I am looking to upgrade my venerable GTX980 to the 1080.  Which would offer the best bang-for-the-buck, FE, FTW some other one?    System specs are i4790 stable at 4.6.  I'm running P3D with a triple (1080) monitor setup all using DisplayPort

I will say I  am partial to EVGA cards as the past ones have treated me well.

 

Thanks

Kevin

Just put in an EVGA GTX1080 FTW ACX3.0.  It has identical specs to the 1080 FTW2 ICX that they just released and they dropped the price about $80 on the FTW.  I replaced a ZOTAC 980 and saw about a 10% increase in FPS.

When you decide on a particular card, it's worth Googling "coil whine" to make sure that it's not a problem with the card you've selected.

EVGA

 

My 780ti failed a while back after 2 1/2 years of hard use, it was replaced by EVGA with a 980 without question or cost. Can't say fairer than that.

I'm using a 650 ti and find that's more then enough to run full sliders and up to 4 x SGSS in fsx. Anything else is total overkill.
