The only problem moving to the 2080 graphics card is the 225 watts from the 180 for the 1080. But I suppose the smart thing to do is bite the bullet and get one, especially if they the 2080 has 50% more power in older games than the 1080 has, that would be a very nice safety factor for flying RF-X that's for sure.

One thing that should be true if the 2080 isn't using any of the parts of it that calculates ray tracing that should lower the power demand so I would expect the 225 watts to be a bit lower in games that don't using ray tracing.
I intend to get a 2080 soon, but like you I am trying to find comparable data on the performance with games/simulators, I guess the 2080 is backwards compatible with software.
