As advertised in the recent CL Black Friday email. Both cards are $1199.

I need a new card for my new 2018 computer system.

I have a i5-8400 CPU and 32GB RAM.

 

Any comments?

I recently got a 2nd hand 1080ti, and have been super happy with it. In saying that, with price being equal I would be getting the 2080 as it beats a 1080ti basically across the board in all gaming scenarios. That is very much assuming of course that this PC is being used for gaming?

Agreed. And $1200 is a pretty good price for either of them.

 

Edit: The only question is whether you get a card at that level, or drop down a level to a 2070 / 1080.

Yeah if I was buying one or the other today I would go for the 2080. It will only get more optimised in the future.

 

How is a 2080 $1200 and the 2080ti is $2200-2400!?

But how does tax affect one significantly more than the other, let alone by that much? I'm guessing the actual reason is a significant difference in sales volume, and that in turn allowing retailers to get away with major price gouging.

I am currently using a 34" 3440x1440 monitor and looking to upgrade at the end of year or early next year. 

The question is whether the 8GB RTX2080 will be sufficient for higher resolutions...

Fair enough, in that case you probably don't want to go down from there.

 

But as to whether it is enough, the real thing is, you can't really go up much from a 2080. Sure, there's the 2080 Ti – for another $1000, giving roughly +30% performance for +80% price. Or SLI, doubling the price and hoping it works (and you can't even drop to the 2070, because it doesn't support it). And anyhow, the reviews I've seen seem to say that it is enough.

Sorry, I meant we have what I call a "NZ Tax". ie We just inexplicably pay more for goods in NZ because we happen to be in NZ.

Before you buy double check on CL site first for stock on hand.

In their fine print the 1 line below has caught me out in the past... got my hopes up high on what was a good deal/price went to their site & stock was at supplier so discount didn't apply. Was very disappointed.

"All Specials and Coupon Codes apply to In-Stock items only. Does not apply to At Supplier."

Well, considering they're listing a specific product they should have several in stock. Listings like that with only one or two in stock (exact quantity dependent on expected demand) would probably be a breach of the Fair Trading Act. But still a good point.

 

I checked their site, and it seems to show 5+ in stock, so it should be all good anyway.
