Put them on a solo2 autoslalom course and you'd be amazed which one will win
Oh wait, they're in different categories, but still!

Question, would say two EVGA 980s for $850 a good deal? Really debating about it. Though, poor things would probably never be gamed on, but put to hard folding duty for most of their life.
40F is nothing! We regularly see as low as -30C here, and provided there's no wind I'm wearing what most would call a "fall" jacket.
As for the 980's, I'd say do it.

i read some people get 400-500k PPD on a 980... so I am not sure what to make of it, thoughts?
I average (work unit wise anyways) around 370k with a moderately overclocked GTX 980.
beat me to saying, ensure you've got a passkey up and aren't folding with the beta tag (I currently use -advanced) as beta units have no support and there's no guarantee on points. Also make sure to have ten successfully completed work units on your passkey as that's what it takes (plus an 80% completion rate) to get the quick return bonus (almost always abbreviated as QRB).
And yeah, if it's a core 15 you'll get very little for PPD - highest I've seen is 92k on them, as they don't have any QRB's. You can avoid getting them by folding in Linux, as Linux only gets core 17's and 18's.
