Have: 980 GTX Kingpin

My buddy is selling his 980ti Kingpin for a decent price - 260 to me. 

 

Yay or Nay?

 

Currently playing BF5 at 1440p on high. Thoughts?

If you can find used 1070ti for around that price, id go for that instead. The kingpin cards are nice, but the difference from the 980 to 980ti doesn't really justify 260 IMO.

 it's a decent upgrade for sure, you could probably sell your 980 for $200, but I personally wouldn't do it, you could always wait for a decently priced RTX card

If you're into overclocking, grab that kingpin. It's gorgeous and has an incredible heat sink.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I would. I like testing the of locked vs unlocked. I got Titan blacks after my regular titans. Got rid of my 980’s just buy more older cards. It’s good reference when buying new stuff, shelling out that higher price for a better version.
