    Not.
    There's too much turmoil right now.  Let things settle out a bit.

    At this time, no. Wait until you have better options.
    When better options are available, you will have better choices, and existing choices will be cheaper.
    You said that your current GPU is working well. Keep using it. No-brainer.

    What's you pc specs..I cant see your sig.

    I think if you have a 2060 already there is little advantage..and your cpu may be a bottleneck and not even be able to take advantage of an upgrade. Secondly. With a 2060 I'd want until the 20gb 3080ti comes out for the cost to be worth the upgrade. I have a 2080 super and can only see it worth the extra ram in the 20gb 3080 to yet to be announced next year or the current 24gb 3090.

    I wouldn't rush buy something when I know later on I'll always wonder if I should have gotten the better one.

    I think on the off chance that you have a 2060 as of now there is little advantage..and your central processor might be a bottleneck and not have the option to exploit a redesign.  
     
    Thanks

    He's playing at 1440; the CPU he has now might cost him 5-7 frames under heavy workload. Hardly a bottleneck.
     
    But yes, now is a terrible time to buy a card. Wait until you see what AMD's launch looks like and NVIDIAs response to it.

    too late i bought a 2080 ti xc off the b stock for 699 sold my 2060 2 days later for 225 so i got a 2080 ti for what 474 dollars and its rockin call of duty and red dead redemtion. so ill have a good time with that until all new cards are plentiful.

    Oof. I am not sure that was such a great idea. But I guess you were impatient.

    The RTX 3070 pretty much matches the 2080 Ti, is cheaper, and your end cost would have been $275 for roughly the same performance.

    Like I said, your current card satisfied your needs, and better options were coming. I don't know why you suddenly had the impulse. What's done is done.

    Your 2080 TI is equivalent of the 3070.  I would wait to see if Nvidia responds to AMD's latest releases.  There may be a 3080TI or Super 3080...which may change the game a bit...
