Geek Time: GTX 970

Took advantage of the eBay 20% off tech stuff promo (selected retailers only) earlier and grabbed a new graphics card from the Kogan store. I ordered at a time when the Qantas Points Online Mall was running their double points promotion as well. *explodes from bargain*

It’s here! It’s here it’s here it’s here it’s here!

Gigabyte GTX 970: In the Case

Cable management? What’s that?

A long overdue upgrade! And cable management be damned! (Deja vu?)

Gigabyte GTX 970 vs EVGA GTX 470 Size

The new Gigabyte GTX 970 (top) is a few cm bigger than my old EVGA GTX 470 (bottom)

The new card is so quiet. Running the same two monitors, the 970 temperature under load is lower than my old 470 with fans spinning at a higher speed at idle. Seriously.

Time to geek! Things to stop caring about: friends, boyfriend, sleep, food, personal hygiene, work.
