    this gpu would greatly speed up the progress of building a computer for myself instead if using my cell phone. I probably would cry.... no wait... would deff shed a tear and upload a photo of it.

    Just gave my desktop rig to my cousin recently, so having a ASUS Matrix GTX 980 would be one of the building blocks for a new rig (that I plan to have purchased/built sometime in January). Naturally I would put said rig through some gaming "tests" ;) The rig would use some other ASUS parts as well, most likely being the motherboard ...

    Oh, Asus, Great and Mighty!

    During this season of giving, please show mercy toward my feeble HD3850 infested system! If you could please share but a small portion of your bountiful pixel shader treasures, I would be most grateful.

    Amen.

    A Poseidon would nicely replace the 260X that has (hopefully) temporarily taken the place of my dead 6970

    Either one would do, but I am leaning toward that MATRIX.
