  1. U WILL NOT FACE ANY PROBLEMS WITH THAT PSU.. U CAN EVEN SLI ON 750W PSU..
  2. You will be fine sir. All of your parts are compatible, and you will have a lot of upgrade room in the future.
  3. Best answer
    A GeForce GTX 970 needs 28 AMPS on the 12v+ rail and a 500 watt power supply with 2 - PCIE power connections.

    Your SEASONIC EXCEEDS the REQUIREMENTS.
  4. ok fyn Ty all ! i thought its an overkill ! nt worth but after such cmmnts i m hppy !
  5. Enjoy the card.
  6. ditch the 970 and you'll be fine.
  7. Don't know if troll much or no troll much

    what u mean by ditch 970 ? is it not gud enuf ??
    by bracket is 30000 INR suggest best possible Graphic card !
  9. Am also going for gtx 970 msi
  10. Acc. to Benchmarks Which Manufacturer has best cooling for Gtx 970 ?
  11. Msi has higher clock than asus strix
  12. The coolest 970 is the Gigabyte Windfore 3X 970. But be careful, It might not fit your case.

    My Case is Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus Mid Tower ! Would it fit in that ?
  14. it should be fine
  15. the 970 has a lawsuit for false advertisement. specs are wrong. not a 4k card. if you want it for 4k look elsewhere.
  16. So? Who said he is going 4k?


    IDC if it was the biggest law suit in tech, the 970 is still a good card :P.
    But i agree. 4k, another card would be better

    good. i don't think good is worth ~350.00 USD.
  18. I still think it is. It was a reason AMD's card prices went down. I do hope nVidia don't make this mistake again. :)

    The Twin Frozr is my pick for GTX 970, the vast majority of the time.
  20. It is good, but I prefer the SSC from EVGA. :P

    Go to 3:50~
  21. hi guys my monitor is 1080 p not looking for 4k
    plus 970 is the only one fitting my budget of 29000 and 3.5gb of vRAM is gud enuf
    only Gigabyte Msi and Asus is available in india !! no more brands are available ! :'(
  22. You will be fine. AT 1080p, the 970 slices though games. Go for the MSI 970 :)
  23. ty
  24. No problem.
  25. the cheapest 4K monitor here is 80000 INR same cost as my whole RIG :P :P
  26. Nice build man, you'll definitely enjoy it. Only information that's been overlooked is whether or not you plan to overclocking any/all of your hardware? You've got a Z97 board but you don't specify whether the 4790 is a 'k' model, also what RAM will you be buying? In terms of the gtx970 models you have available to you, I would choose the gigabyte.
  27. i bought 4790 k and Rams are Kingston Hyper x Fury 8 Gb X 2
    ok I will buy Giga one !
    Not planning to overclock right away may be later on !!

    Cool dude, make sure the RAM is a higher clock speed and try keep it at cas latency 9. A really good kit I recommend is the G.skill Ripjaws-x 8gb x 2 2133 cl9. As for the PSU, if youre gona overclock 600-650W for single GPU if you want to SLI in the future 750-800W. Like most others here recommend Seasonic is a terrific brand also XFX. Good luck.

  30. Go with the MSI 970. Highest boost clock w/ a nice cooler. The gigabyte one has a big cooler, and it may not fit your case.

    Actually the g1 gaming from gigabyte has the highest boost clock with the best cooler on the market for future overclocking.
  32. But at what cost?

    He might have to get a new case.

    Also, sometimes it is really loud
  33. It will fit the case, and the cooler isn't loud, I run a gtx 980 g1 gaming and my front intakes are louder than it, in fact its pretty much inaudible unless you go in and manual increase fan speeds.
  34. guys i can spend max 30000 INR on this card .
    See Snapdeal.com
    Amazon.in
    Flipkart.com
    and suggest which one to get ?

    no the cheapest one is Zotac // Never heard of this brand plus locally not available plus no service centre in DElhi where i live
    Msi has one cheap one for 26500 but its overclocking sucks not even near 1250 Mhz
    Gigabyte is the most expensive one !
    Gaming Series Msi is again more expensive then Asus
    So i choose Asus !

    Hmmm seems like youre the first country I know of that has pricing the right way around.
  46. asus gtx 970 is 29000 msi 32000 gigabyte am not into it as warrenty prob

    Yeah i too like asus strix gtx970
    it can be overclocked to 1250 Mhz as well
    plus it has cover on the rear side of the card !
  48. Guys Suggest me a Gaming Headset around 12000 INR from websites (amazon.in , flipkart.com , snapdeal.com)
    It will be for gaming , music (mobile and Pc) and chat purposes .
    12000 is max limit . Donot get over it .

    I'll prefer if the headphones have noise cancellation (Isolation/reduction ) , surround (7.1) and good sound !
