ASUS GeForce GTX 980 GTX980-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card

Pros: FAST, quiet, low power consumption, wonderful build quality.

I upgraded to a 980 from a 670 and the difference is literally twice the performance if not more! This card literally eats games for breakfast lunch and dinner.... and dessert. Recently purchased Shadow of Mordor and this card runs that game maxed out at 1080p at over 60fps no problem!

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-0974-KR 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Superclocked ACX G-Sync Support Video Card

Pros: I still cant get over how well this card performs for the price. Unbelievably fast and very quiet! Also stays very cool as well. Ive been running tests and benchmarks on it for hours straight and i cant get enough. Currently running BF4 at 1080p fully maxed out with 100-125fps..... completely eats up games like D3, Sc2, Dota/League of Legends. On top of all that, its smaller, adn performs TWICE AS WELL as my previous GTX 670 FTW edition from EVGA, which i had for about 2 years and never had a single problem with.

ALSO, this thing can handle quite the overclock, ive got the core clock about 100MHz past the factory overclock and she runs like a charm!

Cons: I wouldnt consider this a con so to say, but if youre looking to do anything past 1440p gaming i would at the very least look at the gtx 980, but even then, youll need 2 of either the 970 or 980 to pull 60fps at 4k resolution...

Other Thoughts: I can understand the one of the reviewers points before me, sayiong they felt like the card was "cheap". Well thats probably because the entire shroud for the cooler is made out of plastic.... but so are 90% of other aftermarket coolers out there.... EVGA has been doing this a long time, and ive had the pleasure of working with a handful of their cards, not once have i been let down. Ive heard complaints about them all, ASUS/MSI/Zotac/PNY etc... guess what, EVGA has possibly the best warranty program of them all.
