Tonight I'm considering placeing my order for this Video card: MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 8GB GDRR6 256-bit VR Ready Graphics Card (RTX 2080 GAMING X TRIO) Yes, I am fully aware that even with my i5 Ivy bridge running with a cool and stable over clock that my CPU is dated and lacking the effeciency and speed of current i5 and i7 CPU's, but I can now get this card for only $600 bucks after tax and with free shipping which would be a good start to my "eventual" MOBO, CPU, and RAM updates. I can afford to do those upgrades after the 1st of the year. The question being is if with my Ivy i5 and 8Gb of DDR3 RAM @ 2133Mhz can I effectivly run my 2K monitor with most in game options set to at least high at full resolution? If not then I will wait until after the 1st to upgrade GPU with a current socket Z rated MOBO and fast DDR4 RAM. Even with 2 GTX660Ti cards in SLI i can not effectivly game with this 2K monitor. In fact now, even with my previous 1080 monitor many games we're below 30FPS at medium settings because my 2 old GTX 660's are ready for retirement. (It's almost a shame I must get rid of my great rock solid old school MSI full ATX Z rated MOBO and 2 DDR3 Gskill RAM sticks because they have been so very reliable.) Also: please offer me any cost effective ideas and potential advice you may have that might be better than what I'm thinking to do now for only $600 bucks. Thanks.
