My unboxing is for the MSI GTX 960 . First thing,i came to own it when i was  putting together a complete new build . I had heard of the  900 series coming out and was already interested in getting one . The salesperson had also recommending one . Of course i had wanted to get the  highest model i could but  got the  960 cause the price fit better with my wallet  since i had alot more to buy . I was not disappointed . The packaging is nice and appealing , and the card is wrapped nicely and packed with some documentation . I have the red and black model and the colors of the 960 looked really good and blended well with my color scheme i was  going to put together .  I have some red and white lighting in the case . The 960 isnt too big so fitting in my mid tower case was no problem . It comes with 1 hdmi , 1 dvi , and 3 display ports . My version is 2 gb memory . The cooling setup on it is very nice . It runs fairly cool and the fans barely turn on and when they do they are  very quiet and i dont hear them . The msi gaming app is also cool , you can control the  behavior of the led on the card and some  other options for changing modes of the card . You can also use msi afterburner to modify settings .  I am %100 satisfied with my choice and it performs well with my games i play . I can run ultra settings on all of my games i play  with no problems .  It has base and boost clocks of 1127/1178 silent mode , 1190/1253 gaming mode , and 1241/1304 oc mode . I would recommend this card to everyone who wants a good card without spending alot of money . I purchased mine for $209 at fry's electronics and im sure they are  probably cheaper at some other places .  My future plan is to get one more 960 to run sli , and will be a cheap upgrade from what i have now .

Nice rig and nice upgrade, I just upgraded from my SLI 660 set up, I loved those cards and they still benchmark higher than a stock 970 but I run 3 monitors in Surround/Eyefinity and 2GB of vram just dose not cut it for me anymore. The Benchmarks can also be a little misleading when compairing to in game performance. SLI rigs will do better in a bench mark but not some games.When I play Alpha or Beta access games I usually have to disable SLI or it runs WORSE than just on one card. Thats why I went up a price bracket and got a 390 and I still might get another one in 6-12 months when the price drops.
