ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card STRIX-GTX1080-O8G-GAMING
ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card STRIX-GTX1080-O8G-GAMING

Pros: - This thing is a beast. Firestrike score of 23,500 at 2,050 MHz with a simple click of the OC mode. - Maybe i hit the lottery or just got lucky, but the card has not seen temps higher than 71C and usually sits right around 66-69C. This is running 2k 144hz; DOOM on Ultra and Overwatch on Epic. Going to try out Tomb Raider soon enough. - I haven't seen the need to really mess with the manual OC or fan curve yet because its running everything i throw at it. Also because it hasn't hit high temps, i haven't experience the fan noise some people have been complaining about. I probably will try to OC it at some point or try putting it through some more benchmarking to see what happens. - RGB is beautiful, i like how you can adjust the brightness (the deep/dark red goes perfect with my setup). Some cool Aura settings to play with.

Cons: - None - Maybe fancier packing for a $680 card? - It looks like Newegg has it listed for $720 now, if thats the case, its still well worth it, but it seems like price gouging...why keep raising the price

Overall Review: - Right now i really can't complain about anything. The only thing i might note is that it is a large card. It fit in my EVOLV ATX fine, but if you have a small form factor you might have an issue.
