@tsunami231 Bro you've been around as long as I have so please trust me when I say this. People that hate on DLSS are full of it. DLSS has come a long way and it is the best upscaling tech out there. I have multiple titles that look better with DLSS when compared to native resolution. Add in DLAA tweaks with the additional framerates at max settings.......my goodness! The 4090 can breeze through the majority of my games without DLSS but, many times I still use it because of the added enhancements that can be taxing. Sometimes I will enhance the textures, lighting, shadows and upscale 5k through 8k. DLSS and DSR makes this possible. Don't listen to the negative users and flag wavers. Remember when so many people where pissing on Frame Generation? People get salty when they can't have a benefit others are enjoying. Now that everyone can enjoy Frame Generation, all of the sudden it's cool. If $500 is your limit don't count out the 7800xt. When Blackwell is released that may bring down the 4070TI even further.
