i currently own a 1060 3gb and i found a good deal on a used 980 Ti for around 210 usd. So i just wanted to know weather its a good upgrade or not.
My other specs are
i3 8100
2x8 gb ram 24000mhz
H310 mobo
coolermaster MW550

A 980 Ti is more in line with a 1070 as far as FPS goes so yes it is an upgrade but there is one problem, in 2020 9XX GPUs will go into full Legacy mode which means no more driver support and API's will optimize around them last.

$210 is also on the expensive side, a more reasonable price is around $160. $210 used is in line with what a used 1070 runs for right now.



This was a 15-second search of online classifieds, I can pull up several others with prices that are relatively the same.

I have to agree. 1660 Super should be a consideration. It's new, Driver support into the future as pointed out, and little difference in price.
