Questions and Answers

  • Question: Alright, so with my GTX 970 not quite being able to max most games at 1440p 60+ FPS, I've been looking to upgrade my GPU. It's mostly a birthday gift from the wife, and she has "permitted" me to buy a GTX 1080. Well, I'm not rich, so ~0 is very expensive for me, but I can buy it. However, after looking at the GTX 980 ti prices on NewEgg, I can get on of those for ~0 and save ~0.

    I want to max everything including using DX12 (minus AA, who needs it at 1440p!?) I play everything from The Witcher 3, to World of Warcraft 25 man raids, to Ark Survival Evolved and everything in between, at of course 2560x1440. Will the GTX 980 ti do this with 60+ FPS? Now that the GTX 1080 benchmarks have been rolling in for a good month or two, can the 980TI be OC'd to 1080 stock performance? Or maybe instead go with a 1070 and OC? Or should I just leap into the 1080?

    Also curious if my i5 4690K at 4.4 (on water) will be a bottleneck to either card (I intend to do a bit more OC on it today, cool at ~45C now so I figure I have some more room).

    Answer: The GTX 980Ti should play most things at 1440p and maintain 60+ fps but it won't last as long as the GTX 1080 will and the GTX 1080 is likely to hold its price longer for when you sell on EBAY when you get your next upgrade.

  • Question: Since the benchmarks are out now for the 1080 I was wondering which would be better for me, I'm a big VR guy and i plan on getting the oculus, but which setup would be better for VR, the sli setup would be good because the prices will come down in like a month or 2 after its released and it will be good because each graphics card can take on an eye of the VR experience. On the other hand there's simultaneous multi projection which will make the 1080 crunch up any VR game. But at a 600-700 premium. So what should I do guys? Also are there any benchmarks out there putting these 2 setups head to head? So which one would be best for me? Any advice would help :P

    Answer: the 1080 has a HUGE advantage in vr and sli isnt even always used in vr. the numbers nvidia were braging about were vr tests. i would keep the 980ti till a good 1080 comes out then get that

  • Question: Yup another one.
    Q: I'm Canadian,so the prices for me are...
    980 TI: 2
    1080: 7
    Prices are CDN (CAD), with tax and shipping included, the 1080 is using the converted 9usd price of when the non-FE are stocked.

    1440p monitor so going to be only be gaming in 2K.

    Is the ~5 extra worth getting the 1080 over the 980ti?
    I don't understand why benches dont include 1440p results, they go from 1080p straight to 4K, 4K is not game-able on single card setups, even the 1080 cant do solid 60s at 4K.
    If 980 ti, can anyone recommend a good brand, didnt realize there were so many.
    Also heard the Zotac AMP 980ti has artifacting issues?

    Sorry if this is the millionth Vs. you've read this week.

    Answer: If you want 1440p 60Hz then 980ti is more than enough. f you want 1440p 144Hz then 980ti is still good but better yet 1080.

    I have the 980ti and play my 1440p monitor at 120Hz, in BF4 I get a solid 90fps. For me, thats enough. However, if I didn't already own the 980ti I would get the 1080. It would push BF4 over 100fps and with the new BF coming out soon I would need an even better GPU (I assume).

    There are tons of benchmarks with the 980ti vs 1080 on youtube. There shouldn't be much for 1080p cuz who would be stupid enough to buy a 1080 for 1080p gaming?

    Zotac isn't common in North America but it is popular worldwide. As long as their warranty is good, go ahead and get the Zotac.

  • Question: Currently have an MSI GTX 980 Ti 6G. I can go SLI with another 980 Ti for 400-450 bucks or I can wait for the price of the 1080 to go down and get one. Which should I do?

    Answer: You Already have a 980 Ti, Probably like you said can get another 980 Ti for 400-450$ heck maybe even a used one for cheaper if you are welling to look around im seeing around the 370-390$ range. I would advise to just get another 980 Ti since you already have one :) think about it:

    you can either Sell yor 980 Ti add up on it and get a 1080 Which is pretty nice OR buy another 980 Ti (which will probably be around the same price after selling your existing 980 ti and adding up more money to get a 1080) for extra performance :) !

    that is only my opinion though :P

  • Question: So i ordered an ASUS STRIX gtx 1080 for 0 (0 after rebate) from amazon a couple days ago, but it is out of stock so it wont ship for probably at least a couple of weeks.

    I found a used EVGA 980 ti superclocked on craigslist for 0 obo, but i can probably get it for 0. He stated that he used it in SLI configuration and it was almost never above 50% load.

    I was wondering which would be the better deal in the long run. I would like to eventually get a vive or oculus rift, and I also would like the card to last at an absolute minimum of 2 years, preferably 3-4. I have a 1080p monitor right now, but i might upgrade to a 4k in the future.

    I understand that the one on craigslist is in fact used and does not have a warranty, and the 1080 will have a warranty. Based off this info, what sounds like a better deal for me?

    Answer: The 980ti came out in June of 2015, so that used card is potentially 2 years old today. Happy birthday.. What the owner hasn't told you is usage. It might have not seen 50% use, but how often was it used. With an sli setup it's doubtful the owner was a part-time gamer, so it's probably a safe assumption to see several hours a day, 7 days a week for 2 years. And how much OC did it run with? This card probably didn't see easy highway milage, it saw heavy off-road milage, punished hard, no matter what owner claims. So how much is left on it before it goes bunk? Impossible to say. And there's no warranty. No recourse if it dies next week.
    Stick with the 1080, you'll pay extra, but the benefits are covered.
