I am currently trying to choose between getting a GTX 1070 or a 1080. I don't currently plan to game in 4K or anything highly stressful for the card, but I can't decide if I should get the 1080 more for "future-proofing" since I'm paying the money anyway.
It would be an extra two to three hundred pounds. Is the 1080 going to "keep up" for longer than the 1070 enough to justify that extra money?
Also, any other recommendation are highly welcome.
This PC is mainly just being used for work and videos. I'm assuming that GPU doesn't have a huge impact on video playback (i.e. YouTube) compared to other factors. I just want this PC to be able to handle gaming if I decide to make it my home PC at some point.
The 11 series should be at the same price-point of the card it replaces and offer better performance.
The current cards might even be a little cheaper once the new ones are out. I say might since the digital currency craze sort of messed up the Graphics Card industry for everyone else. Things are settling back down now.
