In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF WaterCooled 6GB Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition.

The GTX 980 Ti has a 203 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 980 Ti. This results in the GTX 980 Ti providing 35.7 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 980 Ti has a 203 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 980 Ti providing 19.5 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 980 Ti was released less than a year after the GTX 980 Ti, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF WaterCooled 6GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF WaterCooled 6GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition are the same, which means the GTX 980 Ti and the GTX 980 Ti have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF WaterCooled 6GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition have 2816 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 980 Ti has 35.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 19.5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the has GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Overall, the GTX 980 Ti has significantly better performance.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti Galax HOF WaterCooled 6GB Edition requires 250 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 980 Ti and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 980 Ti. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.
