Make sure you are absolutely ready to make this decision! Personally, I have a very "dont look back, no regrets" type of mindset now that I really never used to have and my life improved dramatically because of it (not trying to rant). I was struck with the question.."Do i really need to spend almost $1000 to upgrade my computer gaming experience.." (New 1440p monitor, GTX1070, Zowie EC2A, New mousepad, sweet LED lighting behind my 3 monitors, upgraded fans for case) and the question was NO. I do not NEED to do it, but i WANTED to and that made the purchase feel so much better. I am pretty straight with my money, and have always questioned my buys after the fact. But when it came to this with computers being my main hobby and me spending so much time at work and at home on the computer, it was totally justifiable to myself. Needless to say, I am extremely happy with my upgrades and it just makes the experience so much better now for gaming. Also considering I fell off from the competitive, best stats best gameplay type to a more "try hard casual" competitive player. I prefer beautiful, ultra settings now at 1440p, smoothness and just overall immersion into the game now.
You won't regret the upgrade GRANTED you do not get an extremely crappy card but you always have options to RMA, sell, try something else out. But if everything goes as planned (and if your a huge geek like me) be prepared for something great! (i may take these things a little too serious, but whatever
