1070 (Ti) vs 1080

Should I buy a 1070 (TI) some gaming edition or a 1080 FTW fro my other build. I am planning on PUBG Medium/High, Fortnite Max, CS:GO Max. I wanna have somewhat power for the future. Obviously the answer would be 1080 but I am still looking for great deals so bangs-for-bucks are also valuable (I don't need a 1080 but if it's not a bad value compared to the 1070 (Ti) then why not, as I mentioned, this is for a longer time).

You can overclock a 1070 ti to 1080 performance, but if you can also overclock the 1080 so it's kinda moot to mention.  So really it's gonna be the cheapest solution you can find.  I would encourage finding the best cooler you can or maybe a hybrid solution when considering between cards.  It doesn't only help with overclocking, but also at stock.  The better cooling will allow the card to reach and maintain higher speeds.   Last I looked the difference between an EVGA 1070 ti and 1080 was $50.  And if you wanna buy used then get yourself a 1080 ti for the price of new, lesser cards.

With a good overclock, specially memory overclock, the 1070 Ti can get about 95%+ of the 1080's OC performance, so it all depends on the price, the difference is very slim. And unless you're playing at 1440p@144Hz+, this is pretty overkill for these games.

If you don’t need a 1080 why would you get a 1070ti?

 

better get the best card you can for pubg, even at 1080p high settings still taxes the card enough to not have great gameplay.

1080 is about 25% faster than 1070 and and 5-10% faster than 1070ti. Honestly it looks like you're an esports player rather than a AAA player. Assuming you're playing at 1080p or even 1440p a 1060 6gb should be more than fine for what you're trying to do.
