The 980ti is a monster card. right now amazon has it for $499 which is an amazing price.

but evga.com has it for $479 which is even better, on top of that, they have a $50 mail in rebate. bringing the card to $429.

you cannot beat the performance of the 980 ti for under $450!!!

as slackruddie mentioned the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti CLASSIFIED GAMING ACX 2.0+ is going for the same price:

its making me 2nd guess waiting for the 1080 hybrid. going back to a 980ti sli setup for only $429 is a bargain (i currently have a 980ti hybrid).

realistically the 1080 hybrid will be near $800 after tax/shipping. 2 980ti's for a bit more then that is crazy, though not everyone likes SLI setups.

It's an amazing card at that price for those who will take advantage of heavy overclocking. Otherwise, for a very similar price people may be better off buying the 1070.

This would be superior to a 1070 given the cooler. If the 1070 was actually selling for msrp then I this would not be that hot.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti CLASSIFIED GAMING ACX 2.0+ is the same price and same rebate.

Its a better card with higher OC potential because it has better binned chips.

1190 / 1291 base and boost clock.

Not as good as the Kingpin cards but I don't know if they even made a Kingpin 980 Ti.

If I was buying this is the one I'd get not the water cooled reference card.

EDIT: Yeah they made a Kingpin 980 Ti, this is the beast of all 980's.

i think it really depends what you are going for.

i like cool temps and SLI. running the 980ti hybrid SLI setup was pretty smooth. OC'd well and didnt get hot! i sold one in anticipation for the 1080 hybrid, still waiting to see what i should do.

but if i wanted one monster card, and didnt care about heat or noise the other cards would be good choices as well.

Who are those idiots anyway?

Personally, I have a single 980 Ti and I would love to have the money to get a 2nd one for SLI setup.

I have 2 of these and I would probably wait for 1080 hybrid or 1080Ti if they make one.

Its not that they are bad cards, but you gain significant features, like DP 1.4 vs 1.2 and lower power use, pcie 8pin vs pcie 8pin + 6pin. I know the newer card is more expensive, but you will save money over time with lower power gaming all the time (it adds up) Not just in power consumed by your PC, but AC bills if you live in a warm area. If you are in a cool area, then go for the space heater. Secondly, not all games play well with SLi. Like BLOps3, you lose several filter options running in SLI. Some games wont even use the second card. And unless you have a 2011 board, then you have to share PCIe lanes too.

Really only suggest buying this card if you have a 980Ti and want to SLI because its more powerful than just 1x1080

I don't know why anyone would get this for anything other than SLI. Yes, if you win the silicon lottery, a 980 TI overclocks by 25% and can beat a 1070. But a 1070 easily overclocks by over 10% and up to 13-14%. A lot of FE 1070's hit 2100, most 1070's can hit over 2000. The difference in binning is maybe 50-100 mhz so 2000 to 2100.

Not a deal until the 980 TI is like $350.

According to Tom's Hardware, the difference in average graphics card power consumption during gaming between the 980 Ti and the 1080 is about equivalent to the wattage of an incandescent light bulb (around 60W). The difference at idle is about 3W. Given that we're probably looking at a retail price of at least $700 for either of those cards, it would take at least 4 years to make up the difference if you play games 24/7. At a more reasonable amount for an enthusiast, say 6 hours per day, it would take 16 years.

Edit: Based on the average kWh cost of 12 cents

yeah but if sli the double that. then add in ac cooling costs for extra heat generates. plus PSU is not 100% efficient

GTX1070 is better for the money. Pick that up instead of this one.

I wouldn't even consider this over the 1070 unless it was <$350
