Is $499 for a 1080 a good price?

Depends on what it does for you. For example, if monitor is 1080p, I wouldn't go that way.

But $500 is $50 lower than any price on pcpartpicker, so for "right now", that's a good buy

looking at what card delivers most bang for the buck ....At 1440p ....

The reference cards stack up as follows in total performance per techpowerup @ 1440p

1080 Ti = 95
1080 = 74
1070 = 59

Add in the typical overclocking and ....

1080 Ti = 95 x 1.15 = 109
1080 = 74 x 1.16 = 86
1070 = 59 x 1.13 = 67

Add in current pricing .... and we see that at $500, that 1080 delivers the most performance per dollar. At the $550 price every where else, the Ti is more attractive (assuming you can use all that power) but at $500, grab it while ya can

1080 Ti = 109 / $710 = 0.154
1080 = 86 / $500 = 0.172
1070 = 67 / $450 = .149
