Well, both lists only go as far the 970 (like I said). They don't mention the 980.
But in any case, I get what you're saying. I'll probably keep my 955 (and OC when necessary). Since the prices are dropping, I'll tell my friend to buy a new 955 for himself (atm, for €86 = $124), and everybody is happy.
Thanks for the info and the comments!
