I know there's never a "good time" to buy a card but are there any potential price drops or new releases on the horizon? I can wait until the end of May before just picking up a 1080.

I live in Canada if that makes a difference.

I don't think anyone can give you a 100% confident answer but since the 1080 Ti is out you have probably seen the one real big price drop on the 1080. Vega might move prices a bit if they offer better price/performance but I can't see the 1080 dropping much more. I am actually surprised the 1070 has dropped more since they are priced so close to the 1080 after the price drop.
