Tempted to upgrade my MSI GTX 780 Gaming. Probably not worth the small jump in frames though, and potential fan noise:

I'm sure if he upgraded the 50p case fan and put the side panel back on there will be no more issue than any other card.

This is better than a 6GB 1060 but typically by only 10% but does use nearly twice the power.

This or an RX480 8GB ? (Power usage is not a factor for me just want the most powerful/'future proof' card of the two)

Personally went for the rx480 Amazon have the 4gb sapphire for the same price, arguably the 480 would be more future proof for dx12/Vulcan titles but there's not many about at the moment

480 will outperform it in Dx12/Vulcan titles, so if you want a long term card get the 480. Also at higher resolutions (>1080p) the 8GB of VRAM will most likely make the 480 pull ahead.

That's playing the waiting game though, there's only one significant title that uses Vulkan which is DOOM. Also the RX480 eventually runs out of performance against the best offerings from Nvidia. OK we're talking midrange here. It's difficult to say at the moment I say the GTX 1060 edges it unless you're really in to DOOM. I think the GTX1060 6GB is currently the best midrange gaming card, it's hard to predict the future, maybe in a year or two there will be many titles using the Vulkan API, however Vulkan still has a long way to go.

AMD Vega has the potential to shake things up at the high end, however that's a 2017 technology and Nvidia will come back with a revised architecture that will deal effectively with the whole scenario of Async Compute. Async Compute is more complicated than just saying a card supports or doesn't support Async Compute.

I have a prodigy mITX case, so I'd probably run into similar issues. Even with 2 120 spectre pros at the front and dual fan on my noctua, the case heat build up is immense. I didn't expect the 780 to sit at it's throttle temp 80c. Fired up Afterburner with a custom fan profile sorts it out at the expense of more noise, 72c at full tilt.

got the 980ti yesterday for £300 is it worth cancelling that for this card or is the extra £100 worth it for the Ti?

Does anyone have a good link that explains what the hell the good/latest Nvidia cards are? Because the numbering system absolutely bewilders me.

The 8GB 480 isn't £200 yet, though, it's priced against the 6GB 1060, which would be the better buy for most people.

Against a 4GB 480, the 980 is significantly ahead in the vast majority of games. Even in DX12 games on a 480, we only see Hitman pull slightly ahead of the 980 - the 980 is faster in other DX12 games, so it's a bit of a leap to guess that the 480 will be faster in future DX12 games.

£200 is a good price for a 980, but I'd worry about spending so much on a two-year-old architecture today - especially as another £30 gets you a 6GB 1060 with nearly double the performance-per-watt.

(A bit off-topic, but I wonder if deals like this would go as hot if they wrote £200 instead of £199.99, £300 instead of £299.99, etc? :p)

I know! I'm wondering if a room fan will help? Or only play during winter?

It is a little expensive for me,

Eek, and the TI is at £300 ish. If it was 220 or a little more, would be my trigger point.

Buy a 2nd hand one, plenty of people upgrading

I've been trying to find some comparisons for power consumption between the GTX 980 vs. RX 480 but finding it a tad bit difficult. Could be my Google fu is lacking. Would anyone know if there's much of a difference between the 2 or if the 980 is actually more efficient? I agree that based on benchmarks, the 980 does appear to be faster than the rx 480 and I reckon it'll likely stay that way for this generation.

With the prices like for like now, it's made it into a much tougher decision as to which card to buy.

This has the 480 ahead. It's barely 10 watts difference though.

Thanks for that! I'll likely just stick with the RX480 then, as even though the 980 is that bit faster, I doubt I'll see much real world benefits whereas a cheaper electricity bill will most certainly be a real world benefit

Wow, a bargain. I paid £225 for a 2nd hand 980oc about a month ago off ebay (couldn't find a decent priced 480 in stock).
You won't find any 980s as cheap as this on ebay!

Will this do dual 4k monitors with 2 in SLI?

Doesn't appear to be that much difference between this and my 970:

Same boost clock and only a slightly higher core clock.

does this card have a back plate?

Why do i feel like every graphics card deal posted here will get decent amount of heats... judging by what i've seen here,9 deals out of 10 are the case?

That is a good price. I would consider the GTX1070 instead, but it is of course quite a bit more expensive.

Will this do dual 4k monitors with 2 in SLI?


even one should do 4x 4k but not sure if there are any limitations when it comes to that resolution. Anyway, if you look at the back of the card is got 3xDisplayPorts and one hdmi2.0, each one should be able to drive a 4 k monitor/tv

Nvidia cards fail at DX12, see this one be terrible in the future. But the deal is the best there has been for Nvidia. Hot

People who recently bought a 970 are killing themselves. The silly people they are.

Higher shaders @ 2048 and texture fillrate144.3 .I think should be no less than 15% better. Also a proper 4gb vram even so I never found any problems at all with my gtx970 sli
no point to upgrade from gtx970, but prepared for the gtx 1070/1080 sli if prices will come decently down
