Btw the build quality is insane card is much heavier then Strix and it looks gorgeous.





Congrats on the clocks! I'm surprised thumb.gif Now game on!!

Hello-
I'm looking to replace my 6970 with either the 970 or 980 from Best Buy. This thread was nice for the 970, but I didn't find anything on the 980. Does anyone have the reference 980 from Best Buy? Is the $170 premium for the 980 worth it? Thanks for any input!

It's been my understanding the premium for the 980 has not been worth it. I have never owned a 980 however, so maybe someone else with both can chime in.

You can also talk to BestBuy and have them order any piece of hardware and then price match it when you pick it up. This way, you can do returns to the store instead of having to RMA it back to Amazon
