probably not. the 970 was aimed at giving you high end 1080p gameplay. it'll probably manage 4k but won't be very playable

Stu stu stu stutter fest

I got a 980... Er what's the difference??

You're probably looking at a minimum of 2 GTX 980's to get decent framerates at 4K...
Interesting little comparison by TweakTown

Is this a good enough gfx to last me for the next 5 to 10 years.

I'm a casual gamer not really bothered about high end graphics, although it would be nice to play for example Attila Total War on high settings.

I have a custom build pc. cant really remember the specs off the top of my head.

i5 processor
16gb ram
500gb solid state hdd

ill find out what gfx and motherboard im using

I didnt think 980s performed much better than 970s in most scenarios?

is this better than the msi 970 gaming card?

Thanks.

The 970 is actually a 2k card but 4k would be really pushing it.

Oh they do... Believe me 1440p with a 980 is sensational. OCUK took back my GTX970 G1 after the whole RAMgate thing and gave me a very tempting offer on a 980.

Difference At 1080p was negligible, but 1440 is great.

The card should hold out for some time. Atleast 3 - 5+ years.

Seeing as the recent post for the GTX 780Ti had a similar price (£250) which is the better one to go for?

Annoying that this money still can't get you a 4K card, hoping for good things from this years GPU releases.

I've just ordered the msi 970 gaming version last night for the exact price. Quickly looking at the specs they seem very close or minisculey better in the gaming version. I'm no card expert tho.

-£10 for O2 Priority (spend £100 and get £10 off)
-£30.00 for GTA V (Steam pre-order is £39.99 so whatever you can get)

Great deal at around £235

I've opted for the OcUk reference 780Ti over this. Who's backing me?

Having read around I don't think there's a reasonably priced 4k card out there yet. Think I'll stick with my 7850 for a bit longer.

I can see the saving with it coming with gta v but Would I be right in thinking the msi gaming is better than the oc hardware wise ? Just want to make sure I havn't got to cancel my gaming card and get this instead.

780ti is better assuming your not maxing out the vram. i have one and games like dying light, mordor and advanced warfare stutter due to VRAM usage unless you dial some settings down. this is at 1440p mind so may not be an issue at 1080p, for now anyway

I have, and as far as I can tell the 780 can still be overclocked if you want to. However I still don't know the definitive answer !



It depends what you take as a "4k card", if you mean everything in 60fps or above at the highest settings, you'll be waiting a long time, considering the Titan X/Z Black + R9 295x2 both struggle to reach 60fps on most games at 4K and they cost £600-1000 each and have 12gb of vram. If you mean console FPS, this card reachs that just fine and excels it.

People saying that the 970 is a "1080p" card are incredibly stupid. Lets just say, I get a FLAT out 30fps on High settings at 4K resolution (Not ultra) while looking out at a massively open space on Far Cry 4 with lots of trees/shadows/animals, which is the same FPS as the PS4/Xbox one, it's pretty smooth at 30fps and playable as it doesn't slow down below 30 at all. You can reach 40-50fps if you put the quality down to low. Not to mention when you're in towns/rooms you can get 50-60fps on high settings anyway.

You can play many other games that aren't as graphic intensive at 4k with 60-200fps on Ultra settings such as WoW, Diablo 3, Counter Strike GO, etc.

So, for the question above, I believe this card can do GTA V at 4K resolution on lower settings (Maybe not Ultra but medium/high) at 30-60fps easily. I'm sure I'll post the results of that debate on here when the game is released.

They're both absolutely similar but I prefer the extra vram for playing in 1440p/4k. Also, the 970 draws 150-190w while gaming and the 780ti draws 225-300w while gaming. If you play a lot of games, you can save the money from your electricity bills!

If you're casual, wait another year or two. Cards will be head and shoulders above what we have now, more so than previous years

Probably should post this as a separate deal, but-

On a week only deal, it doesn't have a bundled game but then you might not want one !

Yes, as a download not hard copy. Missed that !

Will this be a good upgrade from a R280X Gaming? Just wondering if the 280X will cut it for GTAV on PC.

C'mon seriously what card can max out games at 1440p? anyone?

not worth the upgrade and yes your card will cut it

It would be a worthwhile change if you want to switch from AMD to NVidia (a change which seems fairly sensible considering the current state of mid-high end PC gaming).

In 5-10 years time we will have moved onto 4k (or even more) gaming at probably 144HZ or more. Then when/if that is the standard this card would look ancient.

780 ti is slightly better in benchmarks but 1gb less vram. Which you might regret not having if you go for that card, especially if you plan to keep the card for a few years. I would probably favor the 970 with the added 1gb of vram.

It'll run 4k just you really won't get playable fps, so I can imagine (opinion dependant that is).

What's different to this compared to the Twin Frozr?
