    And here:

    https://www.anandtech.com/print/13762/nvidia-geforce-rtx-2060-founders-edition-6gb-review

    "Like the RTX 2070, the RTX 2060 (6GB) is less suited as an option for most high-end GTX 10 series owners, and with 6GB VRAM as it’s a little less tempting than it could be as a move up from the GTX 1060 6GB or GTX 980 Ti. The card offers known performance along the lines of the GTX 1070 Ti and at very similar power consumption, but brings better value than existing higher-end RTX 20 series models. And this time, there’s less of a spoiler effect from older Pascal models."

    My impressions is that RTX 2060 is placed between 1070 Ti and GTX 1080 - actually not bad. Main issue may be the 6GB:

    " The caveat is on the 6GB framebuffer, keeping in mind that the 4GB GTX 980 and 970 now punch below their weight in certain games, given the trends of HDR, HD texture packs, high-refresh rates, and more." (also from Anandtech)
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz gpu boost, 11 GHz mem speed); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1 - the latter nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

    Yeah from reviews I have seen reviews that basically say the 2060 is roughly 50% more performance than 1060. (Without RTX) and is close to 1080 performance.

    There have been many fun things since last week with stock changing status and stuff that I won't go over here.
    But... I got an email yesterday saying there's an MSI Gaming X Trio waiting for me at the store! Shame they told me 45min before the store closed. So I'm going in about 9 hours to get it.

    There goes any hope of a Geforce GTX 11 having the performance of a Geforce 2080Ti without RTX. Just a dream of mine I guess, but I'm still not paying £1000 plus for a Graphics card, ever. Well maybe if I win the lottery or come into some money, but those odds aren't great..

    2080TI's are in VERY short supply here. Only some cheaper default clocked ones I don't trust are around. Good models with tested cooling systems like MSI and EVGA are rare (not just at my local store, but anywhere in Aus that I look). I could get a 2080 pretty easily, just not a good model of 2080TI.

    MSI 2080TI Gaming X Trio plugged in and drivers installing.
    Damn it's big. I'll need to remove it if I ever want to change sata cables.

    It also uses 3 power cables (2 x 8 pin and 1 x 6 pin).

    At the moment I'm down a monitor. I've been running with an Acer Predator 27" and a Dell 22". The Dell is DVI and I use it in portrait mode for security camera footage (top half) and media stuff (youtube or spotify on the bottom while doing other stuff). But the 2080ti doesn't have dvi ports and I can't find my old display port to dvi adapter (it was for my old Radeon with eyefinity, I had 3 dell 22" monitors but only 2 dvi ports).
    So for now I'm stuck on one monitor (which is going to drive me crazy very quickly).

    It was $2099au ($1501us) base price. I had to pay a little more due to 1.5% charge for using a credit card (no way my eftpos would accept that much and didn't feel like getting cash out. It was only $31 extra).
    Other australian stores are charging up to $2230au for it (but don't have any in stock).

    It is a monster and get a 4k monitor plugged in and start checking things out. It's a bloody awesome beast !!!

    Normally I don't use a monitor, I just turn on the rig - wait a few seconds (to be sure OTT is up and more) - put on Touch and then the Rift  B)

    Monitor? - isn't that something Grandma & Grandpa used when they were young?

    Found my display port to dvi adapter. Back to two monitors!
    I really need to buy a new one or two, but I'm very fussy about monitors.

    Plus, in the same mess of cables as the adapter I found a 4.6m (15ft) usb2 extension cable. Where the hell did that come from? I'm sure I've never owned one that long. I wonder if it works with a rift sensor?

     Just ordered a Gigabyte GTX 1080ti 11GB card for my new Ryzen build. I haven't spent over $500 on a graphics card since I ordered the Gainward Bliss 7850GS+ from Germany in the final days of AGP. The 7950GT I have in my old legacy PC, is the last Nvidia card I owned. Mostly because Tridef 3D works better with ATI/AMD cards. 
     Not the best time to have to buy a graphics card. I picked it up refurbished on ebay for $569. Refurbished has always been good to me.

    Umart (my preferred store) now has the EVGA 2080TI Black Edition Gaming for $1699au and it's in stock. That's the cheapest 2080TI I can remember seeing in Aus ($400 cheaper than my MSI).

    The $1699au would be equivalent to 945 pounds.
    I've never heard of a Palit brand gfx card before.

    My previous 1080 was a palit, solid as houses mate, they been about for a while.

    I just installed Q2VKPT.  http://brechpunkt.de/q2vkpt
    It's a fully path traced version of Quake 2 using Vulkan's raytracing support for the RTX chips.
    I'm getting 55.6fps at 2560x1440.
    95fps at 1920x1080.
    That's not bad for a first gen RTX product I guess.

    It's doing an average of around 4 rays per pixel.

    I think they missed a trick... they could have got the Actor/Producer Ray Tracey to promote these cards.

    I should work in advertising

    I normally only spend £250 to £300 for a GPU, I currently have a GTX 1060 6GB and it runs all my games and VR and only cost £250 when they were cheap before prices went up.

    I saw some people say in previous pages of this thread that they considering moving to PS4 or waiting or PS5 and dropping PC gaming altogether due to Nvidias prices but I think that's just ridiculous. I think there is no issue, you can build a PC pretty cheap and spend whatever you can afford. Nobody makes you spend £1000 on a GPU, I would never normally spend over £300 unless I got a bonus at work or came into someone money. 

    Nvidia make good cards, they are expensive at the high end but GTX 1060 6GB is the way to go on a budget imo.
