Geforce Asus GTX 970 4GB STRIX
>muh $5 a year
Mommy probably pays the power bill anyway, so why do you care?
kind of a stupid card to get. it's overkill if you want to play recent games on 1080p and at the same time it's not future proof because muh 3.5.
get a 960 or 380(x) if you don't need the extra power right now.
Why do you girls spend so much money on a graphics card, you like to play your faggy games?
Grow up already.
>heat? noise? what are those?
I have one and have only heard coil whine once and very low when it was rendering 2000+ fps, asides of being low, it won't achieve that much on 99.1% of any game ever. You might try to rma it
It's an easy thing to spend money on, something you think you'll enjoy because you did it as a kid. I find I either feel like a man child while playing them or just not interested.

>Stop it, it triggers my autism when people do things that I don't like, despite the fact they have no significant impact on my life what-so-ever.
This, especially since brands like ASUS and MSI are recycling the same aftermarket coolers. We've pretty much entered a golden age of aftermarket coolers and not a moment to soon since 28nm will be out the window and hopefully the next shrink has GPUs running cooler and using less power.
I think the point is that nobody should base their decision about which high end graphics card to buy based on power efficiency. It's a stupid argument.
AMD CPUs are garbage compared to Intel. You will end up bottlenecking the card in any CPU intensive program. Even AMD themselves recommend using an Intel CPU for benchmarks and intense gaming.
980Ti price drop when?
its nice but i would look for one with better vrm cooling. the asus one only has a tiny little heatsink and the vrm does have any contact with the heatsink that cools the gpu core.
the gigabyte one has better vrm cooling as it has contact with the main heatsink.
A friend of mine is looking for a meme card, is the evga sc+ acx 2.0 good?
Is there even a real difference in overclocking potential between these models or is it all the same shit with MUH MARKETING behind it?
I see a lot of people saying different stuff everywhere but I know that customers tend to parrot shit they know nothing about and pass it as fact.
