They are all 980ti anon, some difference in fans and screw and shit but that's it. Also people who talk shit like they do know the difference between the same card from two makers, really don't.
>hey pham how do u want your 900 series card?
just evga my shit up
All the heavily overclocked ones seem to coil whine like a bitch, that is if you can hear it over the obnoxiously loud fans
I wouldn't get a 980ti unless you plan on running it at stock speed, just wait for pascal
If price/ space is no issue. EVGA kingpin
Otherwise probably MSI Twin Frozr os ASUS Strix
I personally prefer the Gigabyte G1 Gaming because I like to compensate for my micro dick with the triple fan designs.
Should I wait for a price drop on the 980s or buy the next batch of gpu?
Still rocking 680 gtx but it's almost four years now and planning to upgrade.
You will never buy anything then because this is literally always the case and right when the next cards come out within a year or even a few months you will be saying the exact same thing.
>he doesn't realize all maxwell cards will drop 30%+ the second pascal has an official release date, which is schedule to be mid 2016.
you obviously have no fucking clue what you're talking about so kindly fuck off.
I have a 670 and I can still run literally anything I want at mostly high settings. Every now and then I run into a game where I have to run medium. The difference in medium vs high or ultra outside of texture quality is so minuscule these days, though.
>he thinks the second release will be a proper revision and not just the standard staggered release of the same gen
No, you obviously have no clue what the fuck you are talking about.
you're so fucking stupid. goddamn fucking inbreds posting on this board.
it doesn't matter if pascal work or not, maxwell will drop in price since it goes from being CURRENT gen to "PREVIOUS" gen overnight.
>it doesn't matter if pascal work or not, maxwell will drop in price since it goes from being CURRENT gen to "PREVIOUS" gen overnight.
Performance and availability dictates price for computer components. If pascall doesn't work out then maxwell won't plummet in price at all, doesn't matter if it's "old gen" or not. If it's only marginally better than maxwell will only marginally drop in price.
Depends what you're aiming for.
ASUS is a nice all around with good factory clocks and STRIX models have 0% fan mode on idle/lower temps.
Gigabyte has a decent factory clocks but an amazing heatsink fan which results in a lot of overhead for clocking more or just keeping temps down. They are long as fuck though to accommodate their long, 3 fan heatsink design.
MSI is really hit or miss, same with Zotac. Check the reviews for either. MSI does have a nice pairing with Corsair for water cooled though if you're intent on really pushing it with overclocks.
EVGA doesn't necessarily have the best for clocks or cooling, but they have great customer service and lots of plans like trade in/replacement.
>My 980ti identifies as an attack helicopter
Same. It was the first card I've owned that had a 0% fan mode. Kind of shocked me when it first happened, the sudden stop of any audible noise from my PC caught my attention, thought something happened.
It's gonna fucking SUCK buying graphics cards when AMD finally goes under. Nvidia is price gouging already. When they have 0 competition, it's going to be a goddamn nightmare.
