GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition SLI Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.


Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.


GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs codenamed GM204-400-A1 which, together, offer 3328 Shader Processing Units, 208 TMUs and 128 ROPs, on a 512-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1178MHz and goes up to 1329MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1753MHz.


Power Consumption
Power Consumption lies between 300W and 400W.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 4K (3840x2160) GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition SLI is over 6% faster than GeForce GTX 970 4GB SLI and as fast as AMD's Radeon R9 295X2.


System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i7 Six Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 16GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition SLI.

Not sure if I should get a second 970 or just wait to see what pascal offers.

750W, but if the effincy are low you should get 850W to be safe. Your current rig can handle a single 970. You will need a new psu for sli, also an i5 will probably bottleneck 2x970, so that would require a new CPU as well, if you want both GPUs to run at max usage ;)

1150 socket are fine, but I see that your mobo only supports CF, not SLI. So you can run 2 AMD cards, but your current mobo can only run 1 nvidia carf. So for 970 SLI you will need a new mobo. If you however choose 2 Radeon 390/390X your fine with current mobo.

For CPU on 1150 socket an i7 4770 or i7 4790 would be a good upgrade. you will need the k series (4770k/4790k) if you plan to overclock your CPU.
However the cheapest upgrade would be a single 970 and keeping current mobo and cpu ;)
