People freak out when they see the DT version and some even say it is less capable. But let me remind you that the DT versions are just as fast as any 1080 at base clock, they are labeled DT simply because they aren't stable at overclocked speed. If you see a DT card at a good price, buy it, it is a 1080. I bought this card from B&H for 429.99 USD with no tax, and it also came with a FREE EVGA G3 750W Gold+ psu(around $100). At the time of writing this review, you could have this 1080 or a 1070ti with no psu. However, don't have high hopes if you wanna try overclocking. This is my first time overclocking so I went by the books. After many hours of heaven benchmark, I got a stable 210/600. But when I launched Division and CSGO I was getting instability and glitches.So I tune it down to 170/500, but then GTA 5 won't work properly. Then I gave up overclocking all together.
but everything else works great, love the RBG.

Great card, make sure you can fit it in your case! RGB's are great.

First card whined a bit, RMA'd for another card. That one whined too. I've learned to live with it given the fact that my case is pretty much completely open and I play with headphones for the most part.

Great card. The new 1180 cards are coming out soon, but honestly don't even see the need to upgrade any time soon. Pure overkill for 1080p gaming, and great for 1440p. Have no interest in 4K gaming, so this card is all I need. RGB too, so that adds 1000000mhz clock speed as we all know.

The only downside is the RGB lighting doesn't seem to be compatible with any 3rd party lighting software, so it has to be controlled separately. With that said, the card is a beast. Despite not technically being a full-on FTW with high base speeds, I've been easily able to clock it up to 1911MHz at base voltage without even trying via MSI Afterburner. I may play with it more, as the fans have kept it very cool on every game I've played using it so far. At or around MSRP it's a fantastic card. With that said, I've seen very few high-end Pascal cards being sold anywhere near a fair price in the months following my own purchase, so buyer beware.

Great card, very fast, very powerful, demolishes nearly every game I throw at it. It's a shame that EVGA doesn't factory overclock the DT, but it's plenty overclockable anyway.

I'm knocking off a star for selling a model of the revered FTW without the one thing the FTW sets apart. The high base clocks. Other than that it is a really beautiful card, with excellent RGB lighting. And it's a 1080 so it kicks butt.

Couldnt be happier with EVGA’s GPU.. It does exactly as it should, which is giving me the ultimate gaming experience and ive never had any probs with it except it overheated a lil bit first, but talking with EVGA customer service led to them sending me just a week later, new thermal padding with an easy installation guide! Now it barely goes above 65c under heavy loads.
Thanks EVGA, il definatly buy youre products in the future!
