Wanted a future proofed card but the 2080 Ti is just too grossly expensive. This completely obliterates my GTX 770 (needless to say). Wanted a quiet higher tier 2080. The runner up was the ASUS 2080 but I wanted to stick with EVGA and I like the RGB letters on the side. Plus the ASUS one had iffy reviews. It has so much heatsink (3 slot card) that outside gaming it simply doesn't need to run the fans, and in older games like TF2 it sometimes doesn't even need them. Temps are very good at full load the card is much quieter than my 2 slot GTX 770.
One week in: Amazing except EVGA Precision botched a GPU BIOS update (which I didn't ask/want it to do) and COMPLETELY BRICKED THE CARD, requiring 6 hours of work to fix as a technician. 3 red lights of death on the side and max fan speed even in BIOS. Was very close to having to RMA it and EVGA said they couldn't do anything for me. Without that disaster it would have been 5/5. RTX in Metro Exodus is noticeable although there is a bug which stops G-SYNC from working for that game. Does not work with ASUS Aura but that is no surprise.
High framerates at ultra settings for any game you can think of as long as your CPU is decent. Works in Blender Cycles and Eevee as long as you have the most recent version of blender 2.79 or 2.80. Doesn't work at all in older versions. The sound levels are dramatically better than 2 fan cards and the fans are usually at 0 RPM outside gaming. The RGB lettering on the side looks excellent. Since this card uses an A grade binned processor and has high end cooling, this card has a great deal of overclock potential.

This thing is a beast of a card. It's both huge and works great. I run 3 monitors and the games look fantastic on my 1440p monitor.

******* POS. Can't even run CSGO at 100FPS. I will be selling for 2080 ti quad SLI. This is some ********.
Srsly though, get one, probably the best cooled 2080 out there! Bigger than, well, you know, AND IT DOESN'T SAG! +1!

Card does a great job pushing frames and making things looking amazing at 1080p. the minimal lighting helps my build look even better. three slots is a LOT of space so If you have a smaller case I recommend looking at EVGA's water cooled option or a smaller version. If it fits and you just want Air cooled, this works amazing when you play with the fan curves a bit (precision x1 is a must with EVGA's RTX cards)
