The 1080ti is a dream for 1440p. I mean I probably would if you game alot.

Last gen I had sli 970s and traded for a 980ti and it was worth it cause sli sucks.

i have a 1080ti, and i don't game nearly as much as i should because of work :(

but it handles 1440p @ 144 hz with ease, every game is shreked by it

I have a regular 1080 and it chits on pretty much everything I throw at it so a ti would be awesome. im not sure on prices though. how much do the 1070s go for now? +500 extra. how much are u saving vs just buying new

My 1070 did fine with pretty everything at 1440p. I got a deal on a 1080 and sold my 1070 to a buddy and barely paid anything for it. I'd imagine a 1080 TI would be underutilized at 1440p

I'm selling my 1080 if you're interested srs, just don't use it enough to justify the price tag

I would do this, because I am doing this.

Short answer. Yes.
Long answer. I went from an EVGA 1070 FTW to an EVGA 1080TI FTW3. I believe the difference in the cards, performance wise, is around the 50% mark. I also have a 1440P 144hz gsync monitor and I wouldn't throw anything less than a 1080TI at it. If you're trying to play with all settings maxed in modern AAA games, or trying to make up for unoptimized early access / indie games... the extra horsepower comes in handy. It isn't the end-all-be all, and I still have to turn settings down a lot of the time to get to the 144FPS, or close mark, but it's the best we've got, for now.

Just put up my 1080ti up for sale for 900, seeing if some sucker will buy it. (bought it for 700 before the crypto chit started)

I thought they were skipping Volta and going straight to Ampere? Same premise of waiting for the next GPU gen to come out of course... But yeah I thought Volta was strictly going to be used in the Titan V (and maybe some Tesla/similar cards) for AI programming and other enterprise level applications. Ampere to my knowledge was going to be the next mainstream GPU lineup after the current gen Pascal cards.

ah yea, thats my bad. if volta is used for the ti series tho, i will flip my chit and buy that. either way, these new cards should put a good sized dent in the 4k market

Rocking a 1070 currently. Got a 4k 60hz monitor and a 1080p 144hz monitor, mostly use the latter due to performance reasons. I advise waiting for the next gen of GPUs, seems like it'll be coming out in June or July. Save some money for it, maybe consider selling your 1070 in like May or June to try and get the best price for it.
