    I want a video card that would allow me to play at 4k resolutions...Which one should I get? I currently own a GTX 770 4GB and looked up a 980 a 970 and a Titan X....

    970 is a bad idea for 4k (too slow, memory issues), Titan X is overpriced.
    Currently the 980 is the best option, though probably still not fast enough for 4k and everything set to max in many games (and 4GB might be a bit on the low side for 4k).

    If you can wait a few weeks, the 980ti and/or the 390(X) might be just what you are looking for.

    Thanks. I think I might wait to see what the GTX 980ti has to offer...

    I wouldn't bother with 4k gaming yet. It'll be expensive for something that's not nearly as good as what you can get in a couple years, and you sacrifice on refresh rates, input lag and gsync/freesync support compared to quality monitors for gaming. Would get something like the Asus PG278Q ROG Swift for high-end gaming. (27", 1440p, 144 Hz, G-Sync)
