they're clearing these out to make room for the imminent arrival of the Pascal-based GT1050Ti and the 1050 in October? still, a Maxwell card with a free game for 90 bucks is a good deal. I only wish it was a better game
I got the MSI Gaming 2g version (full size with dual fan heatsink stays under 60 celcius) back in Jan for $150 ($120 after rebate). Great card. Won't run VR, but it does exceptionally well for its price.
If you can't afford one of the 1000 series cards and need an upgrade, I recommend the 950.
Passmark has the 950 as the 2nd best "bang for the buck" card out there right now behind the recently-released GTX 1060 (at 2x the price). This has been a best-value card for months now. I've purchased two (2) 950s from EVGA and they support everything that I play fine. I don't think I've ever seen the card fans come on except for startup.
It's the top rated card type that can be mother board powered and usable with a 350w supply that's pretty common on better PCs. Full size version is also a great deal at $20 more and is clocked 10% faster. If you have a PC with the Intel Skylake video bug, this is an easy fix with substantially better performance. I bought a used Asus M32CD PC. (usb3.1 8gb ddr4, 1tb, i5 6400 processor. It had the skylake vid bug which I got to work by using the generic windows driver but hardly what I wanted. Bought the 950 card and it's running great. Kept the 1tb HDD, threw on a case fan I kept from an old PC for kicks, installed the OS on an 256gb SSD and along with the card, have about $350 into a peppy device that can play most games.
Would there be any benefit for me to upgrade my card from a GeForce GTX 550 Ti on a i5-4430 system ?? I don't play any games just plan on upgrading my monitor to something 4k soon and i also stream some movies to my 4k TV over hdmi
