NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 / Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz

It is clear that the GTX 1070 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. In terms of memory, the GTX 1070 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2016 .

NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X / Core i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of GTX TITAN X is simply ridiculous. With some tuning, the GTX TITAN X makes the most sense for gamers with 4K monitors. Though serious gamers hardly play at 4k. For those on 1080p or even 1440p monitors, the GTX TITAN X is very expensive and there are better value choices in the short term. It is worth noting that the GTX TITAN X is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX TITAN X 's 12288 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2015 .
