Pokdepinion: Now we have over 100 kinds of NVIDIA GTX 1070 graphics cards, it just matters which one fit the budget. Also, it now makes me wonder why the EXPEDITION line up which is made for durability in gaming cafe environments, why did ASUS just use their existing TUF branding which signifies durability and endurance in the first place.
