Anyone Have Either Of These RTX 2080 Cards?
 
I'm going to buy one of these cards because I get an employee discount at a seller which knocks both down to around 600 after tax but I'm not sure which one to go with.

I want go with EVGA since I'm a fan of their products but the MSI card is factory overclocked and both seem to have good reviews online.

I'd go with EVGA if it was my money.

My 1080 Ti is the first MSI GPU I ever owned and while it works just fine and the cooler is fantastic and it looks pretty sweet (IMO) it's also one of the worst OCing 1080 Tis on OCN.

(I know I just lost the silicon lottery and my sample size of 1 is too small to make the assumption that all MSI cards are crap but it still left a bad taste in my mouth :p)

Wow, so sleeping on this decision I woke up and was going to buy the EVGA. To my surprise the price on it went 130 dollars 😡

Dont know if you agree but i think the EVGA cooler is ugly as sin this generation
Even the backplate does not look all that good

I agree. My 1070ti looks nicer.

I have but I just pulled the trigger on the Ventus OC 2080. With my discount, shipped it was 628. To me that's a hell of a deal.

I'm curious, what kind of MHZ are you getting stable on your Core?

@OP: Personally, I would definitely recommend the MSI. I also have an MSI 1080 Ti and it's the best card I ever had. Very silent fans even at max (vs strix for ex), runs really cool (about 60c max under load, side panel off) and OCs decently.

It'll bench at 1975mhz but it's not stable above 1949mhz @ 1.087v.
