Default Upgrade: 1070 or 1080?

Hi all,

In a previous thread, I identified that I had to increase my RAM to 16 Gb and change my graphic card.

RAM increase is now done and my current config is:
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 4670K OC@4.3 Ghz
  • Processor Cores: 4
  • Processor Speed: 3.4 Ghz
  • RAM: 16 Gb DDR3
  • Video Board Manufacturer :NVIDIA
  • Video Board Model: GeForce GTX 770
  • Video Memory: 2 Gb
  • Mother Board: MSI Z87-G43 Gaming
  • Cooler: Master Hyper 212 EVO
  • Hard Drives: SATA 3 (2 Tb) + SSD (256 Gb)
  • Power: Antec HCG 620 Watts 80+ Bronze
Next month I plan to buy a 2560 x 1440, TN, 144 Hz GSync, 27" monitor.

I now need to make a decision regarding the graphic card. I have made this short list:
  • MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G: 599,90€ on Amazon.fr
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080: 599,90€ on Nvidia store
  • MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming 8G: 475,87€ on Amazon.fr
  • MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Aero OC - 8 Go: 439,90€ on Materiel.net
  • Nvidia GTX 1070:429,00€ on Nvidia store
This is my first and last upgrade on this PC. I want to last 3-4 years and the next time I will buy a new PC.

Advices are most welcome but please don't tell me to buy a 1080Ti (not on budget).

I am wondering if my motherboard and cpu will be able to follow?

Even if they cannot follow 100%, the graphic card will work anyway?

If it happens that Nvidia releases a 1070Ti Apparently it is taking shape if Gygabyte hints to it.

If you have the money, no hesitation, get the GTX 1080.
Any 1080 (full size card) is better than a 1070 or 1070Ti because the Corvette is better than the Camaro...

If this is a long term upgrade as you say then your only consideration is budget. If budget allows go for 1080, if not then 1070 is your only choice (not bad choice at all). Other then budget I don't see any other consideration that might find 1070 as better fit.

1080 fanboys don't exist. You can find Nvidia fans, DCS fans or Corvette fans...

invest a little more into your GPU if you're going to buy a 2k monitor. I had a 1070 and I upgraded to a 1080TI so a 1080 would be a good fit.
