ASUS GeForce GTX 960 STRIX-GTX960-DC2OC-2GD5 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fans don't engage until card hits about 60C.
Multiple settings with GPU Tweak: OC, Gamer (more OC), and Silent.
One of the most overclocked GTX 960 cards from the factory.
Only needs one 6 pin Pci-Express connector.
MFAA support for newer games means less FPS loss with AA.
ASUS quality build.

Cons: 128-Bit Bus and 2GB of VRAM, but that's fine as long as you don't plan to go past 1080p.

Other Thoughts: I have a 1080p monitor. I am not planning to upgrade at any in the near future. So this card is perfect for me.

Upgraded from a GTX 660 and I love the FPS boost I get in games now. And the card still only uses one 6 pin connector, so I did not have to change out my PSU. On top of that it runs cooler, and is not constantly throwing hot air into my room, so my room does not turn into a hot box when I close the door.

Card hits about 50C when just browsing the web for me in my mATX case. But I put a 120mm fan at the front bottom of my case to suck in air and blow it on the card. Now its 46C while browsing the web. I don't think the card ever went over 60-65C when I started gaming with it.

Got a nice FPS boost in all my games. I bought this so I could run Evolve at 60FPS when it launches. My GTX 660 was only giving me 45FPS on low settings @1080p.

ECS GTX660A-2GR5-WFM G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Geforce Experience can set "Optimal settings" to get a good balance between performance and quality. Shame it doesn't work on all games, just some that is supports.

50-70 fps in Metro 2033 on Optimal Settings
70-110 fps Bioshock Infinite on Optimal Settings
30-45 fps Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon on Ultra Settings

Standard GPU temp never goes above 73C, GPU limit is 95C, so there is room for overclock.

Cheapest new GTX 660 for $140

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: My System:

Resolution: 1680x1050
AMD Phenom II X4 820 @ 3.0Ghz

ENCORE ENEWI-1XN42 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works without a problem.
Detachable antenna.

Cons: None.
