I'd personally go single card over SLI any day.

1080 should be enough for you.

A single GPU all day, never get more than one GPU. And you can still game at 4K on a 1080p monitor using DSR.

He already has a 1070ti tho, going from a 1070ti to a 1080 isn't worth it at all in my opinion, it should be less than 10% improvement, so either stick to the 1070ti or if you want more go for the 1080ti.

Sli isn’t fully optimized but if u save money on another 1070ti, it will still out preform the 1080

I thought video editing is a CPU-heavy work? I'm also doing some video editing, imo graphics card is not as important as the CPU.
