5 out of 5 eggs Do I need this much video power? 11/15/2015

This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 980Ti 6GB G1 Gaming OC Edition

Pros: The card looks great! I like the programmable WINDFORCE LED for some reason...haha.

Powerful the reviews say. I replaced my HIS IceQ x2 GHz Edition 7970 card for this one.

I wanted a card that would easily do 4K. I like to know I'll have enough power for anything I throw at it...should I do so.

Cons: It's big and expensive

Other Thoughts: I don't own any games that will even come close to slowing this card down. All I have are old games and I rarely play them anyway. I did get a free game of some sort that I'll have to download....Assassin's Creed?? I'm sure it's a shooting game by the name of it....yawn. I'll install it just to look at the graphics and most likely uninstall it.

My 2 year old system:
ASUS ROG Rampage IV Extreme
3930K clocked to 4.5Ghz
Gigabyte G1 Gaming Geforce GTX 980Ti
32GB of G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series
2x Samsung SSD 256GB
Thermaltake SP-1200M 1200W Power Supply

I am a mild hobbyist that doesn't use my system to its full potential.

Pros: Fast... when it's actually working.

Cons: Poor quality. I've had two to go bad within the last year.

HIS Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition DirectX 11 H797QMC3G2M 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: I went slightly over-kill when I built my system especially sine I don't have any demanding games to play. However, I went with this card because it was fast in stock form and the reviews were IS fast! I've never overclocked the card and I don't see any reason why I should. It plays all my games with ease.

Cons: Length of card and weight but, with a large case, that's not a problem.

Other Thoughts: Core i7-3930K Six-Core Processor @ 4.2GHz
HIS Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition - STOCK
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB DDR3 2133
Thermaltake 1200W ATX Power Supply
