Greetings.

I'm thinking of building another PC. This time with Ryzen 7 1800x. My question is what is the perfect match of GPU for this CPU? I was thinking a GTX 1080. But I am not so sure, I want the best option here. Any suggestions is appreciated!

Thank you.
 
The RTX 2060 is faster and cheaper than the GTX 1070 Ti and it has the new RTX Tensor cores. The RTX 2080 is about the same as the GTX 1080 Ti, except again it costs less because the 1080 Ti is not really available anymore except for a few exceptions. But again, the 2080 comes with the RTX Tensor cores for when you want to use them.

RTX 20 series is better than some may think. I would say you should get either the RTX 2060, 2070, or 2080.

Yeah you should definitely go for a 2700X. Its cost is very similar and in some cases less than the 1800X.
Recommendations for 2700X:
I'd say a GTX 1080 Ti would be good, maybe a 1070 Ti (both of which are best for 1440p gaming.)
If you want to save money by playing at 1080p, you should get a 1060 6GB
If you want 4K, then 1080 Ti is a must.
I didn't include AMD cards because I am not very familiar with them.

Taking costs into account, I would reccommend the 1070 Ti more because it is so much cheaper than the 1080 ti.

That is a good point actually. I am currently using a Samsung SyncMaster SA350 "1920x1080". But I will eventually go over to ASUS MG248QR "also 1080" 144hz 1ms.

The 2700X sounds really interesting, I didn't know of this CPU until now lol. But thank you guys. I want as little bottleneck as possible. I know there will always be a slight one, but I want it close to nothing, if you get me. 1080 I've heard so much good about that card, it's interesting.

Well if your display is 1080p, then go for the 1060 6GB for sure.
If you really want performance, a 1070 Ti won't hurt for a 144 Hz monitor.

Personally, I recommend buying only EVGA cards.

1070 hmm I see. I usually go for ASUS, I find them reliable, sure the fans are loud, but they get the job done. What do you think about the 2000 series? Probably not a good idea considering bottleneck might occurr. But the 1070 sounds nice though.

I don't think the 20 series is worth it. The technology that they were designed for isn't worth the extra price. If you really want ray tracing, then get the 2070. The 2080 and 2060 are both overpriced for what they are. I don't think the Ryzen 7 2700X will bottleneck the 20 series (at least up to the 2070), but I may be wrong. It is a very good processor. I don't have an issue with ASUS products, it's just that they don't have good customer support.

Note: Make sure you buy 1070 Ti and not 1070 there is a large difference.
