"The ASUS STRIX GTX 1080 is a fantastic aftermarket card. It pushes the 1080 stock leaps and bounds forward and does so in style. I could mention that this is one of the more expensive aftermarket cards, but in all honesty if you are buying a GTX 1080, 1) the price tag probably doesn't bother you and 2) you want the best looking, best performing and best available version of the 1080, which is exactly what the STRIX offers. Sure, it is pricey, but a 1080 is pricey and the visuals and added performance you get is definitely worth investing in. No thermal throttling, no ugly green glow, just pure sexy performance, which is exactly what a 1080 should be."
