    I just find my self periodically(once or twice weekly) checking for a GTX 1080.

    Must not get one. But if I find one for a good price I don't think I will resist.

    This comment is mostly for my self so I can get it out of my system.

    Must wait for bigger Pascal.

    Will be curious about your experience with it, getting rid of SLI and all :)
    Still not sure if I should get rid of mine and grab a 1080, or wait for a TI, or even wait longer for Volta or Vega...

    You can always wait for a bigger Pascal while rocking a 1080. :giggle2:

    That's what I'm doing. I doubt the 1080 prices are going to shift much, especially if the August Titan P frametime is true. I'll just sell my 1080 and get a Ti when it comes out.

    Someone better put out a 144hz 4K by then too, with HDR.

    Me too, but I would settle for a monitor with a proper 1440p 144Hz IPS g-sync panel as well... can't believe I'm still on my U2711. :p

    Prices won't shift much until AMD puts out a direct competitor to 1070/1080, but we will lose a bit from the premium we paid for having the cards bought so early, with **** availability and all.

    That's exactly what I'm thinking too.

    But I think it would be better to avoid the trouble and that loss on the price when I would sell it and go straight to the big one.

    I would love play with the new card and to benchmark/compare it to my current 980Ti.

    Maybe I should better ask to borrow one just to satisfy the urge. :D

    Don't wanna sound like a broken record or "look at me, I wanna buy a GTX 1080 but blah blah", its just something that's been "bugging" me. :p

    True but you will have a way bigger loss on sell price with the 980Ti by then, there's no straight good / straight bad path I'm afraid. :p

    One quick question... Is my pc good enough to keep up with a gtx 1080?
    Will I get better performance in gaming if I upgrade to say a z170 motherboard, ddr4 and a 6700K?

    If I were you I wouldn't think for a second to downgrade from a 4.2GHz 6 core. Sure the performance per core from a 6700K is quite a bit better, but imo the platform is overpriced for what it offers.

    Rather get Broadwell-E, or even better wait for Skylake-E. What you have now will last you easily till that comes out.

    with 1080 he'll get a better experience @ 4k like DOOM can easily run 4k/60fps @ ultra graphics on one 1080

    the division can run 4k/57fps @ ultra settings if AA is off and shadows to medium or anything other than PCSS/HTFS ( tested that myself )

    Tomb Raider 2016 same thing , 4k/55fps minimum if AA is FXAA and HBAO+ is off


    my answer was general not specific to his 1st question

    i guess i rushed that answer :nerd:


    but he will get a better performance with a faster and cooler CPU under stress + an up to date mobo with DDR4 memory than whatever he's got

    I agree too. Kaby-X or Sky-X would be better upgrades and not that far from now. Hold on a bit longer imo.

    Okay. Thanks for the input. Itching to do a new build, but maybe I'll manage to wait a bit longer:)

    BTW, gaming at 3440x1440

    After several delays i have now pulled my order on my 1080.. my 970's will have to do the job until the ti arrives..
    I guess they did not see the demand for these cards comming, so they manufactured to few.

    I am looking to buy it somewhere in the US :( It is all sold everywhere!
    If it keeps that way i may need to buy the 1070 instead even though i want the 1080 ;[

    I'm gaming at 4K with the setup in my sig... and I'm very happy with it so far. I haven't seen any need for a CPU upgrade (for gaming esp) yet and I'm on the little sibling of your CPU. I wouldn't worry about it just yet unless you have $ to burn for a small benchmark boost. :nerd:
