Question 3070 Ti for 1300USD?


Jul 7, 2016
Hey guys, I currently have a GTX 1080 that I had for the past 4-5 years or so. It has finally started to show some artifacting issues which made it impossible to overclock it and get that extra performance on heavy games like MSFS, Hunt Showdown etc. I now run it a bit underclocked and experience no real artifacting issues w/ it.For context, I live in Brazil and things are highly taxed, so getting USA-level deals over here is next to impossible. Whilst contemplating an upgrade to my PC I went to search up some GPU's and found a 3070 Ti for 1300USD. I know that is every price is inflated due to the outage and imo they won't go down anytime soon. That being said, given current prices is it worth the money for the performance it brings? For reference, here are some other gpu prices I've found on brazilian marketplaces so there's a bit of context as to the pricing levels over here. Thanks guys.

Palit NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 StormX - 920 USD

Palit NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 GamingPro LHR - 1334 USD

Palit NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GamingPro - 2039 USD

Zotac NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti TRINITY LHR - 1311 USD

Also, I currently have a 144hz 1080p monitor, so I'm not looking to game in 4k or whatever.

Those price about same I seeing too only most of time the nicer cards no in stocks. Oddly I find AMD cards more available and priced a little better so strange when you might expect opposite. Recently had to replace a dead gpu and paid $850 for 6700xt. Would have consider the 3070 but price about $1400 at time and nobody had in stocks so save a little money. If you can wait thats best but if not then pricing is sign of times we are in :)
