That 970 is beating a 980 too if you didn't notice.. They're all easily over 100 fps anyway so I'm not sure what you're trying to say.. The 970 is going to get demolished in newer titles, DX12 ones in particular.
Keep recommending a 970, i just feel sorry for whoever believes you.
I also posted a link to a great deal of other benchmarks.
I have made no mention of recommending a 970 at its current price point. My point is that an overclocked 970 beats an overclocked RX 480. If you have something to dispute that, I suggest you post it.
My problem is that it seems the crux of your argument is 'wait'. Wait for games where the 970 gets beaten; they're coming, believe me. What kind of argument is that? It's worthless. The 970 has the performance and the efficiency right now, and in every game released up until this point.
