    Well anyway. You can't really go wrong with either cards here for performance, but the premium you're paying for the RTX card is going towards RT & Tensor cores and DX12U features. You could wait until the new AMD cards comes out in Q3-Q4 if you really want a AMD card that will last you somewhat through Gen.9. Buying a non-RTX card now when Gen 9 is around the corner seems like a bad deal to me, but that's just my opinion though.
    Well..I don't know how the world classifies GPUs these days. The old days were simpler. Now, we have sub-classes in the high-end tier and then there is enthusiast-class.

    I think that person is Japanese. English might not be their first language.

    RoasterMen is fine. <3 It's all good.

    I just recently got into PCs so I don't know how simple it was before, but it's true that there are many tiers and classes within the GPU market. I don't think the world actually have a proper classification system, but now there's like X's, XT's, Titans, Ti's, Supers next to the numerical system. For me, anything that's over $500 MSRP is considered high-end, even if it may not be true. So something like this is how I do classes:

    $100-299 - Low tier
    $300-499 - mid tier
    $500-799 - high tier
    $800-xxx - enthusiast

    I just believe in:

    • Entry level
    • Mid range
    • High end
