So I got this GPU because it was a steal at $130, and was a little better than the GTX 950 SSC from EVGA. Plus, it's got a noticable increase in CUDA cores over the 950. All in all, I wouldn't recommend it because it's simply not available. Or, if it is, its MSRP is $410. Don't do it unless you were in my exact circumstance, which I doubt you are.
Since this is also my first build, I don't have much to compare it with besides reading specs.
$50 for THIS card. literally a steal. Plays games at max settings 1080p.
I'll be honest here: this is the least exciting part of my build. I got this from a friend who didn't need it anymore (thanks dude!). He sold it to me for $50 and I used it in my old computer until I got my new one up and running. I'll probably upgrade to something else when the prices drop lower but for now she's probably the weakest part in my entire build. And that being said, it STILL runs really really well. But this will certainly be the first piece I upgrade when I get the chance.
