animeowns Update I did previously have the pg27uq I do not want to purchase it again as I know the updated pg27uqx model is coming before the end of the year. But I will go ahead and grab a 2nd 2080ti while I Can. I forgot I have a Mbest 1440p korean 165hz monitor $260 on the way I will use that to go along with my C9 Oled I just need to make sure that the evga xc ultra 2 cards will fit on a rampage vi extreme board with a haf x case

the 32 inch model 4k @ 144hz monitors are coming in early 2020 and realtek is working on a dp 1.4 to hdmi 2.1 converter. SO buying the C9 now for me was a good deal and a 2nd 2080ti since I have money to burn atm.

J7SC I have a system with dual 2080 Tis and like it, though it is in part because of a dual work+play role of the setup. Many of the games I play do work fine with SLI, and with the ones which don't, I either try some different NVidia Inspector profiles, or just turn SLI off for that game. That's probably not a strong endorsement of 2080 TI SLI...but I certainly don't see it as disastrous, either, subject to the overall 'cost - benefit - budget' application envelope of the machine.

MistaSparkul At this point I would not bother with either because SLI is a huge waste of money given the few amounts of games that have proper support for it and the Asus PG27UQ/Acer X27 won't be all that useful anymore once nvidia launches an HDMI 2.1 GPU that can take advantage of 4k120Hz on the new LG OLEDs. My Acer X27 has been the best gaming experience since I bought it last year but it's time is almost over and the moment I can get 4k120Hz on an OLED I'm going to sell mine off.

I don't like having bezels triple monitor setup is out of the question and I don't like how ultrawide would have black bars around it if I wanted to watch a movie. This is why I am sticking to 16:9

I've always been an advocate of getting the single fastest GPU you can afford. I never through dual GPUs was worth it, and its even less worth it nowadays. Scaling is pretty poor in most games. You won't be getting near what 2x the performance of a 2080Ti would be.

Get the monitor, which your single 2080 Ti will do a good job of driving (speaking from experience as I currently have one and a X27). Then your monitor will be squared away and you can just focus on upgrading your GPU in subsequent generations. Just my two cents.

this actually makes sense As I sold off my titan rtx and grabbed a 2080ti because the performance was too close to justify the price hike on the titan rtx. I did just get a LG C9 oled and I wouldn't want to always play on a 65 screen. So having that second display around would be like the best of both worlds for me.
