    Question Graphics card upgrade

    I currently have a 3070 paired up with a 3700x. Looking to upgrade something since now where I live graphics card prices have come way down. I can get a 3080 for like 850$ than I’d sell my 3070 so I wouldn’t be spending much. Would I see a difference between the 3070 and 3080 or a 6800xt?
