the 1080 kicks the 780's a$$.
when you change it, reinstal the nvidia drivers.

1080 is much faster, more efficient so uses less power and runs cooler, a very good upgrade

Con's
Cost, processor may limit the new GPU but by very little, depends on game and resolution, more so with 2 GPU's
If your using Windows 10, it needs to be version 1151 or newer, or new drivers will not install
