    This thing is a monster! I have it overclocked to 1540 boost and it tears apart games even at 1440p I get 60 fps on a lot of games! love this card and looks gorgeous in my rig while keeping cool and whisper quiet as one of the fans stays off until it is under load and even then I hardly hear it. Planning on a second one to sli for 4k.

    Graphics card is always a tough decision, especially if, like me, you are watching the bang for buck and have no qualms with buying used.

    I bought this model of GTX 970 because it fits inside my case (although most versions do), was £20-30 cheaper than most all of the ASUS or MSI models, is known to be quiet and is a good performer with a nice factory overclock. I have docked a star because unlike the ASUS and MSI versions the fans on this always run, and late at night when all is quiet it's the fan on this that I can just about make out, even just browsing the web, so that's a pity. I think that in hindsight I should have paid a little more for a model that has a totally silent profile below 60C. Other than that, it runs perfectly.

    Why not a GTX 960? I want to play Doom, Witcher 3, and 2016 Christmas releases, and on that card at 1200p I'd have to turn down some settings. On a GTX 970, I won't. The GTX 960 can be had for around £120 though, and so should be seriously considered against your needs.

    Why not an RX 480? It's £50 more in the UK for the 4GB AMD card with stock cooler. Benchmarks in older games clearly favour the 970, and I'm going to be mainly catching up on games for the first 6 months or so, and the fan on the stock card is just too loud. Yes, the RX 480 performs much better in DX12, and in most newer DX11 or Vulcan games, but I won't compromise on noise, and will be looking for a card upgrade in 9-12 months anyway. I don't need ironclad future-proofing.

    Why not a GTX 1060? Very similar performance in older titles, costs more than £50 more than this card, has only just released and limited stock means who knows if I could snap one up or just be sat using Intel on-board graphics for a month?

    Why not a GTX 1070? Tempting, and I will seriously consider it if/when I buy an HTC Vive. At the moment, the GTX 970 will play every game, maxed out, on my monitor. Why pay twice the price for nothing more?

    Silent, over clocks like a champion, runs everything I throw at it in 2560x1080. Fantastic card and looks sick as hell. Comes with a nice solid backplate and a custom black PCB. All this makes the card a joy to own.

    It was originally mine, sold it for 300 about 4months ago, the guy upgraded to a 1070 so i got it back for 150, didnt want to spend hundreds on a new card. Its a great card then and is now.
