X'mas Gift Idea 6: One of the most powerful graphics cards you can buy

Note: This year, our gift suggestion series is proudly supported by ASUS and their ROG team. Thank you ASUS!

Destiny 2 is a game that absolutely deserves to be played in 4K, but there are few cards that are capable of pushing that many pixels and delivering a playable experience. The ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is one of the rare few, and it is a beast with a triple-fan cooler and aggressive factory overclocks. 

It features a 1,594MHz base clock and 1,708MHz boost clock in OC Mode, and comes with Aura Sync RGB lighting that you can customize to match the rest of your build.


In addition, it boasts two 4-pin FanConnect II headers that you can hook up your chassis fans to. Fans connected to your motherboard are usually pegged to CPU temperature, but these headers let you link your fan speeds to the GPU instead.

The ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is priced at S$1,349, and you can read more about it in our shootout here.
