  1. Congratulations on the monitor. I've got the same one, and it's great. If I were you, I'd wait for the 1080 Ti, and put the sale of your 970 towards the cost.
  2. Are you sure that overclock is stable?
  3. RAM speed really does matter for gaming, nowadays. See Digital Foundry's work on this, which is pretty conclusive.
  4. That will depend on your CPU. In my case, it's concern about voltages that is my limiting factor, rather than temperature.
  5. Not sure how this is an answer to my question. Simple process? And how expensive would such a cooler be?
  6. Yeah, that's the sort of cooler I'd like. But then I got this card because it was a bargain, so there's that. Maybe I'll look into it at some point. I've actually developed another solution for the sound: my headset.
  7. While we're on the subject, how difficult is it to water cool a GPU? For a complete novice, by the way.
  8. I'd be surprised if that were true, given one's Asus and the other Gigabyte. But they're certainly similar. Oh, I don't know. My cooler is pretty dreadful. In my new case I've managed to tame it from "jet engine" to "turbo prop" levels of noise, though.
  9. My Gigabyte Turbo OC would like a word with you.
  10. Not sure if this is good, bad or ugly. Also not sure why it thinks I'm running Windows 8.
  11. I can lend you a couple of my cores, if you like. For a million dollars.
  12. I don't have a problem setting an FPS cap using G Sync, either. I also use RTSS.
  13. I'd suggest going for the single most powerful card you can afford, where possible. So I voted for the 1080. There's the option to SLI with it down the line, of course, though I'm not sure I would. As for brands, any will do.
  14. *shrug Whatever, man.
