Default Finally getting close to the new GTX cards coming out.

I'll be going for the 1070 when out but just got this on the 1080 so far, looks good but can't wait to get the specs on it. GTX 1080 Graphics Card | GeForce

Definitely curious on actual benchmark comparisons to the 9xx series cards. Makes me wonder if picking up this 970 was a bad idea .

^ In what regards? We haven't seen any game benchmarks yet. Pretty sure all we've seen in the leaked FireStrike benchmarks, and nVidia's "wattage vs game performance" graph which doesn't really say anything.

I'm getting 1070s to replace the Titans for a much lower wattage single 8pin solution until Pascal. What does that tell you
