    Looking to upgrade my 980 to one of these bad boys. They both seem like great cards I just wanted some feedback/opinions on if there is a major difference between the two that I'm missing or if it just comes down to preference. Also open to any suggestions of cards that are better in your opinion. Thanks!

    I did upgrade from 980 to 1070. Wasn't happy about it, maybe because my 980 was overclocking like a boss to almost 980ti stock performance (Firestrike graphic score of 16560), was much happier with a 1080.
    So 1080 is your good upgrade.
    I vote MSI.

    Maybe one of them comes OCed out of the box. gl

    The MSI one will be quieter. At least that's how it was when I compared my MSI 1080 Gaming X and my current ASUS 1080 Strix. My Asus was faster though (OC version) but MSI also has a Gaming Z version which is pretty fast.

    I'd agree with the above, a 1080 is a better upgrade from 980.

    A 1070 is basically (performancewise) a factory oc'ed 980 Ti meaning you're looking at an around 20-30 % performance increase only.

    Try to save up for a 1080 or wait a bit longer for AMD Vega. Also 1080 Ti is just around the corner which could drop 1080 prices a bit.

    If you really want to stick to getting a 1070, as I had both cards (the MSI first, performances were fine but there were artifacts due to micron memory issues, it was before the whole vBIOS release to fix it, so I returned it), I'd say go for the Strix if budget isn't an issue.

    From what I tested, the Strix is a bit cooler, noise is a non-issue in both cases, and performances were a tiny bit better on the Strix (although take into consideration that I picked the factory OC'd one, so I might be wrong).


    They are pretty even in the end, both are very good cards, take what's cheapest and according to which brand you like more.
