MSI Gaming Z a good performer?
Looks like it to me from the techpowerup review, and not going to spend $800+ AUD for a 2nd hand 1080ti with no warranty (the warranty for my 5960X has been priceless with 3 dead in a couple of years - warranty is not something to pass up on anymore).
So, it's $1069 AUD (above my budget but going to scrape it together), pushing a 55" KS8000 4K (currently using a 980ti) on a godlike mobo.
I'm running games at 4k with the 980ti (detail settings tweaked to stick 60fps).
