Uunless everyone's revealed their 900 series cards, I would wait to see what other quality card makers come up with. I wouldn't move (and won't be, I'm going to pick up a 980 once I see what everyone has to offer) on a 900 series card until I saw at least the ASUS, EVGA, and MSI offerings. Even though an EVGA won't do you wrong, I like to know what my options are so I don't end up missing out on an excellent cooling system or something from one of the other guys.

Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, PNY and Zotac have all released non-reference cards. More to come.

I was pretty sure PNY had only announced reference cards, but yeah, mostly everyone else already has some amount of non-reference announced.

EDIT: Though, just to be clear, I'm not at all advocating ordering one now. Definitely wait for sites to benchmark the non-reference cards from the different major distributors before you decide to pick one up or not. I'm personally waiting to see how EVGA's non-reference 980s review before I pick one up, just to be safe.

Looks to me like the PNY 970 has a different cooler. Reviews are out there but they are kind of thrown together.

These two pages need to be merged.

Reakktor has the correct name and more info filled out.

reakktor.com has the wrong name but more of their games linked.

Its not that bad. You can probably wait 2-5 years before you shave it off.

Hoping they do some kind of Ryan podcast or livestream or just change the site back over to the Ryan extravaganza they had last year.

I doubt it. The duders don't like to dwell on it.

My Nexus 5 has been great, and it's super cheap compared to other flagship models.

QFT. OP you should really take a look at the Nexus 5, hardware is about as good as the HTC One and you can get it for half the price. If you want you could wait for the inevitable Nexus 6 coming later this year.

Why do they constantly make this mistake with each Wolfenstein ? It seems so obvious people want to shoot hitler

I have no idea, seems obvious that it is what people want. I especially want to shoot him if he is some stupid resurrected zombiecyborg Hitler that is back to life for the third time. Sucks that he is not in this game. If i ever make a game i am going to put Hitler in it regardless of the setting.

I don't want to know details. Just a yes or a no.
