I have a chance at both of these cards this coming weekend..I would be able to test both before buying to make sure they function properly. Both are being advertised as less than a month old and basically new. Both are claiming to have all the paperwork necessary to prove validity. I'd probably be able to haggle the 980 Xtreme down to 350..but even then, would it be worth it over the EVGA model? I might be OC'ing. I really need some solid, thought out opinions! There's the rumors about Pascal as well to consider. But even given the new lineup of GPU's, I highly doubt there will be a card that outperforms the 980 for $300-$375. Thanks in advance!
