I have a GTX 970 but I literally only use my computer for this forum, ebay and  youtube. 

 

 

At this rate that card is going to last forever for me.

This is kind of interesting list.

 

I just swapped out my 970s for 2 OG titans as I wanted more vram and higher Cuda count for video work. Turns our even know a single 970 is about 5% faster than a single og titan. 2 og titans in sli is abour 15÷ faster than 2 970s. I pulled 15k in firestrike with the 970s now I'm getting 18k with the titans. Go figure.... 

 

Maybe the 6gb vram vs 3.5gb really make a difference in sli.

How about adding R9 Nano to "high end value cards" and R9 285 to "mid range value cards"?


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a mobile workstation/gaming laptop double WITH CRAPPY THERMAL PASTE THAT 1/2 THE CINEBENCH SCORE

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1700MHz 0.812V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 CL19 (timings are so loose, might as well have lower frequency).

R9 Fury should be a teir up and the Titan Z and R9---x2 should be a teir down

The 770 is as close as you'll get to 600 series. 770 is basically a 680 with faster core and mem

Lol I know where it all fits in the stack. 660 or less is the "no don't buy it's too old" and 670-680 is in the "budget 1080p/720p for demanding games" one

Moved Fury series, although the R9x2 and Titan Z cards are still competitive with the 1080 in a lot of games.
