I had a 1080ti sli set up and got rid of one of the cards. After doing a lot of reading about sli it seems to do more harm then good. Very few game can make use of it is what I gathered. So my suggestion would be get one of the other two cards. I think as far as performance both will be about the same from the reviews I've read.

Case:Cooler Master Sniper / Motherboard : ASUS ROG Maximus X hero (wi-fi)/ CPU: Intel Core i7 8086K / CPU HS:Corsair H100i V2
VGA: MSI 1080 TI  OC Armor with Arctic Accelero Xtreme 3 Cooler / Memory: Corsair vengeance LPX  16GB DDR4 3600 / SSD's:Samsung  960 evo M.2 500 gig  for OS + Samsung EVO 840 250g +WD Blue 500g
PSU: CoolMax 1200W / Monitor: Acer X34 @ 100 hz/ KB: CM Storm Trigger Z / Mouse: Razor Lachesis / OS: Windows 10 Home premium 64

SLI support ended with DX11. There is no SLI support in DX12. SLI only adds FPS boost according to the optimization of the game engine,.. often the secondary card put's out nothing.

 

Running SLI 1070's with 4th gen i5 4c/4t cpu, you will take a sizable hit to performance on multiple thread games that support SLI as threads become choked.

 

Best bang for your buck at the moment would be GTX 1080 Ti with 11GB GDDR5X for $650.
