I use two 1920x1200 monitors at 60 hz and don't have any immediate plans to upgrade them. I guess the fact that I am still within my return period has me stressing whether or not I should pull the trigger on the TI even though it is currently overkill for my setup.... What would you guys do?
It is a tough call, but I think for me the deciding factor would be SLI. If you even think you MIGHT get SLI in the future, I'd go with the 980Ti.Some general PROs/CONs for your situation.PRO for Ti:
better for SLI. (2) 980s beat a 980Ti, but (2) 980Ti's are another level (6k CUDA cores vs 4k, 4GB vs 6GB vram)
Considerably faster than 980 (1k more cores, 384-bit memory vs 256-bit)
2GB more vram, future proof
Pretty soon 1080P monitors will be like 800x600 SVGA CRTs and VHS tapes
Yes 4K is that
Single card is virtually 4K ready, 4K monitors are cheap now and getting cheaper..
bragging rights to be the first 980Ti MOD in this thread CON for Ti
$230 of coin is not cheap especially if you are already happy with your current FPS
Do you actually have performance issues in games?
What you have now pushes 1080P just fine.
Using the MOD for your 980 you've shortened the gap between your card and 980Ti performance.
Just some food for thought... If nothing else it might make you think of something relevant to you.
