1070 Ti worth it?

 Share

I'm about to commit into buying a GPU, right now the one im looking at is a Zotac 1070 Ti mini. Here's the thing, i live in Central America, were prices are way higher than in USA. Also, since this is a niche hobby, thers only one retailer that its worth a look, that limits my options on chosing a GPU. 

 

For example, that 1070 Ti is priced at $480 and thers only 3 left in stock. All 1080 are out of stock (permanently) and the next step up is a MSI 2070 Gaming at $700, thats way over budget. 

The thing is, do i wait for the lower end 2070s of go ahead and buy the Zotac 1070 Ti mini?

 

Note: Also, that mini is the only 1070 Ti thats left. And the store will no longer import more 10 series.

just get the 1070ti mini. I don't like this card and it's no good for overclocking, but I don't think you can get a 2070 at all near 500 dollars this year. Or even the first quarter of next year.

1070 Ti is almost as powerful as a 1080... especially if you overclock. 

The other thing is, if you don't mind used, the Classifieds on this forum occasionally have GPUs, as will /r/hardwareswap. 

You can get them used for around $240-260 iirc.

Fine you want the PSU tier list? Have the PSU tier list: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1116640-psu-tier-list-40-rev-103/

I use the zotac's 1080 mini in my own system the 1070ti is just a lower tire of my card oc it a little and they work the same. 

I'd think twice about the 20 series cards due to some driver problems the 2080ti are having and dying on their users, I know so far 2070s have not been affected by the problems but I'd rather be cautious when it comes to spending money more then $250.

 

Unless you have a good freesync monitor I wouldn't recommend you a RX Vega 56 or 64 (extra lower usage) 

So go for the 1070Ti it's been Thru the ringer and proven it's a dog that won't disappoint you.

I think the price difference between the GTX 1070 Ti and the RTX 2070 only serve to emphasize the point that the former is a much better buy. In terms of sheer out of box gaming, the GTX 1070 Ti is great for gaming at 1080P and 1440P.......for 4K, it'll struggle unless you make ingame video tweaks. My GTX 1080 (slightly better than the GTX 1070 Ti) can manage 4K gaming, it's just that I'd have to lower some ingame settings to get better framerate, but visually, the games I play still look damn good......especially on my biga$$ TV.
