FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

It's a great deal, Low power consumption and performance on par of a 780 at only $350!

Watchdogs, Dead Rising 3, DayZ, Metro 2033 and Last Light Redux.


I am benchmarking them through the other graphically demanding games though

I'm picking up a 2560x1440 IPS and going for a 96 or 120hz overclock soon, wondering if i can enjoy the lowered power consumption of the 970 or if i'll have to go 980 for the framerate.

I would suggest going with the 980. It has a ridiculously low power consumption anyways.

Oh man. Do I want to upgrade from my GTX 770 to the 970...I mean, I want to but would it be worth it.

Do you have the 4gb version of the 770? One of the big pushes I had to get 900 series was because I only had 2gb. That is not enough to play watchdogs at ultra textures.

Now I play watchdogs, ultra textures, 60-100 fps

Seriously? That's impressive. And I am playing at 2K. The 770 is fine for that but...I'd rather get 60+ in 2k if I can.

What's harder to run, 2560x1440@120fps or 3840x2160@60?

My original plan was to get the IPS 27", but i just found out the Vizio 4K 50" for $999 with HDMI2 launched, which sounds pretty tempting.

Aoc is about to release a 28" 4k gsync monitor. $800
http://techgage.com/news/the-g-sync-rollout-continues-acer-and-aoc-get-in-on-the-action/


If you're running a nvidia card you should really check out gsync. It smooths out frame rate fluctuations making lower fps look smooth. You're going to need a sli setup though to get close to 60fps at 4k, you may also want to hold off on buying a 980 until the 8gb versions come out at the end of the year.

I'm gaming on a Asus 1080p 144hz Gsync monitor.

Apparently the 970 can easily be overclocked to get 980 performance. Hmm.

Can you guys go sign this, please

Don't want to try and find a new trusted brand because of a horrific new logo and 'GAMINGEXTREME' bullshit.
