Graphics Card Review:
- What can I say? The graphics card is actually pretty decent for a budget build... well the RX 480 is more on the lines of budget build now ($200). The GPU is quite (w/ the two fans it has), fast (for its price), and it has a sleek design (not to big and not to small). Since I first started with a budget build PC, I wouldn't have expected anything else from this graphics card. It performs will within the Medium/High graphic settings, and so far I have no issues with it which is a good thing because most computer parts that I get are defective. With me not owning a 144 Hz gaming monitor, the HDMI input from the graphics card to my monitor is decent, no screen tear or anything but you can tell its not perfect since the monitor isn't running at 144 Hz (its running at 60-68 Hz). If both the CPU were overclocked I could expect an FPS increase (as seen in the FPS averages listed above) but nothing extreme, but I don't like superclocking/overclocking my computer parts (weird I know) so I didn't include those numbers.
In short, this is a budget build graphics card. If these FPS numbers do not please you, you should then invest instead in the RX 480 (or GTX 970 which both are in the same price range). If you plan on getting this card and expecting 4k graphics and using Ultra/Max graphic settings in-game 24/7... then you are wrong. You will be able to play a max of Medium/High graphics depending on the settings you pick and what game you pick/play. If you want something better and want to play on Ultra/Max settings every single day, I recommend saving a bit more and getting for a 1070/1080. But if you need a budget graphics card, and you don't care about Ultra/Max settings then this is the card that you can get and you won't be disappointed.
Things to know:
- Out of the box, the GPU is superclocked.
- The box includes the graphic card, DVI to VGA adapter, 2x4 pin to 8 pin adapter, EVGA poster, EVGA badge/sticker and a user guide/manual.
- The card needs a 8 pin power connector (not 6), the pin is located on the top right of the card when plugged into the motherboard. If you don't have an extra 8 pin power connector from your PSU, you can use the included '2x4 pin to 8 pin adapter' that's in the box and use both 4 pin power cables that you have on your Power supply/PSU to connect the 8 pin to your GPU.
- Register the GPU on the EVGA site.
- Be sure to download EVGA PrecisionX from their site so you can keep track of the GPU heat and fan.
- You will need to go to the Nvidia website to download the latest drivers/updates for the graphics card.
- Download 'GeForce Experience' to get more features out of the graphics card potential.
- Depending when you purchase the card or any other Nvidia card, you might get a free game or a free in-game item.
For example, I got a 'Diablo hero: Kaijo skin, and a 7-day Stim Pack' for Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm. You should check
on the EVGA website before purchase to see if the card has any special promos.
- Promo code will be emailed to you once the graphics card has been shipped and then you can redeem it.
I am still happy to say I am very Happy with the outcome of the GTX 950. Since installing this beauty I have heavily modded my Fallout 3,4 and Skyrim games and only once in a blue moon do I crash to desktop but I do not think this has anything to do with the GTX 950, it is just me testing my limits with my Rig. Again this was my first time upgrading a pc and after doing the necessary research I was easily able to make the changes I wanted.
My other upgrades to make my pc capable to smoothly play games are:
Thermaltake - 430W TR2 ATX Power Supply & 8 more gb of Ram. (total 16 gb ram)
My rig is HP Pavillion 500-054
I am pretty new to doing this type of upgrade to a pc but I love tinkering with computers since ive basically oven up on console gaming. I was playing fallout 3 and was able to run on medium or high settings but I really wanted to play fallout 4.
I knew right away it would work on my system but not good enough for me to enjoy so I spent some time researching graphics cards and reading reviews and the gtx 950 was n my heart over.
Now once I got it and installed it (which was very easy). I went to turn the pc on and realized my power supply didn't have a 6 pin connector. So I rant I Best Buy just to get one that would do the job.
After all the fuss I finally got it installed and the drivers updated and loaded fallout 4 when my lower expectations were lifted through the roof!! My system automatically detected the video settings at ultra!! Let me tell you! I was blown away by how it looked,ran and played. The fan is even really quiet, now in the next few days I will get into understanding more of the technical jargon. But I can't say enough how impressed I am and how happy I am that I purchased this graphics card!!! I very highly recommend it to anyone who wants amazing graphics at a amazing price!
UPDATE 11/15/15: After Fallout 4 was released I am able to everything on Ultra at 1080p, expect godrays (high) at around 40-60 FPS. The dips only being in certain areas of the game. Of which I can't tell if its due to poor optimization or incompatibilities of the card. Regardless, it is totally playable provided your CPU you is similar to mine listed below with at least 8GB of ram.
I was previously playing CS:GO , Elite Dangerous, Skyrim, MGSV, and Killing Floor 2 at 1920 x 1080 on mostly medium settings, with fps at about 40-50~. Since I have upgraded I been maxing out everything I've been throwing at it at 120+ fps. I don't have a ton of money invested in my PC and I think this card is targeted to those who want to run games at high settings thats currently running on an older card such as the 560.
Also, according to an article by techpowerup if you have an older motherboard (like mine) and only have a PCI-express 1.0 - 1.1 even though this card is a higher version it is backwards compatible and this card will still work perfectly fine with only a performance loss of about 1-2% fps,and that only being very meaningful if you SLI.
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 @ 3.8Ghz
