The GeForce RTX 2080 is one of the best graphics cards you can buy, but its high cost keeps it out of the hands of most gamers. Originally debuting at $800, we mostly see RTX 2080s sell for around $680 to $750, with deals occasionally dropping that number to around $630. Today Galax has its RTX 2080 EX card on sale for $589.99—that's the first time we've seen a sub-$600 RTX 2080, and likely the cheapest the card has ever been.

The card is on sale directly through Galax's online store. It has a core clock of 1710 MHz with a one-click OC clock of 1755 MHz. You have to register a Galax account (it's free) in order to purchase, and the card comes with free shipping as well as a free 64GB iDuo Cobra flash drive

While there is a new Super variant of the RTX 2080, the original 2080 is no slouch. It's capable of impressive framerates (~60 fps at 4K ultra in most games), topping the power level of last generation's champion GPU, the GTX 1080 Ti.
