  1. is the 279mm length with or without the rectangled plate with the screwholes? My Minit ITX case can hold around 280mm including the plate, 269mm without.

  2. Right now the gpu costs about 676 dollars . im a csgo player and thinking of buying it . do you recommend??

  3. Quite hot. I do not understand why all the new video card are turned on when the 60 degree is reached or 60 degrees. I've set it up to 40 not to include myself. These 70 and above temperatures do not like me. Although I have a very large box and three 3-way fans out of the hot air. I rarely go over 60 degrees Celsius ( Sapphirte Nitro+ Radeon RX 480 – 8Gb). I want a lot like this because I'm dying after I'm basically working on UltraHD.

  4. Will someone tell me what the extra six pin @ 4:50
    I just built my first PC yesterday, I plugged a pin in it. Idk if that was a good idea or not

  5. Hello i have a question I bought a msi gtx 1080 and I had an msi gtx 980 but my 980 only had 2x8pci but the 1080 is 1×8 1×6 How Can I fix that Please help?

  6. Got this card for $500 on black Friday…. I feel like if anyone is gonna build a computer they should always just wait for the black Friday deals to come…

  7. Is GTX 1080 SEAHAWK X 8GB better than MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X 8GB? 🙂 Im just confused which one should i get? 🙂

  8. I currently have a GTX 770 and i game in 1080p. I am looking for a new card since mine can't keep up in new games anymore, i usualy play in medium settings to get over 60 fps. I want a card that is future proof when i get a 1440p monitor. Will this card last a few years? Please let me know.

    I got a i7 3770 + gtx 770 atm and want to change the gpu into a new high grade one since i can not afford to get a whole new pc at the moment.

  9. ok only think i coul see in the diff between the gaming 1080 and the armor 1080 is armor is a boost cloak of 1.80 and gaming is 1.85 so for a gamer that does not stream should i save the few bucks and go for the armor sense i'm using a i5? plz respon asap

  10. +79531308118 Киви…К примеру 500 человек Пго 100 р кинет ,то я смогу Камп за 50тысч. Купить помогите,кому не жалко хочу 1060 6 гб +i5 6600 ,16gb

  11. Thankyou for Your review! I bought this card two days ago and noticed that the MSI gaming app 6 does't work under Windows 10. Any suggestion will be very appreciated!

  12. Great review, but why ppl never put their games on max settings? This card is top of the line, it is meant to be pushed. They wanna make us believe it'll run any game above 60 but we know it won't. The Witcher 3 post processing medium preset really?
    It can run The Witcher 3 maxed out and hairworks on around 60, and hairworks off around 80, but okay.
