im good aha, the rtx has less vram and has many issues apparently
btw what does this mean
  • The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled.
It was the higher end RTX cards (2080/ti) that were experiencing issues but with the newer cards it appears those issues are fixed. The RTX 2080 has 8gb of vram which is the same as the 1070 ti.

So all that message means is that when you have a M.2 SSD plugged into the motherboard then one of the SATA Data ports is disabled. The motherboard you picked (good choice) has 6 which is usually more then enough for most people so when you add a M.2 SSD then you have 5 SATA data ports.
