I'm talking about in Australia pricing is a complete rip off.

ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition 11GB $1129
ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC 11GB $1379

That's a $250 markup over the FE and saying that's not ASUS Tax.

I could understand $100 markup but ASUS is having a laugh and yes there laughing all the way to the bank with their mark-ups cause they know there are people silly to pay that extra money.

I have seen people moaning about UK pricing but IMO you guys get way better pricing then we do.

Does that include VAT? That's only about 90 dollars more than the FE in AUD.

edit all our prices include 10% GST

Definitely worth the extra for the Strix.

I have both Strix and FE 1060s.

The Strix is both quieter and overclocks better than the FE card.

So would I. Especially because you pretty much have to WC the Founders edition, which even with something like an EVGA AIO would cost you far more to do.

Totally agree. The GTX 1080 Ti FE on the air cooler is quite loud I found. Not fan motor noise but a constant air whooshing sound when gaming. Found it quite annoying.

Still a far cry from the old GTX 480's in SLI I used to own!

Yeah, the only reason I see in buying a FE even with its lower price is if you wanted to SLI on air, install the card in a compact ITX chassis, or have a water loop and want a wider array of blocks to choose from.

TBH my GTX 480s really weren't that bad in SLi. Nowhere near as bad as people had led me to believe any way.

Nothing a decent set of headphones couldn't take care of any way



Wow, that brings back memories. Thinking about it now I did have them in about the best case you could have picked for SLi though. I think the spacing was also critical.

Neat cable management. I had to stuff all mine in a really tight case, I managed to shoe-horn a 280mm and 140mm radiator in there though.

Only picture I still have left http://i.imgur.com/8m7dLdR.jpg

My wife said it was either get rid of the cards or she was leaving so we compromised on watercooling.

You can tell they're 480's cause they had that cut out in the PCB where the fan took in more air from the back etc

noice ! water was but a pipe (groan) dream for me then. They really weren't that bad though. The GTX 280 I had was far worse that thing was like a storage heater.

Been there with my wife too haha. I promised three PCs was where I would stop.
