Even the RTX 3070 will be more than most people will need at 1080p. The RTX 3080 is a seriously powerful 4K card; unless you have a 1080p monitor that refreshes at 240 hz and you want to play everything with all your settings maxed out, yes, its too much.

It depends too be all honest.
Is it too much for 1080p@60FPS? Definitly
Is it too much for 1080p@144FPS? Definitly?
Is it too much for 1080p@240FPS? Well that "might" be a different story.

However there have been quite some points made that the difference between 144 and 240 is barely noticable for "most people" and unless you are a super competitive FPS gamer it's probably worth it more to go 2K@144FPS than 1080p@240FPS

With this card you might consider a 4K screen as well, though from what we've seen in the doom benchmark you can't expect it to go at 4K@144FPS, I think many well optimized titles will work at 4K@100FPS, depending of course if DSLR works on the game.

All in all, I think anyone here will recommend going higher in resolution, rather then going above 144FPS and some will even recommend you going for a 4K screen, either ways monitors have come down a lot in price, where 5 years ago a 2K144FPS monitor was around 1000$/€ now you can start picking them up around 300 for budget models.

The two above replies by Exeonx and RTX 2080 are accurate.

You'd only want the 3080 if you are pushing high refresh rates and maximum graphics on 1080p, for anything bellow 240Hz the 3070 would be more than enough and if you have a 144Hz monitor at 1080p any frame rate over 144FPS is entirely pointless.

Not a terrible future proofing purchase either, unless its 60Hz 1080p, the 2080S or Ti is liable to run 1080p 60Hz maximum on any game for the next half decade, little own a 3080, which by that time the 8060 that'll be a quarter price of the 2080ti will likely be quadrupling its performance.
