GeForce GTX 970 EVGA FTW ACX 2.0 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 970 EVGA FTW ACX 2.0 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's high-end GeForce GTX 970 4GB created by EVGA. It features a new Cooling Solution and overclocking out of the box. Read below to know more.


Overclock Out of The Box
The Central Unit now runs at 1216MHz, instead of 1051MHz. Boost Clock is now of 1367MHz, instead of 1178MHz. Memory Clock was left untouched. This means the Card performs better when compared to the reference NVIDIA Graphics Card but should also consume slightly more power.


Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by EVGA's Dual Fan Cooling Solution. This means the card runs cooler under load.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 8% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 970 4GB.

I might plan on upgrading to this card from my gtx660.
Seeing from other comments I see I won't bottle neck, but I have a 550W psu. Would this be a problem?

Depending on the efficiency of the PSU, I would say your 550W will work. If the PSU has at least a 80+ bronze efficiency you should be fine. Although, EVGA has a 80+ Gold efficiency, 650W for $75 on amazon. It's in my pc build. It'll work perfectly.

Will my processor bottleneck this card at all? It probably shouldn't but I'm asking just in case. Also, is a 600W PSU enough?

Well According to the game debate article "Does CPU Performance Matter And Cause System Bottlenecks - Shadow of Mordor" CPU requirements on games are mainly so they can support lower end graphics cards. your Processor is a beast, so you'll be in the clear. as for the PSU I'm hoping 600 will be enough, because I just bought this card and am waiting for delivery, and 600W is all I got. It should be enough,and seeing as how when i bought the card I saved $40, if it isn't I might just get another psu. Fingers crossed though!

Im planning to buy this card. I just want to know if my processor going to bottleneck it or not. I just read somewhere that my AMD processors will hold back this card. And also is it going to be a good upgrade or not.
