    I should have listened to you guys and bought the 980 Strix.

    I ended up buying the Zotac GTX 980 AMP! Edition on sale for $570, and from the beginning it had some coil whine. Besides the coil whine it was a great performing card with no issues.
    However, this coil whine became so bad over the last month that I luckily got a refund a few days ago.
    Now I'm probably going to order the Strix within the next few weeks I guess.

    I'm also going to buy a G-Sync monitor with the new card. But I did notice that a lot of people have issues with displayport and 900-series GPUs (for example, screen can't wake up and no signal from DP). Are these issues fixed yet? or shouldn't I be worried?

    I've found this:, it seems that the issue still isn't fixed..

    One of my friends uses a pair of Zotac GTX980 AMP! Extreme cards, no coil whine at all, and a great factory overclock. But no overclocking potential at all - Zotac's system is proprietary, it works great as designed but cannot be overclocked outside of what they allow (not without some soldered voltmods, anyhow).

    I'm quite happy with my EVGA GTX980 cards, but of course the Titan X came out the next week. I expect if I buy Titan X, a 980Ti or Titan XI or something will come out the next week, lol.

    You can't go far wrong with a GTX980 Strix or Matrix, unless (like me) you just find the googly owl eyes and angular ROG styling too ridiculous. If you want GTX980 reference, I think the PNY card is the best overclock-potential option out there.
