Probably going to go with a 960 and another set of RAM sticks identical to the ones I got to boost my RAM to 16GB.

This isn't a GeForce card, but does anyone have experience with the Radeon R9 series cards? It has twice the memory of a 970 or 980 (8GB) and currently Newegg is selling it for about thirty bucks cheaper than a standard 970. It's GDDR5.

Hi,
Interesting gpu but it does say on the system spec's a 600w or greater psu is required
Looks like a radeon version of the titan ?

The PSU isn't the concern for me, I can easily nab a higher watt one. But assuming this card works wonders, it means you don't need to leave a thousand dollar dent in your wallet for 8+GB VRAM.

How much of a performance drop would that cause?

Hi,
Does it really matter it's 700.us cheaper
It's an oc gpu so I'm sure you can increase it with a gpu tweak program specific to radeon gpu's.

The card might have a software disk with one on it ?
