Upgrade or not?

So I have a gtx 980ti and with boxing day coming around the corner I am wondering if it is worth getting a 2070. Little back story I am also doing a completely new pc build too which the end game is about 3k Canadian, this is a full build and all it is missing is a gpu. So it then goes back to the main question, I don't think it's a terrible idea to upgrade the gpu but I really don't want to spend 3.6k ish. Keep in mind to me the price is not the problem it's just is it too early to change gpu? Would appreciate the opinions :)

980 ti is a good card, 1070 ish performance (give or take). What's your performance target? You would be just fine with 1080p 144Hz on that GPU.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Personally I don't recommend people upgrade unless they have to reduce the settings below what they are happy with in order to play a game.  Make AMD/Nvidia earn the next sale.

Would be helpful if you listed what the rest of the build is. Kinda hard to make any suggestions without that.
Also, what do you use your PC for?

When you upgrade, are you planning on upgrading to an Intel or Ryzen based system?  Do you currently have a monitor with G Sync or Free Sync, or do you plan on buying a new monitor with your new build?

 

These things could seriously effect the amount of cash you have to put toward you GPU, and/or what GPU would be the best option for you.
