    So I am in the middle of upgrading my rig, just got a new 1tb m.2 drive for expansion, new keyboard and mouse and my new Acer Nitro 27'' 1440p 144Hz monitor. I actually ordered an RTX 2080 but it was defective and had to return it immediately. I am upgrading from a GTX 690 and looking for 1440p 144Hz gaming. I know I most definitely won't be able to achieve that sort of max fps in most games at ultra or all high settings in most games, but I'd like smooth/fluid gameplay if possible with high frames for once, been awhile. So in saying all that what GPU should I invest in.

    1) RTX 2070 Super - Is this card powerful enough for a really smooth 1440p gaming experience, this is the least GPU I would want to go for now, I won't be upgrading to 4K anytime soon so I'd want it to last me a couple of years, maybe 2-3 for 1440p.

    2) RTX 2080 Super - This is the card I think makes the most sense, more expensive then the 2070S, but gives a bit more future-proofing, if that's even a thing, and definitely a lot less expensive then the 2080 ti. But do I spend the extra couple hundred for this one over 2070S?

    3) RTX 2080 Ti - Just go all the way in terms of future-proofing for the next 3-5 years, definitely at 1440p. I could do some kind of financial plan and pay it off the easier way. I also do video editing/rendering and stuff like that as well.

    Current comp specs:
    i7-5820K @4.4GHz
    16GB DDR4 2400
    Corsair AX850 Platinum Certified
    EVGA X99-A

    I would go for the 2070 Super now, then sell it later this year and buy a 3070.

    Seeing as 2080 are not all that available, I'd say go with 2070 super and upgrade when 3xxx come out. 2080ti is way overpriced for what it offers.

    I have a 2080, which is a touch faster than the 2070 super and it games really well. I have a 1440p/165hz monitor.

    £450 for a 2070 super, then sell it for £300 when 3080 come out, add some £400 to the £300 you have from the sale of 2070 super and you have a card that will piss all over the 2080ti that would cost £1100+

    There is also a RX5700XT beside nvidia offerings. Its the same performance as 2070Super being 100$ cheaper you can put that towards more/faster system ram or something else.

    Get a used 1080 ti if you can find a good deal. It beats the 2070 super in almost everything. Unless you really want RTX.

    So either 1080 ti/2070S for now and resell in like 6 months for a 3070, not a bad idea.

    If the 3000 series gpu's are indeed significantly faster than the 2000 series, used 2000 sries used prices should drop even further.
