GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by MSI.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1241MHz, instead of 1127MHz and goes up to 1304MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock while the Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB - a gimmick in most situations, as the graphics card doesn't prove to be powerful enough to run under circumstances in which 4GB are needed.


Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Dual Fan Twin Frozr V Cooling Solution. This means the card runs cooler under load.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.

Maybe, but i don't like radeon anymore because of the driver problems. I own an radeon hd 6990 and the amd catalyst is so bad… Geforce experience is way more better. Its my firs nvidia videocard and i would never buy an amd again, maybe if they will improve the catalyst.

I would recommend upgrading your CPU in the future, but for now it should fine.

Which GPU would be better for my 6300: this one or Radeon R9 380 MSI Gaming 4GB? Would having an all-AMD rig get my any kind of advantage in performance etc?

R9 380, get's very hot tho, I have this GPU and I get 65 degrees when I'm running Arma 3 on OC and everything maxed -45 fps.
Which I guess it's pretty good.

I need Shadowplay for my YouTubing, so the 960 is already good. I'm really trying to get the 960 4GB but I just sometimes think it could have been better. Like if you watch a side by side comparison you only notice about 10-15 fps difference which, to be honest, I'm not even sure if its worth it…

trust me r9 290 is lot more powerfull then gtx 960 or r9 380 it will cary you atleast 2-3years more playing games on ultra tweaked ultra settings 1080p for sure.. you are going to get only about 15-20more performance so this means only 10fps +- more… id say not worth at all
