You are asking to reach a performance level and then write about colors.
Pinstripes on a car or rig does not make it go faster.
That said, here's this months pick for the best GPUs.
So I am currently planning on upgrading my computer. It is a micro atx build and currently runs a gtx 780. I am looking to do sli with two 980 tis. The main reason I want to do this is in preparation for the release of VR headsets like the oculus rift headset next spring. I am planning on having these upgrades ready by the end of this year. I have done some research into this and am aware that heat is going to be an issue. I know that a blower style fan would be best so that hot air isn't being kicked all over my case (Although I do have a veryy good fan setup with a total of 3 120mm fans and 2 140mm that move a lot of air through my corsair 350d). My questions is, what would be the best 980ti card for this job? The only blower style option I can seem to find is the reference cooler. I guess I am ok with this if there are no other options but that green led is absolutely awful and would completely ruin the color scheme of my build.
If my only options are the reference cooler, which card would be the best to go with out of those (ie reference, superclocked, super super clocked etc)?
Please do not tell me that I only need 1 980ti or that vr is stupid or I should wait. I am doing these upgrades now as I am going to college next year and know I will not have money to spend like this when I am there.
Thank you for your help
