Got an offer $320 for same exact model as mine 980 Reference by nVidia , on eBay, not sure if it's worth it ;(

No getting around it if you want to use those Hybrid kits. Most people are preferring those ACX 2.0 boards because they are fairly quiet so there are plenty used ones for sale but they are incompatible with the Hybrid kit. As pricing and availability for the GTX-1080 become more reasonable the reference blower boards will start to appear more frequently. You just need to keep shopping around and see what pops up.

Yeah i see the point but....1080 is over 800$ if you want it now, there is no place to buy from for 699, plus i don't want 1080 , waiting for "TI" minwile it feels worth it spending 300$ for a second 980 for another 6 months or so wink.gif But again i never had SLI and not sure what to expect 30%-50% or higher , every game acts different with SLI. ACX is a bit cheaper but it's ugly as it gets and i dont want to mess with the Dynamic LOL biggrin.gif
I mostly want a second 980 to run Oculus

980 SLI is on par with a GTX-1080 performance if not better so sticking with getting another GTX-980 is sound thinking in my book. I'm really happy with the way my boards perform. The only advantage I see for getting a 1080 is the addition 4 GB VRAM for a total of 8 GB plus the GDDR5x is much faster than my GDDR5. I think I'll be good until the GTX-1180 ti Volta if not longer especially since I spent a considerable amount to fit my boards with EK full cover waterblocks.

As of today i can barely fit the second 980 with a Hybrid Kit so yes a single 1080 would be a better choice if it was available for suggested price thumb.gif
Dude is waiting on eBay , don't friggin know what to do here rolleyes.gif

Let him sweat for a while. Maybe, hopefully, he will get impatient and give you a better price just to complete the deal.

Its nVidia reference same exact as mine @ 65 ASIC i can get it up to 1580Mhz , Hopefully if it works out i'll be able to clock the same.Might not even get the Hybrid kit for it after all we'll see how it goes. You think having Different clocks in SLI will mess with performance?

The boards will run at the clock rate of the slower board. The slowest board will drag the performance of the better board down. My ASIC is virtually identical so I can sync the settings in Afterburner. I always have problems unless I apply different boost rates to get matching clocks before I enable SLI when my boards boost diferently. Some owners never have problems with mismatched boost clocks while I get nothing but stuttering, flickering and occasional TDR crashes. Some people just have all of the luck while I learned not to keep banging my head against the wall. My ASIC scores are 79.0 and 79.3 so I feel like I hit the Silicone Lottery with these.
