nah I'm gonna sell it but not now. I expect Pascal to hit with 1080, just like maxwell did with 980. Even though it might be only a fraction faster than my 980Ti I will sell the 980Ti and get the 1080, cause if I wait this one out my 980Ti will lose half the value by the time 1080Ti arrives. So, my plan: sell 980ti while it's still hot, maybe a few weeks before 1080 arrives, then sell the 1080 a month before 1080ti. Not to lose too much value. A the time 980Ti was introduced at around 3300PLN 2nd hand 780Ti's were like 1700PLN, I don't wanan hang on to the 980ti too long cause its value will plummet in the time between 1080 and 1080Ti for sure.
Plus if you knew me then you'd know I like to shuffle my cards... I had r9 290, 980 and 980Ti, all within 12 months since I started building a gaming rig from scratch in 2014.

can you see the look on AMD's face ? That would surely mean another market share drop. I'm not gonna say a sharp drop cause you can't plummet form a mere 20%. But TBH God only knows what happens, might be AMD that hits first with HBM2 and frankly I'd get that Edited by Klocek001 - 11/8/15 at 10:20am
