Hey all, I wanted to update the thread to mention that our own @Scott_Lufkin (who posted above) reached out to me and offered me a very much more than reasonable price on his less-than-18 months used EVGA GTX 1080 FTW–he’d just pulled the trigger on a 1080 Ti. I really couldn’t pass it up, especially since the EVGA card’s warranty follows the card, not the original buyer. It’s on its way, supposed to arrive tomorrow. So big props and thanks to Scott!
Now I just need to grab a fancy G-Sync monitor (that ASUS IPS panel is mighty tempting) and I’m golden. Unfortunately my Amazon Rewards Visa CC got compromised and I’m waiting for the replacement (so I can get that sweet 5% back on the purchase if I go with Amazon). The new card might have arrived yesterday but for the fact that it was Veteran’s Day. Oh well, first-world problems. :-)
