Drop a knowledge bomb on me...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
In a bit of a mental pickle as to what to do with my current graphics card situation. I currently have a EVGA 970 GTX SSC ACX 2.0+ that works just fine, but I wanted to do the G10/AIO mod to it. Never peaks 70C but I figure it wouldn't hurt to have case temps a little lower.

I have the ability to get a refund for 5 more days on he 970, so that got me thinking. The cost of the card was $340, +$125 or so to do the G10/AIO mod. Which would put the cost of the card at about $465. For $200 more I could get an EVGA 980TI Hybrid. My biggest concern is will the performance increase blow my socks off and make the extra $200 feel like money well spent?

At this moment I only play GTA V and CS:GO, no editing or anything like that.

Any input greatly appreciated.

I guess 970 to 980 depends on the resolution you play at.

The 980ti is on par or just a bit slower than the 970 in sli and overclocked is a bit faster than the 970 sli. In the end its about your resolution. Playing at 1080p 60 hz not worth it playing at 1440p or higher massive increase on a single 970

Well I'm still playing at 1080p, but with a 144hz monitor. I went ahead and ordered the 980TI Hybrid, hope it won't let me down!
