This is a 90 W part, so a 400W power supply with a PCIe power connector is recommend.

Probably good enough to play almost all modern titles at 1080p at medium/high quality at 60 FPS.

It is a good option for small towers as it is short at 6.7 inches and relatively low power.

clock for clock the 960 is 10% faster than the 950. 10% of $120 is $12... that would be $132. if you are going to get the 960 you should probably go for a 4gb model and at that point the r9-380 4gb is a better choice for raw performance.

either way in games the 950 is considerably faster than a 460.

Thinking about getting this to upgrade my kid's tower. She has a GTX 460 1gb, 24" 1080p monitor, and a 6300 amd gpu. 16gb ram 1tb hd. You think the upgrade is significant enough to warrant? Or should I shoot for a 380 with 4gbs? I'm on the fence. The price is right, and she's only running most games at 1080p, but she wants to play Just Cause 3, so I want to make sure it'll be fine at high/max at that res.

Anyone have any advice?

960 isn't that much more expensive and it's a LOT faster.

Get a GTX960, they can be had for $150 and are a lot faster for newer games.

When was the last time a GTX 960 was $150? And they are not that much faster than a GTX 950. This MSI card is overclocked a bit and should fall somewhere between a standard clocked and MSI's more heavily clocked "Gaming" version. This is a benchmark comparison which averages all of the 22 games tested. This card should land about 15 percent slower than a GTX 960. So even if you could find a $150 GTX 960, this still gives a better price / performance ratio.

Exactly anywhere from 5% to 15% better performance depending on the game but 33%-40% more expensive. The 950 basically zapped any value from the 750ti or 960.

If anyone wants more than the 950 the 970 is the next sensible step considering the 960 is a very minor upgrade while not being a minor price jump.

Is this is a lot better than then the 750 TI. I was gonna purchased that for my son's computer, in retro specs. Does these two graphics card display what a PS3 graphics would displayed?? Sorry such a noob to these things. And I noticed even though the graphics card are the same, its can be made by different manufacturers...for some reason in mind I thought a company owned the right to the graphics card..with that said is there a brand I should try to buy or stay away from?

The 950 is faster than the 750 Ti, but if someone already owns the 750 Ti, then it wouldn't be worth upgrading to the 950. I have a 750 Ti and it has been amazing for a while now, great value card, so I wouldn't upgrade until 4GB cards drop a bit and I need the memory. All modern GPU's are better than any console graphics.
A lot of the brands are the same in regards to the chipset. It really depends. The only difference is build quality. I have always loved MSI, but some people may prefer other manufacturers, just read reviews and make sure it fits inside of your case.

One thing to keep in mind is your power supply needs to have a 6 pin for this graphics card. If not you only have spare sata connectors you will need to get some sata adapter to 6 pin.
