I'd wait even longer to be honest, the next meaningful upgrade from a 970 would either be in SLI, or go for the more costly 980ti, unless you can snag a 295x somewhere along the line (I personally would prefer 980ti over 970 SLI given the choice now, as 980ti is roughly on par with SLI 970's, which makes 980ti a better choice, but you probably will have to sell the 970 to fund the card).

 

The chip is aging, but it should still be adequate for your 970. For the last few generations CPU performance growth have slowed down to a near halt (increasing by mere single digit % each generation), and even then the CPU often is not a bottleneck as long as you have it clocked at a decent speed (something like 3.6Ghz+), so your 2400 should still be in no rush to upgrade.

 

Pascal should be a nice time to upgrade though, DDR4 ram should come down even more and there should also be a few more Skylake CPUs around to make a better decision. A decent monitor upgrade should also be in order (perhaps more budget G-sync monitors should be available).

 

EDIT: On actual gaming topic, I absolutely cannot wait for 2.3.0, that cube and Yang's Recurve is amazing...

I have seen 1 furnace and 1 SMK, though what I haven't seen is Calamity.

 

In fact I didn't realise I had an SMK on one of the servers until I checked it up, I hadn't even rolled a WD on that server either.

 

Been contemplating on getting MGS:V, the preorder bonus is currently getting both parts of the game for $60.

The next Spotlight on the minigame is on 25th August, so if you can wait that long. GOP addict also tend to be more active during spotlight as well.

Problem is that 2h melee abilities are lackluster compared to dual wield.

WoW isn't a pay 2 win because there is no microtransaction in WoW that helps directly with getting loot from raids. You can buy gold yes, but gold only gets you so far.

 

Even if you are into 'buying' loot, you are still going to be, at most, same as everyone else. There is nothing you can pay for in WoW that makes you better than someone else who doesn't.

 

Edit:

 

For Steam sale I got

 

Wolfenstein: Old Blood

Age of Mythology Extended Edition

Final Fantasy 13-2

 

Currently flipping back and forth between RS (hoping to max before a new skill), FF13 and FF4 on steam (don't ask...)

 

Aiming to get all achievements on FF13, currently abusing Death on Adamantoises for ingots.
