    The nomodeset does not help, it only prevents that X is not loaded from the Kernel so you end up with only a command line on your screen.
    Installing the latest drivers only doesn't solve either the problems. What needed is you have to first install the latest Linux images/Kernels, so you have to install Linux Kernel 4.0/4.1 or higher else Nvidia's Geforce GTX 960 will not work.

    I switched to Debian Sid from Ubuntu alphas due to worries about the Snappy transition. Yes, it is usual that updates are always partial, this is no big deal. As for GCC5, that just meand bringing packages into my systems as they became installable and did not segfault. I have all of MATE build locally with gtk3, only mate-system-monitor even needed a rebuild for gcc5. Compiz was a pleasant surprise: As it is a C++ program I expected it to break and require a rebuild but my previous build (of a special version for gtk3.16 and gtk3.17) worked fine. Rebuilt anyway, works fine that way too.

    Try to boot with nomodeset parameter. Then install latest Nvidia drivers.

    Has anyone managed to get Debian Jessie 8.x installed with an Nvidia GTX960 video card? On my system i get during boot this message:
    "fb: switching to nouveaufb"
    and then the screen hangs.

    Ha, I always find it hilarious when people bitch that sid/experimental break. It's called 'unstable/experimental' for a reason. I run Testing (Stretch) because A) generally speaking everything is installable, B) it is only 10 days behind (unless there is a serious issue with the package). Granted it broke yesterday (missing dependencies) but I only had to wait until the mirror was fully updated (it's working today) so I just took note last night of all the crap that was removed and am re-installing today.

    That was done:

    Two test rebuilds of Debian testing/unstable on amd64 were done in January and April, and bug reports filed for the packages.

    How about using sid/experimental for their purposes - t.i. testing packages? No one forces you to jump on sid.
