I've built my desktop start of 2016, but due to the price of the GTX980 at that time, and the big investment I was already doing, also the announcement of GTX1080 in the coming months, I decided to buy the cheaper GTX970 and upgrade it at a later stage. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VxbQbX
Time passed and I never did the upgrade, but I'm now looking at upgrading the graphics card, but afraid to do the same mistake I did.
From my readings, going for the new RTX2080 TI means I will have to buy a new 1440p monitor to take full advantage of it. Also read some concerns about the CPU.
I'm looking for opinions, as I've been away from it since 2016 and don't want to spend money on something I won't take advantage of.
I've been looking at the MSI RTX 2080 TI Gaming X trio, and possibly Dell S2417DG monitor.
PS. I'm don't feel the need to go to RTX2080 if there is a better lower option (2070,1660) for my current build, I just don't want to go low again, and regret it later.
