if you can afford the 1080 then get it, it'll make sure you have plenty of power for a few years down the road. If budget is of concern the 1070 will easily play most games at 1440 60fps on ultra. The gtx 1080 EVGA FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 is a fine card as is the gtx 1070 Asus ROG STRIX-GTX1070-O8G-GAMING. Good luck

I have a 980ti (5 frames on avg less than the 1070) and I still find issues with some triple A games on max settings. However, for the games you mentioned, playing those games at 1440p at 60fps+ is easily done.

Overall, picking the card brand is up to you but in my experience I've always enjoyed using EVGA or ASUS cards.

Also, welcome to the pc master race lol
