I would reccomend GTX 1050
Imo the 2070 s is more worth it as, the price difference is larger but the performance difference is small

Wait for the sake of 6 month you will save £400 for same performance...

Depends if your playing 4K even the 2080ti can’t hit everything on ultra at steady 60fps never mind higher fps...
I really would wait purely because of the newer consoles releasing later this year. Better off getting a newer card that will last longer. You’ve waited this long so a few months is nothing really.
Sit further away from the screen and drop the settings down to achieve any FPS goals.
Money saved
I'm doing a new build, most of the stuff is coming on Fri, I can use the Gtx 680 for 6 months
If you have the budget for it and you want it for its performance, go for it. Waiting may get you a better card in 6-9 months time (no firm details on release of next-gen cards), but there is no guarantee it will cost less than the 2080Ti.
A lot of people were disappointed when the 2080Ti was released in 2018, it did not cost near the £700 mark the 1080Ti did but in fact 50% more despite only serving around an extra 30% on average more than 18 months after the 1080Ti release.
AMD does not have a competitive product against the 2080Ti, so I think Nvidia is going to push the price bracket up to £1500+. Plenty of demand for their high-end cards and practically no competition at the high-end for now will allow Nvidia to dictate prices, just as they have this generation.
Good luck with the build
Am considering the 2070 super for £400 now.

Lol bit of a difference between top of the range and a mid range card, but more budget friendly, specially if it’s only 1080p

Keep reading it does well in 4K 60fps tho

But the settings won’t be high, you will be playing medium settings and when new cards come out you will have to lower again. Most modern card will do 4K at lower settings and frame rate. It depends what you want. The 2080ti doesn’t hit 4K on ultra at 60fps in all games...
Pick your budget and decide what you want out of the pc, personally I wouldn’t buy any card under the 2080ti, but I understand people have budgets...

Something like a 5700 XT at £312 hotukdeals.com/dea…030 might be a good shout to keep you going till the new 2020 cards are released.

Considering The Xbox Series X is using a 12TFLOP SoC based on Navi 2, I hope we will see some good competition in the PC space this year.
The main reason am looking at 2070, is to wait out the 6 months for the new gfx card line.

Yep, I'm thinking the console chips are likely AMD's focus right now and so expecting a high-end Navi part Q4 or Q1 2021. Really hoping for a competitive card from AMD at the high-end, would be a massive blow for consumers if Nvidia price bump with their next-gen and it sticks.

Yeah i'm sitting with a 2060 ATM but looking to upgrade my 1440p monitor to 4k this year so will really need a new card to go with it.

Yeah and the 5700 XT will do just that and is cheaper than a 2070 Super for about the same performance.

You won't be going wrong with a 2070 Super or a 5700 XT for 1440p gaming - they're about 3x the performance of the 680. But you will likely have to make a fair few graphical compromises if you want to game at 4K. Minimum I would go for is the 2080 Super as it come close to the 2080 Ti (within 15-20%) but at roughly 40% lower price and you will make fewer graphical compromises.
If £600 is too much for a holding card, you could go the route of a used 1080 Ti from Cex (£480) - but used cards have their own risks.
I got 4k LG monitor, Yeh my 680 Gtx can't do 4k tho but Ps4 pro it's fine
I bought one a week ago and it blew me away from a 2070, if you want the best, buy it. 1080ti are still 600-700 quid now?
