EVGA 1080 FTW available to order on Amazon, In-Stock data set as March 5th $680

Sure this is about 60 bucks more than what EVGA is charging for the same card but EVGA charges over $20 for shipping and Amazon is much easier to deal with. Plus Prime Shipping applies!

Not the best deal but its what we have to deal with right now. Hope I can help some of you. i already have my 1080.

Likely because this is around 1080Ti pricing. 1080s were dropped to $500 when the Ti came out.

Better deal out there today though? Unlikely.

Still running mine, which was $620 new 18 months ago. Getting a bit long in the tooth.

People always rave about EVGA, but I've never seen so many problems with any brand as them, especially during the 6000-8000 GeForce series. For the last decade+ they've been down on the bottom of my list for reliability in videocards. My sample size is a couple dozen cards of each brand each year, and very batch-specific. Their power supplies have been okay.

MSI was also terrible once upon a time though - videocards, motherboards, CD burners were all short-lived 15 years ago. Everyone can improve though, and I don't expect that every EVGA product, even from the same series, is defective today. At least warranties are typically 3+ years long now.

Yes, this was crazy when it happened but the new BIOS and Thermal Pads helped with this. least EVGA does have the 3-year warranty and also does that Step-Up program. I have used their cards for years now and never had one issue. MSI makes some great cards too and usually a little cheaper but those 2.5 slot coolers are no good for multi-GPU setups.

Ya i know it was much better 6 months ago but all card prices even straight from the manufacturer is up now. memory shortages and pricing to blame there. cheapest 1080 Ti straight from EVGA is $810 now... sucks

This. I'm not going to downvote because in stock GPUs are a slickdeal lately. But... For my purposes I'd just want to opt for the TI.
