Wait for Asus 1080ti OC Edition or get SLi 1080 now?

I have been in the process of building a new pc and purposely left the Graphics Card as the final component to buy as it has the most volatility when it comes to price (especially when I live in Australia).

I originally planned to get 2x Asus 1080 ROG STRIX and as such have enough money to do just that. However with the release of the 1080ti and Asus America's website already showing their 1080ti OC Edition.

I would like your thoughts on whether I should I wait until Asus actually releases the 1080ti OC Edition and buy just this single card or should just buy the 2x Asus 1080 ROG STRIX now.

Please note that it is just the graphics card that is stopping me from finishing my build.

  1. Do NOT get GTX 1080s now! You can get two 1080tis for about 1k each through either newegg or domestic retailers when the aftermarket cards release in the next few weeks.
  2. If you have no video cards I recommend a TI

    if you're looking for an SLI I recommended 1080 s because cheaper and 2 are about 25+ % faster than the titan on avg and 15+% faster than ti
  3. Wait and get 1080ti IMO. Single powerful card is was better than SLI. Prices is going to drop soon in Australia once they release after market cards. Keep monitoring OZBargain for decent deals and discounts. I bought my evga gtx 1080 FTW for around $760 last November, while it was around $1000 on ple and pcasegear :) All thanks to ebay %20 deal.
  4. The Ti is 11% faster than a superclocked 1080GTX 13% faster than a 1080GTX FE
    BUT 2 x 1080 a good amount faster than one TI almost 20% avg and 26% avg than X Pascal
  5. Depends on the games you want to play, and if they support SLI with your title. I was watching benchmarks and 1080 SLI is faster than a GTX1080TI

    The ti is actually about 35% faster than the 1080 on average, and performs around the same as a Titan XP. :P

    A single card is always preferred vs SLI. Price & compatibility would be in your favour that way.

    Sure, SLI 1080's are very likely going to outperfom a single 1080TI (always have), not all titles support SLI, and not all that support it support it 'well'.
