    There's even talks of lawsuits from members trying to get their money back. Looks like we made the right choice, boys; payday's coming in the next few months :) I do feel bad for those guys though. Hope they get at least a percentage of their money back.

    @xxann5. Coming from the 900 series don't expect to overclock as well as you did jumping to the 1000 series. Nvidia placed a whole bunch of restrictions on oc so most GPU can't past 2.1 GHz; unless you get lucky and win the silicon lottery. Maybe with the Ti they will be more open, though. EVGA is rock-solid, as always.

    The 1080 is around 25% faster than the 980ti and the Titan Pascal is around 20-ish faster than the 1080 and since the Ti tend to offer around titan performance you can reasonably expect a 50% performance increase. Not bad--every bit helps for VR (as I'm learning). Going from the 480 to the 1080 I saw ~5X performance increase; I'm not going to wait that long in the future and I'll upgrade when the next gpu reaches ~2.5x performance compared to the 1080.

    @KellCam_Virtuix. I know, right? Compared to the hybrid the seahawk is more low-profile, more stealth-like if you will. Plus it has the word "seahawk" in the name and the helicopter on the cover are nice cosmetic bonuses imo. Most important, though, is performance: 2.1 GHz OC; ~60 degree full-load in California summer heat; and dead-silent. I'm never going back to blower-style again.

    Chose the Seahawk--I regret nothing! Amazing performance o:)

    Cool. Who would have thought a career in vr is now possible only when a few years ago there wasn't even an industry. Amazing progress we're making.

    Next month is here!!! ... Actually, one more day, but close enough! Here's the quote we've all been waiting for: "We will provide a more detailed production plan in our next update at the end of this month." This update is the big one guys!
