    Buying a 1080 is impossible now (FUCKING MINERS) and as for the 2080 it's full of scammers on amazon and ebay so buy at your own risk. All that's left is stores which sell the 2080 for around 1000€ with no sign of 1080's anywhere in stores.......guess ill wait for the 2180 or 3080 series to buy a new gpu at a decent price because when you're making around 14000€ a year spending 1000 on a gpu is not an option. Mining destroyed the gaming experience for me, good thing i bought a 1060 just before all that mining debacle started (like literally after 10 days that i bought that 1060 the price went up by 100 euro) so no gaming on ultra for me for a year or 2 until these prices start to make sense.

    Any tips on upgrading GPU it this age where everything is just... marginally better than cards 3 years ago.

    I have R7 370 4GB OC Strix that runs quite well in 1080p, but is struggling to keep up with new games... but. I recall that I paid 200€ for the 370 back in 2017 and looking at the new cards in same price range now, there is not much of an improvement. The heck I'm suppose to do? Going for 500€ range feels stupid, since the added value by performance just gets worse.

    Casual gaming at 1080p and steady 30-60fps is enough for me so buying a overkill vega 64 OC would just be too much.

    What happened? It's like gamers are forced to buy "flagships" and rest of the consumers are just completely ignored or scammed to get "next gen" that is actually same as before.
