1080p right?

I'd go for the GTX 970. Pretty much max any game at the resolution.

I was taking a good look at the MSI GTX 970 Gaming Gold Edition for $470 at MemX, it's just I don't need a card right now. But that cards looks pretty sweet.

Ofcourse the $80 premium over the cheaper 970s is a let down.

A GTX 970 would be my choice of replacement too.

I have had my Gigabyte G1 Gaming since Oct 6, best graphics card I have owned to date, I had a GTX 680.
the G1 Gaming overclocks very nice and max temp under full load is 68c, but most of the time it drops right
back down to 65c and this is with the fans on auto mode, it comes with a factory overclock of 1329mhz
myself and others have got it to over 1600mhz but average stable is 1575mhz.

I think it's just the all cooper cooler, higher stock clocks and having a back plate that is the difference between the golden gaming and the regular gaming. Also apparently a limited edition card with a total of 2000 units made.

jlhawn, yes the G1 is a great card I hear too, nothing but good things I heard about that beast. Just isn't sold at Memoryexpress.

I'd go with the msi 970 golden...just because I bought a set haha. But I do feel the price is kind of high at $470 considering I payed $400 each. If ya got the money and don't mind the premium i'd go for it.
