Specs: Windows 10, Intel core i7 7700k base clock, 16gb DDR4 RAM
Which gtx 1080 is better? My friend is planning on purchasing a GeForce gtx 1080 graphics card to upgrade his pc. I'm helping him shop and I found this on newegg https://m.newegg.com/products/14-12...
I also found a gigabyte gtx 1080 on newegg but the link won't work.
There is also the nvidia GeForce gtx 1080 on nvidia's website. So I'm asking which one is better for gaming or if they all will do equally well, thanks!

✔ Best Answer
NVidia is the GPU manufacture, not the card manufacture. Your link appears to work, that is MSI, others are made by other manufactures. There is little difference between except minor ones in settings, cooling, and perhaps more important, build quality and customer support. I tend towards EVGA but there are others that other people find as high quality. Look at some of the numbers, the type and number of monitor jacks, overall size (to fit case), and customer reviews on Newegg and similar sites. One bad experience from one customer does not point to a major problem but many problems, unresolved problems, reports of poor support, etc. may be a red flag.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
