    Watercooled GTX980ti

    Gigabyte just launched its new Watercooled GTX980ti, bringing a fully enclosed PCB, allowing for the VRAM to be cooled with water as well. The Watercooled 980ti looks to be one of the most powerful single VGAs on the market now, what do you guys think of Watercooled PCBs? Video Review of the Watercooled GTX980ti Specifications: Core clock of 1216MHz boost to 1317MHz 384 bit Mem Bus 6GB of VRAM Features: PCB Coating to promote durability and lifespan RGB LED Illumination
  2. So my Oculus Rift arrived with Touch controllers and my current PC isn't exactly a power house, I don't want to spend $$$ on it because I've spent so much money on other tech it's hard to keep justifying it to the wife. Current system: Core i5-750 OC 50% at 4Ghz (That is Haswell generation there) ASUS P7P55d-E Pro (16 lanes of PCIe 2.0, USB 3.0 and crappy SATA 3 implementation that runs at SATA 2 speeds) 8GB RAM (2 x 4GB @ 1600) 512GB SSD (Thanks to Atomic / PC Authority) Corsair 500W PSU Crossfire 2 x 7950's (so many problems with Crossfire) So I don't want to spend too much to get my Oculus Rift to work with games like Elite: Dangerous, so I was thinking of not upgrading the motherboard and CPU, which I know will hamper any new GPU I purchase but it would cost a lot and I don't think the price to performance is worth it, agree or disagree? I want an AMD GPU because I like to support the underdogs. So upgrade existing system to: 16GB RAM (4 x 4GB @ 1600) AMD VEGA 56 8GB or AMD RX 580 8GB Would that allow me to play Oculus Rift well enough to enjoy it and not to puke? Considering the CPU would limit the GPU, I was thinking of undervolting and underclocking the GPU a touch to dramatically reduce power consumption and heat generation, without affecting fps (due to CPU limitation). However VEGA architecture is supposed to offer improvements in optical recognition, which is something I am trying to play with in the past few months and failing miserably at.
  3. As the title says, what's most important to you guys in terms of graphics cards? -Value, efficiency, performance, performance per dollar, future-ready, etc Let me know :)
  4. Hey Guys, We here at Gigabyte/ Aorus are excited to be bringing you the newest flagship card from our line-up: The Aorus GTX1080ti Xtreme Edition Featuring our patented stack fan cooler, the Aorus GTX1080ti Xtreme Edition ensures that the entire PCB is cooled, with no space on the card left uncovered. With our Gigabyte Ultra Durable guarantee and our aerospace grade PCB coating, your card is made to last. Powered by the amazingly powerful pascal architecture from Nvidia, the Aorus GTX1080ti Xtreme Edition brings unprecedented performance without compromises, and also featuring full RGB customisability on all sides of the card (Backplate Aorus logo, Aorus logo on the side, and RGB X on the cooler). In addition to the 3 fan cooling solution, the Aorus GTX1080ti Xtreme Edition also comes with a copper backplate that helps to dissipate heat from the rear of the GPU, utilizing extra surface area through grooved fins on the copper backplate. This leads to lower fan speeds at the same operating temperature, or lower temperatures at the same fan speeds, increasing overall performance! In addition, we are proud to have an Xtremely comprehensive I/O on the card, including upto 3 HDMI displays (With one extra HDMI port at the front of the card), 3 DP displays, and still including one DVI-D output. And featuring 4 years of warranty when registered at the AORUS website, you can rest easy knowing your card is covered. We hope you're as excited as we are for this new top-of-the-line graphics card
  5. Hey guys, First of all, apologies if this post is in the wrong space. I was thinking the other day, now that the 10 series (1050, 1060, 1070 & 1080) NVIDIA graphics cards are out, the previous generation are dropping in price. At the moment, I'm currently running with an MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming. Most games I get nice performance but I'm starting to see the limitations of the card on newer graphics intensive games that are coming out. I'm not ready to make a full upgrade to say a 1070 but was thinking if I found another of the same 970 card, it might be worth picking up at a reduced price. What are people's thoughts on this. Is it worth running two of these cards in SLI? Will this really give me much of a worthwhile graphics improvement? My knowledge is a little sparce on this topic so any info would be of help. Thanks.
  6. Hi, I was hoping that i might be able to get some advice. I know enough to be dangerous when it comes to building computers, but i'm realistic and not 100% in all my decisions. I am building a gaming machine, more for my son than for me, I'll use the computer for some photoshop/after affects and some video editing. What i am wondering is which graphics card will be a good all rounder, but leans towards games, old and new. I am looking at about $500 or less would be preferred. Here are the specs so far. ASRock Z170 Pro4/D3 LGA1151 ATX Motherboard Intel Core i5 6500 Quad Core LGA 1151 3.2 GHz CPU Processor Antec GX900 Punisher ATX Gaming Mid-Tower Case 8 gig ripjaws 12800cl Samsung 250g ssd 1tb HD I was tossing up between AMDs rx 480 or the r9 fury which seems to be a pretty good performer for the price but older tech or the r9 390 Do you think I would notice the difference in games between these cards?? Also, is there much difference between brands? Cheers,
  7. Hi knowledgeable people of the PC world, I need some advice. So I've had my gaming PC for about 2 years now, and I'm beginning to notice my framerates to be not up where I want them to be with some newer games. My current graphics card is a Gigabyte Radeon HD7870 2GB. Along with wanting to run at the higher graphics settings on new games, I do a fair bit of modding in Skyrim and am noticing that it really starts to struggle at times. I've played with overclocking but without much noticeable improvement. So, time to upgrade I figure! I'm looking at a GeForce GTX 970, seems to be the best in my price range. Okay, questions. What sort of improvement can I expect going from my old card to new one? Will it be able to run all my pretty Skyrim mods and most newer games on ultra? Is there any issue with me swapping out my AMD card for NVIDIA? There are a few different versions of the GTX 970, such as GTX 970 G1 Gaming (Gigabyte) and GTX 970 Gaming (MSI). Are there any differences or are these just the different names given by the different named brands? My system specs are: CPU - Intel Core i5 3570 3.4GHz RAM - Kingston DDR3 8GB OS - Windows 7.1 Storage - 1 x 128GB Sandisk SSD, 2 x 2TB Toshiba HDD Power Supply - Corsair 600W Sorry for long post! Any help or advice would be awesome! Cheers!
  8. Hi all, I'm upgrading my graphics card and have a large number of cards to choose from in my price range. These cards all differ in price by no more than around $50, so it's down to specifications and real-word performance to make the decision. Does anyone have input as to which card may be the best choice (or ones to avoid)? 3G GTX 780 Ti Gigabyte-GHz 4G GTX 970 Gainward (3354) 4G GTX 970 Gainward-Phantom (3361) 4G GTX 970 Asus Turbo-OC 4G GTX 970 Asus STRIX OC 4G GTX 970 Gigabyte OC (WF3OC) 4G GTX 970 G1 Gaming 4G GTX 970 Twin Turbo OC Thanks, jt
