The fact that Asus managed to build upon their already awe-inspiring GTX 980 matrix platinum, to be quite bluntly is art, the way the gold glistens is sure to bring attention to viewers

I always like asus job in term of performance, looking but this one is a BEAST , she had the the best design i ever seen , the best performance out of the box ( clock ) . She is so nice that if you mod all your pc with this you don't need to mod your graphics card.

Forgot to comment, hope not to late.

ASUS has been a leader in computer components for many years with both reliable and visually appealing design.

The Gold GTX 980 would be a great add in for my ROG equipped desktop. :-)

Did I win?

I haven't heard announcements for this contest or the other one with Hardware Cannucks. It would be nice to hear a generic who won, like "Joe B. from Kallamazoo, ID". Otherwise, you wonder if it's another mis-fire like the first Hadware Cannucks give away.

Asus is my favorite card of all! Becuase when i buy it i know it becuase of 100% quality and are destroying other cards :3
Just now i have a Asus R9 280X And i will upgrade to a monster card like this but i dont have the money. I play very graphics-intensive games! So it will be this or nothing! :3 And the Black/Gold color schema is to nice to be true :D!

Asus has always been one of my favorite brands for making such reliable and awesome looking graphics cards. This 20th Anniversary Edition is no exception. I find the color palette to be very eye catching and the ability to overclock to 1431 MHz makes it a serious powerhouse.

May 17, 2015 | 11:55 PM - Posted by NamelessTed

This would be a great replacement for my 660Ti for my 1440p screen. I'll take two.

I've always used Asus cards in my pc's. They have never let me down in terms of durability, performance, and overclocking and I think they look the coolest as opposed to other cards. Congrats Asus on 20 years of bringing people some of the greatest GPUs on the market.

What I like about the golden Asus card is that it has the highest factory overclock out of every 980 that exists, I believe.

I love the color scheme it looks so beautiful.

I love Asus, their Parts never broke in my self built PCs, and I've made a lot! :)
A 980 would be great, right now I only have a 660 (By Asus too :D).

Saw the card at first and had a nerdgasm. I was also helping a friend making a streaming build so I made him get it. He was so pleased when it arrived!

What I really like about the Asus graphics cards Are that they really work with gaming and will not even lag when you play on ultra settings. Asus are all over the world and people would buy them just for the best gaming setup! My claim is that Asus Are the best company! I really love there graphics card and want one for my own pc! I don't even have a graphics card and I can't even play my favorite games on my pc!!!

Special edition graphics cards always catch my eye, be it MSi's anniversary cooler for their 100ME cards or limited production models like ASUS's ARES or MARS cards. The gold looks AWESOME, and ASUS is one of those brands that I never fail to recommend.

I'd love to own a piece of PC hardware history (and a big upgrade for my PC wouldn't hurt either).

May 25, 2015 | 07:07 AM - Posted by Jon Rees (not verified)

A fine piece of kit. Would be a nice upgrade from Asus 750ti.

I turned to Asus for my first build when the GTX 660 was a beast. This card looks like a whole new beast.

Compared to other company's Asus line of gpu's stand out the most when it comes down to looks and aesthetic hands down amazing.

All my PCs in the house are stored centrally in a cabinet. This graphic card is perfect as it will enable great gaming performance while while being col and quiet.

I love Asus, I have literally every tech thing manufactured by Asus. Just not a graphics card, would love to complete my collection with this bad ass gold and black GTX 980. I hope I win.

This card looks awesome! I am a GeForce fan! I won't use any other card. This one tops them all. Speed and performance, of course, what's about. It looks nice too.

I think this is the best looking GPU ever! Is super cool and very sexy.

Iv been with ASUS for all of my PC life. Iv never used another brand of Graphics card. I started out with the ASUS AGP-V3400. Haha it was the first of its kind to have a fan enhanced heat sink! At the time I thought it was the pinnacle of computer technology. Then I moved onto the ASUS V8200 DLX, a beast at the time and if I'm correct the first graphics card to have premium black PCB. Not to waste anymore of your time reading I'm now running a ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Ti ROG Poseidon Platinum 6GB. Great for anything and everything i do. I think I am a loyal ASUS customer and would love and appreciate this limited addition Graphics Card.
