1080 SLI FTW!

Heh. Only because my monitor is 3440x1440 do I even come close to needing anything like that.

Where did you get it?
I'm thinking either 1060 or R9 480.

I would stay away from the R9. It runs every hot and you probably can't even OC it.
you can buy a 980Ti for like $400 now. pretty cheap

There's already reviews on YT that are far better than anything i could provide lol.

Basic (very basic) details are:

1070 > 1060 > 980 > 960

Specs between 10 series cards here:
http://www.geforce.com/hardware/10series/compare

1060 beats out the R9 480 in some ways, loses in others, they are close in performance overall.

1060 starts at $250 for secondary/custom brands

1060 Founders Edition is $299 (the one i got since it was the only one in stock...)

Power draw kept at 120W

Looking at the 1060 (debating that or a SSC 960 I think), but I'll wait until I start my build closer to the end of the year to see if there's any good deals.

I'm sure you'll be better off expense-wise at that point. Plus there will definitely be more stock by then.

Agreed. My only problem is because there's so much time between now and when I'll start building, my build keeps changing lol

1200 bucks? If I add 50,- more I would get a complete performance brake set for my F32. Hard decision, huh?
