EVGA GeForce GTX 980 04G-P4-2983-KR 4GB SC GAMING w/ACX 2.0, 26% Cooler and 36% Quieter Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought the GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 to replace my EVGA GTX590 Classified. Couldn't be happier. Runs cooler, faster and was cheaper. Also uses a lot less electricity.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got the gtx590 in 2011 for $750 and got the GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 for $500. Ran Heaven benchmark on both and averaged 61fps with the gtx590 and 98fps with the gtx980. The gtx980 also significantly increased increased fps in games. Puts out less heat into my corsair 600t case, which makes my i7 2600k with a H80 cooler run a couple degrees cooler.

Pros: Upgraded from a GTX590. The 590 was $750 and the 980 was only $500. Heaven benchmark @1080 went from an average of 61fps to 98fps, smoothed out the new Dawn demo and in Real Myst masterpiece the fps without vsync went from low 30fps to over 100fps. I love it.

Cons: Time to retire the GTX 590, it got me though very well on many excellent games. Like losing a good friend. Well will probably keep it for a backup.

Other Thoughts: Can't wait for Obduction to come out this fall. Got it during the kickstart funding. Loved all the Myst games except for Myst V being so-so. Obduction is the reason I upgraded. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was a nice bonus but don't care for fps games. Might of tried it except my gaming machine isn't conected to the internet and don't care for steam. Might of been nice to get it on DVD, but oh well, didn't buy the card for the free game anyway.

EVGA GTX 590 CLASSIFIED Limited Edition 3GB 768-bit GDDR5 PCI express 2.0 x16, 3xDual-Link DVI, DisplayPort,  HDCP Ready, QUAD SLI Ready, PhysX, 3D Vision Surround Support Video Card
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Still going strong 4 years now. Moved up to this from a GTS250, what an upgrade!

Cons: Heat. But never past 80 - 85 C. I don't use the AC much.

Other Thoughts: I don't play real demanding games, Tomb Raider games are probly the the most demaning, and am getting 100fps minimum. But love tech demos, like Heaven and Valley from unigine and others. I Have a gtx980 from evga on the way. the gtx590 still going strong, but time for a vacation, and use as a backup.
