    You could just pay off your credit card bills.

    TL;DW version:

    1) Yes theyíre expensive, yes they donít offer amazeballs increases in 4K-Ultra performance over 10-series hardware

    2) But somebody has to start somewhere with new tech, rather than the usual incremental improvements

    3) However DLSS might be the low-key game changer here for non-RT titles

    4) But thereís no way to properly test it, since final games with full support are not on the market yet. No Tomb Raider, no BFV, no Metro Exodus. But the Star Wars Reflections demo looks nice on top-tier hardware (at 30fps!).

    Are we finally on the cusp of consumer hardware that can run Toy Story in real time? All it needs is 24fpsÖ

    What I get from most reviews is: if you are RICH, and I mean rich, get the 2080 Ti.
    In any other case, get the 2080, even over 1080 Ti.
    If you don't play 4K, either get a discounted 1080 Ti or wait.

    Just like everything related to PC gaming. Wait and you'll get better stuff for less money.

    Well since Iím planning on building a PC in the very near future, I donít already own a graphics card so a 2070 is a natural entry point.

    If I already owned a 1080 or 1070 Iíd be waiting for cards beyond these.

    I've got a 1080 and I'm definitely in a wait and see mode. I'm happy with the performance right now (though maybe not with the VR stuff), but it also sounds like it's not going to be a huge leap over what I have now, so I don't have a big urge to quite my usual "buy every other generation" cycle.

    I'm still teetering on the fence with it. While the games I play work fine with the 1080, I've always been of the "fuck it, why not?" mindset.

    Considering I spent $700 on the 1080 2 years ago, I don't know if I'm "ready" to drop another $1200 on a new one. I doubt I could get more than $300 out of the 1080 (guy I work with has a son that games a lot, he's got a 1050ti at the moment, I would possibly be able to sell it to him).
