I'm on the same boat. I have zero interest in upgrading my 980 Ti at the moment. It maxes out every game I play at 1440p so it would be a waste of money for me. Once the 980 Ti is released I'll check out the benchmarks and if they look good I'll buy one of those and upgrade to a 4k monitor at the same time.

Gigabyte G1 Gaming 7 Z170 Motherboard - Intel i7 6700k @ 4.7Ghz (1.38v) - G.Skill Trident Z 3400Mhz DDR4 - Gigabyte Aorus 1080 Ti @1.093v 2126/12.2Ghz - Dual Samsung 500Gb SSD's - Evga G2 1300w PSU - Phanteks Enthoo Primo

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

I also was tempted by the 980 Ti SLI scenario. It's just another hole I don't want to dig myself into. Best to wait for a single card solution if one exists for your needs.

Someone already nabbed my 980 Ti, and I didn't get a great amount (400). I'm still kicking myself for not selling my 980 Ti sooner (I had interested buyers for $550 just before the 1080 info dropped). I foresee myself buying a 1080, and selling that for the Ti when that drops.

I don't think there is a verified 980 ti sold for under $400. I've been trolling /r/hardwareswap for 48 hours attempting to sell one of mine and offers are consistent $400-450 (but they want me to pay shipping and 3% Paypal fee's of course). Lots of people are trying to bash the 980 TI saying it sold x2 for 275 and when asked for proof no response for days + deleted post.

Selling a 980 TI under $400 (in good condition) sounds insane to me, I didn't want to go below 500 shipped tbh.




https://redd.it/4mzyyi I sparked a 20 comment conversation about the value of 980 TI cards in this thread. I think the average of both sides (save those with -3 or more down votes is accurate at this current time.

My theory is after the hype dies on the 1070 and the 1080 is common knowledge not a single card solution let alone 60+ fps 4k native solution the price will even out (theory).

I would hold just a moment before going 980Ti SLI. Many games wont support it or give less-than-desired SLI scaling, and probably gonna get you into forums looking for specific SLI bits in a desperate attempt to get an increase of 50% or more fps, potential glitches and CTDs. (I own SLI).

Think about how much you could charge for a used 980Ti in about 7-8 months (That was the time that passed between 980 and 980Ti launch dates). My guess would be somewhere lower than a brand new GTX1070 with a penalty for being used and one generation old. $275-300?

So, unless its a pretty good deal, I would stay with a single card, specially at 1080@60hz nice AA. If you fancy a 144hz monitor, a SLI con give some really silky smooth gameplay when applicable.

I keep seeing many people complain about sli performance in games. While some are not 100% perfect I've yet to encounter a game that it had bad performance. What game are you guys running which has such bad sli performance?
