    Seems a fair price, but why a 980 and not the 980ti? A well priced, pre-watercooled 980ti could make the Fury X pretty redundant.

    Having said that, my Fury X still kick arse.

    "it tests the quality and overclockability of each GPU it sells, and promises to put the best units in the Waterforce; non-Waterforce cards, meanwhile, make do with lesser GPUs that offer less overclocking headroom."

    So in other words avoid Gigabyte unless you are buying a top binned card.

    And EVGA. And OCZ. In fact, is there a company out there that doesn't bin its silicon and put the best chips in the highest-margin products?
