GIGABYTE NVIDIA GTX970 G1 GAMING/vs/EVGA NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 970 FTW

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I need to know which "protrudes" or "is the best" in all categories Also can listen suggestions with the same price average.

 

I'm very confused guys, benchmarks are cracked and they said all kind of thinks if you go from one benchmark to another, maybe helps if someone put one of the "safe" and without mistakes benchmarks on the internet.

Gigabyte G1, generally cheaper, cooler and higher clocks. Plus it looks better to me.

The only difference is the company behind it, and maybe the binning.

Both are reference design, but the G1 may be binned (not too sure here)

ask @Lays since he bought those

because good cooling and sound level.

What about the fps average and graphics? the gigabyte stills better?

Because the EVGA one, from things I've heard, hasn't got the best build quality, unless someone can correct me on that. Also the Gigabyte one comes with a backplate pre-installed which helps keep your hands off the PCB if so happen to forget to de-static yourself. ;)

Why not? It's a great card. Avg is little more than other cards, I believe.

You'll only be getting a small FPS differential. It's really just up to personal preference.

Idk, but that doesn't really mean anything to me anyway.

wait for Lay's opinion since he went through the same issue, but chose the G1's, for reasons I'm not entirely sure of.

It's same GPU afterall, you'll get almost identical results. Maximum of 1% difference if you use both at their stock speeds.

I'm supposed to get my G1 on Thursday, I'll overclock it as far as I can on air vs my 290x lightning, and let you know how it performs @ 1440p if you like.

G1 comes with backplate, FTW charges extra if you wish to have backplate.

 

FTW has higher boost and base clock.

 

G1 is longer and it might not fit every case.

 

FTW has dual 6 pin connectors while G1 requires 6+8 pin connectors resulting in a better OC potential.

 

Both cards are blue-themed but G1's led can be changed with Red or Green if you wish to do so.

 

One might say that G1 has better I/O.

Yeah it's a bit flimsy. I mean it's not like it's gonna snap but the cooler is flimsy. I don't think there's anything between the PCB and the outside of the cooler besides the heatsink stuff. I noticed that when I picked up my card if I sqeezed gently I could see the outside of the cooler bend in a little. Compared to my old GTX 580 which was solid as a rock. Of course that was obviously a different design and the entire thing had a plastic cover all around it. Anyways I'm not sure if the newer cards are like this or if it's just this one. I've only owned 2 desktop GPUs my whole life so ya lol. I like the GTX 970 FTW but wish I may have gone for another card. It has the highest clocks out of all the 970s I've seen (even if just by a little) out of box. I do know EVGA has great customer service and warranty. Another thing to note is it has no back plate, fortunately I got a free one with a promotion around the time I bought it from EVGA. At the end of the day if I could go back 2 months when I bought this I would buy another card probably. I would most likely have bought a GTX 980 and got the Windforce one or Asus. This is not to say this is a bad card, I would recommend it. I like the look of some other cards more than this one which is pretty plain. Now that I am caring a bit more about looks I would have liked one of those with the Windforce logo or Asus branding and wish I would have gotten the 980 even tho it's not as good for price. Even tho I'm talking a bit of trash on my card it's really great and get which ever one you like. It's really good and pretty much smashes every game I play besides terribly optimized ones. I even bought Crysis 3 today and played on NVIDIA's "optimized" settings. It played without a single hitch or stutter and looked fantastic...

WOW! Okay, so it seems worse then I thought. I don't know why EVGA decided to reduce the build quality of their cards, but it is a shame they have. All of their GTX series cards right up until these newer GTX 900 series cards have had great build quality from what I've read and it's quite disappointing that they chose to cheap out on the build quality of their cars this time around. I know EVGA have excellent customer service, but unfortunately they decided not to have excellent build quality of they GPUs this time. Because of this fact I would strongly encourage people to look to the Gigabyte, MSI or ASUS GTX 900 series cards for much better build quality. I know that the EVGA cards are probably fine performance-wise, but I think build quality plays a big roll too in graphics cards to be honest.

I can't help but sense that you have a bit of buyers remorse about buying your EVGA GTX 900 series card, would I be correct in thinking that?

So for you the FTW is just little bit faster and the Gtx G1 is better in quality?

What I'm looking foor is performance in all categories, all kind of games, So for all of that the gtx 970 G1 oc is my best option?
