Pros: Beautiful performance for modern price points.

Cons: Risky expensive purchase

Overall Review: It happened randomly. Suddenly the fans rev'd to full throttle and the screen froze. I restarted my computer and had no video output. Immediately put my 2080TI back in and went to process the return on Newegg. Good thing I didn't rush to sell the 2080TI Return process for sudden premature hardware failure is annoying--especially having slow boat ship it across country back to Cali, wait for Newegg to process the return, then have to wait for it to ship across country (again). Funny that the most expensive single computer part I've ever purchased had failed the fastest as well. I understand it's random and the luck of the draw, but the experience stings and makes me leary of buying from the Gigabyte brand in the future.
