GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by Gigabyte.

The Central Unit now runs at 1216MHz, instead of 1127MHz and goes up to 1279MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock and the Frame Buffer remain the same.


Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by Gigabyte's WINDFORCE 2X With Unique Blade Fan which is Equipped with two 90mm unique blade fan and three copper heat pipes. The airflow is spilt through the triangle design at the fan edge, and is guided smoothly through the fan by special 3D stripe curve design.

both have one from best cooling solutions you cant go wrong with both… you can also OC further more if you want so you will get similar performance overall

Probably a nitpick but there might be something wrong here. This is clocked lower than my 960, but GD says mine is 1% worse.

GD takes into consideration many things, not only clock speed.

GD takes into consideration almost all the properties of the card, as far as i can tell (I dont know for sure). But I just compared your card to this card and they are almost identical. The difference being that your card has faster clock speeds and Texture Rate. So I dont really know why it says that this card is 1% better than your's. Might be a bug. Anyway that should really bother you too much :D

Just bought the card! I must say, I'm loving it! Boosted my benchmarks up by quite a bit, and I am seeing a great improvement in games (came from an HD 7850).

I was thinking the same, maybe the ti version will have more vram and more bus memory, and about the psu I don't know anything, there's no brand/mark written on it, it says 450 W and that's it, it's an old psu, but it can handle a gtx460

I had a gtx 460 hawk edition(160W) and an intel core 2 duo E4400(60W) and it worked well, now I have the fx 6350(120W) and I wish I could buy a very good gpu but with less power consumption, and the gtx 960 is good but there's too less bit
