Thanks, this is very useful! I was looking at the 1080 and the pricing 
is fairly acceptable.

Will keep in mind about CR version. Actually, we wouldn't be buying 
anything except for the GPUs. It seems like a colleague of ours is 
unhappy with the performance of his Xeon-based workstation and we might 
commandeer it to ease his pain.
