So, I have a 780 I bought about a year ago. It's still a great card but some games won't max out anymore on it. It might just be me wanting the best but is it really worth the money to upgrade now, or should I wait it out until next years selection (GTX 1080 or 1080ti, or however the naming convention will be)?

Wait
the 780 is fine for at least two more years
If you really want to upgrade go with an R9 Fury

It really depends on how you game...

Are you playing AAA titles? Indy Games?

Are you Gaming at 1080p? 1440p? 4k?

For me, I have 2x GTX 770's I can play MOST games with the settings maxed out at 1080p.

I cannot game at 4k because the 770s only have 2GB of memory.

I will be upgrading when Nvidia launches their new graphics cards because I want to game at 4k, and I don't want to upgrade to the 900 series cards (not a big enough performance boost)

If you plan to stay at 1080p for a while, the 780 should still have a year or 2 of life in it (maybe even more if DX12 is all that it promises to be)

Maybe a little, but if I can afford something that has power, and wont be outdated so quickly, I'd get it.

But if you already have something that is capable of playing games at Max settings at 60fps... then what is the point of getting something that going to let you play those same games at say 80fps? You're not going to be able to see that difference, ESPECIALLY if you're monitor is set to 60hz...

It isn't worth upgrading until the gear you have, isn't able to meet your goals.

I'd wait. You won't be getting your money's worth upgrading to a 970. Waiting will (likely) get you a much better card for the same price.
