Default The gtx 970 is the best thing ever

I just bought the Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming and this card is CRAZY. 1540mhz boost core clock and just shy of 4000mhz on the boost mem clock. No overvolting needed. The card is super quiet and even at 100 percent fans I can barely hear it! Max at 80C running furmark but barely hits 65C during gaming. Literally the best graphics card ever made in my opinion (aside from the G1 980 I guess). AMD step your game up!

Edit: Just ran the valley benchmark. Never went over 60C and the card boosted to 1679mhz on the core!! WAAAAAAAAT

I've seen a few places saying the 970 & 980's are excellent..

I upgraded from a 670 and man oh man was this a big jump in performance. Not only that but it runs quieter, cooler, and uses less power even with my insane OC. I don't know how Nvidia did this but they must have used baby blood and angel tears.

I have a GTX 680 4GB and posted some test results somewhere around CR. It's not that bad.
