With a birthday coming up, I'm considering upgrading from my GTX1080 to one of the new RTX3080 cards, whenever it comes out.
My current graphical setup is:
MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon
Intel® Core™ i7-6700K Processor (4x 4.00GHz/8MB L3 Cache)-Intel® Core™ i7-6700K
16 GB [8 GB X2] DDR4-3000 Memory Module-ADATA XPG Z1
Asus ROG Strix NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
Would a simple card swap work for the hardware I have now? Or would I really need to upgrade CPU and motherboard? I'd like to avoid that if I can.
