Does this require a 6 pin power cord or no? I know some gtx 750 and 950 models dont.

Why get a GTX 950 when you can get an RX 460 for $9ish more?

Warning: this is the same rebate that newegg offered earlier in the month. If you did it there for this graphics card, don't do it here.

I am curious too, any reason to get the gtx 950 over the newer Rx 460?

Because both cards aim at e-sports and GTX 950 is just better at that. Some benchmarks give a nod towards RX 460 but majority of what I have seen put GTX 950 ahead of RX460. On top of that 2GB RX 460 starts at $110 now, while 4GB version is $140 or more. Also most reviews have used 4GB versions like ASUS Strix so I can imagine that GTX 950 will be even better compared to 2GB RX 460 non-OC. And even on another top of that GTX 950 is much easier to overclock.

Why do you want to overpay for something not as good as this cheaper card? See my post above. GTX 950 is the best card what you can get it around $100, There is a huge void hole between $100 and $200 now, nothing fills it up. It's either GTX 950 or next viable option is GTX 1060 3GB or RX 470 4GB

Lots of benchmarks out there for both the 950 and 460. Depending on where you go one card will have a slight lead over the other. When you look at the reviews and benchmarks in the aggregate I haven't found any conclusive evidence that one is superior to the other. For me, if you are looking at either card, I would recommend picking up the cheaper.

Neither of these cards are powerhouses or create any sort of "future proofing". You are buying these cards because you are on a tight budget and you do light gaming. For that audience it doesn't do much good to fret over whether you should choose one or the other.

rebate is limit 2 per product so you can do it again within limits - it is Channel-wide so a purchase @Newegg also counts

I bought the gtx 950 during the newegg sale. I was struggling with obtaining anything higher than 30hz 4K prior to the purchase. this issue not only fixed the issue, but gets killer 100+fps with 720p games. if you're like me and multitask and play games in windowed vs full screen this gpu is perfect.

Yes, assuming you didn't already buy 2 from Newegg. Wink

Care you share where you are finding the RX460 for under $100? Search is unable to find any such deals.
