1080 advise needed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking to order a new graphics card this week a GTX 1080.

I'm how ever not sure which one yet.

 

My options at this point are:

Gigabyte Aourus GeForce GTX 1080 8G (€565)

Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080 8G (€569)

KFA Geforce GTX  HOF 1080 8G (€610)

 

The Disatvandtage of the KFA HOF one is that the store does not give the free destiny 2 game with the card (which is a game i want to so that would mean i would have to buy it, giving the Asus & Gigabyte ones a €50 advantage)

I was also wondering if there is a big difference preformence wise between the different Asus ROG Strix cards, as the 8G, A8G & O8G have huge price differences.

 

If anyone could help me out that would be great!

 The performance should be pretty much identical, but the Strix should have the best cooling


I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do the hoomans give their builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + ML120 + NF-F12

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710

Logitech G502/G303

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of me. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

Where are you buying from? Also check for 1070Ti deals. 95% of the performance of the 1080 (which can be compensated with overclocking) and sometimes much cheaper.

I preferd to go for that one haha, it comes with Destiny 2 & Assassin's creed Origins and at this moment is one of the cheapest ones (from the well known brands atleast)

Do you know if there is a big difference between the asus ones preformence wise.

asus by far, great cards and cooling, with an unbeatable customer service (Besides EVGA)

I don't have a specific store, the cheapest 1070ti i could find was 530, so the 1080€ is the same price as i will buy destiny 2 anyway.

The advantage of the 1080 is that it comes with Destiny 2 & Assassin's creed Origins two games i want to get.

 

So although it's  49€ more expensive, it get's me two games i was going to buy anyway.

There's only two models, the Strix and Poseidon. The Poseidon is a hybrid card with watercooling and aircooling support. Pretty much useless if you dont build a custom loop. Different variants of the Strix perform the same as long as you tweak them with software.

Strix for sure. I own one personally, and it's absolutely fantastic; super quiet, powerful, overclocks well (easily over 2ghz), and stays cool under full load (under 70 usually when overclocked).

Plus, it's got the best design of any GPU atm, save the Galax EXOC cards.

Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080 A8G  ( 1835 MHz Boost Clock )

Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080 OC8G ( 1936 MHz Boost Clock )

 

The price differences are quite big The A8G is €45 euro more, and the OG is not even an option at 714€
