I decided to do some PC upgrades and long story short it turned into a whole new build.
 I have a GTX 1080 SC in my current rig that I was planning on using in the new one.
Being that I’ll be selling that once the new one is done I had to get a different card for it.
I ordered an Asrock Phantom Radeon RX 580 which specs suggest is a pretty good card.
My question is....  do I stick with my original plant to keep the 1080 and put the RX 580 in the rig I’m selling or do I just leave the 1080 in there and keep the 580.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I put these two cards against each other on the Game Debates.com hardware comparison tool.  The GTX 1080 comes up as a 41% better performer than the AMD RX 580.  I couldn't find a GTX 1080 SC listed, so I don't know how much that would change things.  They had a GTX 1080ti SC, that was 11 GB, and it was 67% faster than the AMD RX 580.

You can follow this link to the comparison and then change the drop down fields to whatever you want to compare.  I've found it to be very helpful in making hardware decisions over the years:
