    I've got a Gigabyte GV-N760OC-2GD (rev. 2.0) which is running great with nvidia blob.
    I think I'll skip the 9xx series.

    Well I have a GTX 660 but I think it?s too early to upgrade it. I bought it only one year ago and most/all games run great at high settings. Also I?m not sure about the improvement in performance since Michael doesn?t have a GTX*660 to compare but it doesn?t seem like a very compelling upgrade (still 120W and not less, more expensive, not a huge FPS increase (?)).
    Some of the other benchmarks I've seen shows it about 50% faster than the 660 in Metro LL, or about equivalent to a 770. But I'm with you... I'm still on a 570 and am waiting for Source 2 to upgrade to whatever is new at that time.

    Veske is right, this is hardly an upgrade from GTX 760. But also keep in mind that GTX 960 retail for $50 less, so it's probably targeting a lower market segment.

    I guess most sensible gamers upgrade their rig whenever it's too slow to run the desired games, and if this is the case for you I would recommend looking at GTX 970. Not only is GTX 970 over 50% more powerful, but it also features 4GB memory and larger bandwidth suited for higher resolution and AA. So buying a GTX 970 instead of GTX 960 will give a longer lasting rig, and keep in mind it's the cost per day that counts.

    But I guess those who don't care that much about performance will be satisfied with a GTX 960 for 1080p gaming.

    Anyway, whether you go for GTX 750Ti, 960, 970 or 980, I would recommend the Strix coolers from Asus. They are completely quiet at idle and medium load. I've tried it on a GTX 750Ti.
