In this article, I give you my EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 SC 2GB review with specs included. Right away, I can tell you that this is the deal of all Nvidia 9th generation of graphics cards.

This is the GeForce GTX 960 Superclocked graphics card and most computer gamers should buy this card. It is the best value in the business today and I mean that in every sense of the word. It is the best of performance per dollar on the market as 60 series of every generation usually are.

If you want to play modern games like Battlefield, Call of Duty, Grand theft auto, Assassin’s Creed, Witcher, the new Division that just came out, etc. If you want to play modern AAA game titles like that and you want to play them at a high frame rate (we’re talking 40, 50, 60 frames per second) at 1080p with the graphic detail turned up to High, this is your card

Yes, you can spend more but you don’t actually get that much for it and if you spend less the performance falls off for your money. This is kind of the sweet spot of gaming.

Let me give you two examples. This (the GTX 960) card is $180 dollars on Amazon. The GTX 950 is $150 dollars on Amazon, which is 15% less money but it’s 25% less performance. That’s not a good deal, 25 percent less performance for only 15% less money, just no. You’re actually getting less for your money as you spend less.

Now, going the other direction, the card up from this would be the GTX 970 it’s a $320 dollar card. So, it’s almost not quite double the cost of this but it’s not double the performance, at least not at 1080p, it changes when you want to go to a higher resolution. This article is all about 1080p and this card is all about 1080p.

Just to be clear 1920 by 1080 is two million pixels, its standard full high-definition (Full HD), it’s what your TV is, it’s what most computer monitors actually are. There are higher resolutions, which is called 1440p, and then of course there’s 4K which is the new Ultra HD. This card is inappropriate for those and we’re not going to talk about them.
