The card has served me well and still performs amazingly thermally maxing at around 35°C under full load. Surprised I haven't needed to repaste it. Sadly it struggles in MSFS, which is first game that has really pushed it past its limits of playing games smoothly. I've been waiting until until the 3000 series to upgrade. However, I plan on keeping it in my last gen system where it will get some occasional light use. O7

    That was a great video card and it's good to see it will still have some usage.

    Definitely, never expected for it to last 5 years! Been very happy with it and hoping to pick up a 3090 K|ngp|n Hydro Copper for my current system :)

    Man.. the 980TI must be loads better than my 970. I can’t even run Black Ops 1 on max SMH.

    Which 3000 series card will you be running? I plan on upgrading to the 3090 in late December.

    It's held up until this year quite well. MSFS is the first game that's completely overwhelmed it. Planning on a 3090 KPE HC if I can get my hands on one. Hopefully within the first two weeks of November for Cyberpunk.
