MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11GB
May 16, 2017

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11GB: Affordable but excellent GTX 1080 Ti

If you want to spend a bit less, MSI has the best alternative. The GTX 1080 Ti Gaminx X is significantly cheaper than the Gigabyte card while not being loud or slow, however it's a bit less powerful in every area. The cooling efficiency is excellent and if you tune the fan profile a little you can make the card just as silent, if not even more silent than the Gigabyte Aorus.

The GTX 1080 Ti Strix OC is not a bad buy at all. It's nice and fast and packs plenty of features, such as Aura Sync and FanConnect, however the card is not the quietest.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 OC LP 2GB: Ideal card for a HTPC

The Gigabyte GTX 1050 OC LP is affordable and ideal for a HTPC: it's low-profile, not longer than a motherboard in fact, and what's more, it's also fairly quiet. A second HDMI port makes things even better.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Mini ITX OC 8GB
September 2, 2016

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Mini ITX OC 8GB: The fastest Mini-ITX graphics card at the moment

If you have a compact case that is too small to house a full-size graphics card, this Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Mini-ITX is the card for you. It is clearly faster than the R9 Nano, up until this point the fastest option for a so-called ‘ITX graphics card.’ However, if you have room for a bigger card, we advise you to utilize this space.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti

MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6GB
July 22, 2015

MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6GB: Sharply priced GTX 980 Ti without any disadvantages.

A GTX 980 Ti with good performance, adequate cooling and a low noise level. The card doesn't stand out in terms of clock frequencies or overclocking potential, but we weren't able to find any real downsides to this card. Combine that fact with the good price and it makes this card from MSI the ideal GTX 980 Ti for the 'normal' gamer.
