    Performance-wise I'm not going to see the difference between the two. My tv maxes out at 60hz and my 1070 just got me under the 60fps constant mark in a few games I tried. The 1080 will get me to glorious 60.

    If by some miracle I get the PG27UQ monitor (4K+HDR+144hz+GSync) even the ti is going to struggle to max out that monitor's capabilities.

    I most probably will be getting a 1440p (maybe even the ultra-wide PG348Q) monitor if I can't get the 4k one. 1440p is much more feasible to maintain a high fps than trying to do it at 4k. And the 1080 should be more than sufficient.

    Also, I'm keen to see what Volta holds.

    That 4k monitor will be sweet for my consoles though.
    Honestly at 1440 you might as well stick to 1070. My 980ti is the same as a 1070 and it absolutely murders 1440.

    I have the philosophy of if you gonna do it, do it properly but obviously its your call.

    I am on a 980ti and at 1080p 144 fps it is perfect for me.

    My tower is the opposite. Flashy AF. My 1080 comes today and replaces my 1070. Sad to see her go in less than a month but I need a little more frames at 4k.
    I'm using a 60" 4k 60Hz Samsung TV (KS8000) as my monitor:


    The 1080Ti seems to be able to hit 60fps more consistently which is why I waited for it over the 1080.

    Nothing wrong with a flashy tower if that is what you like. It is all personal preference.
    To each their own. You are spending a lot of time and money on this thing. Best be to your liking I say!

    Oh I forgot to mention the aesthetic aspect. I wanted a big @$$ white card. LOL.

    And if I get the Ultra Wide, the 1080 will maintain a more consistent high fps for the extra real estate.
