from completed build Skylake Build for my budget
run 3 1080p monitors, and n the stock bios in never makes a noise! (not over the sound of my case fans at least) though I changed the fan curve to keep my whole case cooler, since the fans didnt turn on til 60 C. Which the fan are very powerful and when stress testing my system the fans can get loud but i have not gotten my card to its 80 C ceiling yet.

GTX 960 is great for 1080p gaming and it has enough VRAM for future games.

Can handle almost any game you throw at it maxed out at 1080p, Great "console killer". with that said, For $100 more the 970 is worth it.

-Low priced video card for value, when on sale (buy when it is $150-170)
-Great video card for 1080p gaming
-Will handle 3 monitors just fine
-Very quiet, I can't even hear it run over my case fan's noise.
-Handles overclocking just fine.
-Card is huge, if you don't have room, this is not the card for you.
-It isn't the best card on the market and will struggle to run some new 2016 games.
-The manufacturer rebate takes FOREVER (ie: 6+ months) to get.
Other Thoughts: Because of it's large size depending on your motherboard other pci slots may get covered, however any other decent card will also be similarly sized so this isn't a fault of the card so much as it is the nature of quality cards, just make sure you have room.
Games it handles fine with 60+fps @1080p: Mechwarrior Online, Tomb Raider, Elite Dangerous, Cryengine 5.1, Unreal Engine 4 (v12)

Performs amazingly. Of course, now it isn't worth it anymore, due to newer graphics cards being released. cough cough Pascal cough cough Polaris
I hate my luck.

Under-rated card, IMO. I've overclocked it to 1500mHz with PrecisionX software with no issues, and could probably take it higher if I wanted to. Runs The Sims 3 Into the Future + other EPs at 1680 x 1050 resolution without a hitch.

Maxes out the settings and almost all the games I have to play right now. The fans are super quiet and don't even come on unless they are really needed. The extra 2gb of vram seem to be very much worth it. Very happy with this card.
