    Do you think it is worth getting a GTX 1080 at $230 USD / $300 CAD in Nov 2019?
    I'm looking to upgrade from my R9 290X but can't justify getting a new RTX 2xxx at this time due to cost.
    Would I be best to pick up this used GTX 1080 or get something more recent?

    I will be gaming on a 1080/1440p monitor - Apex, League, Overwatch, MH: World
    I eventually want to play on a 144hz monitor.

    If you're open for it (and actually have an AMD GPU), buy a 5700, or 5700XT for that kind of money.

    I just checked what the usual pricing for a 5700 is in canada... that's horrendoes... maybe the 1080 isn't that bad.
