Low Profile and low noise .. is 64Bits card runing GDDR5 1GB .. worth for money ...
Not a very good suggestion, actually. The card only has a 64 bit bus. Even the sub-par ASUS card has a 128 bit bus and would perform better than this one, unfortunately.

WOW, calm down, I just threw the Asus card into the mix to see what you guys thought -

I am going to stay with EVGA because I am familiar with the brand -

Will be ordering this one, comes with installed back plate and a $15.00 rebate card from the Egg -

EVGA GeForce GTX 960 04G-P4-3967-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling w/ Free Installed Backplate Graphics Card - Newegg.com

I will post back here after install -


Thanks for opinions -

Yep 128-bit but I don't believe 256-bit started until the 970 series which as posted will be another 100.us
That evga has good clocks you'll have fun with it
I would suggest MSI afterburner instead of evga's precisionX software to oc the card if you want to do that sort of thing that is

Finally have the new GTX 960 installed and running without problems, had to RMA the 1st card back to EVGA, one of the fans would not spin up at boot and just clunked trying to spin (yes these fans do spin at boot for about 20 seconds then stop until a specified temp is reached, I think that is around 60 degrees C ). EVGA was great to work with, had a new card in about a week then shipped the defective one back.

Thanks again to all for their suggestions

Hi,
Yep I would use msi afterburner to make a custom fan mode
The reason they make a temperature on deal is to be quiet but that builds the case temp up so you do need very good ventilation
I would set it to run a 40c that way the case temp will be lower over all.

Sorry about being a little snippy there JoeN, I apologies for that

I had to send one of my Ti`s back when I 1st got it, so much for quality control.

But glad to hear you`re up and running.
