ZOTAC ZT-90503-10P GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1 - Great overclocker, currently have it stable at 1.5GHz core and 8GHz memory
2 - Quiet, it DOES have a 0db mode out of the box which I was unaware of
3- Cool, doesn't get past 67 degrees running Valley
4 - No coil whine
5 - Most affordable aftermarket cooled Ti - $625 after selling Batman
6 - Performance numbers nearly identical to SLI'd 970s
7 - Backplate

Cons: 1 - No LED
2 - Only 6 + 8 pin PCI-E (I've read less overclockability because of that?)

Other Thoughts: I recently switched from desktop gaming to laptop and opted for the Alienware 17 R2 with the Graphics Amplifier. Since the box does not allow for an SLI configuration, I wanted a beast of a single card and so far this has proven to be a great buy. I kind of wish it had an LED logo but seeing as I would never see it in the graphics amplifier, this is no big deal for me. The Witcher 3 is much more enjoyable now than with a single 970.

Transcend TS256GSSD370 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's about Corsair Force LX fast. Faster than PNY Optima. Not as fast as Crucial MX100 or Samsung 840 EVO. Those are the SSDs I own and can compare it to. The specs are: Read: 560MB/s Write: 460MB/s, Read/Write: 75000 IOPS, and uses Synchronous MLC flash. I got it for $75 so it was a great deal for me.

Cons: Ugly logo doesn't look good on a tray in an NZXT S340, will probably just plastidip it white.

Other Thoughts: Easy to install OS on.

MSI GeForce GTX 970 GTX 970 GAMING 4G 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Easily overclocked to 1550 MHz without raising voltage.
-4GB RAM, all graphic intensive future games will utilize this.
-NO coil whine (buy a reputable PSU guys...) Even a 650W Rosewill Hive suffices. 40 bucks.
-Silent up to 60°C, but can easily be changed with Afterburner. Nice for Dota, great for Far Cry 4.
-I've thrown Ultra settings at the card with all the latest games and there may be some stutters, but the performance you get at this price, it's going to be unbeatable for awhile.

Cons: I got it the week it came out and it's still the same price so no regrets. I'm becoming more and more MSI inclined with every computer I build and sell.

Other Thoughts: Rig:
Silverstone TJ08-E w/ window
i-5 4690k
MSI Z97M Gaming
16GB CORSAIR Vengeance 1600 CAS 8
Corsair H80i CPU coooler
500GB Samsung 840 Evo SSD
256GB Corsair Force LX SSD
256GB Crucial MX100 SSD
1TB WD Black HD
Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-650 650W
MSI GTX 970 Gaming
CORSAIR Vengeance Airflow Memory cooling fan
Corsair Air Series SP 120
ENERMAX UCTA18A-R 180mm Red LED Case Fan

Keep calm and Micro ATX on.
