Do you think nVidia will drop support for the 980 ti soon or should I get the GTX 1080? I am playing at 1080p@144hz on Ultra.
I'm using a 980 right now and I play 1440p@144hz on Ultra on pretty much every game I've played so far and it works great! Although if you're going to get a 980 ti, may as well get a non ref 1070 (but then again, most of them probably breach the 400+ dollars price bracket). Personally I'm gonna wait until the 1080ti to see what my options are before upgrading, and I may not even upgrade then.
To specifically answer your question though, 980ti for 1080p @ 144hz on Ultra is a more preferable path to go on. simply because the 980ti deals are too good right now.
I'd get one for $360, is that a good deal?
$60 less than a new 1070... I would try get one for $340 and get it for that if you can.
or see if they can do $350
Nvidia will be supporting the Titan x, 980ti, and 980 for at least 5 years. They only just stopped supporting the 7800 and 8800 series cards.
Well, I mean look at cards like the 780 ti that don't perform all that well.
I dunno,I just tested, benched, and sold a pair of Asus matrix platinum 780ti cards in 4690k system. Was either just behind a 970 or a tad faster depending on the game. Firestrike was decent too. Single card pulling high 11k and sli pulling high 15k. That's not terrible for a card released in 2013. And the 980ti was... Is... A far more popular card than the 780ti. The whole platform has been far more popular.
Get a 1070
