    I would not buy the 10 series new anymore, 20 series it is. The secondhand market will have a lot more cards from the 10 series now, very attractive to buy them second hand.

    well, ill try 2080ti. Not impressive under 1080ti. So stay on 10 series for + 1 year. Better prices, excelent results, no burns problem.

    I upgraded from 1080 to 1080ti. Sold my 1080 for 400 and got a new 1080ti for just 650 euro (all gigabyte windforce)

    Pretty good deal imo. I was waiting to get my hands on the 20180ti but the price and not so big gain forced me to this route and i am very happy. Preformance gain from 1080 to 1080ti is pretty big. 30/40 frames in 2d on some games. Now i can upgrade the mobo and cpu before the end of the year. Probably i7 9700k 8 core

    I'd wait until nVidia sorts out the high defect rate of the 20xx series GPU's.

    Hopefully by then prices may come down to more reasonable levels.

    Plus with the Bitcoin crash & mining now taking a back seat, things are looking up for both new & used GPU availability.

    RTX doesn't appear to be ready for prime time, as they are still drastically underperforming whenever ray tracing is enabled.

    Perhaps wait it out if you already have a decent enough GPU such as your GTX 1070, which should get you through until things settle down.

    Oh, did not saw the 2080 problems, looks quite serious.

    The RTX is more of a problem to me, you can not use the RTX functionality (there is nothing that can use the RTX module), and if you could, the real-time performance is rubbish compared to the graphics we are used to. The technology is extremely cool, but it requires to much computing power at this time.
