So yeah as the title says found a 1080 at a local retailer, brand new and everything so I know it’s legit but I haven’t been a pc gamer for long so idk if it’s worth it or not. Any feedback would be good.

Bad deal if prices were normal, good deal since prices suck. Rough though considering it was launched May 27, 2016. Almost 2 years ago and still full price

A good deal these days is a card to be MSRP.

for a founder? meh you'll regret the sound and heat. there is a reason why it hasn't sold in nearly 2 years.
DarkZV2Beta -No, because PS2 was garbage, and is the primary cause of the collapse of the Japanese game market in the mid 2000s. https://i.imgur.com/FMxcdHw.jpg

Yeah you also got ripped off and are a moron, so that doesn't say much.

I sure see a lot of 1080ti in that search.

I think it best to ask for a personalized question

I kind of go with this guy. FOunders editions are the "blower" type cards. Hotter and simply make more noise.

But up to you.

I just got an e-mail today from newegg, GTX 1080 Gigabyte for $550. I think its a 24 hours deal, but its a better deal than the one you found.

Edit: its via a promo code exclusive to the newsletter subscribers. I ain't getting it, and it expires on 11:59PM PT tomorrow, so I wouldn't mind sending you the promo code via PM if you're interested. Not sure if it'd work though. they say its only redeemable if you receive the email directly.

I used to have a good signature, then I got modded for it.
Now I shall try to think of something edgier to put here.
