Newegg has a factory overclocked MSI GTX 1080 on sale for $500 | PCWorld

Until Monday, Newegg has the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Duke 8G OC on sale for $500. The regular list price of that model is $580, and Amazon sells several similar MSI cards around that price. Sweetening the pot is a free game: Newegg is offering your choice of either For Honor or Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
MSI's Duke GTX 1080 is a dual-slot card with 8GB 256-bit GDDR5X memory, a core clock of 1708MHz and a boost clock of 1847MHz. This model has three fans and is rocking three DisplayPort 1.4 ports, one DL-DVI-D, and one HDMI 2.0. The card supports up to four monitors and is SLI- and VR-ready.
There's actually an even better deal for a GTX 1080 today that is also from Newegg (via eBay), but the deal is so limited that it can only play second fiddle to today's primary deal.
With the formalities out of the way, hold onto your hats. Newegg is selling a Gigabyte GTX 1080 with 8GB of GDDR5X memory for $420 on eBay. This item is being sold in very limited quantities—less than 700 units total, with 390 sold at this writing. There is a small catch, of course: Newegg does not offer returns on this eBay store purchase.

I've personally been partial to EVGA for many years now. Looks like a good deal though, thanks for posting.

Yeah I like EVGA too, but, I wouldn't touch the Ebay listing; gotta be a reason especially not offering returns.

My friend got the Newegg/Ebay one. He has had Gigabyte in the past no problems.

Same here, EVGA FTW! ;) Sweet deal though.

Everytime I look at a new graphics card I wonder whether the time has come to upgrade my board / CPU. Still running a Sandybridge i5. So far it's not bottlenecking and haven't encountered a game which makes significant use of more than 4 CPU threads.

I think I'll need an i7 though.
