Building a PC with the GTX 1080 Ti

NVIDIA has just released the GTX 1080 Ti, with the company claiming that their new card is up to 35% faster than the already beastly GTX 1080 in some instances. If you’re going for an all-out gaming PC, look no further.

We’ve crafted three different PC builds to take advantage of NVIDIA’s new powerhouse graphics card: One with an ATX Full tower, one with an ATX Mid Tower, and finally a small form factor build. The ATX builds are using AMD’s newly released Ryzen 7 1800X and 1700X chips to make well-rounded workstation builds, while the SFF build will be using an i7-7700K, still the best gaming CPU.

All the builds are targeted at 1440p or 4K gaming, which is where the lower single-threaded performance of the Ryzen CPUs is less of an issue. Click on the links to go directly to the product page.
