Hey guys I have not been simming for about 2 months now as I have been transitioning overseas with a big move and my pc is in a container atm 😭.

my question is I have I9900k with m2 ssd etc 

With a 1080ti msi lighting z

Should I go for a 3080ti or 3070ti? For a 2k monitor. Samsung 

Thanks.

@mikeymike, I have removed your duplicated posts. I find the 1080Ti is fine for v5.3 and I’m running at 4K.

I’m moving this to the video section in the Hardware forum.

Interesting I might wait for the 4 series.

i am wanting to crank up the AA settings to 8xssaa on my 2k monitor which makes things really sharp.Thou it cripples performance in heavy weather on my 1080ti

works quite well with 4xssaa but the jaggies still remain.

 

cheers

That`s one thing that help`s 4K you don`t ssaa settings, your 4x the 1080p.

And 4K will be more common in the future.

Nice monitor ,

what’s the consensus on the AMD 6900xt?

Think ide be able increase the SSAA setting to 8x on a 2k monitor. With complex

scenery aircraft and weather.

thanks

The days of cheaper AMD have gone as they no longer need to.

AMD just proved they're not your friend - YouTube

You may need a mortgage. 😁 I suspect that now graphics card manufacturers have upped the price, they will hang on to those high prices with all their might.
