Upgrading your graphics card can be a daunting experience for any wallet but this MSI RTX 2080 Sea Hawk is currently on sale for £599 over at Overclockers. It's the cheapest we've seen it since the Black Friday sales and, according to the listing, it means a saving of £90. Now, this is the part where we'd usually tell you the true saving is significantly lower but in this case, it isn't. Taking the average historical price into account, you're actually looking at a saving of closer to £160. 

While the RTX 2080 isn't as powerful as the 'Super' edition, there may not be quite as much difference as you'd expect. It has lower clock speeds, less bandwidth, and fewer CUDA cores, but it still boasts the same 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. As with all of Nvidia's RTX cards, you'll still get support for ray tracing and DLSS, providing higher fidelity without the worry of performance falling through the floor.

The MSI RTX 2080 features 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM and full ray tracing and DLSS support for high fidelity images without sacrificing performance.

What really sets this card apart from other RTX 2080 models is the fact that it includes a hybrid cooling solution. That means it also requires more space in your PC case, but temperatures should be much lower, giving you more room to overclock should you desire. It also comes with a healthy factory overclock (1860MHz boost vs. a base 2080's 1710MHz).

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
