    Sounds like these updates did catch your attention...

    They did! I wasn't expecting these "Pascal" cards to come out until at least the summer...

    Nvidia surprised everyone I think! These new GPUs really took a giant leap forward... Amazing stuff!

    Hmmm. Really?

    I'm not sure if it's worth it since I would pay 20% tax once it's here at least I think. I know it's for new products but not sure for used stuff.

    So the XL is set up. Just waiting for one other piece of equipment to then go use it for a week as a daily driver to see how I feel about it.

    Yeah you'd probably be better off buying the 1070 as well. Seeing as I'd have to ask for about $250 (USD) for the 970. By the time you paid the tax and shipping and all, you'd be in 1070 territory. ($379 USD brand new)

    Yeah that would be too much, currently used gtx 970 costs about 270 over here, which is too much since new ine frim Germany is about 300. When 1070 rolls out prices of new gtx 970 will certainly go down. I would pay up to 250, not more.

    Because the exterior is done in that rustic (in my opinion rusty) style USSR design. Google it and you'll see what I mean.

    I don't see where Battlefield 1 will be successful. Shooters tend to be popular since they are fast paced games.

    World War 1 in reality was a slow paced, boring war of attrition, mainly because advances in firepower did not coincide with advances in mobility.
    Maybe they will have fast paced trench digging!

    I'm going to wait for the cheaper stuff :p but I do agree nvidia still has that wow factor. I hope AMD does something to rival this card

    The 950xl has , in my opinion, a solid feel in the hand

    I kinda like the 950's feel in hand a bit better, but it is a smaller device anyways...

    I like the XL so far. Kinda disappointed with the battery life, but once I get the accessories, we'll see what the verdict is.

    That's incorrect. Xperia Z3 on 4.4.4 for a while and Moto Maxx running 6.0.1 and the OPO on CMS 11 have given me very good battery life that I liked...
