    I originally intended to recycle an old RADEON 4870X2 (C. 2008... yeah I know) but it had defects from age and heat, so I grabbed a small profile GTX 950 OC ed. from GIGABYTE. I realized from my research that the 950 was basically a down-clocked 960, so I figured that with the right software tuning I could restore the near 960 performance on the hardware. As I'm not intending to buy a 4k monitor at the moment, I'm more than satisfied with 1080P gaming, and this card is a true workhorse~! Also very small, quiet and power efficient.

    Benchmarks surprisingly show that it out-competes the R7 370X.

    UPDATE: I have successfully overclocked the GTX 950 to a stable:

    Base Clock of 1,289 MHz (VS 1241 MHZ: GTX 960)

    Boost Clock of 1,466 MHz (VS 1,304 MHZ: GTX 960)

    and a memory clock of 6834 MHz...

    with NO other modification (power temp etc)

    The 4GB GDDR5 of the 960 does not provide a significant increase in gaming benchmarks, (although would be sorely missed if trying to run 2 cards in SLI) and the GTX 950 runs 30W/25% cooler than the 960.

    Ya - I cheaped out on the graphics card because I'm not a gamer and I mainly wanted it to be able to push the 4k monitor when editing photos. This proves well with all of those tasks and even performed pretty well with Heaven benchmarking. Will post results later.

    from completed build Old Build

    Plays all the games I want to play. I know it can't handle new games at high settings. Medium to low is better than what I used to be playing at all the time. 40-60fps no less.
