I was window shopping 1080s for a while until the mining craze threw things out of whack. I saw 1080s as low as 450 at one point, this may have been a fluke I saw one card listed at that price for a few days in May 2017. I've decided to wait for the 1170s. Nvidia has been on about an 18 month release schedule so there should be new cards in late October-November 2017 time frame.
southrncomfortjm comment below mine is correct the 1080s have not been affected as much by the mining craze, I had two points:
1. While watching 1080 prices I was blown away by the price spike of 1170s being withing 50-60 dollars of 1080s.
2. If the 11xx series is maybe 3 months out I dont want to buy a 10xx series card at this point.
