okay I have a GTX 770

so question time:
what factor better is the 990 to the 770?
Will it fit in the same slot as the current 770?
I have a high output power box, so it should just use the same wiring?

sorry most of my hardware knowledge is old, worked with software too long :)

how many monitors do you use Bruce, and how does your current card cope with AC ?

If your PC case is a full tower it will fit no problems, the 980 is a lot longer than the 770 so if the HDD cage limits the length of GPU that may be a problem. I would also think you will need a 650 watt PSU and the 980 will require 2 x 12v  power cable plugs as well , so you will need adapters if not already on the existing power supply. It will be a huge improvement on your current card performance wise.

I went from a 780 to a 980 (with triples), and the increase wasn't that massive. But the 780 was quite a beast for its generation. But from a 770, you should get quite a nice boost.

I'm not that old!

I think from memory you have a smaller box, but luck has it I have a really big super duper tower here if you go down the 1070 path.  RX-580 is a nice card to think about if your still running single screen.
