I have 2x GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme Waterforce (full factory water-block, though there's also an AIO version) and love them...great clocks, and so far at least (got them in November '18), no problems. That said, I also hear good things about the ROG Strix and have had several Asus / ROG GPUs over the years - never had any issues. That said, the Aorus water-cooled versions are hard to find, apparently harder than the Asus ROG Strix.

HOWEVER, whichever one you get, I would strongly recommend water-cooling it...All RTX 2080 TIs can get pretty toasty (my Aorus - on stock Bios - can each pull close to 380w max...)

Agree, watercooling helps the most. My lightning can easily pull around 420-430W. Peaked around 450w.
Personaly i would go for Asus and use XOC bios.

Yeah for some reason the Gigabyte is about 200 dollars cheaper for there Extreme OC version compared to the Asus ROG OG11 and EVGA FTW3. So I was wondering why it so much cheaper and clocked higher or the Same Even Zotac's version AMP extreme is more.

Per below, this is from MemoryExpress in Canada (so not US$)...note the different models of water-cooled Gigabyte Xtreme Waterforce (AIO and Full Block, the latter @ bottom right). I believe the Asus is the one @ top left. Now, I have posted some Aorus results here at OCN with stock Bios @ 2205 MHz (Unigine Superposition 4K), but that is both a good sample and one which sits in a massive w / c system, so perhaps not a 'typical' result.

Again, I believe they're both good choices, I would just make sure that you w-cool it, and if you get an air-cooled card, leave some of your budget for that.

...here is the full-block watercooled version (from NewEgg.com; US$) I'm talking about. For the record, all three Aorus (triple fan air, AIO and full-block) have the same PCB, afaik.

Yeah, it seems I'm going to go air cool and everything I read says the ROG is a much better card for keeping it cool and ability to overclock over 2k were the Gigabyte seems to runs hot out of the box.
