Best in class

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 980Ti 6GB G1 Gaming OC Edition
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 980Ti 6GB G1 Gaming OC Edition

Pros: Crushes anything I throw at it with maxed settings at 1440p, runs cool, dead silent unless under extreme load (ie. even on Witcher 3/GTAV/MGSV max everything, overclocked, 1440p it is borderline silent).

Cons: A bit pricey, but outperforms a TitanX when OC'd for a good deal less money.

Overall Review: If you can afford it, buy it. Has performed beautifully in the couple months I've had it.

Dust and Dead Pixel

Acer XB270HU bprz Black 27'' 144 Hz WQHD G-SYNC Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 350 cd/m2 1,000:1
Acer XB270HU bprz Black 27'' 144 Hz WQHD G-SYNC Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 350 cd/m2 1,000:1

Pros: Beautiful display - colour is fantastic, view angle is excellent, 144hz and Gsync IPS, can't go wrong. Low light bleed.

Cons: One dead pixel on far right of screen, not really a big deal, but there is a patch of dust about the size of 6 pixels under the screen that is HUGELY distracting. Light bleed in bottom right, but not a whole lot, and not uncommon in an IPS. Going to likely have to RMA. If it were the one dead pixel off to the side, no big deal (though for the price I'd want no dead pixels), but the dust in the dead centre is impossible to ignore.

Overall Review: Manufactured in June, so at least some of the QA issues continue.
