With no more performance optimizations from Nvidia for Maxwell, horrible DirectX 12 performance compared to even Pascal, losing performance in newer APIs and losing the only advantage Maxwell had (API overhead) I'd say the Fury non X is infinitely a better card to buy compared to the 980Ti if you're going to keep it through all of 2017, hell, even the RX 480 to a lesser extent.
Anyone even remembers Kepler? It wasn't that long ago, while the 290X which is even older is still going strong, even competing against the GTX 980 in some cases.
I would however buy a GTX 1070, and I did, the G1 Gaming, but I would buy a Fury instead of a Maxwell Titan X any day of the week.
