I selected the GTX980 over the GTX970 short on research, if I had done some reading I would have found that the 970 is only about a 12% performance loss over the GTX980.
I've worked in the storage arena for close to 20 years now, directly for EMC Corporation for a number of them, and indirectly for them (as a consultant) for the remainder.

Yes, Including that one.
I am usually (but not currently) a consultant for EMC, but the opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
I'm vendor agnostic. I don't get into religious arguments about what is best for other people. That's a stupid argument. Different technologies work better for different people, and who am I to judge.
