Bad timing on this deal, the new Nvidia Turing cards will likely be announced & on sale by mid April. The only GPU anyone should buy at present is an EVGA model because of their ‘step up’ program, otherwise you’re paying $950 for a gpu that will be compara to the next generation’s mid-tier Model that usually launches at a price betwee $450 & $550. And as this drop doesn’t ship until 3/19, it just makes it more frustrating.
My advice, register for email notifications on evga for sll of their 1080ti cards and buy whatever comes in stock first. register the card And when the new cards get released use EVGA’s step up to get the next gen card.
Not taking a swing at massdrop, just my honest advice.
