    It isn't that the 3090 isn't close to being pushed because it very much can and will be pushed for going over 60fps at 1440p~4k. The reason the 3090 isn't worth it for average consumers is because it costs twice as much as a 3080 for a 5-15% performance boost. You're paying for 24GB of GDDR6X memory.

    That said those of us with 3090s either got them because that's what was available or because money wasn't really a question for it lol. The xx60 and xx70 cards will always be the best value. 80 for enthusiasts, titan/90 for crazy people and professional use.

    3080FE is really solid choice if you can get a msrp.
