So with ALLLLLL the stuff that's come out and the problems and fixes and so forth which of the available models of both the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are the "one's you want"?
(This is not a question of whether the RTX 3080 or 3090 is a better choice to buy just to clarify)

I think if I had the money for these, I'd most likely strive for something from Gigabyte, MSI, ASUS or EVGA, running at stock speeds, and I'd try to evade INNO, Zotac and overclocked GPUs, but this is just an opinion of mine, based on impressions and some personal experience, nothing really sharp or special about it - all brands are capable and I am not a specialist. The cheapest one can be the best deal, regardless of branding - it's not like buying a PSU.
Oh, and before buying a specific GPU, it is good to check over the net and ask about if it has coil whine. It can be a bit irritating if you have sharp hearing and in some brands tends to be more often.

I dont really care for the 3090 but for the 3080, my choice would be asus tuf 3080 if we're talking about performance. If we're talking about aesthetics, come on it's gotta be the FE.

Why do you dislike the 3090? Did you see the Gamers Nexus review of that Asus? Apparently the fans are a pain to replace compared to what it should be.
