Took the plunge. Bought an RTX 2080.

As much as I want to off myself for buying a GPU for a build I don't even plan on finishing/starting until January, a basically brand new 2080 for $400 seemed like an obvious no brainer. Hopefully my bank account understands.

$400 is an absolute steal

I thought so too. Cheapest I was seeing was about $580 for refurbs.

Seems a solid price, more so if brand new. Would however test it before January if you can, likely will be no problems, but at least if it has an issue now, can get is sorted within exchange window.

As far as I can tell it runs perfectly fine. No problems as of yet, only has a couple scratches on it. It's complete overkill for my current build, but might as well use it while I've got it.

Why does it have scratch's on it? just realised you said almost brand new, so is it second hand?

Not sure, but they're just surface scratches. Yes, bought it off of someone that ended up getting a 2080 Ti.

Now lets hope that the new GPU you have isn't shackled behind a 1080p screen lol. The poor screen won't be able to keep up with the GPU!

Oh it isn't. It kills on 1440p, also have a 4K TV I might try it with.

I hope you did not buy a refurbished card the warranty will probably be out by the time you build and the card has already failed one time.
