PC gear can be expensive stuff, especially when it’s necessary for things like ray-tracing and a decent frame rate at 4K. The latest generation of graphics cards have upheld that tradition by hovering around $1100, but finally at least one of the higher end cards is dropping to something a fraction more palatable.
The RTX 2080, which has been selling for $1099 for most of the year so far, is getting knocked down to $949 for two days by MSY from tomorrow. It’s currently priced at $1149, which is on the higher end given some models are available for $1020.
The discounted price, which was advertised through MSY’s Facebook page this morning, won’t show the discounted price until tomorrow. You can see that post below.
This is one of the best prices on the RTX 2080, which is good considering the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX Titan are still costing more than what most people spend on their entire gaming PCs. But for those do spend a bit more on their rig, and have been holding onto a 900-series Nvidia GPU or something equally old from AMD, this is one of the better deals.
It’s especially well timed given the Radeon 7, which is competing directly with the RTX 2080, is going for at least $1099. You’d probably still prefer the Radeon 7 if you’re doing any graphical work outside of playing games. But for those who just care about a high frame rate, $949 is the best deal so far. (Note that if you do grab a Galax-branded RTX card, you’ll also be able to redeem the purchase for a free Anthem or Battlefield 5 code here.)
