NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Review – GIGABYTE G1 Gaming
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
Beloved readers, we are gathered here today in the presence of these witnesses, to join NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 and the hard core gamers in holy PC Gaming union, which is commended to be honorable among all men; and therefore is not by any to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly, but reverently, discreetly, advisedly and solemnly. Into this holy estate these two come to be joined. If any person can show just cause why they may not be joined together, let them speak now or forever hold their peace. Monstru, September 19, 2014
No, no, even though my big beard and my deep singing voice would recommend me for the job, I didn’t become a minister in the last few days. I did however get married recently so maybe that is why those words stuck to my head. Or…who knows, maybe because the union between a gamer and his graphic card can be described as a short marriage. Don’t laugh boys, I am serious. Unlike long lasting marriages, which cannot be taken into consideration is this situation, short marriages have more similarities to this relationship than anything else.
When a new GPU is out, you will research it, think about it all day, look for it, want it with passion and struggle to get it. Just like when you see a girl you like… After that, in the beginning all that you will do will be to play with your new GPU, see what it can do and brag about it to your friends. Just like with a new girlfriend. Then the crazy passion will start to fade away, but you will still be happy with your nice, reliable GPU. And even if some other GPU will be launched, you will still be faithful to your old, beloved GPU. Just like you do in the first months/years with your new girl. But here is where the difference from a long lasting marriage occurs. In that case, this is the point where we say “they lived a long and wonderful life together”.
But as I said, in the case of a gamer and his GPU, it’s not like that. No sir… After the peaceful years the gamer begins to crave for something else. Sure, that GPU you saw last year didn’t make you wish to get rid of your old GPU, but this new one… Oh boy, it’s so sexy and powerful and it has all those features you GPU doesn’t… Just like it happens to some guys after the first years of marriage. You had your happy years now you are looking for something more sexy and new and exciting and…oh well, you get the idea. So you dump your old faithful GPU and get a new one. And the cycle repeats.
And you are in luck, because compared to a marriage you didn’t loose half of your belongings to the old GPU. All you had to pay was that classic “699 USD” or something like that and bam… you got a new GPU. Hmm… maybe is better to stick to your wife / girlfriend when it comes to your couple life, and only switch GPU’s once every year, what do you say? That sounds like a more sensitive thing to do, no? I mean, when we look at it like this, it’s a small price to pay for that new thrill you have when you buy it, take it out of the box for the first time and then start enjoying it with full passion. And just to be clear, I was talking about the new GPU, not a girl…
So why are we here today? Well, well, well… It’s time for a new GPU boys! Get your wallets ready, your hopes high and get ready to crave for something new. ‘Cause Nvidia just launched the new Maxwell based GeForce 9xx generation and you boys are in for a new treat. Or treats, if you have the cash. Because unlike wives, GPU’s you can actually have 2, 3 or 4 at the same time! Are you ready??? Do you really want it??? Well… here it goes….
