I just wanted to get some of your opinions on GTX 970 and GTX980. I am planning to buy 1 of them. Which one would you recommend and why? I mainly play CS:GO so yeah nothing like Battlefield or Far Cry.

Thanks heaps!

personally I don't see a massive difference between the GTX970 and 980, considering the price gap...

I was in the same situation.. got a 980ti instead xD

Why not go AMD they are cheaper (depending on the 970 you go) and performance wise they are both on par with each other.

But as for the question you asked the 980 complete overkill for 1080p , 970 had issues with Cs:Go don't know if they have been fixed

for each price point i usually recommend ; 750ti < 380 < 390 < 980ti

unless there are particular reasons for going outside of these, for instance if you owned a small power supply id suggest 960 > 380

GTX 970 only has 3.5gb of memory and runs into problems after using more than 3gb. Don't buy one.

Get a 960 or a 980/ti.

I use a 960 with an i5 4690 and get fps in the 250s-300 on high setting.

Best value for money is the 960 but I had an issue with frame drops, so I took it back and upgraded to the 970. 980 Is great if you have the cash, but really all of these cards are over kill for CSGO. Should be asking more specific questions.

Goes to doctor asking about lump on neck, gets told it's a tumor, refuses to see specialist claiming that the pharmaceutical complex is trying to squeeze money out of him and he can fix it with cannibus oil.

One more for the trash heap darkey, don't worry about it too much. My guess is he got sold it by a friend or local shop. I hope it wasn't second hand.
