    That's a smart move IMHO.

    Newegg, the 980TI's are mostly over $900 CDN (real money to me) and then add 16% sales tax. I'm going to wait. Maybe Pascal by mid year and I'll look at AMD (Polaris) or whatever they have to offer. Maybe there will actually be direct x12 games out (LOL) in the next 6 months so I can see some benchmarking with the new architecture.

    Yeah, the only reason I made the jump was because a friend offered me his second 980Ti at a ridiculously low price ($450 USD). No way I could pass that up. I'm definitely seeing less issues in GTA V with a single card vs SLI.

    As for DX12...I tried to wait, but my FX8350 is holding back my new GPU pretty badly, so my new i5 6600K and DDR4 3200 RAM arrived this morning.

    Skylake 6600K. Four cores, 3.50GHz frequency, 3.90GHz maximum Turbo Boost frequency, 6MB last-level cache, dual-channel DDR3/DDR4 memory controller with 1600MHz or 2133MHz support, Intel HD Graphics 530-series integrated graphics core, LGA1151 packaging. Nice.

    With that speed and memory speed I think you will need something like this to keep up

    "Being the flagship of the lineup, NVIDIA will make their GP100 GPU their first graphics chip to support HBM2 memory with up to 1 TB/s of bandwidth and 32 GB VRAM"

    I'm trying to convince myself of that with my now dated rig. I suspect the Pascal pricing when it first comes out will stop me cold. But maybe not if there are actually Direct X12 PC games out and Direct X12 and Pascal deliver performance like the rumour mills are predicting. I might get pretty "warmed up".
