1070 is better for roughly the same price, no?

people are upgrading to these newer cards and selling their older cards... check craigslist

Yesterday, I picked up my 2nd MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G for $180 with the box.

Based on benchmarks, they are about the same between 1070 and 980 Ti, so this is a good deal if you don't mind the power usage and the older architecture with lack of async support.

It's a solid card for the price. I would personally just rather buy a 1070 though.....

Can't find a 1070 for $360 at this time. Good deal if you are OK with rebates.

What the cheapest 1070 you can buy right now? $410? Seems like waiting for a 1060 under $250 is the best bang for the buck.

Well until 1070 drops to its msrp this deal is definitely better... as they have about the same performance and pascal is just maxwell 2.0 anyway. If you can wait for volta that would be better.

I can't wait that long. In fact, I need to upgrade sometime this year. Don't laugh, but I am using a Radeon 6970.

Best bang for the buck is generally the mid-range cards, and anything above is premium, the higher up you go.

So right now, best bang for your buck is RX 470 or GTX 1060.

Glad I could help, and there is no reason to laugh. Just think of it as saving money this entire time!

The 980 Ti is a beast of a card. It just draws huge amount of electricity, so if you use it over many years you might just want to go for 1070. Newer card, and less electricity cost over the years, which it sounds like you are using these for a while.

Think 150W or so vs close to 300W....

I had a 6950 unlocked to run like a 6970 for years! I loved that card. switched over to a 770 GTX and love those cards too. The 6950/6970 was the best bang for your buck for a LONG time mainly because of so much performance you get out of your dollar and that 2GB ram. I had a friend who gave up on using it because it doesn't not support opengal 4.5 for No Man's Sky.

The power consumption argument is beaten down to the ground and it's been proven that the savings is real real paltry in a yearly basis. it does not make a difference enough. But I also highly recommend the GTX 1070 mainly because it has some features for VR and the robust cooling and efficiency of the card. It runs a good 15 to 20 degrees cooler on load which is not just beneficial to keeping your room cooler, but also keeping the card more durable and lasting longer. You get an extra 2GB RAM, plus the drivers will just make the card mature over the long run compared to an already mature 980 Ti.

That is not entirely true. Even a conservative estimate of 70W extra at 3-hours day for a year at 20c/kWh, you are paying $15 extra annually. Over however, many years that might add up. Might as well go for the latest and greatest and save the power cost. Calculator:

I'm in CA, so less heat in my place is also welcome, because it causes the AC to kick in at a higher rate too, raising cost, but also makes it uncomfortable in the apartment and makes more noise.

Do you know what the last midrange card in the 1000 series will be, and when it will be released by any chance?

I'm on my first rig, and when I first thought about getting a computer in the fall of last year I wanted to get 4 Titan Z cards and run them in quad-SLI. When I seriously considered building the PC at the start of this summer, I decided I would want to go for something in the $200-$300 range, since that is much more reasonable for a budget PC. Now, I'm at the point where I'm trying to get a card for $200 or less, because I'm going to upgrade the card in two years anyway and would rather pay that amount rather than $250 or more every time I wanted to upgrade. So, that's why I'm holding out at the very least for the GTX 1050 to come out, or, if there's a desktop GTX 1040 released after that, I might get that instead. It makes more sense to save money, especially since in another four years, the $400+ cards of this generation will be significantly outperformed by cards at the $200 pricepoint.

Also, would you know if there's any major difference between standard GPUs and GPUs with additional fans and coolers? For instance, I don't know if it'd be smarter to purchase the GTX 1050 (assuming that's the lowest model the 1000 series will have) from EVGA for $149 (assuming that's MSRP), or the EVGA FTW ACX 3.0 GTX 1050 for some $50 more, for about $199. I'm making up the prices here, but do you think it's worth it to get the modified version of the card? If that is the case, I'm kind of leaning toward EVGA and their FTW ACX 3.0 series since I've heard good things about the company and their graphics cards.

Thanks in advance for the help.

The short answer is that the $199 price is the low-end mid-range if you may, and in that category you got 3x options. You are in luck, but you better hurry or wait a while.

Nvidia announced just today and is selling the GTX 1060 3GB card for $199, which is expected to be around 85-90% of the 1060 6GB for 20% less cost. Hurry over to newegg before it sells out, because cards right now tend to sell over MSRP and that should be a solid card:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...-_-Product

The other options are either an RX 470 and RX 480 4GB, but the latter is non-existent in the market. Personally, if I'm in the $200 range, it would be either 3GB 1060 or 6GB.

1050 or RX 460 will likely be significantly slower and not worth it in my opinion, if you plan to play on 1080p/60fps.

In terms of additional cooling, it usually comes with a little extra overclock as well. I usually buy them mostly for sound reasons, because a 1-fan can make a tad bit of noise on full load in-game as I have an open case. In terms of use, the 1-fans obviously works, and represents the best bang for the buck if you don't mind a little bit of noise (which varies by the manufacturer too), in the best bang for the buck category. eVGA has really good 1-fan cards from what I hear.

I'm like you in the sense that I'm in the best bang for my buck category, and don't want to buy the most expensive thing for best performance. Just 3-4 months ago a 1060 level performance was MSRP $550, and today it is $250, but I wouldn't go too low either, and anything a 1060 3GB or RX 470 4GB is too low in my opinion, but it depends on the games you are playing and at what resolution and frame rate you want to hit.
