Still going with what you heard for a March release for the 1080 Ti? I've been trying to keep up with it. Seems a lot of people listen to your input from what you said about the guy at the MSi booth haha.
No problems at all for over 2 months. Seems reinstalling the operating system did it. I think I'm in the clear (knocks on wood).
Yeah, that CES article got picked up by a number of tech news outlets. Some framed it as a "rumor", but given that MSI told me face-to-face that they'll be releasing a GTX 1080 Ti in March, I consider a bit more than rumor! Now, it could be delayed in response to AMD's surprising delay of Vega, but I'm pretty confident it will be here on time. Vega won't quite match the 1080 Ti anyway, but Nvidia will get higher margins if it can price the 1080 Ti without even the hint of competition from AMD.
Glad to hear the reinstall worked. Was that the first time it was done? If so, I'm sorry I didn't recommend it earlier. My guess, however, was that it slowly became corrupted due to the constant crashing caused by the PSU issues you had.
