Is it realy worth it to pay 139€ diference ?
My only consern is Nvidia may be Gimping the 980ti suport .
DX12 will be important for new games.. The GTX1070 might cost more up front, but it means you won't be forced to upgrade for a longer time.
Don't worry about NVIDIA gimping support.
NVIDIA continues releasing drivers for GPUs for about 10 years after release.
For example, the GeForce 8000 series (2006/2007) got its lastest driver released just this March. Nothing to worry about. http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/99998
AMD, on the other hand, already abandoned HD6000 series (2010) just 6 years after release and is now considered 'legacy'. (Last driver released November 2015).
