    $25 bux isnt bad at all, especially for the overclocked edition. i'd do it if your fee to return the other card is below $10.

    well i mean thankfully since i got it at best buy there is no return fee, I was just wondering if the 14% performance bump would be worth the extra 25 bucks or if in real world performance i wont notice it at all
  3. The difference between a gtx 960 and gtx 950 is like 5-8 fps, both can only play at 1080p med-high settings, you can overclock the gtx 950 which is quite easy and it'll perform about same or a bit better than a stock gtx 960.

    1080P medium-high settings with either of those cards. Both will be 2gb.

    I'd keep the gtx 950 and upgrade to a better GPU later.

    You will notice the difference between a stock gtx 950 and stock gtx 960 , about 8 fps or a bit more, if returning is easy then it is worth some extra, you can overclock the gtx 960 anytime.
  5. The difference won't be like 960 to 970, probably a few more fps.
  6. a 960 is not to much better than a 950 i would keep the 950 and get the next pascal or volta gpus coming out in the next two years
  7. still think its completely worth $25 difference over here.

    So I went ahead and just got the 960 FTW its only for a few months anyways I'm gonna build a 6th gen intel with a 970 thanks for your suggestion!
