Well appereantely SLI scaling will be better with the 10xx series.
If I were in your shoes I would concentrate on 2 1070s. Better SLI scaling and less power usage compared to 980tis.
If you already had 980ti though I would tell you to grab a second one used.
Now a very very very crazy thought. I do not like SLI much. It is there for some games and not for others. When it works it works great but sometimes the 2nd GPU is useless. If you were a 1440p 60hz user I would say go for a single GPU but for 1440p 144hz you might want to wait for 1080ti.
Maybe get a cheap 970 and SLI it while waiting for 1080ti? I know it is a crazy thought.
Edit : I am a 4K gamer and 4k 60 fps requirement is very close to 2k 144 fps requirement. And a single 980ti works great so a 1080 will work a bit better too. But can you imagine how 1080ti would be Edited by iARDAs - 5/28/16 at 12:40am
