I'll see what happens when Battlefront 2 comes out and the GTX1080ti's successor comes out in "Early 2018" to decide whether to upgrade my cards or not to just one big card.
How are you getting 10%-20% Gpu utilisation in BF1 with x2 1070? This benchmark shows good scaling in BF1 with x2 1080's.

I meant to respond to this a few days ago, but i've got 2x Strix 1080Ti's. Running them both at 110% power limit, full load, my system draws ~700watts.

These things have a power rating of 250W in FE. Strix has iirc 280 or something. The 1080 is only 180W in FE form...They use 1 8 pin, Ti's use at least an 8+6, or in the case of aftermarket ones they use 8+8.

1000w is in no way needed for most cards these days in SLI

Those Galax 1080 EX OC cards are great value, I just picked one up from MSY. Runs pretty cool and is quiet.

It runs fine on the 750w, maxed settings in all games and it pumps, PUBG still has its issues because its about as optimized as a coalfire power plant. Now just waiting for 6+8 cable combs to arrive so I can make it sexy again.
