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

Overview
GeForce GTX 970 EVGA Superclocked 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 1165MHz, instead of 1051MHz. Boost Clock is now of 1317MHz, 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The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by EVGA's Dual Fan Cooling Solution.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 6% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 970 4GB.

I love this card! I admit the build quality is not as good as other cards I have owned. But those other cards were not near as fast. I would love to see HIS and Sapphire and PowerColor start making Nvidia cards. Especially HIS.

Yes that would work fine. What are you using this rig for? xeon CPU seem unusual for a gaming rig. If it is a workstation setup, there might be a better choice than this gpu.

Thinking of getting this card, I have an:


i7 3770k 3.5Ghz
16gb Crucial Ballistix RAM
Currently a 660 Ti (970 will replace it)
Coolermaster 500w PSU
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Motherboard
Cooler Master HAF Case


Would I be good to go if I bought it? I was a little worried over the PSU

You should be safe with a 500w PSU unless you plan on overclocking or using sli.

Will also work with OC without problems. The CPU takes just -20W more with a normal OC (-4,4GHz). ;)

Picked up one of these for my new build coming in Monday. Decided in this over the 980 simply because its half the price for still ridiculous performance, plus if I ever need too I'll just grab another 970. Really can't wait for 60fps gamin
