Honestly my 970 kept up great at 1080p 60fps with 95% of games. I did get lucky it, as it overclocked extremely well for being on air, 1650 core. The 1080ti is an absolute beast! I do need to decide on a monitor soon though, as I'm still at 1080p right now. I just benched a few games it is more than double in a few LMAO, and my new ti doesn't even seem to oc to well. Sell them now,or wait a month or so, gpu mining not very profitable at the moment with bitcoins current turmoil with segwit on august 1st. ( I have a 1070 mining rig and might build a 1080ti mining rig) Its interesting as 1070 and 1080 prices have gotten out of control because of mining, but 1080ti prices haven't been affected much. I think its because most people see mining benches for the 1080ti and see it doesn't do well mining a single coin, but it does great at dual mining, especially with a lower tdp set.
