So my specs are on my sig.

I don't plan on changing anything other than the graphics, I still can run anything 60+FPS @ 1080p, wich is the resolution that I'll be keeping for a good few years (likely). Anyways, for a bit of leverage, and some more fps to catch up with my monitor's 144hz eyecandy, I was considering something like the RTX 2070, 2080 and up would be overkill (and overpriced too)

Of course there's a 'but', I could go for like a 1080, but thats obsolete tech, while RT haven't proved itself one can only expect that if sorta-ish must run on a high-end-ish 2070..

insights?

I personally wouldnt buy a GTX1080 over an RTX2070 unless it was quiet a bit cheaper for the reasons you have mentioned.

If you are gaming at 1080p a RTX2060 will do you fine.

Yeah, i'm still skeptical as it can be clearly told.

The 1080 is substantially cheaper than the 2070 for me, but its also going for the same price of a 2060 and is about 15% faster than it, though its nonetheless 'old' tech without the RT thingy wich is also the big '?'

regardless, the 2060 is 40% faster right off the bat than the 980, so a brawl between the 2060 and the 1080 is to be considered...

The RTX2060 will do ray tracing well at 1080p so you will benefit from that going forward.

I know not a lot out there at the moment implements it, but in 2-3 yrs are you going to regret not having it? Maybe.

The RTX cards also have DLSS - https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/everything-you-need-to-know-about-nvidias-rtx-dlss-technology/

thats one thing i didnt knew, for what Ive found around doing my own (small) researche, the 2080ti itself struggles with keeping 1080p @60fps with RT, so it had me worried and begged the question, why would they even add RT cores to a GPU that will obviously not be able to run with RT on.

but then again, if its there it IS supposed to work.

I guess it narrows down my decision between a 2060 and 2070.
