What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 STRIX Direct CU II Graphics Card
  • This gfx is awesome. Using it for VR. Dk2 runs smooth as hell on elite dangerous. Replaced my 780ti kingpin.
  • Excellent card with much power in its price range. One of the fastest core speeds in its category.
  • This card was designed from the very beginning to fit into the existing Nvidia lineup between the 750ti (which is seen as an excellent casual gamer card) and the 970.
  • Good budget card, but one might want to go for the 4GB. 2 dose not cut it in GTA V on maxed out graphics, needs that extra bit of memory that this just cant deliver at 2GB.

What customers say about "Features"
 
ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 STRIX Direct CU II Graphics Card
  • The asus strix version makes it all the better with the many features in the sofrware.
  • At the time of purchase it was a good card. Now there are better cards for the price but this item has never let me down and the overclocking feature really pushes the card.
  • The logo lights up along the card which is a nice touch but this feature can be turned off in the settings.
  • The silent fan mode is cool too, but the fans aren't loud at all when at full load.
  • It came with plastic protective covers over the pci-e, sli and dvi ports, a small manual and a cd.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
 
ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 STRIX Direct CU II Graphics Card
  • Lastly the card itself has 1 Displayport (1.2), 1 HDMI (2.0), DVI-I port and a DVI-D port.
  • Comes with a wide variety of ports. HDMI & Display Port are a complete waste of space, so use DVI & stop being a peasant.
  • Only uses 1x power connector (unlike many of its competitors which unnecessarily use 2)
  • I have been trying to fix it but on start up there is static lines over the screen running on HDMI or display port and doesn't do anything after the bios menu.
