    If you aren't overclocking and not concerned about noise, no need to buy one of these cards. A reference design will do you just fine.

    Personally I think it's crazy to not overclock but there we go... Also crazy to want your fans to spin when not needed!

    A 970 is a tad slower than a 980, name 1 game that runs well on a 980 but cannot run well on a 970?

    Good luck getting one. The card was released on EVGA's site and sold out almost instantly. Looks like they're releasing it in small batches.

    I think that was the acx 1.0 on the early batches of 970's (where they were using old 780ti coolers). The 970 ACX 2.0 has all 3 pipes hitting the GPU. Each manufacturer's 970 cooler performs nearly identical, within a degree or two (forget which site had that 970 comparison).

    Was going to say I am surprised by some of these comments, but its just business as usual here.

    I'm not sure either. I've yet to find a game it doesn't just rape @1080p. I suspect it'll be a year or two before I ever do and by then, I'll grab another (by then, I suspect, sli 970's for less than a single 980 today, altogether) ...or get the next GPU series.

    The 980 seems more for 1440p+ gaming.

    still, there's only a few frames between them, you would struggle to notice the difference without staring at OSDs and performance charts.

    I bought the Gigabyte version because the brand is just solid. Mobo's, at least 3 diff gpu's, never any issues. Very good support and utilities as well.

    I intend on a mild oc, and to be able to enjoy max settings on games for the next year - 18 months.

    My MSI 980 has been a champ so far, very stable. It does not have a backplace but there is a metal brace on the side of the card to prevent sagging.

    Unless your monitor is 120 Hz or more I would get a 970 instead.
