2 gb may be a limit for games like battlefield

No.
Even at 1440p and ultra textures in GTA V and Battlefields, other things generally become an issue before the VRAM runs out. That is, if you want to game at 60+ fps.
If you're fine with 30fps, then you might want to get the 4gb version.

If overclocking is a passion of yours you will LOVE the GTX 960, it has a ton of thermal headroom and is well known for some massive overclocks. On mine, over and above the factory overclocks, I get +152 on the core and +505 on memory. That nets me 1586 boost on the core and 8010 on the memory and that is without a modded vBIOS or increasing the voltage in any way.
HELLAA!!! ah sorry man, i miss-understood your example, im sorry, im pretty much rookie in those things im just trying to improve =)
thank you again for the more other infos you gave me. 1586 boost?O_O on AIR? sound amazing, also the +505 on memory since the factory stock should be 7000-7100 in my model :O

I'm running at 1525/8000 now without issue and I have yet to play anything on less than high settings @ 1080p.  I'm curious to see how the new Tomb Raider will play, but I'm fairly certain  the 4GB will be able to handle it well.   The 960 is by far the best "budget gamer" card out there (for now) and with the right clocks it will be a while before I need to upgrade.

yes maybe it's like u said, i am the kind of gamer tho that prefer mid-high details with 60+ fps avg respect ultra details with 30 fps or so (remember hardest graphics moments in any games with 30 fps will drop to 20 least, with 60 they would not lower to 45-50 i guess)

Depends on the game really, and how well the developer's have optimized it for PC.  A.K. dips as low as 30 fps, or lower, during more intense scenes but is usually 45-60 with everything on max. I haven't played GTA V on PC only because I already had it for PS3.  The next new game I'll probably get is the new TR and we'll see how that goes.

yeah , It depends on the game, you are right mate. I wasn't even supposed to tell that a 960 2 gb would be not able to hold high end games with 60+ fps, i just specified, to be as clear as possible, which is my general preference in games. I prefer to lower graphics details if for enhance the FPS stability, just that. About the depending on game thing, you are FULL right. For example with some games like battlefield or gta or other generic driving games, the FPS ratio would be performance during ur gaming experience, if you have 50 to 60 fps during the first 10 minutes of playing, you will hardly have ever less to 45-40 fps ever. There are also RTS games, games like starcraft 2 or so. In those games u might have with this card, all ultra details shader included ultra, about 200+ fps in the first 10 seconds (i also have 140-150 fps + initially with my 750 ti). Those games run slower depending on the spell numbers , the light numbers , the quality of unit fighting and on the camera scroll and the various cloackings, fps can go lower to 10-15 fps in very hard battles, after the 140-150 you had in the first seconds. Just to say, it's right, every game is different, i believe about testing games in the hardest situations with a good fraps benchmark, draw the bottom fps you scored, and decide if the details you had on the game are proper or not. Game depend also on the minimum/average FPS required to define ur gaming session satisfying. In the starcraft 2 example, be never lower to 50 fps, have avg of 65-80(under the hardest possible situations) and your fps may be ok to play at the best you can. I also think games like carmageddon, need for speed , or gta, pay in terms of gaming experience if ALWAYS over 30 fps not more, depend on the games, camera-scroll involving games, especially if they call multitask and mini-map move do require more fps in my opinion.

i just bought EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB FTW GAMING w/ACX 2.0+ Whisper Silent Cooling w/ Free Installed Backplate Graphics Card

I hope to test it in my 4790k rig (for several months) but ultimately I'll stick it into a future rig where the cpu doesn't have video
I didn't want to buy a 1-2GB cheap video card since the cost is half way to 960
post #619 of 865
Witch 960 do you think is the best all around considering the price as a factor?

My gigabyte gtx 560 soc has died recently and i'm considering my options. Gigabyte seem good but with mi recent incident im a bit concerned with their durability.
post #620 of 865
Hello guys, i do see that the 960 gtx turbo oc asus model does have 3 digital ports. Is it better, if i both have hdmi link on monitor, and on videocard, but also a hdmi female to digital port male connector, if i link the monitor by the hdmi port to the digital port, or directly to the hdmi one? thank you
