Hella expensive. Had to sell a few kidneys for this one. Not worth it at all but its fast I guess. Sits at about 62C at full load.

This is definitely the highlight as well as the most controversial component of the build. Previously, I had planned on buying the Strix 1080 Ti, but when Nvidia revealed the RTX series I knew exactly which aftermarket card I was going to shoot for. With the goal of 4K + 60 FPS + Max settings, there was only one consumer-grade card that could get the job done for the foreseeable future. The price tag was tough to swallow, but all the news of GPU failure surrounding the 2080 Ti reference PCB designs only strengthened my resolve to go for a custom PCB. I decided that I would also consider the EVGA FTW3 if that became available; knowing the build quality of ASUS and EVGA, those were the only two card manufacturers I’d ever consider for card this notoriously error-prone.
Acquiring the Strix 2080 Ti was gigantic struggle especially since I missed the Newegg launch on Halloween. For a couple of days, I was obsessed with NowInStock and jumped at any notification I received. Each time, I was beaten narrowly by what I suspect to be bots, very dedicated scalpers, or just other determined consumers. Frustrated, I spent a little bit of time poking around with Newegg’s back-end API and found out which endpoint I would need to hit in order to add a product to my shopping cart. One day, I got a notification and the link provided by NowInStock led to a different GPU other than the Strix. I took a leap of faith and hit the API endpoint I had previously discovered and, lo and behold, the Strix 2080 Ti ended up in my cart and I finally managed to order one.
This card is downright beautiful, wicked fast, ice cold, and incredibly quiet for the performance. The raised power limit, temperatures, and fan headers give me considerable overclocking room. The Strix series has always had terrific resell value potential that I could see myself tapping into if AMD manages to come out with a cost-effective competitor that can actually keep up with the 2080 Ti. At the end of the day I couldn’t be happier to own this card and I pray it doesn’t fail on me anytime soon (been using it for 2 weeks now).

One of the best air cooled 2080 Ti cards on the market. Looks beautiful, runs a +1000 memory clock like a champ, and stays at or below 70°C at all times. Frame rates are insane on my 1440p 144Hz monitor.

Didn't have the time to squeeze it at its full potential with the latest games yet, anyway I think all words have already been used to describe this GPU.
I can only spend an extra - negligible - word for the pleasant effect of having it synchronized with Trident Z RGB RAM sticks and Maximus Extreme XI MB through Aura Sync, apart from that I guess this beast will stay in its place for a long time (that's also why I decided to buy a WQHD monitor instead of a 4K).

Great video card. Very quiet, very powerful, and runs pretty cool. I have slight coil whine at times, but it's very minor.

Costs a fortune, but 'the most powerful GPU' in the market for now.
Had my eyes on ASUS/MSI/Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti flagship variants for a long while.
ASUS: Highest price tag for ROG Strix GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti OC. MSI: Lowest price tag for its Gaming X Trio. Gigabyte: Aorus RTX 2080 Ti XTREME is the most stunning design.
I was almost going for Gaming X Trio; then I learned that power-balancing circuit was missing in its PCB, which is not a good news for such high TDP cards.
I have a ASUS GTX 750 Ti OC 2GB variant from 2014 and it is still going strong without a single issue; this made me realize ASUS is the one I should buy for its high-quality components, reliability, and most importantly longevity.
Choice was clear, I went for ROG Strix GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti OC and boy this thing is BEASTLY and of course COSTLY (an entire PC can be build by its price tag) !!!

Beast of a card. Stress tested on unigine at maxed settings 1440p for an hour, never dipped below 200fps, and never above 70c. Costs an arm and a leg though, and at this point, its probably worth waiting for the next flagship.

Seen a few complains online about this cards but I only have good things to say about it. runs anything you throw at it. if the cooling on the case is great the GPU stays in high performance with low temps. fans can be noisy when above 70% but to be real i don't even bother to go higher than 50%. Friendly software and a beautiful clean look.

Runs everything I play without even noticing it's doing it. Futureproof for years hopefully, and a MASSIVE upgrade over my old system. Sags a bit, as all large cards do, but that's easily solved with an aftermarket brace, I just have to pick one. This baby is running dual 34" 3440x1440 monitors via DisplayPort with no issues (other than only one of the monitors waking up on startup sometimes, but I believe that's a Windows 10/driver issue, not the card/monitor).
