Hello everyone, I'm thinking of getting this Asus ROG G20:

I want to upgrade the graphics card to a GTX 980. I heard that it needs to be a reference model. Will this work?

Thanks in advance for everyone's generous help :)

EDIT: Please excuse the prices, I live in Canada. haha

yes, it will work beautifully, i bought mine from Best Buy and i paid $1399,99, i upgraded with the EVGA GTX970 SC, 16gb G.Skill Ripjaws and a 240gb SSD from Kingston, i'm also from Canada, i'll recommend checking prices in newegg.ca, that same card is $20 cheaper and there's other options (3 980's reference) i also would advice to compare between the 970 and the 980, i'm not sure the price difference is worth it, almost twice as much, good luck and enjoy your new rig!!

Thank you so much for your help! I have not yet purchased the 980/970, however I did get the ASUS ROG G20 and even with the default specs (i7 4790, 8 GB ram, GTX 760, 150 GB SSD/ 1 TB HDD, etc.) it is still amazing. Thank you!
