What's the Difference between the EVGA GeForce GTX 960 2GB SSC GAMING ACX 2.0, the EVGA GeForce GTX 960 2GB GAMING ACX 2.0

What's the difference between

EVGA GeForce GTX 960 2GB SSC GAMING ACX 2.0

EVGA GeForce GTX 960 2GB GAMING ACX 2.0

EVGA GeForce GTX 960 Superclocked Gaming ACX 2.0 2GB

I am upgrading my GPU for my PC, and I was wondering what the difference between these three are, and which one is best. Also, I'm on a budget, and if you think another GPU is better for around $200, let me know.

Specs:
i5 6600 3.3Ghz

EVGA GeForce 8800 gs

Asus Z170-A ATX

EVGA 500w

8gb of DDR4 RAM

WD Blue 1TB

Corsair 200R Case


Thanks in advance for the help!

  1. guaranteed out of the box clocks ?

    so I assume go with the best out of the box factory overclock ?? also I would look at the 4gb cards over the 2gb there prices anit so great and yyou got it if its ever needed
  2. I would go with the SSC because it has a second BIOS to fall back to if anything ever happens to the primary one. It also has the highest clock speed out of the three.
  3. the 2ed bios is nothing but from standard to performance mode they don't say how the 2 chips [if it really has 2 separate chips] work or if its just a advance setting built in to 1 bios chip

    like a mother board has a uefi / legacy select ?? still on just one bios chip


    its just one bios chip with advance profile setting from the switch

    Should I go with the 2gb or 4gb version?

    The extra VRAM will help with things like graphics design and video editing, if all you're going to do is game at 1080p or below then I don't see you needing the 4GB.

    However, having more VRAM is never a bad thing and may help in the future.

    Sorry to bother you again, but I have one last question. The 2gb and 4gb look like they're the same price on amazon, so should I just get the 4gb?

  9. why would you not ? also the higher clocked 4gb 960 FTW card is 189 after rebate at newegg ??

    Thanks!
  11. nothing wrong with the ssc but it was aslso 189 and the higher end card in the ftw and 4gb was 189 after rebate may be a nice deal , kinda hard to over look it at that price

    pretty much there all just 960 cards but its the speced rated clock on each one is what evga will stand behind and guarantee out of the box

    so you could say the ftw is higher factory clocked so maybe its better binned parts that evga will stand behind that as a more premium card over a card that they set at a lesser clock rate..
