Nice upgrade from GTX 750ti
Posted by: Scott from: on
I upgraded from the 750ti and saw a nice performance boost. I am getting an extra 15-25 fps without doing any overclocking. Can play anything I throw at it on Highest/Ultra with ease. Fans barely move even when playing Battlefield:Hardline on Ultra for hours. May be that my rig is in a colder room. And when they do move, they are extremely quiet. No coil whine that I can hear. Great product for the price.

Beast of a GPU.
Posted by: JXSH from: on
I upgraded from a 750Ti to this 960 FTW, and what an improvement it is. Sure it only has 2gb of VRAM, but this FTW edition is insanely overclocked and can run any game I throw at it. In the description it says that it runs at 1304MHz, but mine runs at 1443MHz straight out of the box, and the temps are low enough where there's still room for some overclocking of my own. I'm running games like Dying Light, MGS V, SW Battlefront and Fallout 4 at High to Ultra settings and getting 60+ FPS at 1080p.
Now keep in mind that this GPU is not really made for 1440 or 4k. If you want to play games at 1440 or 4k, you're going to need a 970 or a 980ti.
But if you just want to play some solid 1080p gaming, then this is deffinately the card for you. And for around $200, you honestly can't find a better mid-range card.

I upgraded from a gtx660ti to this card. The bench marks weren't a huge difference but there is a noticible difference when gaming. Runs quieter and cooler than the 660. You can't go wrong with evga and nvidia

Great mid-range video card.
Posted by: Effectiv from: on
This card is outstanding. My GTX 560ti fried and needed something that day, so I went in to grab something.
I decided on this instead of a 970 because I'd save a little over $100. I now realize that for my gaming and design needs, the 970 would be complete overkill.
I do work in Photoshop, illustrator, video editing, and gaming. I've maxed out nearly every game I play with 80-100+fps. I don't own many AAA games that have came out this year, however.
And this thing is QUIET. The cooler on this card is awesome. Doesn't even kick on until it's needed. Read that again. I'm not kidding, it doesn't even turn the fan on until a certain threshold is reached. To be safe, I turn mine on to around 40% and it keeps my temps under 60c at load.
My specs for my pc:
This GTX 960
Corsair 750w modular psu
4tb bulk storage
128gb Samsung pro ssd.

Upgraded from a GTX 750 to this card and I have to say simply amazing. Actually have 2 of these, one in my wife's new PC and now one in mine. Smooth as silk.
We bought this card because we play EverQuest 2, H1Z1, and 7 Days to Die. Runs all games on Ultra flawlessly!

Entry-Level GTX 900 series card hits 'Sweet Spot'
Posted by: SputnikYuri from: on
This is a great card to replace anything below Nvidia's GTX 600 series. Perhaps not as powerful as some of the previous series most powerful cards, but much more efficient; Runs quieter and cooler.

An alright card for what you pay for
Posted by: Mike from: on
Biggest difference between a GTX 960 vs the 970 is 2 gigs of VRAM. The 960 has 2 while the 970 has 3.5 (+500mb at a slower clock speed). It's also about a 150 dollar difference. Step back and think about what you want to be using this card for. It can run most games fine at 60fps, but at lower settings. As far as benchmarks go, the 970 is a much better performing card than the 960. It's a factor of either getting something NOW, or getting something that gives +30-40fps and better performance all around for the extra cost.
Anyway, from personal experience, it can run every game I play from CSGO at like 200-300fps, GTA5 at 100-120fps on medium/high settings, or other games at about 40-60fps at medium/high settings (ARK). If you want to play other games and benefit from the greater FPS, get a 970. When you're a gamer, FPS means everything, even moreso than shiny graphics. Get your FPS to 60+fps before valuing pretty graphics. The 970 will achieve both over the 960.
-GTX 960: Get it now if you are in desperate need of an upgrade and plan on upgrading at a later point in time. It's gotten to the point in time where it's considered as a mid/mid-high range card.
-GTX 970: Get it if you can afford to or plan on saving up for something like this at a later point in time. Pay a little more and get something vastly superior.
Although I own this card, it's something I'm not planning on keeping in the long run. I fell into the "I needed a card now vs months down the road". My advice for anyone buying computer hardware: DO YOUR RESEARCH. DON'T BUY SOMETHING JUST BECAUSE IT'S LESS EXPENSIVE. If you do, you could be buying a hugely inferior card for like 70 dollars less than something that blows it out of the water (does not really apply to the 960 vs 970 cards).

Great mid-range card
Posted by: Chesties from: on
Really liking this card so far. It Runs all my steam games, WoW, HoTS, and LOL on ultra with no issues. It even came with a backplate, something you usually only see on higher end cards.

Great graphics and value
Posted by: beamer61 from: new jersey on
I always buy the previous generation of graphics cards and this fits the bill, The newer 4gb 970/980 versions are twice as much in cost yet by the time a game comes out that taxes the 960 the next generation of cards will be out again with the previous version at half the price of the latest and greatest. It is one thing to be cutting edge but it's another to pay for what you don't need. If this was a laptop and difficult to upgrade I might consider the latest but this is a desktop and if you can't replace a graphics card there is a kid on the block who can and will for 10 bucks. In the end I will spend half as much and still be cutting edge for 99 percent of the games available.

Perfect for Fallout 4
Posted by: torakalmighty from: on
I started playing Fallout 4 with my old graphics card and quickly realized I needed a new one. This is exactly what I required to play on ultra quality, and Best Buy's website even had it 30% cheaper than anyone else. Easy to install, cheap, and an absolute beast. I'd recommend this to anyone.
