    2080 and 1080 Ti are about equal unless you intend to use RayTracing, then a 2080 Ti would be best. Without RT the 1080 Ti would be most cost effective.

    Is the RTX 2080ti an overkill for 2K gaming?

    Hi charitos89

    It's not overkill if your 1440p monitor is 120Hz/144Hz/165Hz.

    Personally I feel RTX2080 will be enough, but if you have extra dough, doesnt hurt to get the RTX2080ti
