MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti GTX 980TI GAMING 6G 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support ATX Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Cool look red and black
-Fast as a Titan X or even faster for less $
-Runs cool w/Twin Frozr V fans (mine hasn't gotten over 70C)
-Runs quiet
-6 GB of VRAM
-Backplate
-OC headroom is really good
-No coil whine
-Beats AMD Fury X

Cons: -Pricey
-Don't pair it with a weak CPU or weak PSU
-no other cons if you can afford it - then get it

Other Thoughts: This card is absolutely fantastic, I am simply blown away. Even running it on my 27" Dell 4k monitor it maintains a solid 60FPS on BF4 at ULTRA settings. GTA V stays around 50-60 on max settings at 4k (I don't use AA on my 4k). It's truly a thing to behold. This is a real beast and if you have been trying to decide on which partner card to get then this is it - if you have the cash get it now. This is the one. Freakin' awesome. Just make sure you have a powerful CPU (to avoid bottlenecks) and a solid 600-650W PSU with two 8 pin PCI E plugs. Can't say enough good things about this baby.

MSI GTX 980Ti 6GD5 GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support ATX Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Fantastic power and speed- AMAZING PERFORMANCE
-Runs very quiet
-6 GB VRAM
-Awesome looking backplate
-Stays cool- idling high 20's - low 30's (C)
-Under load only hitting 65-69C (Twin Frozr fans work great)
-Two 8 pin PCI-E connectors means great OC potential
-Very cool look w/red and black design
-Equals a Titan X!!! For way less $
-Better choice than the AMD Fury if you compare them side by side- stats vs stats

Cons: -Ok, it is expensive
-Nothing else

Other Thoughts: I had a chance to upgrade to this card from my vanilla GTX 980 for about $150 after selling my 980 and throwing in a GTX 660 that doesn't even work properly. Not much of an upgrade you might think from a 980 to a 980 Ti? Oh no...It was! This card is absolutely amazing and dead silent. I'm running two 27" IPS monitors, one is a ASUS 2640x1440, and the other a Dell 3840x2160 @60Hz (UHD or 4K).

They say this isn't a true "4k" card by itself, but it is. I can run BF4, all setting maxed and only AA and AA post turned off (everything else on ULTRA and HBAO on) and it stays around 65-70FPS. In 4k! Wow it looks absolutely stunning. It freaks you out the first time you see it. Simply incredible. On the 1440p monitor it stays in the (90's and spikes over 100 FPS).

This card is really a fantastic top shelf card and if you have the money get it. You won't need any new graphics card for years. There is nothing really negative about it other than the price. And it is a better card than the AMD Fury. I could have had either card, and I picked this one without a second thought.

Oh and MSI Afterburner works great controlling the Twin Frozr fan speed and Oc'ing the card. Just getting started OC'ing but it looks like it will do very well.

Just FYI - Better have a good CPU for this one guys. I have an i7 4790k running at 4.6GHz so no issue there. But your CPU could be a bottleneck if its older.

Dell P2715Q Black 27
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -great colors right out of box
-can set response time to 6ms GTG
-no back light bleeding or dead pixels
-it's IPS!
-newer version A01 now shipping fixing A00 issues

Cons: -limited control over color/adjustments
-not a fancy appearance

Other Thoughts: I was ready to step up to a 4k for mostly video work - but I also wanted to be able to game with it a little. This monitor caught my eye but I saw that many were complaining about display port issues when coming out of sleep mode. This was all on version A00 the initial run of this monitor. I fonund this monitor on sale for just over $500 and took a chance. Boy am I glad I did. Fantastic picture right out of the box. Really crisp and sharp. Mine had no backlight bleeding and zero dead pixels. I noticed my monitor was version A01 so I tried to recreate the sleep problem glitch. It's fixed! No display port probs at all! Tried it over three or four days waking from sleep dozens of times. No problem! Runs at 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz. Awesome! So then I set the response to "fast" (6ms) and tried BF4 and GTA V. Wow. My jaw almost hit the floor. BF4 looks stunning. Absolutely stunning. Very little if any ghosting and it played great. I set MSAA to x2 and turned off Ambient Oclusion and was staying around 50 FPS (I have an i7 4790k and a MSI Gaming GTX 980 4GB). GTA V looks amazing too. High settings 50-60 FPS. I'm getting a second 980 soon so I'm not worried about frame rates right now.

Very - very happy with this monitor. Some say it's "plain looking" (the monitor not the screen) but I like it. And it feels well made and very solid.

If you have the graphics card to push it and have been considering stepping up to 4k you should look at this monitor. I so glad I did.
