Used gtx 970

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I found a 6 month old zotac amp omega on my local kijiji...he's asking 300$ canadian...I'm thinking it's worth it with the 4gb 480s costing the same after tax. 

 

What at do you guys think? Pull the trigger or let er go.

Wait a bit and get an 8GB 480 for that price.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

pass on this. save up and get a 1060 when they launch. all geforce 10 series cards are superior to thier 900s series cards while costing much less. so you are screwing yourself over if you get a 900 series now.

lolno. Grab a used R9 290X or GTX 780Ti. Those cards will serve you better.

I guess I should mention that 8gb 480s go for 340+tax...so pretty close to 400$, and don't they have pretty well the same benchmarks

 

 1060s are probably going to cost even more than that.
