The general consensus here is that the 1080ti is amazing value given its long lifespan.
Makes sense.For me its because the 1080ti was a $700 card (if you were lucky enough to get one pre mining spike, I paid 800 IIRC, which was a steal at the time) and the main reason it has held value is because the 2xxx series is so overpriced. If Nvidia would have stuck with it's normal trend of 2080ti being the same or only slightly more expensive than the last gen equivalent tier gpu then many of us would have upgraded. Sure the card has had longevity but only because 2080ti was $1200 and nothing less is a worthwhile upgrade @ sub4k.
I'm certainly not saying the 1080ti is a bad card, it doesn't owe me anything. But it hasn't done anything to make my favorite GPU list. I would be more apt to put the normal 1080 from my spare rig on my favorite list. It was much cheaper and has had pretty much the same longevity.
Going back quite a few years here, but I'd say the Voodoo 2 was my favorite as it was the card that finally revealed to me what PC gaming had over consoles.
Yeah, Forsaken blew me away. That game was so good.
Did you see they made a remaster?
For me it was both Forsaken and the OG Unreal. They absolutely floored me with their beefed up visuals on PC.

My previous card - gigabyte gtx 980ti g1. Had been using it for almost 4 years(the longest period for me). Have never had any issues, it was awsome clocker (on stock it boosted to 1450MHz and it could use it for playing at 1600 for the core). Only its age and a good bargain pushed me to sell and replace it.
