980ti references brand difference

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys i'm planning to upgrade to a 980ti an i'm leaning towards getting a reference cuz it's much cheaper and as far as i know i don't even need to bother with waterblock compatibility. Just wanted to know if there are any differences between references brands like evga,gigabyte,asus,msi,zotac and etc.

Get the one with the longest warranty. 

Oh i see i saw a store here in my country that is selling the gigabyte brand gtx 980ti at 27250PHP(577USD) and the next cheapest is the zotac brand at 31500PHP(667USD). So in terms of specs all are just for the reference cards?

Oh i see. So it's just comes down to preferences and maybe which one is cheaper?

Best check em' out, they may have the same cooler but they don't all have they same specs.

 

Some have higher stock clocks, some have lower maximum resolutions, inputs, etc.

If EVGA is in your budget then go with them. They are known for having great warranty and support.
