1080Ti, and sticking with it until I build a new machine in a year or two. If it dies before that I'll go back to a backup 980Ti.

RTX 3060 Ti since 2022 september and it will have to do for a good while.
Luckily I don't plan on upgrading to a higher res monitor so its alright + I don't always play the most demanding games anyway. 'even if I do I don't mind lowering/tweaking settings/use upscalers'

I'm mainly a budget-mid range user so maybe when theres an actual worthy upgrade in that range I will think about it if I have some saved up money at the time. 'normally I keep my cards for 2-3 years or so'

Primary: RX 6800 XT, no interest in upgrading as it's the most overkill part I've ever owned.

But I was just using a GT 635 yesterday and having fun finding what works well on it. For older 1GB cards like this, I heartily recommend Tomb Raider (2013) as it's game on almost anything and looks decent while doing it.

I'm running a Turing RTX 2070 Super. It's not really for today's AAA games I guess but it is major overkill for me since I am exclusively playing games from the 1990s to mid 2000s that I missed back in the day. My long term plans are to do a completely new build with an i7 (or whatever they will be called) and an upper mid range 5xxx card. Probably some time next year. I'm in no hurry. I'm having a lot of fun with the oldies.

Which one? My main PC has a 6750 XT (so I voted RX 6000), my two HTPCs have a GT 1030 and a 1050 Ti, but I also have a maybe half-dead 2070, a 1660 Ti and a GT 710. Oh, I nearly forgot about the Chinese GTX 550 Ti that's probably not a GTX 550 Ti (but I'm too scared to try it) that I got from a friend a while ago.

hmm cant vote, poll already closed?

I use 3000 series, RTX 3080 10GB.

I might be upgrading to 13900k soon, keeping DDR4, but GPU wont be until earliest end of this gen when prices drop.
