    Finally upgrading my GPU, but could use some advice

    I'm finally getting a new GPU, the GTX 970, but I can't decide between the MSI (GTX 970 GAMING 4G) and Gigabyte G1 (GV-N970G1 GAMING-4GD), the price difference is 5 euros in favor for the MSI. Are they any known problems for these two cards? I know that I can't go wrong with either, but yeah :)
