    I've been using the same pc power and cooling PSU for way over a decade... think i first got it for my dual opteron rig with an AGP geforce back in the day

    I personally never bought another nvidia product after I bought my GTX 970 with "4"gb of vram that actually turned out to be 3.5gb, no idea why anyone is surprised that nvidia is being shady
