The EVGA GeForce GTX 960 delivers incredible performance, power efficiency, and gaming technologies that only NVIDIA Maxwell technology can offer. This is the perfect upgrade, offering 60% faster performance and twice the power efficiency of previous generation cards. Plus, it features VXGI for realistic lighting, support for smooth, tear free NVIDIA GSYNC technology, and Dynamic Super Resolution for 4Kqualitygaming on 1080Pdisplays. The latest versions come outfitted with 4GB of high speed GDDR5 memory giving you higher texture qualities and better 4K performance! The new EVGA ACX 2.0+ cooler brings new features to the award winning EVGA ACX 2.0 cooling technology. A Memory MOSFET Cooling Plate (MMCP) reduces MOSFET temperatures up to 11C, and optimized Straight Heat Pipes (SHP) reduce GPU temperature by an additional 5C. ACX 2.0+ coolers also feature optimized swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor, delivering more air flow with less power, unlocking additional power for the GPU.

1 - AMD cards ALWAYS require more power, and use more power (substantially more) than the comparable NVIDIA cards (for example, this card will draw about 108 Watts in a gaming scenario, whereas the comparable AMD Radeon R9 285 in a comparable gaming scenario will draw about 176 Watts). No, this difference isn't going to destroy an electric bill, but over time, it would add up, making the AMD card more expensive in the long run.
2 - AMD cards typically run hotter than the comparable NVIDIA cards as well, not as much of a difference here, but I preferred to play it safe.
Now why I chose the EVGA model?
It didn't come down to much, just really chose something I figured would be solid. I really liked that this card had a backplate, as well as so many connectivity options. I also purchased the Super SuperClocked version, giving this card the biggest possible advantage for it being a 960, and EVGA's overclocking software is fairly convenient to use, especially when you're using one of their cards.
On to actual thoughts:
I really like this card. I had really high hopes for how it would perform, and it holds up to most of those. You won't be playing Dying Light or The Witcher III: Wild Hunt on completely maxed Ultra settings, that I can guarantee you. But it does stand up very well to modern titles and is completely capable of playing anything on the market right now, at varying qualities, but it can play most titles around about one step down from Ultra. It runs fairly cool, I need to rework my fan setup and some other cooling things in my case, but it does cool itself just fine, no worry of thermal bottlenecking.
I was surprised by the weight when I got it out of the package, not to mention the size, this card is hefty to say the least. The coating is a matte finished black with some decals, and the backplate is a glossy black (nice feature by the way). The connection ports all come with black port blockers to keep dust and debris from causing connectivity issues, and it also comes with a power cable adapter, which most people will need to use, and it comes with a DVI to VGA adapter, so this can literally use nearly every display connection type there is, granted there is a clear bias towards Display Port with 3 of them being included.
The card fit just fine in my Zalman Z11 Plus case, and works well with my ASUS Z97-A motherboard.

Upon opening the box I joked that EVGA had mistakenly sent me a small motherboard instead of a GPU. It is massive compared to my old AMD R7.
Installation: You will need space for this beast, look at the photo included to get an idea of the size. Once I made room I had no difficulties getting the GPU to seat in the PCI connector, I did find the power connection difficult. So difficult that I removed the GPU, and spent a few minutes trying to figure out why it would not seat, I finally finessed the power input into the socket with some force. Reseated the GPU and was good to go. The GPU comes with a CD with the Drivers on it, plus overclocking software.
(It is recommended that you register the GPU before the installation since the S/N can only be found on the bottom of the GPU)
Playing Elite Dangerous is like night and day. Where I struggled on low/mid graphics with the R7, the 960 plays on high settings, and putting on the Oculus Rift was stunning. I am now finally able to appreciate the power of VR, Oculus needs to hurry up with the 4k consumer version it will be a must have.
The Secret World is a whole new game with the visuals maxed out, a whole new game.
There is nothing worse than a gamer with a sub-par rig, and after extensive research over a few days I chose the 960 and a EVGA Supernova 750W G2 power supply to fuel the beast. I am very happy that I did.
The GPU is not that noisy, if you have ever had a high speed hard drive it is comparable to that, and yet to have had any heat issues, which I felt might be a concern because the massive size.
I am also much happier with NVIDIA's control center, I found AMD's Catalyst to be annoying.
Not sure what else to say but, I am a happy gamer!
