went from a 1070 to 1080 to 1080ti then later 1080ti sli.

If you are sticking with 1080p 1070 is more than enough.

For 1440p 1080ti is running games at same or higher fps than 1070 was for me at 1080p. 1070 sort of struggles with 1440p at higher settings and gets similar fps to 1080ti running 4k w/ AA turned off for reference.

I say go for the 1080ti if you want a card that will last you until volta Ti (so maybe 1 year from now).

Thanks for your input. I may jump into PUBG eventually, but have a backlog of games to go through before getting into that one. BF1 and Doom mainly have my attention on PC now with Destiny 2 on xbone. Upgrading for future games seems most logical considering newer games will require the power.

If I were to run dual monitor with the 1070 at 1080p for both, what would I be looking at for performance? 1440p isn't an immediate need for me, personally. I could save for the newest card but then the same situation when considering what is currently available for price per performance will come into play.

I don't want to come across as indecisive between these two cards, but with inputs from others compared to reviews and comparisons found on searches are invaluable.

are you planning on using both monitors to game or just one for doing non-gaming tasks and another for gaming?

If you are gaming on just one monitor the 2nd monitor shouldn't give you much of a performance hit at all.

If on both you are running it at 3840 X 1080 which is more demanding than 1440p but should be doable at 60 fps with lower settings (medium to high)

I'm figuring on using just the one monitoring for gaming and the other for tasks that I can view on a separate screen (not streaming or anything in that matter at this moment).

then the 1070 would be perfect for your situation in terms of cost/performance.

Strong 1080p performance and you can overclock it to near stock gtx 1080 performance if you want. My OC'ed ASUS Strix 1070 was always within 3-5 fps performance of my stock Asus Strix 1080 in games @ 1080p.

Thanks for the input. Very valuable along with everybody else's responses. I'm more leaning now towards the 1070 for now as it suits my current needs and what I'm planning on doing for what I have as a setup.

High end card come with better cooler & the chip is bigger. If you throw the exact processing requirement, the higher end graphic card will run cooler & have better reliability by default.
