    More memory, but would you buy one over a 970, given the prices.

    Given it beats the 970, yes. Question is whether you'd buy one over a custom 480.

    Over a 970, yes. Over a 970 if I already have a 970? No, it just might be worth SLI 970's as the prices have dropped, and the cost of a 1070 is too high at the moment...

    That little EVGA one looks good - looking for an upgrade for my mini-ITX machine and that might fit nicely!

    980, second hand = cheaper.

    Unfortunately they were nowhere near when I was looking. New 1060 was much cheaper than second hand 980 on Ebay.

    Why would you name your card Turbo if it runs at stock clocks?
