I don't think anyone who buys a video card under 800-700 bucks should expect quality gaming over 1080p.
My god how the times have changed.
Also looking back at some benchmarks, this performance tier is roughly that of a 1080ti, which you can also get at about the same price (250). I wish there was just one tier of GPU, and extended hardware support without having to handle all these SKUs. Imagine how much e-waste would be prevented.
Hey man, I know. It hurts me to say that, lol. PC gaming is almost officially, a rich kids
hobbie. I sure as hell know growing up, I would have never been able to afford the prices graphic cards are these days. When I was, 300 bucks was like, sell my liver, but it got me if I recall a BFG Nvidia 6800GT. At that time, it was one of the top if not the top of the line card.
Now the struggle has to be real for kids if they want to dive into the very best components.
