Frys currently has a EVGA GeForce GTX 960 2GB SSC $149.99 after $30 Rebate + $50 Promo code w/ FS. I think it's a rather decent deal.

Not sure how to add link as I don't see any button to input? If someone wants to help add link through comment or share advice on how to add to the green button I would appreciate it. (Im using the mobile app)

Long card. At this price I think I'm waiting to see what the 1050, 460/470 look like. 950 and 960 prices should drop lower and soon.

Pretty much this.

460 should end up around 950 performance (any lower and there's no point justifying the purchase against the cheaper 750ti or r7 360), but the real winner here is the 470. With very similar architecture to it's older brother and only slightly slowly, I would expect to see about ~20% difference from the 4gb 480, but that's a mere difference of 50 vs 60fps for $50 less. Of course reference cards will always be slower and after market cards are usually a tad more expensive, but with new DX12 games and updated drivers I'm guessing the $150 card out the door will surpass the 960 (which should be $150 retail at this point).

That's what I'm wondering. Also, you could bought one of these for the same price or less like 6 months ago, when it was still somewhat relevant.

The deal may only be "OK", but this is actually a great card for someone who wants a 4k desktop over HDMI but doesn't mind gaming at 1080p... Now, it isn't a whole lot faster than a GTX 950 for the same purpose, but definitely better performance to run higher, mainly max settings at 1080p at least. The new 1060, if you can even find it for $250, is intended mainly for 1080p-1440p max anyway, so this card does serve a purpose.

To answer everyone's big question of who would buy this, I would- because I need a card right now or very soon. I would go for a 950 over a 960, because they're a little cheaper. But I do want a 950/960, now.

Yes there's the 1060 but it's $250 minimum and more GPU than I need. And it's more than I want to spend for the very old system the card is going into. Waste of money to go beyond the ~$100 mark on an old computer.

The 950/960 is still relevant though. They're the only 900 series cards with great media acceleration, both have full hardware VP9 decoding, no other 900 cards do. So if you have an older CPU as I do, and still do some gaming on the machine, a 950/960 is exactly what the doctor ordered to pep up an old machine.

Yes you can wait for the 1050 and I wish I could, but it really wouldn't make much diff in an older system anyway. BUT Evga does have their Step-Up program. Something you could potentially use for the 1050 if it's a good deal.
