I plan on putting one in a pc build I'm doing in a few months. I'll probably wait for 3rd party versions though.

I'm having an internal conflict on if I should wait for the 1080ti or go ahead an purchase a 3rd party EVGA card once it comes out. I know for sure I'm not paying the $100 premium for a founders card so either way ill be waiting a few weeks.

I'll be getting a 3rd party one, hopefully an EVGA hybrid or w/c version comes out soon

I'll be upgrading from my 960

after watching countless youtube video reviews  i think i will also be going for the 1070   most  games it does better  or a few FPS less then a titan x  which is crazy for the price point

it will be a big upgrade from my EVGA GTX 960 4gb FTW

I ended up going for 2 MSI Armor 1080s. Doesn't seem to be much difference in the AIB 1080s so, just went with a non-OC model with a decent cooler. Hopefully they'll be here saturday...

Got an entire new rig for 4k Gaming now, may as well post specs here instead of making a thread.

Case: Coolermaster MasterCase 5 Pro
PSU: EVGA 1000 G2
CPU: i7 5930K @ 4.8GHz (will probably drop to 4.5 for day-to-day use)
Cooler: Kraken X61 (Thermal Grizzly Hydronuat TIP)
Mobo: ASUS X99 Sabertooth
RAM: HyperX DDR4 3000MHz 32GB
OS Drive: Samsung 950 256gb M.2
Other drives: Samsung 850 Evo 500GB
Generic WD 2TB
GPU: 2 x MSI Armor GTX1080

That's pretty much the exact build I've been considering. I don't really have a need for 2x GPU though.

What monitor are you running with all that?

Yeah, there should be some 4k 120hz out this year, though that's a job for 2 GPUs, lol.

I've been considering getting something similar to the Predator, keeping 2 of my 24" monitors, and then buying a new 40" (ish) tv to place above my PC setup and just have my xbox connected to that.
Admittedly, I have done pretty minimal research on how well a single 1080 could support the above.

I have a 680 running a 4 and 2 1080p monitors atm, I reckon a single would be fine.
