All shitposting aside, will the 970 be able to run a single monitor ultra 1080p at 60FPS for at least the next 3 years?

in 3 years everything will be vr, so no

maybe. It'll be fine. It also depends on your CPU.

It'll last 3 years, but by then you won't be running new games at ultra.
Maybe med/high with the more expensive eye-candy stuff like AO turned off.

No. Every 970 has the 3.5gb issue.
You shouldnt worry since you'll be running stuff on 1080p, where there is no need for 4gb of VRAM.

I'd still get a 980.

970 is fine for the next couple years OP dont worry about the shitposting

ultimately it depends on how well the games are optimised

alien isolation one of the best looking games and runs like butter

if the game is poorly optimised the 970 will struggle obviously

worst case scenario for most games is you will have to play on high instead of ultra
>>
>>323666628
A year or so maybe? It entirely depends on how demanding the game you're playing is. "Ultra" doesn't really mean anything.

Pascal/Arctic Islands will be out this summer with 16nm/14nm and Gen2 HBM.
The 970 is already no longer a mid range card, and it's running GDDR5 with the 3.5GB issue.

Of course not, they'll gimp it via driver updates starting next year and you'll be fucked.

I have that exact 970 and it struggles with witcher 3 on high. I'd avoid it personally, but for the most part it's alright.

It really depends. I have a 970 so I won't lie to you. The moment devs make games that go past the 3.5 GB limit, our cards shits the fan

Seems to be the best choice if going for a 970. But what do you manage on TW3?

i was thinking about getting the r9 fury for $499 to replace my 660ti. but, i think i'm just going to wait for pascal since i can still run everything 1080p on med-high settings. the performance gap is supposed to be pretty big so i would consider waiting if you have something decent for the time being.

I have that card. Built a new rig about a year ago.

MSI - 970
i5 - 4690k cpu
16 BM memory

With 1080P its been really good to me so far,, no issues so far. For the cost and performance you get its great.
>>
>>323666342
I got this exact card for Christmas. Can run almost everything on ultra, it's a great card for its price, very quiet, but the 3.5gb VRAM meme is true, but you shouldn't come accross any issues if you're playing at 1080p.
>>
If a 970 on ultra won't last past a few years, then how long will a R9 390 last?
>>
>>323668505
Longer because it actually has 4 GB worth of VRAM

Get a fucking 390

Does 970 worth my money if I'm gonna stick with 1440x900 for another 3-5 years.
I really don't care about 4K and too lazy to upgrade to 1080p.

Or should I buy AMD?

I just worry about the whole VRAM thing since I fear that future game will require more than 4GB.

No one can give you an answer but what we do know is no game current reach that limit but we are close.

It's not the card's fault, it's the developers. Blame devs for making games that can't run above 60fps on ultra even on two SLI 980Tis.
>>
>>323668954
SoM eats whatever VRAM you can give it. It is a bug that got patched already. The problem with the 970 isn't the fact that it is 3.5. If the drivers are coded to recognise 3.5 gb as the limit then the games won't go anywhere near that amount, shit will just take longer to load. Because Nvidia refuses to admit their mistakes, the 970 is a 3.5 GB card recognised as a 4GB one so when games need more VRAM, they just allocate more VRAM to the game and once it goes over the 3.5 GB limit, the shit hits the fan.
>>
>>323668973
Dude its even worse, retailers actually increased prices of 970+ cards near the end of the year because demand was so high.

The idiocy of the general populace never ceases to amaze. Nvidia just got sued over this card and people STILL buy it, knowing full well what they're buying.

>>323669236
My gpu idles at 80 degrees and goes up to 90+ degrees on load. No issue here.

>>323669367
Wait they actually got sued? Link.
>>
>>323669367
Honestly, I blame that mostly on AMD since they failed to use that whole fiasco to actually put out competitive card and for a good price.

The closes you would get is 390 and that shit is just way too loud under load and uses too much power compared to 970.

But yeah, buying 970 after all that is like giving nvidia approval to do it again.
>>
>>323669236
Too lazy. I just gave up on PC gaming since I don't know what should I upgrade.

I also need to save my cash for Japanese lessons.

I also want a 3DS too.

devs are just lazy cunts and inflate the system requirements to make up for lazy programming and optimisation

a lot of games look much worse than others while running worse at the same time

In fact there are current games that require more total video memory than the 970 has.

Ultra 1080p for 3 years on a fairly old mid range card? Don't think so

Most likely have to turn down settings to high in late 2016 and medium in 2017

Remember when the 9800GT was the 980Ti of it's time? Didn't last 3 years before being completely obsolete.

So doesn't matter what GPU you buy today, they are going to be obsolete by some new tech a couple of years from now.

Of course they got sued. People who build for quality performance could never push their cards to the limits that Radeons in the same class (that also cost less at the time) could hit. Then they found out that the hardware on the card was so flawed that the VRAM slowed to stupidly low rates when you tried to max gfx intensive games. Some people bought 2 of them, the poor idiots.

The only way of making it struggle with witcher is by turning hairworks or whatever that unoptimized garbage is called on.

Hair works off, everything on high maintains a solid 60fps at 1080 outside of novigrad, in novigrad it chugs a bit and occasionally stutters during weather
