16g vram seems a little nuts given the current price but maybe die shrinks and newer tech have allowed them to use the same number of chips for 16g ending up with a price not much higher than they currently pay for 8g

and if true im very happy that they are moving forward in this area making room for higher quality textures

Added ryzen 7 as a option which obviously helps when rendering\streaming but for current games your better of putting cash towards the gpu unless your just looking for something to tide you over till next gen

ORDERED:
GPU: nVidia GTX 1080Ti 11GB -- Scorptec: $1149

hope you don't mind a little noise under load being ether a blower or a mini model

you could tweak the power tune profile so it runs a bit slower and produces less heat\noise

if it really bothers you or you want to oc the gpu then you could probably do a diy install of a aio cooler
