So right now I have an EVGA 1080 SC (not overclocked currently but I easily could). I am currently in the queue to step up to a FE 1080ti because my 90 day period ends in about 10 days (And i doubt they will bring an aftermarket cooled card in that time). My question is how much more performance do you think a 1080ti FE will get with the minimal amount of overclocking it can do due to thermal throttling vs. the potential amount of performance gained from overclocking my 1080 SC? Is it worth the ~$100 to upgrade to the FE right now? I am not currently planning to water-cool anything.

    You looking at 15-30 fps on top of your existing fps from 1080sc.

    Well worth it for a 100 Bucks, but not knowing what hardware you have no one can really say.

    Thanks for the reply. I have some standard stuff. 600w power supply, ASUS z68 motherboard and I am still running an overclocked 2600k at 4.5ghz currently at 1080p 144hz but most likely going to be going up to 2k 144hz soon. My processor(and RAM/motherboard) is next on my upgrade list though as I am aware that a 2600 could possibly bottleneck a 1080ti. Hopefully Ryzen 5 will be promising for a gaming chip. I'm just one of those crazy enthusiasts that can't get enough frames.

    As someone who just sent the 1080 SC back to EVGA yesterday and is now waiting on his Ti shipment I can say it was most definitely worth it and I don't even have the Ti yet.
     
    I built my first new custom PC in 16 years a month ago (and honestly didn't know that the Ti was coming or I'd have probably waited) and I went with EVGA because I got good recommendations on their warranty and CS... and the fact they had a step up program was the clincher.
     
    Here we are a month later and I'm getting 35% increased performance on top of what I just paid $559 for...
     
    For $140?
     
    Easy decision.  This machine is already a beast... and for a minimal extra cost it's just that much better for that much longer.  Don't get me wrong, the 1080 is a monster card and if it weren't for step up I probably wouldn't upgrade because I'd take a loss... but given the situation it's a ridiculously easy decision.
     
    ... thanks EVGA.  :)
     
    BTW, the 7700k built in graphics does 4k!  I was surprised!  LOL

    Thanks for the input. That's what my thought process was too, and I most likely wouldn't upgrade either if it weren't for the step up program, hence why I am doing it now instead of waiting for the aftermarket cards. Just trying to future-proof for as long as possible.

    Here's a comparison in oc (I think that the 1080Ti has a little more room for oc) with my previous 1080FTW ;)

    Yep... that's the whole point.
     
    After having just bought a 1080 for $559 I don't see myself selling it at a loss ($400?) and then buying a $700 Ti... but for $150 I'm all over it despite the fact the 1080 is a beast.
     
    I should have the super beast by this time next week.

    1080 Ti is worth it. I loved my 2 1070 FTW2's but for only like.. $80 more I could have the 1080 Ti, was a no brainer for me. Sucked being without a desktop for like a week, but I had my Alienware 17 R3 back then to game on so wasn't a total loss. Now my 15 R3 is about 1/2 of my desktop so if my desktop crashes Im not left out.
