Vega 64 vs 1070ti vs 1080?

either 1070 Ti or聽1080 which ever got the better cooler and warranty.

reference Vega 64 is kinda a waste since you need to spend more money +聽time for the聽AIO and it also consume more power.聽

So im currently looking for a used card to buy, and these three seem to have gone down in price quite alot (I live in Norway 馃嚦馃嚧) now the question is which one would be better value? The1080s go for around $300,Vega 64from $220-300 and1070tifor around $250. TheVegacards seem cheapest but all of them have the reference blower, which makes me question if i should get one + cooling bracket + AIO cheap watercooler?

Give advice/your experiences with these cards!聽馃

Vega 64s do benefit quite a bit from better cooling (compared to the stock blower cooler), but I'm pretty sure that regardless of that, it will be similar on average to the 1080 in terms of raw FPS, if not better even. So if you don't care about Nvidia Shadowplay, I'd definitely suggest going with the Vega 64.

I'd go with the 1080 personally. I wouldn't touch an AMD reference card with a 10 foot pole.

The 1070Ti is a good choice as well if you're just gaming at 1080p, or playing easier titles.

You'd really need to flesh out your post a bit more for us to properly help you.
