It depends. If you got the extra cash, wait for Pascal. But honestly, this card is pretty damn good already, for a pretty nice price. Not sure what the price point of the Pascal's will be, but i'm assuming at least $800 minimum.

Im planning for the price drop on this when pascal comes out, there's no point since after it will be around this price point correct? And would running 2 of these sli match one pascal card?

At this price point I wouldn't wait for Pascal if you're really looking to upgrade, this card should handle any game you throw at it @ 1440p for the next 2+ years.

Just keep in mind these cards tend to get phased out, not price dropped into oblivion. There will be an initial price drop but I don't see these dropping to extremely low prices. I expect them to phase out and disappear except on eBay etc. Great card though, I have one in my primary computer.

If history is any indicator, the GTX 1080 will be only slightly faster in games than the 980ti and cost $550 at launch. That means this card will be a good buy and still be one of the best on the market unless you buy the new titan when it comes out at $1000 later in the year. People are freaking out about pascal like it's the second coming, but I don't think it will blow away current cards.

The version of the xtreme above is the lower clocked version of the xtreme. While it may be possible to overclock the card very high. According to several forums these are the lower binned GPUs that didnt make the cut for the regular xtreme GPU. Check out the base clock and turbo clock speed difference of this card.

As far as waiting for pascal there really is no point. You will not be memory limited in any game with this card. Recent news puts the 1080 right in line with the TI which is to be expected. The card that will replace this is the 1080TI which will not launch until 1st quarter 2017 at best. If you need a new card there is no point in waiting.

Bingo, pretty much nailed the important points of waiting/debating.

But the 1080 will boast 8GB of memory vs 980 Ti's 6GB. Likely better for the 4K gamers.

EDIT: I stand corrected. From my quick research, there is essentially no difference between the performance of the GTX 980 Ti 6GB and the Titan X 12GB, even at the very highest resolutions tested. Looks like 6GB is sufficient for 4K gaming.

As a former SLI 970 owner, and now 980ti owner, I can say this is not (entirely) true. I probably have high expectations, and 1440p has me torn about my gaming experience. I want to play at this resolution at ultra/max settings but I'm often forced to reduced settings to high (and some settings medium) to maintain 60fps. As far back as Crysis 3, and GTA5, and now The Division, a 980ti is not enough for ultra 1440p. I dropped SLI because of hit/miss support by games, and hoped the 980ti would get me by - but it doesn't. I wish I had never moved from 1080p, because current GPUs can easily crush it. But the PPI density on 1440 is just too noticeable vs 1080, and I can't unsee what has now been seen. I'm considering a g-sync monitor to see if it smooths things out where constant 60fps is not possible.

2 years from now the AAA titles will likely severely tax this card and force even lower settings.

On topic, this is a great deal for a 980ti. Just don't expect to play the included game (The Division) on max settings at 1440p (though I do love the game and have been enjoying it at 45-60 fps with mixed settings on a 980ti).

Tbh I don't think 980ti will drop more. Maximum it will likely to hit around $520-$550 but will come with rebate so you will pay upfront around $600. 980ti itself is a damn good beast.

My gtx 980ti runs around 90fps on max setting at 1080p. So I would think like you post. Sli won't handle The Division at 1440p max setting with 90fps.

Same as my R9 390. Can play The Division at 1440p with exact framerate as your 980ti. Was expecting much better coming from my 7850 2GB. Oh well, I figure it has to do with optimization for PC from developers but may be wrong.

Some things I say to myself when I see these deals:
The card is more than 1 year old
Typically next generation X70 card is close in performance to top tier previous gen at lunch price of $330-350 ($200 cheaper)
New generation is 16nm, whole new tech

At the same time, the way things are going, nothing stops nvidia from pricing new GPUs in $350-700 range, since there's not a whole lot of competition from AMD. Look at current generation, 9XX cards haven't dropped in price much in 18 months on market. I will hold out a bit longer I think.
