Building a new ryzen system and trying to decide on buying the GPU now or wait till the next Nvidia's hit the shelves.
Looking at a 2070 Super, ain't cheap and don't see prices coming down much later on.

I'm thinking with "shut-down 2.0" lurking around the corner, buying now might be best. Thoughts?

Check second hand first, I just scored a Radeon 5700 for $240 locally. Came with the original box and dust covers on the pcie slot and ports even!

Wait until the new Nvidia and AMD GPUs are out to see how that affects the market. I tend to buy every 3-4 years or so but typically not because I need to.

I only replaced my 1080 (That I bought when it came out) with a 1080ti (06/2018) because I got back from a 8 month long deployment at a bare base overseas and my friend wanted a new video card as well. I'm still using it and it does what I need with everything maxed at 2560x1440 on my 144hz gsync monitor.

Saying that I've been eyeing an ultrawide monitor and I may upgrade my 6700k to a ryzen end of this year and I don't lower my graphics settings and I don't game at 60hz so I'll likely get the newest Nvidia GPU as long as the price isn't too crazy.

Supposedly the Nvidia GPUs coming out would be 80% faster than a regular 1080 and DLSS 2.0 may be worth it if you game at high resolutions.

Yeah, will be checking 2nd hand, craiglist, fb marketplace and etc.

Currently have a 1050ti which with a Ryzen 3700x I don't how far I would get with it gaming at 1080p.
Wanting to play games like Strange Brigade, Madden 21, BattleFront 1-2, Titanfall 1-2.
