980 Ti for $400 or 1070 for $525?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello. I am gaming at 1080p@60, and I will be for a while with no intention of upgrading resolutions or refresh rates.
I have an opportunity to by a second hand Zotac 980 Ti Amp! Extreme for $400, or a brand new Zotac 1070 Amp! Extreme for $525.

I will not be upgrading for quite a while. Which one do you all think is the better buy?

Thank you in advance for all of your responses.

980ti all the way.

$125 more does not get a $125 faster card. It gets 1-2% faster, but mostly equal card.

For that much of a price different, the 980 Ti is a no-brainer. If it was only $10-20, I would go with the 1070, though.

Just talk him down to $380 for the 98p Ti.

Either card will be beyond excellent for 1080p. I would buy the 980 Ti assuming it has warranty, and because you'll get some insane clocks out of that version I am sure. Plus if you can talk him down to around $380 like the other user said that would be great as well.

I talked him to $380 and it has over a year left on the warranty.
