That card looks amazing, usually not a big fan of the bling and all of that fun stuff, but this was done tastefully. My g/f's PC is based on an ASUS Mobo, no issues yet. Awesome stuff.

Asus makes great stuff, and this card looks like one of the greatest ever. If only I could stop drooling . . .

I've sticked with Asus for many years now and they've never failed me. I would even go as far as to say that without them I am incomplete.

Asus, you complete me

I like some the quality on some of their products. I have a 144Hz monitor from ASUS and it's amazing! The specs and design of the box is what amazes me about the 20th Anniversary 980.

May 12, 2015 | 06:14 PM - Posted by Cody Mort (not verified)

Woah, that's one sexy Graphics Card! out of all the gpu brands I would have to say I like Asus, and MSI the most, with Asus at the top. Currently running a mid-tier AMD gpu right now, a 980 would be a hell of an upgrade. I can't wait to see who wins.

May 12, 2015 | 06:14 PM - Posted by callum41353

The Strix edition coolers look awesome

I started pc gaming with an asus card, still with them but now on mobile platform, laptop G750, their hardware never let me down.

I've had an Asus gaming laptop for about 3 years and its been amazing. Im building my first PC with a gold Asus mobo and its been so hard choosing a nice looking GPU for it but this would be perfect, a gold Asus mobo and a sexy gold Asus GPU, yes please.

Very nice looking Card. Fits perfectly in my golden/browinish looking PC. Besides this, i know that ASUS makes some awesome Cards that last forever.

May 12, 2015 | 06:17 PM - Posted by bilal iqbal (not verified)

Awesome looking hardware . finest looking 980 on the planet . Myself having 960 strix . But this card looks much more sexy. If I had this card I would've overclock it even more. For extreme pleasure.

I love the looks of all ASUS especially the new anniversary 980.

This card eould be awesome for my new build, the inly part I need is a new gpu!
And man this one looks sexy, I really like the gold and will match nicely with my Asus Z97-a motherboard in my define r5.
What I like about Asus gpu's is the appearance and cooling performance/type.
Love the new strix design but I havem't seen anything sexier than this!!!
Oh goooood! It looks amazing!!!

May 12, 2015 | 06:19 PM - Posted by MrFancyRaptor (not verified)

This card is so beautiful that even though I'm only running a gtx 660, I would still probably hang this as decoration. As for what I like about Asus, I like everything. They are by far my favorite componet and laptop company. They understand the importance of appearance, and prove it by making products with killer performance that also look amazing (Maximus motherboards and the UX500 Ultrabook)

May 12, 2015 | 06:20 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

The gold design is absolutely stunning. Would be a great part for my next pc build.

May 12, 2015 | 06:21 PM - Posted by Retroman

beautiful card, I need a gpu so badly I'm still rocking a gtx 670 oc, 2gb just doesn't cut it for some of the AAA Games out there. never bought anything from ASUS that hasn't kicked butt. Big fan boy here. I sell computer components for a living, never have trouble recommending their Mobo/gpu/monitors :)

May 12, 2015 | 06:21 PM - Posted by Carlos Maldonado (not verified)

i've heard nothing but good things about asus products. I might buy one their gpu in the near future but i have to save up some money first :(

May 12, 2015 | 06:21 PM - Posted by Skrubsickle

The card look so sexy with the black and gold and if they had a version like this for the 960 (because i cant afford a 980) I would buy it in a heart beat. I personally think this is the best looking graphics card on the market right now and that it blows the reference cooler out of the water.

May 12, 2015 | 06:21 PM - Posted by Senjar (not verified)

The Asus GPUs have the best cooler in my opinion. Its very efficient and not huge like others . wink wink

May 12, 2015 | 06:22 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

ASUS graphics cards are always reliable and some of the best I have ever used.

That is one sick looking graphics card, would look awesome in any system.

May 12, 2015 | 06:23 PM - Posted by Dagen

Been slowly collecting pieces to build my first computer for about a year now. This graphics card would be amazing and a great encourage as a young builder. And as a film student this would make my life so much nicer when trying to edit 4k video.

May 12, 2015 | 06:24 PM - Posted by Tenebrosi (not verified)

I think this card looks amazing. Who wouldn't want a card that destroys games and looks awesome while doing it!?

I really dig the black and gold color scheme. ASUS graphics cards have always dipped swag.

What do I like about Asus GPU's? They're well built, aesthetically pleasing. On top of that, the Anniversary card is the fastest out of the box GTX 980 I'm aware of.

I like the architect that ASUS does on all of their motherboards and graphics card this 20th Anniversary graphics cards looks extremely sleek and clean. It would be nice to add to my computer parts as I start to build my computer and this card would go with my color scheme very nice! Congrats on the 20 years ASUS!

I really like its color. (also it would be nice to replace my GTX970 3.5GB + 0.5GB Stutter Edition... i wasn't so lucky like those who live in the US, i wasn't able to get a refund... even my country's "consumer protection" just laughed at me, so if any scammer reads this, come to Hungary, you can scam legally here :) ps.: I can't even play Dying Light with nvidia's recommended setting, i just crash after ~15min of play\hitting 3.5gb.)

This Asus GPU seems to be the best performing 980 at stock, and that is very interesting especially since I'm not familiar with gpu overclocking anyway!

Congratulations one the 20th ASUS, hope your rise continues. Currently running an ASUS GPU and Mobo- performance, stability, and price are keys to why I continue to choose your products. Thank you for celebrating with us by bringing out such a beautiful card!

I like the Asus graphics cards for their design, sound level and temperatures, which is why I'm recommending them to my friends.

I love all the attention to detail on this card! the black pci bracket, the black heatpipes and heatsink, the gold plated connectors and accents and ofcourse the black sleeved extension cables!

Also a small sidenote... if they started in 1996 wouldn't that be 19 years? I'm born in 96 and atleast I'm 19... I think...

What i like about ASUS graphic cards is the way they look.They always managed to create some really good looking graphic cards.Especially the STRIX ones.If you have a case with a window,you can really make a very good looking pc with one or two STRIX cards.

Oh lord - if I had that card...

My first card was actually an ASUS, and I don't plan on getting any other! This 980 looks amazing!

Every motherboard/ gpu's I've ever used was from them (which i think is about 15 each..) and one of them came defective. when i called them they sent a replacement with overnight shipping without even investigating! you guys are awesome and i'd be honored to receive another one of your prestige products.

Really like the fact that the fans don't turn on until the temperature gets really high! Hate the fact that my GTX 560 Ti sounds like a leaf blower when gaming!

I am the biggest Asus fan! I work at best buy and sell pretty much only asus computers haha but everything I build is pretty much all asus so this amazing, new asus 980 gold edition would be a great replacement for my asus 780 right now. I don't really ever enter these contests but I had too once i saw the beauty of this card, so hopefully I win :) But even if i dont i will still tell every customer i talk to about how amazing asus is.

I love Asus GPU's because they push the limits of the reference designs to it's full potential. It gives us a better performing and more efficient card which allows us to play games at a much higher frame rate than most other cards.

I'm loving the black and gold accents. It's good to see that they powder coated the heatpipes and pci-e bracket black. Attention to detail is good.

The 20th Anniversary Edition looks amazing. I've always kept an eye on the Asus Matrix Line, since those look so cool, and adding this gold color scheme makes it even better!

The thing I love about the 20th edition 980 from Asus is that it actually matches my gold build that I did. I was one of the five that actually liked the gold design they did with their z87 boards. Coupled with the awesome performance that is the 980, I don't know what's not to like about this card.

Love the "Safe Mode" VBIOS reload feature, this will come in handy.

Trying to build my first system and DAMN does this card look good and probably runs 10x better.

I love the aesthetic of this card soooo much!

Well, the color scheme is pretty awesome and so the specs
BTW at the moment I don't have any graphics card so it'll be great to own one.

Asus has always been one of the best graphics card brands. I personally love how JJ approached the community and such an approach says the company is very serious about their users and about gamers/enthusiasts in general. Also its been shown time and time again that that the CUII cooler is always on top of the benchmark scores in terms of heat dissipation (lets not count the factory overclock, which they do good with as well).
Asus as a brand is also very famous for the quality of their motherboards and laptops. I don't see them losing their position in the market any time soon. Kudos to all working in Asus.

That thing is shiny in so much ways. I want it. But I wish everyone the best of luck.

The gold of this videocard is done very well its not overdone. I like the cooler design but really what makes it feel good is the specifications.

The person who wins this should be very happy.

The general look of it is great, The Matrix looks great too but this color scheme makes it look like a tank.

This card looks frickin' ballin'. And its a beast too! :O
That is what makes any build perfect :*

I think I would rig it in a ventilated case on my desk and somehow run it connected to the desktop, so I can show off the gold (I LOVE GOOOOOLD, had to do the reference sorry) of this beast. And who would want to hide that in a case anyway? Best of luck to everyone and thanks ASUS/PCPer!

I have always had a passion for computers and I always like to use asus if they are within my budget they are just the buggati of graphics cards and nothing beats them really.

ASUS is the first choise when i look at graphic cards. This gold edition would be perfect in my black/gold build.

ASUS is what I started with, and is what I stick with.

That's a really nice looking graphics card - and it also performs like a beast so that's an awesome addition as well.

Good luck to everyone entering :D

Have a Strix 970 - awesome design and love the idea of having a fanless card when it is on idle!

What I love about the GTX 980 Gold Edition is it would match my systems color scheme
