    Well as the 980ti puts down slightly better benchmark numbers than a 1070 I'd say no. Esp not for $240.

    I realize that you want more fps and power.  Have you considered the 3060?  Price is about $400 but it has power equivalent to the 1080.  Or go for a 2060...both would do more for you.  A used 1070 won't cut it for long

    Disregarding performance, I would for the sake of efficiency and reliability. The 980 Ti is a hardware failure just waiting to happen, in my opinion.

    I wouldn’t. I have two 980ti that still work fine
    Save the money and keep saving up for a better card sometime in the future

    Even if the 1070 was brand new I'd say no. But it certainly isn't worth paying that much for a used five year old card that could fail within a month, a year, or never.

    One thing that hasn't been mentioned is EVGA b-stock. If you can put a little more cash together there are some good deals there.

    You can easily get a 1080ti for 250ish cabbage but then again there will be many 3000 series GPUs at that price after the 4000 series are released this year. Please be patient

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags! The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.
