Asus is a brand well known for computer products such as motherboards and graphic cards. They just launched a special anniversary edition of graphic cards that every gamer would want to own. In association with NVIDIA, they introduced GTX 980 GPU that houses in a beautiful golden enclosure. This graphic card has clock speed of 1.43 GHz.
The other graphic card that is part of the celebrations is the NVIDIA Turbo GTX 970. This one comes in a suave white colour packaging and we for one love the look. This is what every gamer wants to showcase in his computer cabinet and with it gain some bragging rights.
