MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO 11Gb gddr5X PCI Express Graphics Card Black
  • Not much to say other than I love the design and it's an absolute beast of a card!
  • I could not be happier with it. Looks awesome too.
  • It is performing well and giving over 144fps on ultra.
  • Works as expected, no problems yet. Great card for games!
  • Just as described and works great. I love quality of this card. Playing games with it is awesome!
ASUS Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Strix A8G Graphics Card (GAMING 8 GB GDDR5) - Black
  • Very impressed. Paired with an i7 4770k (oc'ed to 4.1), this breezers through Doom 2016 with all settings on ultra, smooth and fast. It looks stunning.
  • Great card, fast enough to handle anything at 1080p (overkill for it, in fact). Runs very cool at 1080, no louder than my old 960.
  • Courier was fast, and well packed, The Graphic is well built, at the 1st reboot was a terrible noise, but after 3 posts its working fine,
  • Fast card, looks great and it can handle everything I have thrown at it so far.
  • Very fast and quiet. I am very happy with this card.

What customers say about "Features"
MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO 11Gb gddr5X PCI Express Graphics Card Black
  • Very well thought out design, it runs extremely cool and quiet.
  • Video card works just as expected..was easy to install and download drivers..runs quiet.
  • Its handles my Oculus VR with x-plane 11 just fine...no cons so far.
  • Min gpu temp was 34° C and the max I was getting was 60° on idle no fan.
  • Fans don't make noise even when I play on ultra.
ASUS Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Strix A8G Graphics Card (GAMING 8 GB GDDR5) - Black
  • The card is well built, the built in fan is quiet and keeps the card cool. I won't be upgrading anytime soon.
  • At current prices I would look at a dual fan OC card but at RRP this GPU is a worthy buy.
  • This card is also really quite and the fans also stop when its not needed.
  • Excellent low fan noise, only thing i don't get is the Cable adapter 12 pin to to 8 pin, is this overload? As in i have enough 8x4 8 pin adapters
  • Quality GPU with great fan longevity. The bearings in these things seem immortal. Good core and clock speed boosts and respectable OC.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO 11Gb gddr5X PCI Express Graphics Card Black
  • Good quality cables, no complaints.
  • there were no problems connecting the video card, the card was firmly inserted.
  • I received a video card with broken ports, how can this be?
ASUS Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Strix A8G Graphics Card (GAMING 8 GB GDDR5) - Black
  • This card was chosen for for its two hdmi outlets, which will be connected to 32 inch external monitors, the DVI connector running the main monitor in ultrahd mode.
  • Installation was uneventful (a good thing!) and simple. Simply slot it in screw it in place, connect it to an 8 pin and you're done.
  • Connecting the power cables could be made easier too.
  • Great product but I thought It would come with an 8-pin PCI-E adapter to connect to the power supply
  • Easy to install, only 1 power connection needed. It's a relatively small size so easy to fit although it's snug to my large cooler.
