Probably the slickest 960m deal I've found, doesn't seem to have been posted yet.

edit:
FYI, seems to be a poor TN screen, just saw it in person. I didn't get one because of this. Looked really bad...

Does this one actually have the IPS panel or is it like the one at Best Buy where it listed IPS on the item description, but it actually came with a TN panel.

I don't know where I got that, I don't actually see IPS anywhere. Thanks for pointing that out, I'll remove it from the description.

(I hope it does though, I'll see when I pick it up later today and if it does I'll report back)

I've looked everywhere, there's not much info on this model. It's almost as if it's a Micro Center exclusive.

I honestly won't know how to tell when I get it unless it's listed somewhere. If I find out I'll let you all know.

I removed 'IPS' from the title and added "In Store Only". Thanks for the heads up.

It's better than any integrated video and is the budget gaming video card for people who want to play but don't want to pay at least $100 more 970M+

$100 would be the better investment

I am pretty sure this is a TN panel, most manufacturers will advertise IPS panels and microcenter also advertises them in their ads (no mention of IPS by Microcenter or Asus for this model).

Yeah, OP here. I went to MC and they had this on display. The screen looks like ass. I passed on it.
