        It depends what you want to do with it.

        That card is good for 1440 gaming (and 4k with the settings down a bit)
        If you want 4k and everything in ultra, or a Vive/oculus then maybe. But only a 1080 or 1080Ti would offer any real world immprovement. A 1070Ti really isn't worth the extra cash from what you've got already.

          Nope, I have a 980 and play games at 4K on that. It's not worth upgrading until the next gen of cards are released or prices drop significantly tbh.

            Isn't that the clincher? It is hard to answer vague questions about bits of kit when you don't know what they'll be used for.

              Concur need to know intended use, resolution, games you want to play?

              1080ti is really the first decent 4k card for ultra graphics and decent FPS.

                1080ti I believe is about 30 - 40% faster than 980 ti. I'd wait for March/April 2018, grab 1180 GTX or 1180 GTX TI both will be using GDDR6. 1180 GTX TI will be about 30% faster than 1080 GTX TI, so from 980 ti to 1180 GTX ti looking at 60 to 70% improvement in fps.
