if $100 is THAT big a deal to anyone, they probably have more important things they ought to be doing than gaming.

Don't worry about me. I assure you I can afford it.

I'm doing ok for myself and right now this is the only semblance of a hobby I have. On principle yes you are absolutely right. Honestly, I'm not going to get my stomach in knots over it though.

If someone has $600 to spend on a card, they sure as hell will have easy $750 to spend. Thats not the issue.

I look at it in two ways, in principle we are encouraging MSI to get away with these prices, which may encourage others to as well. Bad for consumers as a whole. However, in retrospect Nvidia/partners probably had this planned all along, to let the market drive the prices, and dare I say maybe create an artificial shortage to begin with (too much conspiracy?)

The other way is, I just saved $150! Thats roughly 5 games off cdkeys, and I just pre-ordered Deus Ex Mankind divided for $32 smile.gif

I was wondering if there are any overclocking reviews of the 1080 out there that have a custom bios?

from what i seen even with custom cooling, custom pcbs, and an extra power connector cards arent able to go much further than stock ones
post #5299 of 6175

The Galax employee/engineer live overclocked a HOF 1080 to 2.2 Ghz @ around 1.3 volts custom bios on air. That's about it. +100 Mhz for +0.2 volts
