REVIEW IS ABOUT - EVGA GTX 970

I have been using this card for 3 years now , i have never felt so lucky to have a graphics card so good! it can still handle games like call of duty black ops 3 and battlefield 4 and crysis and many new and power hungry games @60+ Fps (100+ in black ops 3 as i last remember) .

This one especially is the highest clocked gtx 970 variant in the market. Have been the best graphics card until the launch of newer generation gtx 1000 series , but this is still a card to not mess with , it can still easily run all games released and upcoming at 60+fps @1080p (guaranteed)

I have been editing videos on Adobe After Fx and other softwares and have to say this card performs exceptionally well!

Pros:

1) SICK PERFORMANCE
2) BRILLIANT COOLING (is silent and maintains noise level)
3) LESS POWER CONSUMPTION
4) MOST POWERFUL GTX 970 variant in the market (can reach 980 levels easily)
5) It's 2016 and this card can still easily handle all games , now and all upcoming
games for upto 4 more years (at 1080p obviously)
6) It is compatible to be used with VR headsets (Virtual Reality)

Cons:

1) Bit more expensive than other gtx 970s in the market
2) Overclocking on this card is not recommended as it is already factory overclocked
3) It has 4Gb VRAM , but it is divided into 3.5Gb and and 0.5Gb (Applicable for all gtx 970s) , which may cause performance issues at points where you need to use more than 3.5Gb ram
4) 4Gb Ram is a deal breaker if u want to play games at 4k , but can be played with lowered graphic details at 4k
5) Is a big card so may need more space inside the cpu cabinet .
6) some variants do not have a backplate , which may be a problem as it makes it more fragile , but still not unusable , just a tad bit weaker!

Recommendation:

101% If u are looking for a gtx 970 this one is your perfect choice. Most Powerful Gtx 970 in the market! Can still play most new games at 100 FPS @1080p (required more than 30 / best experience at 60 / if you have a 144hz monitor 100 Fps Looks beautifully smooth! But only if you are happy to play that at the cost of 4k at lowered graphics !
