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 rolleyes.gif

Supposedly the 1070 NDA lifts on Monday, you will have much better info to base your choice off of then.

Ahh you are hitting the wall at 1440p? I understand.

Well than 1070 SLI will be more powerful than 1080. If you are OK with SLI go for it. If you are also worried about SLI like me than grab a 1080... (last but not least nothing is wrong with a 350ish 980ti if you can find one with warranty... thumb.gif )

It would only be on par with a single 980ti anyways, the extra ram would make it worth getting the 980ti. The 1070 may be a better deal depending on the 980ti price though. Extra ram, lower power use, better driver improvements etc..
