The gtx 980 has some issues with the drivers as far as I know.

The only issue for 980 - you need to install nvidia web driver.

But performance and especially perf/watt ration is amazing.

slightly overclocked 980 beats 290x in opencl (fp32) perf while consuming 70-80 watts less.

You can get flash service from macvidcards for 980 and it will have less issues when upgrading osx (you won't need to unplug the card for osx upgrade)
