yea, if you want to do 4K gaming, you're not going any less than a 1080ti if you want 60 fps at high (or ultra depending on the game). Even a 1080 won't do the job. If you just want to do 120+ fps, it would depend on the resolution you're gaming at. Essentially though, I wouldn't go lower than a 1070 at the current market.

if it were me I'd get a mid tier gpu to hold me over and pay attention to the next gen cards or get a 1080ti.

4k any card you aint playing above 60fps. Buy a 1440p 144hz and enjoy the damned thing with a 1070 or above

This. 1440p is the sweet spot imo.

Get a 144Hz monitor and a 1080Ti and you're golden!
