One of the best 960s available. The cooler looks great, and performs well (overclocked to 1.4 ghz on the core, was stable and has been stable since day one). I do wish the zotac badge illuminated but it's not much to complain about and certainly nothing big enough to take a star off.

This is the most undersung card I've seen while researching which GTX 960 to buy. If you're looking for performance and affordability, I absolutely cannot recommend this card enough. I have yet to test any games from the last two years or so but I have fully modded Skyrim to complete 4k+ textures and parallax, and I have to say that this card just keeps going and going.
With Unigine Heaven and MSI Afterburner I got the GPU boost clock up to a respectable 1419Mhz (+100Mhz core , +50Mhz Memory and 108% voltage limit). 3Dmark's Firestrike did manage to put this card through its paces rather brutally, seeing some fps drops to 30 or less during the more demanding scenes, but that isn't anything surprising t from just a 960.
If you're building a mid/high end rig on a budget, this card should definitely be on your shopping list.
