So been out of the loop for a few months due to well you all know.  So once I move in to the new Pad in a few weeks going to look at getting my currently mothballed gaming PC dusted down and get back in to the games. 

Looking at swapping out my Very Good but Very Hot and Noisy R9 290X for a GTX 970, but cannot see that much of an inprovement

Whats the best Bang for Buck GTX 970 at the moment as I have the ROG swift Screen sitting there with G Sync collecting dust too.

Cheers Scott

Any of the big named brands will do Scott, although the EVGA with it's long and transferable warranty or the Gigabyte G1 with UK based RMA are all good.

Just look around for price and special offers tbh.

Gigabyte is good for RMA support but a bit pricier.

I got Galax one's (now KFA), as they worked out quite a bit cheaper and still came with a decent overclock and custom cooler:
