RTX 2080 (UGH) I pre-ordered the RTX 2080 Founders Edition. This has some pros and cons.
Pros: Ordered the day after pre-orders came out and received it on 9/20/18. It shipped a few days prior. Love the look. Hate all the sharp turns and futuristic crap they were doing with previous cards. A lot of people hate the way the RTX look, I love the simplistic metal look. Also, the bridge cap makes it look non-existent, not like the rubber grommets they cover most other SLI capable cards with. Performance of it is great now that the kinks are worked out (for now). I'm sure future drivers will perma-fix some issues I've had.
Cons: Constant issues upon initial install. Stuttering and jittering gameplay. Felt like I was playing on a 1050 with better graphics. As with any new series, kinks needed to be worked out via updates. After hours upon hours of uninstalling and reinstalling certain drivers and changing monitor settings, it finally got worked out. This was expected. This thing is HOT. Under load temps have reached 80 and a little bit over. Concerning for me, but apparently not Nvidia as they say it's acceptable.

I honestly prefer FE rather than STRIX or AORUS because of the cleanness design.
