Best Upgrade Path?

Innovation_

Hey guys, Im currently using a Strix 970 but I am planning on upgrading soon. Problem is that Im upgrading to 21:9 4k (LG 35UM95C to be exact), so what would be the best upgrade path for me? I would like to stay with team green, but I understand if team red is better. Im mostly playing games like Fallout, GTAV, and the occasional League.

  1. Get another 970?
  2. 980ti or 390x?
  3. Titan X?

Thanks!

980 Ti 

That way you can drop another 980 Ti instead of getting another 970 and then a 980TI and another 980Ti

Sell the 970 and grab a 980Ti, I reckon that's the best option. Two 970's could work but it's the lack of VRAM. So 980Ti.

Get two 980Ti's and don't look back.

The 980 and the 390x are about equal, however the 980 usually edges it out, but the 390x catches up at higher resolutions. If you can afford the 980ti just get that.
