Gpu upgrade

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i was about to buy a 390x when my local retailer got 980ti's on stock, they have references ones and evga sc+, the prices difference is 200$, will the 980ti worth it? I am planning on getting a 1080p 144hz by the end of december, is the reference cooler on ti enough? the evga sc+ is 45$ more.

The original plan was 390x + 16gbram + storage upgrade.

If you wanna go balls to the wall with pretty much the most powerful single gpu solution get the 980ti. the reference will do you just fine but if you wanna overclock it and really push some extra fps out down the road the evga would hands down be the best bet due to their acx cooler helping keep temps chilly.
