This is a hell of a deal! Phantom pain code can be sold on for $35 after ebay fees, brings the total down to around $253

Had mine since they came out. Solid performer no issues OC leaves more to be desired because of locked voltage.

Requesting advice:

Would like to upgrade my 560 Ti, but for me to upgrade to this card I would also need to change my motherboard and CPU. I can either buy this now and upgrade CPU/mobo or wait for about another 9 months for whatever comes out next (not sure if anything is coming out that's worth it hence me asking).

What would you guys do? The games I do play frequently, play well on the 560 Ti, but its preventing me now from playing some new games like GTA V.

I'm in the same boat, I gotta 6870 myself. It was a good card but it really is starting to show its age in newer games. I was originally going to upgrade to a 290x but the heat/noise associated with it just killed it for me. The 970 seems like the best balanced midrange card...I think I might pull the trigger on it at this price nod

How far are you able to overclock it with the locked voltage?

In the office ATM can let you know when im home. Its still a decent OC but you can tell the card has more.

Just bought a Xeon i7 equivalent to replace my i3. I will be upgrading my GPU from a 650 Ti 1GB.

I've always been an Nvidia fan since every time I've tried an AMD card there has been driver instability. Still, AMD's DX12 performance has me questioning.

Anyway, I don't mind waiting until Black Friday. Do you all think there will be better deals than this?

It's a little hard to understand why you would need to change your CPU and motherboard to upgrade from a 560 Ti to a 970. Are you afraid your CPU will bottleneck it?

Aside from that, it all depends on how badly you want to play some new games, and how much $290 matters to your budget. If you have to build a system around it, Sky Lake is out, but it probably makes more sense to build the system around November when Black Friday prices and far better supply will make shopping Sky Lake a much more pleasant experience.

Regarding the cards in 9 months, most likely we'll start seeing nVidia's Pascal cards by then, which have been stated to be 10x maxwell in terms of compute power. I haven't heard anything specific about how they will compare in terms of gaming performance, but I'm fully prepared to be amazed.

Might be worth it if you want a more efficient card. I'm currently building a computer for a friend where I have a Corsair H80i attached to this, power limits down to 50%, card overclocked +10%, VRAM overclocked a couple ticks and this thing runs at 50deg C. Can't get it past 60deg C unless I run the doughnut stress test bouncebouncebounce

Have a 2-gb, GTX 760 - worth upgrading? There are some newer games I want to try out e.g. Witcher 3, Arkham Knight (though who knows if the latter will ever work on PC!)

Isn't that pretty much the norm everywhere unless you get a in-store warranty? After 30-days you usually have to take it up with the manufacturer
