Nothing I've seen justifies the extra expense of the 980. I personally chose the 970.

Agreed I have 2 gtx 970s SSC and for gaming wise right now the fact there so close in memory that there's like really no difference so no not worth the extra $200 at all I mean if they had more memory like 4 more gbs not .5 then yeah it would be worth it.  Also im gonna be selling my 2 gtx 970 SSC In the next few months if interested Im thinking on getting 2 gtx Titan Xs

I have a GTX 970 and I can say it will play everything you need. For myself I have a GTX 560 Ti at the time before I switched over so if you haven't upgraded in a while it wouldn't hurt top get a GTX 980. Especially since its not like your going to be upgrading very year as they pop out. I mean I Literally used my 560 Ti to play everything right up until I found a game it couldn't play and thats when I upgraded.

The 970 offers a much better value for the performance it delivers, unless you absolutely need the best performing single card (which would be the new Titan, please don't buy as it's less worth the money than ever!) I'd get the 970, you may also wish to wait for the upcoming release of AMDs new cards as I believe they are coming within the month.
