Nice catch on the single 8 pin, didn´t notice that! It´s gonna have some impact on the oc limits but it´s okay for me. For me it´s more important the cooling performance and the noise made by it. My previous GTX970 from MSI was silent 90% of the time and for me that was the best part of the card. I hope this one is also silent or close. @Hittrix, i know i´m pushing it if i buy a 4K screen to go with the 1080 but the screen is something i keep for a very long time, 5 years minimum, and here at Portugal the price of 4K screens is basically the same price as the 1440p ones... For example i´m looking at a Samsung 28 4k screen with Freesync that costs 345€ and i can´t find a 1440p one cheaper than this!... Not to mention i don´t mind playing games with lower settings or play the most demanding ones at 1440p, if necessary. Still feel free to recomend a 1440p if you want and i´ll give it a look.
