I love Asus' color schemes. Their reliability is also awesome. I can't imagine the gaming world being the same without them. That being said, this card looks amazing!

What I love about ASUS graphics is how they are the gold standard that other manufacturers seem to take their ques from. In my experience their cards have always been rock solid, can't go wrong with them.

I have had green, red, black, white, blue? I don't know I think maybe. Anyways never had gold, and it is no secret gold makes things better so, this is the best GTX980 then.

The ASUS brand name simply means quality. I can be assured of years of reliable and superior performance and i desperately need an upgrade to my aging GPU!

Asus makes great GPUs, and this card is no exception. Definitely a color scheme fitting for their 20th anniversary.

Happy Anniversary to ASUS!!!

According to the first hit in Google, http://www.anniversary.us.com/20thanniversary.html, we should be gifting some China.

However, they point out that twenty years ago the songs Love Shack - by B-52's & Funky Cold Medina - by Tone Loc were very popular. Perhaps a mixtape gift is in order.

Asus products are the best around

May 6, 2015 | 09:12 PM - Posted by edwinjamesmiller36

I have bought Asus products in the past and have enjoyed them. As a matter of fact, I am commenting from my Asus ROG 17inch Laptop. I would love to have this limited edition 20th Anniversary GTX 980 to build a desktop PC gaming machine around. Most likely around an Asus ROG motherboard.

My first graphics card was an Asus card. It's been rock solid and overclocks like a beast while staying cool with the great cooler that Asus has put on it.

ASUS always been one of the best manufacturers. Them products always give realiability and toughness. The new 20th anniversary edition GTX 980 looks beautiful and magnificent, and has great features!

I have the Asus z87 Deluxe and this GTX980 and the colors would match so great. It would be a great upgrade to the GTX650 I have right now.

I love that it's gold and has a wicked power delivery system for the GPU. This is finally a worthy contestant for the EVGA GTX 980 Classified.

Sick Card! Do want!

May 6, 2015 | 11:16 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

What I love about the asus gold edition is that for one thing it looks absolutely beautiful. But looks don't matter to me most. I have heard this graphics card has the highest overall clock speed of all the 980s. With that in mind it would be great to win the 980. Plus i'm trying to build my firsts among computer so of course that would be nice.

May 6, 2015 | 11:17 PM - Posted by Will Schehl (not verified)

I love the ways tiscard looks and this card will almost out preform any 980 so it would be great t get one of these.

Love Asus.

Been using their products for 10 years and have never had a problem. I'm looking forward to using a nice, reliable Asus video cards next, and not having problems like I've had with Radeons.

It's gold Jerry, GOLD! Also The VRM's, safety features and cooling mean I can overclock to my hearts content! Japanese caps for long life and stability too. Would really like to get my hands on this.

May 6, 2015 | 11:52 PM - Posted by Darren (not verified)

I love the high quality components, like Japanese capacitors and super quiet 'fanless' operation. Why else do you want a GPU like this, but for its fantastic quality and incredible performance.

May 6, 2015 | 11:53 PM - Posted by PathfinderNC (not verified)

ASUS have pretty decent quality for their graphics cards. I currently run an R9 270 in my rig. Very quiet, decently well cooled and looks nice with that DirectCUII cooler.

May 6, 2015 | 11:53 PM - Posted by Davey (not verified)

Mmmmmm yummy!The things i love about ASUS.... what DONT i love! They always look great they always run cool they are so reliable and packed with features what more could you want? My brothers and i have been using Asus mobos and gfx cards for about 15 years now never had any of them crap out, cant see me buying any other brand if there is an asus version.

May 6, 2015 | 11:57 PM - Posted by hjb182

ASUS makes some high quality hardware, from motherboards to graphic cards and more. This new 20th anniversary GTX 980 Special Edition looks awesome. My favorite feature is the DirectCU II cooler with 0dB fan technology.

I really like how silent the DirectCU coolers are, and the cards look with their backplates.

May 7, 2015 | 03:40 AM - Posted by Courtneyrawr

What I love about the new 20th anniversary GTX 980 Special Edition is that they are actually presenting such a rare giveaway. Its gives people like me an opportunity to actually have a decent gaming graphics card. I could never afford something like this. I struggle to play my games with ease. To be able to have all my settings on max quality and have a beautiful performance would be unreal.

May 7, 2015 | 03:58 AM - Posted by raulduke

One sexy card love the black and gold. Also the 10k Japanese caps and concrete-core chokes and hardened MOSFETs.

ASUS is always my first choice for graphics cards and motherboards, their reputation for outstanding reliability is well deserved. Must say the matrix cooler does look stunning in gold.

This is an excellent looking card and being an ASUS card I am sure it will have excellent overclocking with cool temps and low noise.

The last ASUS card I had was a GTX760 Striker Platinum and that was excellent and I ma sure this is.

Hello.

Reason I love the asus cards is that they have an incredibly long life-span. Currently rocking the asus gtx 560 ti card,had it since its release back in 2011. I had planned to stick with asus for my next card too.

May 7, 2015 | 04:41 PM - Posted by V1CK1T0R (not verified)

I would really like to have this video card since I am running on a very old GTX 560 and I would like to upgrade my system. Not a lot of money to do it though.

I like the esthetics also. It looks really like some nice color scheme to build a whole system on.
Black & Gold FTW.

Good luck to everybody from Panama.

I loved when ASUS released the DirectCU cards, their constant push for innovation has kept me as a customer. This 980 looks sweet and would match my build's black and gold/silver scheme nicely.

This is one gorgeous card! I appreciate gold accented PC parts (unlike some who comment regarding colors of graphics cards and other PC parts), and hope to appreciate them even more on my next PC build when I manage to get it done. ASUS has maintained a great reputation lately, an impressive accomplishment given the critical nature of PC enthusiasts.

I'm sort of an Asus fan boy. I own tons of their products, GPU, MB, and a few drives. My first build, i didnt yet understand the importance of a quality psu, bought a cheap one, overclocked and played a bunch of games, and got some deathsmoke. Bought a new psu, and nothing works. Called asus, sent in my 770 and a crosshair mb. they fixed it, (or replaced it) and i had it back only 2 weeks later. Maybe they are wizards?

May 7, 2015 | 09:44 PM - Posted by John D (not verified)

May 7, 2015 | 09:49 PM - Posted by nathan02

Asus cards are really a thing to behold in the gaming market.. their designs are a topnotch and makes me want to use it as a gun coz of its sci-fi look. They are a proven force in the gpu market and what ai really love about it is that they make every gpu a class on its own.

May 7, 2015 | 09:49 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

love the color scheme and the OC right from the factory

May 7, 2015 | 09:52 PM - Posted by CharlieHeelo

This color scheme is awesome. Team this card with a z97 deluxe mobo, some corsair dominator ram with the gold bar on the heat spreader, and drop it into a corsair 780t. Then maybe do some gold pin-striping on the case. Want.

May 7, 2015 | 09:52 PM - Posted by BamaGuy

Asus means quality and that card would great on my Asus motherboard.

Awesome card from an awesome company. I like the packaging and the card itself.. very classy looking.

May 7, 2015 | 11:22 PM - Posted by Anduiril

This is an amazing card. My three favorite things about this card are (besides the performance):
1. 0db fan. With 2 gaming pc's in a small room you can't get too quiet.
2. The Japanese made capacitors.
3. The color changing "20th Anniversary" to tell you how hard it's working. It would be great to just look through the window on my case and know hard the gpu is working.

The card looks great too. It might be worth making an open air system to be able to see it.

I love that it is a graphics card that will actually match my Asus z97-pro USB 3.1 mono.

Asus makes the best video cards and for a great price too.

I do love ASUS mobo's and especially their overclocked GPU's. This 980 looks stellar with all the gold and everything!

Thanks Asus for sponsoring this contest. One thing I love about Asus graphics cards is how ridiculously over engineered they are. They really don't mess around with their components, which means they tend to be very reliable.

I was just about to buy a GTX Card but will wait. Maybe I'll be lucky.

What I love about ASUS cards is that I've not had one die since I started using them in 2002.

OMG what a fantastic card :) I need to have it :D

This card is just gorgeous. The gold and black match perfectly in my opinion. Especially the gold backplate, it's just stunning.

As for what I like about ASUS cards...
The DirectCU II cooler gives a lot better cooling then a stock GTX card and it's also much quieter. Especially if the card disables the fans at idle/low load, which is most of the time the case with ASUS cards.

In general ASUS cards are also pretty reliable.

Thank you for doing this kind of giveaways! I also want to say that I started reading articles on this site a few months ago and I must say: the articles are really good.
Keep on the good work!

The 20th anniversary edition does have an amazing design but more importantly it's performance will make me a happy gamer.

Been running dual Asus 560ti cards for a while now and had no problems. This monster would be the perfect upgrade.

High clock speeds and good looks

The Maxwell architecture over Kepler is a significant improvement and this card is another great example of it.
