RTX 2080 and GTX 1080ti

So I've been all over the place shopping for gpu's only to find that the 1080ti's are at least 2x more in price as the msrp. Therefore, I feel it's better to buy an RTX 2080 that is currently going for 400 dollars less than the 1080ti and at least opens up a new tech possibility. Am I seeing something wrong here? Most people keep saying to go for the 1080ti but they're all over 1k dollars..

Id also choose a 2080 over a 1080ti. there are many reasons including price.

Personal opinion... If you're spending $2500 on a computer remove the 7200rpm to add a 970 EVO m.2 2280 ssd for faster boots, get 3200 ram for same price or maybe $20 more. Also if you're going for an air cooler, I'd look for a better case for airflow. Try the Meshify cases by fractal. Other than that you should be good.

I don't think that there's any other possible issues but I could always be wrong.

NVMe vs SATA3 isn't a huge difference in the general space, however if you do things like video editing and huge file transfers you will see gains in those workloads, I agree with flexo that the difference isn't (usually) worth the cost.

However that said, at +2500 of budget and above, I don't feel that HDDs have any place anymore. 2.5 SSDs are far faster and the prices are dropping like rocks. Take for example: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/yzfhP6/samsung-860-evo-1tb-25-solid-state-drive-mz-76e1t0bam The 1TB 860 EVO SSD is now below $130.00 and that price continues to fall. It's honestly only a matter of time before HDDs should only be for the most budget of budget systems.
