Your purchase should be guided by, in part, the games you play and which FPS count are you aiming for:
For a quick overview I jump over to guru3d.com. Ignore that the following is a 590 review - check to see if any of your preferred games are benchmarked:

I'm mostly just frustrated with NVidia's pricing on this series of cards.
I bought a 2560x1440 GSync Display about 18 months ago and I know I would benefit from a new card at that resolution..

You could even buy a GTX 1070 Ti and that $400 games console you mention ...
The last gen technology is whats really bothering me.

Plus the 1070ti gets me 55-80 fps at 2560x1440 in most modern games, that becomes 45-70 in 6-9 months and 40-60 in 10-18 months. But I do agree the price to performance is a lot more tolerable, I'm just worried there won't be a lot of longevity.
Topinio wrote:You seem to have the ability to tolerate low FPS, given the 970, so could the 1070 Ti be a tolerably good improvement for that 1 to 1.5 years? Asking because NVIDIA's time interval between top-end car drops is usually well within that up to ~550 days and you might hope that pricing will become saner by then?

Also your last statement that it will be 20-24 months before we get a new generation of cards, is part of the reason I'm leaning toward the 2080. What am I going to do wait 6 months for the cards to drop $50-75. Also since the TI dropped with the main cards we don't know if there will be a mid cycle release.
