    If I were to find a GTX 980Ti selling for (somewhat) less than a GTX 1070, I'd still go with the 1070 because it comes with (a) a newer architecture (performance difference could increase with time), (b) less power draw, and (c) more VRAM.

    Actually, there's no use selling a 980Ti anywhere near the price of a new 1070, for that matter. Unless one feels nostalgic.

    Wait for the 1080 ti and then sell this one for $300 to defray the cost.

    This.

    No point in getting rid of 980Ti for 1070/1080 really, gain for 1080 is minimal, no gain for 1070. (Based on OC 980ti)

    Define "minimal".

    I'm going to do it since I want a cooler and quieter card. Also the 1080 is not supposed to replace the 1080 per se, the 1080Ti is and it will most likely be even faster. Personally, I'll get both.

    Minimal meaning ~10FPS compared to 1080. (This is compared to a OC 1080! - OC 980ti at your clocks)

    1080Ti will be more worth the outlay (hopefully).

    1070 you won't get "faster"

    2months ago you could have sell it for around 600$. Now i feel like the best thing to do is wait next generation, or 1080-Ti.

    1070 equals retail 980-Ti +1/2%, and don't get fooled by 8Go Ram, you don't need it at 1440p, actually you only need it for higher than 1440p which a single 1070 will not handle that well anyway.

    Now, with proper cooling an overclocked 980-Ti is 2/3% below 1080retail if not on par, and i'm not sure a 1070 can overclock to that level of performance.

    Again, you can check Ashes of the Singularity, Firestrike,.. whatever. Overclocked 980-Ti and 1080 are around the same:

    True but some games give a 20fps increase at 1440p. On average an OCd 1080 is 18% faster than an OCd 980Ti if I recall correctly.

    I have no plans to buy a 1070 since it's almost the same card as 980Ti (I'm not stupid :) )

    Sure but I'm not in your or Koniakkis boat. My card runs stable in all games at 1450 and I'm tired of changing fans and trying different setups and I won't ramp up my fans to 90% just to maybe game at 1500Mhz. What I do value is silence and speed. Two things hard to combine but Pascal does run at ~70 degrees at lower fan speed (from what I gather by reading tests) and does offer some performanceboost.

    I totally agree that 1080Ti is the real upgrade here but it's still at least 9+ months away. Games won't be less demanding by then ;)

    If you have the money to make minor upgrades like that then go for it, but I think to most people upgrading before the Ti doesn't make much sense.

    Wow man, awesome deal. That's a lot higher value than an RX 480 even, which is already a sweet deal.

    Wasn't ebay, just a dutch used hardware website. The only thing is that one of the fans didn't work. So i installed an Kraken G10 on it from my old 780 ti that i sold btw for 250 euro and now i have a nice cooled card. Very happy with it.

    Decided to test how stable my OC is with temp just for fun, so I toned it down slightly and I ran 1450/7500 @ 50% fan; 2100 RPM.

    Max reported temp after 3 rounds of AotS bench crazy 1440p is 78c ;) notbad.exe

    edit:

    around 90 minutes of witchering, max settings 1440p, hairworks on at max.

    1468/7500 @ 60% fan

    The new settings they added; namely Ultra for some settings, and all new temporal AA are totally bugged.

    Temporal AA works.

    The other settings which now have an Ultra option do not. When I set them to ultra and restart the game, I find them on high again.

    Some preliminary testing

    Edit: Apologies for the lack of spoiler, the edit didn't go through.

    Here is 1440p CRAZY preset; score is exactly the same as before, no change whatsoever.
    [​IMG]

    Temporal AA makes performance tank very significantly as you can see comparing to the above scren****

    These are the settings I cannot get to stick (ULTRA ones)

    Thought it was about time to mess around with 3dMark a little, and try the new stress test feature out.

    Stress test feature shows around 99% pass rate - also ran a Ultra Firestrike test to see how I compare to 1080's in SLi:

    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/12521433

    Pretty much the same as stock 1080's so, count me pleased.
