I'm no fanboy either way but the answer is obvious, especially considering tri mons.

Just because the 1080 is listed doesn't mean it is the best choice for me. If I am not going to see a major difference between the 1070 and 1080, then I would rather save the money and put it towards a new cpu/mobo. Obviously the 1080 is the best card on the market, but that doesn't make it the best option.


^ this guy

Reason you would list, is because of that extra 10 FPS/possibility of SLI
but now you're loosing us.


What matters more, Physex or dat HP/Price thing?


See what I did there? biggrin.gif

Dude, your OP never said anything about saving money for upgrading other things. State your question clearly and concisely if you want the best suggestions.
