I got a promotion at my job and to celebrate I'm buying myself a new gaming rig. My budget is about $2500 and I've chosen a Ryzen 3700x build with primarily MSI components so all the RGB can talk to each other. The one outstanding issue is the case vs. video card. I want an RTX 2080 card, but the things are so damn huge none of the cases I like can fit them properly. The 2070 comes in much more reasonable form factors, under 300mm in length. My main questions are, would I notice a performance difference between a 2070 and a 2080 using a 2k monitor for gaming with most modern titles? If so is that difference in your opinion worth the extra $200 and having to go with a larger case?

No, you most likely won't actually notice a difference at that low of a resolution. If you get a VR headset there will be a notice but both of those cards are overkill for most VR titles out currently.

Also, I'm assuming you mean just normal 1920, 1080.

Even though I'm trying to go deep on this build I don't wanna piss money away, and if I can save some on the card I can put that money back into a real nice monitor and speakers and stuff.

2060 super would be fine for 1440p@60 FPS, but for a 100hz+ panel you'd want a 2070 super to keep the frames high. IIRC there should be 2080 or 2080 super models under 300mm. Did you check out the EVGA lineup?

I didn't, I was looking exclusively at MSI. Does EVGA have some glowy 2080 cards that work with MSI's RGB controller? I thought most manufacturers were proprietary.

You'd have to check if the GPUs have RGB or not, but I know most brands have their own RGB software to control the lighting. ASUS has it's own and Gigabyte does as well.

Yeah looks like they have their own software for it. That's kind of a deal breaker because I really want all the lights to be in sync using the same software. Having to juggle multiple control panels for my lighting is going to get real old real fast.

That thing looks so heckin cool to me, but I would have to pull front fans to use the 2080 MSI makes.

2k is pretty old, so it shouldn't be a problem. If you were using 2560x1440, though, or 4k, you'd probably see a difference.
