Gigabye 1070ti windforce?


Are these cards worth it? currenlty only a couple left at £370 (UK based), which is roughly a 15% discount from usual price, they have triple fans. My rig is for gaming, streaming, video editing, motion graphics/animation, light 3d work, coding.


Are these cards worth picking up for my intended usage at their current price? or should I wait for winter holiday sales?

My intended usage -


My main uses for my system are as follows -

streaming at 1080p/60fps

Video editing for 1080p/60fps and 4k - these are mostly non gaming videos

2d motion graphics - think Adobe Animate and Adobe After Effects, to incorporate into videos

3d modelling/animation - via Blender

regular image editing - a dozen or so 1080p or 4k images a day

web development


videos/motion graphics/3D work -

Adobe Suite - in particular

- Premier Pro

- Animate

- Illustrator

- Photoshop 

- After Effects

Davinci Resolve



for gaming whilst streaming at 1080p 60fps -

- some FPS/3rdPS such as Battlefield 5, Fortnite

- a lot of beat em ups, such as SF5, T7, SC6. also Monster Hunter Online

- some 2d axis games, e.g. hack and slash, MOBA, totalwar or EU series games

- whatever is coming out in the next few years, e.g. Cyberpunk 2077.

- indie titles

- would like to be able to play games coming within 1-3 years from now at max or high settings at above 60fps 1080p

- but most of the games i play are likely not to be gfx intensive, it would be a minority of the games (from this year only BF5, otherwise it was fortnite, moba's and strategy).
