— For the money, this is hands down the best graphics card out there. $140 easy, for $160 you can find an 8gb version.

Nvidia
GTX 1080-Ti - Good 2 years ago.

— Awesome card, but dated, and too many fan bois that think it's still better than the RTX 2080. And it's over priced. And no Ray Tracing/DLSS.

RTX 2080 - Excellent 2 years ago.
Graphics Cards

— It consistently out performs the 1080 Ti and now has a better price. And it's got Ray Tracing and DLSS.

Intel
Core i7-8086K - Excellent 3 years ago.
Processors

— When it was on sale it was only a tiny bit more than the 8700K, and comes stock with higher default single core speed. Generally overclocks higher without much work too. You have to give it some props for nostalgia too. I mean 40th Anniversary of the 8086. 5+ GHz official speed. People are saying $60-$100 more than 8700K... but when I bought, it was anywhere from $20-$40 more. Which to me is worth it, to them, maybe not. To each their own, but some will pay much higher to have a guaranteed 5GHz clock speed. I can run 5.2 on all cores 24/7 so I'm happy paying extra.

The Best.
