alright i settled on a getting a 980ti. now time to look more into what 980ti to get. i'll probably create an appropriate thread in nvidia subform.

I personally think this is a mistake! If nVidia's dx12 woes are true, your card will be as useful as your 470 is now when new titles are released.

I'd personally get a cheap hold over until Pascal. A 290, 290x, 780ti, and the 970 will push all dx9/11 titles at 1080p.

If Pascal weren't around the corner than the 980ti would be a great choice, but the next generation of GPUs is more like the jump the from the 200 series to Fermi than the marginal performance/infrastructure gains we're seeing now.

To OP: If youre going to upgrade your gpu in like a year then its fine to go with 980ti. If 5 years to upgrade then you should wait. We all know how precious money is.

You will regret waiting more than possible buyer's remorse a year later. Do what you feel like doing.

this is how i feel.

its been 5 years of waiting around the corner for me lol

"guys, 5xx series is around the corner, wait for it!" "5xx comes out, guys 6xx series is around the corner wait for it!" now we're on 9xx series. how much more do people want to keep telling me to wait tongue.gif

if fables dx12 benchmark is true, then current generation, it doesn't seem async really hurt nvidia as much as that ashes benchmark showed. considering the 980ti is the top dog in all of them for fables.

unless someone can show me newer benchmarks of fury x's performance increasing from the new drivers, then i'm really settled on the 980ti. possible 970 sli if more information is posted about dx12 and vram stacking.

onyl that for the same money you will get a way lower power consumption, newer tech, and a 20%+ faster gpu at least

a cheap place holder is the best choice

I agree with all of these, only because I have a tight budget and prefer to get the best Performance-Price ratio out of my hardware. Now, if money is not an issue, Sure, get that 980Ti now and then just upgrade when the next-gen cards release next year. That being said and myself being in a similar situation. I chose to buy a used 290X ($215) which in basically on the same level as the GTX 970. You just need to determine if you really need all that power and if youll be applying it. I personally dont play many games that are currently running insane graphics that the 290X cant handle, with the exception of the game ARK. Id much rather spend $200 now, upgrade later, and probably still be able to sell this 290X for $200 in a year then to spend $700 now, upgrade in a year, and make half my money back. Id be much more upset with myself for making a money losing situation now then to play it safe and miss out on few FPS but keep money in my pocket, but im only saying this because I mainly focus on Performance-Price ratio of things and dont mind buying used things knowing that next years model will be here soon. Ultimately, I personally would never go back to SLI/Crossfire unless proven the drivers get much better, and in your situation, Id probably buy a single, used, GTX 970 or 290X and spending that extra money saved on something id use more such as new speakers, faster SSD, etc etc and just spending the big bucks on the Pascal GPUs when they release.
