UK

and i3s would start to bottleneck a 980ti. They hold 970s up by up to about 20% on average, I'm not sure how much that scales. It wont be present in every game mind you but any cpu intensive titles certainly could cause slow downs. You might not notice it.. That is the problem, it will still play and if you aren't hawk eyeing your fps it wont matter much.
