    Hi Guys,

    I just updated my signature because it was very old and I had a hard time fitting everything in there. I quit boozing a month ago and have decided to upgrade my computer. I was going to put some money in and upgrade everything and get a 1080ti but I think im going to just upgrade my GPU.

    I was thinking about upgrading to a 1070 ti but wanted to know if it would be worth it? Most the games I have won't need a new video card but I do want to play Quantum Break which I heard can be a bit taxing to a machine. If Left 4 Dead III ever comes out id like to play that too and possibly play games at medium to semi high settings.

    Also would my PSU have any issues running that GPU?

    EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti SC GAMING ACX 3.0 Black Edition, 8GB GDDR5

    Thanks guys!

    Totally thought I responded to this thread but I guess not. It should serve you well. :) PSU is enough to probably run 2 1070 TI's if you really wanted it to.

    How much did you pay for it? Currently says $470 which for that level of performance isn't bad. Nothing like what it was a few months ago. My 1080 was $580 back in September before the mining bubble and the 1070 TI is pretty darn close in performance. 1080's were over 1k for a while.
