Hey folks. Been a while since I was on. As in, last time I had a Geforce 6600GT and Athlon XP 3000+ . (The specs on the left should be up-to-date now) Anyway, I got a new monitor recently. The ROG Swift 1440p, 144Hz monitor. It's the TN model, not the IPS, but I got it for something like $400 so I'm certainly not complaining. My brother needs a new card (OK, he needs "A" card), so I am selling him my 970 for $200. So I am here trying to decide between the GTX 1080 and 1070. I have G-Sync, so I'm going to be sticking with NVIDIA for a while. I definitely overclock. I almost always try to flash an overclock with custom fan settings and a huge bump in power target. My 970 STRIX is currently set so its base TDP is about 150% of stock. This gets me to 1500MHz and 8GHz, which gets it running about like a stock 980. So I could definitely use the extra power plugs if possible. I don't need any kind of 144Hz frame lock in new games, but I do want something future-proof. I now and again see the 1070 STRIX model available, so I am considering that, but I'm also considering waiting on the 1080 STRIX model if they could EVER RESTOCK THESE DANG 1080 CARDS. Any recommendations on which one I could get? Would the 1070 be worth it, or should I just go ahead and jump up to the 1080? I'm an engineer with basically no major bills except student loans, so I can pay for either in about half a week, though I might need convincing to spend in the $600's on a card. As far as games? - Modded minecraft 90% of the time (SEUS 10.2) - Modded Skyrim (custom ENB) - Unreal Tournament (new alpha) - Crysis series - Mostly prepping for Mass Effect: Andromeda - Replay all kinds of older games.
