The Strix series is a real hoot. Big fan of how the GPUs look.

Remove the stickers from the GPU and it looks great. I like the 0db feature, i'd just underclock the card and hope it won't spin up past 10%.

I like the looks of the DCUII more but the features of the Strix are definetly better.

Those headphones on the other hand are butt ugly, good god

Is the strix series meant to be higher or lower end than the ROG series?

I think it's on the same level just a different design/logo

It would also be interesting to see how that headset measures up to something from Sennheiser or Beyerdynamic

Surely the cards cant be on the same level... I think that they are meant to be slightly lower end, more affordable cards. I don't know about the headsets though.

Well all the mosfets etc...used will be on the same level, This card just wont have features like the memory defroster, ROG LED and ROG designed shroud, Apart from those things they are pretty identical in features and quality.

Awesome write up James. Can't wait for the EVGA offering to see some form of direct comparison. Over all I like the clean-ish look of this card not quite as simplistic as the perfect Club3D styling... but hell it's ASUS.
