post #731 of 11184
So let me raise an argument then:

Are you planning on upgrading your monitor? If not, you're completely wasting your money buying a 1080 over a 1070 for 1080p...completely my opinion, though.

I hope you're able to see where others are coming from, now.

not that it concerns you, but yes I am. I'm going for a 1440p or an ultra wide (2560x1080). No it's fine that you have an opinion on that. Again many would agree with you and many would disagree that a single 1080 will allow me to max out every/majority of games @ 1080p. But hey that's your opinion.

So now you're acting offended that we're questioning you and criticizing your plans of purchase/upgrade path? I mean, even then, a GTX 1070 is more than enough....IMO.

I hope you're understanding the point I'm making here is that this is a forum where people want performance; and while we may not understand everyone's setup, there's no use criticizing it in the way that you, or I (in these past two posts) are.

Who cares if you want to use a 1080 in 16:9 or 21:9 1080p? I think it's awesome, and with 240Hz monitors on the hoirzon, this actually makes sense to me. Even if it didn't, who cares?! It's your money and your prerogative.

In the end, we all need to understand that we are a community here and this thread is not here for this kinda stuff. Get your 1080s, overclock them, and bench and/or game with them! thumb.gifgrouphug.gif

I do understand what you're saying. Fair enough I suppose. But I hope you agree we're all allowed to voice our opinions. Just as you had your say, I had mine. Same with anyone else smile.gif

I do smile.gif. It just came off harsh, and that's why everyone jumped down your throat tongue.gif.

EDIT: BTW, I took a look at your rig pictures and it's very clean! Nice job thumb.gif.
