    Buy the cheaper one (but I would buy a 3rd party warranty or use a good CC that has a warranty period since this is ASUS we are talking about). I cannot figure out why the ROG is $~200 more, aside from the ROG branding...I certainly would not pay a penny more to be honest. Same boost clock, and a 90%+ chance they both use the same IC vendor for ram (hope for Samsung).

    I'm not buying one. I already have the ROG version. Just curious if there was an acutal difference.

    Noted.

    AS of this post, NE has dropped the price to the ROG only being $10 more then the cheaper card.

    One was the result of the Nvidia shenanigans to remove other companies names from the gaming lines, otherwise they're the same card.
     
    Aluminum, d8lock and Algrim like this.

    Oh, ok. Now I kind of wish mine was the Arez version. Never realized the GPP era cards were ever released.

    I'd have to imagine at some point those Arez cards might become collectors items. They couldn't have made all that many.
