hi! can I help you with a GPU?
Yes, I was looking to buy a GTE 970
GTX 970
Nathan R.
ok - happy to help out
do you have any questions?
Nathan R.
one moment while i check
the "superclocked" version - the first card you linked, has a hefty factory overclock
oh, ok
probably runs a little warmer also
Nathan R.
definitely - more power = more heat
but it has really good cooling
is a GTX 970 a good match for an i-7 4790k
Nathan R.
absolutely
