I can upgrade but I don't want to redo my water cooling and I don't need the extra performance yet.

For a lot of people it's not just performance... It's power efficiency. I can't wait to see how much power these cards draw and what performance they give per watt compared to older cards... I may very well go from a 750Ti on my personal machine to a 1070.

160-170W on 1080 like the 980. Both cards have a single 8pin.

Thinking it's about time I replaced my venerable GTX 680 with a 1070

So I haven't followed GPU architecture in ages, but I thought 10 series IS pascal? o.O unless I'm misreading your comment

That was supposed to say big Pascal. I posted that at like 6am or something. In other words selling one card to get 2 cards that suck half the wattage for the same or more power. It reduces my custom cable cost and reduces heat in my room. The games I'm playing right now don't require much more than that.

Considering how inexpensive they are in relation to the Titan and its performance, that would be a poor transaction for you!
