I'm in a similar situation, if I had a 1070 or better in terms of performance I wouldn't be getting a card at the moment. Since I am I might as well get something good to last me a long while.

I haven't decided on a 1080(bad idea with the enhanced version coming) or a 1080 TI (most likely the EVGA FTW3).

IMO waiting for next gen is always a waste of time for a number of reasons. The main reason to upgrade today is the games you want to play today might not interest you in a few months or a year when the next gen card comes out and that really sucks. upgrade now and in the future upgrade again. i think that every ti is a decent upgrade and every other ti is an amazing upgrade. i upgraded from a 980ti and i have been blow away with the performance of the 1080ti i can tell you without any doubt that your 970 will feel like igpu after you get your hands on a 1080ti.

Buy now enjoy and don't wait.

I still have my 980 Ti/970 both can do 1500+ and was toying around with a 1070 before the Ti with 1440p and now 4K.

The 1080 Ti is a monster and the difference is huge, you will be amazed.

The question is do you want it and will you use it consistently playing games that require it.
You shouldn't ask "should i buy it" you need to be sure yourself and also be ready to spend that money without any doubt.

There is an uneducated way to answer your question but there is also an educated way to answer your question. This may be a long post, I appologize but I also wanted to share my thoughts on another "should I upgrade" question.

The best way to tackle such a question of yours is to answer a few question biggrin.gif then ... using the answers provided, you can make your decision. Don't worry, i have seen many that ask if they should upgrade, and I try to lead you to the right choice.

Ask your self :
- What are your expectations from your PC?
- What resolution do you game on and what is the refresh rate of your monitor?
- How often do you game?
- What games do you play?
- What would satisfy you when it comes to PC performance?
- Are you satisfied with 60 FPS or do you require more? such as 120+ 140+ 160+ etc etc...
- Do you happen to be able to afford the upgrade you are seeking?
- What is your average Vram usage when playing your games? (do you require more vram etc)
and many more...

The answers to the questions above would literally be the answer to your "Should I upgrade" question.

If you seem to demand or require higher performance that will make you satisfied at your games, then an upgrade would be what you want to do.

I'll give you an example... I personally game at 1080p (right now, planning to upgrade), I have a 144hz monitor thus I require my games to run at 100+ FPS as to be able to get the best gaming experience. I am extremely picky when it comes to game performance, high refresh rates, high frame rates and compatibility etc.. I had a GTX 980 Ti, it was a great card and i loved it. I didn't want to sell it but for a number of games I play, I just wanted... "more"... when the 1080 Ti was released, and I saw it affordable, I went ahead and sold my 980 Ti and purchased myself a 1080 Ti. I do not regret the upgrade infact I recommend the upgrade for those that are under the same circumstances as me. It is very important to need higher frames at higher refresh rates and lower latency to make such an upgrade. I hope this was helpful, Good luck!

I enjoy 1080p and 60fps and I want to play all games on ultra. I personally find that 22"monitor is best for me, dont why but on bigger ones my eyes hurt and dont feel very comfortable. Also I want some futureproof gpu if I decide to get better monitor when prices drop.

Also you wouldnt belive it but price difference between 1080 gaming x and 1080ti gaming x is 40$ and only two of 1080ti is avaialble in store where I am buying and I got one smile.gifsmile.gif

If you're not moving from 1080, you really don't need a 1080ti to maintain 60fps. A 1070 will take care of that thumb.gif
And remember, you can OC that 1070 to match a stock 1080...even better for the price you pay thumbsupsmiley.png

Dont get a 1080ti for 1080p gaming its a waste of money. Get a cheap 980ti or a 1070 whichever is less money.
