Upgrade from GTX 780 to 1070 or wait till Volta series? - Page 9

post #81 of 84
Well here is the problem. You don't know they are upgrading in 2017 that was just a rumor. And that was on the commercial end. You have to read the fine print of these rumors. Our graphics cards wouldn't be released until well after that.

You should absolutely and unequivocally assume you won't be able to get a Volta until 2018 and make your decision with that.

Months of enjoyment of playing games on a 1070 and maybe losing $50 reselling the card before Volta hits if you deem it a worthy upgrade...

or continue gaming on an 780 which clearly lacks the power to properly max out at 1440p.

GPUs are one of the worst investments you can make especially after a new card is released and especially with a shiny new architecture like Volta. Buying and selling used cards while recouping most of your costs is not something you should ever plan on.

You can buy a used GTX 770 for $100. That was a $400 card.

GTX 970 you can buy used for $170.

So if you sell your 1070 for $170 in 2 years that is a $230 loss minimum.

Lock this damn thread. Why do people keep responding to this thread? OP never looked at a single post and just stupid countless arguments for nothing.

Mod? Please lock.

Thanks! thumb.gif

Let's clear this one up.

Stock vs. Stock, the 1070 beats a 980 Ti.

Stock vs. Stock, the 1070 clobbers the vanilla 980.

A 980 overclocked cannot touch a 1070 (which can overclock as well). HOWEVER, an overclocked 980 Ti will beat an overclocked 1070. The other factor you have to consider is that the 980 Ti pulls a lot more power from the wall. It also gives off a lot more heat.

Let's try and remain civil in this thread. Cocky posts without proof are frowned upon. wink.gif
