Well since the miners are starting to calm down, and the 10xx series has rebuild some of its stock, we got the new 11xxx cards coming out this fall. Any takers on it? Word is they are only about 20% better at best, and supporting the new DDR Ram. Some senior folks said its not a huge jump to spend another 500+ for a card that the previous generation has yet to be maxed out on current software. Even at 4k you can get 60fps and decent VR without issues.

There’s enough of a jump to the 1080 ti that I will wait for a while.

We'll see. I wouldn't go 4K even with a 1080 Ti for gaming. I was looking more at 3440x1440 which you can get pretty decent FPS with a 1080 Ti on most titles without dialing back the settings too much. Still haven't had the itch for VR. Most of the cool stuff on VR honestly isn't really hardware demanding as it's more proof of concept than a full AAA game. The stuff like Fallout VR or Skyrim VR, whatever. I can do without that. Honestly haven't really looked at Skyrim VR. Played a bit of Fallout VR. When we actually get a real AAA title designed for VR that I want to play that has that kind of replayability, I'll be all over it. Fallout VR would be great aside from that it's just painfully obvious it's a shoehorned flatscreen experience into a VR system. I'll definitely need to upgrade the old 970 as even on a 1080 you get a lot of tearing. Skyrim apparently is a bit easier on the old system resources.

Supposedly the 1170 has similar performance to the 1080 Ti. Assuming it comes in at around $500 versus the $700 for the 1080 Ti it makes it a bit more accessible. Of course, that's MSRP. Unfortunately, the 1170 also has a very low TDP so if miners are driving the prices on the 1080 TI to $769 if you don't mind waiting 2-3 weeks or more like $900 if you do on 3+ year-old hardware not much hope for what the price will wind up being if it does hit a sub 150 TDP with similar performance to a ~250 watt TDP 1080 Ti.

Looks more like a "tick" rather than a "tock."

I've seen plenty of 1080 TIs for well over $1,000 before the very recent pullback. I'm still on a 960 I bought three or four years ago for $200. It's completely maxed out in WoW. I have a 4K monitor. I have a 3770k @ 4.6 GHz from early 2013 with a Samsung 850 Pro.

My initial CPU fan was starting to fail. I have a replacement in for that. I have a couple of connectors on the PSU that no longer work. I accidentally tore the cable from the front USB ports to the motherboard around a year ago.

A new case, PSU, and a graphics board, along with fan change outs, could conceivably keep this system going for another several years.

Agree with it being a 'tick'. Still say the 1070 is where it's at for price to perf ratio.

Yea i love my 1070 now. Its playing all my AAA games at maxed out, but im running full HD not 4k. Waiting on the prices to drop a little bit more on the monitors. I am running 4th gen Intel on a MSI board. Never have any bottlenecks other then not getting the full benifits of having a 1070. Even still, a good card and should last anybody another 2-3 years when they actually start benefiting the extra 4 gig of ram on these things. I cant find a game that maxes it out completely?

You're at 1080P. That's kind of overkill for that.

I have a 960 in my system. It plays WoW at 4K fine. Given where the cost of graphics cards have been lately, I've bought an XBox One X awhile back. It does far better than the 960 and is economical for what it is.

I only care about VR. I'll be getting an 1185. I'm expecting the price to be shocking.

Toss up. The 1080 Ti is a beast. Worth $769 and the two to three week wait, to me I'd say yes over the $500 for a 1070. At the more typical near $1,000 price less so. If you just want 1080p 60hz, the 1070 is really all you need. If you want 120 hz on high settings, 1440p, or VR moving up to the 1080/1080 Ti makes more sense. Price/performance on the 1080/Ti is surprisingly good. It's just a question of whether or not that extra performance really matters. At 1080p/60 it really doesn't. Meanwhile I'm clunking along just fine with my 970.

The old 1060 3GB for $230 is more my idea of price/performance champ. The 3GB and fewer CUDAs isn't so hot, but it's basically 90% of a full 1060 for 75% of the price. I can get behind that. If the full 1060 sold for closer to MSRP, it would be much less interesting.
