Cons: none experienced yet, will update if I do.
Anyway, this card is an absolute stonker! Bought as a replacement for my dead Zotac GTX 770 AMP! which in itself was a beast. This card is something else though. It's super quiet, even under load. It handles anything you can throw at it (I only use 1900x1080) on Ultra settings, is easy to install and set up and just looks amazing. Beautiful piece of gear!
If you're considering a top end graphics card and want something powerful and quiet, this is a 'Must buy'! If you can afford the 980 then I am jealous, but this will do just fine for us mere mortals.
There are some good reviews of this card vs other GTX 970's and this tends to win across the board. Do yourself a favour and buy this!
This card is aimed at 1080p use, and it performs very well. It's 40-50% slower than the GTX 970, but it's half the price and would serve those wishing to play most newly released games on high setting.
The limited bandwidth (the amount of data that can flow at any given time) means that this card may not stay the entirety of its intended life cycle. The 2GB VRAM argument also something to consider, however this card will run out of graphical grunt before it saturates above 2GB VRAM in most cases.
These are things that must be considered as the GTX 970 may be a better buy with regards to longevity.
This card is extremely silent. At full load, the fans spin at 800rpm, which is virtually silent. Compared with my old R9 270, which ran at 2,200rpm, this feels like a much welcome addition. When idling, the card emits no noise and the fans do not spin. For those seeking absolute silence, look no further than this card.
Heat is a massive issue with graphics cards. My R9 290 used to reach 82c when at full load in my mini itx system. I'm happy to report this card in the same case reached only 63c while providing more graphical horsepower and making less noise.
-Limited bandwidth may hinder future games
-2GB Ram may be an issue (although unlikely)
- Card is very long
-Coil whine may be present
This card performs well for the price, but is exceptional in how little noise and heat it emits. If you're looking for the coolest and quiestest card available, look no further than the MSI GTX 960.
This is a solid mid-range card and performs better in games than my AMD R9 270. This is not just down to more graphical power, but because of the excellent driver support from Nvidia.
I've gone through a catalogue of some games that I couldn't max out with the 560 Ti, like the Assassins Creed games, Dishonured, Watchdogs (with the Worse Mod), Dying Light and GTA V. No surprises in saying that the 970 obliterated all those games with ease. It was a breeze installing the card in my NZXT Phantom full tower case. I just removed the old drivers in safe mode using DDU whilst the 560 was still installed, then I removed it and popped in the 970 and downloaded the drivers from the nvidia website (never from the CD) - done! The card runs very cool and so quiet, and hasn't exceeded 58 degrees during gaming. It's safe to say that I'm thoroughly satisfied with the GTX 970.
