Default GTX 970?

I see recommendations suggesting this video card but there are several versions of the card, ACX2.0, ACX2 FTW and others. I look at the specs but they don't mean much to me. Can anyone describe the difference between the various versions, as far as use with Edius 8.1? There doesn't seem to be much difference in price between versions in most cases.

Thanks,

Bob

I think the main difference is down to CUDA cores and if you are using GPU intensive effects the more cores the better.
I have a 970 and it seems fine, if you don't use GPU effects you wouldn't gain much benefit.

You may get confused with the various 'versions' and model numbers but the 970 chip is the same and most tweaks will be down to the cooling or the overclocking of the chip.
Most should come with 4Gb of DDR

Something to read about that 4gb memory allotment in the 970.

Get at least a 980 and avoid the ram partitioning.
There is also a class action lawsuit against Nvidia over this.
The card works fine up to the 3.5gb max.

Thanks for your replies, I don't do gaming or use After Effects so I'm not too worried about the .5mb issue.

As I said the card will work. For $100 more you can get a GTX 980, which is a much better card. It has nothing to do with gaming. If you are using 3rd party plugins, that is where the memory and CUDA cores come into play. If you don't use 3rd party plugins, a basic card will work for you.
