EVGA GeForce GTX 970
The GTX 970 from EVGA is powered by the next-generation NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, giving you incredible performance, unmatched power efficiency, and cutting-edge features. Maxwell is the most advanced GPU architecture ever made, designed to be the engine of next-generation gaming. Inspired by light, it was designed to solve some of the most complex lighting and graphics challenges in visual computing. For the first time, gaming GPUs can dynamically render indirect light using the new VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination technology). Scenes are significantly more lifelike as light interacts more realistically in the game environment.

ACX 2.0 Fans Only Activate at 60°C+
In supporting users getting both a silent but powerful PC, the fans in the ACX 2.0 cooler don't activate until the unit reaches more than 60°C, these temperatures are well within the safe limits of the GPU, this means when you are reading your email or surfing the web, you won't hear and active fan in the background.

Double Ball Bearing Fan Design - The Better Choice
The most beneficial part of using the double ball bearing design in the ACX 2.0 fan motor is that it provides 400% longer lifespan over competitors oil-sleeved bearing designs, this is due to the fact that the oil used in oil sleeve bearings will dry out in a shorter period of time, or even leak after and amount of usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for Money Good card for the price of a old gen card. plays top games like COD with all setting on max with no problems at all.
Date published: 2017-03-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product and Service Overall the GPU did the job for what I needed for my first computer build. The service was very quick regarding delivery and packaging and pleased with the price overall, but I do wish I had gone for a 980ti.
Date published: 2017-02-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value Great card for the price and good value if compared to the GTX1060. This card still holds its ground very well. This card has more cuda cores than the EVGA GTX 1060. Unfortunately I've had to Rma my card as it arrived faulty but scan quickly sorted me out with another.
Date published: 2017-01-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great card for mid-range budget build Really nice card, paired with an i5 processor and 16gb of ram it runs all of the newest games at over 60fps in ultra settings in 1080p

Rated 3 out of 5 by from check compatibility before buying i already had a evga 970 in my computer and thought of adding another one for sli for the more intensive games, only problem is that evga dont tell you untill you research EXTENSIVELY, not all of them work together, you will need to check the serial numbers are compatable, unfortunately mine was not, but great customer service and got it returned quickly

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok and price is right, but very noisy graphics card. I would have chosen a different make if I had known, but the advertising said it was quiet - no. My last GeForce card was a MS one and was much quieter. oh well you get what you pay for.
Date published: 2016-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This card is well designed. The fans on this card are definitely a point to note. They are dual ball bearing fans which are switched off until the temperature of the card reaches a high enough value to require them to be turned on. The fans rarely exceed 40% usage. As for the performance of the card, it is a little better than expected due to the boost and is definitely one of the most cost effective cards on the market.
Date published: 2016-11-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall Product is typical of EVGA. Fantastic. Easy to fit. Install etc... also comes with extra cables to allow 1st time install. I am now thinking of getting another 2 to allow SLI.
