    Growing pains for RTX 20 series. Probably feels bad to pay $1200 and have to RMA multiple times.

    Hopefully the 30 series brings better reliability and even better ray tracing to the masses.

    Oh and if it debuts at $1200 as well, there's no way in hell i'm paying for that! LOL

    Maybe a Radeon VII is for you?

    I would imagine we will begin to start seeing REFURBIHSED RTX2080TI soon... once they figure out how to fix all those returned units.... would you buy one, then????

    For the right price with at least a one year warranty, sure. I'm thinking $599 or less.

    1080ti may turn out to be the 2600k of video cards.

    The 1080 Ti will have the legacy of the 8800GTX.

    I agree. Wish I didn't give away my 8800GTX. Also glad I got 2 1080ti hybrid atm. They will allow me to skip over this current gen's fubar.

    8800 GTX was a beast, as is my 1080ti clocked close to 2100 Mhz - it's truly overpowered for 1440p.
