Certain nitch situations, like going overboard on skyrim mods or using your card for some armature CAD work while still being able to game on the same rig.
Other than that, he could be thinking like me. I'm on 1080 now
, but only because upgrading my monitor would kill my current GPU, and there aren't any nice 1600p IPS monitors out there yet for any kind of reasonable cost. After upgrading the GPU, and giving it about a year for LG and samsung to release all those new panels they're talking about, I'll no longer be on 1080 and that extra 2gb will matter a lot.
I know some of you like to upgrade to the latest and greatest every time something is released. Personally, I couldn't care less for the prospect of spending as much as 1000 bucks every few months just for a minor, possible not even noticeable upgrade. Never mind having to redo my loop and going without a working rig for a few days or weeks. I upgrade when the performance increase justifies the cost. That means I'll likely be sticking with whatever card I get this gen, for another 2-4 years if GPUs keep up their current pace.Edited by Zero4549 - 7/21/12 at 1:24pm
