I love Nvidia's apathetic attitude to Linux support. It makes it so much more economical for me every time I need to upgrade my GPU - the mid-upper tier previous generation cards are always available for around the same price as a lower tier current generation card. There is no buyers remorse when the only things I'm missing out on by not going bleeding edge are kernel panics and random reboots.

    My 1080 works well with Linux, and RTX hasn't dropped yet, but I'm an advocate of buying used parts and devices you buy a 2 year old laptop that works pretty much as well as the current gen except you have drivers and firmware updates/fixes and you pay half the price.

    @Hallelouia Do you use CUDA? I returned a 1050 because it was fine for general desktop use and games but I was getting constant crashes for work that I wasn't having pre-upgrade and which went away when I "downgraded" to a 970. I can't justify paying an early adopter premium to be less productive.

    @nathanchere i don't use CUDA.
    my home tower is a entertainment computer if I want to do work I whip out my laptop which fits my working needs better because I have been working and configuring it for a little more than a year video games work fine though.
