MSI GTX 970

I needed to upgrade my video card, it is an 6950 and 3 years old. It has been a great card but after playing Fallout 4 it is showing its age. So I began looking to upgrade, and after reviewing whats out there and a little hair pulling, I decided on the 970.

I got it on Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NN0GEXQ?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

 

It also cave with a copy of The Division.

Here is what is looks like out of the box.

Here it is in the case, I have a full size tower and it just fits with a little room to spare. So if you have a smaller case make sure you can get it in there before you buy it.

So far it is extremely quiet, and Fallout 4 auto set the graphics to ultra and it handles it very well. I didn’t do any frame rate tests.

I am very happy with this card so far, Boston never looked so good!
