I paid $499.99 for my 2070 XC Black Edition. Looked up 1080Tis on newegg and they are still over $1K - because of Bitcoin? I guess the 1080Ti might be better than the 2070.

There's a lot of stupid people who pick all their parts our 3-4 months ahead of a build. They get duped by things like this. That's why I always suggest 24 hours at most before purchasing deciding what to buy

not by much like 10-15% like supahos said.. i would have gotten the 2070 but my stores are selling it between 550-600 and i was able to find a 1080ti for 480 used and it seems to be in good shape, temps are really low and haven't had an issue yet

the ti is not 15% better than the 2070, unless you are talking about constant load like 3d modelling
more like 2% better

and when the 2070, even the 2070 super is 2/3 the cost of the 1080ti, the ti has basically no value anymore

if you really want those extra frames, either save up and buy a 2080, or just wait a few more years
