Pretty good if you have a $50 coupon like I will have in about 7 days... I'll just wait for another deal soon, since this card is sick!

Well, the MSI has a higher base and boost clock, though slight, and an arguably better cooler. However, that might not make much of a difference overall seeing as how all the 970s run pretty cool unless you're thinking of overclocking further. Performance will be very similar. Also, the Zotac is pretty compact, at around 8 inches. It isn't a mini sized 970, but quite good at fitting in smaller builds.

Word of warning though; while I can't speak to the MSI, I've had 3 of the Zotac 970s, and 2 had pretty noticeable coil whine.

Also, the Zotacs overclock quite well from my experience.

Bottom line, if you're getting the Zotac THAT much cheaper from Jet, go with that one, just beware there might be coil whine and that will, in most cases, not be a returnable (or RMA) offence according to many graphics card vendors.

Edit: Looked up some specs on overclocking. I got my Zotacs close to 1400. Lots of overclockers are saying the MSI hits 1500 easily. So when I say mine overclock well, that's not compared to the MSI, hah. Hope all this helps!

will I notice a difference from an MSI 760 oc edition 2gb? I'm thinking of switching to i7-4790k from an amd fx 8350 and wondering if I should go get a 980 instead of the i7. or maybe sli the 970 with the 760.

Is this eligible for the current $20 rebate since it's sold by Newegg?
