I'm with all of you guys.... I'm going to wait for the 1080 Ti.
The only thing I'm having trouble resisting is, this urge to buy another 980 Ti when I see them going for $400 and less right now....
I mean, I REALLY want to pull the trigger..... But then, getting the 1080 Ti would basically be matching the performance I'd get with 2 980 Ti's (if we're lucky) as a single card solution. I had 2 x 970's, and while I loved them, I got so sick of the SLI support battle and decided I wanted to go single card, so i found a good deal on an eVGA refurbished 980 Ti SC+for $375 (no idea how I managed it) and replaced my 970's with one ti. It's been fantastic, giving the same performance as the 970's in supported SLI but with just the one card, however, as I said, now I'm itching to get a second 980 Ti again....
Mine is overclocked to 1500MHz on stock BIOS (even with voltage set 1.28V in custom BIOS, I can't get my clocks any higher) and there's literally just one or two titles that I fall below my minimum frame rate threshold on, whereas in everything else, I'm getting well above 85 FPS at 1440p, even in titles like the Witcher 3 on high settings. I just want to be able to keep that minimum 90 FPS mark in ALL titles at 1440p and I'll be happy. 4K is no big deal to me - 1440p is plenty adequate in games. A second 980 Ti will get me there for sure, but then I'll be fighting with developers in supporting SLI again and I don't want to deal with that.
I suppose the obvious thing to do is just be patient, enjoy the great performance I already get with my 980 Ti, and wait for the 1080 Ti. I'm just having a hard time controlling myself though
