Processor - Intel core i7 9700k 8 cores @ 5.0GHz
GPU - Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition 8GB

What's your monitor and resolution? The 1080 is still great for 1080p and good for 1440p gaming. I think you could get another year out of it.

Your card is still more than powerful, you should buy a console if you want, your PC will run any game well at 1080p/1440p for a few years. I wouldn't worry about an upgrade. You should wait until the next skew of NVIDIA GPUs come out which might be in two years or so.

Actually, the new generation of NVIDIA cards is expected this year. We should see new cards (possible an RTX3080 and RTX3070) in the second half of this year. But I would wait for those at least. There are rumors of decent performance boost at lower prices due to the new AMD competition. The big Navi (which will for sure beat the RTX 2080 Super and maybe even the RXT 2080 Ti) is expected and confirmed for this year as well.
