Hi

Thanks.

no, waste of time and money for VERY little performance.

For performance, no.  The 980s are only equal to, and in some cases slightly slower than, the 780 TIs.  For power consumption maybe, but it hardly seems worth the cost.  There may be a slight noise difference, but the Windforce cards are generally pretty quiet anyway so it won't be a big difference.

At sub 4K resolutions, I think it would be unnecessary. I'm an SLI 780ti user, and am going to wait for the next generation to upgrade.

It appears that you have a 4K monitor. I'm not sure but the extra VRAM may be useful.

@REDARROWS1 No point really. If I understand correctly, the 980 was supposed to replace the 780, rather than the 780Ti. Also you should update your sig, it only got two of them listed...

just done it cos I saw that.

When talking about that kind of money logic isn't relevant anymore. Ask yourself this and only this question: Do you want to replace your GPU's?

Nah man come back after 2 - 3 years, then it will make sense

The most common result of insufficient wattage is a paperweight that looks like a PC

If increasing your graphic power is your priority, I say a big yes. The others people just repeat what they hear but when you overclock the GTX 980 by any way, it goes well beyond the performance of the GTX 780 Ti. And since it's a Maxwell GPU, it consume way less power. And yeah, the 4 GB VRAM should be useful too over the only option GTX 780 Ti had, as 3 GB VRAM.

What about your CPU temperature ? The Corsair H105 gives way better cooling performance then H100i because of the 40% thicker radiator. Only downside to H105 is there is no fan controllers built-in like the H100i.
