Thanks for all your feedback i went ahead and got a 970 but the 4g-p4-3975-kr I guess this model is more power efficient and i have a 2 year left on the psu warranty and the card comes with a three year warranty. I won't be overclocking but the card comes superclocked should i just leave it like that? When Black Friday rolls around I'll buy a 750w with more than one 12v rail.

Just don't get it. Unless you want a personal bonfire of course...
