That's a decent setup, to be sure. Your CPU and RAM should be be a good step ahead of the console offerings.

Should be, yes.

I'd ask for more specifics, but I suspect we can't really do benchmark comparison tests yet?

In general, I'd like to know how much better. My PC is about 4 years old now, though I've upgraded it a decent amount over the years (including the 980 ti). Trying to juggle if I can continue to upgrade it or if it would be better to just build a newer pc in the nearish future (a few years from now), or just let it be what it is and simply get an xbox for 3rd party games and some of their 1st party ones.

We can't know how much better yet because the complete specifications haven't been revealed, but at least in the PS5's case, we have an idea of where they're going with the GPU (and the 980 Ti is a Maxwell card, and wasn't even the best one at that, so it is a given that 2020 machines would have better GPUs in them).

In regards to an upgrade, not sure how much RAM matters to you, or the next generation of procs/GPUs (in addition to company choice), but I'd wait for DDR5 to upgrade (should reach the mass market by next year). Then again, I'm not quite doing that, with a plan to do a slight CPU upgrade and grab two new cards by the end of the year. I won't be getting DDR5 until 2021.
