Well I do have choices here.

Freesync with an AMD GPU = cheaper

vs

G-Sync with a NVIDIA GPU = expensive.

Yep I'm still pondering it
I keep thinking coil whine......
Badass clocks though
That one would tie me over for quite a while

I'm back with the evga 980 hybrid on my x99 :/
Darn asus 980 had issues with AOC monitor couldn't go 144Hz with it AOC does have a weird color profile CCI I believe that I had to get rid of just so photo editing programs.... wouldn't have a yellow or another weird background color
Very strange
ASUS 980 is now on my Acer relocation board works good though running at 144Hz on my asus monitor
