The 2080 is the same price, more or less, than the 1080ti, is more futureproof, and does a bit better. If you're buying now, buying the 1080ti makes no sense.

As for you, do you routinely buy a new graphics card every year? You have the most powerful of the last generation. How many people actually buy a new card every gen? Did you also have a 980ti? Most people wait at least 2, if not 3, if not 4 or even 5 generations to upgrade. Unless you're demanding 4k or VR, 3 seems to be the sweet spot.

Past 10 yr roadmap for me has been 7600gt > 8800gt > SLI 8800gt (got 2nd for free) > GTX480 > 980TI (current).

No regrets and still no reason to upgrade, personally. Maybe if I had a VR kit I would feel a bit more compelled. > 2x performance boost at a decent price is really all I bite for, and all my cards have been purchased new for under $400. Upgrading every year seems crazy to me.

If I recall, and I don't, my full list is (and this is more to see if I remember than me thinking anyone cares):

S3 Virge -> Canopus Pure 3D II -> GeForce 3 -> ATI 9800 Pro (got for free) -> ATI x850xtpe -> Sparkle GTX480 -> Gigabyte 970 XTREME Gaming

I do all my gaming in 1080, either on my 16:10 monitor or my HDTV, so I won't upgrade for a while. I'll move to a 4K TV in 2 years, and would expect this rig to last just fine till then. The CPU, which I skimped on, is still "tier 1" on Tom's Guide's Hierarchy. Figure in 2020 we'll get some 10nm processors that make the upgrade worth it. Till then, stuff still runs really well in 1080p.
