On the odd occasion it is in stock, the GIGABYTE AORUS GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce Xtreme will cost you $1300 or more, about twice what the MSRP is.  The liquid cooled card does come with overclocking, Gaming mode offers 1607MHz Base and 1721MHz Boost Clock, OC mode is 1632MHz Base and 1746MHz Boost Clock.  [H]ard|OCP managed to hit an impressive 2038MHz Base, 2050MHz Boost with 11.6GHz VRAM.  Check out the full review to see what that did for its performance.

"GIGABYTE has released a brand new All-In-One liquid cooled GeForce GTX 1080 Ti video card with the AORUS Waterforce Xtreme Edition video card. This video card gives the Corsair Hydro GFX liquid cooled video card some competition, with a higher out-of-box clock speed we’ll see how fast this video card is and if there is any room left for overclocking."

This card is a beast!!! Picked mine up a few months ago, at much more palatable price. $1300... Ouch.

Card is awesome though. Hits 2000 mhz outta the box... No tweaks. Stays super cool n quiet... My case fans are louder, and I have them running only at a measly 800rpm. Currently driving 3 4k monitors. Freaking love this card!

Evga still offers them at regular price on their web store. They also announce availability on their forums and on Twitter. It's one of the only ways to buy properly priced graphics cards these days.

The $800 I paid for my Sea Hawk X in November seems like a bargain now. Dogged the Bitcoin bullet.

$1300 isn't exactly close to double $819.99...

I didn't spot the MSRP for this exact model right off the bat so I went with the Founders Edition for times sake, point is still valid even if the rough estimate is not exactly correct.

You probably should have just said 'about twice' instead of 'exactly twice' to avoid confusing the literal.net trolls.

Where's the fun in that?  I love watching the overly persnickety go insane over a small detail which has almost no impact on the actual story ... especially when it is a single word in a posts title.
