me,so should I go with 2080 msi? ))

I have two options for you vega 64 and GTX 1080, if you don't want to go with vega 64 then GTX 1080 will be the best choice

Vega 7 just came out. U.S. retailers offered 3 free games as a bundle. I'm not sure if you're read the reviews. Its a great card for high res gaming.
