    He was referring to the 980 price.

    I think the 970 superb value myself.

    Lol, no worries.

    Even inflation accounts for some of the price increase anyway, £300 in 2006 was the equivalent of £390 today going by an historic inflation calculator I found.

    Actually, going by the £350 he said for top end would be £456 today so even the 980 price is bang on the same taking into account inflation.

    Yeah but that was top end, the £450 you spend today for this is still far from top end and still wont be enough for high resolutions. Top end now it is more like £2200, and even the less crazy 295x2 which still only gets 30 something fps with 4k, would be about £700+. Top end now is huge money, and even my resolution needs a lot.

    I hoped the 970 would be about as fast as the 980, and the 980 was faster.

    I wouldn't call running Crysis 3 @1024x768 on medium setting top end when compared with today's top end of 4k.

    Don't forget the IT Industry calculates everything in USD, £456 in 2006 would have been $848 while today $848 would be £523.

    There is something to be said for sticking with a 24" screen at 1080p. Would save good money on the graphics card. I got a really good deal on an ultra widescreen and have enjoyed it for several months already, but most of the games I used to play I just can't run anymore unless I drop the settings to fugly levels. I really need to get a GTX 980 to let me play Arma and stuff again. I don't even think the 970 would be enough.

    I feel better about these cards when I look at the overclocking. The 970 can reach 980 speeds with no problem, not even a voltage increase, and still remains cool and quiet. And the 980 can get really fast.
