That's stil a very capable system...the 3080 will deliver a bit more than those two cards can deliver on the one card...avoiding many dual card issues...where SLI does not work it will deliver more than double the perf...

At the time I ran dual Maxwell Titans from that gen....single 3080 beats the scores I got from that setup...and in gaming and RTX stuff etc it is, of course, way ahead...

But of course it depends what you play and what you do with the system...

Wont i run into any bottlenecks considering im putting a new pcie gen 4 into a pcie gen 3 system?
Maybe my cpu will be the bottleneck?

That kind of depends on what resolution you are gaming at but in practical terms...no, not much

I have two rog pg278q at 144hz.
