    Need to upgrade my GPU

    Any recommendations, I personally want to stay with Nvidea and was considering getting a GTX 980. I want to be able to run the newest coming games at their maximum quality and not have to upgrade for at least three years. Would my PC also be able to handle the GTX 980 with 870 watts of power?

    My Specs:
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz (Overclocked to 3.8GHz)
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 545(x2 SLI)
    8gb of RAM.
    870 Watts of power.

    +1 / back this up. Save money especially if getting a 980. I have a 980 and it's been flawless, but my CPU and other shit is also at a higher standard. Invested so I dont need to upgrade for a good 4-5 years.

    870w is way more than you need for GTX 980,if you can afford it go for it,but other options are R9 290x(much cheaper with similar performance) or even R9 390x(should be cheaper with bit better performance)

    78% I think it was. Either way, you solder this point on the back and you unlock the voltages. Thus you can clock really fucking high and it is completely stable on air.
