Next gen will bring some really interesting mid-range options in my opinion.

NV will have RTX on Gen 2, AMD will have the same RTRT as the consoles.

Oh and if anyone gives a poop...

If the 2080 was new, I would have picked it over the rest.

The price difference for the loss of warranty wasn't worth it, after looking at the 'card' options, I did object to the MSI card model, and if those options were static. I should have explained further and more concretely that if those were the options, I'd go with the 2070 Super.

Oh and... Yeah I'll rag on the Reddit, Chrome and NV day, every day... When AMD gives me a reason, I will too. Like their chipset driver installer, misspelling 'boost' as 'bosst' in every pane and graphic, doesn't exactly inspire confidence. I think AMD royally screwed up the Radeon VII(should be V2 not '7'), they shouldn't have pushed it as some pure power gaming card, but them opening the Pro drivers to install on basically everything GCN forward, was a cool move. The lack of AMD addressing Navi's OpenCL issue, is a bother I can't seem to find anything concrete on if it was just a driver bug or if it's a hardware fault. The AMD drivers should for the love of all that's nice and good, allow you to choose if you want their overlay and encoder stuff to install, it's really annoying that it just bulls ahead with it. AMD should have stuck clock ramping into the drivers ages ago. Oh and grr... The AMD chipset drivers made my 2700 go from single core equality with a 7700K in the CPU-Z bench to sitting 100pts behind it. Guess I'll be figuring out if that's from a bios update or the chipset drivers.

Still that R9 290 staying power, though that 8GB(a few 290x models and the 390 refresh) vmem that seemed pointless back in the day is certainly paying out now.

Well, we won't mention that, especially since OP bought his nephew a sweet 2070 Super.
