For $200, he could sell his card and buy a quiet 1080, with change left over.

possibly its a big investment, I guess more worth it when you have the best card there is (excluding Titan Xp of course).

If you want silence + low temps its much easier then a custom loop. (and probly cheaper once u factor everything in (pump/blocks/tubing/res)

I don't know if this is 100% correct but I think that offer expired 2 days ago.
Heard some people complaining they just missed out.

T & C states it's only valid while they have supplies.

Edit: Promo finishes today. You better get in quick.

Guys,

Looking at getting a GTX1080 though my monitor only supports free sync. Does it matter if it's a free sync monitor and you use a Nvidia card? I'm just a Nvidia man and don't want an AMD card ideally.

Brought the monitor about 6 months ago with no intention to game on it but here I am wanting to game on it now. It's an LG UltraWide QHD 3440x1440 IPS Display.

Thanks.

driving around in forza horizon 3 looked beautiful on it though

Cool. Assumed that. Will be playing Squad, BF1 and Tarkov. Worst case I will buy another monitor. Thanks for the reply.
