GeForce GTX 950 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 950 2GB is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.


Architecture
GeForce GTX 950 2GB Features a GPU Codenamed GM206-250 which is a Second Gen Maxwell GPU. It offers DirectX Feature Level of 12.1 and the Third Generation Delta Color Compression Technology which increases bandwidth efficiency by 30%.
It has 6 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs.


GPU
The central unit runs at 1024MHz and goes up to 1188MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1653MHz.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 90W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and one available 6-pin connector.


Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Similar Performance to AMD's Radeon R9 270X, using the best suited Resolution - 1920x1080.
As a Result, AMD's Radeon R9 370 is considerably slower and Large Factory Overclocked Versions of GeForce GTX 950, may match GeForce GTX 960's Performance.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 950 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

I don't think so buddy and are you sure you have DDR4?
Upgrading to anything below a GTX 970 is a waste of money…

It's risky but you will be fine. However, I assume you won't overclock it because doing so raises its TDP to over 120W, sometimes.

what are you talking about? His PSU delivers 20A through the 12V Rail. That's 12x20 = 240 Watts at most for the Graphics Card. Even SLI is risky.

I am sorry. I googled that PSU and find out, it really does have only one 20A on 12V "branch" (not sure, if I can use this word here). I thought Franksmith just forgot to write the rest. I hadn't thought something **ty like this would even exist… What the hell is this PSU for? And efficiency 65%?!
However this GPU should be "ok" with it.


And again, sorry, my mistake.
Thanks Pip :-)

What does "23 amps" means: PSU total amps,not the 12v amps, right? (How do i calculate PSU total amps?)
