    Looks good but the average price of the mid-priced card, the RTX 2080, is £800.

    I seriously would not spend that much on a graphics card.

    Give it a year or three though and no doubt they'll become affordable.

    That is crazy expensive!!! If graphics card prices continue to inflate, it'll just push the next generation of gamers over to consoles.

    Don't forget that if they follow the same pattern of the previous generation, they are likely to bring out a RTX 2060 and RTX 2050 card at some point in the future too ;) If they do this, I'd definitely be interested :D

    The real time ray tracing really does make a difference doesn't it? Check out this video showcasing it in action with Shadow of the Tomb Raider:



    It just looks so real! The way the light affects objects, the way the shadows respond, it's incredible :bow:

    I've always loved the Tomb Raider series, and now this game looks on par with that "Last of Us" game I recently saw a trailer for :drool::thumb:
