I know you're tired of seeing this........but

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 980 Ti and am kind of torn. Should I buy a second one used or a sell mine and buy 2 GTX 1070. I realize that the 1070 isn't a huge performance difference but would i be better off that way due to the extra 2gb of VRAM? Either 2 cards I own would be watercooled and kept until the 1100 series comes out and will be used for 1440p 144hz gaming so I want the most of what I can get to last a couple years.

Any opinions are appreciated

Go for 980 ti SLI or sell your card and go for a 1080 and then upgrade to 1080 SLI in the future. The VRAM really won't matter since the 980 ti won't really come close to maxing out at 1440p since it doesn't even max out at 4k.

Sounds like price isn't an issue for you though I could be mistaken, why not sell your 980Ti and go with a single 1080?

My main thing was I didn't want to watercool until I had both cards just because I know I won't want to re do hard tubing just to add a second card to the loop. A bit lazy, yes, Just want to limit possible breaking/headaches to a minimum.

Well, all the watercooling supplies would be bought over the summer, I am just not 100% sure I would get around to adding a second card if I wait while, I personally don't like single GPU waterbuilds but that is personal preference. Looks like I have a lot more to consider before I actually do anything.

Either buy second cheap 980Ti from second-hand and go SLI and/or upgrade to Pascal Titan or 1080Ti when they come out.
