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

Overview
GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC 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 1190MHz, instead of 1051MHz. Boost Clock is now of 1342MHz, 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The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by EVGA's Dual Fan Cooling Solution.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 7% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 970 4GB.

Wrong direction. No, your CPU won't be bottlenecked, the relationship between CPU and GPU doesn't work like that. Think the other way - the CPU bottlenecking the GPU. No matter what CPU you have, there will always be some kind of bottleneck - the idea is to make it as small as possible. With an i5-4460, I doubt you'll have any noticeable bottleneck, pairing it with a 970.

Thanks for the response! I ended up getting the Gigabyte model of this card and am very pleased with the performance I'm getting. Also I just noticed we have a very similar build. :)

Since you've owned a few 900 series cards now… :P
Which 970 would you recommend? MSI, Gigabyte G1 or this?
