Brilliant LED Lighting With Speed to Match
To meet the demands of next-generation panels and games, you need a next-generation GPU. This one from MSI is just that. Outfitted with all the latest cooling technologies, like the TRI-FROZR thermal design, TORX 2.0 fans, and Military Class 4 components, it won't overheat during intense gameplay. When overclocked, it delivers nearly 1700 MHz, too—not to mention it's got 11GB GDDR5X memory to go with it. And that's just on the inside. Look at the outside of the card and you'll see plenty more. More specifically, it's got MSI's Mystic Light: a customizable LED lighting system that can be adjusted just how you like it. Divided into three lighting zones, each of which can be controlled individually, the card looks great in any build. So prepare to take on VR titles and fast-action games. You know your card will be ready. Are you?
Note: Each drop participant will receive a copy of Destiny 2 for PC (game code digitally provided). This drop has limited quantities available.

For 750, you can probably buy/build a decent 1440p gaming PC with that.

well this is the highest clocked MSI 1080Ti offered with full RGB so they are sold with relatively higher MSRP around $800 or over, with limited availability. so yes its a good deal if you want a full RGB card or this exact card.
compared to a regular 1080Ti of-course not.

can you provide a link or refer to the hardware you will use to output 1440p performance in that price point.

if your build is for raw performance and your not targeting the aesthetics of your build then this is definitely not the card for you. look for a 1080Ti around $650 or a 1080 for $480 and that should do the trick for you for the next 2-3 years..

that true, but for a 1080p gaming PC you shouldn't be looking at a 1080Ti. 1080Ti is not catering that target audience.

that was a little redundant, here is the general breakdown, can vary per game and optimizations
if you want 4k today with max/high settings your looking for 1080Ti/1080
if you want 2k today with max/high settings your looking for 1080/1070
if you want 1080p with max-high settings your looking for 1060

yes, Volta and Ampere are both rumored to release sometime next year. the next GTC is scheduled end of March 2018 which is 4 months away, if they do announce something new then. otherwise, it could be any amount of time.

Your tiers would be for high settings, not Max (Ultimate) - my opinion.

For instance, most say a 1080TI won't quite suffice for 4K. I don't have a 4K monitor so can't speak from personal experience.

I'd say for 2k you'd probably want a 1080 - I don't think a 1070 will quiet cut it. I had a vega 64 and it would drop from pegging 60 FPS on many games at 1440p. My 1080TI never deviates off 60FPS at 1440p though.

for 1080p a 1060 isn't quit there -- it's close, but my laptop has a 6GB 1060 in it and I can't play PUBG at 60FPS beyond about medium settings.

If you only want medium(occasionally) and mostly high settings your tiering is fine. In the absence of alternatives (until Volta arrives) it's probably okay.

You only need a Ti if you are running at 4K. I'm only running on a 1440p screen and it is such an overkill.

For christsakes, I'm just browsing on my Ti. I'm really thinking about just parting with it and plugin my EVGA GeForce 8400 GS. I think I bought it for 30 dollars. I even tried running GTA V with it. Good lord....

I have the 1080 GTX and in most games, I can only set it to med/high if I want the fps to stay above 60fps. No OC though. I would say even the mighty 1080 Ti will not do 4K at max if you want greater than 60fps. The 1080 Ti can do 4K on high for some game with greater than 60fps. You would need volta or next gen to do max on 4K with greater than 60fps.
