    "If you are a gamer, this card is for you (if you can afford it) It's great for what it does, including 4G and virtual reality platforms, but the price can be a factor. I would buy one if I had the money, but the card costs almost as much as my computer. For the serious gamer, for the casual, I'd look for something less expensive."

    "Looks the GTX 1080 family is still the graphics cards to beat, and let's face it, graphic cards prices are definitely ridiculous right now but seriously, $1,274.99? No, there is no way that the Zotac GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme is that much better than other 1080's that justifies that price."

    "The ASUS meets my need for a GTX 1080 card, although I'd like a little more confidence that it is a best buy. There are only 3 ratings on Ebay for it, although they are all 5 star. I won't buy it based on the Ebay website I was taken to, but might consider doing some Google searches on my own to try to find more reliable information and additional reviews to determine whether the ASUS is a "best" model."

    "If only it wasn't so darn expensive! I have built 3 PCs over my years of gaming. My next system will most definitely at least have a 1060 in it. Always good to know what the best parts are. Which companies are making the best parts is sometimes very hard information to come by with how many companies their are. "
