    most people that are shopping buy what they can find, with the current shortage
     
    Budget ?
     
    what do you do with the PC ?
     
    Compare benchmarks to the new cards on the things that interest you

    Once again the need also depends on what resolution you have on your monitor and the refresh rate. If you want to game to 4K at 120 hertz or more then a high end RTX 3080ti or RTX 3090 would work. If your monitor is only pushing 1920 x 1080 then an RTX 3080 or RTX 3070ti should be fine.

    WRONG!!!!!
    In my other posts a member asked which card he should get &  all my serious gamer friends that blew their 30 series cards due to OC too much borrowed my spares which were 1660 which are 8K & 240HZ CERTIFIED & far superior & cheaper than ANY 30 series cards & plays EVERY game out there in 2021. They proved this by putting in my spare 1660s into the same computers that used to have the 30 series cards (which are out for repair/replacement RMA's) & every game that played on their 30 series plays just fine with the 1660s though no ray tracing which they said is no big deal & useless. They all told me that they wasted their money on the 30 series cards when 1660 & up cards (2070s/2080s) work just fine. I have witnessed them playing at max resolution & 240HZ without issues so 30 series are indeed a massive waste of money if you can get 1660s or 20 series at MSRP prices or close to them. :o)
