    Question What GPU would be a good upgrade to go to from a 980Ti for under $900 USD?

    I am finally ready to put my old 980Ti to rest. I want to spend under $900 if i can. I have my eyes on a 4070Ti or an RX 7900 but benchmarks and riviews show the 4070ti being much better. I also looked at some 30 series cards but they are all the same or more expensive than the new 4070Ti so i...

    Question Does anyone have this particular 980TI? I just bought one still sealed.

    This is the card: https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N98TWF3OC-6GD#ov From my point of view, it just looks like a crapier G1. I've looked up the card, and the most I can find is a couple of reviews. I'm very curious about the OC potential though. Thanks in advance.
