    I got the mso too!

    Tough one between the gigabyte and that as I 100% of the time always choose the gigabyte cards. Just loved the look of the red and black on these cards, will go with my new system in building just nicelly!

    I originally had the 980 in the basket but the price difference and performance between the two doesn't cut it for me. The 970s are truly the sweet spot on these new cards!

    Got an MSI on order as well, if it's not enough grunt for future engines like UE4 i guess i could always get a 2nd one.

    Ah, I know, I've been holding off on a full system upgrade for a while. I've just recently moved from an AM2+ platform to Z97. =D

    Held off on the GPU upgrade once I heard about these new cards. Glad I did!

    I love building a computer last week, picking up an R280X on an auction site and it was faulty. All the reason I bought a nice tasty

    I loved my MSI 460 Cyclone

    I'm after the Gigabyte G1 to replace my Gigabyte 760 Windforce, the temptation is so strong I think I'm going to put my 760 for sale right now
