Description

Returned to stationary pc from gaming laptops. Wanted to get back into building as its been several years since my last build. Needed to do a lot of research on parts/compatibilty, but all in all, I'm pleased and satisfied with the end result.

What made you want to sli as opposed to buying a 1080ti?

I think so too... But a bit overkill compared to usage of the card...

To begin with, I only ran a single 1080. But I had a long lasting RMA and I didn't have the patience, so I bought another one. (On sale, that's why..:-))

But I'm only seeing SLI-utilizing in some few games, one or two still being in early access, so I'm in a bit of doubt right now, whether to skip one or maybe both and go for a 1080TI/2080...

Did you have to get rid of the wifi card in order to fit the second video card? I am very new to pc building so tips and knowledge would be much appreciated

No, I managed to squeeze it into the bottom PCI-E below the lower 1080.

I want to be able to run nvlink (sli) with three slots for each video card and still fit a wifi card somewhere except for above the top video card as I think it wouldn't look good aesthetically. and I can't find any video cards that let me have those three video card slots and at the same time let me put in a wifi card somewhere underneath a video card (to hide it). Also trying to make the build as compact as possible, so running an eATX mobo wont be an option either

OR maybe if there are any nice RTX 2080 cards taht only take up 2 slots that would solve it too

The EVGA RTX 2080 XC maybe?

Yeah the "gaming" version looks super compact. Thanks for the tip

An option would be to use a mobo with built in wifi. Reason for not settling with that is that I'm not sure if the integrated wifi solution performs as well as the wifi card in pci slot solution does. Any knowledge in this area?
