980 or 980ti?

Fluffinator

So currently I have a 980, but I'm planning on getting a 144hz 1440p monitor, would a 980 get my pretty consistant 144 frames and max settings on most games or should I look into a 980ti? I primarily play CSGO and also wanna make sure I get constant 300fps.

Unless you're planning on selling the 980, don't get a 980 Ti.

I plan on selling the 980 and using extra cash for a 980 ti if I were to do so.

If that's the case, I would do that.

A 980 will not always be able to push 1440p 144hz at max but it would provide a good experience. If you can afford a 980ti I'd get one.

Yeah that's what I was thinking would probably be the case. Thanks

980's fine.  And when you need more power, you could just add another 980 and SLI them - would still blow away a 980ti.

980 ti is roughly 15-20% more powerful - not a game changer unless you're down in the 45-60 fps range.

Well, I was thinking the added Vram may help.

On topic: get a 980ti

 

Off topic: Why do CS players always try to get WAY more FPS than their monitors can actually display?

If you get a consistant 300fps it feels a lot better then getting a constant 144fps for some reason it's really strange and I can't put my finger on it, maybe because it already has double the amount of frames theres practically no delay as opposed to getting exactly the anount of frames the monitor can support, really not sure but to me it feels better.

if you want better frames get a 980ti

my advice would be to get a 980ti as the 980 wont handle 1440p 144hz to well.. the 980ti would be better but still not perfect

but for cs go only just keep the 980

Might reduce the frame time variance, other than that, wouldn't be any point.

That power supply is really iffy.

Get an EVGA G2/GS/B2 PSU.

Yeah I needed a new power supply really really quick and just ran to my local best buy without really looking at reviews, now I know.

What? The 980ti is SIGNIFICANTLY faster than the 980. Did you forget that it's a cut down Titan X, not a beefed up 980?

A 980 Ti is practically a 780 Ti on SLI without the drawbacks of being on SLI.

On-topic: I say if OP really wants to get a better experience in 1440p gaming today, a 980 Ti would serve you well.
