from completed build My First Gaming PC! (Ryzen 5 1600, GTX 1080)
Demolishes all of the games I want to play. At 1440p 144hz, it can take advantage of the extra refresh rate in most games. Enjoyable for me, and looks nice in my system. Kind of wish I would have gotten a Strix card or EVGA card, but I decided to buy in a very bad time- during the mining craze killing stock/ ruining prices.
The software is kind of finicky at times, but it is bearable.

Awesome. It fits really well in Core v1 case and performance are better than the founders edition. Moreover, it's quiet on desktop. It's obviously different when you launch games like Ark ;)

Pretty decent card, can't complain. Especially since I got mine refurbished for $200 less than brand new. Haven't pushed it too far yet, but it looks like it can handle some serious games.

from completed build Maximum Overdrive
Its sexy , and currently (one of) the most advanced graphics card on the planet. In person operating its not unreasonably loud , is nice to see a visual fan off indicator.
I think this card with a 5100-5500 Firestrike ultra benchmark (depending on overclocking options) performs in realtime just good enough to be considered a "4k graphics card". Although id say the 1080ti version of this that will eventually come out will truly be the 4k version. i imagine fallout 4 i wont be getting 60fps with max settings on a 4k resolution. Probably around a medium setting.
heres what i can say:
playing MechWarrior online which would probably be considered a moderately demanding online multiplayer game , at maxed settings on 4k resolution it gets 70 fps.
the game plays beautifully and stable on my 4k 60hz monitor at 60fps :)
If you wanna say you have one of the first "4k gaming graphics cards" ever , go buy this now!
four of five stars because of its insane price right now.....

from completed build "Anonymous" - 1440p 144Hz Build
This thing is pretty large and in charge. It fits snug in my case so make sure you get your measurements down if you are using a smaller case. Kicks the tush for performance, I'm running 1440p 144hz, so I was happy with my choice.
However I am a bit concerned with the RGB lighting on the logo, it just cycles through the spectrum and the "GeForce Experience" programs RGB colour control does not work to control the colours. My friend has an EVGA 1070 and his is compatible with the colour control program. I think this Gigabyte model is not yet compatible with the colour control, hopefully they release an update. THUS 4 STARS.

from completed build Mini Monster: Overclocked i7-6700k and GTX1080 in a Mini-ITX Case
In spite of living in the shadow of more popular vendors like EVGA and ASUS, this too is a very solid card. It reportedly runs a little cooler than most factory OC'd 1080s, which made it a good pick for my Mini-ITX build.
It performs very well right out of the box but can still reach a decent overclock with ease. Using MSI afterburner, I'm able to hit around 1950 MHz core / 5375 MHz (effective) memory at 108% power without having to mess with the voltage/frequency curve.
In the tight confines of my small case, 25C ambient, and 80% fan speed, temperatures stay in the low 70s or lower under stress testing loads. That said, the fans get a bit noisy above 60-70%. There's also a small amount of coil whine, but it only shows up under the heaviest of loads and gets drowned out by the fans.
