ASUS GeForce GTX 960 STRIX-GTX960-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card [] from
$185 - MIR $30 = AR $155.

Not really a slick deal, but a warm deal. $155 for GTX 960 4G is good enough for me to pull the trigger. Not for gamming, but for the entry level GPU Smilie

Not for gaming? Use integrated graphics then.

People should wait until the GTX 1060 is in stock to push prices down further. Retailers are just trying to get you to nip with barely better deals to clear out inventory. We're only now starting to see some GTX 1070s get close to MSRP.

While 960 isn't top tier, it's still a pretty good card and far from a actual entry level GPU. It plays Fallout 4 @ 1080 for me just great. Buying it if you're not planning to do any gaming is just a waste.

Hi, Thanks for your opinions & suggestion. I have compared the prices of gtx 970, gtx 980, gtx 1070, gtx 1080, gtx titan, gtx titan x. Those are good, but over my budget. The initial budget is under $200 for a decent GPU. It is used for machine learning, deep learning experiment. For a real deal, need to have 3 to 4 gtx 1080 on a single machine. The hardware cost, including CPU, GPU, ram, mother board, is about 5-7K. That is way above a beginner level cost.

If you're just playing around with compute or CUDA, then even a GeForce GTX 750 would probably be sufficient to get your feet wet, and can be had for under $100 without rebates.

If you want to go old school, the Tesla C2090 and M2090 are cheap used on eBay and have much better double precision performance, but you are stuck with CUDA 2.0, which may not be supported by the latest and greatest compute projects.

I pulled the trigger on this earlier.. People keep on saying wait for the 1060 to come out and the price will even go lower but i realize that fry's has a 30 days price matching so just ask them to adjust the price if ever it goes lower

Really depends on your use. I do not think this will drop significantly with the release of the 1060 ($250 card compared to this that has been hovering around $150-160). This will likely drop a lot when the gtx 1050Ti comes out in 1-2 months. The 1060 is also comparable to the 980, which is a whole different ballpark.

Everyone is different base on their $$$ and what their needs are, so I was just give info on what I know/think. I personally was waiting for the rx 480, but looks like 1060 is more suitable for my needs (yes, I do hate waiting, been waiting since May lol)
