Sigh, I soon need to update my PC again, it's been like 5+ years soon and the GPU is really showing it's age, but it's so god damn expensive to hop platform from Z87..

The cheapest 2080 is around 800 Euros with tax in Sweden, I have the money but its hard to justify one month of living expenses for hardware.. And let's not talk about a new platform.. Zzz

@Xian_ Do you really need a 2080? I don't really run into situations where I need more than my RX580

@Matter well, the card needs to be viable to run games I'm 144Hz for several years, and probably 1440p in the future.

@Matter I agree, I don't game much but my RX570 runs everything i need just fine. Maybe get a 5700xt for like half the price of the 2080?

@cavaliertusky @Matter almost the same price in Sweden for both cards, the AMD ones are a really bad value here.

@cavaliertusky @Matter but maybe.. I can wait until Nvidia launches their next series and get a 2080 used.
