I've been following the 1070ti release as I am considering upgrading my GPU.

I'm currently running:
Geforce GTX 770
Intel i7-4790 CPU @ 3.6GHz
1920x1080 144Hz

My price point is $500.
I do not manually overclock (I've tried dabbling with Afterburner but don't feel confident/capable of doing it well).
I'm playing TotalWarWahammer 1 and 2 (and some Shadow of War). That's about it for games. Perhaps 10 hrs a week.
I don't care about looks.
I do care about value for money.
Looking for something that will last another 3-5 years at least.
I can be patient some as I can run my current games on medium/low settings but probably won't be able to run TotalWarWahammer 3 when it comes out.

1. I'm wondering if it's better to purchase the 1070ti Asus Rog Stix or MSI Gaming X for $500 or do I go for something like the 1080 MSI Armor (currently $510 with rebate)? I realize that only a few leaked benchmarks are out for the 1070ti but if I go that route should I anticipate pre-ordering to avoid cryptocurrency price jacking?

2. Is it worth scoping for Black Friday deals or will cryptocurrency craze jack up 1070ti prices too fast?

Thanks so much! GamerNexus forums helped me build my rig and I continue to love using it!

See www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id...War:%20Warhammer%202

A 1070 or Vega 56 would be fine for 1080p. A gtx1080 would be better. But I'd wait for reviews of the range of 1070Tis that are about to be released.
R7-1700 @3900/1.375V, H110iGT, ASRock x370 Taichi, GSkill 2x8GB 3200/14 @3466/14 1.38V, 250gb 960 EVO (W10), 2TB Barracuda, 1TB 850 EVO (video scratch), 2 x R9 Nano, EVGA G2 750, Enthoo Pro, LG 34UM88. Aizo kb, M6580, HyperX Cloud
