Good Card

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card TURBO-GTX970-OC-4GD5
ASUS GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card TURBO-GTX970-OC-4GD5

Pros: Card is sleek-looking, and easy to install. It's slightly longer than my GTX-570 Twin Frozr III's, but only by about half an inch. I was running two of the GTX 570's in SLI, but knew that their limited 1GB of memory would hamper my performance on Witcher 3. After doing some research, I found that I could still keep one of my GTX 570's as a dedicated PhysX card (without having to run SLI). Needless to say, my machine is a beast, and the GTX970 runs smooth. I haven't had a chance to test other games like Skyrim (with lots of mods), but have no doubt it will run smoothly, as I am running Witcher 3 at max settings, and am having very few problems. (If anything, the latest patches have caused some slight problems with framerate stuttering, which I did not have during 1.02. Not sure if I can revert the patches without messing up my gamesaves, though.) All in all I am happy the the card at present, though I need to do some more testing. Other PC specs are: Core I7 2600k @ 3.9ghz w/ Zalman 9700 Fan ASRock Z67 mobo 16gb GSkill Sniper DDR3 1866 OCZ 128GB SSD, w/ 1TB WD Caviar Black HDD

Cons: Has a bright-white LED on the PCB that doesn't turn off with the computer. Stupid thing always stays on. Minor annoyance, but not sure why it's built that way?
