    As title says..

    Would you Upgrade a GTX 1080 to a 2080??

    I run 3 monitors, one 3440x1440 @ 100Hz, a 2560x1440 @ 160Hz and a 4K @ Hz.

    So gaming will be basically at 3 or 4k as they call it.

    All depends on the game, I struggle to get 60fps in some games with a titan xp at 4k. Probably cheaper to find a 2nd hand 1080ti and over clock it for similar performance

    I am about to upgrade 1080Ti to 2080Ti.
    Why? Because I have 4k and VR and the 1080Ti is shit.

    That was sarcasm :) 1080Ti was shit for 4k, but best thing at that time, still shit, yet some people were like "what you mean, it's great 4k card.."

    As for the initial question, if you have money to spend, then it's definitely worth the upgrade if you game on 4k or 3 screens.

    It's also worse than shit for VR. I know the CPU bottlenecks a lot in VR but still, some games barely give me 20fps in the Rift. The Tech isn't good enough yet.
