Windows 7: Trying to put a little zip in my grandpa computer

No problem buddy
It's a nice choice 4gb memory and 1gb cuda cores nice base and boost clocks
So it is twice the memory than the 2 prior gtx's we posted but is still a good card and of course budget always rules the day

If you want register the card with evga sign in and download Precision x for free and control it if you feel the need too
I don't use it on my evga 980 hybrid but it's there if you feel the need too
Cheers.

I would usually only use something like Precision x/ gpu tweak for the built in gaming mode which is an easy oc if a game might require a bit more boost.
You can only do so much in NVidia control panel.

Well I didn't remember but Precision x does not have a gaming mode like gpu tweak does,
But just installing precision x did make my hybrid preform a little better,

Did you change the setting or did you just let the program change them (auto)?

Hi,
I didn't change anything just installed Precision x 16's most recent version and got a slight bump
I wish it was like gpu tweak with the gaming mode it is too freaking easy to activate and switch back to default mode :/
gpu tweak is a asus utility which I use on my x99 build with the asus 980-P 20th anniversary gold
Precision x is now on my Acer transplant where gaming isn't expected.

I recommend you try to get the card you want directly from EVGA.

The one you chose is out of stock, but if you`re in no hurry you can keep an eye on it for awhile.

This one is a bit more, but in stock now.

EVGA - Products - EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB FTW GAMING ACX 2.0+ - 04G-P4-3969-KR

And Jack, stay with a 4 GB card.

Thanks for the information.
Just checked. The card is being shipped as I type.

Edit:
I can't ordere from EVGA. I don't use credit cards or Paypal or anything like them.

Yea I don't buy from evga either it's usually cheaper at Newegg... anyway plus you don't have to mess with evga's horrible supply baiting
But yes nothing like a local retailers for goods

Ya it depends where you live, Newegg charges me tax, so anything expensive like a card is out of the question from them, EVGA, Corsair, Tigerdirect, etc don`t tax me.

Micro Center is a half hour away plus bridge toll and they have diddly squat when it comes to stock, I only use them to purchase new CPU`s
