I was already impressed with what MSI did with their GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G, and the same applies here. I could pretty much copy/paste the entire review for the most part, except for the price/performance discussion, which we'll have now. Right now, MSI's GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G is listed on Amazon for $570 or so, with delivery expected between July 1-8, depending on where you purchase it from.
At $150 cheaper (even with the amped up pricing) than the GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G, the GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G represents amazing performance per dollar. With performance that rivals the GTX 1080 Founders Edition, and sometimes even beats it, the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G represents even better value for money than its bigger and sometimes faster big brother. The GTX 1080 is an amazing card, don't get me wrong, but performance per dollar is very important, too.
This is where MSI paints a great picture with their GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G, as we have near GTX 1080 levels of performance, for $200 less - and then some overclocking headroom which provides, even more, value for money. Where can you go wrong? The Twin Frozr VI cooler keeps the entire card nice and cool under those all-night gaming sessions, and better yet, it's completely silent under load, just like its more expensive sibling.
Do I recommend MSI's GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G? Hell yes. It's a fantastic video card for the price, with silent operation and a slick look that MSI continues with from previous generation cards. MSI hasn't stepped wrong with the GeForce 10 series yet!
