This is pretty much comes down to asking for justification on this purchase. Currently, I have my selection set on the 2080 ti but quite frankly the price is getting pretty high. I can most definitely afford a 2080 ti but just wondering about other alternatives that may be a cheaper. I was looking at the 2080 super and it from a little digging around, I found that its not to far spec wise from the 2080 ti. I also found a lot of complaints about the 2080 super, mostly about how the sudden replacement of the original 2080 isnt justified and such and the slight increase in performance from the 2080 to the 2080 super isnt worth the price increase. Found that many would rather pick up the 2080 instead of spending the little extra on the 2080 super. What I want to use one of these cards for is primarily for gaming with some programming, video editing and streaming on the side. any suggestions and feed back on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! Just finished deciding on the same trilemma between 2070S, 2080S and 2080 Ti.

I ended up with a 2080 Super, for these reasons:
  1. Where I'm located, it costs more or less the same as a 2080.
  2. It has way better value than the 2080 Ti.
  3. a 2080 Ti would require me to upgrade my PSU (requires 750W at least, I have 650)
I've seen a lot of benchmarks online and I'm not sure where you get the info that the 2080 Ti is "not too far" from the 2080 Super, I've seen it easily get 20 or more FPS over the 2080 Super in some games at 1440p.

This decision depends entirely on the following:
  • Are you willing to upgrade your PSU if necessary?
  • What do you want to achieve? (1440p@144hz for example?)
  • What is your budget?

I don't know what pricing is like where you are, but in my area the 2080 is "on sale" for about the same price as a 2080 super...the 2080 had a higher price point so it takes a pretty deep cut to make it worthwhile. The TI is just ridiculously more expensive...almost double in Canada; it's stupid lol.

I'm running the 2080 super now and it's a very good card...no way I could justify the TI, but the TI does have significantly more power.

the prices here where im from have a decent price range, around $50-100+ difference, like the 2080 and 2080 super for example. Considering that i am building a new rig as opposed to upgrading my current one, upgrading the psu wouldnt be a problem though i thought a 650W would have been enough. What I am wanting is like you mentioned in your 2nd point, 1440p at 144 frames. As for my budget, i am spending up to $3000 or less on a new rig.

In my area, there arent any sales for GPUS and such, most of the time the GPU shelves in some place are empty, literally. Any kind of shopping I do for those things are online only. Like i said in the reply above, I want to reach 1440p at 144 frames, preferably at max settings. Overall, I am waiting until black friday/cyber monday hits to see if i can catch any sweet sweet deals on one of these cards.
