I have a RTX3080 and play games at 1440p. My lowest fps I get is 166fps on a AAA game at max settings and every bell and whistle I can check off. I honestly paid $1100 for it at the beginning of the pillage and plundering of the release. That is about my tolerance level for the 4000 release. So I don't have to buy this time around. I grew up in the 80's and remember well the recession then. Guess what, people still spent money on things they wanted and got car and home loans when the interest rates were between 18% and 10% at the end. People will still buy the new release, but with more belly aching about prices.
