Found this on newegg with $20 rebate.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...-_-Product

This is the lowest price I've seen without using other discounts/coupons like VCO, cash back, etc.

You can sell the game for around $40 if you want to make this card even cheaper.

Is this a much better deal than: the msi-geforce-gtx-750 for $80 posted 4 days ago?

I'm looking to edit video on my desktop
I would probably go for the 750ti. I think video editing is more CPU intensive than GPU, but if your main purpose is video editing then I don't think 960 has big enough performance gap for twice the price.

I'm using this card mostly has a hybrid HTPC/mid-level gaming setup in a mitx case. This card won't get you the best performance for the price but it does get you the least wattage requirement and heat output for the price.

Man, I've been out of the Tech Spec game for so long, I feel like a n00b all over.

I currently have a i5-4430, 12gbRam, with a Radeon HD 7800 series (I couldn't find out which exact card I have through the device manager). I'm thinking of starting a YouTube channel, and editing after work or on weekends.

I read that its more CPU dependent vs GPU, but would the 750ti or 960 help at all?

Thanks tons bro!

If you already have a 7850 or similar card, then 750ti won't be an upgrade for you at all. a gtx 960 would be faster, especially for gaming, but for purposes of video editing i don't think it's worth it.

If anything, I would upgrade to a i5 4690k cpu and overclock it, assuming you have a compatible motherboard to do so.

I would personally go for the XFX R9 280 [newegg.com] which is faster and has more memory and its around the same price.
