Would a GTX1080 suffice for 4K30 gaming? I know 1080Ti would be better, but the pricing seems to be a huge jump, even if compared to 2nd hand 1080Ti.

You can try SLS, some stores have stocks they over ordered during the cryptocurrency hype. Managed to get a sapphire rx580 4gb cheaper than retail price.

The prices of GTX 1080 were dropped below S$650 during the national day sales.

The prices of 1070 TI also dropping below S$600 now.

Still can't compete with US prices that can drop below S$500 for new 1080s during discounts(ebay 15% etc), if you have friends that can help you access the market then ask them to buy but the downward trend is obvious enough.

The excess stock from the failed mining boom gamble that was pushed down from Nvidia should be floating around 3rd party sellers, they probably gonna get rid of it over this year/next.
now asus 1070 cost $495.

GPU prices are crazy high. A RTX 2070 card cost more than my build!
I'm currently waiting for the rumored super RTX cards and AMD's 7/7 GPU release. Hopefully older GPUs will be cheaper by then.

Looking to play games at mid-high settings at 1440p, should i get the RTX 2060 or would the GTX 1660/Ti be enough to last a few years in terms of hardware specs?

If I can sell my 1060 6GB for 180, is 2nd hand Vega 56 worth it for 300+? Is the upgrade in performance worth 120+? Or should I wait till 2020 GPUs to upgrade?

My old GPU is a Gigabyte GTX 1060 6G (about $450 in 2016), think now age already. Sometime window will restart if screen refreshes too quickly. Look for a similar replacement GPU.

I like the current GPU as in, the fan only spins when bootup and silent during normal operation. Is this the norm for most GPU now? I'm using it mainly to watch video and some light gaming via bluestack. Daily about 5~6 hrs, weekend more.

Any recommendation?
Thanks.
