How well can the GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition run games
18 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 291 games in the list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title The Outer Worlds and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 42 FPS, Medium: 33 FPS, High: 22 FPS and Ultra: 16 FPS. We proceeded to look at FIFA 20 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a strong 83 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at The Outer Worlds and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 32 FPS, Medium: 25 FPS, High: 17 FPS and Ultra: 12 FPS. We then checked the performance on FIFA 20 to see if that runs well. It was good with a 63 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition is a reasonable choice at this screen size. You can always tweak modern game graphics settings to help you get a better High graphics setting experience at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition in your PC? This GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 960 Galax OC 2GB Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which is 113% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 920 games from the most demanding games today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 57% better performance and can run 722 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
